By gaining awareness of your higher self, you realize that there is something beyond yourself, a higher life force that connects everyone in the Universe. From this realization, you gain faith, hope, and peace.
The forehead chakra strengthens intuition and sparks imagination. It uses your imagination and intuition to help you align with your true path. It enables you to think outside of the box and find solutions to blockages in your life.
A well-balanced forehead chakra helps you dream of possibilities of what could be, while you are still conscious of reality. An imbalanced forehead chakra creates a fantasy, a non-existent reality, which is an escape from reality.

TECHNIQUES TO BALANCE THE FOREHEAD CHAKRA
I believe that listening to a Hemi-Sync® meditation CD can help bring the forehead chakra into balance. Hemi-Sync® meditation CD’s are designed to balance and synchronize your left and right brain. If you choose to do the Hemi-Sync® meditation, I highly suggest that you set aside one whole hour to listen to the entire CD to get the full benefit of the sequence. I also recommend that you listen to the CD while lying down. I do not recommend listening to these CD’s while driving.
Find a comfortable and quiet spot to lie down. If it is a nice day outside, take the opportunity to lie in the grass and look at the clouds while you re-energize your forehead chakra with meditation. Place one of the forehead chakra crystals— blue tourmaline, blue sapphire or opal— on your forehead between your brows. Try to be aware of the heaviness of the crystal as it sits on top your forehead. Take a moment to sense the shape of the crystal. Once you have the outline of the crystal’s shape, try to picture the color of the crystal. Relax and soak in the crystal’s healing energy.
