The 6th Chakra, Ajna. It is located on the brow. The primary energy point is between the eyebrows. It is often referred to as the third eye, or pineal chakra. It is centered around the pineal gland itself.

This chakra is the Energy Center that is all about our mind. The ancient sages considered this chakra to be the seat of psychic ability, as it governs our intuition and foresight. It is often referred to as the third eye because it is an invisible eye that “sees” things that aren’t necessarily visible. When it is fully activated and the energy is flowing harmoniously, this chakra stimulates both hemispheres of the brain. The right controlling our creative and spiritual energy, and the left controlling logical and rational energy. They work together so the mind can function from a grounded place. This chakra allows us to trust our intuition and be able to use our feelings as well as facts to make big decisions. As a result, we feel as though we are living in harmony within ourselves.

The Third Eye Chakra is the seat of intuition. By using our intuition, we often gain more clarity about a situation. When your third eye is open, you see the world in full, vibrant color. All your senses are available to you as sources of wisdom and information.

The Third-Eye Chakra symbol is a lotus flower with two petals. This represents the duality of human and spirit (Self and God). When you transcend these dualities, you experience enlightenment. The two petals represent the dualities of your ego, such as your likes and dislikes, as well as your inner consciousness and its ability to surpass these dualities.

If you have an overactive Third Eye Chakra, you may feel intense psychological and physical symptoms. On a mental level, you are likely to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Your imagination may be in overdrive, therefore clouding your intuition and your ability to discern between facts and feelings. You may be overly subjective and see life through a lens of limitations, resulting in being narrow minded and inflexible. You may intellectualize at the expense of your emotional or spiritual needs.

If you have an underactive or blocked Third Eye Chakra, you are likely to lack a sense of purpose and belief in your life’s path. You may feel energetically drained and uninspired and struggle to find a deeper meaning in your life. This makes you feel disheartened, skeptical, and fearful of the unknown.  When the third eye is blocked, you are unable to see or connect to your intuition or you mistrust any intuitive notions.

Physical symptoms that might occur with a blocked 6th Chakra include:

  • Migraines
  • Blurred Vision
  • Eye Strain
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Hallucinations
  • Sinus Issues
  • Insomnia
  • Immune System Deficiencies
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Hormonal Imbalance

As always, consult your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.
