Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)

Sanskrit Meaning:

Ajna (command)

The Psychic Chakra

Just like animals can sense changes in the environment that we can’t, such as earthquakes and weather changes, we have the ability to sense things that are not apparent or obvious.

In the past, we needed this intuition to be aware of our surroundings and predict potential threats to survive. As we’ve become more of a technological and developed world, centered around science and concrete evidence, we’ve lost touch with our intuition.

The most commonly accepted location for the sixth chakra is between the eyebrows, slightly above at the bridge of your nose. Contrary to a common misconception, it is not located in the middle of the forehead, but between the eyes where the eyebrows would meet. It can also be described as being located behind the eyes in the middle of the head.

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.

A healthy third eye chakra is a balance between the left “logical” brain and the right “creative” brain. Together, both sides of your brain can bring you to a place of trusting your intuition and in turn, thriving and flowing through your life gracefully and successfully.

The third eye chakra is multidimensional, allowing us to see into ourselves as well as the world around us, physical or otherwise. Which means it’s considered the center of psychic abilities.

Many people are skeptical in such claims because we have lost touch with the nonphysical in our science driven world. We seem to believe that if we can’t see it and feel it, it isn’t real. Even though science is proving that things are more complicated than we could ever imagine, every day. For thousands of years, claims of people with abilities have flooded our stories and histories. It’s not as far fetched as you might think. Many people will find themselves carrying around an ability or two if they practice mindfulness in themselves and their world to notice.

Some of these abilities include:

  • Clairvoyance (Vision)

  • Clairaudience (Audio / hearing)

  • Clairsentience (Touching)

  • Clairscent (Smelling)

  • Clairgustance (Taste)

  • Clairempathy (Empath)

  • Channeling

  • Aura reading (being able to perceive energy surrounding a person, place or object)

  • Astral projection (also called out of body experiences)

  • Mediumship (Communicating with spirits)

  • Telepathy (perceiving others thoughts)

  • Precognition (knowing the future or past)

  • + Many more

We’ve become accustomed to trusting what we can see and feel to be true and in turn lost touch with our instincts and the magic we hold inside of us.

You can become more in tune with this side of you by meditating, practising mindfulness and allowing yourself to trust what your body tells you to be true. If you have a “hunch”, thought, idea or feeling about something automatically, it’s probably your intuition trying to tell you something. Try just going with it and see what happens.

People tend to shy away from this sort of thing because of fear of being considered crazy. I know I have always avoided it and only conversated about such things in privacy with my closest friends and relatives.
