Description: The fifth chakra is located in the throat. It is the color blue and the element ether. It is about communication and expression.

Learning How to Speak Your Truth
The fifth chakra is about learning how to speak your truth. It is also about learning how to speak from your heart. If your throat chakra is shut down you will not be able to express what is in your heart.
In order to express yourself clearly, especially in intimate and emotional situations, it is important to know yourself. The fifth chakra and developing it involves a level of spiritual maturity. It involves being able to speak your truth and speak your needs without having to resort to yelling or throwing temper tantrums.
From childhood most of us were not taught how to ask for what we need, thinking that if we did it would mean we are needy. Needs are normal and natural. Being able to clearly understand and express your needs to another instead of having a fit or pouting, is part of learning how to open your throat chakra.
There is no need to have a tantrum to get attention or get your way. Ultimately it will backfire on you and you will sabotage your relationships. The throat chakra teaches you how to get your needs met as well as create deeper connections with others.
