Seeking deeper connection to your intuition and inner vision, higher creativity and imagination, more clarity and freedom of thought? Struggling with sleep or experiencing eye issues? These may be signs that your sixth energy center could use some cuddling – and Third Eye Chakra Affirmations might just sharpen your vision!
Affirmations are positive statements – declarations that compliment who you are or confirm who you wish to be – that can help you challenge and overcome negative thoughts, encourage yourself, boost self-esteem, relieve anxiety, increase self-love, and expand upon the tangible as well as the mystical properties of the chakras.
How? They stimulate the areas in your brain that make you more likely to effect positive change in regard to yourself and your health.
Repeating affirmations can help you harness the power of your emotions and put them to positive use. They are powerful tools for cleansing, balancing and manifesting. Truly believing what you’re affirming is crucial to invoking the ancient magic of affirmations – which science now supports – in daily life.

What Is The Third Eye Chakra?
Ajna – the Sanskrit name for the Third Eye Chakra – translates to:
“Perception” or “Beyond Wisdom”
Ajna is the sixth energy center in the body. The Third Eye Chakra is associated with the color indigo or violet and the element of light.
Located in the center of your skull, between your eyebrows, Ajna is the control center, the seat of the mind, and the connection between mind and body.
The sixth Chakra is your point of intuition, your access to clear thoughts, self-reflection, inner vision and guidance. Of great spiritual significance, the Third Eye is said to unite the two major pranic forces in the body to open up the mind to inner stillness, divine sight and intuition.
All of the Chakras are linked, so a balanced or blocked Third Eye Chakra affects the health of the other Chakras too. Why? Energy needs to circulate through the body in order for us to be healthy – physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. When the Chakras are aligned it flows, when they’re blocked it’s stagnant.
Indications Of A Balanced Third Eye Chakra
When the Third Eye Chakra is open we see reality and our true Self clearly, we’re able to self-reflect, see the world and understand it. Alignment within Ajna elevates our clarity, with others and ourself, and allows us to access:
- Logic and creativity — Here lies the ability to integrate logical thinking and creativity.
- Wisdom — The Third Eye is the center of wisdom and knowledge which allows us to open our minds to deeper, more evolved understandings.
- Vision — Ajna is the link between mind and the physical world. It enables us to internalize the outer world.
- Intuition — This Chakra enables us to access our inner-perception and intuitive senses. Ajna is crucial to clearly perceiving the subtle qualities of reality.
- Self-Reflection — This energy center is responsible for our ability to self-examine.
Someone with a balanced Ajna Chakra feels clear, creative, and confident in their intuition. They are secure in themselves and the world. They’re likely calm and wise, and are willing to share their wisdom when prompted.
Third Eye Chakra Blockages
Key responsibilities of the Third Eye Chakra are vision and the ability to recognize and trust our intuition. The capacity to clearly see reality, decipher the codes within it and reflect upon our visions are empowered or prevented here.
Symptoms of a Blocked Third Eye Chakra
The Chakras spin and attract energy that is on the same frequency, and in turn sends it back out – like attracts like. The more positive energy a chakra consumes, the more positive energy it releases and the more positivity it magnetizes back. However, the same goes for negativity.
Presence and awareness are crucial when it comes to unblocking, attracting, and manifesting.
As with the other energy centers, the two main reasons your Third Eye Chakra may not function properly are due to an overactive or under-active flow of energy (prana). When Ajna is out of balance, we may struggle to see what’s real and true, ignore our intuition, feel disconnected from ourselves, or experience other destructive emotions such as:
- Mental – lack of concentration, inability to see past illusions and self-reflect, poor memory, experiencing nightmares
- Emotional – fear of the unknown, fixation on seemingly random things, lack of intuition, disconnection from the Universe
- Physical – headaches, eye issues, impaired vision, exhaustion, difficulty sleeping
Third Eye Chakra Affirmations Can Help
There are affirmations to help elevate our ability to communicate with ourselves and others, as well as stability of wellness including physical, mental and emotional health and spirituality.
How To Choose An Affirmation
Simply choose an existing affirmation that resonates with you in the moment – reading it feels like a cuddle or elicits an emotional response or inspiration. Or create one for yourself – this may come to you intuitively, or you might be inspired by ours.
The affirmations here are only suggestions. Please feel free to add affirmations for the Third Eye Chakra that feel empowering, leave behind those that do not, or come up with your own!
How To Practice Third Eye Chakra Affirmations
Everyones’ style varies – according to body type, time available, emotional and energetic needs, state of mind, time of month, etc – and it’s likely that your choices will evolve through the short and long seasons of life pending on how you’re feeling and what you’re seeking.
Here are some loose guidelines and tips to get started. Feel free to experiment and sculpt accordingly to suit your needs!
- To practice Third Eye Chakra meditation, find a sweet spot – many prefer a quiet place.
- Get comfortable, like you would for meditation – seated or lying down, with the spine as straight as possible.
- Focus on the space in the very center of the brain – between the brows and directly down through your crown – the location of the Third Eye Chakra. You might take a few slow, gentle circles of your head to help hone in on Ajna. See if you can find and feel a point of focus.
- Breathe. Consider trying sama vritti – often called equal or coherent breathing – where the length of the exhalation matches the length of the inhalation. No prescribed count, your own pace, rolling circularly from inhale to exhale and back again whilst focusing on the Third Eye center.
- Read your chosen affirmation over and over, committing it to memory if possible. Perhaps eventually softening your gaze or closing your eyes, if that feels safe, as you continue to say it aloud or silently.
- As you repeat the affirmation, visualize the violet color of the Third Eye Chakra and imagine it flowing into your energy center. This may appear as an expansion of the color from the center through your body into the space around you, or an increase in vibrancy or saturation, with your inhalation, followed by the color shrinking back to a small point or soft glow with the contraction of your exhalation.
- Strive to see infinite spaciousness – perhaps by focusing your internal gaze upon what would be a point on the horizon line ahead of you and then drawing that point in towards you until you experience a cross-eyed sensation as the point enters your head – then send it back out again.
- Truly, deeply engage – immerse in the feeling of the words of the Third Eye Chakra affirmation.
- Tip – if you need a little extra to amp your concentration, try chanting the seed mantra for the Third Eye Chakra: OM or AUM.
