If I were to have a favourite chakra, this would be it. And yet I know that none of them work in isolation and this chakra could not be as active without the others also functioning. Sometimes called the third eye, this chakra, when activated gives us the ability to use both right and left brain. As a result, our perspective creates a vision of our world that intertwines both the logical and the intuitive. When I talk about the power of the mind or the power of thought, it is through this chakra. This is definitely an area I personally find both inspiring and fulfilling.
When we fully activate this chakra, we are able to examine and change our limiting beliefs. Here we can access our wisdom. Here we can strengthen our spirit. Here we learn to aim for our highest good as well as the highest good for all.
While this chakra is connected with the mind, do not confuse it will being an intellectual or analytical thinker who trusts only what is conventional making them narrow thinkers, even though they may not see this in themselves.
You may ask “how do I use this part of me more often? I aspire to wisdom and balance.”
It requires growing in self awareness while at the same time accepting others, seeing the good in each person. Seek out people who think as you do and allow yourself to express your own uniqueness in ways that serve you best.
Personally I love spending time with friends who share this perspective. I feel I am at my best when I have spent some time each day reading some inspirational material, or meditating or doing self Reiki. I wish I could say I do this daily. I get sidetracked. My humanness kicks in and I forget. But I notice the difference and when I return to this practice, my day flows much better.
From my learning and experience, I sense that we cannot function from this chakra alone. It is by working with all the chakras that we are at our best.
Are you interested in a retreat?
I have been giving serious thought to offering another retreat. If this interests you at all, let me know. Would November be a good month? Would you prefer an overnight or just two full days? I am looking forward to hearing your response.
Till next time,
