Massage is an amazing way of relaxing and regrouping. How many times have you been stressed, and found some relief by rubbing your temples or the base of your skull? This is because the third-eye chakra is in that area of your skull, and by massaging your temples, you′re actually bringing healing to it.
Massaging this area with essential oils is more difficult because it′s not always practical to get the oils into your hair! However, they can still be used. One way is to use an oil diffuser. Add a few drops of a third-eye essential oil to the burner, and inhale deep relaxing breaths.
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Focus on the color purple (bright if you want to stimulate your chakra, muted if you want to settle it), and let the oil do its work. Suitable selections might be patchouli, cypress, or clary sage.
It′s not hard to see why this area has to be open and balanced in order for you to make your way through life in a harmonious and fulfilled way. When it needs a tune up, you′ll start to doubt your sense of reality, and question what has validity.You′ll be easily persuaded by others, and they might not always be looking out for your best interests.
You become fearful of what might happen, whether those fears have any root in reality or not. Once the third-eye chakra is working properly again, you′ll feel much more at peace with things. Your hunches and dreams won′t frighten you. You′ll be able to easily discern truth from deception, and be able to move ahead with making your plans a reality.
Balancing this area is necessary for you to live a life that has just enough imagination to allow you to dream and make your life journey interesting, without going overboard into a world of uncertainty or illusion.
