Last class we were focusing on our Third Eye. Color: purple. Location: The center of the forehead, between the eyes. Bija mantra OM. Our blind eye, that can see beyond mind, beyond words, beyond time.
It’s important to ground yourself while opening up the third eye chakra. Without being properly grounded, your visions might sweep you off your feet. The influence of the root chakra energy supports the activity of the Third eye chakra.
This 6th Chakra and is responsible to what we refer to as "the sixth sense". Ajna Chakra In Sanskrit, meaning "Perception". It connects us to our internal intuitions and is responsible for the sharp senses. The third eye aids us to think clearly with consciousness and deep spiritual insight. The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths. Apart from this, Ajna or the third eye chakra also assist us in imagination, inner vision and intuitive knowing. This chakra is our guiding star which interprets our past, present and future and assists in setting up a path for Self that is based on complete wisdom and knowing. It means examining self-limiting ideas. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.
When the Chakra is unbalanced we experience fatigue, day dreaming, sleep problems, lack of assertiveness, inability to listen to others, and may even often feel disoriented. Not being able to establish a vision for oneself and realize it. Rejection of everything spiritual or beyond the usual. Not being able to see the greater picture. Lack of clarity.
When the Third Eye is balanced you see everything clearly. The "way of the third eye" is seeing everything as it is from a point of "witness" or "observer", or from simply being mindful - moment by moment. You make decisions with a sense of neutrality; meaning you are concerned, but not attached, to any single outcome. We experience high mental ability, we are able to separate between reality and imagination and best combine logic and emotion. When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchronicity. The right hemisphere's creativity and synthetic thinking is integrated and balanced with left hemisphere's logical and analytical thinking.
When we live with a balanced Third Eye chakra, we experience overall good health, clear thinking and focus. A healthy third eye chakra will encourage intuition, empathy of others and build trust in oneself.
