Why clear the third eye chakra? The 6th chakra is associated with intuition and wisdom. It is also responsible for your sense of identity and community.
When balanced, you tend to make accurate intuitive decisions and evaluations about your career, family and the intentions of other people.
You often have clear sense of direction in everything that you do. When imbalanced, you may be indecisive, uncommitted and unconfident of the decisions you end up making.
Did you know our body actually has over 70,000 chakras? Each time our meridians (nadis) cross, that junction is called a chakra.
Seven main chakras make up our energetic system. The 7 main chakras are energetic centers located at the endocrine glands.
Overall, when your chakras are balanced, energy is able to freely flow through your energetic system. This leads to a greater sense of peace and wellness.
Having balanced chakras impacts your aura, or energetic field. A balanced aura will allow you to attract positive results.
Negative thoughts, feelings, foods, and inaction can adversely influence the chakras, thus our energetic health. The long term effects could lead to mental, emotional, and physical imbalances, density, or blocks in the chakras.
An individual with physical imbalances in a specific area may also reflect the imbalanced qualities associated with the connecting chakra. In a Reiki session, the energetic centers are being balanced. By balancing these centers, the physical body would also be addressed.
Reiki energy flows to the place in the body that is imbalanced and requires healing. Placing your hands on or above the specific chakra during Reiki self-care allows the energy to be drawn in. Healing Reiki energy will then go where it is needed.
Healing yourself first is the starting point for personal development and self-discovery. Reiki is not only a tool for healing, it also brings protection and personal transformation.
In addition to Reiki self-treatment, there are numerous ways to balance and cleanse your third eye chakra. This includes eating foods associated with the color of the chakra and practicing yoga where particular poses help to open up the chakra.
In addition, journaling to reflect on areas of your life that may require shifts is also important in balancing the chakra.
Just like maintaining a clean home and work environment, the third eye chakra needs to be maintained regularly too.
Here are 5 simple and effective ways to balance your third eye chakra:
- Visualization exercises: Close your eyes and imagine yourself doing something you love to do and allow yourself to daydream about yourself doing what makes you happy.
- Keep a dream journal next to your bed. As soon as you’re awake, jot down the key images you saw in your dreams.
- Wear indigo, the color associated with the third eye chakra, to open up your intuitive channel.
- Yoga exercises: meditating, archer pose, all exercises where the foreheads rests on the floor
- Journal prompt: Are you judgmental? Are there beliefs that you would like to change for yourself?
Remember, setting your intention matters. Before doing any of the activities, set your intention. For example, you might set the intention to balance your third eye chakra and to develop razor sharp intuition.
May you start making clear decisions and doing more of what you love each day forward!
