Do you struggle with trusting your gut instinct?
Do you suffer from going with your gut feeling? If so, you may need to learn how to go with your intuition by opening your Third Eye Chakra. The Third Eye Chakra is all about being able to foresee into the future! When this chakra is opening you feel very inspired and you are able to see with perfect clarity! The third eye center, which is located on your forehead between the eyebrows, is your center for intuition and vision into and around obstacles 1. Trusting our inner gut instinct is everything! If we can’t be intuitive in nature, then it will be hard to function or even do a keto diet. If something gives you an eery feeling, then go with it. In my life, I have really learned to value my gut feeling. There have been many times when I was uncertain of something but there was something that told me to go in a certain direction. I found that I usually was right in those times!
Overview of the Third Eye Chakra
The other name for this chakra is Brow Chakra or Ajna, in Sanskrit. This chakra is known as the control center because it focuses on cultivating a strong and independent mind. It contains the mental applications we need for creating happy and wholesome lives. It is not usually active until our mid-thirties when we have accrued some life experience to weigh against the ideas we ingested at an early age2. Our past experiences in life are really what mold is into opening this chakra. Before you can open up this chakra, it is important for you to examine your self-worth. This hold true to the expression, ” Love yourself before you can love others.”
How do you know if your Third Eye Chakra is blocked?
If you have feelings of self- doubt or feel as if you are worthless, you may need Third Eye Chakra opening. If you deny your natural state of being or carry a lot of fear in regard to your own inner wisdom, this chakra may also be blocked. Again, as mentioned earlier, the inability to see the future and lack of intuition is another way you can tell that this chakra may be out of balance.
Medical conditions of a Third Eye Chakra
When your Third Eye Chakra is blocked, you can manifest some physical dysfunctions. Some of these may include brain tumors, neurological disturbances, deafness, full spinal difficulties, seizures, headaches, etc3. The Third Eye Chakra is tied in with the pituitary gland, which is located between the eyebrows. It is also called the “third eye” because it is the seat of intuition and clairvoyance4.
It turns out that the pituitary gland has a lot to do with experience, imagination, and clairvoyance. Your pituitary gland is pivotal for monitoring all of the other glands of the body. It is so important! When it is not working right, you can experience thyroid problems, adrenal or menstruation problems. These also may be indirect conditions of a blocked Third Eye Chakra.
Never stop your medical treatments, but do things to help balance your Third Eye Chakra
Like I have discussed in my prior podcasts, I am warning you of things that can potentially occur if any of these chakras are not in order. I would never suggest you stop any treatments if you’re under the care of a conventional medicine provider. However, do things naturally to open up your chakras or see a holistic practitioner for herbal remedies to help. You never know, improving your mental well-being by doing the intervention I mention may serve to help you a great deal.
What can cause your Third Eye Chakra to be off-kilter?
Failure to meet high standards
If you have felt that you have never lived up to make a lot of money or perfect grades in college, then your Third Eye Chakra needs opening. Unfortunately, these patterns get integrated into your mind, and you have to learn to release the past. Stop judging yourself! Think about how far you have come in life thus far. If it helps you, make a list of all of your accomplishments. Put that list where your desk is at work, on the refrigerator, or in your purse. Look at it daily so you can remember how successful you really have been.
Inability to feel good about yourself or inability to clearly see how you can complete obstacles
If you have struggled with self- esteem, then you may need Third Eye Chakra opening. I think that self-esteem coincides with the inability to see how you can complete any obstacle in your life. If you lack self-esteem obviously you won’t be able to see how you can get a promotion or graduate college. This all has to do with clairvoyance as well. This chakra is called the third eye because it is literally an extra eye for seeing vision into the future. If you can’t do this then it will absolutely throw off this chakra.
Lack of that gut instinct
As I mentioned earlier, we need to always listen to our solar plexus! If something just doesn’t look, smell or feel right, then go with it. I have experienced this several times as a clinician. I had a patient that came in several years ago and he was having just a little bit of belly pain and complained of constipation. His symptoms were very vague and did not seem acute, however, something told me that he had something bad going on. I just had an inner feeling that he needed to go to the hospital now and get a CAT Scan. There was something about the way he presented, which told me this was not belly pain from constipation. Fortunately, I did send him to the hospital for a CAT scan and then after that we learned his appendix had ruptured.
The crazy thing was that he did not have the symptoms where I would have thought that Thank goodness I sent him or else he could have died. That day, I was so glad that I had listened to my intuition. After that, I never second guess myself again.
Now, you may not be a medical provider, but your intuition is so important on a daily basis. I think sometimes we make a decision based on our gut instinct alone! Such as when we avoid eating a certain food or choose to go a certain direction when driving. Listen to your gut always! Not only will you be glad you did, but you will experience Third Eye Chakra opening.
Third Eye Chakra balancing
Now, I am going to go through ways to experience Third Eye Chakra opening. You can do all of the interventions I suggest or just one of them. Whatever you choose, it is up to you!
Trust your intuition with meditation
The first one I am going to mention is meditation, which is perfect for opening the Third Eye Chakra. Remember, meditation can be done anywhere and can be versatile. You can do a walking meditation, sitting, or lying in your bed. My favorite meditation is laying down in bed and listening to Solffregio Frequencies. All I do is take about 20 minutes of my time ( you can do less), put on the frequencies, and close my eyes. I like to use an eye mask to improve the relaxation experience.
I can not emphasize the importance of meditation. It is so calming for the sympathetic nervous system. Every day we are faced with life’s many challenges and our adrenal glands stay revved up. Over time, this is terrible for your health as it leads to an excess in cortisol, which can lead to other problems. You need to calm your nervous system and take time out for yourself. As I mentioned before, even if you don’t want to meditate, take a short nap. Calm your body and mind. You deserve this!
Incorporate pineal activation during this meditation
While you are meditating, see if you can imagine a small violet flame surrounded by a deep indigo glowing halo in your third eye center. Feel the light move out past your heavy eyelids and onward to the sides of your face. As the light illuminates your head, visualize the flame moving behind your eyeballs in the center of your brain. Intend for the flame to reach your pineal gland, even if you can’t determine its exact position5.
When you are looking at this flame, try to notice it’s appearance. It may change color or grow. Imagine that this flame is helping with your intuition and allowing you to be clairvoyant. Release your old mental patterns, where you feel as if you don’t live up to standards or that your gut instinct is wrong. After this visual flame has burned for a few minutes during your meditation, put your hands together in prayer position in the center of your brows where your Third Eye Chakra is located. This will help to energetically activate this center.
Affirmations are great because they are nice words we say to ourselves, which can mentally help to change us. In my last podcast, I spoke about an actual study that was done which proved that affirmations physiologically activate reward centers in our brain. Some affirmations for Third Eye Chakra opening, include, ” I think the very best of myself in all situations, at all times”, ” I open myself to know my inner guidance and deepest wisdom”, and I align my consciousness with the source of all life. When you say these words, make sure you stop and focus on how and why you are saying them. You want to say them with the best of intentions!
Using essential oils and gemstones for Third Eye Chakra opening
Gemstones are excellent for helping to open up this chakra. Not only are they good for meditation, but you can carry them around in your pocket or purse to absorb any negative energies. Protective Crystals & Gemstones repel away negative energies with a force field as the magnet does. Inside of your energy field, also called Aura, the crystal amplifies its protective energy to push away negative; because it is a protective crystal, The gemstones that pertain to this chakra include Lapis Lazuli, amethyst, fluorite, tanzanite, clear quartz, and star sapphire6.
Essential oils can help open up your chakras because they may enhance your feeling of well-being. There are certain oils that you should use which are tailored to the Third Eye Chakra. These include lavender, frankincense, and sandalwood 7. As I’ve mentioned before, I like to take the oils and rub them between my hand along with the gemstones. Remember to always cleanse your gemstones at least once a month and especially after you first get them.
Opening your Third Eye Chakra with yoga
Yoga is hands down the best way to open up this chakra. For the Third Eye Chakra, the focus is to see things from all perspectives- all poses right-side up, upside down, twisted or eye closed8. Focusing on forward bends or and of the child’s poses will also serve to stimulate this chakra. If you aren’t sure how to fit yoga into your day, do not worry. You can just do it from home in as little as fifteen minutes. The important thing is to be consistent every day and show up for yourself. If you try to do it at the same time every day, it will become ingrained in you and become a habit.
Other Third Eye Chakra opening tools
Focus on foods and colors to open the Third Eye Chakra
The foods that are associated with the Third Eye Chakra include black currants, blueberries, blackberries, eggplants, prunes, beets, and rainbow chard9. If any food has a dark blue or indigo hint, then eat when focusing on opening up this chakra. The same goes with clothing. You want to find clothes that are dark blue and indigo and add to your wardrobe. As I am saying this, I am thinking about a dark blue shirt that I haven’t worn in a while. I think that I may pull it out and see if it will strengthen my intuition and clairvoyance!
Remove fluoride from your diet
Do you filter your water? Did you realize that fluoride is terrible for your pineal gland? If you drink fluoridated water it will calcify the pineal gland which will throw your Third Eye Chakra off balance10. I would recommend removing fluoride from your water by using a water purifying system. I have a Propur water filter system and I have been very happy with it. Overall, it is important to filter your water anyways because pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, and other toxic elements can be found in your water source. Yikes!

Keto diet and Third Eye Chakra opening
Overall, the Keto diet pairs very well with the Third Eye chakra opening. You may wonder how the Keto diet can help with clairvoyance, intuition, and self-esteem. Again, as I’ve mentioned in previous podcasts, it all comes down to those feel-good ketones which are beneficial for your brain function. The brain actually prefers ketones instead of glucose. When you are making ketones, your mind is sharper, which will help you to see into the future and want to go with your intuition. This in turn will affect your self-confidence.
As I before in my other podcasts, the ketogenic diet (KD) is a low-carb diet that substantially changes the energetic matrix of the body including the brain. Preclinical studies, case reports, and case series have demonstrated antidepressant and mood-stabilizing effects of KD. When you choose to follow a Keto diet, you are optimizing your brainpower, which in turn will optimize the pineal and pituitary gland. If these glands are optimized, then your Third Eye Chakra will be more willing to open up.
Start the Keto diet today and start balancing your chakras
In conclusion, I am so glad that you are listening to my podcasts to learn about your chakras. They are so important for your well-being and my mission is to show you how the chakras are connected to the Keto diet. When you choose the Keto diet, mentally you will feel the effects and it will show up in your chakra alignment. I want you to improve your energetic body and live better! The Keto diet alone is not good enough; you need to do other interventions that I mention in these podcasts to help with your chakra balance.
