Are you at a loss for words, and unable to speak your Truth? Do you feel like you are you living a Lie?

The Throat Chakra (or the Vishuddha or Fifth Chakra) is the chakra of communication, self expression and judgment. It rules speaking your truth, poetry and the written word, will power and faith. An imbalance of the Vishuddha is expressed as a lack of authority, a need to criticize, poor self expression, habitual lying, learning disabilities, doubt, fear, uncertainty and indecisiveness. Information stored in the Throat Chakra includes self knowledge and truth, attitudes, and the physical senses of smell, taste, and hearing.

The Vishuddha colors are turquoise and various shades of light blue. The Fifth Chakra is connected to the Fifth layer of the aura, called the Etheric Template. This layer of the aura acts as a "template" of your physical body in the astral realms, such as, when an individual experiences astral projection, or an out of body experience, and it is as if they are in an invisible physical body, able to visit or view others, yet remain unseen.

A Solfeggio tone of 741 Hz has been known to clear and open the Vishuddha, and aid you in freely speaking your Truth. Tibetan Singing Bowls attuned to the frequencies of the Throat Chakra, and binaural beats progressing along Earth Resonant frequencies, will not only help balance and heal your Fifth Chakra, it can also balance your mind and spirit to the frequencies of Mother Earth.

Yoga Postures, such as "Matsyasana" or Fish pose, clear and open the Throat Chakra, allowing the Kundalini, or Chi energy, to flow freely, and help to keep you physically flexible and relaxed.

Crystals and gemstones such as turquoise, blue opal, fluorite, blue topaz and blue lace agate assist in Throat chakra balancing. A nice turquoise or fluorite necklace is not only a pretty and stylish accessory, it might be just the thing to open your channels of communication!

Essential oils and flower essences are also quite useful in chakra balancing. Lemongrass, sage, cosmos, blue chamomile, larch, geranium, trumpet vine, and hyssop are aligned energetically with the Vishuddha.

Foods to foster the Throat chakra are liquid, such as herbal teas,fruit juice, and pure, clean water. Tangy and tart fruits like lemon, lime, grapefruit, all citrus and kiwi, and tree grown fruits like apple, peaches, pear, plums and apricot feed the Vishuddha. Simple spice such as lemon grass and salt help express the Throat Chakra.
