Vishuddha is the first of the three spiritual chakras. To be open and aligned in the fifth chakra is to speak, listen, and express yourself from a higher form of communication that is kind and compassionate, understanding and authentic. You don’t just say what others want to hear out of fear of being judged — you confidently verbalize your needs, desires, and opinions in a way that’s truthful and aligned with your inner self.
Vishuddha is Sanskrit and translates to “pure” or “purification”. This chakra is associated with trust, wisdom, loyalty, faith and truth. The lesson related to Vishuddha is all about communication - about speaking your truth and hearing the truth from others.
