The chakras are the seven main energy channels in the body. Blocked and imbalanced chakras can lead to illness and frustration so it’s important to understand how they work.
Let’s focus on the third eye or Ajna, brow chakra, which represents our ability to focus and see the big picture. It is the sixth violet colored chakra. Ajna is located on the forehead between the eyes and affects intuition, imagination, wisdom, and the ability to make decisions. When we do not listen to our inner guide we become misaligned. The more in tune with our true nature of ourselves we are the more freely the energy moves.
Child’s pose, forward bends, eye exercises, and herbal oil treatment can help heal the third eye chakra. Healing food for this chakra would be purple colored fruits like grapes and blueberries, chocolate, and lavender flavored spices and tea.
The third eye is not only where you see what is going on but you understand it and know what it means. We move from the more material world to the things that we only feel in the mind and heart like consciousness and Self. Being in tune with your Ajna chakra can give you much greater clarity. The third eye helps us see the world around us without separation and illusion. Feeling more connected through this chakra can help you see your deeper meaning in life.
Meditation, visualization, and finding inspiration in your daily life can help you cultivate your Ajna Chakra and live life with balance and clarity.
