The throat chakra is located at the neck above the collarbone. The body parts associated with the throat chakra include the throat, neck, ears, jaw, mouth, teeth, gums, tongue, and thyroid gland. Blue healing crystals, such as lapis lazuli, can help bring balance to the throat chakra. Labradorite, which reflects a wide spectrum of colors, is also thought to positively affect the throat chakra and other chakras, as well.
The throat chakra relates to the way we communicate and, on a deeper level, how we maintain authentic relationships. It is not just about how we express ourselves to others, but also how well we listen to what others have to say. The throat chakra governs sound, creative self-expression, the ability to speak our inner truth with honesty, processing information, and divine guidance.

Physical signs that there may be an imbalance of the throat chakra include addiction, mouth ulcers, scoliosis, swollen glands, thyroid dysfunctions, voice problems, and gum or tooth problems.
