Welcome to the Blog series for Chakras!
In this series we go through the Chakras (The Energetic Wheels) from "Ground to Up"
Vishuddha - The Fifth Chakra
One of its mantras: I am that (So Hum / Ham Sa)
Throat chakra: Meaning Pure
Location: Throat and neck area
Element: Éter or space
Sense: Auditory / hearing
Situated between the heart and the mind Vishuddha Chakra is the centre of communication between our heart's truest desires and the ideas emerging from our mind.
Vishuddha is where we learn to listen (to ourselves and others), speak our Truth clearly and make ourselves heard. In that sense it is very much connected to the beauty found in silence, where many answers often await.
Like its element (éter) it touches and is part of everything and, as such, its energy can be found in every chakra below it. When open and balanced we feel in tune with and guided by our heart and express ourselves with ease and clarity. This is the place where all our impulses, dreams, creative ideas and projects come to realization through the power of word and action.
Physically it reigns over the organs which are used in communication and artistic and creative projects: mouth, tongue, throat, ears, eyes and hands
Yoga poses: Halasana (Plow pose), Salamba sarvangasana (shoulder stand), Matsyasana (Fish pose), Simhasana (Lion's breath)
Some Essential Oils to stimulate Vishuddha: bergamot, eucalyptus, tea tree, mint,camomile, sandalwood...
Akasha Mudra (Mudra of touching the void): unite the tip of each thumb (fire element) with the tip of each middle finger (éter)
It's Yoga "Living in A Question"
What are the vibrations of my thoughts / Inner dialogue? Is my communication towards myself (and others) kind and loving, daily?
Do I (hear) listen to myself truly? Do I (hear) listen to others truly before I response? Is it easy for me to communicate my wants & needs? Do I "swallow my words" often? How do I feel then? Am I willing to make a change that my intuition (heart) is gently guiding?

The Inner Teacher will always (and in all ways) speaks to us in kind and loving voice... it's Yoga!
