The following practice is very simple. Vishiuidhi shuddhi - 'the purification of the vishuddhi'.
Sit in a comfortable position.
Hold the back straight and close the eyes.
Become aware of the breath.
Fold your tongue back into khechari mudra6.
For a minute or so be aware of the sound of the breath at the throat.
Let your breathing become slower and deeper. Then with inhalation, imagine that the breath is being drawn in through the vishuddhi kshetram at the front of the throat. Feel that the breath passes through the kshetram and eventually pierces vishuddhi chakra in the spine.
With exhalation, feel the breath move forwards from vishuddhi chakra trigger point towards the kshetram and eventually outwards in front of the body. This is 1 round.
Continue for at least 5 minutes or longer, if you have time available.
Daily practice in this manner will gradually develop your sensitivity to vishuddhi chakra and kshetram.
