Through the ages of 36 & 45, the Third Eye Chakra is becoming activated with wisdom. It has the capacity to control the flow of energy across the whole subtle body, much like the pituitary gland regulates hormone release throughout the nervous system.

The Third Eye Chakra is about transcending duality through the correspondence of opposites. You hold both polarities (light/dark, masculine/feminine, positive/negative, :yin_yang:). Everything you have within; you create outside you.

Imbalanced or Blocked Third Eye Chakra

The focus is on the intellect & there is no interest in spirituality. You are untrusting of your intuition & can only see the physical reality of life with a lot of fear surrounding inner wisdom.

Thank you for sharing your wisdom! Here are some yoga practices.


Thank you @crystal5, I have added the playlist to the post! I appreciate your assistance with the yoga, I am not well versed in yoga anything honestly… breathing exercises & meditation are still fairly new to me :laughing:


Three of my favorite crystals! :gem::sparkles: Maybe I’ll bring them out for a Third Eye meditation later today :woman_in_lotus_position: :purple_heart:

Thank you so much for this, Siofra!


Thank you for this @Susurrus a lot of great info.


Are you familiar with the practice of placing a crystal on your third eye while reclining in meditation?

The sound bath on the playlist might be nice to listen to with a Crystal on your third eye.


As you can guess, I highly recommend yoga, breath work, and meditation. Have you seen the explanation for clearing chakras on Avatar? How To Open Your 7 Chakras As Explained In a Children's Show - YouTube


I haven’t, my children are all older (23, 20, 13) so they & I no longer watch Avatar. I remember when one of my sons did though. I just can’t remember the episodes any longer. :laughing:


I have heard it of it, yes! :blush:

But ever since I heard that you have to be careful about placing stones directly around the body (as they can have some intended effects), I’ve been a bit hesitant about it- I only use a few of the stones I know best, and I usually only hold them in my hands or keep them nearby- at least for now! :gem::grinning:

I forgot about this!!! :heart_eyes: ATLA is such an amazing show :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:



I am so glad you posted this information. You see how later I am starting this Challenge? It is beyond chaos here and I never had gray hair, but this morning I found one :roll_eyes: I will be using this information, thank you, on the Third Eye Chakras and Intuition.

Blessed Be My Sister Witch


You are very welcome! It was a great learning opportunity for myself.

Unfortunately, I’ve had gray hair since I was 17, then each child… it became more of a streak really :thinking:

It’s quite alright, I am behind on this challenge also. I know what I am going to do, I just haven’t done it yet. So, I’m right there with you on being late! I will get it done though, most likely tomorrow though. :smiling_face:
