Throat Chakra

Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is the gatekeeper between the heart and third eye chakra. It holds both love and wisdom as well as stories from this lifetime and the past. Our words create energy in the form of frequency, intention and tone. It is important to use our words wisely for every word creates a vibration that ripples throughout the universe. The energy of our words resembles the primordial essence of creation.

The Sanskrit word Vishuddha, means “especially pure”, as a reminder to speak truth. Our throat chakra holdsour personal and collective stories within our conscious and unconscious mind. As the chakra of communication, we can choose the stories we wish to share and how we want to speak them.
