Visuddhi: 5th Chakra (Throat Chakra): is associated with sound, our creative identity, and orientation towards self-expression. We experience the world symbolically through vibration, such as language, speaking and listening. The color blue helps with this balance. This Chakra deals with taking in and releasing out.

If this center is balanced we are able to communicate openly, as well as express what we do or do not want, in a diplomatic manner. When this center is unbalanced, we tend to talk without stopping, speak without listening, dominate conversations or just the opposite, the inability to express ourselves. To help activate this Chakra, wear blue, introduce blue foods into your diet, or utilize more blue light into your surroundings. The symbol of this Chakra is the Star.

Life development: The Throat Chakra – represents the growth from age seven to twelve years of age. This is the time to develop self-expression. With the feeling of being supported, it gives us the security to voice our message and be at peace with ourselves. Disruptive, abrasive, and boisterous behavior tends to be the product of underdeveloped, lower Chakras and can improve by working on improving the centers below the Throat Chakra.
