Chakra #5 – “The Communicator”

I promise I will finish what I started approximately two weeks ago – a chakra series blog explaining the important functions of each chakra.

I’ve had to abruptly change course since I was in California and Idaho with little to no connection to the internet, not to mention my computer crashed.  (This comment kind of sounds like a blocked fifth chakra – ouch!)

I will now continue this blog about the seven chakras and share my insight into Chakra #5, The Communicator.

I will continue to provide to you each chakra’s function and its connection to our physical and emotional health, as well as, tips to teach you how to work with each chakra if you sign up for this blog.

Here is what has been published so far:

June 7, 2011, I covered Chakra #1 – The Grounder
June 8, 2011, was about Chakra #2 – The Creator
June 9, 2011, insight into Chakra #3 – The Powerball
June 16, 2011, was about Chakra #4 – The Heartfelt

I will again cite my references for this chakra series blog:

Deborah King, Truth Heals – without the knowledge obtained from her book, Truth Heals, I wouldn’t have been able to recognize my own issues and begin my self-transforming journey.

Swami Saradananda – without being presented with her book, Chakra Meditation, I would have stayed “stuck” in my own turmoil.

It will be important at this point to subscribe to this blog in order to get an action plan for balancing these chakras.  You can also send an email to and title the subject line:  CAP – Chakra Action Plan.  This action plan will be provided no later than two weeks after the final chakra blog is published.

Many of you may know that each chakra takes in and processes energy as it distributes this energy back out through our body or psyche.  These chakras are the reason that our emotions are thought to affect certain parts of our physical body, which in turn, can make us ill mentally, physically and spiritually.

Understanding these chakras and the many ways to work with each one, helps us remove negative energy blocks that can open up and enhance our physical and emotional well-being.

Today is about Chakra #5 – The Communicator.

The throat chakra is located in the throat area near the Adam’s Apple

Aka (also known as):
Vishuddha Chakra

Silence, hearing and listening is its main function.  It is also associated with artistic expression and giving voice to our desires.

Chakra Physical Disorders:
When the throat chakra is not balanced, the physical body risk areas are neck problems, tonsillitis, thyroid issues, swollen throat glands, sinus problems; mouth, tongue, throat ears, eyes and hand issues; and eating disorders.

Emotional & Physical Issues:
A blocked throat chakra distorts our ability to communicate and we only speak half-truths or we tell lies.  People with an unbalanced throat chakra typically put on a brave face hiding their inner turmoil which hinders their ability to stand up for what they believe.  It also interferes with their ability to make dreams come true.

Negative Traits:
Gossiping, smoking, overeating, too serious, talking too much; blame others for their bad experiences.

Natural Event or Common Characteristics:
A number of common or natural events or characteristics can occur that can knock this chakra off-balance.  Some of those events or characteristics are:

  1. Stress
  2. Manipulator
  3. Control freak
  4. Not empathetic
  5. Inability to listen

This chakra is the bridge between heart and mind.  If this chakra is blocked, it is unable to travel down to the other chakras which can block the path to our hopes and dreams.

Action Plan:
Sign up for this blog and I will send you a personal action plan to balance this important chakra.

Until tomorrow, come right back here where we’ll take a look at Chakra #6, the third eye, or what I coin, “The Wise One”.
