Maintaining healthy chakras is an important aspect of your well being and living a life with vitality, harmony, and in alignment with your Soul Truth. The Third Eye specifically is responsible for your reality, perception, manifesting, and intuitive wisdom. It’s a doorway to Spirituality and your Soul Truth. 

The third eye chakra is where conscious mind and the natural world meet and is particularly vital to you because it allows you to cut through fantasy and illusion and access your deeper Soul Truths.  When you bring these two worlds together you can enhance your own ability to manifest.

  • You may notice an increase in your own desire to touch it or feel as though someone is touching it.
  • When you place your hand (about one to two inches) over your Third Eye Chakra, you may notice a warm sensation.
  • Notice an increased trust in your own insight that comes from within.
  • Sudden moments of wholeness and healing about issues you’ve had trouble healing and resolving for yourself.

Supporting Your Healthy
Third Eye Chakra

1. Do Different!

Explore different viewpoints, and learn by placing yourself in different places to explore them!  Explore communities, classrooms, even watch a new TV show you wouldn’t normally watch. Documentaries about anything that different than your own beliefs is a great place to start. Do something out of your norm simply to practice being OPEN MINDED and do your best to let go of the outcome of your experience. Move past comfort zones!

2. Grounding

Practice grounding exercises daily. The easiest one to practice is to be FULLY PRESENT in the moment knowing that whatever is going on is happening FOR you and TO you. Focus on BREATH to help you be present. Breathwork can be done at any time! 

Meditation is also always an excellent start to your day, too. Remember… meditation doesn’t have to be transcendental and complete quieting of the mind to work. A few minutes of quiet time in observance of your thoughts is good.

Finally, schedule daily time quiet time, as well, to reflect as part of your overall Spiritual Practice.

3. Discern What You Eat

Eliminate processed foods. and drink lots of water. If you like tea, use organic teas with the herbs listed in #4 (below).

4. Aroma

Use herbs like star anise, basil, jasmine, lavender, passion flower, rosemary, and blue lotus. You can diffuse them, burn incense, or apply the essential oils. 

Just as you do anything to maintain your body (like see the dentist and brush your teach to care for your oral hygiene) so must you take care of your energy (even if you can’t see it). Learn this for yourself, take a lesson in the healing arts, buy a book about chakras, or schedule time to see a healer you trust.
