The power of words has a great effect on people and if negative can create imbalance. The throat chakra is developed in many people but that is not to say that it is balance. Speech is a powerful tool it can be used to persuade, to mislead, to emotionally wound, to corrupt, deceive, lie and cheat. You only have to look and listen to hear the misuse of speech. On the other hand speech can be used for the betterment of people, just by using kind words, giving praise, not using judgmental words or actions.
