The Sanskrit name for the throat chakra is Víshuddha which means “especially pure” or “purification”.

Víshuddha is located in the throat area. It is associated with the ether/ space element and vibrates with a light blue color.

The throat chakra is the center of communication and self-expression (not limited to verbal expression per se, it can be also a clear thought, painting, dance, or piece of music).

The throat chakra oversees the ability to speak your truth.

When your throat chakra is balanced you are a great and confident communicator. You can express yourself in a way that people are eager to listen to you. You can communicate your thoughts, feelings, and ideas with honesty and assertiveness.

You are also able to hear other people’s truths without judgement. You are a good listener (without an overwhelming need to interrupt or impose your own truth or belief). You are open to constructive criticism.

When your throat chakra is blocked and out of balance you have trouble expressing what you want. You find it difficult to express your feelings and emotions. You can’t speak your truth or when you speak it, it hurts people. You are prone to gossip and judgement.

There are many methods to unblock your throat chakra, working with crystals being one of them. The six crystals below can be of a great assistance in the healing process of your Víshuddha.
