Today’s blog is about the 3rd eye or brow chakra. It is also known as the Ajna Chakra. This chakra is the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. People that use this chakra are known as psychics or seers. It is the 6th chakra.
The color of this chakra is purple of bluish purple. It can also be seen as a translucent purple or bluish white. It has the soft radiance of the moon.
It is associated with the pineal gland in charge of regulating biorhythms, including sleep and wake time. The pineal gland is a gland located in the brain that is a center of attention because of its perception and effect of light or mystical states of consciousness. It is sensitive to changes in lighting. Many people talk of opening the pineal gland and expanding their psychic abilities. This is what they’re referring to is the 3rd eye chakra. This chakra also is the connection to wisdom, insight and motivates inspiration and creativity.
Imbalances of this chakra are feeling stuck in the daily grind with feeling that there are no options to move on. Lack of clarity and spiritual rejection are other imbalances. Over active symptoms are manifesting and indulging in fantasies of a spiritual nature.
Stones that aid in the 3rd eye chakra are amethyst, black obsidian and purple fluorite. These are 3 of my favorite stones! I use the obsidian for protection and the amethyst helps with sleep and healing. Fluorite is a very eye appealing stone. It has swirls of purple and green. This stone helps with emotions and chaos.
This chakra is one of the most talked about chakras because people always want to become more open and deepen their abilities. You can work with this chakra with meditation and exercises to strengthen and become more open but I do place a warning on wanting to do so. Becoming very open can bring experiences and responsibilities that will challenge you. You might see and feel more things in the spirit world that can be overwhelming and frightening. You may have to protect yourself more with grounding and shielding. You might have trouble sleeping. Please proceed with caution and respect this chakra with seriousness. It is good for this chakra to be open just like the rest of the chakras but strengthening this one can have consequences.
