Maintaining a healthy brow chakra

Posted on Jul 9, 2010 in Healing

This chakra is situated in the centre of the forehead, just above eye level, and is often referred to as the third eye. Here is where your intuition, insight and psychic perception sits, allowing you to see beyond the physical world and transcend space and time. Clairvoyants and psychics all have a highly developed brow chakra. In a way, this is not dissimilar to ordinary seeing since it has been scientifically proved that it is not really our eyes that see, but our minds. The eyes are merely focal lenses that transcribe the information they receive into electrical impulses which are sent to the brain – the brain then has to interpret that information.

Because of its proximity to the pineal gland which acts as a light meter for the body, the brow chakra is particularly sensitive to light and colour (which is the form through which we perceive light). You can perform powerful self-healing by using your third eye to visualise an appropriate colour radiating through your body and aura. Problems associated with this chakra reflect its connection with the eyes, so eye strain and blurry vision are all signs of a malfunctioning brow chakra, as well as headaches and nightmares. If you feel dull, unimaginative and uninspired, that could also mean your brow chakra would benefit from some attention.

Boosting your brow chakra

As this is the chakra of light, try and expose yourself to as much natural sunlight as you can. If you would normally spend most of your time inside or under artificial light, make a point of going outside more or using special lamps or bulbs that simulate natural light. Notice what a difference this makes to the way you feel.

Wear something indigo

Indigo (a deep blue/purple) is the colour of the brow chakra, so wearing it will help to put you in touch with its imaginative and intuitive energy. If indigo doesn’t suit you, try carrying a crystal, such as amethyst, purple fluorite or star sapphire.

Use your imagination

Any imaginative activity like writing, painting or just daydreaming will also exercise your brow chakra. Practice the technique of visualisation, which at first can be very practical. Close your eyes and try to conjure up in your mind a picture of your partner or another loved one. See how clearly you can focus them in your mind, mentally walk all round them and view them from every angle. Now, if you can do this then you’re just as capable of visualising something that you’d like to happen or have which will enable it to manifest much more easily. For example, if you’re looking for a new job, visualise yourself in your chosen workplace, happy and successful. If you visualise something being completed before you start, it’s likely to happen much more quickly!

Practice meditation

This is the most simple and useful exercise for strengthening the third eye. A good way to start, since a modern complaint is an overactive and impossibly chatty mind, is to simply close your eyes and imagine you’re clearing the screen of your mind until its blank. You may want to add some visualisation technique to help you with this, such as a picturing a blackboard being rubbed clean or a computer screen being cleared! Later, you can choose to meditate on particular colours, objects or ideas. Don’t censor or try to analyse what you see or feel too much, and always make a note of your experiences after each meditation.
