DESCRIPTION / INSTRUCTIONS
In New Age spirituality, the Third Eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance.
The Third Eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe Chakras and Auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers. Ajna or Third-Eye Chakra is the sixth primary Chakra according to Hindu tradition.
The Ajna Chakra is positioned in the stomata, directly behind the center of the forehead. Ajna is associated with the Third Eye on the forehead.
It is also sometimes associated with the Pineal gland, which regulates the circadian rhythm, and is related to an actual light-sensitive "Third Eye" (Parietal eye) found in some lizards, amphibians, and fish.
It is also sometimes associated with the Pituitary gland, the master of all endocrine glands, whose secretions control all the other endocrine glands. Not surprising, the Third Eye Chakra is associated with the Pituitary gland, the brain and nervous system.
It is also connected to the Sensory systems through the eyes, ears and nose.
People with vital and balanced Third Eye Chakra are open, perceptive and intuitive. They tend to draw from and use information from all of their senses and are easily able to integrate.
They are comfortable with new ideas, and their beliefs often evolve with their experiences. Having an open and unconstrained Third Eye Chakra, they are typically at ease with psychic, energetic and other spiritual concepts and experiences.
People with a weak or imbalanced Third Eye often remark that they feel disjointed, incomplete (not whole) or unintegrated. Third Eye Chakra imbalances tend to physically manifest in the central nervous system and related physiology. This can include nervous disorders, learning disabilities, spinal issues, strokes, brain tumors, vision and eye problems, hearing issues and deafness. Problems associated with pituitary disfunction are also present with Third Eye imbalances.
In Tibetan Buddhism, this Chakra is at the end of the central channel, which runs up the body to the top of the head, and then over and down, terminating at the forehead. The two side channels continue onwards towards the two nostrils and end there. This center is frequently depicted in artwork as the Third Eye, and is used in various meditations.
According to the Kabbalah, there are two sephiroth located on the sixth level, associated with the left and right parts of the face. They are called Chokmah (Wisdom), and Binah (Understanding), it is at these points that the two side pillars of mercy and severity terminate, while the central pillar carries on rising to kether, the crown.
Essential oils, have been an integral part of the spiritual practices of many religions and cultures throughout history.
Essential oils have amazing subtle (energetic or vibrational) qualities. These subtle substances are also relevant to energy work because energetic imbalances tend to eventfully manifest in the physical body.
Energetic imbalances and other health issues are complex. Typically when one Chakra goes out of balance, others do too. And, Chakras tend to be just one part of the energy and holistic puzzle.
For this mixture we have chosen a combination of these essential oils:
Sandalwood essential oil calms the fire of sexual desire and brings a feeling of completeness, which eases the process of learning the meaning of True Love. Sandalwood has been used in cultural and spiritual ceremonies for centuries.
Frankincense essential oil has been used to awaken our spiritual awareness and connect with spirit for 5000 years or more. It will help us release parts of our ego which hold us back from connecting with our soul, as well as feelings of unworthiness and insecurity.
Use Frankincense essential oil during meditation to connect with spirit and stay centered in yoga or meditation sessions.
And Sweet Lemon essentail oil scent brings peace and joy to the soul. Specific essential oil isn't always good for a particular Chakra. It depends on the manifestation of the imbalance and the specific intentions.
Some of the more common essential oils include.
Classic the Sixth Chakra essential oils:
Galbanum (Ferula galbaniflua or Ferula gummosa)
Put these mix oils (about 4 drops) in an amber or cobalt blue 10ml glass bottle and fill the the remainder of the bottle with a carrier oil (Jojoba, Almond, Marula). Cover and shake gently to integrate the oils.
Use for inhalation. Or anoint yourself or rub into the head, between the eyes and full face (cheeks, eyes, hair) or rub in to the total body.
After 6 month this mixture can smell better than first day, it depends how long we take a time to mix all ingredients together. Essential oils need a time, and they will show us those real qualities.
