Tip of The Week: Thyroid Chakra™️ Essence for Balancing Throat and Heart

Mercury is still Retrograde and being in the shadow of eclipse season… its a great time to feature yet another fabulous Essence benefiting communication!

The Thyroid Chakra exists within the Throat and bridges the energy centers of the Heart, Anahata and Throat, Vishuddha, Chakras. Keeping it cleansed and balanced can help improve your energetic equilibrium and vitality, strengthen your willpower, enhance creative self expression, and in some cases help balance issues related to breath, emotional eating (ie issues of weight), and in general anything associated with stress!

Your self expression defines who you are and is essential to your greater health and wellbeing. This is true even when (and if) SILENCE is your means to communicate. That is to say, having a voice is NOT necessarily about “having a voice”. I’m reminded of this by the empowered communication I see from friends and clients who are deaf, yet many of them express themselves with far greater poise, intuition and strength than many, even those in power or with loud booming voices.

In a society that is so divided and where words can get you in trouble, it’s easy to learn to “hold your tongue”. While this may help keep the “greater peace”, if it causes you inner turmoil, it can accumulate over time and lead to energetic blockages, including those associated with physical imbalance, mental and/or creative blocks, loss of willpower, emotional blocks, or issues with breath, weight, and so much more.

For helping balance and align the thyroid chakra regarding issues of energetic stress, we recommend you spray Shanti Kai™️ Thyroid Chakra™️ Essence directly on the throat, front and back, over chest area, especially heart, upper heart, mid back, and other key sensitive areas (ie forehead/3rd eye, temples, spine) 2x a day, or as needed or desired.

You may also try pairing it with any of our Essences for Communication highlighted in our latest blog, to promote the clearing and healing of issues concerning self expression.

In addition to Thyroid Chakra™ Essence, we are also recommending the following.

  • Throat Chakra or Vishuddha™ Blend Essence: It doesn’t matter who you are, if you can’t express yourself, to many, you simply don’t exist. While we know that’s not true, the world around you can be hard enough without blocks to expression moving in and causing you to fumble in your ability to express yourself. Vishuddha™ Essence helps clear blocks to the Throat Chakra, so that you can speak your truth and express yourself optimally.
  • Lantana Master Essence is for encouraging harmony and cooperation, and helping you assimilate and integrate multiple energies at once. It also helps you manage overwhelm and can improve group dynamics.
  • Kalanchoe Master Essence can help you integrate various streams of information, helping you process subconscious blocks that affect your ability to communicate and integrate harmoniously within yourself and with others. It may help with sleep issues, dream work and interpretation. If you are dealing with communication barriers, Kalanchoe can help bring out the underlying blocks so that you can move toward resolution.
  • Pentas Master Essence promotes the clearing of blockages between your throat and heart chakras, opening communication lines for truth to come out. It helps you to let go of past pain and the need to protect yourself, and it helps you with public speaking, or with teaching, and encourages group harmony and cooperation.
  • Smithsonite Master Essence helps bring harmony to relationships. It can promote balance and reconciliation, promote problem solving ability, and enhance your leadership skills. It has been know for energetically helping in fostering clear self-expression, left-right brain balance, and overcoming gender, language and other communication barriers.
  • Dahlia Master™ Flower Essence may help strengthen your ability to handle intense emotional stress. It may help to increase faith and confidence, thereby allowing you to step into a space of optimism despite difficult circumstances (i.e. stressful jobs, relationships, family, etc). It can also help those who tend to be overly logical to tap into and harmonize with their emotions, bringing about balance. Similar to how it can help you empathically harmonize in your romantic partnerships, enabling you to better feel and support each other, it can also help you to apply the same sensors to your work/home life, and other relationships.
  • Hemimorphite Master™️ Essence may be good if you’re holding onto anger or resentment, helping you to forgive and move on. It increases empathy, making it very healing and helpful for harmonizing relationships, bringing mental and emotional transformation to both (or all) parties. Taken regularly, it may also help balance the throat and third eye chakras, benefitting communication and intuition.

MercurEase™, Mars™, and Imagine™ for the Friday the 13th Moon in Scorpio


This Friday the 13th emotions may reach a peak with the moon in the emotionally intense sign of Scorpio, and frustrations from changes in travel plans, canceled meetings due to the coronavirus, which coincidentally started while Mercury was retrograde and continues as we move through the retrograde shadow period. The next day, however, on March 14th, a Mars-Neptune sextile occurs bringing a powerful opportunity to manifest your dreams by way of the fastest destination.

Mars is all about getting it done, and Neptune represents your dreams and wishes. When these two form a sextile an almost magical opportunity is created to bring these two seemingly opposing planets into a harmonious spirit and a rare opportunity to align with and manifest your goals. This may be most welcome after the Mercury retrograde period when some ventures may have experienced some slow downs.

We’re recommending Shanti Kai™ Essences MercurEase™, Mars™, and Imagine™ to help you through the Friday-the-13th moon in Scorpio and to help you harness the helpful manifestation energies of the Mars-Neptune Sextile!

MercurEase™, our go-to essence for Mercury Retrograde issues, is designed to promote intelligent thinking, problem solving, and smooth communication to help with changes in plans that Mercury retrograde energy can create.

Our Mars™ blend may help to balance some of the emotional intensity of the Scorpio moon, as Mars is one of the planets that rules Scorpio, and may also help you to capitalize on the Mars-Neptune sextile, helping you to tap into the raw creative energy needed to take action.

Finally, our Imagine™ Essence helps you to tap into the creative power of your imagination so that you can envision exactly what it is that you want to accomplish, and use your vision to fuel your actions.
