The throat chakra, Vishuddha meaning “Purification” or “Pure” in Sanskrit, is the first energetic centre that differentiates humans from all other life forms. Our capacity to communicate gives us the power to express ourselves on every level of experience. To honour this gift, we need to commit to expressing our truth and singing the song of our individuality clearly and with integrity. When we are able to express our truth with integrity we are able to truly serve our spirit.
When we mean what we say and stand by our word, we influence the way in which people perceive us. They pay attention to what we say and recognise who we are. As we deepen our commitment to expressing the truth, the throat chakra expands and becomes an invincible ally of the spirt, channelling energy for our physical vitality and spiritual development. When we express our truth we become stronger in ourselves and more resilient in our thinking. This in turn provides us with all the energy needed to accomplish our purpose in life.
The power of manifestation is also an aspect of the throat chakra. Knowing what we want and then asking for it is the key to understanding the power of manifestation.
The throat chakra itself can be a tool for profound healing, through speaking our truth, speaking up for ourselves or simply healing with sound and frequency created by our vocal chords. The throat chakra also governs our sense of authority and autonomy.
A healthy throat chakra will relish in telling and hearing the truth, no matter how difficult it may seem on the surface. It asks us for integrity and honesty in our actions and communication. It will not sit still for a racist or sexist joke, it will speak out. Learning to say no and set healthy boundaries is one major lesson in this aspect of the self.
This charka becomes functional when we commit to expressing our truth to the best of our ability. Attitudes about supressing “negative” feelings, being polite, and not rocking the boat block this chakra and weaken our life force.
An essential attitude is that what we say matters and this belief in itself heals this chakra. If we grew up in a family that put down what we said, then speaking up for ourselves will be of particular importance to us. Communicating from the depth of our integrity gives us credibility and constancy and defines us as mature adults who can be trusted and that we mean what we say. Most importantly, when we share our truth we expand the throat chakra and open our energy field.
