The Third Eye Chakra

Your third eye chakra, also known in sanskrit as the Ajna Chakra, is the 6th chakra and it sits between your eyebrows and just above the eyes. It's color is indigo and the mantra sound is om(aauummm). It is connected to the pineal gland inside the brain where lies our perception of light and altered or higher states of consciousness. Your sixth sense! It is also associated with vision, wisdom, psychic abilities, perception, and spiritual connection. Physical symptoms that may mean this chakra is blocked are vision problems, lack of creativity and focus, not following your intuition, headaches, ear and sinus issues, and sleep disturbances. Some may experience anxiety and depression. To help clear, you can mentally chant om or say it out loud, eat blueberries, plums, beets, blackberries, grapes, eggplant, goji berries, lemon, honey, and coconut oil. Imagining the color while meditating, wear indigo, or paint your nails indigo! Gorgeous! Good essential oils to use are jasmine, sandalwood, and lemon diffused or applied to the third eye but safely mix with a carrier oil such as almond or jojoba for use on the skin.

Affirmations you can use:

I follow my intuition fully.

I am connected to universal and spiritual consciousness.

I trust my inner guidance to direct me on the right path.

My mind is clear, focused, and open to new ideas.

Great crystals to wear or meditate with are amethyst, violet agate, peacock ore, fluorite, and labradorite.
