The Third Eye Chakra

The 3rd Eye Chakra is the 6th Chakra. The Eye of the Soul. Its Sanskrit name is Ajna which means “Infinite Power”. The health of this chakra is vital.  All the body’s energy centres are important but the key purpose of this chakra is to provide a sound and useful link between the conscious mind and the natural world around us.

The Third eye is where the flow of energy interacts with your consciousness. It is responsible for the link between your mind and the outer worlds. The energy from this chakra allows us to cut through illusion and access deeper truths and see beyond the mind and beyond worlds.  So it is very important to maintain a healthy 3rd eye chakra even if you don’t believe and think this sort of thing is a load of nonsense and you are not actively seeking enlightenment or any spiritual harmony. A healthy Third Eye Chakra promotes intuition, pattern recognition, learning skills and memory.

Practices like meditation, yoga and other spiritual practices strengthen this chakra. It is like a muscle so daily practice makes it powerful and in turn you will develop a deeper connection with self.

Most people possess some sort of spiritual yearning or curiosity. We are all born with it but sometimes we may not listen to it or heed its warnings.

Bringing about a sense of spiritual confidence, intuition, emotional stability, self-awareness, an increased observation and increased psychic ability.
