"For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding."
Proverbs 2:6 (KJV)
How do we know if the right thing is the right thing?
It can be hard to decipher what is right for us when we listen to everyone but ourselves. In our last blog post, we learned to communicate with others by healing the throat chakra. This blog post will discuss how the third eye chakra allows us to strengthen our intuition and rely on our inner wisdom.
The third eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the seven chakra system. It is in the middle of our forehead between our eyebrows. The purpose of the third eye chakra is to help strengthen our intuition. A blocked third eye chakra can physically manifest as headaches, migraines, and eye problems. Emotional symptoms are feelings of insignificance, lack of faith, and the inability to make decisions.
The third eye chakra focuses on one's intuition but, what is our intuition? Our intuition is the process that gives us the ability to know something directly without factual evidence. It is the little voice in the back of our head guiding us on the right path. An example of the third eye chakra is the Disney film Pinocchio. In the movie Pinocchio, we see small bits of the third eye chakra embedded into the film. Pinocchio relies on Jiminy Cricket (his intuition) to tell him what's right or wrong. It's when Pinocchio ignores his intuition that problems arise for him. We have all played the role of Pinocchio a few times in our lives. We chose to ignore our intuition about a person or situation because we believe that it's for us.
When we listen to our intuition, everything in life seems to click. We can move forward with our decisions and live out our purpose comfortably.
