“Purpose is that feeling that you are part of something bigger than yourself, that you are needed, and that you have something better ahead. Purpose is what creates true happiness.” – Mark Zuckerberg told Harvard’s Class of 2017.

When you commit to discovering, and living your true soul purpose it’s essential to turn up the volume on your intuition. A great way to begin is by strengthening and rebalancing the third eye (or brow) chakra.

PinBut first, what is your Soul purpose, and why’s it so important?

What is Purpose?

Purpose means different things to different people. It could be as simple as making sure that your loved ones happy and safe. It may be larger, like contributing to world peace. It really is very different for everyone because we are all so unique. Your purpose may be be more self-focused, like succeeding in a corporate role or it could be more aligned with expressing your creativity.


The energy invested in meaning allows you to connect with your deeper purpose. The more you engage with living a meaningful life, not only will it develop over the years, it will also offer you a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.

1. Provides Meaning:

Remembering your soul purpose creates a genuine sense of meaning in your life. When you understand what you are passionate about and you know that you are great at it, you can significantly contribute to the planet.

2. Offers A Sense Of Belonging:

Discovering a sense of meaning to life gives you a sense of place in the world. When you have found your purpose, you will naturally resonate with certain environments and communities and feel a desire to connect with them.

3. Assists With Decision Making:

Knowing your true purpose makes it easier to exercise choice on a daily basis. You know better whether a situation or person is compatible with your life because you understand where you are going.

4. Broadens Self-Awareness:

By honoring your soul purpose you will get a clearer sense of who you are as you will understand the true essence at your core.

5. Simplifies Your Life:

Reclaiming your purpose actually makes life easier. You automatically know what to focus on and what is unimportant. You spend less of your day embroiled in things that don’t really matter.

6. Positive Ripples:

Living a life that is true to your purpose enables you to have a much greater impact on the world.

7. Generates Self-Confidence:

You know that you are here for a reason and that your unique contribution benefits everyone. Be confident in the knowledge that you are unique and nobody can do it better than you.

Activate The Third-Eye Chakra To Develop Self-Awareness

PinThe third eye chakra (Sanskrit name Ajna) sits between the eyebrows in the center of the forehead, it’s often referred to at the brow chakra and is regarded as the “sixth chakra”.

The brow chakra works on the eyes, brain, mind, nose, ears, nervous system, pituitary, and pineal gland. The pineal gland is situated within the brain. This small endocrine gland produces melatonin, which modulates our sleep patterns and many believe it to be the source of psychic and intuitive vision. Opening this chakra can be transformational, and the third eye is one of the most powerful chakras to support you through your spiritual emergence as consciousness is shifting. It also improves memory, focus, vision, imagination, meditation and independent thought.

Signs of a blocked or imbalanced third eye chakra can include:

Headaches, nightmares, hallucinations, delusions, difficulty concentrating, poor memory and vision or denial.

One of the easiest way to notice if your third-eye chakra is out of balance is when you feel lost when it comes to a sense of purpose and a path in life. This sense of being without inner guidance can lead to becoming very stagnant

When this energy center becomes blocked, you may also begin to distrust your intuition. Your perception about where you’re headed in life can become negatively impacted or totally unrecognizable. Being unable to let go of the past and having a fear of what the future holds may also make you very rigid in your beliefs, daily routine and how you perceive others.

Feeling stuck in your daily routine and unable to look beyond your problems and set new visions and goals are also signs that the brow chakra is blocked.

The need for purpose is one the most essential characteristics of human beings. We crave it and can suffer serious psychological effects when we can’t find it.

Purpose is a core component of living a fulfilling life.

There are several ways to stimulate and rebalance this energy center.

1. Use Vibrational Remedies:

Australian bush flowers such as the Bush Iris, Yellow Cowslip Orchid, Angelsword, Green Spider Orchid, and Fringed Violet will work on rebalancing the third eye chakra and will ultimately help you to gain clear and concise spiritual discernment.

More info on how flower essences can be used to restore the chakras can be found in this video.

Organic essential oils such as Frankincense, Rose, Clary Sage and Roman Chamomile are also perfect for the third eye and they can be diffused in an oil burner or vaporiser which is then sprayed into the aura; or gently rubbed onto trigger points on the skin.

2. Use Crystals:

Listed below are a selection of healing stones that are commonly used to open, balance and heal the third eye chakra. Many correspond with the chakra color.

  • Lapis Lazuli – Rich Blue with Gold Speckles – Helps condition your energy to higher vibrations so you can increase your spiritual progress. Lapis also enhances your dream recall and helps you connect with your spirit guides.
  • Purple Fluorite – Purple – Used to stimulate and balance. This stone dispels negativity while promoting intuition and mental clarity and focus.
  • Amethyst – Purple – Used to open, stimulate, and balance. Amethyst is a healing stone that offers wisdom, healing, and protection from harm.
  • Labradorite – Indigo Blue/Green – A supportive stone of transformation that works with the third-eye to bring a greater, intuitive understanding of purposes to any struggles in ones life.
  • Blue Moonstone – Translucent Blue – Moonstone is a gentle awakener that will help you to accept your psychic abilities.

How To Use Chakra Healing Crystals

Each crystal holds a unique vibration so it’s extremely important to know how to use the correct stone with the affected chakra. Cleansed and charged healing crystals are most effective when you place them near to the location of the imbalanced chakra which is in need of healing. They are often worn as jewelry or positioned over the affected chakra.

For third eye healing, try wearing a crystal in your hair.  You could also place them in various locations around your home in your bed as you sleep.

3. Use Sound Frequencies:

Certain sound vibrations resonate with the chakras and are incredibly powerful for clearing blockages and creating balance. Among the most popular are the use of mantras and vowels.


The Seven Sacred Vowels are considered extremely holy in many traditions including ancient Egyptians, Tibetan, Japanese and Native American.

The vowel sound for the third eye chakra activation is Aye.

Bija Mantras

Another potent method of resonating the chakras is to use the Bija Mantras. These were developed from Sanskrit letters within the Vedic traditions, and are said to balance and align the chakras.

The Bija Mantra which resonates with the third eye chakra is SHAM

Another aspect of sonic chakra system resonance has to do with the actual frequency or keynote of each chakra.

Keynote A is believed to be in natural resonance with the sacral chakra. It has a frequency of 426.7 Hz.

4. Meditate:

Meditation is beneficial for almost anything in life, including helping you access intuition as we are able to bypass the cognitive mind and slip into an alpha brainwave state. By attempting to move away from over thinking and remaining in a more neutral, open state… we prepare ourselves to receive and accept intuitive information.

5. Surround Yourself With the Colour Indigo:

Another very simple method to rebalance the third-eye chakra is to wear indigo clothes or bathe in indigo light. This mystical color is incredible for balancing the third eye, enabling you to heighten your intuition and develop clairvoyance. It will also help you to clarify your own truth by working on your mind to unlock the doors to other realms of existence.

This is especially beneficial if you do not have any 2’s in your birth-date as you may need to activate your feminine, intuitive aspects.
