Each chakra within your energy body is associated with its own colour and each colour holds an energy vibration.
Everything in the universe is comprised of energy, including you! We are all made of energy, the universe is the one source of Divine energy which we are all part of, connected to and that which flows through us. The word ‘Chakra’ derives from the Sanskrit meaning ‘wheel’ and literally translated from Hindi tradition it means ‘wheel of spinning energy’. The 7 major chakras are energy centres that connect your spiritual body to your physical body and are like a whirling vortex of energy, they are your powerhouse of energy that governs your physical body.
3rd EYE or 6th Chakra
Indigo is the colour for the 3rd Eye Chakra which is located at the centre of your forehead, between your eyebrows. Its energy radiates down towards your mouth area and up to the top of your head. Intuition, inner wisdom, knowing and extra sensory perception is invoked by this power centre. The ability to tap into endless possibilities of this life and other life times are stored here. This chakra brings you inner connection when you tap into its energy through meditation and imagination.
Each Chakra is associated with certain organs in the body and this chakra is associated with: Pituitary gland. Influences the sense of inner knowing.
You have a great sense of inner connection and balance between your physical and spiritual reality. The feeling of ‘knowing’ comes from this Divine connection as the 3rd eye visions are subtler than regular visions as your intuition and perception is heightened. You will feel motivated and have inspiration for creativity.
Signs that your 3rd Eye chakra is out of balance:
When there is an imbalance in the 3rd eye energy centre you may experience the feeling of disconnection which can lead to depression. Not feeling connected can make you feel stuck, lost and out of balance with life so that you are unable to see a clear vision of who you are. It seems only natural then to over compensate with interests in psychic activities such as tarot or searching for paranormal experiences to find a connection. The opposite can also be true that there is complete rejection from anything spiritual. Sometimes this can take you away from experiencing life in the physical and we are after all, spiritual beings having a human being experience called life. In the physical you could experience headaches, fatigue and sinus problems.
Ways to restore balance to your 3rd Eye chakra:
Crystals – The colour of the 3rd Eye chakra is Indigo and so these coloured crystals will help to heal and activate the energy. There are great benefits to connecting to crystals and wearing them near the chakra point or even sitting with them in meditation. The 3rd Eye chakra sits between your brows between your Throat and Crown chakras.
The beautiful deep blue/purple that combine these powerful healing stones help to create healing within the 3rd Eye energy centre. The most popular of all healing stones is Amethyst, purple in colour that has varying shades and is a powerful tool to cleanse, stimulate and balance your 3rd Eye.

Other ways to restore balance in the 3rd Eye chakra
As your energy centre that brings vision and clarity with the spiritual realms if you feel this energy centre is blocked or that you are unable to receive communication then allowing yourself quiet solitude with self is important.
Meditation - Focus on your breath and sit in silence bringing your attention to the 3rd Eye area, visualise a blue diamond spinning in the centre of your 3rd Eye and as it spins imagine the energy opening the doorway for you to receive divine information. This will be different for each person as you sit and connect. It takes practice to trust that this is happening and belief that you are a divine being able to communicate with spirit beings of light.
As with all the chakras eating wholesome foods that are the colour of the chakra also help to revitalise the energy centres.
Yoga is excellent for balancing the 3rd Eye along with Reiki, Tai Chi and QiGong.
