The Temptations. Perhaps the single coolest, baddest cats in all of Motown Records stable of cool, bad cats. “Ball of Confusion” is still, like so many of their works, a bad ass slice of stone cold brilliance. Yes, The Temps certainly were wide open when it comes to Visuddha, the throat chakra.
For those of you looking to open, balance or heal your throat chakras, The Square humbly offers up this meditation and focusing art work to assist in any way it may. Visuddha, the fifth chakra, is located near the throat and is the center of truth, knowledge and willpower. In his wonderful book, “Meditation As Medicine”, Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa states that he feels it quite appropriate that the seat of the will should lie between the heart and the head and I have to agree with his thinking. He goes on to tell us that physical manifestations of problems or imbalances in our fifth chakra can be seen as thyroid dysfunction and throat problems. I recommend his book along with “Wheels of Life” from Anodea Judith, Ph.D, as very good chakra information. There’s lots of great reference material out there on chakras. And no, I don’t get paid to shill these things, lol…
Here’s links to books and information…
Now, lets get to The Great Koo-Ka Boo-Ga itself, Visuddha, The Throat Chakra, also lovingly referred to as old #5
Oh I do love that blue… the rich, deep blue blacks into that softer glowing aqua blue. Go ahead, blow it up big. Click it, then click it again. Soak your throat in it. Chant softly “guru’ and feel the vibration in your throat. Open it. Heal it. Sing your song. Write your novel. Create. Visuddha loves artists of all types. Visuddha especially loves those who bring artistry and intention to the smallest of things, like washing the dishes.
And the band played on…
