Throat Chakra Knowledge
Throat Chakra - Vishuddha
Color: Bright Blue
Verb: I speak
Vishuddha translates to very pure. This chakra is the pure essence of truth. Being in the throat, this chakra is the expression of communication between oneself and others, and the communication between one’s mind, and body as it is the direct link between the two. This is one of the most important chakras because we can use it to release energy that no longer serves us from our entire body.
Calm like a blue sky, flowing like a waterfall, yet stern as a wave. The throat chakra must be used to express emotions, feelings, and thoughts in order to unlock the other chakras in the body. A kind, steady, and loving truth will help bring the body into a complete balance. For example, if there is a heartache that we hold onto we will feel stagnation in the heart chakra. But if we speak about it and express it, we can release energy and open the heart through the throat.
The throat represents the hermetic principle of vibration. We are what we speak. Literally, the words that come out of our mouths carry various vibrations that affect our physical body. Everything is in motion, vibrating all the time at different speeds creating various frequencies. When we speak in love we project a higher frequency of love and attract love. When we speak in hate we project a low frequency of hate and attract hate. That is what it means for our words to be spells, it is beyond just spelling. By speaking at a higher vibration, at vibrations of love, joy, and compassion then we are allowing for a healthy flow of energy out of us that in turn will attract healthy vibrations back. Speech is key in the law of attraction, and manifestation.
When in balance we use this chakra as our expression of love and compassion. We use it not only to release but also to give guidance from a place of loving and understanding, with an innate kindness. Not speaking the truth can block this chakra, usually a person is shy, introverted, and avoids confrontation when this chakra is blocked. When overstimulated a person will tend to speak about themselves, cut other people off, and be the dominant know it all in the conversation.
The throat chakra affects the throat, thyroid, shoulders, neck, mouth, jaw, teeth, and tongue. It is associated with the respiratory system, the thyroid, and parathyroid glands. The respiratory system is how we breathe which directly affects our lung health. The thyroid gland controls our body's metabolic rate by producing hormones that control how the body utilizes its energy. Without it there is an imbalance in dispersion of energy which leads to metabolic issues. The parathyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the amount of calcium there is in the blood. Making it vital for bone health, and the decalcification of our pineal gland. Physical manifestations of stagnation in the throat are a sore throat, bronchitis, cavity, mouth ulcer, asthma, neck pains, lung disorders, hypoactive thyroid, and bad vocal cords health. Negative energy swallowed from the throat chakra can cause digestive issues within the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The most effective way to heal our throat chakra is by simply speaking the truth, to others and to ourselves. To exercise the throat chakra you can journal, sing to yourself, chant, or hum. Humming OM’s is a powerful throat healer because it vibrates at such a high frequency that it begins to massage the internal nervous system and produce a powerful release of energy while raising the vibration of the entire body. Breath-work is also extremely powerful in stimulating the throat and lungs and to move stagnant energy out of the body.
