The 5th chakra, our throat chakra, is the spiritual and emotional center of speaking truthfully for ourselves and listening clearly to what others have to say.
Physically, I like to think of it as the hub of all things ear, nose, throat and thyroid.
When you’ve long struggled with a blockage and are now working through a process of healing, clearing, and opening of the throat chakra, you may notice changes - and not all of them are pleasant.
The road to healing can be a bumpy one. When a road is excavated in preparation for repaving, there is a period of time in which the uneven, bumpy, and rocky undersurface exists in the interim between digging it up and paving a new surface. Soon, however, after the repaving process, you can look forward to clear and smoother lines of communication, both physically and spiritually.
Before the newly healed roadway can be paved, all the old, bumpy concrete must be removed. This is the essence of the healing process - it can be messy, dusty, and bumpy.

15 Signs of Throat Chakra Opening and Healing
Sore or swollen throat
Coughing, especially productive coughs
Sneezing, stuffy nose, or colds
Sinus headaches and infections
Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
Influx of creative ideas and thoughts
Suddenly feeling more talkative, even with strangers
More able to hear what others are really saying between their words
Interest in new music and new genres of music
More extreme reactions to things you say - either adverse or supportive
People take notice and seem surprised or offended by the things you say now
An increase in arguments and disagreements in your relationships
Fluctuations in thyroid functioning, as indicated by symptoms and medication adjustments
Excess mucous production
Losing your voice
Each sign is can be an indicator of healing. In many cases, the more signs you notice, the deeper the healing and greater the opening. However, if you don’t have any of these symptoms, this does not mean you haven’t healed. It may mean that you are healing on a different timescale in a different way that may not manifest physically or emotionally for you.
Rest assured, healing periods tend to be temporary and last only a short while before you begin to experience the benefits of throat chakra healing - clearer communication pathways for you to speak your truth and for you to hear the truth of others.
Happy Throat Chakra Healing!
