The Vishuddha Chakra or better known as the Throat Chakra is fifth of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought. Translated in Sanskrit as “especially pure”, meaning you and God are indivisible.
In the Anahata Chakra we recognized the God within, in the Vishuddha Chakra the God within recognizes us. The contemplation is abstract and the results are a matter of fact. A place where creativity and the self are expressed in truth. A place where our negative experiences and feelings are transformed into lessons learned and wisdom gained. A balanced Vishuddha Chakra is what one would call success in life, an inactive Chakra is what one would call failure. Guilt and Shame are the main contributors to the closing of this chakra. One must rise above the Ego’s limitations to reach the point of access to the Akashic Records. To receive the messages from the higher self one must put themselves in the position to listen. Aligning yourself with the 5th chakra is aligning you with the etheric realms. which is aligning you with the mind of God. To reach this alignment one must detach from their personal experiences. Thus far on this journey of the Chakras, you have been contemplating on the God in You, in the Vishuddha Chakra, the God in you contemplates you. Like sandpaper, the journey of the Chakras can be a little coarse at the beginning but as you ascend to the Throat Chakra the material becomes very fine. In the Vishuddha Chakra, your energy you put forth is more powerful than the energy already present in the universe. No one is against you and if there is, it is you. Translating the abstract and saying the right thing at the right time is a result of a balanced Throat Chakra. The abstract or ethereal realm is not unknown, it is simply beyond reason. When one ascends into the Vishuddha Chakra one is attuned to the higher realms of knowledge. Information goes from abstract to known in the Vishuddha Chakra. The element of the Vishuddha Chakra is Ether or the Quintessence, this controls the areas above terrestrial life, literally the air the Gods breathe. In this position, you think like a God. This energy has no particular form, so in this world, it shows up as abstract. The Vishuddha chakra is living with the knowledge of that fact. The Throat Chakra is your voice, your voice is the base of all your projections. What you say or don’t say is the difference between success and failure. A balanced Vishuddha Chakra gives us the ability to say the right thing at the right time and also how to listen attentively. Although it is located in the throat, this chakra controls one’s ability to hear. You may need to hear that crucial detail that puts you over the top if one is preoccupied with self-talk, one won’t be able to access its intuition. Intuition has a lot to do with the Vishuddha Chakra and spirituality in general, the ability to listen and hear the God within. You are always in control of your voice, meaning you are always connected to the source, the trouble is in realizing this connection. Opening and balancing the Vishuddha Chakra gives you power over your voice. In the Vishuddha Chakra, your psychic nature is evident, your reality is a mirror to your inner world. No longer can one say “He is a jerk”, one has to say “Why am I creating this jerk”, and make the necessary adjustment. Life is what you say it is. Listening to our inner voice without hesitation or distraction will lead us to our best results, this is abstract. You realize that intuition is life just as much as your habitual terrestrial nature. Our source is the inner Ethereal and auric energies. From this point we find our true purpose in life.
