The Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)

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.

With that said, when we are out of balance in this area, one may experience a number of negative things, some of which can even be excruciating. A malfunction in this area can cause persistent headaches, insomnia, night and fright-mares, visual hallucinations (for those in-tune usually “demons”), dizziness, memory loss, and various nervous disorders.

Now, to be clear with these ailments, there are chemical imbalances that can cause all of the above. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms previously mentioned, even though you have done the meditations, or even if you have not, we ask that you please see your Physician or another licensed professional. Please do not substitute this for medical advice. Though, it can be used as a tool to help, even the ancients used medicine along with healing energy rituals.

With respect to healing and balancing this Chakra, one may use crystals or stones, such as: Amethyst, Iolite, Azurite, Sodalite, and Kyanite.

It is recommended that one takes exceptional care of this Chakra point, as it is where one is able to discern the truth from falsehoods. When traveling the Astral Plane, this is how we see where we are going, and the destinations around us. When in a deep meditative state, and even while doing readings, this is where we receive the information from the incoming energy that the Spiritual and Crown Chakras filter in. This is the point where said energies are translated into something that we can understand.

In our honest opinion, to be cut off from this Chakra due to an imbalance torturous, a personal hell if you will, until it is put right. To put it in perspective, we are more or less asleep at the wheel without it. But when it is in sync and balanced, it is connected with the five Chakra points below it. It functions with the energies of the others feeding it, working to make sure our perception is in line with the emotional alignment of the others. It prevents them from overriding our judgements and decision making.
