Third Eye Chakra Color Meaning

The main color of the third eye chakra is indigo, also known as royal blue. The third eye chakra can also be depicted with a deep blue color.

Indigo is a combination of blue and violet. The violet in indigo contributes to awareness, spirituality, wisdom, and connection with the higher self, while blue assists with communication, creativity, purification, and authenticity.

Indigo is considered to be a color of integrity, harmony, deep inner awareness, and wisdom.

People who emit lots of indigo from their auric field tend to possess natural psychic gifts, experience vivid lucid dreams, and sense things before they happen.

According to psychologists, indigo color influences you by putting your mind in a concentrated and focused state.

This is perfect if you want to stay focused, meditate, or you are trying to increase your awareness and insight.

Working with indigo allows you to sharpen your mind and to increase emphasis on spiritual issues.It is said that the third eye chakra connects you with the ability to see that which is unseen.

Healing and opening the third eye chakra is a beautiful process, as it allows you to finally take full command of your reality and clarify your inner vision.

Eventually, you will be able to manifest anything you desire into your life easily and effortlessly by using the power of your own mind and becoming a visionary.

What Is The Third Eye Chakra?

Third eye chakra, also known as the “Brow Chakra”, is the 6th energy center from the bottom, located in the middle of your head, between the eyebrows. Healthy third eye chakra vibrates to the color of indigo or royal blue, with light as its dominant element.

The Sanskrit name for a Third Eye Chakra is ‘Ajna’, which means “to perceive” or “to command”, as activating it will allow you to finally take command of your life and get full access to your internal guidance system.

Working with your third eye chakra by cultivating a strong and independent mind will allow you to discover the reality which lies beyond the physical world and past the realm of your five senses.

Healing and awakening your third eye chakra offers many exciting gifts, such as the ability to manifest material things with the thought alone or the opportunity to return to the magic of childhood.

What Is The Function of Third Eye Chakra?

Third eye chakra controls your ability to perceive, think creatively, and use your intuition. It also governs your self-awareness, self-realization, imagination, and ability to envision all of your dreams.

People with highly developed third eye centers established a close connection with their astral bodies, and they have a better capacity for astral projection and lucid dreaming.

When you open your third eye chakra, you will be able to finally transcend duality and polarity. Third eye chakra is the seat of the sixth sense as it allows you to see the world through the eye of intuition, and it helps you to clarify your inner vision.

The process of visualizing your reality by imagining possibilities is an essential element of a fulfilled life, so the 'brow chakra' is also considered to be your primary manifestation center.

Third Eye Chakra Symbol Meaning

The third eye chakra symbol is an indigo blue lotus with 2 petals. In the center of the lotus, there is a downward-facing triangle representing enlightenment and your connection to the divine with a syllable OM ॐ, known as third eye chakra bija mantra (or seed mantra).

The OM is considered to be the world's fundamental sound, which includes all the other sounds. It is also a sacred spiritual symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, where it is regarded as the Universe's supreme sound and a representation of the Creator.

Why does the third eye chakra symbol has only 2 petals?

Two petals of Ajna chakra are meant to represent Ida and Pingala – 2 most important, subtle energy channels (known as “nadis” in Sanskrit), which travel all the way up from root chakra to your head and meet with Sushumna nadi.

Sushumna is a central nadi which connects all of your chakras along the spine and guides your kundalini energy up towards your crown chakra.

Sometimes left petal of the third eye chakra symbol has a syllable HAM हं written on it, which represents Shiva (symbol of masculine principle), and the right petal is decorated with syllable KSHAM क्षं, which is associated with Shakti (feminine principle).

Two petals of the Ajna chakra symbol can be also interpreted as physical eyes, the manifest and unmanifest mind, or pineal and pituitary glands.

How does third eye chakra help us to see reality?

It is important to realize that we don’t see the reality through our eyes, but our minds. People who opened and activated their third eye chakras can utilize the power of the mind to transform their lives.

When both hemispheres of your brain are working in perfect harmony, you begin to awaken your intuitive skills, such as clairvoyance and clairaudience, see the patterns and develop a clear vision of how to consciously create a purposeful life. 

Third Eye Chakra Blockage

Third eye chakra blockage or imbalance symptoms can be recognized in over-intellectualization, over-rationalization, lack of trust in your own insights, and not being able to “think outside of the box”.

The archetype of the person with an underactive third eye chakra is known as the ‘The Intellectual’.

Intellectual relies purely on the finite resources of the logical and analytical mind without taking into consideration the emotional and spiritual facets of existence.

The Intellectual is usually full of anxiety, tension, and worry due to an over-stimulated mind. This archetype intellectualizes and theorizes his way through life, never trusting his feelings, emotions, and inner guidance.

When your third eye chakra is overactive, you might experience symptoms of losing contact with reality (normally through hallucinations and imagining things that don’t exist), psychic disorders, and complete lack of mental clarity sometimes expressed as ‘brain fog’. 

So, how do you know if your third eye is blocked?

If you think your third eye chakra is out of balance, ask yourself these 2 questions:

Do you tend to give your dream and fantasy life excessive freedom to wander wherever it might want to?

Are your decisions being directed mostly from the place of logic and rational mind, not allowing your imagination and intuition a chance for expression?

If you answered yes to the first question, your third eye chakra is most likely overactive.

If you answered yes to the second question, you are on the side of ‘The Intellectual’ archetype, with underactive third eye chakra.

Third Eye Awakening and Healing

Third eye chakra healing starts with restoring the balance between the left and right side of the brain.

When your third eye chakra starts to awaken, and you begin to open your third eye, both of your brain hemispheres go into full coherence.

Let’s have a quick look at the differences between both sides of your brain.

The left side of the brain is responsible for:

  • Analytical thoughts
  • Logic
  • Facts
  • Science & Math
  • Reasoning
  • Language and speech

Normally, 'left-brained' people tend to have underactive third-eye chakra

The right side of the brain takes care of:

  • Intuition
  • Imagination
  • Visualization
  • Creativity
  • Arts and music
  • Dreams

These are actually attributes of the third eye chakra, and people who are 'right-brained' should have fewer difficulties when it comes to awakening this center.However, to fully activate and awaken your third eye center, you have to utilize the power of your entire brain. Your ability to be insightful and creative is as important as being able to think clearly.

People with highly developed third eye chakras have the gift of inner sight (clairvoyance) and live from a place of deep trust.

Elders in traditional, tribal communities are the best representation of the healthy third eye chakra archetype as they have gathered lots of wisdom throughout their lives.
