'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the throat chakra, Vishuddha.

Vishuddha is located in the throat, and is one of the three chakras of spirituality. It is responsible for our understanding and expression.

Its colour is sky blue, and bija mantra is Ham.

Imbalances in the throat chakra may manifest in:
Inability to communicate effectively; difficulty expressing your truth.
Being over-opinionated and/or verbally abusive.
Neck and/or shoulder pain.
Recurring sore throat and/or thyroid problems.


To balance the throat chakra, try:
Chanting, humming or singing to stimulate the throat.
Speak with compassion. Ask yourself if what you wish to say is true, necessary and kind.
Surrounding yourself with calming blue coloured objects, or sitting outside under a blue sky.
