About the Third Eye Chakra
The third eye chakra, or brow chakra, is where we perceive the higher dimensions of reality and connect to the universal consciousness. It is associated with clairvoyance, intuition, inspiration and creativity. The third eye chakra is also thought to be connected to our biorhythms, the control center of our minds that regulates sleep and waking times. The color of this chakra is represented by a bluish white or translucent purple. Poets, writers, healers and artists benefit greatly from stimulating the third eye chakra. For everyone, supporting the third eye supports our search for higher meaning and a deeper understanding of the universe around us.
Celestine is associated with the third eye chakra, Anja: wisdom, understanding, mindfulness and higher consciousness. The third eye chakra is primarily linked to the pituitary gland, which regulates serotonin. Balanced Anja benefits include intuition, perception, imagination, good memory, good dream recall, improved visualization, encouraging an open-mind and an ability to see the big picture.
Amethyst is one of the most popular crystals for third eye chakra work. Even in ancient cultures, Amethyst was used to connect to the divine. Amethyst is well-known for bringing one into a relaxed state, but it is also a focus state of heightened awareness. As a stone for sleep, Amethyst can also be seen as a gateway to the unconscious mind.
Black obsidian is a stone of mystery and revelation. Often called the stone of truth, provokes a sense of curiosity and motivates one to discover answers. Obsidian brings clarity to the mind, discharging confusion and constricting beliefs, and encourages exploration of the unknown. It is highly effective for expanding consciousness in the meditative state and for activating untapped abilities.
