The Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye Chakra

Today we’ll be looking at the Third Eye Chakra as we continue our exploration of the 7 main energy centers in the human body. This powerful energy point is centered on the forehead between the eyebrows, and it relates to the pineal gland which is directly behind this point in the brain. The Third Eye Chakra is responsible for activating our intuition, helping us enter into creative visualization states, allowing us to hypothesize and pretend, and allowing us to pull dreams from the higher mind into our everyday reality.


The color of the Third Eye Chakra is generally accepted to be indigo or purple. This color relates to spirituality in many traditions and it is a deeply activating color that can help open up our psychic and intuitive abilities. Indigo is a color that is calming and empowering at the same time – a type of ‘middle path’ between mental and physical energies.


Everyone is intuitive, but some people have cultivated their abilities more than others. The Third Eye Chakra is the space where our intuition is able to speak to us in images, feelings, thoughts, or senses. When balanced, the third eye will activate and give us a flash of insight or wisdom when we need it most. It happens to be located very close to the visual cortex of the brain – and even though the third eye is a blind eye, the is in fact a deep type of spiritual vision that happens here.


The Third Eye Chakra allows us to take the things we imagine, visualize, and wish for ourselves and bring it into reality. The third eye point is between the crown of the head where thoughts and dreams happen and the throat center where we ‘speak’ things into reality. This point is essential for manifesting what we want in life.

Imbalance In The Third Eye Chakra

When our Third Eye Chakra is imbalanced, we may feel that we have no intuition, we show up at the wrong place or the wrong time a lot, we get involved with the wrong people, or we miss opportunities. We can also have a hard time creating good things in our lives when this energy center isn’t operating at a healthy level.

Easy Third Eye Healing Exercise

To cleanse, charge, and empower your Third Eye Chakra try this simple exercise…

Start by imagining a deep indigo color saturating the third eye point area. Feel the depth, weight, and power of the color.

Next, begin to breathe naturally but deeply and try to imagine that you are actually drawing your breath in through your third eye and exhaling from that point as well.

Feel the third eye point as it begins to open, pulsate, and tingle. You will have your own experience of the process, but you should feel something.

Practice this daily until you feel that your third eye energy center is open and active. At that point, you can start doing creative visualization, meditation, and active dreaming to really put it into action!
