The chakra body is an exact replica of the physical body as seen through the subtle, energy vortexes coinciding with major glands and their primary, internal organs. This subtle part of the human system manages vitality and energy, taking in light and heat from the sun, planets, environment and people throughout the day. The chakras are a filtering, sampling, expressive organic machine that experiences every nuance of life through the senses.
To properly manage vitality and good health of this component of the human operating system one must be sure to get adequate sunshine, enjoy a nourishing diet that provides the necessary proteins and vitamins while avoiding fatigue or worry, which can quickly become disease for the etheric body.
The chakra body is vitalized by prana, which is received from the Sun at three places on the body: between the shoulder blades, above diaphragm and through the spleen. The condition of the spleen determines the intensity of prana that one receives in the physical body. This intensity enters into the spleen according to each person’s vibrational quality and state of health.
If the individual is unhealthy, the prana intake is lowered and slowed down. The more healthy the physical body, the better it receives this vital energy, hence, the necessity for a pure physical body and practicing stretches daily. If receptivity to vital stimulation and good health is poor then chakras become atrophied and closed down.
Quality living conditions, a good diet, sunshine and practicing ethical, moral habits are all antidotes for receiving more prana and vitalization of this important subtle body.
Daily cleansing rituals for the etheric body include bathing with sea salts, using aromatherapy oils, floral waters, smudging with sage and sweeping the aura with feathers.
Organic vegetables and fruits assists greatly in keeping the etheric body healthy and receptive to prana energy. Crystals and gemstones are predominantly etheric in nature and directly heal the etheric body and chakra centers.

If we are agitated, emotional, frustrated or angry, then our reality is challenged and fraught with lots of lessons. We also tend to lose friends and burn bridges.
This chakra is not only about speaking but it is also about listening to others. If there are hearing problems, perhaps one is not interested in hearing the truth.
