I'm Louise Barnett, the editor at, where my days are filled with the exploration of myriad subjects that pique my curiosity and feed my ever-growing appetite for knowledge. From the latest in laser cutting technology to the timeless wisdom of yoga and meditation, my work allows me to dive deep into topics that not only fascinate me but also have the potential to improve our daily lives. I have a particular interest in how ancient practices meet modern life, leading me to explore everything from Ayurveda to minimalism and beyond. My journey has taught me the importance of balance—between innovation and tradition, action and reflection, and between the digital and the natural world. Each article I publish is a step towards understanding this balance better, hoping to inspire others along the way.

The throat chakra is one of the seven chakras in the human body. It is responsible for communication and self-expression. In yoga, it is called Vishuddha. It is located in the deep part of the larynx and is responsible for the secretion of thyroid hormones. It frees us from negative emotions and enables us to communicate better.

What is the throat chakra?

The throat chakra, also known as Vishuddha, is the fifth of the seven chakras, or energy centers in our body. We can locate it in the neck area, at the top of the chest. Its color is turquoise or aquamarine blue. It is represented as a 16-petal lotus flower.

The throat chakra is the place where we can express ourselves on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Its function is to connect our inner self with our environment. It is associated with us being able to express our thoughts, feelings and beliefs.

When our throat chakra is open and in flow, we can fully express ourselves and listen to our inner voice. This is very important for maintaining mental and emotional health. However, if it is blocked, it can cause difficulties in self-expression, which in turn can lead to stress and depression.

Meditation, affirmations, yoga, essential oils, chanting and other practices can be used to cleanse and harmonize the throat chakra. Through these practices, we can remove blockages and unblock the flow of energy in this chakra.

Gemstones, such as lapis orquartz, can help us harmonize the throat chakra. Lapis is considered a stone of sincerity, responsible for releasing blockages and unblocking the flow of energy in this chakra. Quartz stone is used to heal disharmony in this chakra.

In general, opening and clearing our throat chakra will help us express ourselves and make the most of our communication skills. We will be better able to listen to our inner voice and many benefits will be evident in our lives.

Healing the throat chakra in our body

The throat chakra is a particularly important chakra in our body, from which life energy and expression flow. Its color is blue and its smell is eucalyptus. Its cleansing requires us to answer the question: what do we want?

Blockage of the throat chakra causes us to lose our freedom, our sense of tact and the difficulty of showing our true face, to lose the ability to express what we really want to hear, to become increasingly brittle and overly factual, rationalistic or obsessively attached to what can be measured and proven. To cleanse the throat chakra, we need to open the mouth and move the lower jaw freely.We can do this by adjusting the top of the head and by breathing and changing too shallow to fuller.

An important step in clearing the throat chakra is to appreciate our own vision of the world. We can do this through visualization, artistic activities such as playing an instrument, writing, painting or drawing. Any activity that allows us to express ourselves and our truth can help us clear our throat chakra and enjoy the freedom to express what we feel.
