The sixth, or Third Eye Chakra, when awakened, gives inspiration, intuition, insight and vision, and opens you to the world of your own psychic powers. It is through this chakra that you may connect to the higher self to seek and receive inner guidance.
Have a hard time keeping an open mind? An unbalanced Third Eye Chakra may impair your judgment, memory, clear thinking and concentration. You may not only have fuzzy thinking, but physical problems like headaches, sinusitis, vision problems, and nightmares. You may be addicted to accumulating material goods.
A balanced Third Eye Chakra helps your imagination soar, and you can draw on your intuitive powers of reasoning. Your psychic and telepathic abilities may be heightened, and you’ll be able to trust your inner wisdom.
YOGA POSES FOR THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA
Start with the Bumble Bee Breath, inhaling deeply then exhaling with the lips vibrating as you make the sound “hmmmmm.” Continue for a few minutes until you feel united with the vibration of the infinite. Then move into Kneeling Yoga Mudra, hands clasped behind you as you tuck the chin toward the chest, bend at the waist and lean forward until your head touches the floor.
THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA MEDITATION
The color blue from the Throat Chakra travels up to the third eye, the chakra of intuition, and turns an indigo color. Here we return to the magic of childhood, to unlimited possibilities, to skills we have always had but which were pushed out of sight. Now we are reintroduced to our true vision, as we breathe in and out the color indigo. We begin to awaken and clarify our inner vision and to have a clear picture of what we want our lives to be. We also awaken to a different kind of seeing, clairvoyance or clear sight, that allows us to look inside and beyond the limits of time and space.
