How to balance the third eye chakra

In order to balance the third eye, you first have to make sure to take care of your physical body. The chakras in the physical body include root, sacral, solar plexus, heart and throat. If any of these are out of balance then it’s not going to be possible to completely clear the third eye chakra.

MeditationMeditation

Deep meditation is needed to balance the third eye chakra.

  • Sit cross-legged on a mat or sit on a chair with both feet on the floor.
  • Keep your back straight, arms relaxed and your eyes closed.
  • Take two or three deep breaths.
  • Now focus on the area between your eyebrows. Imagine the energy rising up from the base of your body, the root chakra through the chakras to your third eye.
  • Imagine a ball of indigo energy radiating outwards through the whole body from the third eye.
  • Continue with the deep breathing and visualizations for as long as you are comfortable. 10 to 15 minutes is good to start with.

Try holding a crystal while you meditate or listen to some binaural beats for a stronger session.
