Learn everything about this Chakra mantra that is known to make you more expressive

The Vishuddha Mantra, or the 'Ham' mantra, is associated with the Vishuddha or Throat chakra.

The Vishuddha chakra is the fifth of the seven chakras or energy centers residing in different locations of the human body.

The throat chakra is located in the throat. The Vishuddha chakra is considered to be the energy center that fuels your identity, your voice, your truth.

It's name comes from its particular function of purifying toxicity that we 'breathe' in. This toxicity can be more than physical, like thoughts and ideas.

'Vishuddha', in the Sanskrit language, means detoxed. It is derived from two Sanskrit words, visha (poison) and shuddhi (purification).

This chakra is associated with space or ether. It is considered to be the source of the purifying force that removes all toxicity that we accumulate over time.

If the throat chakra is out of harmony, it can hamper the growth of our mind, body, and soul.

Moreover, an imbalance in the throat chakra can impact you physically with issues like anxiety, speech impediments, and thyroid-related issues.

The Ham sound activates the throat chakra. It is the seed syllable or bija mantra of the Vishuddha chakra.

It cleanses all the pent-up toxicity in your body as well as your psyche. This makes you the best version of yourself, both emotionally and physically.

Chanting the Vishuddha mantra regularly cleanses your throat chakra and heals you of your past mistakes.

It gives you, your body and mind, a clean slate to better yourself.

Vishuddha mantra is part of the Ancient Chakra Healing Meditation Mantras.
