The third eye chakra is at the center of the forehead between the eyebrows. The energy allows you to have clear thought, vision of higher self, and deep intuition. Here we have direct connection to the all knowing eye that sees beyond all senses. It is represented by the color indigo and takes on the element of light. It is represented by a two petaled lotus with the downward triangle in the center. The two petals are said to represent Self and God.
