The Sixth Chakra is the Third Eye. The Third Eye is represented by the color indigo or purple and is our essence of our intuition. The Third Eye corresponds to the astrological signs of Leo and Cancer. The Third Eye helps us to really see; it is our true awareness of self and the world around us. The Third Eye is located between the eyebrows and connects to our cosmic insight. It is physically represented by our pineal gland and represents the forehead area. When our Third Eye is in balance we are aware of the voice within us that is guiding us, we feel connected to our intuition or “gut feeling”, we are able to have an awareness beyond the mind. When balanced we feel focused, open, and connected to a higher self. When out of balance we may experience symptoms such as vertigo, lack of memory, inability to visualize, lack of focus or attention span, feeling disconnected, lack of trust, lack of awareness beyond the physical, headaches, pineal gland issues, feeling ungrounded, lack of connection to reality, and being lost in daydreaming.
So how do we find a balance between our higher self and the groundedness to keep us within the world? Incorporating foods such as figs, chaga mushroom, reishi mushroom, grapes, eggplant, blackberries, purple potatoes and yams, purple cabbage, kale, raisins, and herbs such as blue lotus, damiana, butterfly pea flower, and Gotu Kola can help us find the happy medium of this powerful chakra. Working with crystals such as blue lace agate, sapphire, amethyst, azurite, celestite, sodalite and indigo can help us to become more aware to our intuition. Working with the mantra “I see” can allow the subsconscious to release blocks and conditions holding us back from our intuitive guidance system.The Third Eye is associated with light, so utilizing aroma therapy in the form of candles is helpful in allowing you to calm the mind and tune in to your higher awareness. Essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, jasmine, geranium, frankincense, and lemongrass can help calm the mind and bring you back into the awareness of your intuition. The key to allowing us to tune into our Third Eye is slowing down and calming the mind. What better way to relax and allow the higher knowing to come back to you than a relaxing bath with our Third Eye bath bomb containing frankincense and lemongrass and the soothing effects of CBD.
