Working with Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye Chakra, or Ajna Chakra in Sanskrit is translated as “beyond wisdom”, “perceive” or “command”. This chakra, the sixth of the seven main chakras in our body, and is located in between the eyebrows.

It guides us towards becoming who we truly are and what we want to experience in this life.

As the centre of our intuition, a balanced Ajna Chakra allows us to tap into our inner knowledge and provides an open perspective on life.

When the flow of energy in our sixth chakra is strong and steady, our thoughts are clear and calm, we feel a deep spiritual connection with life (not just our own as a single unit), and are able to choose what we see as our reality.

The Ajna Chakra is represented by the indigo color and an inverted triangle within a duo-petaled lotus flower.

It is connected to the earthy element of light, which is associated with the notion of “all in one” or “wholesomeness”, and supported by the mantra “I see”.

Stones Connected with the Third Eye Chakra

Stones and crystals are believed to have healing properties, especially when we put a healing intention around their space.

This is why stones and gems are treated with great care and are also treated as living beings or spirits. They are often used when working with the chakra system or other holistic and spiritual practices.

The color associated with the Third Eye Chakra is indigo, or a deep blue-purple.

Therefore the stones and crystals which are known to be used in Ajna Chakra practices are within this palet range as well.

Indigo is traditionally known to balance, nurture and awaken the Third Eye – our inner vision and wisdom. Below you will find a list of some of the Third Eye Chakra stones.
