Heal your fifth chakra with confident, authentic communication and by speaking your truth.

Speaking your truth is associated with the fifth chakra, also called vissudha. This energy center is often referred to as the throat chakra, but it also receives and sends energy via other areas including the thyroid, parathyroid, larynx, and mouth, jaw and tongue.

The fifth chakra is associated with communication and authentic expression. When this chakra is blocked—and someone is not expressing their needs and desires—anxiety rises, and tense neck muscles can result, as well as a sense of frustration and alienation.
