Indigo Chakra Color and the Sixth Sense

Intuition, inner voice, gut feeling, or the sixth sense is available to us all the time. It is an unconscious process that cannot be forced, but it cannot be stopped either. It is always available to us.

The challenge is to learn to listen to our intuition.

Living our fast paced lives and being programmed by society to be rational and reasonable, we never learned to listen to voice within. But it is there. Available to access at any time.

Have you ever had a strong feeling that something was wrong, you dismissed it, because you could not rationalize it, only to regret it later?

That's intuition.

Third eye chakra color indigo helps you to connect with your intuition, it helps you to connect with the deeper parts of yourself, your gut feelings, your instinct, or the sixth sense.

What others said about third eye chakra color indigo....

I think Indigo is a beautiful color that in-between shade on a fresh delphinium bloom that radiates healing energy that can be felt and goes beyond visual. When I see this color in a flower or a bird or butterfly, or fish I am drawn to it and like those moments spent there viewing it to linger and I feel instant gratitude for the pleasure of it!

I've found that while indigo is indeed included as one of the seven colours of the rainbow, it is also one of the lesser known colours. Believe it or not, I've come across people who have been unable to identify indigo by name when the colour is shown to them, merely choosing to describe it as a "royal purple" or shade of blue. Since I was young, I have come to associate indigo with a sense of "regality", though I have no personal affinity for the colour myself. Overall, I find that indigo has become a lesser-known and under-appreciated colour in comparison to its various counterparts.

Every color depends on mood. Indigo color is not my type because I like light colors. I think Indigo is for women and those who like blue, red etc. may also like Indigo. I think Indigo color is not favorite for a lot of people. No one in my extended family, friends or anyone I know is drawn to this color much. I think it is because it reminds me of a dark night and as such is not a very uplifting color.

I like Indigo color very much as I like dark shades. I have got lots of Indigo colored clothes in my closet and I feel a sense of pride in wearing them as I think Indigo is enchanting and attractive. Indigo is a cool color and should be more popular than it is. It always reminds me of my Hoodie which my girlfriend gave me when we were in a relationship.

Most people are aware that indigo is a colour related with rainbow. In a rainbow, along with other colors it looks good. But I don't like that color and I don't wear clothes of that color. I don't know why, but I feel that indigo is quite depressing and lacks brightness. It is somewhat dull and gloomy and in my opinion people who like indigo may be quite secretive in nature and they may be good in hiding their inner feelings. They will be introverts and prefer to be lonely.

Indigo gives me peace. When I look at it, the world stops, everything pauses, the sense of time fades away. I feel a connection with something greater than me. Thank you for providing this space, because I never really pondered upon this.
