Your 7 chakras function as energy centres in your body and each one is linked to certain qualities, emotions and energies. This means that each of your 7 chakras impact your life, behaviour and decisions in some way. Essentially all of your chakras are related to career and if you want to explore an overview of how each of the 7 chakras impact your career and business decisions you can find an overview of each one here.
Now let us delve further into the third eye chakra and the way that it is related to career and our professional life. As all of our chakras are linked and impact us in some form or another. When one of our chakras is blocked or out of balance it will impact our life in many different ways. Because the third eye chakra is linked to your intuition and imagination it is especially important if you are starting your journey as a new business owner or changing careers to follow your passion.
Your third eye chakra is your sixth chakra and it is located in between the eyebrows. This chakra is also called anja chakra or brow chakra and it is represented by an indigo colour.
Spiritually the third eye chakra is very meaningful, as it is the last chakra in the physical body and represents our ability to transcend past the first 5 elements and access a higher consciousness. The concept of a “sixth sense” comes from the sixth chakra and it is spiritually where we access self-reflection and true wisdom and consciousness.
In the modern world and throughout everyday life these aspects translate to what we perceive as intuition, gut feeling and that little voice in the back of your mind.
Because the third eye chakra is so strongly connected with your intuition, blockages or imbalances in this energy center might mean that you are having trouble thinking clearly, you can’t seem to access your gut feeling and you have difficulties imagining a life outside of the one you are living right now. However if your sixth chakra is open and in balance you will find it easy to use visualisation and trust your intuition to guide you.
This can have an impact on your day-to-day work as it can show up as feelings of self-doubt and a lack of creativity and inspiration, and if you are considering a career change or launching your own business. Blockages in your third eye chakra can be exactly what is holding you back from taking the plunge.
If you get the sense that your intuition is trying to tell you something, but you find it hard to tune in and access this guidance, it might be a sign that your third eye chakra is blocked.
If your third eye chakra is blocked or out of balance it could manifest itself physically as tension in your forehead and headaches, or emotionally as feelings of self-doubt, anxiety and overthinking.
To balance your sixth chakra try physical practices like a facial massage using a gua sha tool or yoga poses like fish pose or plow pose to direct energy flow to the area. Or use practices like journaling or affirmations to help clear any blockages and help you access this power of intuition.
