The sixth chakra is located on your forehead between your two physical eyes. It’s color is indigo or deep blue. This chakra deals with your intuition and psychic abilities. Some people call it your gut feelings. It is more then that though. It is your ability to connect with the spiritual. It is your link between the world around you and your inner conscious mind. It allow us to see beyond the physical and cut to the unseen and unspoken. The organs associated with the chakra are the brain, eyes and the sinuses. If you are struggling to understand the world around you and your place in it, this chakra is blocked. If you do not trust your inner voice, this chakra is blocked. If you are having trouble learning new things and recalling important facts, this chakra is blocked. If overactive this chakra can cause illusions, delusions, being dismissive, judgemental and an inward focus only. The blockage of this chakra is also associated with several brain disorders, eye problems, depression and addictive behavior. The third eye and the crown chakra are closely connected. Balancing the third eye is corrected by connecting with the spiritual. .
I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist. View all posts by dtoomey2015
