The fifth chakra’s color is light blue, like a clear light blue sky. The element associated with the throat chakra is space. Understanding and learning are two of its qualities. Rather than accumulation of knowledge (what there is to know is infinite and always changing), what is needed is an understanding of the eternal and how to be a part of that constant. Space is by far the greatest component of the material world. Look up at the night sky and see the vast distances between the stars. The distance between the individual atomic particles that make us up are proportionally as great. We, and everything in the physical universe, are comprised of very little actual matter. The energy that binds that matter forms the impression of things being solid.
