Chakra  5

Graphic from - A brief introduction to the Chakra System

Chakra Five: Sound, Creative identity, oriented to self-expression

This is the chakra located in the throat and is thus related to communication, self-expressiona and the expression of creativity (creativity itself comes from the higher chakras). Here the world is experienced symbolically through vibration, such as the vibration of sound representing language.  Christipher Hills relates this level also to the higher aspect of religion (spiritual contemplation) and to Mysticism

Knowledge: Intuition rather than reasoning.  The universe is experienced symbolically through vibration, such as the subtle vibration of sound in mantra, and in specific postures and guestures (mudra).
