The colour we are most drawn to always indicates the ‘colour’ we need most and indicates the part of the body that needs healing.
WITHIN me is the knowledge, understanding and wisdom of the ages. Infinite intelligence lies in my grasp, guiding and inspiring me.
Our sixth chakra is the energy centre of intuition, intellect and reasoning. Sometimes it is referred to as our “third eye” as it involves our mental abilities and our psychological skill at evaluating our beliefs and attitudes. We need to continually search for the difference between truth and illusion, the two forces present at every moment. Trust what you cannot see far more than what you can see. Another way to put it is that we need to believe our beliefs and doubt our doubts.
The organs in our body governed by this chakra are the brain, nervous system, eyes, ears, nose, pineal gland and pituitary gland.
An imbalance in this chakra may result in brain tumours, haemorrhage, stroke, neurological disturbances, blindness, deafness, full spinal difficulties, learning disabilities and seizures.
As we have been doing during this series of articles, let’s again explore the issues we need to confront to determine the hidden background behind imbalances in this chakra.
Do I interpret the actions of others in a negative way? If so, why?
What negative patterns continually surface in my relationships with others?
What attitudes do I have that disempower me?
What beliefs do I continue to accept that I know are not true?
Am I judgmental? If so, what situations or relationships bring out that tendency?
Do I make excuses for behaving in negative ways?
What beliefs and attitudes in myself would I like to change? Can I commit to making those changes?
Am I comfortable thinking about my life in impartial terms?
Do I know I need to change but continually postpone taking action? If so, do I identify those situations and my reasons for not acting?
From our eyes we receive light. This is much more than a superficial level of light and dark – it is how we perceive colour, images and our visual sense.
In chakra 5, we shared how sound affects our healing. Now we open the door to the colour and light in healing. Each chakra has a colour associated with it and a vibrational frequency is related to the colour.
To recap, the 1st chakra is associated with the colour Red, the 2nd orange, the 3rd yellow, the 4th green, the 5th blue, the 6th indigo and the 7th violet or white. When we visualise our health, we see in our “mind’s eye” the healthy image of what we aim to be. We “see” in colour just as if we are watching a movie.
Most times I am able to identify the area of a person that is causing pain or illness just by placing a set of colour cards on the floor of my room. The colour they are drawn to most almost always indicates the “colour” they need most and indicates the part of the body that needs healing. Colour however is a separate subject that we will explore fully later.
The real key to our 6th chakra is our inner knowledge or intuition. As we move from our lower energy centres and approach the crown, the more our energy balances, the more we open the inner intelligence and inner knowing we are all born with. This is what we instinctively know to be right and good for ourselves. As we grow we are “educated” to programme our intuition out of our daily lives.
Now we are rediscovering the real things that are important to us and as our chakras become balanced and our lives rebalance themselves through the voyage of discovery we have embarked on over the past few months, we have become really new people. We have been discovering the impediments to our health. We have been discovering who we really are.
Our intuition is a wonderful gift that once we reaccept will always guide us and protect us. We will find that we will instinctively know what we should or should not do. Many people who redevelop this wonderful 3rd eye instinct get premonitions to avoid going somewhere only to find out later that something bad occurred at the place or on the way to the place they were going.
Our intuition is about being aligned in body, mind and spirit with the divine universe, which is what our daily affirmation has been doing for and to us. We started our affirmation: “Every day in every way, in my body, mind and spirit, I am in perfect balance with the divine universe” (for those who have been following us from the beginning) back in October 2002, so we have been doing this for nearly six months. We have been reprogramming ourselves to be who we were born to be.
Through the development of our intuition, we exact knowledge of the sources of our intended creative self, of its characteristics or qualities, and of its location within the whole. We now have the ability to see any event, any object from a viewpoint of the universal whole, from it’s end result – the seed, the flower, the fruit in relation to the whole.
Our intuition gives us the knowing of something without prior knowledge or the use of reason. Intuition gives us a comprehensive grip of the principles of the universe. As we develop our intuition, we can know anything, without the barriers of time, space or any other obstructions.
We become creative people, people with hunches, whose chief concern is with future possibilities. We are able to sense the invisible and the impalpable. We start to perceive the whole.
An exercise that will help develop our intuition is to get a set of coloured pencils or crayons and sit down and draw two pictures – whatever comes to mind. This is not about being artistic. Use whatever colours you feel like. You do not have to use every colour, but use the ones that “call to you”.
One picture should represent your skills as you see them now. The other picture should represent your vision of where you want to go. For the moment, just draw the pictures. In a few weeks we will look at them again.
(I use this exercise very successfully in my Team Development Programmes.)
My closing thought this week: There is no rest for the soul. God is hungry for us to grow. When you look around and you see empty spaces, beware. In those spaces are cities, invisible civilisations and future histories. Everything is here.
We must look at the world with new eyes. We must look at ourselves differently. We are freer than we think. We haven’t begun to live yet. The man, whose light has come on in his head, in his dormant sun, can never be kept down or defeated. We can redream this world and make the dream real. Human beings are gods hidden from themselves. Our hunger can change the world and make it better, sweeter. The world that we see and the world that is there are two different things. Wars are not fought on battlegrounds, but in a space smaller than the head of a needle. We need a new language to talk to one another.

When the earth is sick and polluted, human health is impossible ? To heal ourselves we must heal our planet, and to heal the planet, we must heal ourselves.
