Moving upwards we are getting into more internal subtle aspects of our being. It is surprising how speech and communication is all the way up there. At a first glance one would expect speech after Solar Plexus before Heart Centre, because our ego is the one doing most of the talking. Our mind hardly stops and listens the gentle voice of our hearts before spilling out all the chatter. However in a spiritual sense, speech only happens when it's filtered thought the heart and it improves upon silence. It's meant to me the purest way of connecting, sharing and expression.
