The Third Eye Chakra – also called the Sixth Chakra, and Brow Chakra, and Ajna Chakra – is located between the eyebrows in the center of the brain. The pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and the autonomic nervous system, are governed by the third eye chakra. It is the energy center for our ”sixth sense”, intuitive perception, psychic abilities, and visualization. The third eye chakra is associated the element Light, the sense of Intuition, and the color Indigo.
Third eye chakra healing is about having control of how to open and close the third eye. Brow chakra healing will open up your psychic abilities – clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (feeling), and claircognizance (knowing/clear thought). Third eye opening is about being able to receive intuitive information, and about having a greater control over your mind and emotions. When your third eye chakra is awakened and balanced you will experience high mental ability, clear thinking, focus, and good health. You will also be able to combine emotion and logic, and separate imagination from reality. Having your third eye opening can also help with fatigue, sleep problems, day dreaming, disorientation, inability to listen to others, empathy of others, and gaining self confidence.
