7 Chakra Overview: What is Third Eye Chakra?

Welcome back to our chakra learning session. In the previous chapter, we introduced the Throat Chakra, the fifth energy center, the chakra that helps us express our truth. In this video, we will go on to the sixth chakra, the Third Eye Chakra, and share with you the affirmations that help balance it.



The third eye chakra is located between the eyebrows.

Third Eye Chakra – energy center of intuition and psychic ability

The third eye chakra is an instrument to perceive the subtler qualities of reality. It goes beyond the more physical senses into the realm of subtle energies. Awakening your third eye allows you to open up to an intuitive sensibility and inner perception. Sustaining awareness of third eye chakra energy might require focus and the ability to relax into a different way
of seeing.

When we focus our mind and consciousness, we can see beyond the distractions and illusions that stand before us and have more insight to live and create more deeply aligned with our highest good. The third eye chakra is associated with the archetypal dimensions, as well as the realm of spirits.

Connections with our Body and Emotion

The main issue with this chakra is an unwillingness to look within and unearth our fears. Sometimes we fear acknowledging the truth and our reasoning becomes clouded; we fear criticism and other people’s thoughts about us, and we fear our shadow side and its attributes. If this chakra becomes blocked, it can lead to sleep disorders, headaches, nightmares, severe depression, and spiritual arrogance.

Balance your Third Eye Chakra

Meditation is a great way to balance our third eye chakra. With each inhale, imagine a indigo ball of energy growing larger and larger where the third eye is located. With each exhale, release any negativity or blocks that may be associated with your third eye. You may want to listen to our Third Eye healing guided meditation to re-balance your Third Eye Chakra.

Third Eye Chakra and the moon!?

Gazing into the night sky is a simple but awe-inspiring way to put everything in perspective. Staring at the moon and stars tends to open the mind and help you to transcend the cage of thought.


Targeted affirmations are incredibly useful for third eye chakra healing and balancing. You can repeat these positive statements multiple times a day, or anytime you get a sense your chakra might be blocked:

I am in touch with my inner guidance

I listen to my deepest wisdom

I see things clearly on a physical, moral and intuitive level

I’m able to rely on my intuition because I am able to see the world through the eyes of another

I seek to understand and to learn from my life experiences

I only spend time thinking about my dreams and that which will serve my high as good

When our third eye chakra is clean and balanced, we see life with clarity and possess strong intuition, insight, self-awareness, and emotional balance. May the third eye chakra energy be always with you.
