Healthy Energy

If your THIRD EYE chakra is open and healthy, you are a person who exists beautifully within the ebb and flow of synchronicity. This is due to your ability to hear and follow your inner guidance which makes you tremendously intuitive.

Your thoughts may easily manifest themselves as physical realities in a very short time due to your talent of visualization. You perceive the levels of reality beyond the senses and may channel this into profound healing or artistic abilities.

Blocked Energy

Blockages in the THIRD EYE chakra mean you have the potential to be a cold intellectual who trusts only reason and logic and is manipulative when it comes to getting what you want.
