“Speak your truth, but soothe your words with peace”

~ Neale Donald Walsch 

The Throat Chakra Influence

The chakra of communication, creativity and authenticity. Increase your ability to develop clear and loving communication. Awaken your life purpose and increase vitality through this chakra. The chakra of healing, expansion and bonding.

The fifth chakra is the throat chakra and is responsible for communication, creativity and authenticity. This means it can increase your ability to develop clear and loving communication, awaken your life purpose and increase manifestation. This is the chakra of healing and expansion.

The throat chakra is one of the higher centres and therefore helps us elevate our consciousness. Universal love for all of life is expressed by the vishuddha chakra. It is located near the vocal cords and is associated with speaking one’s truth. There are two glands housed in the throat chakra. The first is the thyroid gland which releases hormones that regulate our metabolism, body weight, body temperature, menstrual cycles and more. The second is the parathyroid gland which regulates calcium levels in the body.

According to BodyTalk, “Ether is the element associated with this chakra, which amalgamates the first four chakras to become sound.”

The throat chakra is one of the keys to manifesting because of its powerful influence on our thoughts and the words we speak. What we say and what we think hold an energy vibration that creates tangible form. The sanskrit meaning of vishuddha is purification which lends well to the concept of purifying our thoughts and words so they are purposeful and loving. The colour associated with this chakra is bright blue. On a physical level this chakra is associated with the throat, jaw, teeth, gums, sinuses, lymphatic system, ears, neck, low part of the brain stem, upper shoulders and menstrual cycle. Gifts of this chakra are beautiful sounds of music, poetry, sharing knowledge and clear communication.

Yoga Postures to open the Throat Chakra

We invite you to repeat your favourite throat chakra affirmation while holding the following yoga poses. Doing so will create a strong connection between your body and mind. Repeat the affirmations out loud or quietly to yourself while holding the postures.

Bow Pose: Start on your stomach. Begin the bow pose by lying on your stomach with your arms at your side and your palms facing up. Keep your knees hip-width apart.

Grab hold of your ankles. Slightly raise your upper body off the floor by lifting your head and pinching your shoulder blades together. Bend your knees and press your feet together, bringing your feet as close to your buttocks as possible. Use both hands to reach back and grab the outside of your ankles. Avoid grabbing the tops of your feet.

Lift your legs and thighs. After you’ve grabbed your ankles, lift your heels while also lifting your thighs away from the floor, which should raise your head and upper torso.

Hold the position. As you’re grabbing your ankles, push your tailbone into the floor, keep your back muscles relaxed, and hold the position for 15 to 30 seconds.

Plow Pose: Begin by lying flat on your back with your legs extended and your arms at your sides, palms down.

On an inhalation, use your abdominal muscles to lift your legs and hips up toward the ceiling. Bring your torso perpendicular to the floor. Straighten your legs and slowly lower your toes to the floor with your legs fully extended.

If your toes do not yet touch the floor, support your back with your hands. Lower your legs as far as possible, keeping your legs straight. Continue to keep your back supported if your feet do not touch the floor.

If your feet rest comfortably, extend your arms along the floor and interlace your fingers. Press your upper arms firmly into the floor, drawing down through the pinkie finger side of your hands.

Align your hips over your shoulders. Un-tuck your toes and press the tops of your feet into the floor.

After you have completed the poses, practice being still by going into quiet mind. This is a time to let your mind be open to transformation. Any time your mind starts to wander, just simply bring it back by saying one of the affirmations above again, then return your awareness to quiet mind. After a few minutes of quiet mind, you may slowly bring your attention back to your surroundings and prepare to move on to the next chapter.
