The Throat Chakra Too
The Throat Chakra is the center related to communication through sound, vibration, self-expression, and creativity.
It is the realm of consciousness that controls, creates, transmits, and receives communication, both within ourselves and between each other. It is the center of dynamic creativity, of synthesizing old ideas into something new. Its attributes include listening, speaking, writing, chanting, telepathy, and any of the arts – especially those related to sound and language.
COMMUNICATION IS THE PROCESS OF TRANSMITTING AND RECEIVING INFORMATION
Communication can be seen as a symbolic system that mediates between the abstract and the manifested idea. It formulates our thoughts into controlled physical vibrations, which in turn can create manifestations on the physical plane. With words, consciousness has a tool through which it can order or organize the universe around it, including itself!
-From ‘Wheels of Life,’ by Anodea Judith, Ph.D
Vishuddha is associated with the faculty of higher discrimination, between choosing what is right and wrong, and it is associated with creativity and self-expression. It is known as the ‘poison and nectar’ centre, closely related to the Bindu chakra, and the secret of immortality is said to reside there. When Vishuddha is closed, we undergo decay and death. When it is open, negative experience is transformed into wisdom and learning.
