A balanced and open third eye, also known as the Ajna, chakra fosters concentration, focus, and reliance on intuition. Here are more specific techniques for balancing its energy:
Mindful breathing can calm the mind and, in turn, cleanse and open the Third Eye. Being conscious of your breathing not only allows for cleansing, but also balances the chakra system.
Add Third Eye Color:
Associated with the color indigo, which is a combination of deepest blue and violet, the Third Eye chakra governs… Introduce blue and purple hues to your home and office decor. Surrounding yourself with subtle indigo tones can help heal the sixth chakra and boost energy flow. Add precious or semi-precious blue- and/or purple-stone jewelry to your wardrobe.
Practice third eye meditation:
Of all the exercises you can do for the sixth chakra, those that require you to actually engage the Third Eye are the best.
Visualizing and meditating on the color blue or purple can help activate the sixth Chakra. For instance, sit comfortably and with eyes closed, visualize a blue (or purple) ball of energy in the area of your Third Eye. Simply concentrating on and holding that image is enough to activate the sixth chakra. Concentrating on this image can not only open up the energy center, but it helps dispel imbalance and heal the chakra.
Practice with Singing Bowl:
While tuning the Singing bowls, visualize the energy spinning in you Ajna. Imagine your 3rd eyes activated with the Indigo color.
Third eye meditation on open sky:
The Third Eye is crucial in dreaming and dream recall. Engage and activate your Third Eye chakra by keeping a dream journal.
Work your theta brainwaves:
It could be useful to learn how to activate and maintain theta and alpha brainwaves. These foster frontal lobe activity and prepare your third eye and brain to be more receptive. (Through Singing Bowl or Binaural Beats)

Roman or German Chamomile
Eat (and Drink) Fruits and Veggies
Consuming beverages and foods with natural blue and purple hues can help bolster positive energy flow through the Third Eye chakra. Drink dark fruit juices, such as grape and blackberry. Consider adding the following fruits and vegetables to your grocery list:
(Above all these do help in some percentage)
