The third eye, also called the Ajna Chakra, is associated with perception, light and intuition. While our two physical eyes see the past and present, our third eye reveals insight into more, connecting us to our inner vision. Here is what you need to know about the Ajna Chakra!
What is the third eye?
The third eye is an invisible eye located on the forehead, between the eyebrows. It aids in awareness of that which your physical eyes cannot typically perceive.
The Anja Chakra is often associated with the colour of indigo. Symbolising wisdom and clarity, Indigo is often quite deep when representing the Third Eye. This assists in expressing your intuition to see all that is truly going on around you.
The third eye chakra pertains to the concept of ‘seeing’, especially in a psychic and spiritual sense.
Having a strong third eye chakra allows you to use your enhanced inner guidance that comes from more powerful intuitive abilities.
The third eye chakra is associated with heightened spiritual growth, positive attitudes, and a more generous and humanitarian attitude towards life.
This chakra has a very strong relationship with the pineal gland, which is found behind the third chakra. During ancient times, it was believed to be where ‘The Sight’ could be found.
Ancient seers knew this, and as their abilities flowed, they also they felt a ‘tingling’ sensation in this area.
Today’s clairvoyants know of this fact, and it’s one of the many ways that you will feel the growth of your psychic powers.
The third eye chakra rules the gift of psychic hearing or clairaudience since this area resonates with the ears and with the sense of hearing.
This chakra focuses on developing your intuition, in strengthening your psychic knowing, and in enhancing your clairvoyance and clairaudience.
The third eye chakra will work on building your inner knowledge, inspiration, and your true purpose.
Signs of an Anja Chakra Imbalance
Commonly people who feel the block in their third eye, have reported issues of headaches, insomnia, and other health related problems. The negativity, impatience and burdens of the past that block the vision of our third eye.
Other aspects that have been reported to be affected by an Anja imbalance, include lack of purpose or focus, confusion and a struggle to reach your goals due to a lack of insight to your surroundings.
Balancing the Anja Chakra
