With the recent increased awareness of the many healing benefits of gemstones, mantras and malas, why not adorn yourself with jewelry that is both sacred and beautiful.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel and refers to a system of seven basic energy centers that carry energy, or prana, throughout the body. Open and balanced chakras lead to optimal health, vitality and consciousness.
The fifth chakra is located at the throat and therefore related to communication and creativity. The element is ether, as sound allows us to experience the world symbolically through vibration and reminds us to communicate mindfully and positively. This chakra is oriented to creative identity and self-expression and asks us to be responsible and purposeful with our thoughts and speech.
If out of balance, we may feel afraid to express ourselves, create blockages or be overly talkative and self-righteous. If functioning properly, communication and creativity come to life through self-expression, inner hearing and intuition.
This chakra is linked to the color blue and to the planet Mercury. It responds to multi-layered chanting, choirs and symphonies.
The possible physiological benefits for a balanced fifth chakra are a healthy thyroid, throat and esophagus; mouth, teeth and gums.
Gemstones: Blue lace agate is a beautiful stone with a soft gentle energy that helps us express ourselves in a calm peaceful manner. It helps ease internal pressure and built up energies.
Sodalite helps access intuitive knowledge and helps with self-awareness and understanding.
Moonstone connects our emotions and our self-expression for inspiring and moving work, art, music and our other creative endeavors.
Mantra: “I breathe in creativity and healthy communication. I joyously allow the full and free expression of my true nature to come forth as I embody the power of the spoken word.”
