Meaning of the third eye chakra
The third eye chakra is the sixth of the seven chakras located between the eyebrows.
It’s about living life in alignment with our inner truth. We are connected with higher wisdom and take action based on the guidance we receive through our intuition.
Healing the third eye chakra
When the third eye chakra is out of balance, we feel like life is out of our control. Although that’s what we crave the most. We fear situations where we don’t know the outcome, uncertain situations, and powerlessness when we know things aren’t in our hands.
These fears all stem from a disconnection from our inner knowing. We aren’t open to build the trust that our life naturally unfolds in the way it’s meant to be.
Every challenge is viewed as a huge failure. We tend to make decisions only with our mind, the logical side of us but don’t allow us to feel how we truly feel about the situation.
We do what seems “right” trying to be responsible human beings. That’s how we keep on finding ourselves in life circumstances that might feel safe, but at the same time like something is missing.
We can’t quite put a finger on it, but at times a tiny voice is coming through telling us that this can’t be all to life.
Settling for a safe life is always leaving parts of us unsatisfied. We feel uninspired by our life, we make decisions out of obligation and routine. We live out of routine and not out of conscious alignment with our inner guidance.
There’s a chance for a turning point when we are becoming still and listen to what we truly want.
Letting go of the needs that come from the ego and tune into a deeper part of us that knows the answer to all our yet unasked questions.
Healing takes place when you allow yourself to look at your life without judgment of past decisions.
When you are more driven and excited by the vision you have for your future than remorse over the past.
You can take your power back by using the present moment to make decisions that feel right with your whole being.
I’m sure you’ve had experiences like that, where you just did something because it felt absolutely aligned with the moment, even though it may not made sense for your ego.
Every day you can practice making conscious decisions just by making it a routine to ask yourself whether you truly want this before you say yes or no to something.
Of course, it takes practice to stay true to our yeses and noes. But with time you even want to make bigger changes and feel good in communicating them. You aren’t afraid to make changes in your life because with past smaller achievements you’ve noticed that living in alignment with your inner guidance is improving the quality of your life immensely in all areas.
Signs of imbalance
- You make decisions solely on what seems logical and ignore your gut feelings
- Feeling uninspired à the action you take is rather out of obligation than out of alignment
- Living out of routine, not of conscious decisions
- Not in the flow of life à trying to control every outcome, no trust in the natural unfolding of your life
- Fearing the truth of your life -> becoming aware of what doesn’t work/is not aligned anymore
- Losing concentration easily
- Insomnia, any difficulties in regards to sleep, nightmares
Below, I’ve listed 9 ways to heal your third eye chakra. Go with the themes that resonate most with you.
The characteristics of a healed third eye chakra are that we have faith in the unseen.
The trust in the natural outcome of our lives is bigger than our need to control every piece of it.
We know that behind every setback there’s a higher purpose we’re might not able to see (yet). Oftentimes, the meaning of challenges we face is only presenting itself in hindsight when we’re out of the situation and have the capacity to reflect on it.
We aren’t afraid to look at our life from a higher perspective. Due to the trust in a better outcome for ourselves, we find it easier to let go of things, behavior patterns, situations, and people that aren’t aligned with the vision we have for our lives.
At the same time, we work on ourselves to actually embody the higher self we picture when we visualize our dream life.
We keep on taking action on intuitive hints and deep insights we gained from being an open channel.
Doing so lets us feel that our current life slowly merges with our dream life with every little step we take.
We know that it’s all just about aligning with our inner guidance and act accordingly.
That for sure isn’t always easy. Our intuition oftentimes asks us to do scary things, but nothing is as scary as settling for a life that feels like it’s not ours to live.
Signs of balance
- Having a deep connection with your intuition
- Trusting your intuition -> making life decisions based on your inner knowing
- Awareness of who you truly are behind all the roles and masks
- Not being afraid of the truths your inner voice is telling you

Find a comfortable position. Close your eyes.
Imagine an indigo light circle between your eyebrows.
With each breath you take the circle gets bigger and bigger and the indigo light becomes clearer and brighter.
Grow the circle with your breath until your whole forehead is filled with radiant indigo light.
Hold the circle for a couple of minutes and feel how its light is cleansing the energy in your third eye chakra.
All worries about the future get washed away and are replaced by the deep trust that your life is unfolding into the best possible outcome.

Let the emotions remind you that this is your truth.
