The brow chakra, otherwise known as the third eye chakra, is all about developing your intuition. This chakra is kind of like your spiritual eye, in the sense that it helps you connect with spirit.
If you are not familiar with your chakras, they are the like the energetic system in your body. Your chakras link to different parts of your body, and they are the center of your life force energy or chi.
There are seven main chakras in our body, and they’re shaped like a flower or a wheel, with petals or spokes inside them.
The chakras contain and process energy in your body and just as energy can help you move forward in life, it can also block you. When you are healthy and feeling good mentally and physically, your chakras are bright and clear and they spin smoothly.
When you are stressed or ill or mentally impaired in some way, your chakras get stuck, slowing down or spinning too quickly.
The goal of Working with your Third Eye Chakra is to help you re-balance and clear your energy. Within the seven main chakras, the third eye chakra or the brow chakra, is the center of your intuition.
While the other chakras are certainly important, the third eye chakra is especially important if you have a desire to connect with spirit.
If you have a block in your 6th chakra, the third eye chakra, you may not trust your intuition and you may feel spaced-out or have poor concentration. If this chakra is blocked, you will have a lot of trouble connecting with your sixth sense or your intuition.
The third eye chakra represents your higher mind, your intuition, and your imagination. The physical location of the brow chakra is between the eyebrows and it is related to your intuition and your act of seeing, both physically and intuitively.
When this chakra is healthy it allows you to see clearly, in effect, letting you “see the big picture.” The sixth chakra is associated with the color Indigo.
It’s very simple to activate the third eye chakra. A great way to open up the chakras is to think of them like little spinning balls of energy. To clear your chakras, you can visualize them spinning clockwise, face out from your body.
Your chakras consist of:
- The root chakra located at the base of the spine – its color is red.
- The sacral chakra located at the lower back and abdomen – its color is orange.
- The solar plexus chakra located at the stomach region – its color is yellow.
- The heart chakra located around the heart – its color is green.
- The throat chakra located at the throat – its color is blue.
- The third eye or brow chakra located above and between the eyebrows – its color is indigo.
- The crown chakra located at the top of your head – its color is violet or white.
To open up the brow chakra, simply visualize the area between your eyebrows, as a beautiful spinning ball of energy. Picture the color indigo, spinning until the color is bright and clear.
Try and open up your intuition, and sense or see what this chakra is trying to tell you.
You can also try using crystals or stones, placing them directly on the area between your eyebrows. Amethyst crystals work well with the third eye and they are easy to get. The more you work with the energy in your body, the more open and receptive you will be to spirit.
