In the system of 7 chakras, the Throat Chakra (also known as Vishuddha in Sanskrit) is the 5th. It is found in the throat region and rules over the entirety of the components that comprise the mouth, neck, and throat. People who have a healthy Throat Chakra exude confidence, honesty, creativity, warmth, and intensity of their creative passions and truths.
The Center of Communication, Expression of the True Self and Creativity, Purification, Realizing One’s Purpose, and Connection to the Spiritual Realm.
The Throat Chakra is where we derive communication with others. It is where our True Self is realized and expressed to the world. Without this center of expression, the world would know nothing of our creative endeavors.
The Vishuddha gives us the confidence to express ourselves to the world. To stand up and say:
“This is who I am, whether you like it, or not.”
“I freely express my love and desires, and I am not afraid to show it or say it.”
“This is what I stand for.”
“That is what I want.”
“I am the creator of my world.”
“This is me.”
