The Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) is located in the center of the forehead just above the eyebrows and is associated with the color Indigo, or Light Purple. This Chakra point has physical connections with one's eyes, ears, nose, lower brain, upper neck, and the pituitary gland. It is also connected to, and responsible (on the emotional side) for one's intuition, truthfulness, dream states, inspiration, and perceptiveness. On the mental end of the spectrum, our wisdom, insight, intellect (not to be confused with intelligence), and powers of the mind are all controlled here.

The Anahata, or the Heart Chakra, is associated with the color green, and is where one's love and compassion reside, as well as rage and hatred. Our physical connection with the Heart Chakra is quite intricate, as it is connected with the heart, lungs, the ribs, circulation, breathing, the immune system, the arms, hands, and fingers.
The Solar Plexus, or Manipura, is the last of the lower Chakras. The Solar Plexus Chakra is located between the belly button and the actual Solar Plexus of the body. It is associated with the color yellow/golden yellow.
