Throat Chakra: I express my truth

Throat Chakra – Visuddha – Fifth Chakra

The throat chakra is the fifth chakra and it is the first of the higher or spiritual chakras on the chakra ladder. This chakra is located in the region of neck and shoulders and its color is blue.

The gift of this chakra is accepting your originality, expressing your authentic voice and speaking your truth with grace and creativity. As you practice personal expression, a knowing that there is only one you – a unique expansion of Divine Intelligence – happens.

A strong throat chakra is often times expressed through art, writing and music. A telling sign of the health or condition of a person’s throat chakra is demonstrated by their voice. Are they clear and resonate or hacking, coughing and congested? Is their throat area open, free of clothing or wrapped up tightly with turtlenecks and scarves?

When the 5th chakra is balanced and centered, we are able to speak with confidence and truth because we are grounded in a belief of Self. If our will chakra is open, then we no longer need to enforce our opinions on others. We can speak gently and lovingly, with compassion and truth of conviction, so that others will hear us from their hearts and not feel threatened by our beliefs.

With a balanced 5th chakra, we can communicate without fear of being judged by others and we also can speak without a voice of judgment. Judgments come from fear, so when we are bridging the heart and the mind in an unprejudiced, objective way, then, we no longer need to make ourselves feel superior by proving the others inferior.

We can all be equal and living our own truths. There is a Universal law that states that there is no one Truth – We all need to learn what are our own individual truths and then live by them, uninfluenced by others’ belief systems. When we are able to do that, we then can live from an open personal/divine will center of flowing energy.

The main challenge for the fifth chakra is self-doubt and poor communication skills. When you gain and verify self-validation through meditation and direct experience, then doubt is removed and you begin to communicate with confidence and clarity. Self expression and asking for what you want becomes easy.

The way of the throat chakra is the way of inspired creativity, seeking and sharing of the truth. The throat is associated with the ear chakra, enabling you to hear the truth as well as speak it. As a communication center, it not only allows you to express who you are and what you stand for, but also allows you to listen deeply to another.

A person with an open Visuddha Chakra is a good listener. She enables another person to have the experience of being heard – one of the most profound human needs.

Exercises to open and strengthen the Throat Chakra

  • Sing! Singing is an amazing throat chakra cleanser, so sing a song.
  • Drink water. Water is clarifying. Avoid foods that clog or create excess mucus.
  • Think blue. Imagine a beautiful blue light—blue is this chakra’s color—at the base of your throat. Inhale as you visualize blue—and health and cleansing—filling up these areas, exhale and feel the release of stress and tension.
  • Wear jewelry. Wearing a gorgeous pair of blue earrings or a necklace is a wonderful and easy way to begin to balance your throat chakra.
  • Get a neck and shoulder massage. I’m a big believer in the healing powers of a wonderful massage.
  • Speak the truth with love. Let this become your daily practice.

Foods for a healthy Throat Chakra

Liquids play a large role in healing the throat chakra because of their lubricating qualities; soups, warm teas, cool juices and of course water are all encouraged. Avoiding dairy is highly recommended as it can congest your throat and sinuses.

Heart Chakra: I love

Heart Chakra – Anahata – Fourth Chakra

The heart chakra – the wellspring of love, warmth, compassion, and joy is located in the center of the chest at the heart level.

Anahata moves love through your life. It is the seat of your soul.

It is the center of your deep bonds with other beings, your sense of caring and compassion, your feelings of self-love, altruism, generosity, kindness, and respect.

Anahata is an integrating and unifying chakra. It is your healing center. Most spiritual traditions recognize love as the ultimate healing force and the highest vibration existing in this dimension. The heart chakra is the bridge between the upper and lower chakras – the unifier of our humanity and our divinity.

The energy of the heart chakra allows us to recognize that we are part of something larger- that we are interconnected within an intricate web of relationships extending through life and the universe. In many circles, it is thought that the heart chakra is the central intelligence of the body, as opposed to the brain. It is where we first receive impulses, information and guidance.

Solar Plexus Chakra: I am

solar-plexusSolar Plexus – Manipura – Third Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra, located between the navel and solar plexus, is the core of your personality, identity and ego. It is the energy center of your willpower. While the Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the Solar Plexus chakra is all about the perception of who you are. It is the “I am” of chakras.

The gift of this chakra is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible, and reliable. The energy of this chakra allows you to transform inertia into action and movement. It allows you to meet challenges and move forward in your life.

The main challenge for the third chakra is to use personal power in a balanced manner. This means consciously harnessing the energy of the solar plexus chakra and using the energy in a proactive and fair manner, rather then reactive, self-centered or inactive.

People with excessive third chakra energy are reactive to life circumstances, have emotional outbursts, are arrogant and are often stressed out. They are typically poor listeners, fast talkers and always put their agenda or needs first. They also tend to take matters personally, as their egos are in overdrive. They confuse busyness with self-importance.

Sacral Chakra: The seat of pleasure and passion

sacral-chakra-affirmation

Sacral Chakra – Svadhisthana – 2nd Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is your passion and pleasure center and it is located in the pelvic area. While the Root Chakra is satisfied with survival, the Sacral Chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment.

The Sacral Chakra is the seat of emotion. The gift of this chakra is experiencing our lives through feelings and sensations. The second chakra is the center of feeling, emotion, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy, and connection.

The energy of this chakra allows you to let go, to move, and to feel change and transformation occurring within your body. It allows you to experience this moment as it is, in its own fullness.

The main challenge for the second chakra is the conditioning of our society. We live in a society where feelings are not valued, where passion, and emotional reactions are being frowned upon. We are being taught not to lose control. As a result, we get disconnected from our bodies, our feelings.

As if this was not enough, we also experience the wounds of our collective cultural struggles over many sexual issues of our society. On one hand sexuality is magnified and glorified, and on the other hand it is rejected. This results in either blocked or excessive second chakra issues, such as addiction or co-dependency.

Root Chakra: The foundation for physical life

root-chakraRoot Chakra – Muladhara – 1st Chakra – Base Chakra

The Root Chakra is the first chakra and is located at the base of the spine. It is the root of your being and establishes the deepest connections with your physical body, your environment and with the Earth.

Muladhara is the most instinctual of all chakras – it is your survival center. Your fight and flight response is initiated from this chakra. This is your primal, animal nature.

The energy of Muladhara allows us to harness courage, resourcefulness and the will to live during trying times. It connects us with spiritual energies of our ancestors, their challenges and their triumphs. Since the Base Chakra carries our ancestral memories, basically everyone experiences challenges or blockages within it.

War, famine, natural disasters, and any events that threaten our basic survival, are all recorded within energies of the first chakra. These memories are imprinted in the subtle body and are passed down from generation to generation creating unconscious generational patterns.
