The 5th Chakra is the center of self-expression and stress protection. Through it we express our thoughts, feelings, desires and truths. This chakra represents our capability to say “yes” or “no” to what life offers us. This is the first of our higher chakras and can help us to rise above the everyday problems and to both look at the world with more awareness and experience joy in every situation. This is the chakra of gratefulness and receiving all that we ask for. It is the chakra of abundance.
