Ingenious Indigo Third Eye Chakra

Ingenious, as in cleverly resourceful, describes our indigo  vortex of swirling POTENTIAL energy. Energy to see beyond the evident, to visualize the bigger picture if we have the intention of keeping the energy flowing and practice using the potential inherent within.

Our third-eye, also known as the Brow Chakra, is a main point for external life energy (prana, chi) to enter and be distributed to the other chakras. It is also a key to ongoing spiritual development. Thus, keeping it as clear and balanced as possible is your ingenuity at work.

As humans we are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us, the more alive and contented and effective we become.

Access to the universal energies and good physical and mental health is through meditation and intention.

Intentions such as:

“My mind is clear and agile.”
“I envision and create beauty and goodness.”
“My imagination is vivid and powerful.”
“I am open to the wisdom within me.”
“I am open to greater and greater spiritual awareness.”

CRYSTALS: Azurite has long been used to guide psychic development and increase metaphysical powers. It raises consciousness to the highest level, facilitates a meditative channeling state, urges the soul toward enlightenment, and controls spiritual unfoldment. A powerful healing stone and energy conduit, Azurite challenges your view of reality, releasing programmed belief systems so that you move into the unknown without fear. Drawing out emotional debris and ancient fears, and given your intentions, cleanses the emotional body and brings about inner peace.

AROMAS: Clary Sage  an oil all about “clarity”, giving you the ability to see clearly what is muddled, or to look ahead with vision and clarity at the possibilities.

Because Clary Sage oil is an aide in eliminating confusion and illusion, it’s often used on the brow and during meditation, contemplation, or creative work. It can help us see possibilities that we struggle to find when we’re lost in our own heads or thoughts and need to tap into something deeper, and, given intention, can bring light to dark places we’re struggling to move through. It helps us to open ourselves to intuition and inner wisdom to be guided by an understanding that is both deeper within and further beyond us.

MEDITATIONS:Put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.
Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows.
Chant the sound OM or AUM.

Now spend as long as you desire in COMPLETE SILENT MEDITATION

YOGA:build awareness in your ajna chakra to begin to see everything in your life more clearly.
start by doing an awakening exercise for the ajna chakra. Take a comfortable seat. Softly close your eyes. Turn your gaze gently to your third eye, or the space between your eyebrows. Bring your hands to a prayer position and begin rubbing them together vigorously.

Once you have created a good amount of heat between your palms, cup them over your eyes. Let the eyes absorb the heat. Feel the heat soften any tension in or around the eyes. Repeat this process 3 times pausing to feel between each round.

Set Your Ajna Intention
Now set your intention for this practice. To grease the wheels, here are some themes that relate to the sixth chakra: Unlocking intuition; improving correct perception; seeing that you are connected to everyone and everything; inviting third eye wisdom to light your way. Feel free to use any of these or choose your own. As long as your intention feels true for you it has value.

Dolphin Plank
Come onto your hands and knees. Bring your elbows to the floor directly under your shoulders and bring your hands to Prayer (Anjali Mudra). Step the feet back as you straighten your legs behind you. The only points of contact with the floor are the balls of the feet and the forearms. Make your legs super strong, engage your belly and pull your front ribs in and up to widen the low back. This is a challenging pose, stick with it! Imagine the prayer hands and the third eye are connected by an invisible stream. That stream is your intention. Stay laser-focused on it for 5–10 breaths. Let your resolve to attach to something worthy of your attention make you strong. When you release the pose, rest on your belly.

Eagle Pose
Garudasana
From standing bend your knees. Lift your right knee and stack it on top of your left. Then wrap your right foot behind your left shin if possible. Bring your arms to shoulder height and stack your left elbow on top of your right, wrapping the right hand into the left. Keep elbows bent at 90 degrees. Balance here bringing your hips down low. Encourage your knees to move toward the midline instead of skewing to one side. The word “garuda” means to devour. Let this pose devour ego, doubt, and fear, clearing the way for loving intention. Spend 5 breaths on this side and then switch.

image

Warrior III Pose
Virabhadrasana III
From standing with arms by your side, engage your legs and begin to tip the pelvis forward. Send your left leg straight back and up until it is parallel to the floor. Extend the spine and head forward also keeping the upper body parallel to the floor. There should be plum line from the head to the left toes. Reach your arms straight back and firm the triceps. Lift your low belly to widen the low back and stand here strong and balanced. Connect with the third eye center and realize that the more we connect to everyone and everything, the easier it is for us to remain balanced even in the least stable conditions. Stay here for 5 breaths, soft but strong.

image

Dolphin Pose
This pose is similar to Downward-Facing Dog except its done on the forearms. Begin on your hands and knees. Place your elbows directly under your shoulders and bring your hands to anjali mudra as you did in Dolphin Plank. Tuck your toes and lift your hips up and back as you straighten your legs. Feet should be about hip-width apart. Firm your shoulder blades into the ribs and lift the shoulders away from the ears to free your neck. Walk your feet in a little closer to your arms, bring the thumbs of your prayer mudra to the third eye. Spend 3 breaths here, bringing all of your attention to the third eye center.

image

Child’s Pose
Balasana
Time to rest! From hands and knees, ease the sitbones back onto the heels into Child’s Pose. Gently rest your forehead on the earth, reach your arms forward and take 5 slow breaths. Let the gentle pressure on the third eye sink you deeper into a meditative and insightful repose. Allow your whole body to release deeply.

Third Eye FRIDAY

 

We are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The  cleaner our energy vortexes (Chakras) the better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us and the more alive and contented and effective we become.

The SIXTH chakra is the BROW, also known as the Third Eye and is located between our brows. Our psychic abilities and imagination are associated with the chakra. Being in the flow of life is a main function of this chakra.

Symptoms of imbalances caused by negativity include headaches, blurred vision, sinus issues, moodiness, volatility, and an inability to look at ones own fears, or to learn from others. 

      When this chakra is balanced we feel clear, focused, and can determine between truth and illusion. We are open to receiving wisdom and insight.

CRYSTALS:  Blue Kynite crystals  relate to the Third-Eye chakra. These can be placed on the body, kept close by or worn as jewelry to help activate, heal and balance the chakra. Crystals are highly sensitive to absorbing energy and feelings, and are therefore excellent in assisting the energy flow of the chakras. The crystals for each chakra are usually chosen for their colour and their metaphysical properties. Indigo Kyanite exudes energies that particularly stimulate the pineal gland and may activate dormant psychic abilities.   Although this stone is a high vibration crystal, it is more gentle in its vibration. You may choose to use any color of Kyanite first, before you use the specific chakra stones. Using Kyanite will bring all of the chakras into alignment.   This will assist in the general flow of energy throughout the body. It will also bridge any energy gaps which may have been caused by any form of accident or from surgery you may have had.  Repeat an intention such as “My mind is clear and agile.” and “I am open to the wisdom within me.”

AROMAS:   Frankincense EO is known to ease depression and mental anxiety. It has a warming, soothing effect on the mind so empower it with your intentions. It releases tensions and nervousness and allows for a deeper more calming breath to enter the lungs. This oil also has a psychoactive chemical called trahydrocannabinole which is known to expand consciousness, hence is widely used in meditation. 

          Frankincense resonates the 6th chakra which awakens higher consciousness and brings in the power of inner vision and intuition. It aligns the solar plexus chakra with the third eye to bring illumination and understanding of intellectual matters to a more enlightened awareness. It also allows for connection to the godhead, bringing in a higher frequency of integration throughout the chakra system.

MEDITATION:        Seeing clearly is usually difficult only because of fears and traumas that get in the way. And until you know what you’re afraid to see, the blockages remain. In every case, each and every one of us is intuitive by nature, even if we don’t believe it. It is only subconscious programs and negative energy that block our ability to connect with our intuition. The more we clear out of the Third Eye Chakra energy space and practice using our intuition, the more clearly we see in every way. It’s truly a gift to be able to call upon our own guidance through this life, as we can see the way to navigate through the waters of this sea that we call life on Earth. We don’t have to continue on blindfolded and limited by our five senses. There is so much more available to us if we will only “see” it.

intellect, intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight are available to everyone — but few of us even begin to tap our profound potential. Clearing and balancing your sixth chakra can help you tap into these vast capacities.

Put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.
Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows.
Chant the sound OM or AUM.

YOGA:

The life lesson for the sixth chakra is developing the ability to trust your intuition. You replace ignorance of oneself with surrender to divine guidance. You understand that you are one drop in the ocean; you are part of the whole. Your intuition is guided by your spiritual eye—the third eye, located between the eyebrows.

Pose
While in Child’s Pose, feel your third eye touching the floor and breathe into it, feeling centered and clear. Be brave. Connect with and listen to your intuition while in the pose.

I am connected to my intuition.

Thunderbolt Pose, VajrasanA-thunderbolt pose for third eye chakra balancing; imageThis super vacuum cleaner weapon is used to get rid of our most powerful enemy – the one within – our inner critic and our judgments that make us feel not good enough.

The power of this pose is observation. It is by observing thoughts and not engaging with them further that we can be released from the grip of these thoughts.
We know from quantum physics that observation impacts that which is being observed. When we simply observe in this pose, we are becoming whole again.

Sit on your heels with your spine straight and your knees about hip with apart. Rest your palms on your thighs. You can place a towel underneath your buttocks if your knees feel uncomfortable.
With your spine straight release all your weight down through your sit bones.
Breathe in and out through your nose.
Allow your spine to lengthen upwards and your shoulders release and widen.
Allow your gaze to gently rest on the floor about 4 feet in front of you.
Continue breathing and observe your thoughts. Watch them like clouds on a sunny day passing you by. Do not become engaged with the thoughts, just allow them to pass by.
With this pose, you are cultivating “witness” consciousness or being the “detached observer”. You do not engage with your thoughts, you simply allow them to pass by as if you were watching clouds drift away on a sunny day.
The effects of cultivating this ability to observe your thoughts and not be engaged in the story, are amazing. You will find having more compassion for yourself, you will begin to see patterns of behavior that do not serve you and you will be able to gradually change these patterns. You will experience greater unity with others and the world around you. You will experience greater peace, inner knowing, and joy.

 

See YA LATER:  OSHO, Chapter 4: The Transformative Power of Idols:…tells of the ’tilak’, and that the science of yoga has found the third-eye, which is between the two eyebrows, to have great power stored in it-it is a great transmitter.  If you ask someone to do something, and you feel they may refuse, you can  conduct a small experiment.  If you concentrate your energy on the center between your two eyes and tell them what you want them to do, nine times out of ten they will do it.  But if you ask them without concentrating your energy that way, nine times out of ten they will not.  Any idea or thought conveyed with the energy concentrated between the two eyes moves rapidly, and carries with it great power.”

Sounds like fun experiment for today.

Friday BROW CHAKRA

FRIDAY resonates with the SIXTH chakra — the BROW, also known as the Third Eye located between and above your two eyebrows. Your psychic abilities and imagination are associated with the chakra. Being in the flow of life is a main function of this chakra.

The BROW chakra vibrates to the key of A and is associated with the color INDIGO/VIOLET. It is pretty much in control of our pituitary  and pineal glands as well as eyesight.

The pituitary gland is a pea-sized structure located at the base of the brain, just below the hypothalamus, to which it is attached via nerve fibers. It is part of the endocrine system and produces critical hormones, which are chemical substances that  control various bodily functions.

The Pineal gland, another of the endocrine system organs, is located deep in the center of the brain and was once known as the “third eye.” (story on recent discovery of an actual third eye that I will share one day). The pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps maintain circadian rhythm and regulate reproductive hormones.

Energize your pineal gland, which controls your body’s biorhythms and works with your pituitary & hypothalamus to direct activities such as thirst, hunger, sexual desire, and your biological clock

This chakra is a spinning vortex of biophysical energy or “Wheel of Light” that absorbs and transmits universal energy in and out of our  body. Not only does it represents  the pituitary and pineal gland but sub-conscious and conscious states of mind as well.

The chakra system is an integral part in maintaining the overall health and well being of the mind, body and spirit, balancing our “Prana” or “Life Force”.       The reason this matters is because our emotions affect  the vibrations and energy of the chakras and therefore of the bodily functions.

When this chakra is balanced we feel clear, focused, and can determine between truth and illusion. We are open to receiving wisdom and insight.   Negative feelings and emotions put your chakras off their game. Mostly, these are related to low self-esteem!
It is believed that each of the chakras absorb and filters the energy that we emit through our thoughts and actions as well as through the thoughts and actions of all those that we come into contact with. When one of the chakras is out of balance as a result of negative energy flowing through it, it begins to spin too slowly or too fast. When a chakra is not balanced, it can effect that physical region of the body and also effect very specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.   So chose positive people and think positive thoughts for your health and, as Thich Nhat Hanh would say, “for the health of the world”.

Carrot Seed oil harmonizes the subtle, or spiritual body with the physical body, allowing us to stay present on the physical plane of existence while experiencing visions and spiritual insights.  Repeat your intentions as you inhale the fragrance.

Concentrate on your indigo colored energy field circulating between your brows and on your intention to SEE the big picture  and to create goodness and beauty as you hold this position.

Come down on the floor and kneel on all fours with your back flat.
Walk your hands farther forward, your palms flat on the floor. Spread your fingers and establish firm contact with the floor.
Exhale and lift your tailbone straightening your legs and keeping your feet flat on the floor. Lengthen your tailbone away from the pelvis. Keep lifting your sit bones towards the ceiling.
Strengthen your knees, but make sure you do not lock them.
Your hands and arms are straight, keep firm contact with the floor, pressing your palms into the mat.
Downward facing dog is a wonderful pose to calm the mind and energize the whole body. You can stay in this pose for 1-3 minutes focusing on your insightful third eye.

Come down  onto our knees, put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.

Chant the sound OM or AUM.Be still, sit quietly and pay attention only to your breathing letting all thoughts of the mind drift away like clouds.  As your awareness goes deeper inner treasures  of the real you become apparent. Meditation simply enables us to connect to them.

finished the yoga exercises with Child’s Pose,  connecting your ‘third eye’ center with the energy of the Earth.

SEE YA Later thoughts with LOVE:

Through your day, when ere you think of it,  hum  ‘La’ on the ‘Sound of Music’ scale or chant “OM” while thinking on your third eye swirling in indigo. Feel the vibration.

For more vibration you can either use a singing bowl or any other instrument to have a continuous vibration at a specific frequency;

Essentially, when you sing or chant each note, you want to hold that note until you physically feel a resonance in your throat; if you’re highly attuned to your body, you may feel the resonance in other parts of your body as well, but if you don’t, it’s still there, doing its job.

Visualize the sound frequencies vibrating in the chakra, clearing out any blockages much like ultrasound therapy breaks up crystals in the gallbladder or urinary tract. It’s really the same concept, except that the blockages you are dealing with in the chakras are not of a physical nature.

Use the Indigo colors  in your home, and in your wardrobe – in fact, create a symphony of color and sound within you, allowing the frequencies to mesh and harmonize.

Imagine your happy sparkly visionary day SEEING and creating BEAUTY and GOODNESS

Relish the visionary indigo glow of your third-eye’s insight.  Stay POSITIVE.

Namaste,
