The fifth chakra is referred to as the Throat or the Vishuddha chakra in sanskrit. It is located in the V of the collarbone at the lower neck and is the centre of communication, sound, and expression of creativity via thought , speech, and writing. The possibility for change, transformation and healing are located here.
The throat is where anger is stored and finally let go of. when this chakra is out of balance you may want to hold back, feel timid, be quiet, feel weak, or can1t express your thoughts. Physical illnesses or ailments include, hyperthyroid, skin irritations, ear infections, sore throat, Inflammations, and back pain. When this chakra is balanced you may feel balanced, centred, musically or artistically inspired, and may be a good speaker. Body parts for the fifth chakra are throat, neck, teeth, ears, and thyroid gland.
This chakra is our will centre. The healthfulness of the fifth chakra is in relation to how honestly one expresses himself/herself. Lying violates the body and spirit . We speak our choices with our voices (throats). All choices we make in our lives have consequences on an energetic level. Even choosing not to make a choice such as in repressing our anger
(not speaking out) may manifest into laryngitis. We have all experienced that "lump in our throats" when we are at a crossroad of not knowing how to speak the right words in any given situation, perhaps even stuffing our own emotions. A challenge of the throat chakra is to express ourselves in the most truthful manner. Also to receive and assimilate information. Seek only the truth.
