Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
intuition • vision • insight • pituitary • clairvoyance
1. Jesse Poulin Moroccan Stars Mandala
The third eye chakra works with symbols to intuit awareness. In Poulin’s layered-wood pieces, an intricate yantra (an ancient Hindu meditation aid) serves as deluxe eye candy for any of your favorite samadhi seekers ($2,200, jessepoulin.com).
2. iHome Zenergy Aroma Bluetooth Therapy Speaker
This gift hits the jackpot of sensory soothing, offering a spectrum of light, sound, and aromatherapy options. When used for light therapy, which enhances this chakra’s perceptiveness, choose from color-blending rifts and a flickering candle effect ($100, ihomeaudio.com).
3. Open Heart Warrior Leather Sacred Medicine Bag
Ideal for stashing crystals and other amulets, this mini-tote complements the third eye’s heightened attunement—often associated with a bluish-white light that stands for purity. The trademark bow-and-arrow detail is meant to reinforce the ability to aim true to a higher calling (from $138, openheartwarrior.com).
4. Raj Yoga Chakra Heart Stone Set
The third eye chakra is predominantly visual—and resonates with colorful, healing gemstones. We love the simplicity of this elegant set of seven heart-shaped stones and accompanying mantras that amplify and balance each chakra’s specific energy ($28, contact rajyogaboulder.com).
5. All the Wei Dark Chocolate Assortment
The Latin name for the cacao tree translates as “food of the gods,” and chocolate’s earliest connoisseurs, the Mayans and Aztecs, believed cacao beans had magical properties well-suited for important rituals. Wei of Chocolate takes its organic, vegan chocolate almost as seriously, elevating the chocolate experience to a sacred act of self-care ($32, weiofchocolate.com).
