The Third Eye Chakra is situated between the eye brows, in the centre of the forehead. It is the centre of focus, determination, perseverance and will power. The pineal gland was regarded as the third eye, as it regulates the body’s biological clock or circadian rhythm. This gland secretes melatonin, which is a vital hormone for our 24-hour sleeping and waking patterns and rhythms.
Here is a little tip: whenever you feel that your focus and concentration is diminishing, apart from dashing to make a mug of coffee, gently tap your third eye chakra 9 times. Alternatively using your pointer finger (any hand) make 9 circles clockwise on or around your third eye chakra. Any of these two techniques wake you up instantly!
The third eye chakra is also the seat of the ego. When the ego is in balance it allows us to function with alertness, concentration, willpower and determination towards our goals and for the betterment of all. An ego that feels inferior becomes lethargic and confused. An ego that experiences superiority becomes angry, controlling and dominating.
Shiva’s third eye is always half shut, maintaining a balance. He opens it wide when he needs to prove his superiority to the demons. Nobody has ever heard about an inferior Shiva!
Balancing and healing the Third Eye Chakra helps you visualise your life’s purpose and empowers your creative imagination and intelligence. There is more clarity. You work sincerely on the path of your purpose – your career.
Meditating upon you Third Eye Chakra first thing in the morning will provide you with awareness of the what your dreams reveal to you. Thus, the Third eye Chakra is like a lighthouse and shows you the direction in which you need to drive your life to make it fulfilling and purposeful.
