What is the Third Eye Chakra ?

Seven Chakras

In the above image you can see the seven chakras starting from the root chakra at the base and crown chakra on the top of your head. The third eye chakra is the sixth chakra (from the root chakra). It is located on the forehead, between the eyebrows. This chakra is responsible for your intuition, imagination, thought and self awareness. It is associated with the color indigo.

The unique gift of this chakra is seeing both inner and outer worlds. The energy of this chakra allows us to access our inner guidance and see beyond the mind and words. It allows us to examine self-limiting ideas and then challenge the same ideas with our inner wisdom (intuition). This chakra is driven by the principle of openness and imagination.

    Hi Satish,

    I have many friends who practice what you are saying here and they always appear to be very calm and collected individuals. I have practiced meditation multiple times in my life, and I can truly tell a difference in how I feel and my mood. It allows a completely different outlook on the world and the way we react to situations.

    I love that you are sharing such a powerful message. It may sound silly at first to some, but it truly does work.

    Thanks!

    Hi Satish,

    This is definitely an interesting read. Actually, this article is timely as I am currently in some of the predicaments that you listed above and I can draw parallels of meditating to open the 3rd eye chakra to my Christian faith where if I meditate on words in the Bible, I can experience all of the sensations you mentioned above.

    I know, thats a weird parallel to draw upon haha but I can see it. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Satish

      Hi Tyranique,

      The third eye aligns with the wisdom teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. The Third Eye Chakra reminds us to seek and believe in our own inner wisdom. Trust that your inner knowing will guide you with love and kindness. If you are pulled in two directions, listen to your soul and believe in your heart. I wish you all the very best with your meditation practice ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Hello Satish,

    Loved your article, the universe is such a great provider to our lives. I have seen and read many things lately pertaining to our inner energies and the connection to the universe. Your chakra article certainly adds more credibility to that belief, Thank you for the information it will go well with other things related to the subject of centered living that I am aware of, and worth practicing.

    1. Satish

      Hey James,

      Appreciate your comment and glad to know that you enjoyed reading the post. You are right Chakra Meditation does help in living a heart centered life. It is only when all the Chakras are balanced, we truly realize that everything is interconnected and that we are a part of the larger scheme in life. We begin to live life with gratitude, faith and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Hi Satish,

    This is really great information. I have often heard that meditation is good etc etc but until I saw this article, I had never really given it much thought. You explained it in very simple language and the Chakra breakdown was really enjoyable to read and very informative. You have simplified the meditation steps and detailed how to know my third eye is open! Thank you very much for sharing. I will definitely start meditating soon.

    Hey Satish!

    Learning about the third eye has been interesting. You put it all together well. As a Christian I believe that we do have to look inward in order to hear from God. This takes quite, still time with no distractions. Taking deep breathes and allowing myself to relax really helps. I can see that the steps in Chakra can help anyone to accomplish the thoughts they are seeking. Thank you for opening my eyes (pardon the pun) to this method of relaxation and inner seeking.

    1. Satish

      Hi Karen,

      Thanks for your comment and the pun, I am glad you found the post useful. Wishing you all the best with your meditation practice ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  9. Natalie

    Hi Satish,

    I LOVED this post. I’m a massive believer in law of attraction. Visualization is one of the things I struggle with so I guess now I know why. My thinking brain is definitely overactive and at times I struggle to tell the difference between my anxiety and intuition so now hopefully with the tools you’ve given here, I will be able to connect with myself afresh and conquer this. Thanks so much, what a great post!

    1. Satish

      Hi Natalie,

      An open third eye chakra will make you centered on the present moment. When you are focused on the present moment then the chains of anxiety and stress will no longer drag you down and you will experience the bliss of being in the present moment. I suggest you start a regular mediation practice ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Hi Satish,

    I’ve always wondered about these chakras, so thank you for the explanation.

    I’m quite interested in the “law of attraction” aspect. There are many mindset tutorials out there that use this phrase, and I wonder if it started with the third eye chakra?

    I believe that meditation on one’s belief system is important for everyone. And I’m glad you’ve shared yours.

    Cheers,
    Suzanne

      Hi Suzanne,

      One of the benefits of opening the Third Eye Chakra is that you will experience vivid imagination so your thoughts will frequently manifest into realities. You will be able to clearly visualize and have a great imagination. Your conscious mind which is often bound by limitations, will become more in tune with the endless possibilities of reality. Everything will seem to be possible for you and probably the word “impossible” will vanish from your dictionary.

      A regular practice of this meditation will help you in eliminating negative beliefs about self and allows you access to a higher level of understanding ~ Stay Blessed 🙂
