I'm pretty sure this chakra was fucked up for me since birth. :) I had ear infections constantly when I was a kid until I got my adenoid, also known as a pharyngeal tonsil, operated when I was 4 I think.
I still have trouble communicating in a sense when I don't get to say what I want because often I get emotional and it prevents me from speaking without choking up so I just shut up. I'm much better with writing but I tend to censor myself a lot even if I write for myself because I've always had this fear of someone reading my thoughts.
That's why I like art journaling in this way where I cover up the writing with paint. This page holds a lot of my secrets. I must admit I did not meditate on this chakra so I just opted out for the symbol and words that represent it.
