Your brow chakra is slightly above and between your eyebrows. It’s color is indigo and it’s associated with the pineal gland and the release of melatonin. This means it’s related to your sleep states and inner
world. The third eye is the highest feminine chakra, so it represents intuitive and psychic gifts as well as deep, feminine wisdom.
Is your third eye “open?” Most likely it is. A better question is: HOW open is it? Even though people often talk about “closed” chakras, what they’re really referring to is partially closed (underactive) chakras. If your third eye chakra is strong you will tend to have a powerful connection to your Higher Self, an engaging inner world, equanimity and great perspective.
If your brow chakra is underactive, you will probably recognize quite a few of these symptoms in yourself:
- Dizzy spells
- Sinus issues (note: most eye issues signify too much brow chakra energy, not too little, and often indicate too little solar plexus chakra energy).
- Lack of connection to your intuition
- Feeling you’re not good at imagining or envisioning things
- You think you don’t dream (or you can never remember your dreams).
- You have trouble seeing the ‘big picture’ and taking different perspectives (rather than just your own).
If you can see yourself in this list, you could probably benefit from doing some third eye healing practices. Here’s an article on the 6 Best Ways to Open Your Brow Chakra. You may also want to try this simple yoga pose for boosting the third eye chakra, or practice asking these Transformational Power Questions that will help open it.
