It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see -Henry David Thoreau
Associated with the element light and the color indigo blue, the sixth chakra is located between and just above the physical eyes, creating the spiritual third eye. While our two eyes see the material world, our sixth chakra sees beyond the physical. This vision includes clairvoyance, telepathy, intuition, dreaming, imagination, and visualization.
The sixth chakra is involved in both the creation and perception of art and in the recognition that what we see has a powerful impact on us. Even when we’re not aware of it, we’re all sensitive to the images we find in our environment.
When the third eye is excessively abuzz with energy, we experience headaches, hallucinations, nightmares, and difficulty concentrating. When this chakra is deficient, we have a poor memory, experience eye problems, have difficulty recognizing patterns, and can’t visualize well.
Practicing with closed eyes and using visualization supports this chakra. I love using clary sage essential oil for this energy center applied directly to the forehead (clary sage assists individuals in changing perceptions and encourages one to “see” the truth) and amethyst crystal helps to open intuition.
