Third Eye Chakra ~ Transcending beyond Ego

The sixth chakra, Ajna, is in the area of the third eye, located on the forehead the space between the eyebrows. It encompasses the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. An invisible yet powerful third eye, this is your center of intuition and foresight. The function of the third eye chakra is driven by the principle of openness and imagination.

A spiritual chakra, which means “beyond wisdom,” Ajna leads you to an inner knowledge that will guide you if you let it. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization.

The Third eye chakra is associated to the pineal gland in charge of regulating biorhythms, including sleep and wake time. It’s a gland located in the brain that is a center of attention because of its relationship with the perception and effect of light and altered or “mystical” states of consciousness. It’s positioned close to the optical nerves, and as such, sensitive to visual stimulations and changes in lighting.

Behavioral characteristics of the Third eye chakra The third eye chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics:

  • Vision

  • Intuition

  • Perception of subtle dimensions and movements of energy

  • Psychic abilities related to clairvoyance and clairaudience especially

  • Access to mystical states, illumination

  • Connection to wisdom, insight

  • Motivates inspiration and creativity

The gift of this chakra is seeing - both inner and outer worlds. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as gifts of spiritual contemplation and self reflection. Through the gift of seeing we can internalize the outer world and with symbolic language we can externalize the inner world.

The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths - to see beyond the mind, beyond the words.

The "way of the third eye" is seeing everything as it is from a point of "witness" or "observer", or from simply being mindful - moment by moment. It means examining self-limiting ideas and developing wisdom that comes from a perspective that transcends the duality of good or bad, black or white. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.

Sixth chakra is holistic in nature. When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchrony. The right hemisphere's creativity and synthetic thinking is integrated and balanced with left hemisphere's logical and analytical thinking.

The Third Eye is not only the seat of wisdom, but also a seat of conscience. This is where you not only see what is going on, but you also know what it means. This is where your sense of justice and your ethics originate. When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.

Third eye chakra imbalance When the Third eye chakra has an imbalance, it can manifest as:

  • Feeling stuck in the daily grind without being able to look beyond your problems and set a guiding vision for yourself

  • Overactive third chakra without support from the rest of the chakra system may manifest as fantasies that appear more real than reality, indulgence in psychic fantasies and illusions

  • Not being able to establish a vision for oneself and realize it

  • Rejection of everything spiritual or beyond the usual

  • Not being able to see the greater picture

  • Lack of clarity

Third eye chakra Indigo The third eye chakra is most commonly represented with the colour purple or bluish purple. Indigo also called Royal Blue is the third eye chakra colour. It is a colour of wisdom and deep inner knowing.

Indigo opens the door to the Divine and it is the colour that we associate with night. Its luminescence or soft radiance that reminds us of the moonlight. It is at night, when our senses become finer and a different part of us awakens.

Indigo brings clarity to the sense organs - your seeing, hearing and feeling. Indigo It is also connected to your sixth sense - your third eye. Indigo is a bridge between heaven and earth, between the left and right hemispheres and also between life and death. Indigo helps to make a transition towards life or towards death.

As you unfold the petals of your third eye chakra, you begin to recognize patterns. You can see where you have been, where you are stuck, and where you are going. You begin to experience those "Aha" moments. Moments of insight and clarity. You are recognizing your patterns and are able to relate everything to a larger picture and what it means.

Illusions are shattered and dreams are integrated. You begin to experience wholeness and sense of tranquility and inner knowing - wisdom. You begin to see that you can consciously create your life. And that your vision for the future is a creative act of will.

The Sixth Sense Your world is experienced through the five senses. Even before you passed through the womb, you heard noises like your mother’s voice and heartbeat, and listened to muffled sounds outside. You experienced touch, taste, and even perceived light. And since the moment of birth, you’ve attributed your experiences to what you perceive through the senses. You’ve learned to trust your senses in what you can taste, smell, touch, see, and hear. While sense perception is great in life experience, it limits you when it comes to expanding your awareness.

At one time, you had to count on your sense of intuition and inner knowing. Before modern technology, we had to rely on signals from the environment and a more primal instinct to guide us. Just like birds can sense when a tsunami might hit, or squirrels know when it’s time to gather food for the winter, humans too have an intuitive sense. We’ve simply lost touch with it as well as our ability to trust in it.
