Today’s Empower Hour comes from the Mongkoltepmunee Temple:
The Vishuddha or Throat Chakra is the fifth wheel of energy and it’s the first of the three spiritual chakras.
The Throat Chakra is associated with ether, or a space-like quality that symbolizes an open voice from where authenticity and truthfulness can flow.
The fifth chakra represents your ability to speak your truth, express ideas clearly, and be in tune with both your inner and outer intentions. Because it’s the first of the spiritual chakras, the lower four chakras must also be in tune.
When this chakra is balanced, you speak, listen and express yourself through a higher form of communication and authenticity.
When out of alignment, you can experience the inability to speak your truth, to ask for what you need, want, or desire, and it can result in a sore throat, thyroid problems, and neck/shoulder pain.
Location: The throat
Crystal: blue lapis agate
Chakra Mantra: “I follow and speak my truth.”
