If you’ve been seeing and experiencing colors during meditation, this means you’re reaching a deeper state of meditation and your subconscious mind.
It’s a positive sign, and can often reveal some interesting physical, mental, and spiritual things about your wellbeing depending on the color you’re seeing.
What does seeing indigo color during meditation mean? The color indigo relates to the sixth chakra, also called the third eye, brow, or Ajna chakra. Seeing indigo when activating your third eye can reveal a lot about your general health.
What Is the Third Eye (Sixth Chakra)?
The third eye is a chakra located right in the center of the forehead between your brows.
This is where our pineal gland is located. So, there is some science behind the profound feelings and experiences we can have when we connect with this gland.
It’s the point where all of our senses work together, and is often described as being responsible for a “sixth sense”.
Our sixth sense is when we feel or see something spiritually, emotionally, or other than cannot be explained by scientifically.
People who are able to engage with their third eye are able to get a much deeper understanding of themselves.
They can feel an “energy” that can’t be seen. They are also able to connect with their subconscious mind, and some people even describe entering a different “dimension”.
What Does Seeing Indigo Colors While Meditating Mean?
If you’re seeing indigo colors, especially if you’re focusing on the point between your eyes and you see indigo, a golden light, a white flash of light, or even an eye, this is a sign that you’re activating your third eye.
While you should never focus on colors or anything else you see while meditating, the profound effects should be present in your everyday life.
If you have been experiencing any of the following its further proof that you’ve been activating your third eye:
You’re Starting to Think Differently
Once you’ve opened your third eye you will start to think differently. These experiences affect everyone differently, but the common theme is that people start to focus on self-improvement.
Once you’re more aware of the good and bad energies and influences around you, you’ll start to focus on the good and push the negatives away.
You’re Able to See and Feel Things Others Can’t
The sixth chakra is associated with intuition. If you’re starting to get a “feel” for when something will happen or feel more connected with your spiritual side, this is perfectly normal.
It’s a subtle feeling, and something you will need to work with to better understand. But it’s a truly powerful feeling that will help you improve your life.
You Understand Yourself Better
This was the most exciting revelation for me when I started getting deeper into meditation and opening my third eye.
I really started to better understand a lot of things about myself. Such as why I think the way I do about certain things, emotions I’ve been holding onto, the changes I wanted to make in my life, and more.
Powerful eye-opening stuff!
You’re More Perceptive and Spiritually Connected
A lot of people seek ways to connect with their spiritual minds. Doing so allows most people to become more present in the moment, enhance their senses, become mentally stronger, and live a healthier life.
Like a lot of the effects of opening the third eye, it’s a very personal journey and hard to explain exactly how you’ll feel. But there’s no denying it’ll enrich and enhance your life.
What to Do When You See Colors While Meditating
The first thing I will point out is that it’s important not to focus on any visions you have while meditating.
The purpose of meditating is to not get distracted by anything you see or feel while meditating.
Seeing colors, or any other visions is a sign of progress. It’s a positive thing, and something you can reflect on when you’re not meditating.
You should actively encourage seeing colors though. You can do this by focusing on parts of your body that are associated with the chakra point you want to connect with.
In the case of the third eye, you can do this by focusing on the area between your brows. You can even imagine the color appearing between your brows before you see it and, with practice, this will encourage these visions.

Should You Be Concerned?
I don’t think there is any cause for concern, no.
Sometimes people will see other colors relating to different chakra points in their bodies that may relate to a physical health issue.
Such as seeing green colors, which relate to the fourth heart chakra. Or seeing blue colors that relate to the fifth chakra which is located in the throat.
If you’re experiencing these colors you should investigate these physical areas to see if your subconscious mind is telling you there is a physical issue.
In the case of seeing indigo color during meditation, the third eye is a gateway to expand our minds. It’s a way to unlock our sixth sense. Some people even say they developed telepathic abilities, so it’s an exciting thing to explore.
Seeing colors during meditation is normal. In most instances, the color you see will relate to the associated chakra point in your body.
The color indigo relates to the sixth chakra located between your brows and is also known as the third eye.
In this article, I covered some of the powerful and profound physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences that can come from opening your third eye.
If you’ve experienced any of these things – or maybe some personal things I haven’t covered – I’d love to hear about it. Please feel free to drop a comment below and share your experiences.
