Third Eye and a New Perspective
Friday’s focus is on the Third Eye also known as the Brow Chakra. As we move into the weekend there is a shift in perspective. The work and school week are almost done. Now we can focus on other activities.
The third eye chakra is located on the forehead. It relates to intuition and inner knowing, which isn’t just for psychics and mystics. We use our intuition is ordinary ways. It’s when we stop listening to that inner guidance that we seem to get into trouble!
This brow centre connects with the Pineal Gland in our brain. It regulates the production of melatonin as one of its many functions. This hormone regulates more than just the sleep and awake cycle. It helps with PMS, thyroid function and cancer prevention. The Third Eye is also connected to headaches and migraines, especially when it is overactive.
Connecting with Chakra:
Working with the intuitive centre of the Third Eye lets you focus and trust what guides you. Meditation is the most popular and effective method to connect.
It helps if you learn to trust what you are seeing, hearing and feeling. Listen to that inner voice as it guides you. If you have trouble with this, ask yourself a few questions:
- What am I avoiding by not listening to my inner guidance?
- Did I have any past experiences where my intuition failed me?
We tend to expect things to happen in a certain way. When they don’t, we think we failed.
- Am I open to things happening in alternative ways?
New doors of opportunity open when we rely less on the way it needs to happen. Focus on the outcome instead.
Day of the week Chakra Reflection:
Crystal energy is the easiest way to connect with the subtle vibrations of the Third Eye Chakra. A purple crystal works well for this centre. Try meditating with a crystal.
Amethyst, which is a type of quartz, is a popular crystal for the Third Eye. It varies from light to dark purple, depending on where it was discovered. Amethyst brings a calm and serene quality to meditation. It helps to alleviate headache symptoms. In ancient times, Amethyst was used to reduce drunkenness. But don’t rely on that if you are out partying tonight!
Purple Fluorite is helpful in releasing negativity and promoting mental clarity. The fluorite crystal is softer than Amethyst. This makes it more gentle to Third Eye energy. Place it by your bedside to promote a good night’s sleep. Hold it while you meditate to help bring innovative ideas and clarity.
