Statement: "I want to speak freely and openly."
Many people function from their lower chakras, and society even seems to encourage it. Opening your fifth chakra is to start to function on a different level, and may be difficult.
This is the center of communication, and you will want to talk about what you are experiencing. People may fall away, but true friends will always be there, so try to let go of those who are uncomfortable with you instead of holding back. New friends, more on your level, and where you want to be, will start to gravitate towards you.
Children with an open fifth chakra are those who are allowed to speak freely, sing, cry and scream when it is necessary. They have been encouraged to trust their own instincts. When they reach school they often have a hard time encountering a new set of rules and values. This often results in chronic sore throats or ear infections. They just need to be assured that their reality, although it is different, is valid.
Blue is soothing and calming, effects are especially apparent in small children and the dying.
