This disruption of energy can cause your mind, body, and spirit to suffer.

Practicing chakra balancing and aligning is a regular and sometimes daily activity to explore. But how do you balance your third eye chakra?

Open up to Wisdom – Opening yourself up to new ideas and understanding can help restore the harmonious flow of energy in your third eye chakra. This wisdom can come from others, or you can dive into your own insight and inner knowledge. Try reading new books with different perspectives, and take time to journal your own thoughts.

Get Outside – The third eye chakra is highly influenced by the element of light. This is not limited to light from the sun, but the light from the stars and the moon as well. Getting outside on sunny days or in the evenings of full moons can help restore balance to your third eye chakra.

  • Focus your attention on the location of your third eye chakra: in between your brows.
