The throat Chakra, also called the Vishuddha Chakra or 5th chakra, is a gateway between our inner and outer worlds. Located directly above our heart, it is the first of the spiritual Chakras on the "Chakra ladder."
The treasure held within the throat Chakra is the energy to seek truth beyond the limitations of time and space, beyond the limitations of cultural or familial conditioning.
THE GIFT OF THE FIFTH CHAKRA
Expressing your authentic self.
Speaking your truth.
Voicing your essence.
In Sanskrit, the throat chakra is also called the Vishudda Chakra. Vishudda means purifier. It is a gateway to the higher realms. The keywords associated with the throat chakra are creativity, self-expression, communication, and truth. It is linked to personal integrity and a sense of honor.
As the center for communication, it is important not only to express what we feel and speak honestly and truthfully, it is also important to deeply listen to the other.
Is it easy for you to share your truth?
Do you feel heard on a deeper level?
Are you full of doubts?
Are you plagued by negative thinking?
Are you able to be honest in what you say?
To Ask Yourself
Are you expressive and highly creative?
Are you able to listen to others truths to arrive at deeper insights?
Are you able to say no when you need to?
Are you able to speak up for what you believe in?
A person with an open throat Chakra is able to express and deeply listen, giving the other person that experience of being heard. One of the most profound human needs is the need to be heard. You can think about it like this,
In the world of real estate, it is all about location, location, location.
In the world of consciousness, it is all about vibration, vibration, vibration.
When you begin to activate the throat Chakra, you begin to change not only your own personal vibe, but also the entire vibe of a room. You can then extend this quality of authentic communication outwards into your community and the world.
When you begin to understand that you are a unique frequency and can fine tune that frequency through the use of deep listening, sound, and awareness, you have a powerful tool you can use for personal transformation.
