6th (Third Eye) Chakra Profile

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-images-chakra-series-ajna-image11851189The sixth spiraling energy center in our being is the Third Eye Chakra. The Sanskrit name for the sixth chakra is Ajna, which means “beyond wisdom” and “the perception center.”

The Third Eye Chakra involves intuition, clairvoyance, imagination, mental abilities, reasoning abilities, and wisdom. This chakra holds the power of the merging of your intuitive brain and thinking brain. This is where the self-image is created and changed, based on what you see of yourself in your “mind’s eye.”

 

Location

The sixth chakra is located in the center of the forehead. The energy of this chakra pulsates at the brow and the back of the head. The third eye is associated with the pituitary gland, pineal gland, eyes, head, and brain. The pituitary and pineal glands balance and harmonize emotions, hormones, fight and flight responses, and bodily growth. Often times when there is a deficiency in this chakra, one is usually shy and may have eye problems, loss of memory, and the inability to hold creative thought. Usually, when the third eye energy is excessive, one is often seen as having a “know it all” personality and is prone to frequent headaches, inability to concentrate, hallucinations, and nightmares. This chakra links our physical body, intelligence, awareness of our Inner Truth, and our beliefs. Through this, manifestation occurs according to our perception of these factors.

 

Governs

The third eye chakra governs our need to seek the difference between “truth” and “illusion.” Through this, we are given experiences which may enhance our inner wisdom only by understanding and practicing detachment. Detachment is the ability to have an impersonal mind, also known as an open mind, and not allow external happenings to regulate one’s internal state. This is done through not buying into fear-driven thoughts and creating a balanced sense of self. Detachment is also done through consciousness, which is the ability to live in the present, flow with what is happening “now,” and release the old and welcome the new whenever it may occur, with pleasant ease. With this detachment, we can see beyond the physical illusion of “conspiracy.” The illusion of conspiracy is associated with feeling as though other people have conspired and achieved in the altering of your life path. Through detachment, one will see that in any altering of your life path, there is a higher truth of much needed change that is exactly as it is supposed to be in any given situation!
