Are you having trouble concentrating on your work? Like your mind is easily distracted with other thoughts…

Do you feel like your mind is filled with worries, probably from your constant overthinking?

Or maybe you are having self-doubt as you can’t seem to find the purpose of your life?

A few more self-assessment questions for you:

In the recent past, have you felt like your levels of cynicism or pessimism have been rising? Do you feel like you can’t connect with other people and have become close-minded?

Apart from emotional health, do you have any sleeping problems? Like having a hard time falling asleep, waking up easily at night, constantly having nightmares.

Or experiencing any of the physical problems as the following:

  • tension in the brow area
  • headaches
  • eye strain
  • blurred vision
  • sinus issues
  • hearing problems
  • dizziness

If you have a YES to any of the questions above, you may have issues with your Third Eye Chakra.

But don’t fret because this does not mean that your Third Eye Chakra is blocked permanently. (phew!)

Here comes the good news! You can open your blocked Third Eye Chakra just by following one or more of the simple methods that we will share with you just in a bit.

But first, let’s talk about why opening the third eye chakra is so important.

Have you heard about the sixth sense? Not the movie Sixth Sense by Bruce Willis!

We are talking about the psychic power sixth sense here. The Third Eye Chakra is the 6th chakra, and it empowers our sixth sense ability (a.k.a intuition). It sits at the center of the forehead between the Throat Chakra and the Crown Chakra, acting as a doorway to the spiritual world. This chakra holds your source of wisdom, conscience, and higher awareness.

Can you see how powerful it is?

A healthy Third Eye Chakra helps you to think clearly, embrace spiritual thoughts, and engage in self-reflection. It also helps in developing how you see the world and positively shapes your reality and beliefs.

You may ask, "how can I keep my Third Eye Chakra healthy?"

Great question!

You need to do some work to improve your intuition! The Third Eye Chakra communicates with you through visualization and dreams. Paying attention to these will allow you to decode the messages of the soul and strengthen your INTUITION. And you will have access to the untapped wisdom and spiritual world.

Are you ready to open up your Third Eye Chakra? 

Setting The ABUNDANCE Intention

Before you start the chakra opening exercises, you need to set your ABUNDANCE INTENTION first. When you say a little prayer or affirmation about what you are going to do, you are sending your intention out to the Universe, asking it to give you the smoothest ride.

Do not overlook this mere action! The Law of Attraction and our intentions have the power to align our heart, mind, and body, and turn our thoughts into our new realities. With that, we can attract an abundance of wealth, health, and love to our lives.

At WonderSpark, this is how we like to set our Abundance Intention before starting to unblock the Third Eye Chakra:

ABUNDANCE INTENTION SETTING

Step 1: Put on WonderSpark Third Eye Chakra earrings

Step 2: Look into the mirror, focus on the color and symbol of the earrings

Step 3: Inhale and slowly exhale out all your worries (3x)

Step 4: Feel the energy of your Third Eye Chakra (the center of your forehead)

Step 5: Let the universe know your wishes for life. How would it be for you when you no longer experience the problems you have?


Once you have set your abundance intention, you can choose one or more of the following methods to unblock your Third Eye Chakra.


Method 1: Daily Affirmations 

Repeating positive mantras on a regular basis is one of the most powerful ways to rewire your brain. It can not only replace your negative thinking patterns with positivity, but also realign your chakras, and even heal your body.

Imagine how your life might be different if you were financially, physically, and emotionally stable. Can you feel the joy?

Here we have prepared our Top 5 Third Eye Chakra affirmations to help you get started. You could also get more inspiration from Google!

Third Eye Chakra represents intuition, so why not implement this while choosing your list of third eye chakra affirmations? Try to close your eyes and say each sentence aloud to see if any affirmation connects with you most. Ask the Universe for guidance and trust yourself!

As you practice saying or writing your affirmations every day, remember to RECORD how you feel each time. You will surely be surprised when you notice how your feelings have evolved with each passing day.


Method 2: The Chakra Yoga

Yoga is yet another wonderful practice to realign your chakras. As you move and stretch your body, energy will flow freely throughout your system. This will allow your mind to relax and clear your thoughts. Here’s a yoga routine to open up your Third Eye Chakra, give it a try, and let it bring about a change to your life! 😊

Method 3: Cleansing Your Body with Crystals

Using crystals is a natural way to clear your blocked chakras. By reactivating your body's natural energy flow, these stones can align your mind, body, and soul. Wearing a crystal around your neck or lying down with a crystal at the center of your forehead and breathing for a few minutes will unblock the Third Eye Chakra.

Indigo is the symbolic color of Third Eye Chakra. So, blue and purple crystals are most suitable to use for healing this chakra. Let us show you a few of our favorite stones. Angelite, just like its name, is a healing stone that provides guidance through divine contact with angels, guides, and your higher-self.

Another cool stone is Sodalite. It is a stone that promotes intuition and helps give direction with respect to life purpose. Lapis Lazuli and Sapphire are also prominent stones for balancing the third eye chakra. Their beautiful night sky blue definitely scores many points in our hearts. Take a look at the picture below, do you have a favorite third eye chakra stone?🤔

Method 4: Meditation

By connecting with your body and practicing breathwork, meditation helps in releasing the negative energy trapped in your body and replacing it with fresh, positive, and inspiring energy. We highly recommend this guided meditation to unblock and realign your Third Eye Chakra.

Don’t just take our word for it, a lot of people have said that they could feel the center of their foreheads vibrating after listening to this meditation.

Give it a try! You may be able to activate your Third Eye Chakra just like these people. 👍

BONUS!

Did you know that consuming specific food items, and wearing or seeing a specific color can aid in the opening of your Third Eye Chakra?

You may think this sounds absurd, but what do you have to lose by trying, right?

So, here’s what you can do.

Diet:

  • Purple fruits like goji berries, acai, concord (purple) grapes, and blackberries
  • Purple vegetables such as purple cabbage, purple kale, eggplant, and purple carrots
  • Nuts and seeds such as raw walnuts, sprouted almonds, and poppy seeds
  • Brain foods such as cacao
  • Water
  • Metal detox foods from the ground like harvest grains and mushrooms

Color Therapy:

You could wear or visualize the color Indigo. Meditating on a deep indigo light passing through the center of your forehead is another unique way to activate your third eye chakra.

Some additional options you can consider to include in your routine include:

    1. Practicing Open-Mindedness
    Read a book, listen to a podcast or watch a movie that represents a completely opposite viewpoint from your beliefs.

    2. Getting Sunlight
    Since the third eye is associated with both light and darkness, ensure that you get ample amount of light.

    3. Sleeping Well
    Listen to your body and respect your natural sleep-wake cycle. For this purpose, it is recommended to eliminate the use of all sleeping aids and yes - caffeine too.

    4. Dream Log

    In addition to journaling, keeping a track of your dreams as soon as you wake up helps in connecting with your spiritual self and activates your Third Eye Chakra.

    5. Purple Flowers

    Buy yourself some beautiful purple flowers such as Iris, Bellflowers, and Dessert Bluebells to elevate your vibrational energy.


    Now that you are armed with many different ways to unblock your Third Eye Chakra, it’s time to give each one of them some love and use your INTUITION to find your favorites.

    You can only realign your Third Eye Chakra and start attracting abundance into your life if you have a consistent routine along with a strong desire to turn your wishes into reality. So, make the unblocking exercises a regular part of your day and practice the techniques at least three to four times a week.
