Third Eye Chakra: Everything You Need to Know About Ajna

           The human body holds a system of seven energy focal points that are known as the Chakras. When these energy vortexes are aligned, they connect you to your highest divine being. The Chakras begin at the base of the spine and move vertically up the body. The sixth Chakra is known as the Third Eye Chakra which is then followed by the Crown Chakra. The Third Eye Charka, also known by its Sanskrit name Ajna, is located between the eyebrows. This Chakra is said to be linked to the pineal gland. The Third Eye is associated with intuition and self-realization.

          Have you been feeling overwhelmed lately? Maybe you have been stuck in a spout of mental fog? Do you feel as if you have been making poor decisions? These are all symptoms that can be linked to a blockage in the Third Eye Chakra. If you resonate with any of these symptoms you could have an unbalanced Ajna, but don’t worry! There is a plethora of techniques that can be utilized to realign your Third Eye.

A Balanced Third Eye Chakra

          A Chakra becomes aligned when the physical and emotional needs associated with each energy focal point are being fulfilled. Your Third Eye becomes balanced when you journey on your life’s path by following your intuition. When you obtain a balanced Third Eye Chakra you may be intuitive, imaginative, perceptive, open-minded, insightful, mentally strong, trusting, motivated, aware, creative, and spiritually aligned. Also, you will embrace truth and change, possess inner wisdom, be able to recall dreams, and have a sense of clarity.

An Unbalanced Third Eye Charka

          A Chakra can be thrown off balance when you are not nurturing the needs of the Chakra at hand. This does not mean that you have done anything wrong, it only means that you may need a little extra work in some areas just as everyone does. Chakras being out of alignment is much like a chain reaction. When one is unbalanced, it prevents you from being able to become aligned with the above Chakras as well. Some symptoms of an unbalanced Third Eye Chakra include nightmares, headaches, lack of intuition, lack of concentration, and lack of creativity. An unbalanced Third Eye may also manifest in ways such as being indecisive, confused, unimaginative, fearful, close-minded, anxious, isolated, scatterbrained, paranoid, and unmotivated.
