Visudha means to purify. In this center everything is being purified and refined. 16 nadis flow into this chakra.
This center is connected to a smaller psychic center (lalana center) where the poison that leaks out of the "bindu" area is collected.
The lucky ones that have awakened this energy center, always feel well. They are able to equally accept pleasant and
unpleasant things, because they are able to let them happen, unite the opposites, and have no prejudices. By
developing this chakra we are able to attain knowledge about the past, present, and future, and become free and non-perishable.
If the sixth chakra ajna is not awakened, the nectar from the lalana goes to the manipura chakra.
If manipura is equally not awakened, the nectar is burnt out. This is the reason why nowadays people have significantly shorter
life-spans as compared to biblical times.
Visuddha is the fifth energy center - chakra of the throat - situated in the base of the neck. It is a center of the
powers of Divine love. This is where the limitless love originates from. This is the place where the vision of all people as
brothers and sisters originates. From the perspective of Visuddha we can see all things as sacred . This is the plane where selfless souls, extraordinary
artists and mystical poets abide. Visuddha's meaning is purity, its color is smoky purple-blue, it has 16 petals,
its vehicle is peacock, its element is ether, organ of motion is mouth, the corresponding metal is mercury, its planet is Saturn,
its sense is hearing, and its formula is HAM.
In its negative aspect, here we can often find firmly anchored qualities of envy and desire for personal power.
Visuddha's positive activity is in its ability to create perfection by doing God's Will. Visuddha corresponds to
the First Light Ray of Faith and Protection.
Visuddha is connected to the throat, vocal cord, ears and hearing. Visuddha is a center of vibration
and mantra meditation. It is linked to a dormant center in the right brain hemisphere. By stimulating this center we
become purified, wise, and longevous. Had all people on Earth awaken their Visuddha chakras, no longer there would be
wars, since nobody would have the desire of possessing somebody else's property, in agreement the 10th God's Commandment.
The nectar that originates in bindu is neutral, neither poison nor elixir. If Visuddha chakra is awaken the
potential nectar-poison transmutes into elixir of youth. Visuddha controls the metabolic processes, communication, and
mental creativity. If balanced, we can communicate easily and effectively with others, either in written or spoken form.
This includes the power of constructive expression of all emotions. If blocked, our communication is slow, difficult, or
impossible, and people with such problems are prone to think that they simply are not creative.
Crystals and Visuddha
The flow of energy through the Visuddha chakra is provoked by light-blue and turquoise-blue crystals. Blue is the color of
faith and protection. Crystals that are connected to this center are: angelite which helps with communication with angels
and higher intelligences, aquamarine which increases the ability of peaceful self-expression, blue topaz which
dissolves the fears of communication and stimulates the creativity, chrysocolla which helps with the personal
self-esteem, larimar which enables communication with people that are deeply buried in our hearts and souls,
tibetan turquoise which helps in getting help from other people while manifesting our desires, lapis lazuli,
blue chalcedony, and blue sapphire which cleanses the thoughts and emotions.
