Throat Chakra Vishuddha, 5th Chakra: Expression, Motivation and Truth

Throat Chakra Vishuddha, the 5th Chakra

The Throat Chakra Vishuddha is the fifth chakra. It is found in the middle of the neck at the throat. It provides a passageway for energy moving between the lower parts of the body and the head. Vishuddha represents expression, such as creativity and communication.

You express yourself though your Throat chakra—your motivation in life, your truth, your creativity.

The planet associated with Vishuddha is Mercury, the planet of communication. Although the expressive creativity is down in the belly,  at the second chakra, Svadhisthana, that energy rises upwards. As it rises it is modified by the capabilities of the solar plexus and the sweetness of the heart. Then it comes into the throat. This is the area where expression expands.

If we put our attention on the throat chakra and let it expand in an outward direction, the experience is very sweet with a lot of joy and bliss. And when we draw it in again, we create a nice stable, steady, silence within—in that place where we find our energy in ourselves down to that silence which is divine being, infinity at both ends of the spectrum.

Definition is what the throat chakra is about. The energy coming into this area of the physiology is the energy of discrimination. There’s an intelligence that’s coming in that both creates and specify boundaries.

We use the energy of this chakra to experience the diversity of the creation. And we can improve our ability to accept, appreciate, value and adore all the differences, all the boundaries in the diversity of creation by stabilizing a higher level of intelligence in the throat chakra.

Once the attention is in the area of the throat, we can look and see what can be done for healing for this throat chakra, this fifth chakra.

On the flip side

A lot of people tend to hold guilt in this area, like swallow back guilt. Doubt, conflict and confusion can be held in this area associated with confidence, being able to feel confident in expressing oneself without producing effects which are undesirable. We need to clear attachments to any kind of specific response or reply to our actions or expressions.

How do we clear attachments? How can we heal? See how Dorothy describes Energy Work as a form of transformational healing.
