What Does the Throat Chakra Color Mean?

Each of the chakras are associated with a color. The Throat Chakra dances to the enchanting tune of blue.

The blue color embodies qualities such as liberty, purity, devotion, innovation, clarity, self-confidence, and trust.

It is a symbol of authenticity and genuine communication. That’s why blue is often used in corporate logos as it inspires trust and honesty. 

Nature itself offers clues to the calming effect of blue – think of the blue of a clear sky and the deep turquoise of the ocean and clear skies.
