Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)


Throat chakra (Vishuddha)

Residing at the base of the neck between the collarbones, the fifth chakra is the vehicle of communication. This is the chakra that inspires you to express your feelings, to create, to sing, to speak out. It also helps you develop and listen to your inner voice—and to listen to the voices of others. A finely tuned fifth chakra also allows you to appreciate the more subtle sound of silence. Turquoise balances this chakra and draws its positive energy. Meditate with a turquoise-bead mala (or just wear one) to acquire a clear voice.
