This is part six of eight posts about your chakras. We started with your root chakra, have moved now to your throat chakra and are working our way up to your crown. The throat chakra, or visuddha, is the fifth chakra and it the first of the higher or spiritual chakras. This chakra is located in the region of the neck and shoulders. The gift of this chakra is accepting your originality, expressing your authentic voice and speaking your truth. The energy of this chakra allows you to seek knowledge that is true, beyond limitations of time and space, beyond cultural and family conditioning.
This is part five of eight posts about your chakras. We started with your root chakra, have moved now to your heart chakra and are working our way up to your crown. Your heart chakra, or anahata, is located at the center of your chest at heart level. It is the center of your deep bonds with other beings, your sense of caring and compassion, your feelings of self-love, altruism, generosity, kindness, and respect. The energy of anahata allows us to recognize that we are part of something larger, that we are interconnected within an intricate web of relationships extending through life and the universe.
