Throat Chakra is Responsible For

The Throat Chakra is responsible for communication and morality. The effect of lower chakras upon higher ones is most prominent in the Throat Chakra. The Heart Chakra's receiving and giving can be observed in the throat chakra's balance of listening and speaking respectively. Moreover, ones level of confidence, enjoyment of life, and sense of security resonates in the individual's vocal volume, tone of voice and choice of words. An underactive throat chakra leaves one to be inexpressive, shy, and possibly withhold words that may be urgent or dire. An overactive throat chakra leads one to interrupt others and domineer conversations and in more extreme cases to speak without thinking at all. One with a balanced throat chakra is an honest open person with a good balance between listening and speaking.
