Chakra Six is located just above and between the eyes. Often called the “third eye” this Chakra deals with visualization, intuition, imagination, telepathy and clairvoyance, which comes from the French meaning clear seeing.
This Chakra draws into our lives lessons that will lead us to wisdom but only if we are open. It allows us to see both inner and outer worlds, gives spiritual contemplation and inner reflection.
The challenge is to be mindful, live in each moment, and observe our patterns. This allows us to recognize what limits us.
The ancients say that our destiny is written on the inside of our third eye and if we learn to quiet the mind we can read it.
Ajna translates to mean “beyond wisdom” or “the perception center”. We command the power to turn visualization into manifestation. Perhaps, this is the place where we can ask not how life can serve us but how can we serve life?
It is associated with light and involves the pituitary gland, nervous system, eyes, head, lower brain and nose.
Physical dysfunctions that may arise with an imbalance are brain tumors or stroke, blindness, learning disabilities, headaches. Emotionally we may experience hallucinations, lack of discipline, attachment to material possessions and people and fear of success.
When Ajna is flowing it can communicate easily with the other Chakras. We possess the capacity to visualize and increase our sense of confidence and power. The hemispheres of the brain are integrated and we have balance between logic and creativity.
