The Third Eye Chakra is where we hone into our intuition and wisdom. Inner vision, wisdom, clairvoyance, dreams, intuition and tapping into your psychic power live here. This chakra allows us to see with our physical eyes then use that to see within.
“Seeing, even in the physical sense, is about more than just looking. It’s about interpreting what we see, about taking the bits of data and recognizing patterns, and where they fit into the larger scheme of things.”
When this chakra is blocked, we lack clarity and the ability to interpret what we see and feel. Or our interpretation becomes skewed or distorted. Our vision becomes unclear and we are unable to manifest what we desire. We begin to see things through the eyes of illusions. This will drive us to act irrationally. Making sure our lower chakras are balanced also directly relates to our lack of clarity. If we don’t feel grounded, loved or worthy then we aren’t able to see beyond the negative.
When this chakra is in full force and activated, it may almost seem like magic. Here is where we manifest our highest desires and dreams. Our truest inner vision will guide us to our path and destiny. Our intuition will speak loud and clear and we will know what choices to make. These choices will come with ease. We will be able to visualize and imagine the life that we aspire to have and will create opportunities that will grant us such.
Doing the work to balance our lower chakras, helps us unblock the Third Eye Chakra. Letting go and connecting to spirit helps us tap into these energies. When this happens, we are able to breathe and be. To see and see beyond. And we are able to trust what we see and manifest our best lives and divine frequencies.
The theme of this Chakra is Visualization and Affirmations. Which is what we do to balance out our other chakras. This further proves that the physical and spiritual bodies are connected and both must be operating at its highest point in order for us to reach a place of ascension.
Here are 3 yoga poses that can help activate the Third Eye Chakra:
1- Virasana (Hero’s Pose)
2- Balasana (Child’s Pose)
3- Ardha Uttanasana (Standing Half Forward Bend)
Notice that these poses are very relaxed poses that do not require much movement. This is because for the Third Eye chakra, you must be still and allow your imagination and intuition to work it’s literal magic.
