If you’ve been to a new age bookstore, a yoga class, or a meditation workshop, chances are you’re heard or seen something about chakras. You might have wondered…
What is a Chakra, and Why Are They Important?
The word Chakra means “wheel” and refers to the energy points in your body. You’ve probably heard me say that everything and everyone – living and dead – is made up of energy. Keeping that energy healthy and balanced starts with your chakras, so it’s important that these spinning disks of energy stay open and aligned.
The Chakras control every aspect of your actions, from your psychic abilities to how you digest food. There are seven main chakras that run along your body – from the base of your spine to the top of your head. Each one is associated with a color, and each serves a specific purpose and is tied to a group of nerves, major organs, and various aspects of your emotional and physical well-being.
A Very Basic List of the 7 Chakras and What They Do:
- The Root Chakra is at the very base of the spine. It’s associated with the color red, and is related to your physical identity, strength and stability.
- The Sacral Chakra is a couple of inches below the navel. Depicted as an orange sphere, it is associated with sexuality and creativity.
- The Solar Plexus Chakra is just above the Sacral Chakra, represented by the color yellow. It’s all about confidence and self-esteem.
- The Heart Chakra, is an emerald-green chakra located just above the heart. Not surprisingly, it represents love and connection.
- The Throat Chakra, blue in color, is located in the throat and connected to your ability to communicate verbally.
- The Third-Eye Chakra. A deep indigo, this chakra is centered right above your eyes and is the source of your intuition and psychic gifts.
- Crown Chakra. At the very top of your head, you’ll find the violet or white Crown Chakra. Considered the chakra of enlightenment, this chakra keeps you connected to your spirituality and your greater purpose.
Opening the Third Eye Chakra.
You may have heard that everyone has psychic ability or psychic senses. If that’s true (and trust me, it is!) then why isn’t everyone sensitive and tuned in? For starters, to maximize your intuition, it’s important that the third eye chakra stay clear and balanced.
The third eye controls your psychic ability and intuition and can even lead to out-of-body experiences and astral travel. It’s also sometimes referred to as your sixth sense because it’s developed by developing your psychic abilities and intuition.
Since this chakra is physically located on the head, when it’s blocked or unbalanced you can experience headaches, issues with sight or concentration, and hearing problems. People who have trouble listening to reality (who seem to “know it all”) or who are not in touch with their intuition may also have a block. But, when it’s open and in alignment this chakra allows you to follow their intuition and be able to see the big picture.
I can’t see my chakras, so how do I know if they’re balanced?
You can tell when your chakras are “off.” You feel frazzled, flustered, drained, and may even be having health issues. The good news is, like a lot of spiritual ideas, what seems complicated is actually pretty simple to manage. Anything that allows you to be calm, focused, and in-the-moment can positively impact your chakras. So, meditation, yoga, walks in nature, eating well, not drinking and smoking too much, and being aware of your feelings instead of pushing them aside are all critical to a balanced chakra and a healthy life.
Your chakras are attached energetically, and while many people have one that seems to impact them the most, they all matter. However, we’re here to talk about how to enhance your intuition, and to do that, you’ll want to spend some effort specifically targeting and activating your third chakra. You’ll need to meditate on the third eye chakra daily for several weeks or months. Meditation is a key part of developing your psychic ability and being able to align with your body, mind, and spirit.
Opening the Third Eye Chakra
Start by sitting quietly for a few minutes each day. Once you’ve regulated your breathing, begin focusing on the middle of your forehead. Picture a bright indigo blue ball centered above your eyes, rotating in a clockwise direction. That’s your third eye. As you breathe in and out, relax and focus on the area. While you’re in this position, it’s time to imagine your chakra opening up, releasing your psychic ability.
When you get in the habit of focusing on your third eye through meditation, you should notice a deeper level of insights and awareness as you go about your day. To take things one step further, exercise and test your psychic muscles whenever you can. Keep a dream journal and jot down what you remember about your dreams and what you think they mean. You can experiment with automatic writing or making psychic predictions using tarot cards by yourself. Then share what you write or predict with others so they can weigh in!
Everyone Needs Intuition.
Intuition is real, and it serves a very practical purpose. It can help you make better choices and be safer, happier, and more connected to others. With a basic understanding of the chakras, and particularly your Third Eye chakra, it’s easy to tap into this natural gift through meditation or other mindful practices. I hope you’ll give it a try!
Thank you I been running away from my psych abilities it scares me sometimes. I need some guidance into this. I know my grandfather is by me. I seemed held up by running away.
This reading really helped. I’ve recently been having dreams about pregnancy/ baby’s and my sister has had one about me and my boyfriend it involved a baby. Could this mean something!
Thank you I been running away from my psych abilities it scares me sometimes. I need some guidance into this. I know my grandfather is by me. I seemed held up by running away. I know I have a message to share for the good of others.
Thank you Matt. I believe and needed to know how a n d where to start. I can start now. ❤
I just wondered if those in spirit have confirmed the existence of the chakras to you?
What do they say about other New Age ideas? How many of them are valid?
Thank you so very much..I have been on my road for a very long time. My intuition pours forth words in my poetry I do not think only write what comes from my mind. I guess you would call that inspiration. I have the knowledge of knowing, now that i am 81 years old. I live in a world flowing free with tranquility.
I know -I dream and I have a good intuition- but seems it attracts trouble. The dreams help me know – this too shall pass. But my son, who just passed – I spoke and hugged him a few days before . With Covid there’s no contact and I was miles away. I know it all exists, but not clear how.
my name is Teresa but people call me Teri …I just started following you on Facebook a month or so ago and you’re freaking awesome every time I watch you I get filled up with energies that you would not believe!! I’ve always been told that I’m like a huge well of energy and everybody comes and gets what they need which is no problem except when I’m empty… I have found that there are certain people that just being around them fills my “well” ( for lack of a better word) right to the top and you’re one of those people!! And for that I would like to say thank you because it’s been a long time since I’ve been around anybody like that when I look at you you literally glow!!!
I have a question I I’d like to bounce off you, throughout my life I’ve been around people some I didn’t even know and I don’t know how to explain except I’ll tell them things and usually it’s what they need to hear at that point in their life and it’s not always what they want to hear either LOL but when I’m done I freaking have no idea what it was I said to them it’s like it wasn’t me talking I know that sounds like weird but it seems to be happening more and more lately what’s your take on that I’ve been told throughout my life that I’m bipolar a. D. D. blah blah blah and it wasn’t until I started counseling that I found out I was misdiagnosed and that I have something called sensory input disorder. In a nutshell I just don’t process things like other people do. about 15 years back I had a woman come up to me you and said she needed to talk to me for a minute I never met this person before and she goes on to tell me that I was blessed with a gift and I need to not be afraid of it that I wasn’t just a weirdo I had to embrace it of running from it to listen to it learn from it and share it with others at that time I was like okay and quite honestly a little freaked out by her she had a really strong energy about her she then said she had to go gave me her phone number and said if I needed to talk to give her a call anytime I later found out that she was a Shoshone Indian Medicine Woman who is highly regarded in our community. I never did call her, at that time I was all messed up really bad on drugs and stuff so I just thought yeah whatever..sorry this is such a long comment but you seem to be a kind of person I could ask and you would make sense of it (get it sense LOL. )
I don’t know if you can even respond to this but if you have any input I would so so greatly appreciate it !!!
oh before I forget congratulations on the upcoming nuptials and of course I’ll be watching thanks for being you and sharing you with all of us you freaking Rock dude!!! Hope your online sessions aren’t already filled im going to go see now and book one if available…
Thanks again for sharing your gift with the world you truely are amazing!

Matt, I think you are wonderful and I love listening to you. I have had many interesting experiences in my life that I didn’t feel I had control over such as things coming to me in dreams that came to pass later on. My grandmother always spoke of the third eye and her ability to detect someone’s “light” as their own or not. As I have gotten older I seem to have lost whatever ability I once had. I don’t dream as much (or maybe I just don’t remember once I wake up). It would be so interesting to sit down with you but I can just imagine how busy your schedule must be now, especially since you just got married! I am so happy for you both and wish you a long, happy and fulfilling marriage. My wonderful husband and I celebrated 39 years together in July, and the years have gone by so fast! You are at the very beginning of your journey together, and I am so excited for you. Cherish every day.
