Chakra Earrings – Throat Chakra, Blue Enamel, 5th
The Hindu word for the fifth chakra is Vissudha. It is positioned in the neck, above the collarbone and beneath the jaw . Made of sterling silver and enamel and approximately 1/2″ diameter in size , these Jeffrey David earrings were inspired by a Hindu design that is useful for balancing the throat chakra. When in balance the throat chakra aids in healthy communication and self expression. One is able to speak the truth and listen to what others have to say. This chakra also represents the interplay of personal will and Divine Will, the balance of which gives us faith to allow changes to take place in our lives. The inability to speak up for oneself or to consider new and different ideas may keep one static and afraid to move forward. Resistance to change may create a tension that physically manifests in the form of TMJ related headaches, clenched jaw and grinding teeth.
Compulsive talking also indicates an inbalance of energy in the 5th chakra. One may be more susceptible to allergies, sinusitis, and problematic conditions of the thyroid, larynx and trachea. To help balance the throat chakra, give voice to your thoughts and needs. Some find it helpful to write in a journal that which is difficult to verbalize. Because listening is also an important function of Vissudha, paying attention to the sounds of nature will help to open and circulate the energy here. Make a conscious effort to hear the sound of birds chirping and the wind in the trees.
Another technique for balancing this chakra is to relax oneself and visualize the color blue while repeating the Hindu chant HAM. Hold your intention in your throat and allow the sound to vibrate there. This exercise energizes the 5th chakra. Wearing the sterling silver Jeffrey David earrings will give further benefit. Gemstones that resonate on a harmonious frequency with the throat chakra are blue tourmaline, azurite, labradorite, blue opal, and turquoise. The representative color blue is symbolic of the element ether.
