Third-Eye Chakra

Do you find the concept of Chakra confusing? Well, many people find it so. You might wonder where all these chakras, including the third-eye chakra (Ajna) are supposed to be in our body.


First, let’s get the concept of the chakras clear. There are seven chakras in the human body and these chakras are the main energy centers in the body.


And the sixth chakra in our body, Ajna or third-eye is linked with our ability to focus and see the bigger picture in life. When your third-eye chakra is opened, it becomes easier for you to connect with the present moment instead of dwelling in the past or future. It is an extremely spiritual chakra, which is connected to your intuition, psychic abilities, and higher knowing. Someone with an open third-eye chakra experiences strong visions and intuitive hits.


Let’s explore more about the third-eye chakra


What is Third-Eye Chakra?


Also known as Ajna (meaning “beyond wisdom” or “to perceive” in Sanskrit), the third-eye chakra opens up your mind to information beyond the material world and the five senses. Think of third-eye chakra as the eye of the soul. In this chakra we find our mystical selves - intuition, inner vision, psychic energy, or extrasensory perception.


When Ajna is balanced, you will feel equal in tune with both the physical world and the material world. Psychic information will come easy to you just like information from the five physical senses, but only that it won’t overwhelm you. Those who balance this chakra of wisdom become visionaries.


However, imbalances occur too in the third-eye chakra either as excess or deficiencies, which you will find out about ahead in this article


Let’s have a look at the basics of the sixth chakra that is the third-eye chakra:


Location: The space between your eyebrows. It radiates down to your mouth and up to the top of your head.


Controls: Intuition, Imagination, Wisdom, and the ability to think and make decisions


Element: Light


Color: Purple/Indigo


Seed Mantra: Sham


Symptoms of Misaligned Third-Eye Chakra:


The important thing is that you have to be able to detect the signs and symptoms of a misaligned third-eye chakra causing problems so that you know you act on them sooner. The triggers sparking the need for third-eye healing differs for everyone. However, some of the most common emotional and mental symptoms of a blocked third-eye chakra are as follows:


  • Lack of faith in the true purpose in life
  • Feeling aimless
  • Inability to make decisions
  • Finding your life or work pointless
  • Paranoia
  • Anxiety related issues

Blockages in third-eye chakra could also give rise to multiple physical symptoms. Some of the most frequently witnessed are:


  • Headaches (including migraines)
  • Discomfort in the eyes or ears
  • Problems in the sinuses
  • Sleep disorders

Moreover, the third-eye chakra can also be pushed out of alignment when someone belittles your vocation or passion. Likewise, going through transitional life experiences such as death, illness, job loss, or divorce can cause blockage in the third-eye.


How to Open, Activate and Unblock Your Third-Eye Chakra?


As murky or complex as it may sound, a third-eye chakra healing is surprisingly simple. The third-eye opening experience can be profound. An unblocked third-eye chakra can be vital in leading a happier life. It will help you in fine-tuning your sense of intuition, which will naturally drift you towards opportunities that are right for you. Being aware of the symptoms of the open third-eye chakra is an easy way to tell whether you are living in accordance with your true purpose.


1. Do Meditation


Third eye is one of the many ways to work on opening and energizing the third-eye chakra. Follow the steps here to get started with:


  • Sit in a comfortable position. Close your eyes. Slowly and deeply, exhale and inhale at least ten times.
  • Shift your attention to the location of the third-eye chakra. Think of an indigo/violet beaming light in the middle of your forehead.
  • As you continue with your slow and deep breaths, visualize the purple sphere of energy growing bigger in size and getting warmer. Imagine it clearing all the negativity out of your body.
  • Allow yourself to feel the energy all over. Feel as if you are absorbing the energy of the third-eye.
  • When you feel you are ready, open your eyes slowly. Sit for a few minutes before going about your day.

As you practice this, you’ll find it easier to connect with the energy of the third-eye chakra.


2.Practice Yoga


If you like yoga, you may try some of the techniques such as a downward-facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana), arm stand or shoulder stand (Salamba Sarvangasana), child pose (Balasana), Eagle Pose (Garudasana) to activate the third-eye chakra.


Yoga poses for the Ajna chakra will help you fine-tune your sense of perception and also let you see life as it truly is/beyond the material world.


3.Say Positive Affirmations


With third-eye affirmations, you want to focus your attention on spirituality, your gut instincts, and your basic sense of purpose. Here some examples you can try:


  • I trust and follow my intuition.
  • I recognize wisdom comes from within.
  • The knowledge of the universe is within me.
  • My third is open and ready to see my purpose. 

4.Include Chakra Food In Your Diet


Adding specific third-eye chakra foods in your diet can help prevent or fight against blockages in the chakra.


Given that Purple is the color for the third-eye chakra, the intake of all purple food promotes its balance. Some of the best sources include eggplant, purple cabbage, blueberries, and blackberries.


Foods rich in Omega-3 can enhance cognitive function and thereby help to keep your third-eye chakra open. Think of walnuts, chia seeds, salmon, and sardines. Chocolates too are advised when you are trying to open your third eye.
