5 Ways to Clear your Third Eye Chakra
Welcome back to this current series of Reiki energy healing blogs!
I am Leila, your online Intuitive Confidence Coach, Reiki Master and Teacher and I love supporting women who are empaths, intuitives, healers, holistic therapists and coaches to fulfil their soul's purpose with unstoppable confidence and ease by clearing out the subconscious and energy obstacles that are in your way around your incredible abilities, making money, having success and maintaining your energy levels and health.
Over this series of blogs, I've been diving in to Reiki healing, energy and the chakras (so far!) and sharing amazingly simple, but profound techniques you can use in your life to support you on your mind, body and spirit journey.
What and where is the third eye chakra?
The third eye chakra is the second to last of the seven chakras within the body. It is located in the centre of your forehead, between the eyebrows, but just above them.
The third eye chakra is powerfully connected to the energy vibrations of intuition and wisdom, clarity, focus and dreams when energy flows through a clear and balanced third eye chakra.
When imbalanced or blocked, the vibration may be one of overthinking, being 'spaced out', forgetful, maybe even lacking trust in your intuition, if you connect with it at all. You may have trouble sleeping, frequent headaches, confusion, lack of purpose in your life.
Five ways to clear your third eye chakra:
Visualisation: In my honest and humble opinion, visualisation is the key to opening, clearing and maintaining a balanced third eye chakra. Think vision, visionary, visual and you've pretty much understood the third eye! Take a few moments to centre and balance yourself, close your eyes and visualise a powerful yet gentle, purple light pulsating and expanding in and around your third eye area. Spend anywhere between 5 and 25 minutes (longer if you like!) here, allowing your third eye chakra to clear and the energy to flow through it, repeating the affirmation I have included at the bottom of this blog!
Crystals: Coloured crystals that match the colour of the third eye chakra (commonly associated with the colour purple/indigo, but I encourage you to tune in and decide for yourself!) will be really powerful, but crystals hold their own powerful vibration that can match and support your chakras to reach the frequency of them. Amethyst is a crystal that vibrates with the energy of universal energy, intuition, the spiritual realms. Meditating with crystals, wearing them as jewellery or popping them in your pocket can really benefit your wellbeing and energy field. Just be sure to cleanse them in the moonlight or sunlight frequently!
Dream journalling: I am a huge fan of journalling anyways, but when it comes to clearing and opening your third eye chakra, journalling offers a powerful insight when you use the technique to write down and explore your dreams. This not only acknowledges your dreams, so you may experience more as your third eye becomes activated, but you may start to see wisdom, messages and guidance that come through your dreams which have been lead by your intuition and your third eye chakra. Exciting!
Food: Alright! Think indigo/purple again! Aubergine, grapes, purple cabbage, purpose carrots (we grew some of these in our garden this year!) and you will be supporting and clearing your third eye chakra in the next possible way!
Community: Search out a few communities, online or offline where you are encouraged to share and awaken your intuitive gifts. My own community, Mind + Body + Spirit = Ultimate Health is one such community-come join us!
Here's a powerful affirmation to support the third eye chakra:
I honour my intuition, I trust my inner wisdom.
