How Third Eye chakra imbalances leads to Spiritual Burnout

It is officially Chakra month so today we’re going into the third eye and how it creates what I like to call Spiritual Burnout. There is so much to cover when it comes to working through third eye imbalances.

Let’s break it down.

I am talking to the people who are doing all the things.

They’re feeling overwhelmed, spacey, maybe even a bit of ‘too muchness’ and more than likely they are possibly feeling intense and creating tons of hypersensitivity.

This is something that is incredibly common as spiritual people and for me takes daily practice to keep in check. It’s something I have grown stronger from as I’ve done energy work. It’s very easy to fall down the philosophical & analytical rabbit hole.

I totally remember being one of those people who are OBSESSED, doing tarot daily, buying all the crystals, addicted to my spiritual practice, focusing on all the things, researching all the things, studying all the things, and completely getting lost in my own HEAD, resulting in forgetting to eat, change my outfit or just getting sucked in completely.

It gets overly heady, too much ‘in our heads’ and not enough in our bodies. I come from a background of psychological analysis and dissecting things especially my mind – I totally get it.

It’s almost a *mad scientist * kinda vibe.

But Let’s face it the majority of people often live in their heads instead of their bodies. This is what creates that disconnection from our intuition and often this is why many individuals live in fear more than love.

However when we’re having trouble with hypersensitivity, fear and overwhelmed by it all, it’s definitely an indicator of a Third Eye Imbalance.

What happens is our higher chakras throat, third eye and crown become overactive and then our lower chakras need stability otherwise we dip into Hypersensitivity.

What this really means is it creates sensory overload:

Sensitive to light, energy overbearing you, feeling incredibly sensitive to your environments and/or crowds, over-active empathy, feeling dissociated, spacey, vertigo or sometimes even dizzy


These are all things we can heal, manage and fix easily once we understand what is going on.

(Not to Mention if the above is happening to you – Check those lower chakras & Get your booty grounded! – with love 😉 )

THIRD EYE IMBALANCES

So I find that we usually have two types of Third eye imbalances on the Awakening Journey:

There are the people who either new to everything so they’re overly saturated with an overactive Third eye – which causes them to be profusely overwhelmed, information overload or even at worst afraid of spiritual happenings (afraid of their own clairvoyance, seeing energy/spirits)

These people are 9 times out of ten afraid of their own power or They’re just stepping into using their spiritual power so they’re a little uncertain.

Then on the opposite spectrum there are the people who are completely checking out of reality – they are very in their heads,  deep in the interdimensions of space and they usually feel they don’t belong here and resonate strongly with ‘beam me up scotty!’
(earth isn’t my real home, love me some aliens, etc.)

I happen to love aliens, Roswell was my favorite show ever lol, anyway… 

These people are usually arrogant, get in their own way and often block the perceptions to move them forward because they’re blocking the integration process by attaching to their Ego/victim stories.

This keeps them stuck.

Here are the easy symptoms to spot if you’re feeling you have a third eye imbalance.

EASY THIRD EYE SYMPTOMS TO SPOT:

  • Very Indecisive
  • Highly Critical and analytical
  • Ungrounded airy fairy – lost in psychic fantasies (good or bad)
  • Denial – Has a hard time accepting new information
  • Unfocused & undisciplined
  • Obsessions, addictions, escapism
  • Overly dogmatic/ Rigid
  • Delusions/ Hallucinations/Nightmares
  • Brain Fog, confusion or migraines
  • Dissociation, Depersonalization – disconnected from the world around them.
  • Neglects the Body, too much time in their head.

..

CONSUMING. INTEGRATING. APPLYING.

So Here’s what I really notice when it comes to Third Eye and given i’ve been doing this work for about 8 years, if you see the same thing over and over again, you start to see the patterns. We usually go through this process of consuming. integrating. applying.

I’ve seen it happen in all sorts of ways but it all interconnects to how the third eye functions. 


IN THE CONSUMING PHASE


We heavily absorb information from our subconscious, In short, we start receiving these Channeled Spiritual Messages, visions or Downloads 

We also heavily absorb information from our spiritual teachers, coaches, books, courses, training, podcasts, plant medicine, networking, tribes, and all the things!

Then what happens is most of us get stuck here and in worse cases, it can start to create some co-dependency.

We don’t fully Integrate the information. 
This creates an energetic limbo. We go back to absorb more & more information, thinking we missed the mark.

And Most of the time
what happens is we don’t enter the integration process which is what starts the mind interconnecting back with the body to heal and transform.
 
(Kundalini energy merging back into the physical world)


THE INTEGRATION PROCESS

In the Integration process, we DETACH.
we may detox, physically, mentally, spiritually
we may declutter
and we start to Embody by Applying what we learned into our body, into the physical world. 

So when we have a third eye imbalance – we’re relying on our own strength and perceptions, not the infinite strength of the Universe/God/Source’s infinite possibilities.

What happens is it creates Disconnection and often times stagnant energy which keeps us stuck in the absorbing phase usually longer than necessary.

Then as we grow & evolve, we repeat the process. absorb. integrate. apply.
 
If this sounds confusing, just strip it back to this is literally how we learn as children. 

For example:
We absorb information through questioning.
We integrate & process the information.
We embody through applying the information into our experiences.
And that’s how you ride a bike & learn your ABCs


When we are stuck in a third eye imbalance you’re more than likely getting stuck in one or two categories. 

You’re too in the head and not enough in the body which is creating a disconnection from the mind and the body.

You’re not integrating the information fully into the physical world.

You’re not embodying the information as truth within your being.

WHAT DOES THIS USUALLY CREATE?


A form of what I like to call Spiritual Burnout.

We create Spiritual Burnout because we’re not detaching and integrating the information we’ve been learning.

If you really think about it, it’s like constantly absorbing and downloading information into a bottle, eventually the bottle will get full and explode.

Excess energy = excessive emotional and sensory overload.

So very simply, a third eye imbalance is just due to excess energy not being fully integrated.

When we don’t pull back & detach, we’re lacking the clarity to integrate. 

It blocks our perception.

When we’re not choosing to integrate, we disconnect from applying the information 

The Fastest way to Heal is in the Action. 

This is why I believe strongly in the mind-body connection.

There is a pattern out there I see TONS of dealing with third eye imbalances.

A big piece of this is our energy and our body are out of vibrational harmony because we’re choosing to NOT anchor these energies into our physical world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So as we’re doing these affirmations and spiritual work, if we’re not also FEELING into them, embodying them as our TRUTH.

We are creating a disconnect.



We must be tuning into the body, into our intuition and taking 100% responsibility for our emotions.

Rather than wanting to beam out to another dimension, it’s important to see Awakening is bridging the gap of both worlds.

Not separating from one or the other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we cut off the material mind, this is when we create imbalances around materialism. the physical body and the physical world.

This mentality of we need to be living like monks all the time creates this very confusing and delusional thinking which is what creates an imbalance in the higher chakras.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we truly want is the Material Mind & the Spirit Mind working synergistically. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When the material mind and the spirit mind aren’t working synergistically that is usually when we create an imbalance in the Third eye.

Thus creating Spiritual burnout. ⠀⠀⠀

And this is usually where people come to me feel overwhelmed, lost and feeling disconnected from their spiritual power.

The Real Question then becomes:

How am I Choosing to Limit myself
and What am I refusing to see that is blocking my perception?

In today’s Vlog (#throwback aka videos I refused to upload until now, I promise this is the last of the purple hair series lol) – I talk about Spiritual Burnout and what it does to our energy.


Some Soul Medicine to take with you: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The balance is about Exercising BOTH parts of your mind.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

OVERACTIVE THIRD EYE CHAKRA:
Internal Mind – Overwhelmed by Spiritual practices and sensory overload. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


If you’re suddenly overwhelmed from Spiritual practices, afraid of spiritual power or intuitive abilities, you’re not focusing on external reality enough.

Do something mundane that is grounding or simple to bring you back to baseline, like clean your room, organize something, play a game, go outside, watch a fun movie.

Whatever Snaps you back into the Body, will help return your energy to be more present this is what helps us feel more grounded in the physical world.

Getting Present is Key here.

⠀⠀UNDERACTIVE THIRD EYE CHAKRA:
External Reality – Overstressed from Everyday Living⠀⠀

If you’re suddenly overstressed or anxious from everyday living, you’re neglecting your center by not focusing on what’s internal⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Go Within. Spiritual Practice. Listen. find inner stillness, Slow down your pace of action, Go back to your center, yoga, creativity, journal – exercise the right brain! ⠀⠀



I’m a firm believer of everything in Moderation.

If you’re finding yourself stuck in an obsession, addiction or ‘fangirl’ moment – ask yourself: Am I avoiding my center?

It’s all about the Balance yo

(Can we take a special note to say I did not talk about all the spiritual diets you need to do, how you must decalcify your pineal gland or get on a detox asap. None of that is necessary when you begin to TUNE in to your body and start fixing the imbalance)

What do you feel from all this?

Is your Third Eye more under or overactive?
