Within this blog post you will find a list of eight crystals you can use for helping you to communicate more effectively and speak your truth. Each of these is also associated with the Throat Chakra.

You've probably heard of chakras before, even if you aren't clear on what they are. Based on the Sanskrit word for "wheels," the seven chakras are spinning energy centers found throughout the body. Each one is associated with a different color and effect on your body.

The fifth chakra, also known as the throat chakra, is in the front of the neck, in the V of the collarbone. It rules speech, self-expression, communication, creativity, the arts, and speaking your own truth. If you've ever felt powerless or unable to speak your mind your throat chakra might be out of balance. Many people store anger in this chakra so many of the crystals on this list can be beneficial for letting go of that anger to lead you to positive change and transformation.

Color is a good place to start when looking for crystals to help you balance and open the chakras. The color often associated with this chakra light blue. Below you will find a list of eight options you might try.
