Fifth Dimensional Chakra: (Throat):
It is associated with the colour Blue.
The throat chakra holds the energy of communication. It is located in the area between the shoulders and the neck and is developed during the ages of 7-12 years. Not only is the throat chakra used for communication between people but it is also how God and our higher self speaks through us from the higher realms. If this chakra is not functioning properly, not only will our communication with others be difficult but we will also not be receiving clear guidance from our divine self, oftentimes leading us down a difficult path and a hard lesson to learn from. Although there are no mistakes, or wrong paths there are choices that we make that sometimes are not in the highest good for all involved. There are consequences for every choice and there are always lessons to be learned from our lower self choices that are not guided by our higher selves. When our throat chakra is fully opened we will be guided by truth from the higher realms and from our divine essence. We will no longer need to be guided by other people, belief systems, laws or anything that limits us from living our highest potential because we will be fully expressing our divinity in all things we do.
Unfortunately, many of our throat chakras are closed because we live in fear of speaking our truth. We don’t want to voice our feelings and we certainly don’t want to verbalize any kind of information that may provide a different perspective or perhaps go against the already ingrained belief systems of the mass consciousness. In previous lifetimes many of us have been burnt, beaten, imprisoned, rejected, ridiculed and even crucified for speaking our truth and trying to empower our brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, these deeply seated fears of speaking up need to be overcome and we need to be willing to express our divinity and truth without preaching. When we truly remember who we are, our self-image will be reestablished and we will be equipped with the courage and discernment to know how to properly express the energies of our voice with words of love and compassion.

Communication is the connecting principle that makes life possible. Without communication, nothing can survive. Everything in the Universe is in a constant state of communication. When communication is blocked or ceases to exist, a healthy relationship is no longer sustained. In order to survive, the human body must be in a constant state of communication with itself. The heart communicates with the blood, hormones communicate with the cells and brain waves communicate with our muscles and tissues. Communication is the essence of life! Without communication, there is no relationship!
Once the lower chakras are cleared and divine energy activates the heart, we begin to transcend our lower, darker chakras and move into the higher, lighter chakras connecting us with our divinity and our God Self. We begin to move out of limitation, boundaries and separation into an understanding of deep interconnectedness with God and all living things. When the throat chakra is fully opened, balanced and functioning properly it becomes a gateway to the higher planes of the spiritual realms. Clear communication between God, your higher self, angels and spirit guides becomes possible. It is here where we begin to transcend the confinements of the physical body and are able to tap into the multidimensional depths of our mind and Spirit. We become conscious creators of our life experience and begin to “hear” the thoughts running through our mind that create our reality. Instead of being a victim of our thoughts, we step into an empowered position where we are able to quickly clear negative thinking by replacing it with positive affirmations and intentions. Once the throat chakra is opened, our vibration is raised and we begin to understand that everything is energy including our thoughts and words. Vibrationally, we will begin to resonate with like-minded people, events, activities and beliefs that reflect the vibrational frequency of an open throat chakra.
We will desire and attract positive, truthful, authentic, grounded, open, honest communication in all areas of our life. Once the energies of the throat chakra are cleared, space will be created for divine energy to flow up from the throat chakra into the sixth chakra the Brow or Spiritual Eye Chakra.
