Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

The 6th Chakra: Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

ajna-ani Voice of Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra: “You are Intuitive and Wise”. You make sound decisions with your Higher Intelligence”.

Introduction: Third Eye Chakra’s original or Sanskrit name is Ajna. The meaning of Ajna is 'perception', and also 'become aware of' and 'control'. The Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra is depicted as a two leafed lotus flower. The two leaves are placed next to the heart of the flower, like wings. In the heart of the flower an inverted triangle can be found and a crescent moon placed over it. The Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra is situated in the middle of the forehead, right over the bridge of the nose, between the physical eyes.

The function of Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra is aptly described by its Sanskrit name Ajna, meaning perception, aware, control which in essence means ‘command’.

This is the seat of mind and at this level we experience mentation; which is flow of mental images and abstract ideas continually coming and going in the mind.

Is Your Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra Healthy or Blocked?

Power of Thought

Thought is so potent that it materializes itself through the ether. So that what we think, we become that. Everything which exists at the material level and which is perceptible to the senses has previously been formed as a mental image in the mind of its creator. Just as the ether is the subtle pervasive substratum of the four lower elements, so thought is the even subtler and more potent principle above the ether. To create anything it is only necessary to think it into existence. However this statement covers an enormous field of practical application and endeavour. It is very hard to bring thought under such control that it forms only those images which we want it to and no others. When Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra is blocked you may react cool to everything or just the opposite, be very aggressive, rigid, stubborn and assertive in your ways. Also egoism is connected to a blockage in the Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra and fear of success is one of the signs of a disharmony in this Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra. Physical problems related to a blockage in Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra are headaches, blood circulation disorders in the brain, problems with the eyes and nose and blindness.

Associated Organs with Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra issues manifest mainly around the eyes, ears, nose, the brain and the nervous system as well as the pituitary gland, manifesting in headaches, vision problems and nightmares.

Balanced Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra:

A person with a well-balanced Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra can be very charismatic and also very intuitive. They have a calm mind, able to see clearly without personal issues getting in the way. They accept people and situations as they come without being judgmental. They have the ability to think symbolically and also to imagine different outcomes, finding a guiding vision that gives meaning to life. A balanced Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra also enables access to and remembering of dreams and easy to visualize, and have a very good memory.

Overactive Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra:

The overactive Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra will lead to overactive imagination, which is ungrounded in reality. It can also lead to the blockage of the memory of events, rigid, fixed mind attitude , not being able to fully experience and integrate events, which will later haunt them in dreams, nightmares or obsessive fantasies. They are often easily distracted, and ruled by anxieties.

Underactive Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

A deficient Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra will make it difficult to visualize and imagine things, also difficult to remember dreams, with generally poor memory. The 6th chakra may have been closed down for protection from memories not wanting to see. Generally there is poor intuition which is compensated by rational thought processes, being stuck in a world of black and white consciousness and living in denial, sometimes even insensitive towards others.

Energetic Healing Of The Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra:

Before we can work effectively on the Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra, it is important that balance has been restored in the lower chakras first. They need to form a solid foundation for the brow chakra to build on. This will serve the integration of the self, without getting lost on the astral realm. Developing latent capacities to use intuition and to open to dream work, visual arts and meditation, deepen the healing process around the brow chakra. chakra balancing and chakra restructuring also sound healings and colour healings as well as past life regressions are very effective for the support of a well-functioning 3rd eye. Creative artwork, meditation and working with dreams and guided visualisations can also restore balance to the brow chakra.

Your thoughts create your reality - literally - and so if you aren't already directing them to focus on what you want (versus worrying about what you don't want) it is better to change direction now! You can start by understanding the huge power and potential contained in your Indigo colour Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

The Third Eye as it is most commonly known is located in the center of your forehead. Most people associate it with 'psychic ability' however let's take a look at what that word 'psychic' really means. It is having the ability to see into other dimensions, to access information about the past (including past lives) and the future. It includes all potential pathways available to you, which include everything from your deepest fears to your highest and greatest dreams plus everything in between and beyond. So, asking someone with psychic ability “What do you see for me?” is like going into a video store and asking the clerk “Which movie will I watch tonight?” There are so many possible answers, all depending on which pathways you choose to take, which are determined by the thoughts you choose to make. Yes, make. Most people have never been taught that they have creative control over their thoughts, and over the movies that play out in their minds – control which completely and totally determines the way that their life is unfolding.

How Your Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra Can Help You Live Happy

When the Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra is out of balance we feel scattered, mentally foggy and confused. We indiscriminately put up random images on our inner projector that hold our conflicting beliefs e.g. The thought that 'I want a new job' movie is playing at the same time as the 'Finding work in this climate is impossible, I should stay where I am' movie making your progress forward near impossible, creating feelings of frustration and stagnation. We tend to obsess about the past or worry about the future, when the true power of our third eye and reality creation abilities lies in the Now, that is the present moment. That's the only place from which we can truly do anything. When we are out of balance in this area we can also be prone to headaches, eye problems, poor concentration and trouble sleeping.

Meditation Technique By Neeta Singhal

Neeta Singhal has developed a unique meditation technique which is called "Release meditation" based on Neti Neti Yog by Jagatguru Shri Adi Shankaracharya. In this technique, the fears are brought to surface and are then released completely from all aspects of life into a rotating vortex which is a black hole that destroys everything. "Facing a fear is bringing it into light and that enables us to release the fear", she says. This meditation style also involves playing the Gayatri mantra or resonance music in the background.
