Spotlight on: Third Eye Chakra

Updated: Mar 4, 2023

The Third Eye chakra is perhaps one of the most well-known chakras. Located just between the eyes in the middle of the skull, our Third Eye chakra is the key to spiritual connection and communication.

What is the Third Eye Chakra?

Our Third Eye or Ajna chakra governs perception and awareness. It is related to imagination, clarity in thinking and universal connection. This complex chakra has many meanings and links within the body and energetically, most notably with the pineal gland. In many cultures and ancient philosophy the Third Eye is associated with intuition and spiritual perception. In spiritual circles the Third Eye is the key to psychic abilities including telepathy, astral projection, lucid dreaming and clairvoyance.

Signs our Third Eye Chakra is in balance

When our Third Eye chakra is in balance we feel receptive and connected. We can easily receive messages from spirit and the universe and are open to new possibilities, new perspectives and change. Signs of an open, balanced Third Eye chakra include:

  • Decisiveness

  • Bliss (known as Ananda)

  • Mental clarity

  • Easy focus

  • Good concentration

  • Strong intuition

Signs of an imbalanced Third Eye Chakra

When our Third Eye is blocked or imbalanced we are disconnected spiritually and can feel lost and uncertain in life. Common signs of an imbalanced Third Eye chakra include:

  • Uncertainty

  • Pessimism

  • Lack of purpose

  • Confusion

  • Negativity

How can I balance and open my Third Eye Chakra?

There are many ways you can work on opening your Third Eye chakra. Some of the most common and effective ways include:

Reiki: Energy healing is a great way to reconnect with your Third Eye chakra. Your practitioner will be able to address imbalances and identify which chakras need to be worked on.

Meditation: Meditating on your Third Eye chakra and visualising opening the connection to source. There are guided Third Eye meditations you can try on YouTube and Spotify.

Sun gazing: Sun gazing is a type of support that’s specific to this chakra. It involves looking carefully and gently at the sun for a short amount of time first thing in the morning and in the evening, when it isn’t too bright.

Crystal therapy: Crystals are especially effective at awakening and aligning the Third Eye chakra. Crystals with a violet hue such as amethyst, purple sapphire and rhodonite can be carried with you, worn in a bracelet or necklace, or placed in your home to impart their energy.
