The Third Eye Chakra
What is the Third Eye Chakra and Where is it Located?
The Third Eye Chakra is a luminous indigo or royal blue colored chakra seated about one inch above and between the eyebrows. The Third Eye Chakra is considered the first of the higher chakra systems described as the "seat of the intuition" in the origins of the Sanskrit language. Other energetic translations of the wisdom of the third eye can be understood by meditating on the ideas of sight beyond ordinary perception and the general realms of higher consciousness. Some even view the Third Eye Chakra as a primary receiver of wisdom and higher conscience from the Universe.
What does the Third Eye Chakra Do?
The function of the Third Eye Chakra is to assist us in trusting our intuition. It also functions in helping us learn from our experiences, trust, and connect to the universe, find clarity and peace of mind, and wisely assess any guidance we feel comes from a higher consciousness. Many around the world view the third eye as a gateway to the divine or enlightenment; the Third Eye Chakra is seen as a primary access point to this energy and experience. Activities like astral projection, deep meditation, hypnosis, and channeling can be seen as a strength and function of the Third Eye Chakra - although its influence expresses differently for everyone.

What Are the Signs of a Blocked Third Eye Chakra?
As with any other organ in the body, the Third Eye Chakra can become imbalanced or blocked by many things in our natural environment and within our lives. Circumstances that might block the third eye include feeling misled by your own intuition, discovering an unexpected and uncomfortable truth, or discovering you’ve been betrayed by someone you thought you could trust. Events such as these can make us question our ability to judge and understand the outside world, and this can cause blocks and imbalance or blockage in our Third Eye Chakra.
Symptoms of a blocked Third Eye Chakra may include; an inability to focus, a lack of connection to the world or others, and general confusion about your life direction.

Chakra Healing Meditation for the Third Eye Chakra
Here's a guide on how to perform a cleansing meditation for the Third Eye Chakra:
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can relax without any distractions. Sit in a comfortable position, keeping your spine straight and your palms resting gently on your lap.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, allowing yourself to settle into a state of relaxation. Let go of any tension or stress in your body.
Visualize a deep indigo or purple light in the center of your forehead, at the location of your third eye chakra. Imagine this light growing brighter and more vibrant with each breath you take.
As you focus on the indigo light, envision it penetrating your third eye chakra, cleansing and purifying it. Picture any negative or stagnant energy being released and replaced with clarity and insight.
With each inhale, imagine the indigo light expanding and filling your entire head, activating and balancing your third eye chakra. Feel the energy of this chakra opening and awakening.
Repeat positive affirmations that resonate with the third eye chakra. You can use statements like, "My third eye is clear and intuitive," or "I trust my inner wisdom and guidance."
Stay in this meditative state for as long as it feels comfortable, focusing on the sensations in your forehead and the indigo light. If your mind starts to wander, gently bring your attention back to the visualization and the energy of your third eye.
When you're ready to conclude the meditation, take a few deep breaths, gradually bringing your awareness back to your surroundings. Slowly open your eyes and take a moment to ground yourself.
Regular practice of this cleansing meditation can help balance and strengthen your Third Eye Chakra, heightening your intuition and insight. Embrace the transformative power of your inner vision and embark on a journey of self-discovery and clarity.
