THIRD EYE CHAKRA HEALING PRACTICES
Here are some tips to help you balance your Third Eye Chakra.
1. DECALCIFY YOUR PINEAL GLAND
One of the easiest and most common thing that you can do to help starting a good day and start helping your Pineal glad is to decalcify it. You can do it using and doing small tricks that wouldn’t take a lot of time. On of the easiest tips to is to drink hot chocolate or to add a spoon of organic (sugar-free) cacao powder to your morning coffee ( you will get used to the taste, don’t worry). Another tip is trying to avoid tap water or any kinf of water rich in fluoride. This gland regulates the sleep cycles and reproductive hormones. For the more mystical among us, the Pineal gland is also called the spiritual consciousness.
We all know that mindfulness is becoming a common practise to reduce stress. So guess what, mindfulness meditation is also beneficial to our third eye. Focusing on our breath and burn the bridges with our thought (even the smallest ones) is the one of the most effective ways… Try not to have an important appointment after your meditation so that you won’t feel any pressure. Give yourself the time you need!
3. Use the spiritual Chakra Chants
The sound ‘OM’ corresponds to the third eye. Chanting OM at the beginning, during or even after a meditation. Helps us diminish the blockages that could have happened to our third eye. Simply chant ‘OMMMMMMMMMMMM’ and give your imagination the freedom to go whatever it wants to go.
4. Ground yourself
Even thought grounding yourself is most of the times associated with the feeling of being safe and solid. Grounding yourself could be also beneficial for our third eye. While grounding yourself as well, try to avoid any other thought related to the physical life. And then again give your third eye the lead! Let your third eye take you new places…
5. Go for a walk in nature
Go for a walk with nature, preferably alone in a place where you can be yourself and where you can spend some time by yourself with no other influence. Walk and feel the energy of the nature around you. Don’t hesitate to pause and let your imagination/ third eye guide you. This process can take many days… or many weeks…
6. Use essential oils
Use herbs or essential oils like lavender, clary sage, frankincense, rosemary, basil, and even star anise to help your third eye remaining active and balanced. And the easiest thing to do is go to the grocery shop and get a ‘Third Eye Tea’. Drink it while meditating on your future goals and dreams…
Get yourself in a confortable position and try star-gazing… Don’t be afraid where your third eye and your imagination can take you… Remember to stay open-minded. And please, if you are considering star-gazing, do it in a safe place!!
8. Crystals and stones
Using crystals ans stones is also recommended to work on your Chakras. If you haven’t tried a Chakra massage, I recommend you to get one, but first try to talk with the practitioner and ask him/her about the technique they use and how the massage is going to go.
Crystals like Amethyst, Labradorite, Lapis Lazuli, Kyanite and Shungite are recommended for Third Eye blockages and imbalances.
Loving affirmations are always a good idea. Sometimes they can avoid our brain to take the lead with its toxic thoughts. Try to find or customise your own affirmations. Here are a few examples, “I create my reality,” “I trust my intuition,” “I trust my Third Eye,” “I connect with the wisdom of the divine”.
