Visuddha Chakra and its Crystals
Kundalini has now crossed the bridge, through the gateway to the spirit. Visuddha, the Throat Chakra is where we begin to leave the physical attachments we have, behind us. This wonderful serpent of creation is on her way to meet her partner Shiva, Kundalini is also known as Shakti the Goddess of creation, whereas Shiva is known as the god of destruction, together they dance the eternal dance of life while keeping the universe in balance.
This Chakra represents our communication and creativity centres, sound, vibration and telepathy are also linked to the throat chakra. Physically, Visuddha is related to our neck, shoulders, arms and hands. When we feel that our voice is not being heard, do we not say “our hands are tied”? While at work, and we are not being honoured for our creativity, do we not feel the tension and stiffness in our shoulders? Two glands are connected to this chakra, the Thyroid and Parathyroid. The Thyroid promotes body/brain growth and cell repair while the Parathyroid assists with calcium and phosphate metabolism.
The element sound is related with the throat chakra. Sound travels at 1159 km per hour and is received through the eardrum. Both the ear and the throat are linked and acting as one entity, our speaking skills are only as good as our listening and vice versa. Our actual audible capabilities range somewhere between 40Hz – 18kHz and comes with limitations from hearing loss or our ego sometimes gets in the way and may have already passed judgement before we have even heard the words spoken.
I also believe that particular crystals and minerals can help with our speaking and listening skills and bring balance to our throat chakra. The stones that I would suggest are: Kyanite, Blue Lace Agate and Turquoise. Blue Lace Agate is my “go to” stone when I can’t afford the other two and I want to balance my throat chakra or preparing to give a speech to a large audience.
You can learn much more in my workshops that I conduct regularly at different yoga studios, or from my home.
