So, I’m aware that it is not Sunday, nor is it even Monday, but it’s time I posted the latest piece in our journey through the Chakras…I mean come on, you’ve all waited long enough.
So today is the turn of the Third Eye Chakra, which sits between the eyebrows connects us to our Inner Guidance and Intuition. It is closely connected to the higher Crown Chakra and is the link between our connection to Source and the Universe, and our Soul voice. Through a balanced and open Third Eye Chakra, we trust our intuition, we see our path clearly, and we have faith in our inner guidance. When this Chakra is out of balance it creates distrust, an inability to judge situations well, distraction and lack of focus, and often manifests its physical symptoms as headaches and problems with our eyes, insomnia, sinus trouble, and sometimes dizziness.
Sit comfortably for a few minutes when you know you wont be distracted. Take the time to let your breathing fall into a gentle rhythm, and begin to imagine the breath being drawn into, and out of, the Third Eye. With each inhalation, feel the cool breath begin to open the space where the Third Eye Chakra resides, and visualise a beautiful blue indigo colour spreading out before you. It’s common, when working with the Third Eye, to experience tingling sensations across the forehead. If you do feel anything out of the ordinary, simply acknowledge the sensation and let it pass.
At this stage, repeat the following affirmations either out loud or to yourself, for as long as you feel necessary;
“I see clearly. I think clearly. I trust my intuition. I know the answers I seek. I am wise and connected to my inner guidance.”
Surrounding yourself with a vibrant indigo blue is a great way to help heal this Chakra. Crystals such as Lapis Lazuli, Sapphire, Sodalite, and Azurite are also great companions for a little Third Eye love, and eating foods rich in deep blue hues, such as blackberries, blueberries, figs, grapes, and raisins, are perfect.
This Chakra can be a tricky one to keep open and balanced, especially if you are still struggling with your lower chakras, and haven’t yet mastered you self love and self worth. It’s easy to let your ability to trust your own inner voice slip by the wayside, but stick with it and with this one, more so actually than the others, the more you actively use it and trust it (your intuition), the easier it gets.
That’s all for today, folks…
Love and light xxx
