The Throat Chakra is your communication center and is your 5th chakra. Its Sanskrit name is Vishuddha Chakra meaning “the pure place.”

This chakra oversees your ability to make responsible decisions and speak up for yourself. It is also your spiritual voice.

Creative ideas manifest in your life, once they are expressed through speech. This chakra helps you convey the truth from your heart and ideas from your mind.

In Balance
With this chakra in balance your beliefs, creativity, and emotional needs are expressed clearly without fear of what others will think. You have an ability to listen and empathize with others, being able to communicate clearly results in self empowerment and self esteem.

You know that there are times when silence is beneficial and at the same time your motivational words can help empower others.

Out of Balance
This chakra being out of balance or blocked can inhibit your ability to communicate clearly. You may end up unknowingly speaking half-truths.

You will suffer in silence rather than express your true feelings. This being said it most certainly disrupts your ability to communicate and stand up for yourself. On the other hand an out of balance Throat Chakra can also result in becoming a gossip and developing negative habits.

The Ether (space) Element
Ether is associated with this chakra. It is the last of the physical elements. Ether (space) is matter in its most subtle state.

Meditating on this chakra will help you use your words in a more positive way and express your thoughts and feelings honestly. Meditating outside under a clear sky is best, but if not possible you can sit by a window.

Visualize yourself within the infinity of a clear blue sky.


    “My words are pure and honest.”

    “I use my words wisely and express my feelings clearly.”

    “The sky is the limit for all my dreams and desires.”

    “Silence is golden I listen to other with an open mind and heart.”

    “I communicate clearly and empower other with my words.”

    “I am true to my words and my actions reflect that.”

Through this chakra you can greatly enhance your communication skills. Always speak from the heart and know when “silence is golden.”
