Chakra five is located at your pharyngeal plexus and is your place of self expression. Its elemental correspondence is ether but here I will use sound because the vocal apparatus is in its pervue. The color is bright blue. The Sanskrit root word means to purify.

The job here is communication; both verbal and nonverbal. At this level you begin to exercise your creativity in your communication skills. This include effective listening. Effective listening is to consciously and with awareness, pay attention to what the other person is saying to you, to really hear them. You also realize that each person comes at life from their own personal experiences of life and that their experiences are not the same as yours.

This is where you realize that communication is actually an extension of consciousness. You use sound, rhythm and vibrations to form words. Communication is a connecting principal that makes life as you know it possible. Just as your body uses DNA and nerve impulses, and your brain uses chemicals and hormones to operate the microcosm of your body,  broadcast waves join the global community into a functioning unit of information. Correct and conscious communication, both within and without, is crucial to your well being and understanding of life.

When you are out of balance in your fifth chakra you will talk too much or too little, you will not listen to others, you seem arrogant and self righteous and you have no use for the opinions of  those around you.

Words are your most powerful tools. With the great power to use them comes the great responsibility of that use. If you give  out incorrect information, you can do damage. Do you remember the gossip game from when you were a child? Someone would whisper a statement to the person next to them and the participants would repeat what they thought they heard and the results were usually funny. Not so in life so keep this in mind and think before you speak.

When you are in balance here, you are considered thoughtful in your communications, you are able to express your needs and desires without being demeaning or whiny. You can express your truth without hurting others and without shame or fear. You know you are in balance when you can truly hear another person and express your truth without judgment or shame.

The goal of chakra five is to communicate ideas and abstract concepts in a way that is easily understood by others; to give out information that can manifest creations on a physical plane so to give order to your universe.

BLOCKED; by lies you tell yourself

UNBLOCKED; by being OK with yourself as you are, your ability to change what YOU feel you want to change and to genuinely love yourself.
