The third eye is the boundary between human 
and divine consciousness. 
It is where the unconscious and conscious meet. 
The phone rings, and you know who it is...that is your third eye. 

If your 6th chakra is depleted, you don't trust your intuition. 
You have fixed and narrow thinking. 
If your 6th chakra is in excess you can become disorganized, disoriented, spacey, and ungrounded. 
Feeling lost, melodramatic, confused, and cynical 
are all signs of an imbalanced third eye chakra.

When our third eye chakra is in balance we 
trust our intuition. 
We recognize our soul's true path. 
We observe without judgement. 
We are self aware and have heightened clairvoyance.

There are many ways to heal and 
balance your third eye.
You can try one or 
combine many for more beneficial results.
