The Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra painting was inspired by the majestic boab trees in the Kimberley region of Western Australia that appeared like wise elders with their grounded, bulbous trunks and fragile limbs reaching for universal knowledge. I felt a huge affinity with these trees, as though they were speaking with me.
If you look at the picture of the Tree of Self, the third eye chakra is the gateway to the crown of the tree situated between the throat chakra and the om chakra that is embedded into the crown and connected to the star that links us directly to universal energy.
For me, the Third Eye Chakra Tree is energetically connected to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland of the body that act as the gateway to the brain. This circuit of brain structures is responsible for supervising hormones (our messenger cells) within the endocrine system. They govern emotions and behavioural triggers connected to the limbic and autonomic nervous systems that affect our whole body. These chemical messengers have the ability to affect the energy flow in the root chakra (adrenal glands), the sacral chakra (ovaries and testes), the solar plexus (pancreas, liver), the heart (thymus gland), and throat chakra (thyroid and parathyroids).
