Third Eye, Inner eye or 6th Chakra, this is where we connect to the mental plane of our existence. Our ideas, dreams, goals, values and our “self” image all begin here!
It is by our thoughts that we are able to express ourselves in the world, and it is from our thoughts that we are able to make our dreams a reality!
In developing our inner perception through meditation we begin to understand that all events in our life happen for a reason and we see everything for what it is, not as we think it is. We begin to understand that we are the Dream Weaver in this intricately designed web of reality!
The third eye is our gateway into higher realms of consciousness. When one becomes enlightened you understand fully, without a doubt that we are truly all One and that our idea of separation from one another is nothing more than an illusion.
When your Ajna is in balance with your other chakras, you will begin opening up to Universal Knowledge and truly understand that you are the Creator in your Reality! You will experience Higher states of consciousness, allowing you to astral travel, have out of body experiences, and receive messages from your Spirit Guides, Angels and other Enlightened Beings. You will be very intuitive, have a great memory, and will be able to learn without a problem.
If you have an over active third eye you may experience stress accompanied by frequent headaches that happen in the forehead or temples. You may become delusional and create circumstances in your mind that are not really happening (a mental disease). An individual with over-activity in this chakra may also tend to be judgmental, unsympathetic or over-intellectual in their thinking.
If your third eye is under active you will probably have difficulty in understanding the spiritual side of the world and the connection between your inner and outer reality. You may lack empathy for the people in your life, lack common sense, or intuition. Memory and learning can be affected if the third eye is not balanced.
Physical symptoms of an Imbalance:
Brain cysts, tumors, strokes, blindness, deafness, seizures, insomnia, learning disabilities, spinal dysfunction, panic, depression, addiction, migraines, headaches, dizziness, nausea, sinus problems, ear aches, hormonal imbalance and equilibrium dysfunction.
