The Silence Series: Chakra Colors For Meditaiton – Vishuddha (Pale Blue)

Colors that bond us with our imagination and All That Is….

I believe that this chakra truly applies to all of us, but especially to the heart of the artist, writer, poet and all individuals who love to create. It is the motivating energy source for self-expression. We as artists and writers live our lives searching for our voice; manipulating images, dancing through forms, designing structures, solving equations and imploring words, searching for the right combination to get our ideas across. And in the process we discover new things about ourselves. We learn to  share with confidence. This is the power of the 5th chakra.

The Sanskrit word for the 5th chakra is Vishuddha which is translated as meaning pure. When this chakra is in balance you feel confident in speaking your truth. Some of the keywords associated with Vishuddha are creative expression, knowledge, abundance and flowing manifestation. It is governed by the thyroid, metabolism and the immune system. The location of this chakra is the area surrounding the throat. The sense is hearing and the sound associated with it is HAM.

Slowly bring your attention to the throat area and silently repeat the mantra …  HAM … HAM … HAM…

The 5th chakra Vishuddha

Peace be with you on your journey inward….

Namaste
