Learn how to open the third eye chakra, otherwise known as the wisdom chakra. Take control of yourself instead of giving in to the cravings of your body and senses. Open yourself to a new dimension of reality and a deeper spiritual journey. The third eye chakra is located slightly above the gap between the eyebrows. It is symbolically associated with the colors indigo and sapphire, and the sense of sight. It is responsible for our intuition, parapsychic abilities, rich imagination, contact with the Higher Self and inner knowledge. It enables us to look at experiences and life from a broader perspective.
Signs of disorders in the third eye chakra:
rejection of spirituality;
trusting only the intellect;
satisfying only bodily and material needs, without spiritual development;
lack of trust in oneself and one’s intuition;
rush of thoughts;
the view that only your opinions are right;
shutting off your imagination and difficulty visualizing anything;
lack of faith in dreams;
lack of a sense of fulfillment in life;
a sense of loneliness and lack of support;
difficulty in making decisions;
a belief that there is no point to your work/activities;
on a physical level, these can include headaches, back pain, leg pain, insomnia, memory and vision problems, sinus pain;
feelings of frustration and powerlessness as a result of rejecting the spiritual element within yourself, inner wisdom and blocking the expression of your own soul;
feelings of anxiety, problems with setting life goals and self-confidence;
overactivity of the chakra manifests itself in the rejection of worldly matters and focusing only on the spiritual world.
It is important to be ready to open the third eye chakra. We need to first harmonize and cleanse the lower chakras, quiet our mind, and change our consciousness to a high-vibrational one. Take care of grounding. Otherwise, we may suffer the negative consequences of prematurely opening the sixth chakra. There are two main causes when the third eye chakra becomes blocked – a traumatic experience and the feeling of being undervalued by other people.
A harmonized third eye chakra manifests itself in trusting intuition, being guided by life, free flow of inspiration, rich imagination, and a sense of oneness with everything. Opening the wisdom chakra can activate parapsychic abilities, such as telepathy and clairvoyance. Its opening is certainly a moment of transition to a new reality and a profound level of spiritual development. It will translate into a sense of security, self-expression, manifestation of dreams and a sense of fulfillment in life. If you feel you are ready – check out how to work with this chakra.
1. Surround yourself with the color dark blue, sapphire
