[Cues Redbone by Childish Gambino] We made it to the third eye chakra (Ajna in Sanskrit) which helps us see beyond physical reality!
All About the Third Eye
The third eye is located in between our brows and is associated with the color indigo. It allows us to have awareness of our psychic abilities.
It is important to balance our third eye because it allows us to trust ourselves beyond logic or reasoning. With a balanced third eye, we gain wisdom and a deeper connection to our intuition.
Signs of Imbalance
Here are signs that your third eye may be imbalanced:
- Ignoring your intuition
- Often becoming lost in thoughts
- Habitually daydreaming to escape reality
- Rarely feel creative/inspired
- Strongly attached to outcomes
- Emotionally reactive
- Rigid opinions about the world/Not doing anything about it
- Superficial interactions with people
- Lack of focus
- Frequent headaches/migraines
- Feeling stuck in the ‘rat race’ and not being able to look beyond problems
- Not seeing the bigger picture
- Refusing all that is spiritual
Balancing the Third Eye
If you do these practices everyday (or as often as possible), you will see beyond what meets the eye!
Chanting the root chakras mantra “AUM” while placing this mudra (hands form triangle which is placed inbetween brow)
Meditating while envisioning the color indigo/white at your third eye brightening with each breath.
Eating purple/brain health foods such as: grapes, blackberries, blueberries, eggplants, purple kale, purple cabbage, purple sweet potatoes, walnuts, coconut oil, flax seeds, chia seeds, and avocados
*cacao **dark chocolate helps with mental clarity and causes the body to release serotonin (the feel good hormone)***
*For bonus connection to the third eye, eat mindfully!*
Get your third eye open with oils such as
Angelica Root. Bay Laurel. Clary Sage. Cypress. Elemi. Frankincense. Helichrysum. Juniper.
Soak in sunlight – Practice Mindfulness daily – Meditate daily – Take ayahuasca – Observe thoughts – Keep a dream journal – Wear indigo – Enjoy silence – Create something – Spend more time in complete darkness – Use technology less – Chant – Read books/Watch documentaries that expand the mind
Affirmations can be spoken out loud or silently in your mind. Affirmations are charged when you state them several times (at least three) while feeling that what is stated is true.
