If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!
Your Third Eye Chakra is located on your forehead, between your eyes (this is just to locate on a map, but in reality, it’s “inside” you so just think of it in that general area). This is the 6th chakra, right under the Crown. It is associated with the color Indigo, a deep blue.
The sounds associated with the Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra aligns with the key of A. Again, frequency options for tuning this chakra are available but they vary greatly. Here is a video for the Third Eye Chakra:
(hint: hum along with this. Maybe put lyrics to it)
There are many other specific Third Eye meditations you can find on YouTube, but some are long (up to several hours) so I didn’t include them here.
How will I know if my Third Eye Chakra isn’t aligned?
You might have actual physical issues in this area, including sinus problems, vision issues or headaches. Again, PLEASE go to a doctor if you have serious issues! I am not (and will never) advocate skipping the doctor to meditate. I believe both have an important role in our well-being. If you are losing your eyesight, see an eye doctor. If you have some weird, temporary issues that your doctors can’t diagnose, this might help.
Aside from the physical, you might feel like you have a hard time making decisions. Third Eye is linked to intuition, so you might feel a lack of creativity or imagination in your songs (or life). You might go the opposite way and be so judgmental and attached to an outcome that it inhibits you. For example: you are positive you’re the most talented musician at open mic night and nobody else deserves to be there. While this may sometimes be *true*, it’s not something you want to think or believe. Or, you may have a deal fall through with a shady label or manager and you were so convinced it was right for you that you become a little obsessed over it. A balanced Third Eye allows you to see things for what they are.
What can I do to align it?
There are many options for each chakra, including food, clothing, colors, etc. I get into it more in my workbook but here are a few quick tips:
- Wear the color Indigo (dark blue or purple) and light candles of this color
- Work on your intuition. Listen to your inner voice more closely. This is not a quick or easy fix, so this will need to be a regular practice. Here are some tips, but there are many others you can find if you don’t like these!
- Try a Third Eye Chakra meditation
- Listen to songs in the key of A
What songs are good for the Third Eye Chakra?
The Third Eye Chakra shares a lot of traits with the Crown Chakra in terms of spirituality and intuition, so you could technically use songs for both. However, the keys are different and that is important. I would recommend jazz music for the Third Eye, because a lot of jazz is based on improvisation which is great for intuition. If jazz isn’t your thing, you could do new age, trance, spiritual, or really anything you like. The following songs fit these categories and are in the key of A:
Bastille, “Pompeii” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NY
Just a cool, new age style song that would make a good Third Eye meditation IMO.
Pink Floyd, “Time” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwYX52BP2Sk
What, you thought I only knew about current pop songs? Please.
Evanescence, “My Immortal” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anLPw0Efmo
This is a great one because it’s gentle to listen to and the words work well for a Third Eye imbalance.
a-ha, “Take On Me” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djV11Xbc914
If you can’t get into this song you’re probably dead inside.
Bob Marley, “Three Little Birds” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaGUr6wzyT8
Hopefully this shows you that a). you can listen to any type of music for your chakras, and b). I know most types of music.
Any Third Eye Blind Song (Jk, but they are have rumored to name their band based on this idea). But here’s a song they have in the key of A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3z-oyva5fE
Whatever your song preferences are, you can find a ton in the key of A here: http://www.songkeyfinder.com/songs-in-key/a-major?page=1
