The Fifth Chakra, the Throat Chakra, is the center of communication and the power of purification. Known as Vishuddha in Sanskrit, the throat chakra’s unique ability to communicate information from the other chakras makes it the epicenter for authentic self expression. At the throat center, the thoughts and emotions of the heart convert into audible sound, sending out powerful vibrations to the universe. When the throat chakra is open and activated, we receive direct messages from the highest levels of consciousness which leads us to find our authentic voice. The color of the Throat Chakra is blue – a reminder that speaking our truth is essential for our lives to flow towards our divine destinies.
Turquoise is a stone for finding wholeness and truth, and communicating and manifesting those qualities. It stimulates and harmonizes the Throat Chakra, making it easier to articulate and bring forth one's deepest wisdom. Turquoise empowers those who are shy about sharing their understanding and aids in the knowledge that in speaking from the wholeness of our being, we each have something important to contribute to the collective.
