STONES AND THE CHAKRAS
Stones and the Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
Commonly called the throat chakra or laryngeal chakra, Vishuddha means ‘purification’ in Sanskrit. This purification requires creation and communication which are closely linked when the ego of the being is exposed without protection. The purification brought by this chakra allows the being to become aware of what they are and to communicate with all aspects of creation whether verbal, auditory, etc. The communication chakra allows information to be exchanged and to create all types of relationships.
It allows one to express the love of the heart chakra and to establish the link with one’s surroundings. If the fourth chakra is the chakra of balance, the fifth chakra is the chakra of communication and speech. The energy conveyed by it will emit a special resonance that will burst forth in its surroundings.

Fifth chakra: Communication, the power of language
The throat chakra is also associated with expression and listening. If it is balanced, communication can fully be established with the inner self. The being expresses themselves with sincerity about their feelings and their thoughts: remaining attentive to their intuition, their needs and what they want to strive towards. If this chakra is lived optimally, then the being will be in perfect harmony with the benefits of the universe, as well as the consciousness and benefits it embodies.
The path of experimentation will be much clearer and will illuminate all of one’s actions. The path of abundance will become clear. Each obstacle will be removed, allowing a new way of living for the being. Self-love becomes a necessity and allows one to let go enough to express and communicate the gratitude of one’s fate.
Throat Chakra Health Effects
When balanced the Throat Chakra (the fifth chakra) becomes the speaker of the inner self. It allows the being to fully express themselves in a written, artistic or verbal way (singing). Directly connected to the sense of hearing, the throat chakra allows us to listen attentively and respectfully both towards others, and ourselves. This listening is done in a natural way, as is the ease of communicating with others. If the throat chakra is balanced, blockages will be removed and the latter will have no obstacles, allowing the being to breathe fully. Their clairaudience then rises little by little and they become able to sense much more subtle messages from different planes, such as a breath or a tiny vibration. Vishuddha reveals our being in its sincere, authentic aspects, all in the joy of life of the fourth chakra and in total gratitude.
