You may have heard people talk about the sixth sense, that primal instinct which guides from within. The Third Eye Chakra, also known as Ajna, could easily be described as the home of the sixth sense. Located between the eyes, Third Eye Chakra deals with all aspects of knowledge that fall outside our physical perception; intuition, insight, and inner clarity. Through the Third Eye Chakra, we’re able to see beyond what’s immediately apparent to uncover and understand deeper truths. It affects imagination and memory. It nurtures higher abilities like clairvoyance and psychic wisdom. When you have a hunch or simply know something to be true without being able to explain why, you’re likely being guided by your Third Eye Chakra. Physically, the Third Eye Chakra regulates the nose, the eyes, and the sinuses.

When the Third Eye Chakra is in balance, you have a carefully honed intuition and more importantly, you trust it. You’re able to cut through the world’s noise and distractions to follow a clear vision of your life. You have a sense of the bigger picture. With an ability detect new and interesting patterns, you’re open to change and trust in its potential.

Out of Balance:

When the Third Eye chakra is blocked, it results in feelings of uncertainty and insignificance. You feel stuck, unable to see a path for yourself. Your intuition is poor and you lack clarity and concentration. On the other hand, an overactive Third Eye Chakra results in delusions and fantasy. In the body, an imbalanced Third Eye Chakra can manifest as eye pain, sinus problems, and headaches.

Traditional mindful meditation is an excellent way to open the Third Eye Chakra as it helps you get in touch with your true spirit. For an extra boost, feel free to meditate with gemstones like Selenite and Lapis Lazuli. You may also try using essential oils like Jasmine and Eucalyptus.
