The energy centers of the body are known as chakras. Starting at the bottom of the spine and finishing at the crown of the head, the primary seven chakras drive straight the spinal cord. They are all colored differently and relate to different demands and emotions. The chakras' colors mimic the ROYGBIV color scheme, which starts with red and ends with violet.
Chakras receive and transmit energy, which affects the organs nearby. The energy flow is disturbed when a chakra is unbalanced or blocked. This could cause health problems in the nearby neighborhood.
There are a total of seven chakras. Vishuddha, or THROAT CHAKRA, is the fifth chakra. It can be found towards the base of the throat. This chakra is termed as BLUE CHAKRA as it is associated with blue color. Understanding these colors can help you unclog and balance your chakras, which can be a powerful technique to release or repair stagnated energy.

MEANING AND BENEFITS OF BLUE CHAKRA: THROAT CHAKRA
WHAT IS THE BLUE CHAKRA?
Blue is the hue that we identify with Heaven and links you to the Divine. Pure, tranquil, soothing, and healing blue energy. You'll be at ease. Serene. Content. Tranquil. That is the strength of the color of the throat chakra. Blue is often associated with the cooler end of the spectrum, wherein things slow down and you can take some time to be still.
Also, pay attention to your voice. To pay attention to the silence within and to say what has to be said. Blue is the color of pure mind in Buddhist philosophy, meaning a mind free of thoughts. A pure mind can be found in quiet.
Blue energy is a guiding force that can help you develop faith and trust. The colors red, orange, yellow, and green direct your attention to movement, relationships, activity, and things that can be seen on the ground.
The color blue draws your attention to the tiny vibrations that pervade every aspect of existence. The seat of creativity can be found by unfolding the petals of your throat chakra. You have a natural ability to communicate with ease and clarity. You start expressing your true self.

RELATED ORGANS - Lungs, thyroid gland, endocrine gland, and throat. Unbalance in this location might impair the upper digestive tract. Turquoise is very beneficial to the throat and heart chakras.
BLUE AND CREATIVITY
If you're like most people, you link creativity with the color orange, which is the second chakra. To some extent, this is correct. The second chakra is a creative potential center where we construct another person.
However, this is an unconscious process. It's creativity that comes from our bodies, rather than from our minds, emotions, or a spark of inspiration. After all, we don't consciously build a baby's legs or arms. It's a completely unconscious procedure.
Conscious creativity, on the other hand, is represented by blue energy. It's creation at a higher level of consciousness. It's when your insights collide with collective consciousness, allowing you to tap into the wisdom of the Universe. When your fifth chakra is open, you'll feel a surge of creative energy, get flashes of creative insight, and be inspired to create.
This is an intentional creation in which you make use of all of your lower chakra forces. You gain access to the Divine and universal knowledge, which you combine with your unique reality. The throat chakra creates when you speak your truth (whether through writing, singing, dancing, or painting).

You will develop new thought patterns, habits, and actions which are in line with our sentiments of authenticity as well as self-expression.
ACTIVATE THE THROAT CHAKRA BY DOING CERTAIN POSTURES

Holding asanas whilst engaging to the breath helps to reduce tension and provide vitality to the throat or thyroid. Plow, camel, shoulder stand, cat-cow with lion's breath, and fish pose are all throat chakra positions.
MEDITATION FOR MINDFULNESS
Quieting the mind is the first step towards connecting with our inner truth. By concentrating on the breath, mindful breathing might help to quiet thoughts. Focus on yourself: inhaling in with each inhale. Then, as you exhale, repeat after me: breathing out. Observe any ideas or distractions that occur and allow them to pass calmly.
Even a brief 5 minutes of focused breathing is more difficult than it appears because our minds are continuously bombarded with thoughts. With practice, mindfulness meditation becomes easier and brings peace and space to our brains.
We learn to touch more directly with our inner selves and awaken the throat chakra by practicing silence.
You may experience difficulties with creativity as well as communication if the throat chakra is obstructed or misplaced. Physical symptoms such as a sore throat, thyroid imbalance, and hearing difficulties could all be caused by throat chakra issues.
The good news is that you can heal your THROAT CHAKRA through stones and activate it to optimum through different methods.
