Today I’ll be going over the third eye chakra, which is located in the center of the forehead, just above and between the eyebrows.
It is associated with the color indigo, and with a combination of all of the elements and light. Being associated with light, stated simply, means that this chakra’s energy helps to illuminate all things in our lives. It is known to many as being the chakra of intuition, which it is, however, there is much more to it. This chakra shines a light for us on matters ranging from our place in the universe, imagination, and governs altered states of consciousness.
A few crystals which are excellent for working with this chakra are amethyst, iolite, and labradorite . The third eye chakra is associated with the planet Saturn, the sun, and the moon. This chakra can be viewed as our intuition and creative/imagination center, helping us to tap into our intuitive ability, wisdom, creative inspiration, and the subtle energies around us. I recommend picking up at least one of the crystals mentioned above this week, to help get this chakra balanced before we get to the exercise I’ll be sharing at the end of this series. Below are some of the key points of the physical and spiritual/emotional functions of the third eye chakra.
The third eye chakra is primarily associated with feminine qualities. When it is balanced it can help us feel more spiritually aligned, have more clarity, tune in to our intuition, embrace truth and change, be more creative, and foster open-mindedness. As the seat of our intuition and creativity, it is important to note that a blocked third eye chakra can be soothed through meditation, creative expression, reflecting upon how imagination can be used more often, journaling, daydreaming, and spending time in nature (especially in the sunshine or moonlight).
While covering each chakra, this paragraph will (usually) remain unchanged, with the exception of the color visualization. Please spend time this week visualizing this chakra as a still, vibrant, indigo wheel in the location described at the beginning of the post, as this will make the exercise at the end of this series a bit easier. If you’ve picked up one or more of the crystals listed above (which I hope you will), holding this crystal while visualizing the chakra will start to do some healing on it before we even get to the final exercise. For all of the individual chakras we will cover in this series, please go gently and get to know them without trying to get them moving until we get to the final exercise. It is always important when working with your energy to go into it slowly and learn a bit before diving in head first.
Please remember to practice the mini exercise as often as possible.
Feel free to ask questions you may have about this chakra, or any other topics which you may like to see covered here at a later date.
As always, I’m sending lots of love and light your way.
