Third Eye Chakra
The doorway towards spiritual enlightenment
Known as the "seeing" chakra, this energy center is responsible for reality, perception, manifesting, thought and intuition.
What are Chakras?
Chakras are energy centers within the body. The word chakra means “wheel” or “disk.” Think of the chakras as spinning vortices of energy that correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of your energetic body that affect your emotional and physical well-being.
Opening your chakras and allowing cosmic energies to flow through your body will ultimately refresh your spirit and empower your life.
There are seven main chakras that align along the spine; starting at the base of the spine and moving up to the crown of the head. When adequate energy flows to these chakras, that energy fills the area with the vital life force each chakra needs to perform its unique specialty.
Each of the seven chakras is governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate greater harmony, happiness, and wellbeing in our lives and in the world.
You are constantly changing, growing, evolving and adapting to outside influences; as such, lifestyle choices, life experiences, circumstances and outside influences may hinder the flow of energy to these energy centers. When chakras become blocked, it destructs the flow of energy in our bodies and causes emotional and physical distress.
Disease is often an accumulation of dammed-up energy. When we learn how energy moves through the chakras, we can begin to allow it to flow freely through our bodies, creating greater health.

Fortunately, there are a variety of practices, including affirmations, that can help keep these channels open and allow energy to flow freely.
Affirmations are powerful statements used to balance and harmonize these energy centers. Through consistency and repetition, affirmations direct healing energy to restore balance to specific areas of your body and life.

Third Eye Chakra
Your Third Eye Chakra, Ajna, allows you to access your inner guidance that comes from the depths of your being. It allows you to access deeper truth and wisdom from within.
Located in the middle of the forehead just above the eyes, this energy center is responsible for intuition, inner wisdom, inner knowing, imagination, thought, self-awareness and truth.
"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."
The Sanskrit word for the throat chakra is Ajna which translates to “perceive".
When the third eye chakra is clean and balanced, one can see life with clarity and possess strong intuition, insight, self-awareness, and emotional balance.
The third eye chakra is also associated with the pineal gland within the brain.
Imbalances in the Third Eye Chakra can manifest as; closed-mindedness, confusion, uncertainty, anxiety, depression, pessimism, lack of purpose, paranoia or cynicism.

Using Theta Thoughts to Open Your Third Eye Chakra
As you listen to this meditation visualize a vibrant indigo blue orb gently vibrating at the the space between your brow. Immerse your third eye chakra in vibrant indigo energy as you relax deeply into the calming affirmations in this meditation.
Theta Thoughts allows you to transcend negative thoughts and replace them with new positive thoughts through relaxation and repetition; theta binaural beats + positive affirmation loop. When the body and mind are relaxed you are more receptive to receiving the newly desired thoughts. Through this process, new neural pathways and positive thought patterns are created.
While relaxing comfortably in your bed you are gently guided into deep states of relaxation. As you soften into complete stillness all of your day-to-day thoughts and worries begin to drift away and positive thoughts begin to fill your mind space. As the positive affirmations cycle through your mind they create a positive thought pattern.
Over time your negative and limiting thoughts about money begin to dissolve and the positive affirmations aligned with abundance become your new dominant thoughts.
As your internal dialogue begins to transform both your internal and external worlds will shift and you will come into alignment with your desires.
