About Throat Chakra
The word “Chakra” means disk or wheel. In Meditation, Ayurveda and Yoga, Chakras refers to the wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven chakras starting from the base of the spine to crown of the head.
To open the chakra is a bit of a challenge but with awareness, it becomes easy. The mind, body and soul are connected; the awareness of an imbalance in one area will help to attain balance.
What is the Importance of Chakras in the Body?
These swirling wheels known as chakras correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of these seven chakras contains major organs, bundle of nerves as well as our spiritual, emotional and psychological states of being. If there is a blockage in these chakras, then energy cannot flow.

|5.||Vishuddha (Throat Chakra)||Base of the throat||Blue|

|7.||Sahasrara (crown of the head)||Top of the head||Violet|
Each chakra possesses its own color and vibrational frequency and considered as the catalysts of consciousness and human function.
