The Third Eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the body’s energy system. The purpose of the Third Eye chakra is to help you to gain awareness of your higher self and the existence of a greater life force. By gaining awareness of your higher self, you realize that there is something beyond yourself, a higher life force that connects everyone in the Universe.  From this realization, you gain faith, hope, and peace.

The Third eye chakra strengthens intuition and sparks imagination.  It uses your imagination and intuition to help you align with your true path. It enables you to think outside of the box and find solutions to blockages in your life.

A well-balanced third eye chakra helps you dream of possibilities of what could be, while you are still conscious of reality.  An imbalanced third eye chakra creates a fantasy, a non-existent reality, which is an escape from reality.

TECHNIQUES TO BALANCE THE FOREHEAD CHAKRA

CRYSTAL MEDITATION

Find a comfortable and quiet spot to lie down. If it is a nice day outside, take the opportunity to lie in the grass and look at the clouds while you re-energize your forehead chakra with meditation.  Place one of the third eye chakra crystals— blue tourmaline, blue sapphire or opal— on your forehead between your brows. Try to be aware of the heaviness of the crystal as it sits on top your forehead.  Take a moment to sense the shape of the crystal. Once you have the outline of the crystal’s shape, try to picture the colour of the crystal. Relax and soak in the crystal’s healing energy.
