Week 3, Day 3: Ajna Chakra Meditation

 
The Ajna Chakra is the 6th of 7 energy centers in the body. The brow chakra is associated with the color indigo and is located between the eyes. When this chakra is balanced you will feel a sense of self realization, as well as being insightful and intuitive.
 
Take a few moments to close the eyes and relax the mind as you prepare for the meditation.
 
Focus on the space between the eyes. Begin to imagine the eyes feeling heavy and soft with each breath.
 
Count 12 slow deep breaths and begin to feel your eyes become heavier and more relaxed.
 
Imagine an indigo light, with each inhale let the light fill the space between your eyes.
 
Continue to focus on a soft indigo energy flowing in and out of the body with the breath.
 
Notice how relaxed the eyes, brows and face seem to be as you continue to deepen the breath.
 
Free your mind from all distractions and incoming thoughts as you go deeper and relax counting 12 more deep breaths.
 
Stay here with a calm breath and and clear focus for 5-10 minutes longer.
