Mixtures – Essential Oil for the Fifth Chakra
DESCRIPTION / INSTRUCTIONS
Vishuddha, or Vishuddhi, or Throat Chakra is the fifth primary Chakra according to the Hindu tradition.
This Chakra is located in the neck and the throat. Due to its association with hearing, it is related to the ears, and due to its association with speaking, it is associated with the mouth. Vishuddha is often associated with the thyroid gland in the human endocrine system. This gland is in the neck, and produces hormones essential for growth and maturation.
The Vishudda Chakra governs the throat, vocal cords, neck and cervical vertebrae, esophagus, thyroid, parathyroids, hypothalamus, mouth, teeth and ears.
Vishudda Chakra imbalances can manifest in thyroid problems, swollen glands, sore throats, speech problems, sinus or ear infections or pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and arms.
Excessive stress, namely fear and fear from speaking out, affect the Throat Chakra and thyroid problems may occur.
This Chakra can be cleaned/opened by meditation and also by practicing singing or playing instrumental music.
Singing is a great way of stimulating the Throat Chakra in a beneficial and harmless way, whereas rubbing or hitting the throat area is not and can be harmful.
The Vishuddha or Throat Chakra is associated with speech and communication. This includes the communication of our personal and spiritual truth. The Throat Chakra is where we open to higher wisdom, our higher selves and our souls. It is where we connect to guides and other energetic forces. It is the source of our personal and spiritual pride.
A clear, balanced and strong Chakra is needed to assert our aspirations and manifest our intentions. People with vital and balanced Throat Chakras communicate well and are able to articulate their aspirations and speak their truth. Depending on the situation or intention, many other essential oils may be appropriate or even more relevant than these the Throat Chakra essential oils.
