Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; 6th Chakra or the Third Eye Chakra

Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; 6th Chakra or the Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra; 6th Chakra (Ajna) - Intuition, Wisdom, Logic & E.S.P
The sixth chakra (also called the 'third eye' or brow chakra) is located at the pituitary/pineal level in the center of the brain (not the center of the forehead), and is also known as "the Third Eye". This chakra governs spiritual direction and wisdom. It is the seat of dreams, inner vision, and the spiritual life. Its color is indigo or shades of dark blue and deals with self-mastery, wisdom, opening doors to the subconscious, restoring long-buried soul memories, bridging the finite and infinite, assisting and guiding our inner journeys to spiritual or cosmic knowledge. Indigo also deals with connecting to a higher understanding, self-acceptance, and intuition, as well as spiritual and celestial love. The 6th chakra is the seat of all your intuitive abilities: inner seeing, inner hearing, inner feeling and inner knowing. The physiological functions of the third eye chakra or 6th chakra are related to vision, the eyes, and the pituitary gland, the 1st cervical vertebrae, endocrine system, sinuses, ears, and face, and metaphysically affects; the energy center of intuition, imagination, and creative visualization.
This chakra is about seeing, both literally and intuitively. It gives us insight. When it is open we are very self aware, perceptive and may have heightened clairvoyance. We are better at healing, more sure of the future, and tend to make better choices. This is the chakra of visions and dreams and imagination.
If this chakra is closed, we tend to not think for ourselves and are easily confused. We may rely overmuch on others for guidance and direction. We may be without purpose. Physically we can have a depressed thyroid and respiratory trouble. Blocked or low energy third eye chakra may promote sypmtoms such as: difficulty sleeping, problems with hearing, skin disorders, overwhelming need for balance, longing for purification, or the inability to help oneself.
Your intuition and insight isn't just about knowing thing ahead of time or making deep prophecies, it's mostly about being able to see the truth about yourself and others.
Archangel Uriel: Inner Peace, Harmony, Illumination, Brow Chakra
Archangel Uriel is the angel of peace and salvation. His role is to shine light where there is darkness, and help us to shine light into the lives of others when and where we can. He illuminates our path. He helps bring a peaceful resolution to problems. He gives understanding and knowledge of why things are like they are, he helps us trust in the plan that the Universe has for us so we can know it really is in Divine Order (especially when things appear to be going wrong). He helps us turn our worst disappointments into our greatest blessings. Call upon him when you feel incapable of inner peace and stillness. He helps us release resentment, anger, and learn forgiveness. He gently teaches us that those energies are really only harmful to ourselves. The Third Eye and healing are also the responsibility of Archangels Raphael and Mary. They help keep us healthy through our emotions and feelings, bringing clarity to situations through another perspective (our Third Eye). I love how this explanation from describes Third Eye chakra and how it can be used to connect with your angels,
"Think of your 6th Chakra as a radio tuner that allows you to "tune in" to the frequencies and vibrations of your Angels. When you tune a radio to a specific frequency, you will hear a specific radio station - classical, country, rock, and so on, that are being broadcast on those frequencies. Each Angel has a specific range of frequency, or vibrational quality, that you can learn to tune into with practice. You may also find it helpful to listen to one of the free Angel Blessing Circle Audios .

Suzanne Bovenizer has excellent advice,
"Essential oils can play a big role for physical manifestations of third eye dysfunctionings. Headaches and migraines can be related to a stressed and tense third eye chakra. Common essential oils for headaches are lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, jasmine, peppermint, hyssop, melissa, chamomile, marjoram and rosemary . A cool compress with essential oils added can be laid on the forehead and over the eyes to reduce the heat and tension of tight inter-cranial membranes. Lavender can also be rubbed directly on the temples to soothe and de-stress the restrictive membranes. Oils that help eye problems like sties or conjunctivitis are tea tree, lavender, clary sage, geranium, lemon, chamomile and rose, also green myrtle hydrosol . Adding essential oils to a bowl of steaming water and deeply inhaling the steam can help sinus infections and sinusitis. Oils recommended for steam inhalations are eucalyptus, tea tree, cajuput, lavender, peppermint, rosemary, pine, and sandalwood . These oils can also be added to water in a neti pot and poured through the nasal cavity, but a very dilute solution must be used, as the oils are very concentrated and could burn the tender mucosal tissue."

How to Use Essential Oils to Balance the Third Eye Chakra;
First, choose a blend that speaks only to you. Peruse the oils listed for the throat chakra and notice which oils you are drawn to. See this page of my Root Chakra article for more specific instructions on how to use essential oils to balance the third eye chakra, as the method described there is useful for all the chakras.
Sounds and Notes for Balancing the Third Eye Chakra:
The note that helps balance the chakra is "A", and the sound intonation is "aye" as in eye vowel sound. I've also read that; "eh" as in face is the sound intonation to use as well as the long eeee vowel sound . Whichever works best for you is fine. Chakra balancing can be achieved by using many different methods, all equally effective. It really is a matter of choice which you prefer. Methods such as meditation, energy work, light work, or Reiki are also helpful when used in conjunction with essential oils, crystals, gemstones, and sound healing techniques such as tuning forks, toning, and humming which may be incorporated into your chakra healing sessions. See AC's own Crystal Kennedy 's article on using sound healing techniques to balance the chakras .
