If you desire greater access to your higher self and guidance from the universe, opening the third eye chakra is key. This chakra is the channel of our intuition, giving us clarity and wisdom that makes navigating life so much easier and brings us inner peace.
If you’ve been struggling to make decisions, feeling disconnected from your spiritual side, and getting anxious about things that don’t truly matter, you’ll benefit from using these third eye chakra affirmations.
The affirmations will help you to shift the stuck energy in this chakra so that you can gain clarity about your goals, tune into higher frequencies, and live in harmony with the present moment.
What is the Third Eye Chakra?
Our chakras, meaning ‘wheel’ in Sanskrit, are hubs of energy in the body. Each has it’s own purpose and influence on the mind and body. In the past chakras were thought to just be a spiritual concept, but studies show that chakras influence human psychology.
The third eye chakra, called Ajna in Sanskrit, is located in the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows. It is the sixth chakra and is all about your connection to your intuition, higher consciousness, and spiritual awareness. The third eye allows us to see beyond the physical world and access knowledge that lies outside our human perspective.
When open and in balance, we can see the big picture instead of getting lost in small dramas.
If this chakra is closed or imbalanced you tend to be led by the ego, which causes you to make more fear based decisions. It’s harder to see the right path because you don’t have access to your higher self through the channel of your intuition.
The third eye chakra can be opened through practices such as visualization, meditation, journaling, and the affirmations in this article. I also have a higher self meditation below that can help.
Signs Your Third Eye Chakra is Blocked
When the sixth chakra is closed or blocked you aren’t connected to your intuition and your ego runs the show. The ego has a very narrow perspective and is always looking for danger, so it avoids everything in the unknown even when it may benefit us.
You may experience a lot of confusion about your place in the world. You’ll feel like you don’t have a purpose in life, or you’ll feel stuck because you don’t know what actions to take to pursue your dreams and goals.
This leads to problems with concentration, problem solving, and decision making. You get bogged down in small details that don’t matter when you zoom out and look at your life from a higher perspective.
Just think about all the times when you were so stressed out about something, but a week later it didn’t even matter. That’s because your third eye was blocked and you couldn’t see from a higher perspective.
If left unaddressed, a closed off third eye can even lead to depression and anxiety.
Additional symptoms of a blocked third eye chakra:
- Anxiety about little things
- Feeling stuck in life
- Making fear based decisions
- Uncertain what your purpose is
- Second guessing your choices
- Trouble concentrating
- Mental fog
Qualities of a Balance Third Eye Chakra
As the center of intuition and our spiritual connection to the universe, when the third eye chakra is open we see things beyond what is visible to our limited human perception.
We have greater self-awareness and an awareness of the infinite possibilities that are available to us. This chakra is believed to help us see things outside of the physical world, acting as a doorway to the divine.
When we are connected to our intuition we look inward for guidance and answers, we don’t need external sources to tell us what’s right.
An open third eye chakra also expands our imagination and creativity because we are tapped in cosmic energy where anything can be created.
Other signs your third eye chakra is open:
- Knowing your purpose
- A sense of inner peace
- Easier to concentrate on important tasks
- Able to imagine big possibilities
- Certainty about your path
- Inner wisdom
- Seeing the big picture
How to Heal the Third Eye Chakra With Affirmations
Chakra healing is a process of activating and balancing your chakras in order to allow for the free flow of energy through the body. You can use affirmations to help activate and open your chakras because they help to reprogram your subconscious mind, clear fear, blocks, and limiting beliefs, and promote healing.
These healing third eye chakra affirmations will help you become receptive to the guidance of the inner voice and knowing of your intuition.
Affirmations help us shift our attention away from the things that aren’t serving us, and allow us to focus on what we would like to feel and experience instead.
You may have heard the phrase, “what you focus on expands,” so when we start to focus on what we want to experience instead of all the things we don’t, we start to automatically make positive changes often without even being aware of it.
How to use healing Third Eye Chakra affirmations
You can use affirmations at any time you need them, while driving your car, in the shower (visualize the things you don’t want anymore going down the drain), when you’re feeling anxious, before falling asleep, or first thing when you wake up in the morning.
But it’s a really good idea to take a few minutes each day to sit somewhere quiet, take some slow deep breaths, and say your affirmations with feeling and purpose. So you aren’t just saying the words, you are feeling that they are truth in your body and mind.
When you first start using affirmations you may even feel your throat closing up because you don’t believe the words you’re saying. This is perfectly normal, keep saying them. Make them a daily mantra. Eventually your brain will stop resisting them and they’ll start to feel true.
Choose around 10 affirmations that you like from the list below, then write them on a paper and keep it on your nightstand, desk, or mirror so that you remember to repeat them at least once a day, or more if you like.
Feel free to combine affirmations for multiple chakras.
