Throat Chakra | Vishuddha
The Throat Chakra is the fifth Chakra. Located at the center of the neck at the level of the throat, it is the passage of the energy between the lower parts of the body and the head. The function of the Throat Chakra is driven by the principle of expression and communication. The most common Sanskrit name for the Throat Chakra is “Vishudda”, which means “pure” or “purification”. The element corresponding to the fifth Chakra is ether or space, and the sense is hearing. When balanced you are able to speak, listen, and express yourself from a higher form of communication. A blocked Throat Chakra can contribute to feelings of insecurity, timidity, and introversion.
