The fifth chakra is located in the throat and neck area. It relates to speech, hearing, communication and self-expression. Blockages in this area manifest problems like sore throats, laryngitis, and creative blocks or general problems communicating with others.
Having a healthy throat chakra can ensure that you are able to express yourself and your own ideas, while peacefully communicating and listening to others. Having a closed throat chakra means that you are unable to voice your own ideas and are threatened by other people's opinions. You can also be confused, anxious and not know which path or direction to take.
