Do you want to activate your intuitive powers so you can receive information more clearly?
Here are my top ten tips for powerful ways to re-balance and activate your third eye chakra:
1. Relax Into Alpha
Meditation can be beneficial for almost anything in life, including helping you access intuition.
People with third eye blocks can over-use the analytical mind to help process the energetic build-up of the mind. Over-analyzing can never replace the type of direct knowing you can receive from the third eye chakra.
Attempt to move away from overthinking and stay in a more neutral, open state where you will be ready to receive intuitive information by leaving an overactive mind and focusing on your breath.
2. Enjoy Alone Time In Nature
Relaxing in nature, away from technology and the cognitive mind’s other temptations can open up the kind of intuition we needed when we as a species lived outdoors and relied upon it to keep us safe from the elements, predators, and other true fear dangers.
Honor your need to go within to recharge — there is nothing wrong with supporting your health by taking lots of downtime in between work or social engagements.
3. Observe Your Body Talk
Your intuition communicates through your body so the more you cultivate somatic awareness, the more attuned you become. See if you get an uncomfortable physical feeling when you’re trying to make a decision.
This could be merely the result of stress responses brought on by false fear, but it could also be your intuition trying to alert you to something.
4. Get Creative
Engaging in colorful, creative activities, such as drawing, painting, or journaling quiets the cognitive mind and turns the volume up on your intuition.
Trust the forms of creative expression which inspire you the best more and dedicate part of your day to exploring it further.
5. Trust Spontaneous Insights
Intuition arrives in many different forms. For some, it is very physical, for others, it is auditory or visual (in the form of seeing auras or other energetic information) but it can also come to us as a deep knowing.
6. Monitor Your Dreams
Observe what comes up for you when you are asleep. Often messages are received in your dream state so keep a dream journal by the side of your bed and set the intention to remember your dreams or nightmares when you wake up.
Make this the first thing you do upon waking in the morning otherwise you may forget as the conscious mind kicks in.
Rebalance Your Pituitary & Pineal Glands
The pineal gland regulates your circadian rhythm and helps your brain enter the meditation state easier by the alpha state of consciousness.
8. Avoid Fluoride
Fluoride can calcify the pineal gland which effects intuitive function. Fluoride is found in our water system as well as in toothpaste.
Skin is our largest organ; turning on the hot water opens pores and allows the fluoride into the bloodstream, circulating onto the pineal gland.
9. Use Vibrational Remedies
The third-eye Chakra, or the Ajna, is the area to concentrate on for heightened intuitive abilities.
Up the intensity of tuning by incorporating the color indigo around the home and office, carrying or wearing healing crystals (such as a lapis lazuli, fluorite, amethyst, or quartz), flower essences (such as Bush Iris, Yellow Cowslip Orchid or Angelsword), or organic essential oils (such as Frankincense or Rose).
10. Introduce A Non-Competitive Exercise
Releasing competitive energy that drains you will allow you to remain open to healing intuitive energy flow.
There are lots of energy practices and physical exercises that you can do to stay in an open and ready mental state.
You can try, Tai Chi, Qigong, walking, meditation or yoga. Discover a routine that uplifts you the most and make it a part of your daily routine.
