Chakras are the energy centers of our body. Each chakra has its own energetic purpose and each one plays an important role in our general health and well-being.
The purpose of the Third Eye Chakra is to help us see behind the veil of illusion and recognize the true nature of everything, beyond the dualities of good and evil. If our Third Eye Chakra is balanced, we can see the interconnectedness of all things, and tap into our intuition with greater ease.
There are many reasons why our Third Eye Chakra can become blocked, but very often, the root cause is ignoring the voice of our own intuition for far too long.
Our intuition is what connects us to our soul wisdom and when we ignore it, we disconnect from our higher selves.
Learning to trust our own intuition is one of the most important steps we can take towards opening up our Third Eye Chakra.
Working with crystals can speed up this process by offering us support and guidance and connecting us with the spiritual realms.
Here is my selection of 3 wonderful crystals for working with the Third Eye Chakra:
Tanzanite is a high-vibrational crystal that helps us unlock our intuition and psychic powers. It is one of the best crystals for opening up our Third Eye Chakra, as it helps us bridge the gap between the material and spiritual worlds. It helps us connect with the angelic realms and receive downloads straight from the Spirit.
Tanzanite is also a powerful crystal of protection. This is important, because we might need extra protection when our Third Eye Chakra is starting to open up, since that is when we become more receptive and vulnerable to all kinds of energies.
The calming and harmonizing vibes of Tanzanite make it a great crystal to hold in your hands while you are meditating. Its enchanting blue-violet hue helps to focus a restless mind and enhances quiet self-reflection.
Sodalite is often referred to as the Stone of Truth, as it helps us to see complicated situations in our lives with clarity and honesty.
Sodalite helps us see how everything is interconnected. For instance, I might be suffering from a chronic health condition, but, on the flip side, I have a lot of free time for self-reflection and spiritual growth.
At the same time, a friend of mine might have great health, but no time to take care of her own needs as she is raising a small child on her own. So, as we can see, there really is no separation between us, human beings. Each one of us is struggling in some ways and yet, we all have blessings that others are longing to have.
Sodalite helps to open up a blocked Third Eye Chakra by guiding us to see through the illusion of separation. It also teaches us to see others from a positive perspective and to recognize their unique gifts and good qualities.
Blue Quartz is another high-vibrational crystal that helps us reach a higher state of awareness. This enchanting crystal teaches us that the here and now is where our true power lies. We tend to forget that enlightenment is not a place that we reach, but rather reconnecting with our own divine essence.
Once we realize that our true nature is pure and perfect, and so is everyone else’s, we have already lifted the veil of illusion.
Blue Quartz can bring us guidance and messages from our Guardian Angel or Spirit Guides. It fills us with calm and harmonious vibrations and helps us focus our mind.
Blue Quartz can help us heal our Third Eye Chakra by connecting us with the voice of our intuition. Our intuition is always guiding us to make the best decisions towards living a fulfilling life, but sometimes it can become blocked if we have ignored it for too long.
We may have seen signs and received messages nudging us in a certain direction, but perhaps we have been too afraid to take action. That is when our Third Eye Chakra begins to close up.
Blue Quartz can help to open up any existing blockages in the Third Eye Chakra by gently guiding us to reconnect with the voice of our intuition, and to follow it. When we learn to trust our own intuition, we regain a sense of purpose and direction in our lives. Everything starts to make sense again, bit by bit.
How to Use Crystals for the Third Eye Chakra Healing
To heal your Third Eye Chakra, wear earrings or a hair clip made of any of the above-mentioned three crystals. Alternatively, you can try this simple meditation practice:
- Sit comfortably in a quiet space. Hold one of the three Third Eye Chakra crystals in your hands and close your eyes. Relax your mind and body by taking a few deep breaths.
- Now, visualize blue-violet light coming from the crystal and entering the area between your eyebrows, where your Third Eye Chakra is located.
- Try not to think anything, just feel the sensations this blue-violet light brings. Feel how it cleanses and balances your Third Eye Chakra.
- Stay in this state of meditation for as long as you like. Now, open your eyes and slowly bring your awareness back to the outer world.
What if crystals could speak? What if each one of them has their own story?
In her brand-new e-book, The Inspiring Stories of 33 Crystals, Elina Allais uses her intuitive powers to get up close and personal with the crystals. She discovers that each crystal has their own unique story to tell – a story of all the challenges they have faced and the empowering lessons they have learned. Read it here.
