Each chakra within your energy body is associated with its own colour and each colour holds an energy vibration.
Everything in the universe is comprised of energy, including you! We are all made of energy, the universe is the one source of Divine energy which we are all part of, connected to and that which flows through us. The word ‘Chakra’ derives from the Sanskrit meaning ‘wheel’ and literally translated from Hindi tradition it means ‘wheel of spinning energy’. The 7 major chakras are energy centres that connect your spiritual body to your physical body and are like a whirling vortex of energy, they are your powerhouse of energy that governs your physical body.
THROAT or 5th Chakra
The Throat Chakra colour is blue and lives in your throat centre. Its energy radiates down to the heart centre and up towards the 3rd eye. The influencer of communication through self-expression, creativity and truth, this energy vortex when in balance is a powerhouse of transformation and purification when speaking with love and kindness. The Throat is an important pathway for the lower chakras to connect to the upper energy points to assist with energy movement throughout the body.
Each Chakra is associated with certain organs in the body and the Throat is associated with: Neck, shoulders, hands, thyroid, arms and parathyroid glands. Influences the sense of hearing.
Having the Throat chakra in balance enables you to speak with confidence and have a clear expression of self. Sitting between the heart and the head chakra points this energy centre is the connector between thought and emotion. It is the gateway for you to express in a proactive and compassionate way.

Other ways to restore balance in the Throat chakra
Truth! To bring balance to your Throat chakra can be as simple as learning to speak your truth. This doesn’t have to be out loud to people until you are ready to do so, but instead practice speaking your truth in private. Simply the act of speaking will raise your vibration. Always speak your truth with love. Do not speak in anger or retaliation as this is speaking in fear and lowers your vibration. Instead take advice from Buddha who said, before speaking ask yourself “Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?” … Think before you speak!
