Understanding Chakras - Brow Chakra
Your chakras are seven rotating points of energy on your body. The energy field given off by these seven points collectively makes up your aura.
Your third eye or brow chakra is located on your forehead between your two eyes. Stimulate this point manually by rubbing in the center of your eyes just above the bridge of your nose.
The corresponding color for the brow chakra is indigo, which is a very dark blue almost purple type of color. And the symbol for the third eye is as follows.
The planetary association is Jupiter and the element associated to the third eye chakra is light. Additional astrological references include Uranus, Mercury, Neptune and the signs of Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces.
Your third eye chakra governs issues to do with vision and intuition. This includes your imagination, the ability to see your life clearly, and the use of your mind or intellect as regards intelligence and abstraction.
The challenge that lies in this chakra lies in pride and the ability to make judgments. Spiritual lessons include the ability to relate to insight and intuition and see beyond the visible.
This chakra also governs issues to do with your dreams, both dreams in your life and the physical dreams and nightmares you have while sleeping, as well as your intuitive and psychic ability.
Organs affected include the brain, nervous system, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, face, and the pineal and pituitary glands.
Affirmations used with this chakra include, "I experience beyond my five senses and I envision a positive future for myself."
The years governed by the third eye chakra start on your 35th birthday where you establish the foundation of your vision.
After that you get more creative and begin to explore your vision, trying on different ideas for size.
Eventually in the 37th year we come to the personal power of vision - How does your vision impact the big picture and the world around you?
In the heart year of vision you begin to look at what your intention is - What do you really want?
When it comes to the voice of vision, you begin expressing your vision and finding ways that you can put this vision into action and make it a reality in your world.
After the time spent unpacking your vision and what it means, you now begin to form the real big picture going forward.
And in the final soul year, you establish the framework and foundation for the rest of your life going forward.
Imbalances in the third eye chakra will impact you on a number of levels. You may experience hallucination, nightmares, obsessions, delusions, difficulty concentrating, headaches.
You may experience poor vision and memory, insensitivity, lack of imagination, difficulty visualizing, difficulty seeing the future, problems remembering dreams and detail.
On the physical level, you may experience headaches, eye and ear diseases, nose and sinus problems, facial nerve problems, nightmares, brain tumors, strokes, neurological disturbances, seizures, full spinal difficulties, as well as learning disabilities.
Traumas and abuses include frightening environments and invalidation of spiritual and psychic occurrences.
When your third eye chakra is balanced, you will experience being intuitive, perceptive, imaginative, having a good memory, the ability to visualize, the ability to think clearly as well as symbolically, and you will experience the ability to remember your dreams clearly.
People who have very good third eye chakras will find that they can take the ideas that they have and express them to people clearly because they've taken the time to be able to understand these ideas for themselves.
