The Third Eye Chakra and Crystals for the Third Eye Chakra 0

The Third Eye Chakra's primary function is concerned with the understanding and analysis of reality. The Third Eye Chakra is inward looking rather than expressive in its nature. The eyes and the conscious workings of the brain are directly related to the Third Eye Chakra, whose main function is to make sense of the raw information received from the sense organs. It also works with memory and planning, by receiving and analysing information from the remembered past and the projected future. The Third Eye Chakra is the focus of our personality, for our view of reality and who we really are and how we see ourselves in relation to the universe.



When this Chakra looses its balance with the system as a whole, the mind has a tendency to retreat from reality into the self constructive realms of fantasy and delusion. The Third Eye Chakra needs integrated balance and a firm grounded energy if it is to be of real use to us. With an active but imbalanced Third Eye Chakra, it is possible to see visions, receive messages from the subtle senses (like clairvoyance), and to be bombarded by intriguing psychic information. Unless there is a balance and equal emphasis on the energies of the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras, it is almost impossible to determine what is valid and useful.

The Crown Chakra and Crystals for the Crown Chakra 1

The Crown Chakra is our connection to the whole of creation. Aspects of this wholeness are filtered, transformed and utilised by the rest of the Chakra System. When the Crown Chakra looses its balance, a shadow is cast over the whole system. There is a feeling that something is not quite right, Feelings of alienation and depression, and of a weight descending hat makes one listless, exhausted and prone to boredom, all signal a possible Crown Chakra imbalance. Physically, apart from its links with the pituitary gland which it may subtly energise, the Crown Chakra directly affects the functions of the higher brain, the cerebrum. A lack of balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain can cause confusion and coordination difficulties both physically and mentally.

When balanced the Crown Chakra increases the ability to understand things in a wider context. This allows the individual to become more intuitive and more likely to act appropriately, and thus success in action increases with the expenditure of less effort. The mind becomes quieter and is able to focus on its tasks. This smooth flow of energy makes meditative practices more fulfilling. In these circumstances, the healing potential within the body is at its greatest, stress can be released, and tissue repair quickened dramatically.

The Throat Chakra and Crystals for the Throat Chakra 1

The Throat Chakra is concerned with communication. It allows us to transmit our thoughts, ideas and desires. It is also the means by which we express our creativity. Sore throats and stiff necks can often be indications that there is a problem with some level of communication. Often something is being held back by force of will that would be better verbalised in some way, or a desire to express individuality is also being stifled. Without this natural flow of communicated energy travelling out into the world, other sorts of energies also slow down and there is a danger of stagnation. At the Physical level, thyroid activity may be disrupted, leading to states of either lethargy or hyperactivity. Muscle stiffness in the neck, shoulders and jaw results in a lack of energy flow in those areas. Chronic tension in the jaw can lead to headaches.

On an emotional level, Throat Chakra problems can lead to an inability to express and feel emotions at a deeper level. This dissociation can lead to withdrawal and isolation or, alternatively can create a chatterbox who doesn't feel comfortable unless talking, but doesn't communicate any true feeling.

The Heart Chakra and Crystals for the Heart Chakra 0

The Heart Chakra, when balanced gives a sense of calm , clear-sightedness and tolerance of others. We know where we want to go and can hold our own ground as well. When the Heart Chakra is out of balance it is easy to lose our own understanding of our relationship with the world, becoming possessive or obsessive, constantly seeking reassurance, experiencing self doubt and lack of self worth. These imbalances can lead to cold, emotionless power seeking, intolerance, prejudice and cruelty. On the other hand there can also be an overwhelming sense of personal responsibility for others problems, leading to desperate self-sacrifice and guilt that undermines all sense of self worth.

The Heart Chakra is a vital healing location where the swings of polarised emotions, feelings, hopes and wishes can be evened out and a positive calm can be restored in which to re-establish a life supporting relationship with the world.
