The fifth chakra, Vishuddha, is the first of the three spiritual chakras. To be open and aligned in the fifth chakra is to speak, listen, and express yourself from a higher form of communication. Faith and understanding combine the essence of the Vishuddha chakra meaning. The element corresponding to the fifth chakra is ether or space, and the sense is hearing.
Crystal: Blue Lace Agate is all about communication skills and how to make your voice heard. When we open our throat chakra, our voice immediately becomes stronger and energy built up from our lower chakras can be released into the world.
