How to unlock the fifth chakra, Vishuddha
In accordance with Hindu and Buddhist beliefs, the chakras are vast energy vessels which govern the psychological qualities of our body. The manifestation of the center of the throat is clearly felt every time the words or the expression of emotions get blocked in us, and something remains “across the throat”.
The throat chakra is a chakra of right communication, communication that has a purpose, the expression of who you are. Its dysfunction results for example in the difficulty of communicating (silence), or even in excess of verbiage, speaking to say nothing. When it’s healthy, words are right and creative, which means that they make something happen. So how to unlock the fifth chakra?
Why should we unlock the throat chakra?
- Sanskrit name: Vishuddha;
- Meaning: Purification;
- Location: Hollow throat;
- Color: Light blue.
The throat chakra is placed in the hollow of the throat. This chakra represents our capacity for expression and communication, but also our creativity.
It is a kind of “energetic mouth”, which allows us to reach higher levels of consciousness, to practice the divinatory arts or telepathy.
The throat chakra is related to our capacity for expression in the broad sense. That is to say, it allows us to speak or express ourselves, but it also allows us to express who we are deeply, our ego, our desires and our capacities, our will to surpass ourselves and to assume who we really are.
To work on the throat chakra is to reflect our inner and deep world in the outside world; it’s to accept to melt what is happening inside of us with the World and Creation to become one, and let the Universal Energy circulate freely.
How to unlock it
