Have you ever had a gut feeling that you could not ignore? Have you ever had to make a big, life-altering decision but somehow knew that there was truly only one way forward? If so, these are examples of times that your intuition was steering you along. These feelings and guidance are closely related to the sixth Chakra, also known as the Third Eye Chakra. But, more so, it’s the Universe guiding you towards the highest good, your purpose, your destiny; We all need more of this in our life.
If this isn’t happening for you, and you want to know how to change that, then you are in the right place. This article will help you understand the Third Eye Chakra, recognize the signs of a blockage, and give you valuable and practical tips to get it back into harmony.
Also known as the brow Chakra, the Third Eye Chakra plays many vital roles concerning your perception of the world beyond the physical. In Sanskrit, the Third Eye Chakra is called ‘Anja’, which is translated to the subconscious. In the physical body, it is located between the eyebrows and not the centre of the forehead, which is a common misconception.
The Third Eye represents a state of enlightenment, a Universal guidance, and an ability to see the ‘bigger picture’ outside of the noise you are constantly exposed to in the daily world. It helps you to feel more in tune with the Universe and provides an alignment with your higher purpose. Many people identify this as an inner voice or intuitive energy.

Create New Awareness Through Meditation. Practicing a meditation designed to open the sixth Chakra can have you seeing through your mind’s eye in no time. Setting forth this powerful intention can increase clarity and direction in your life, while also providing a number of health benefits such as reduced stress, increased memory, and improved sleep.

Using a good quality lavender essential oil can reduce tension and headaches, ease worries and anxiety and help to balance emotions. You can use lavender essential oil in a diffuser, in a hot bath or face steam, or mixed with coconut oil as a calming and gentle skin salve. Whatever you enjoy most, be sure to take the time to enjoy the scent and open yourself to your Third Eye Chakra.
Enjoy Eyebright. If the name alone doesn't give it away, surely enjoying a tea aptly named ‘Third Eye Chakra Tea’ will.
