Third Eye Chakra Healing: Best Crystals to Use

What is Third Eye Chakra

This center is a very narrow channel. The left and right chakras meet at the crossroads of the optic nerve, and when this center is smooth and sound, the spiritual energy penetrates right through and rises upward, the mind is stilled, and the space for alternate thoughts is lengthened. The Third Eye Chakra governs intuition and represents perception, inner vision, insight, spiritual destiny, psychic ability and cosmic connection. It is located between the eyebrows, but more accurately, the third eye chakra is located in the pineal gland. When you open the sixth chakra, you will discover how to communicate with angels, spirits, lucid dreaming, astral traveling and activate psychic abilities.

Ways Crystals Work on the Third Eye Chakra

  • Yoga

Third Eye Chakra crystals can be combined with poses, gestures and yoga asanas for cleansing and recharging. Ideal yoga asanas to open the Third Eye Chakra are Plow Pose, Child's Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Bow Pose or Dolphin Pose.

  • Meditation

Higher chakras, such as the throat, third eye and top of the head, are physically close to the brain, so meditation is the best way to activate them with crystals. While meditating, you can place the third eye chakra crystal on your forehead in order to recharge it. All you need to do is lie down on your yoga mat, place the crystal, close your eyes and meditate. You can visualize an indigo lotus flower with two petals and an inverted triangle (symbol of the third eye chakra).

  • Sonic Therapy

Each chakra resonates to two specific frequencies, the natural resonant frequency and the sight-singing frequency. The natural resonance frequency of the third eye is 720 Hz and the sight-singing frequency is 852 Hz. Go to an online platform and listen to music or songs with this frequency to recharge your third eye chakra crystals. Chanting bowls that resonate at these frequencies or notes are also great for activating your third eye chakra with sound.

  • Sound Therapy

The seed syllable or mantra associated with the brow chakra is OM. this is a common word used in Hinduism and Buddhism for meditation prior to prayer and worship. Repeating Om mentally causes physiological alertness and increases sensitivity to sensory transmissions. In addition, Hindus believe that the universe began with a loud "Om". Repeatedly chanting "Om" while holding the third eye chakra crystal will activate your brow chakra.

When you hold the third eye chakra crystal and chant positive affirmations, you will be able to energize your highest energy, which will also awaken the throat chakra. By doing the above, you can merge your breath, thoughts and space with the crystal energy, thus helping you to express your intentions like a good luck charm. Here are some affirmations for the Third Eye Chakra:

I trust my intuition.

I am connected to the universe.

I can express my intentions.

  • Diet

You can recharge your brow chakra by using foods associated with the chakras. For example, blueberries and eggplant. Herbal teas and water are also great to use with foods and crystals to open the third eye chakra. Additionally, you can place healing crystals in close proximity to Third Eye Chakra foods to cleanse, recharge, and enhance their nourishment. I sometimes use third eye chakra wands made from crystals such as amethyst, lapis lazuli, fluorite, moonstone, or cordierite to cleanse food.

  • Aromatherapy

Just as certain colors, frequencies, foods, and yoga poses target the sixth chakra, essential oils are also associated with it. You can apply a few drops of essential oil to your third eye crystal and then place the crystal on your brow chakra in the morning. Best Third Eye Chakra Essential Oils:
