The throat chakra – or Vishuddha in Sanskrit – is the 5th chakra and is centred in the throat area of the body. The area rules our abilities for communication, creativity, connection and personal intentions. It is also represented by the color blue. Here I have included crop circles in 8 of its 16 petals to represent communication from a divine order. The centre point represents the element of akasha – or ether – where creativity stems from. Also known as the purification centre, this chakra is of particular importance for the practice of dream yoga.
