Where is the Third Eye chakra located? The Third Eye Chakra, also called the Ajna chakra in Sanskrit is located slightly above the middle of the eyebrows in the front of the body. And its back is at the back of the head, in the center.

What is the color of the Third Eye chakra? Indigo, dark blue (darker than the Throat chakra).

What does the Third Eye Chakra chakra help with? It governs the intuition, clairvoyance, wisdom, spiritual insight, visualization, imagination, and also the intellect. A healthy, opened and balanced third eye makes a person work with a balanced brain. That person will not be just “left-brained” or “right-brained”, but will be balanced, and equally good at both the qualities of the brain — the right and the left hemispheres.

What body parts & systems are associated with the Third Eye chakra? Pituitary gland, Pineal gland, eyes, brain.

How do you balance, unblock, heal & clear the Third Eye chakra? There are several things you can do to balance, unblock & heal this chakra.

1. Use crystals like Lapis Lazuli, Azurite, Blue Sapphire, Moldavite, Herkimer Diamonds, Indigo & Blue Kyanite, Amethyst, Sugilite, Turquoise, Purple Charoite, Aqua Aura, Blue Tourmaline.

2. Wear Indigo clothes, surrounding yourself with Indigo or dark Blue decor.

3. Saying affirmations like: “I am powerfully clairvoyant”, “I see Love everywhere”, “I am fearlessly clairvoyant”, “I see my guides and angels”.

4. Aromatherapy with essential oils like Clary Sage, Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Camphor, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Hyacinth, Patchouli, Angelica Root, Marjoram.

5. Get Reiki healing, Reiki healing attunement, or get attuned to Reiki, and/or Kundalini Reiki.

7. Visualize different things. Read this article that has many suggestions & exercises: http://thepurpleflower.com/tips-on-improving-clairvoyance-psychic-senses-series-3/

8. Doing yoga poses like Child Pose (Balasana), Trataka (Steady Gazing), Eagle Pose (Garudasana).

9. Pranayama (yogic breathing technique), especially Bhramari, Anulom Vilom, and Udgeet..

10. Focus and meditate on a Third Eye chakra mandala like this one below:

ThirdEyeDollarphotoclub_40000829

11. Breathe in Indigo or Dark Blue light into your Third eye chakra. This is how you do it: Close your eyes, and when you breathe in, imagine a bright and beautiful Indigo light entering your Third Eye chakra, and brightening and clearing it. Say your affirmations for this chakra along with this exercise.

12. I find visualization most effective for this purpose. Close your eyes, and imagine an Indigo disc where your Third Eye chakra is.  Focus on it for a few seconds, and then start enlarging and brightening this disc so it covers even the back side of the chakra behind your head. Enlarge it to extend out of your body and around it to a diameter of about 2 feet. After that specifically focus on the front part of the third eye chakra which is located in the middle of your eyebrows, and see an Indigo wheel or circle there. Increase it in size, and brightness. The more your focus on this front part of the third eye, the more it will activate. Say in your mind, “My Third Eye chakra is now balanced, opened, and healed”. However, this needs to be done for all the 7 chakras, so they are all balanced. Doing this once or twice a day for all your 7 chakras keeps your chakras balanced, opened, unblocked, and helps you be physically, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually healthy. It also improves your psychic senses.

Next Friday I will write about the Crown Chakra.

I got rid of the stress, and as a result got rid of ill-health as well.

Just like I had suffered from depression for years, I have also suffered from ill-health for a number of years. Most of it I feel was because of stress. I used to be so stressed that I felt like one day my head would burst open like a pressure cooker.

Over the years the depression and the stress manifested many illnesses in me. I was always feeling sick. And I gained a lot of weight as well.

When I finally became pre-diabetic too, my doctor said either I control the weight issues now or I’d develop a full fledged Diabetes.

I worked diligently with diet and exercise, and lost a lot of weight, and my pre-diabetes was gone. But many other problems still remained.

Finally I started to focus only on being happy. And I realized that it was hard because I was forever stressed. I knew that if I could beat depression, I could beat the stress too. So I worked on that.

I gained back a lot of the weight I had lost. But I noticed that I was feeling quite good. I felt healthy. Yes, still very fat, but I felt good. I was really not paying attention to my eating. I have been eating whatever I wanted, and always stopped myself from beating myself up if I ate something not good for me. I focused on enjoying even the junk, guilt-free, stress-free.

Today I went to get all my physical test results. And I thought I’d get a long lecture from my doctor about how I must take care of my diet as my sugar is off the roof….cholesterol is bad….etc etc etc.

BUT…..

She was beaming! All my numbers were EXCELLENT! Without even trying! All I have tried so far was to make sure I wouldn’t get stressed. And just this effort paid off in a BIG way.

Now I even feel motivated to lose the rest of the weight, just because! :D

Moral Of The Story: Get Rid Of Your Stress! :D You’ll be glad you did.

Here is how I got rid of my stress:

1. Regular EFT tapping

2. Vitamin D3 & Omega 3 supplementation

3. Meditation

4. Just re-training my mind to better quality thoughts. It really is not as hard as we make it. After all, Spirit is always stronger than the mind and the body.

Now I’ll add exercise too. And will be slightly more serious about the diet. I need to lose about 60-70 lbs. And I shall do that in a stress free way, because I am totally healthy! No rush…no stress…no problems. :D

So, what do you say? Will you join me and chuck that stress away? It really is easy.
