WHAT IS THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA?
According to http://chakras.info:
“The third eye chakra is the sixth chakra. Located on the forehead, between the eyebrows, it is the center of intuition and foresight. The function of the third eye chakra is driven by the principle of openness and imagination. The most common Sanskrit name for the Third eye chakra is “Ajna”, which means “command” and “perceiving.” This chakra is related to the “supreme element”, which is the combination of all the elements in their pure form.
The third eye chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics:
- 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 third eye chakra is an instrument to perceive the more subtle qualities of reality. It goes beyond the more physical senses into the realm of subtle energies. Awakening your third eye allows you to open up to an intuitive sensibility and inner perception.
Because it connects us with a different way of seeing and perceiving, the third eye chakra’s images are often hard to describe verbally. It puts us in touch with the ineffable and the intangible more closely. Third eye visions are also often more subtle than regular visions: They may appear a bit “blurry”, ghost-like, cloudy, or dream-like. Sometimes however, the inner visions might be clear like a movie playing in front of your eyes.
Sustaining awareness of third eye chakra energy might require focus and the ability to relax into a different way of seeing. When we focus our mind and consciousness, we can see beyond the distractions and illusions that stand before us and have more insight to live and create more deeply aligned with our highest good.
The third eye chakra is associated with the archetypal dimensions, as well as the realm of spirits.”
What are Chakras?
Basically they are energetic centers in your body that pertain to certain spiritual and emotional archetypes. You’ve got an energetic body and energy (life force) needs to flow properly. Sometimes energy gets stuck and can cause physical illness. Some say you need to “get your chakras balanced” or you need to “open your third eye” for example. No matter what people say, trust yourself and follow what resonates with you. The chakras are a useful tool for your own spiritual growth, wellness, and understanding of self.
According to Wikipedia, “Chakras are the various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices, collectively denominated as Tantra, or the esoteric or inner traditions of Indian religion, Chinese Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Japanese Esoteric Buddhism, and in postmodernity, in new age medicine, and originally psychologically adopted to the western mind through the assistance of Carl G. Jung.”
A good video summary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JITO2YB5bY8
The 7 chakras are arranged along the spinal cord, from bottom to top:
- Root Chakra (Muladhara) (Red, located at the base of the spine) Grounding, Security, Innocence
- Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) (Orange, located at the sacrum) Sexual Energy, Creativity
- Solar Plexus (Manipura) (Yellow, located between ribs and belly button) Ego, Wealth, Sense of Self
- Heart Chakra (Anahata) (Green, located near the heart) Love and Compassion
- Throat Chakra (Vishuddhi) (Blue, located near the throat) Communication and Expression
- Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) (Indigo, located near the forehead) Intuition, Imagination, Dreams, Astral Travel)
- Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) (Violet, located at the top of the head) Connection to Truth, the Universe, Higher Self
Each chakra represents certain archetypal emotions and energies. This is a great breakdown of each one. By the way, I bought their chakra Incense and I have to say it’s some of the best I’ve ever used. (My honest opinion, not an endorsement)
