The Third Eye Chakra

We all have chakras or energy centers in our body. In Sanskrit, Chakra means a wheel or disk. Chakras are “wheels” or vortexes of swirling energy throughout our body. We have 7 main Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.

The Third Eye Chakra, also known as the inner eye – located on the forehead between the brows. This Chakra is all about “seeing” and is the centre of intuition, common sense, wisdom, memory and spirituality. The colour associated with this Chakra is indigo. Its element is light. A balanced, healthy Third Eye Chakra can help you to think clearly, develop your imagination and intuition, and hold a vision of the bigger picture of life. It leads to an expanded awareness of consciousness, spirituality and evolution. An imbalanced Third Eye Chakra can leave one feeling stuck, rejecting spirituality and with a lack of clarity.

Third Eye Chakra Affirmation

My mind is clear, flexible and able.  I can envision beauty and create goodness. My imagination is powerful, vivid and active. I am open to the wisdom within me, and to greater spiritual awareness. I trust my intuition and knowing. My knowledge serves others and brings me to new levels of understanding my True Nature. I see clearly in all ways. I am full of God’s grace, light and love. I have an unlimited vision for myself and life. Everything that happens in life is an opportunity to illuminate and learn and grow. I am my Source of love and life and truth. I connect to the Source energy. I know that all is well.

Simple Tips for Balancing Your Third Eye Chakra

  • Use the colour Indigo –  Crystals, lights, clothing, furniture or accessories. Envision the colour indigo in your forehead, just above your brows. Inhale, fill up with a soft indigo, transparent and bright light, and as you exhale, feel yourself opening to the wisdom of All There Is.
  • Fuel up –   Eat foods that nourish the brain and help us to feel relaxed. Eat intuitively; your body knows what it needs.
  • Light it up –  With the element of light, this Chakra heals by sitting out in the sunshine. Soak up those rays and those beautiful blue skies.
  • Accept where you’re at – Forget the competition, what is missing, or what seems a struggle in your life. Find a way to ease into knowing that all is well. Try to open to the possibilities or opportunities that lay before you. Learn and grow from what you face in a moment.
  • Move your body – Participate in Yoga, Tai Chi, and Walking, as well as Meditation, and Chanting. Any activity that feels right for you will allow you to drop into your body.
  • Trust – The best way to sharpen your intuition is to trust in the guidance you receive and the way your body speaks to you. The more you do it, the more you practice, the easier it will become to hear the wisdom speaking to you.
