'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the third eye chakra, Ajna.

Ajna is located between the eyes, and is one of the three chakras of spirituality. It is responsible for our intuition and perception.

Its colour is indigo, and bija mantra is Aum or Sham.

Imbalances in the third eye chakra may manifest in:
Lack of clarity and/or vision.
An over-indulgence of fantasies and/or illusions.
Frequent headaches and/or migraines.
Problems with vision and/or feelings of dizziness.


To balance the third eye chakra, try:
Any form of meditation.
Including a range of purple/dark-blue foods in your diet. Think blueberries, plums, eggplant, cabbage etc.
Yoga postures that bring your head to the floor, ie. child's pose, shoulder stands etc.
