The third eye chakra is our true inner self, our consciousness. It is the center of perception and command and directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. It balances the important and the unimportant, sorting meaning from data and impressions and commands the energy flow within the body. When the third eye chakra is in balance we can clearly see and understand the things around us. We are able to communicate with our internal thoughts better and our perception is higher. However, when it is out of balance or blocked you will find yourself confused, difficulty seeing clearly, and a hard time differentiating what is important and what is not. You may feel as if you do not have command of your thoughts. Physical symptoms can include headaches, ear aches, and vision problems. Fear not though, even if your third eye chakra is blocked or out of balance, indigo colored crystals can make it better.

Indigo is the color of an empty sky, of solitude, and reflection. It is a quiet color, one of mystery and wisdom, and judgment. Indigo is a soft color ray that is made for introspection, and crystals of this color can help you immensely in your quest for wisdom. Indigo is the color of virtue and maturity. The dark blue/purple crystals of indigo are used to treat imbalances of the third eye chakra. Meditate with an indigo crystal over your third eye to help alleviate blockages and imbalances.
