Chakra Function: The third eye chakra is the center of power to visualize your destiny; it is a center of divine knowledge, wisdom, intuition, intellect, and inner vision. A fully balanced third eye chakra is “open” and is the key to knowing the truth behind the world of illusions, and living an inspired life of balance, joy and grace. The third eye chakra is concentrated on in meditation to bring about a full re-balance of the mind and body, in order to create peace. It is believed to be the gateway to knowledge and many ancient civilizations have seen the power in this particular chakra; it was known as the seat of the soul and the soul eye. The ancient Egyptians called the third eye chakra the Eye of Heru; the Chinese named it the Eye of Buddha.
Issues of the Third Eye Chakra: If the third eye chakra is imbalanced, it can lead to overly analytic behavior, absentmindedness, narrow mindedness, egotistical behavior, memory loss, deafness, brain tumor, insomnia, pain, learning difficulties, blindness, and dyslexia. Other manifestations of an unbalanced third eye chakra include migraines, mental exhaustion, and psychic overload. A "closed" 6th chakra also manifests as relationships with people who have ill intent, getting into bad business deals and trusting the untrustworthy. When the 6th or third eye chakra is open and balanced, you can see your destiny from moment to moment, and live it. There is also a sense of knowing where your actions and relationships with people, places and things will lead; and with that comes with the ability to move toward what's good for you and away from that which does not serve your highest good.
