Third Eye Chakra Information for Lapis Lazuli and Golden Pyrite Necklace
In the chakra philosophy, we have two eyes that look out at the world and a third eye that looks inward, hence the chakra located in the center of the forehead is called the third eye chakra. Functions in this chakra include insight, mental focus, intuition and memory. Have you ever tried to remember something and looked up, as if you could see into your own mind for the answer? This is also the area where our imagination lives. Consider how it feels when you're listening to someone reading you a story. You might feel a sort of disconnect from your body. Instead, your energy is highly concentrated in the forehead, as you imagine the story coming to life.
From this chakra, we can see the world as an observer. If you've ever sat in a crowd and found yourself "people watching", you were engaging with your third eye chakra. By being able to side step the drama of a situation and simply observe, you are able to "see" what's going on at a deeper level. When we stop worrying about how others "see" us, we are free to follow our intuition in the quest for finding greater purpose in life.
Common sayings that relate to the Third Eye Chakra: Having eyes in the back of your head, or a sixth sense.
