The third eye chakra sits between your eyebrows and is the colour indigo. This is the energy center that is associated with deep insight, perspective, wisdom and creative visualization.
When our third eye chakra is balanced, we are able to approach life circumstances with deep understanding and creativity. We are also able to have an accurate intuitive sense and foresight.
On a physical level, an imbalanced third eye chakra manifests as eye issues, headaches, and neurological disturbances. Emotionally, an imbalance may appear as anxiety. On a behavioural level, one may have difficulties focusing or concentrating. On a mental level, one may either be delusional or lack in imagination. An imbalance in the third eye can also cause one to be overly analytical or take things too literally.
Experiences that lead to a third chakra imbalance:
• Being programmed by institutions, organizations, or parents in a manner that forces you to ignore your intuitive sense
• Not spending enough time using the right, creative side of your brain
• Going through difficult times resulting in an expectation of the worst for the future
Tips to Balance Your Third Eye Chakra
This is one of the best ways to expand your third eye chakra. Try mindfulness-based meditation to keep you in the present moment or transcendental meditation to release anxiety from your mind, body and spirit.
People often think of daydreaming as a waste of time but everything that exists now was once imagined. Spend time imagining a positive future or daydreaming about your wishes.
Pay Attention to Your Dreams
Your subconscious mind speaks to you through imagery in your dreams. If you spend time recording and analyzing them, it is likely that you will uncover important insights about yourself and your life.
Embrace Your Creativity
Remember that no matter what you are going through in your life, you have the power to change it. Stay optimistic and use your creativity to take you to a better place. Remember that life is a journey that can’t be rushed and even baby steps are significant.
