Color Violet-Meditation for Clearing and Balancing the Third Eye Chakra • Sit comfortably on a chair with your hands on your legs (palms facing upwards) • While you are sitting with your eyes closed and concentrating on your breathing, deep slow breathing • Put you attention on the next Crown chakra - visualize the Crown chakra as a bright VIOLET ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Crown chakra - breathe in Violet - breathe out violet. Repeat for 2-3 minutes. NOTE: Ensure you see the violet ball's energy is spinning at the Crown chakra and also envision the opening of a Violet lotus flower on the top of your Crown — make this as large and as magnificent as you can. • Finally See White light flowing down from the Heavens through your Crown chakra all the way through all the other chakras and finally into Mother earth. You should envision yourself as a glowing white being with all the Chakras within that spinning brightly (for their chosen color). Hold this for about for 2-3 minutes.
