We have a crystal for that ;)
The Third Eye Chakra, located between the eyebrows at the bridge of the nose that governs intuition, inner wisdom and imagination. The chakra of beyond wisdom, the Third Eye Chakra opens up your mind to information beyond the material world and five senses and invites intuition and inner awareness to everyday life.
When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced, true creativity from within flows naturally and effortlessly, your intuition and inner knowing are on point and you will feel equally in tune with the physical and material worlds, allowing harmonisation of both worlds, while enhancing and receiving psychic information.
When the Third Eye Chakra is underactive, lack of clarity and vision may arise, difficulty focusing and seeing the truth in self and in situations, rejection or disconnection of anything spiritual, only trusting common knowledge, science or intellect, usually fearing intuition and trusting your own psychic abilities.
When the Third Eye Chakra is overactive, you will spend too much time engaging in psychic activities like astrology, tarot or paranormal experiences. Trusting your own inner guidance becomes conflicted because you rely on the guidance of others like clairvoyant’s, card readers etc. You find it difficult being in the here and now, never truly grounded or focused, quite literally, off with the fairies.
When the Third Eye Chakra isn’t balanced, it can also have physical repercussions such as overthinking which can lead to panic attacks, anxiety and depression, headaches, always stressed or worried and sleep disturbances.

Ways to Bring Balance Back to the Third Eye Chakra
Simply focusing on the Third Eye area, close your eyes, taking some deep conscious breaths and repeat our Third Eye Affirmation below -
I am connected to the universe and all of its powers, I am intuitive and trust the information I receive.
Placing your chosen Third Eye Support Crystal at the Third Eye Chakra location is another way to enhance and balance that area also, do this by laying down comfortably and place the crystals on the body in a way that feels right for you, we believe that if something feels right and good for you, you are more likely to do it, so really trust yourself and your own inner guidance for what suits you as an individual.
We love nature and being in the elements while working on the Third Eye Chakra, actually, any of the Chakras really helps to ground yourself during times of healing and release, find your place outdoors, be it the ocean, mountains or just somewhere peaceful in the fresh air, place your bare feet firmly on the earth and try one of our suggested Third Eye Chakra Balancing Techniques.
We hope this has helped you understand yourself a little bit more, always remembering just how powerful and capable you truly are, much love Jay and Nat xx
