I can not believe it has been so long since my last post on the 5th chakra. I hope the Crown Chakra will not take so long.
Sanskrit name: Ajna or to perceive, to know
Location: Above and between the eyebrows
Associated color: Indigo
Main Issues: Intuition, Wisdom
Endocrine Gland: Pituitary
Body parts: Eyes, and the base of the skull
Astrological sign: Sagittarious, Pisces
Sense: Sixth sense
It Is the seat of dreams, inner vision, spiritual direction and wisdom. It is connected to the pituitary, hypothalamus and the pineal glands – located in the center of our brain. An open 6th Chakra allows us to receive wisdom from our inner world – the world of our dreams, our unconscious and subconscious minds, and our imagination.
The Third Eye is also connected very much to our physical eyes, and is thought to be an elevated vibration of our capacity “to see”.
If the 6th Chakra is blocked we may experience headaches, suppressed memories, frequent nightmares, depression and anxiety
Overactive: Confusion, fogginess, know- it-all, inflexible, judgmental.
Underdeveloped: Follow the crowd, fear of change,
Imbalances overall: learning disability, poor coordination, sleep disorders, fear of truth, flightiness, passive aggressive, confusion, depression, eye problems, deafness.
Balanced: Living an inspired and inspiring life; wise, discerning, perceptive and imaginative individuals who believe in themselves and their abilities
Foods: Because of its associations with indigo, dark foods like blueberries, blackberries, grapes, grape juice or red wine will stimulate the Sixth Chakra.
Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)
(Standing Half Forward Bend)
Crystals: Amethyst, Fluorite, Azurite, Lapis, Sapphire
Fragrances: Rose geranium, Violet
Oils: frankincense, lavender, rosemary, patchouli, or mugwort
The note that helps balance the chakra is “A”
