The negative archetype of the Third Eye Chakra is the Intellectual. This archetype tries to master the forces of chaos by living from the dictates and constrictions of the left brain only and it seldom engages with its feelings, particularly those surrounding fear and insecurity. Its mind is dry and has a static quality to it which limits its happiness and restricts its capacity for joy. While it controls its world, it avoids having to listen to its inner voice which may be saying that it is time to relax, enjoy the day, or smell the roses. The Intellectual is also highly opinionated and has many ideas based on information from secondary sources rather than trusting what comes from its direct experience. It does not trust its own intuition to provide a valuable source of information to guide it through life’s challenges or uncertainties. The Intellectual is often full of tension from worrying or thinking too much.
The healthy archetype of the Third Eye Chakra is the Intuitive. This archetype is able to access its deepest knowing which we call our intuition. It has become wise. It can make choices for itself and help others to find their inner wisdom. This highly developed archetype has the gift of inner sight, known as clairvoyance, and trusts its inner knowing to provide guidance and answers to life’s perplexities.

Imagine your Third Eye Chakra. The color of this chakra should be a beautiful, clear indigo which is a mixture of blue and red. If you see any other color, remove it and imagine the chakra being filled with indigo energy. Once you are able to imagine the proper color filling this chakra, imagine it spinning in a clockwise direction. Spin it faster and faster as you fill it with sky blue energy.
