Healing the (6th) Third Eye Chakra
Functions: The Third Eye is linked to psychic ability, meditation, and awareness. But did you know that the Third Eye Chakra also receives and releases ideas, innovation, and mental stress? It is a visionary center. Ideas that flow through the great universal energy matrix can be captured by our third eye, bringing innovation. It is the birthplace of manifestation. Everything we do begins with a thought. Whether it's simply lifting a pen off the floor or a loftier goal like a drafting a big business venture, the inner vision precedes the outer motion. We make, move, and manifest every millisecond of our lives, hence it is important to keep the Third Eye Chakra healthy. This ensures metal progression and evolution.
Not all ideas that come to us are positive. We are bombarded with negativity, doubt, and temptation. When we keep our inner eye activated, we can filter out the negativity and focus on the positive goal. The energy that enters the Third Eye stimulates fresh ideas, and as it leaves through the skull it sets us into motion so that we take the correct actions toward success. If the front of our chakra is open but the back is blocked, we may receive lots of ideas but feel unable to achieve them. This causes stress, frustration and inability to act. Fears and doubts become trapped. Therefore a healthy Third Eye Chakra is not only an innovation magnet, but also assists us in manifesting those ideas into a physical reality through positive action.
We all know one or two people who constantly voice their wishes or aspirations, but never follow through on their words. These are the folks who have sixth chakra energy blockage somewhere within the vortex which inhibits them from acting. On the other hand, if one's front is blocked but back is open, one may act without proper thought or reason. A completely blocked third eye could render a person void of motivation or mentally unstable. Thank goodness crystals can help keep the balance.
In addition bringing Earthly goals and action, the Third Eye is famous for its spiritual functions. When we go into deep meditation or trance, we surpass the worldly thoughts and connect with spiritual visions. The sixth chakra is the mind's eye because we can actually glimpse the spirit world through this portal. Some clairvoyants and children even see the spiritual realm merged with the everyday physical world.
I have hosted hundreds of guided meditations in the past, and those who attended regularly began to develop their Third Eye. Some people could see spirit guides, guardian angels, Masters and light beings surrounding them or bringing messages. Others saw signs and symbols to guide them on their journey. Incredibly, others could connect with fairies, aliens, and various energies coexisting in the grand Universe. The good news is for those who had a hard time visualizing, it got easier with practice and repetition. It's no wonder that the Third Eye Chakra is a favorites among the metaphysical crowd.
Colors: The Third Eye Chakra is associated with deep or royal blue color.
Location: This chakra vortex spins through the invisible third eye, located just above the bridge of the nose. The energy flows in a clockwise motion through the head and out the back side of the skull.
