Today we'll chat a bit about the 3rd-Eye Chakra or Ajna, which is the Sanskrit term and means 'to perceive' or 'to know'.
If you missed previous posts on the Chakras in this series, you can start here with the Root Chakra.
The 3rd-Eye Chakra is located at the space between the two eyebrows. The body areas and organs associated with this chakra are the pituitary gland, pineal gland, eyes, head & lower area of the brain.
The color associated with this chakra is indigo and is symbolized by a lotus flower with 2 petals. The petals represent the two hemispheres of the brain and are on either side of a circle with a downward-facing triangle which houses an all-seeing eye of wisdom.
The color indigo is said to be a very spiritual color. It's associated with boosting intuition and developing a deeper awareness of reality; of what's really going on.
This chakra connects you to the element of light and is referred to as our 6th sense.
The bija or seed sound is Sham.
The main theme of this chakra is perception. It relates with our ability to connect to the inner voice of our soul, the part deep within us where true 'knowing-ness' occurs.
When this energy center is blocked or unbalanced, you may lack imagination or have nightmares. You may have difficulty concentrating or 'seeing' your life vision.
When this energy center is balanced, you will develop strong intuition and insight. You feel clear, inspired and imaginative. You can recall your dreams easily, and you begin to see a clear vision guiding you on your life path.
The essence of this chakra is to help you tap in to your intuition and inner knowing.
As you begin to become more aware of the 3rd-eye energy center, Ajna chakra, you will begin to see more clearly through the eye of your soul. Know that you have the deep wisdom inside you to see through illusion, allowing your true personal vision to emerge.
Acknowledge that you are cultivating the awareness to hear the whispers from deep within your soul and the ability to tap into the limitless abundance of your own insight and intuitive wisdom.
I listen to my deepest wisdom.
inhale - enjoy - exhale,
Ps. Becoming aware of the chakras is a process and a practice. Remember to be kind to yourself as you are discovering some of the areas in your life or aspects of yourself that you are not that thrilled with. Realize that you are learning about a way that you can begin to shift those areas and aspects that will help you become the kind of person you would like to be.
