The Ajna Chakra of Intuition
Almost everyone is familiar with the term “Third Eye,” even if you don’t have a metaphysical, psychic or mystical bone in your body. It is associated with seeing the unknown and what the physical Eye is not aware of. The seeing sometimes comes through as an actual visual apparition, closing your Eyes and seeing in your mind or a flash or vision of something from the past or prophetic.
What exactly is the Third Eye Chakra? The Ajna Chakra, the sixth of seven chakras, is located in the forehead, between and slightly above the eyebrows. Its assists “insight,” “intellect,” and “intuition.” The name Ajna is Sanskrit, meaning “command” or “perception.”
The balancing of the Third Eye Chakra is the second chakra of passion and feeling. This chakra is also of mind, which helps us think clearly and associated with everything of light. It is also referred to as having “the sixth sense”. Exceptional intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight are available to everyone but few tap into that deep potential.
A Clear Eye
When we are connected to our Third Eye (having an open channel with no blockages), it is a corridor between the conscious and the unconscious mind. This energy center is higher knowledge, the subtler aspects of sight, and of course, intuition. When that corridor is open, our internal intuitions are sharp and we sometimes have the ability to read the future and receive unspoken messages.
Through the Third Eye, we non-verbally communicate with the world and can even receive information from the past and from the future. It grants us our sense of observation of the unseen.
When the Third Eye Chakra is balanced, we experience high mental ability, have the ability to separate reality from imagination and combine logic with emotion. When we live with a balanced Third Eye Chakra, we experience overall good health, clear thinking and focus.
A healthy Third Eye Chakra will encourage using your intuition frequently, have empathy for others and build trust in oneself. The color that represents this Chakra is purple or indigo and associated gemstones are amethyst, tourmaline and tanzanite.
Ajna Chakra Out of Balance
The Third Eye Chakra is the main point for external life energy (prana, chi) to enter and be distributed to the other Chakras. It is also the key to ongoing spiritual development. Thus, keeping it as clear and balanced as possible is very important.
When it is out of balance, we can experience fatigue, day dreaming, sleep problems, lack of assertiveness, inability to listen to others and may even feel disoriented. Physical signs of the 6th Chakra being misaligned can also result in problems with vision.
When this Chakra is over active, you may immerse in a world of fantasy and even experience hallucinations. As you work to open the Ajna Chakra, you can begin to see things as they actually are without the ego’s projection of life. From there, you can move toward the things you value in life more effectively.
Some suggested ways to balance your Third Eye Chakra is using a pendulum in a counter clockwise spin, breathing deeply and visualizing the color purple illuminating throughout that center. Add lots of purple in your wardrobe and home décor. Even a purple scarf will help balance your Third Eye. Classical and soothing meditative music will also help. Go star gazing, the night sky twinkling with all the bright stars will open and cleanse your Third Eye.
While you are out there looking up into the night, ask for assistance from whomever you feel guides you to open and balance your intuitive eye. Finding an energy worker who balances all your Chakras is even better but you can do it yourself with a pendulum, a good “how to” book, energy stones and crystals. Sage smudging can also help.
Psychic Susan Z’s Verdict
Chakras are swirling wheels of spiritual energy corresponding to nerve centers and organs in the body as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual state of being. The seven Chakras of energy keep our body in balance and harmony, so it is imperative to be alert when you feel “off” and do a Chakra check. More than likely you will find that your energy in one or all of your Chakras may be blocked. The 6th Chakra, The Third Eye is how we “feel” our way through life. Staying connected to the Divine in order to see how things really are, not just what the ego wants us to see.
