The throat chakra is located at the center of the throat. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Advanced Pranic Healing)
It has sixteen petals and contains predominantly blue prana with some green and violet pranas.
SPIRITUAL FUNCTIONS OF THROAT CHAKRA
The throat chakra in Kabbalah means “knowledge.” ( MCKS Spiritual Essence of Man) It is also the center for higher creativity.
For a person trying to develop spirituality, its role is being a spiritual bridge to the higher world.
Associated with the throat chakra or Vishuddhi Chakra is a very important teaching necessary for one’s spiritual development: What comes out of the mouth is more important than what goes in. This is implied in Mark 7:15-22 and Ephesians 4:29. If what goes into the mouth is dirty, it just dirties the physical body. If what comes out of the mouth is dirty, it dirties the soul. It is of great importance to practice “pure thoughts” and “pure speech” rather than put excessive emphasis on “clean” food.
The throat chakra is the center of the concrete mind or the lower mental faculty. (Master Choa Kok Sui, The Spiritual Essence of Man) It is through the use of the throat chakra or the concrete mind that a person acquires knowledge.
The throat chakra is the center of the lower mental faculty or the concrete mind. It is used when meticulous details are involved in such activities as studying, planning, painting, etc. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Pranic Psychotherapy) The throat chakra or Vishddhi chakra is also the center of higher creativity, while the sex chakra or swadhishtana chakra is the center of “physical creativity” or procreation. When the throat chakra is quite strong and active, the sex chakra is also quite strong. This is why artists or creative people have strong sexual drives. However, sex energy can be sublimated by bringing it up to the throat chakra.
Many artists, successful politicians and businessmen have highly developed throat and sex chakras. This explains why some of them tend to have sexual affairs. It is impossible for a person to be highly creative and still have an underactivated sex chakra, be impotent or frigid. For the throat chakra to be highly activated, it is necessary for the sex chakra or swadhishtana chakra to be strong. But the reverse is not necessarily true. A highly activated sex chakra does not necessarily mean a highly activated throat chakra.
The throat chakra or Vishuddhi Chakra controls and energizes the throat, voice box or larynx, air tube or trachea, thyroid glands, parathyroid glands and the lymphatic system. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Advanced Pranic Healing) To a certain degree, it also influences the sex chakra. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Miracles Through Pranic Healing)
The throat chakra, secondary throat chakra and jaw minor chakras control and energize the mouth, salivary glands and esophagus. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Advanced Pranic Healing)
The jaw minor chakras, the throat chakra and the secondary throat minor chakra affect and energizes the carotid arteries going to the head.
Since the throat chakra also controls the mouth, and the mouth is used for chewing and digesting food, a lot of green prana is produced in a person when he is eating. Green prana has a breaking-down effect.
SOME CONDITIONS AS A RESULT OF A MALFUNCTIONING FOREHEAD CHAKRA
Depletion of the sex chakra will cause the throat chakra to become partially depleted. (Master Choa Kok Sui, Advanced Pranic Healing)
Malfunctioning of the throat chakra manifests as throat-related ailments such as goiter, sore throat, loss of voice, asthma, sterility, etc. (MCKS Basic Pranic Healing)
In asthma the throat chakra, the secondary throat minor chakra, the back heart chakra and the basic or mooladhara chakra are affected. The air tubes are constricted. Sometimes, asthma is caused by emotional factors. If the patient is not able to express freely due to relationship problems, the trachea or the windpipe will most likely be constricted. (MCKS Advanced Pranic Healing)
Sometimes, shoulder pain could be caused by tension or emotional problem which affects the solar plexus chakra and the throat chakra. Malfunctioning of the throat chakra may affect the armpit minor chakra which manifests as shoulder pain.
With infants or small children, vomiting is sometimes caused by throat irritation; therefore, the throat chakra and the secondary throat minor chakra have to be treated.
In hyperthyroidism the solar plexus chakra or Manipura Chakra is congested and filled with dirty red energy. Part of this diseased energy goes to the throat chakra or Vishuddhi Chakra, causing the throat chakra to become reddish and overactivated. The ajna chakra is partially affected and contaminated with dirty red energy. Upon scanning the throat chakra, the healer may feel that it is relatively small and underactivated. This may be because the patient has already taken medication for quite some time which has inhibited the throat chakra. This is why sometimes, a patient with hyperthyroidism may end up having hypothyroidism.
When a person worries too much, the throat chakra is overactivated. This manifests as the mind becoming overmeticulous. (Master Choa Kok Sui,Pranic Psychotherapy)
EQUIVALENT ACUPUNCTURE POINTIn Chinese medicine, it corresponds to the acupuncture point RN (CV) 23. (Master Choa Kok Sui, The Spiritual Essence of Man)

In Kabbalah it is called Daath. The divine name of Daath is Yehovah Elohim.
