Brow Chakra

Chakra Six - Exploring the Major Chakras

Brow Chakra

Quartz Crystal Point on Third Eye Chakra

Balancing Your Chakras

The Brow Chakra is associated with the color indigo. It is also often referred to as the third eye or the mind center. It is our avenue to wisdom - learning from our experiences and putting them in perspective.

Our ability to separate reality from fantasy or delusions is in connection with the healthfulness of this chakra. Achieving the art of detachment beyond "small mindedness" is accomplished through developing impersonal intuitive reasoning.

It is through an open brow chakra that visual images are received.
