Painting the Chakras – Third Eye Chakra

The sixth chakra located in the middle of the eyebrows, connects to our cosmic insight. When off balance there may be moodiness, day-dreaming and distrust. When in balance, we feel open and focused, a deep spiritual connection, strong morality and can easily determine between truth and illusion.

The colour of the Third Eye Chakra (also known as Brow Chakra) is Indigo blue.

The Third Eye Chakra’s element is light, so light therapie, sitting in stillness in nature basking in the sunlight or lying quietly with an eye pillow is energizing.

Visualise a spinning indigo blue ball of energy in your minds eye, between your eyebrows. Imagine it expand all around your head with purpose strengthening your ability to dream, to visualise, to think without attachment. Connect to your inner knowing. Visualise your mind illuminating with the light until you feel fully clear.

Repeat as osten as you wish, with eyes closed the following positive affirmations:

I see. I see the truth in all situations. I trust my intuition and inner wisdom and follow them. My life is divinely guided and always taking me in the direction best for me. I accept my path. I am healing in body, mind and spirit.

The Third Eye Chakra is associated with the element light, so assist your focus to gain further intuition with pure therapy essential oils. Light a candle and meditate on its flame. Recommended aromas are Geranium, Basil, Jasmine, Lavender, Rosemary and Mint.

Food to stimulate this Chakra: figs, grapes, raisins, blackberries, prunes, eggplant, purple cabbage, purple kale, purple potatoes, purple carrots, purple asparagus.

For sharpening the intellect try logic puzzles or brain-training exercises.
