What Is “The Third Eye Chakra”?

For the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at the various stones of the world. Their history, the benefits they offer, and the powers it is believed they each have. Many have referenced to “The Third Eye Chakra” as to how they are connected and how they relate.  But do we really know what “The Third Eye Chakra” is?  Let’s look so that we have a better understanding of the stones we have discussed already and the rest of this series.

Chakra: What Is It?

The center of our energy is referred to as Chakra, the openings that energy flow in and out of the aura we have. Their function is to bolster our body physically that allows us to develop our self-consciousness. They are associated with our emotional, mental, and physical interactions.

Chakras have been represented as a funnel that has smaller funnels within it. Their look resembles a lotus flower. Some see individual chakras to be like a fan blade or windmill blade moving in their circular motion.

If Chakra were a fan or windmill, it would have seven blades, each blade a different color and each one having a different function, a different purpose.  Those seven blades represent the following within the human body’s energy:

Brow Chakra (The Third Eye)

Crown Chakra

Heart Chakra

Root Chakra

Sacral Chakra

Solar Plexus Chakra

Throat Chakra

The Third Eye: What Is This?

Now that we have provided an explanation of Chakra and what it is, it will be easier to understand what The Third Eye has to do with the various stones and their Chakra. The 6th Chakra is the Third Eye (first on our list for purpose of this article). It is responsible for our “sixth sense” and is our connection to our internal intuitions. It is what helps us to see into the future by sharpening our senses. With the Third Eye Chakra, we can receive messages with verbal communication, thus communicating with the world. Some say they can see the past. It gives us a sense of observation.

The Third Eye Chakra is represented by purple and is found between our eyes in the center of our forehead. Light is the element of this Chakra which provides it a deep vision from within. The Third Eye Chakra gives us balance and enables us to differentiate between what is real and what isn’t by combining our emotion with logic. When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced, we think clearly, we are focused and we experience good health overall. The healthy Third Eye Chakra encourages our empathy, our intuition, and to trust ourselves.

An Unbalanced Third Eye Chakra

When this Chakra isn’t balanced, we daydream, we lack assertiveness and focus. We are tired because we can’t sleep, thus becoming disoriented. When this Chakra isn’t balanced, we tend to fantasize and hallucinate.

It is important to balance our Third Eye Charka so that we can experience the energy, good health, happiness, and joy. When we have these feelings, we will experience a satisfying life with wealth as a reward, not just financial wealth, but wealth in all aspects.

Because Chakras are influenced by different things like aromas, colors, elements, and gemstones, we can bring balance to our Third Eye Chakra by practicing meditation, using therapeutic aroma by way of essential oils, adding indigo or purple to our wardrobe, and listening to classical music.
