Third Eye or “Ajna” Chakra, meaning “command” is the sixth Chakra located on the forehead, between the eyebrows, slightly above at the bridge of your nose. The word “command” refers to the higher understanding that guides us in each of our actions. The Third Eye Chakra is represented with indigo blue or bluish purple. The Chakra’s symbol has two petals representing the manifest and unmanifest mind; and one inner downward pointing triangle representing Shakti or the all seeing Eye. The Third Eye Chakra is associated to the pituitary and pineal gland that regulates biorhythms. As it’s close to the optical nerves, it is also sensitive to visual stimulations.
The Third Eye Chakra is the center of perception, intuition and foresight. Every thought generated in mind is governed by this Chakra. This Chakra drives our intelligence, sensory perception, intuition or psychic energy. The Chakra is instrumental in perceiving subtle energies of life beyond the physical senses. It facilitates us to see beyond the distractions and illusions created by the physical world. The Third Eye Chakra opens our mind to access the information beyond the material world and the 5 senses thus allowing you to see the bigger picture in life. In practical life also, it channels the discerning insight that governs excellence of planning, building good strategies, ideas, innovations, analysis, leadership, execution and managerial power. People who have to exercise intelligence more or are in the position of planning and execution need to work on this Chakra.
