Our Third Eye Chakra lies centered behind our eyebrows. Here is our imagination, intuition, wisdom, and intuition. Now that we are in our sixth chakra, we’ve entered into the more divine/spiritual side of our chakra system. There are tons of people out there who do not believe in a “Third Eye,” and yet probably just as many who do believe. Whether you want to call it the “Third Eye” or not, imagination and wisdom are ideas that most believe. Our Third Eye is the center for wisdom and imagination. It’s the things we individually “come up” with. Wisdom is that next step after learning. It is adaption and being able to apply what it is we’ve learned. When blocked, our Third Eye can cause lack of imagination, problems remembering our dreams, poor decision making, or even headaches. When overloaded we can also suffer from headaches, as well as trouble distinguishing dreams from reality, psychosis, and just having too much going on in your mind to function.
For awakening and aligning our Third Eye Chakra, I’ve turned to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Chakras by Betsy Rippentrop and Eve Adamson:
AWAKENING THE CHAKRA
ALIGNING THE CHAKRA
HEALING THE BLOCKED CHAKRA
To heal a blocked chakra meditation is yet again the go-to. You can also try drawing or painting, attempt to keep track of your dreams in a journal, practice visualization, and get more purple in your life or environment.
HEALING THE OVERLOADED CHAKRA
To heal an overloaded chakra you need to work on being present. Take some time to focus on details of things in your vicinity. Less time spent daydreaming will do you a lot of good.
