THIRD EYE Chakra

Updated: Apr 15

The Third Eye Chakra is one of, if not the most well-known chakra. Associated with the pineal gland, heightening the intuition, manifestation, and psychic powers the Third Eye Chakra has quite the reputation. This chakra is located in between the brows, mid-forehead. This chakra is often represented by the color indigo or dark blue/purple.


There are many reasons why our Third Eye Chakra may be blocked but are not limited to:


- Traumatic Events, Neglect, or Abuse

- Substance abuse (addiction is harmful to all chakras, but this chakra is especially sensitive to alternate realities)

-Mental Health Disorders (often coping with the symptoms of mental health disorders is all we can do, so don't fret too much about chakra {especially third eye chakra} work during difficult mental health periods)

- Fear of the supernatural, occult, and unexplained

- Overskepticism of others and self

- Naivety or willingness to look over red flags in others and self

- Scattered thinking

- Trouble sleeping, nightmares, or unusual lack of dreams


So how do we feel when the Third Eye Chakra is balanced and how can we get there?


When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced and healthy we feel like we have a clear vision for our dreams and desires. This doesn't necessarily mean we know all steps to achieve said goals, but our mind's eye has a clear vision of what we want. When this chakra is activated we may have more vivid encounters with the Divine and other Spirits. A free-flowing Third Eye Chakra may also spark your creativity and you may start getting "feelings" about people or situations that later turn out to be true. Signs and synchronicities might appear more frequently for you and you might be more interested in occult knowledge during this time.


Warning: Working with the Third Eye Chakra (especially if you've never actively tried) can be overwhelming even for those practicing for years, so please exercise caution when balancing and activating this chakra.


Grounding: The best advice I can give when working with the Third Eye Chakra is that are confident that you are firmly rooted to Mother Gaia and/or yourself. I recommend this because some images or messages that may appear in your mind's eye may be incredibly shocking, offensive, frightening, and even repulsive. If you are not grounded during this process, it can be traumatic. (Red Jasper, Black Tourmaline are two great grounding crystals I use daily)


Spiritual Texts and Occult Knowledge: A powerful way to open your Third Eye Chakra is to nourish this chakra with plenty of current and ancient spiritual knowledge. This could range from reading religious texts to watching Tarot readings on YouTube. You should feel like a student learning from these sources. It is not unusual to have a sudden or changed understanding of a concept, spiritual or not when working with this chakra. Eureka!


Mental Health Care: A prevalent struggle I've experienced and heard from my clients is telling the difference between a mental illness symptom (ie, anxiety, grandiose thinking) and intuition. Times of stress and inflamed mental illness symptoms can make this distinction nearly, if not impossible. This is why having a system set in place to support your mental health (even if you are currently mentally healthy!) is crucial, especially when balancing the Third Eye Chakra. Therapy is a great way to support your mental health if this is accessible for you.


If not, there are still plenty of ways to do this. There's a growing amount of free resources available online focusing on mental health tips and support. Getting plenty of sleep and a balanced diet is extremely helpful. Understanding/ exploring yourself, your triggers, your love language, and the language you practice with yourself can also be helpful in supporting your Third Eye Chakra.


ALWAYS SEEK PROFESSIONAL CARE WHEN NEEDED


Meditation: I personally find (trusted) guided meditations the most helpful when activating and working with the Third Eye Chakra because I feel more comfortable sinking into meditation knowing my mind's eye will only be experiencing safe images. However you feel most comfortable, safe, and grounded is always the best way to meditate. Keeping your mind focused on ideas like clarity, decisiveness, inner knowing, translating, or decoding may also be helpful.


Tarot, Runes, and other Divination Tools: Divination tools are a great way to activate your Third Eye and heighten your intuition. Using these tools also often leads to personal epiphanies and a greater understanding of the self. Once again, I highly recommend grounding yourself, keeping forms of spiritual protection, and doing your research when using any Divination tools and working with the Third Eye Chakra.


Holistic Healing: Holistic healing might be appealing to you while working with the Third Eye Chakra. Most holistic healers have the ability to navigate and guide you safely through a Third Eye activation and their services often trigger small and large-scale epiphanies. If you feel like you would also benefit from the care and support of a holistic healer, I suggest:


- Reiki Healing, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Sound Therapy, Reflexology, Light Therapy, Art Therapy. There are many different types of healing modalities so I encourage you to try different forms until you find what is most comforting and effective for you!


**Maybe you do something completely different than these suggestions for becoming passionate and working with the Third Eye Chakra. That is COMPLETELY okay. The goal for all healing is that it assists YOU in becoming the person you know yourself to be. That happens by listening to yourself and your body. **

Good luck in healing your Third Eye Chakra, remember to be gentle with yourself always.


Sending love and light,


Melissa
