The Soul and Spirit of Indigo

Indigo has been used for centuries to dye fiber, fabric and hair a color of blue.  In ancient times, those who possessed colored material were considered wealthy.  Indigo, is a color that is derived from the leaves of the indigo plant.  When used as a natural hair dye, it can help dye the hair shades of browns and as dark as jet black.  You can learn about natural hair dying by reading our free resource on Healthy Hair

This center governs how you see life. It has 96 petals. It is the center of your personal vision and includes your ability to analyze, think, reason, understand, remember, and discern.  It is the realm of your dreams and controls what you visualize and imagine.  This is the center of clairvoyance, insight, and the ability to perceive truth in the world.

The glandular connection is the pineal.  Descartes described this gland as the Seat of the Soul. 

The Third Eye’s element is radium.  It breaks down patterns and brings about change.  Radium has a high vibratory rate and the symbolism of the third eye is about the facility of functioning on more than one level or dimension whilst still being a physical being. 
It is about the meeting point of light and spirit in matter.

The sense of the Third Eye is Inner Perception. 

Through the Third Eye we can connect to the universe and to its creativity.  This creative energy enables us to fulfill our life’s purpose.

A healthy Third Eye chakra will show signs of the ability to move towards improving your life.  You discover new options and are not easily stopped when on your way.  When this chakra is fully balanced there is no attachment to the material world and its possessions, has no fear of death, and is not preoccupied with fame, power or fortune. 

If this chakra is vibrating with too much energy, pride, and egotism moves in.  Other signs would be religious dogma, manipulative behaviour and over sensitivity to others opinions.  Also, a fear of success, non-assertiveness, being undisciplined, and the inability to distinguish between the ego self and the higher self.

Physical problems that may arise would be headaches, eye problems, sinus problems, hay fever, sleeplessness, migraines, or hormonal imbalances.
