Read..THE THROAT CHAKRA

ITS PLACE AND MEANING

From the Sanskrit, VISHUDDHA, the Throat chakra is associated with being at the center of your throat near your spine. Originally those who practiced tantric yoga and worked with the Throat chakra would have visualized a subtle, spinning, metaphysical smokey-purple, sixteen-leafed lotus flower with a downward pointing sky-blue triangle in the middle. Today, you will usually see the throat chakra represented as being completely sky-blue

When working with the Throat chakra, you should remember that the practice is primarily one of visualization and the purpose is to bring you closer to the divine: for the kundalini, the energy of creation, to rise up through all of the chakras until it meets the divine

To facilitate visualization and activation of the Throat chakra, it has been associated with colors, elements, organs, crystals, archangels, positive human values and foods. These connections should be recognized as channels that we can use to help us release the energy and to bring us closer to our connection with the divine

It is common to associate the color sky-blue and the element of space with the Throat chakra
