THROAT CHAKRA THE PURE PLACE - The fifth chakra is located at the back of the throat, and as one might expect, is the chakra that provides us with energy to express our true voice. The throat chakra is known in Sanskrit as "Vishuddha", which means "a pure place", referencing the clear, concise and clean nature of true expression, untarnished by pressures or fear.
The Vishuddha is represented by an energy of crystal blue, like a cloudless sky or clear seascape, and this is the energy that allows us to express our inner feelings, our true thoughts. It is the energy of creation, of art, of music, of rhetoric and concise speech. Expression is extremely important.
Opening and nurturing the throat chakra is something in which we can take great joy. Deep breathing exercises and following your breath through the body are excellent and deeply relaxing ways of nurturing the pale blue energy of the throat, as is any form of mantra meditation. Singing, anywhere and anytime, is a lovely way to increase the energy of the fifth chakra.
