Sixth Chakra – Third Eye Chakra
Tibetan Note ~ E
To Perceive, to Know, Intuition
The third eye chakra, also known as Ajna (meaning awareness, knowing), refers to an inner sense of wisdom and knowledge or spiritual knowing; something that you can’t see, but is there all the same. It is thought that the third eye can see to inner realms of higher consciousness. It is the gauge of mental health, intellectual process, intuition, dreaming and visualisation. The prominent physical aspects are the brain itself, the eyes and central nervous system. Some ways to improve Ajna’s health are active or lucid dreaming and abstract visualisation.
The fact that indigo is the colour associated with your third eye chakra is not of little significance. Indigo, deep blue-purple, represents the esoteric and intuition. Indigo represents a connection to the Divine, a deep sense of peace and connection between the material world and the spiritual world.
The pituitary gland is a small and oval-shaped gland behind the nose, near the underside of the brain. Once called the “master gland” of the endocrine system, it has since been found to be controlled by hormonal substances released by the hypothalamus, a part of the brain. This vital gland influences growth, metabolism and general body chemistry.
The third eye chakra will help keep your mind focused on related issues, including the awareness of the benefits to be gained by transcending the purely physical world and opening yourself up to intuitive sight and wisdom. It allows you to tap into limitless knowledge that you can address directly in order to answer the questions for which you tend to look to others, be they mentors, therapists, astrologists or psychics.
When the third eye chakra is too open/overactive/congested (chakra spins too fast):
Obsessively logical; dogmatic; authoritarian; arrogant; sleep disorders; manipulative behaviour; overly sensitive to others’ feelings; attention deficit disorder.
When the third eye chakra is blocked/weak/depleted (chakra spins slowly or not at all):
Undisciplined; fears success; tendency towards schizophrenia; headaches; sinus or ear problems; nightmares; poor visual perception; non-assertiveness; poor concentration.
When the third eye chakra is balanced/healthy (chakra maintains equilibrium and spins at correct vibrational speed):
Charismatic; highly intuitive; not attached to material things; may experience unusual phenomena.
Goal: Ability to “see” other than with the eyes.
