Chakras 101: Alan Finger's Simple Technique to Clear Your Throat Chakra
Draw energy from your root and direct it to the vissudha, so you can communicate with yourself, others, and the universe with more clarity and truth.
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” —Oprah
Speaking up in any situation, whether you’re delivering a Ted Talk, standing up for yourself, or prepping for that long overdue discussion with your partner, can be a daunting task. Palms sweaty just thinking about it? Try this throat chakra-balancing practice from Alan Finger and Sarah Platt-Finger, co-founders of ISHTA Yoga.

After all, anyone can talk, but the key to making your voice heard is speaking from the soul.
