Each one of your chakras is quite distinct. It relates to a particular area of your life and a particular element. For this reason, it responds best to some healing modalities over others. In general, first five chakras are tied to the physical world (with the root being the most concretely tied), so they require more physical action and repetition for healing.
Here are the video articles I did on them that show you the best healing methods for each one:
In contrast, your 6th and 7th chakras (3rd eye and crown) are specifically related to the ethereal and are about your spiritual development. Your 3rd eye is specifically about developing a strong relationship with your own Higher Self; your inner knowing. I like to say it’s all about your “i-sight” — your intuition, imagination and insight.
Life presents us with so many choices. It can be confusing if we don’t have an inner guide to lead us in the right direction. Luckily, you have a Higher Self that is communicating with you all the time through your 3rd eye. If you feel like your relationship with your intuitive self is not strong, you can best heal and strengthen it in the following ways:
(1) Do dream work like lucid dreaming where you make a strong intention to actually be actively involved in your dreams or do dream journaling and interpretation where you write down your dreams every morning and work on interpreting the symbols and meanings in them.
(2) Visualization – You can do this inwardly or outwardly, and I recommend both. Meditations are the best way to do inward visualizing. Just close your eyes and create a positive world within you. See and feel what you truly want and as you do this, you change your whole physiology in a way that causes you to interact more positively and confidently with your external world (and thereby change it). You can also visualize externally by creating an Amazing Vision Board. I created an awesome 4-video series that walks you through the process of creating a sacred vision board that will ignite your creative energy in a major way and take your life to the next level. You can access it here:
(3) Use divination or oracle cards – There are lots of different types of divination cards. Using them is a really fun way to tap into your intuition and create a better bond with your Higher Self as well. Here’s one of my video articles where I talk about my favorite divination cards and great ways to connect with your Higher Self.
(4) Elevator Exercise – visualize a mini you at your solar plexus. This is where most of us operate out of – our self-center. You can shift and connect to your higher and wiser self by closing your eyes and visualizing your mini self stepping into a little elevator within you. Imagine that the elevator rides up to the middle of your brow (3rd eye) and lets you out. Imagine you have a window here in the middle of your brow and can look out at your life from this higher vantage point. Your perspective will be much clearer and less ego-identified from here.
(5) My 3rd Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos are a great way to use your sleeping hours for subconscious/passive cultivation of your intuition and connection to your Higher Self. You just where it as you sleep, and IT does the work. You can get it here. The 3rd eye tattoo is not affixed like the other tattoos. For the best way to use it, check out my FAQ page here.
(6) Read books on intuition, especially those that give you exercises – There are lots of great books on intuition and almost all of them agree that while some are more intuitively talented than other, ALL of us can cultivate our 3rd eye powers by practice, practice and more practice.
The key of course, for any of these methods to work, is that you have to believe in your own inner spiritual essence, your inner wisdom truth and connection to spirit. Intuition and psychic abilities belong to every one of us. They are not reserved for the special few. But if you think you can’t possibly have them, then you’re ability to develop them will, of course, be limited.
Think of all the times you just “knew” something was going to happen and all the times you had a “hunch.” And that was in the day when you weren’t consciously cultivating your 3rd eye power! Keep your mind open and practice these methods and your 3rd eye will blossom in ways you can barely imagine, giving you an inner guidance system you can trust completely.
