Throat Chakra Power: Speak your Truth to the World!

Throat Chakra The throat chakra, our fifth chakra, is about communication - communication within us as well as with others. It is the desire and ability to express our Self in the world.

As we learn to share our voice, we are able to refine, clarify and purify our purpose in life.

We also learn the power of the word, as various scriptures in different religions recant a similar sentiment as "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." It is here that we begin to walk with impeccable integrity.

The fifth chakra, because of its relation to the voice is also deeply connected to the vibration of sound, and to heal at this level, we can to connect to uplifting music and other forms of vibrational stress relief.

The fifth chakra is ruled by the element of ether and is also known in Sanskrit as the Vishuddha Chakra, which means purification.

Physical Location of the Throat Chakra

The fifth chakra is physically found at, you guessed it, the throat! It includes the ear, nose, throat, neck, shoulders, thyroid and parathyroid glands.

The energy of the throat chakra vibrates at the light frequency of the color blue.

Unbalanced Throat Chakra Symptoms:

As children we sometimes receive the message "children should be seen and not heard.” This can be very detrimental to the growth and development of the throat chakra.

This leads to a number of core emotional, health and life survival issues:

  • Throat Cancer
  • Thyroid issues: metabolism challenges and weight issues
  • Parathyroid Challenges such as osteoporosis and osteopenia
  • Ear, Nose and Throat Issues (small children are notorious for having ear infections, runny noses and sore throats...perhaps it is because they are living in an adult world where they are not able to sufficiently express themselves)
  • Stiff neck and Shoulders
  • Speaking untruths, and creatively being deceitful without lying
  • Lack of Integrity
  • Becoming cunning
  • Frustration with inadequate communication
  • Shyness and lack of courage to speak your truth
  • Speaking too bluntly

Balanced Throat Chakra Manifestations:

When properly nurtured in our youth, and when surrounded by secure and balanced parents, we learn to creatively express our desires and communicate with the world in harmonious and empowering ways.

In a balanced state, the fifth chakra will manifest as follows:

  • Ability to speak and voice the Truth
  • Being a good listener, and likewise, others will listen to you as an authoritative voice and a respected leader
  • The subtle ability to hear beneath the words, all of what is being spoken and unspoken.
  • Being an inspirational communicator and speaker.
