GrapesWant more inspiration on what path you should take in life? Want to increase your intuition about which foods will balance your chakras and balance your life?

The Third Eye Chakra, the 6th chakra, gives us insight, premonitions, psychic abilities. Through the Third Eye Chakra you may connect to the higher self to seek and receive inner guidance. Your psychic and telepathic abilities may become heightened, and you’ll be able to trust your inner wisdom.

Signs of an unbalanced Third Eye Chakra include emotional or mental issues such as fuzzy thinking or confusion, or physical issues such as headaches, sinusitis, vision problems, nightmares, and anxiety disorders. Addictions to foods, and issues with weight, can be directly related to the Third Eye Chakra, especially when we’re addicted to foods that stimulate the brain with sugar and caffeine, such as colas and chocolate.

When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced, we have an ability to think clearly, trust our inner wisdom and have a healthy reliance on our intuitive powers.

Third Eye Chakra balance is intimately tied into the health of the pineal gland, which controls our entire hormonal system. It also oversees the brain, and is directly linked to our moods through our thoughts and working of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. If you overeat or make poor food choices when you’re over-stressed or in a bad mood, you’ll want to seek other ways to soothe yourself such as yoga and meditation.

Kneeling yoga mudraYoga Poses for the Third Eye Chakra:

Add the Bridge pose to your yoga repertoire to balance the Third Eye Chakra, as well as Kneeling Yoga Mudra to unite the head and heart and bring a fresh supply of oxygen-carrying blood to the brain. Kneeling down, clasp the hands behind you as you touch your chin toward your chest, bending at the waist and leaning forward until your head touches the floor.

Sitting up, also try the Bumble Bee Breath, inhaling deeply then exhaling with your lips vibrating with the sound “hmmmmmmmm.”

Third Eye Chakra Visualization:

Breathe in the color indigo, a very dark blue, into the center of your forehead. Here we return to the magic of childhood, to unlimited possibilities, to skills we have always had but which were pushed out of sight. Awaken and clarify your inner vision to have a clear picture of what you want your life to be. Also awaken to a different kind of seeing, clairvoyance or clear sight, that allows you to look inside and beyond the limits of time and space.

Foods, especially that share colors with the chakras, carry vibrations that can activate or balance your chakras…

Third Eye Chakra Healing Foods: The Third Eye Chakra vibrates to the color indigo, a dark purplish blue. Purple foods such as grapes, blueberries, blackberries and raisins not only resonate with a similar color, but they contain antioxidants known as anthocyanidins that protect the brain and nervous system from stress. Red wine, in moderation, is touted for its health benefits. Other purple foods that nourish the Third Eye Chakra include eggplant, purple cabbage, purple kale, purple potatoes or sweet potatoes, as well as all types of stimulating spices.

Chocolate, unless you’re a sugar addict (which is more common than you might think) can help revive a brain taxed by overthinking or overuse of psychic skills – savor a small piece of dark chocolate, chewing it slowly and consciously, for best effect.

Third Eye Chakra Healing Activities:

Meditating for a few minutes before eating is wonderful to clear your mind and let your intuition guide your food choices. When I suffered from heavy menstrual bleeding, I found myself reaching over to eat a bite of my partner’s steak. He was shocked, as I had been a vegetarian for years. But my inner wisdom aimed my fork toward what my body needed, until I could address the cause of the heavy bleeding.

Practice using your intuition when food shopping – what food or drinks call out to you? If you find yourself craving a particular food too often, check your nutritional needs in case your body is giving you a signal you need to pay attention to. In case you have food sensitivities, keep a food journal to watch how your mind and body react after eating certain foods. Do you get fatigued, depressed, or have any physical aches and pains?

When we balance our chakras, we craft our lives the way we want them to be, rather than living in constant reaction to forces outside of us. These spirals of energy are wheels that heal, feeding the body good energy and profoundly affecting our metabolism, as well as emotions, sensations and behaviors.
