The third eye chakra, Ajna meaning “The Command and Perception Center” in Sanskrit, focuses on cultivating a strong and independent mind. It contains the mental application needed for creating happy and wholesome lives. It is usually activated in our mid-thirties when we have accrued some life experience to weigh against the ideas we have simply absorbed without question when we were younger.
If our emotional and spiritual development has been blocked this charka will struggle to work effectively. There are many influences in our modern culture (media, consumerism, religious, political and corporate leaders, even some of our schools) that work hard to keep us blind, numbered out, distracted and misinformed and ignorant of the power of this chakra.
The third eye chakra provides the energy for us to experience clear and concise thought, as well as the gifts of spiritual reflection and inner contemplation. It holds the roots for psychological maturity as well as containing the ethical and philosophical principles that control most of what we do in our lives including our behaviour. For us to fully activate this charka we need to examine any self-limiting ideas that we hold that denigrate our worth. The spiritual purpose of this chakra is to offer us the possibility of wisdom, discernment, imagination, intuition and knowledge. As we distil truth from life experience, we develop this chakra and strengthen our spirt.
Our psychic self comes alive when this chakra is awoken and supported fully and strongly by the five chakras below it. Our intuition blossoms and our sensitivity to energy increases with our growing awareness.
The third eye chakra provides the powerful tool of self-reflection and contemplation through methods of meditation. Our ability to see the ‘big picture’ lives here. We come to understand more of the illusions we have created and supported in our lives when we consciously enter into unlocking the doors to perception and how this sits versus reality.
Our dreams and visions speak to us through this chakra. When this chakra is balanced and activated we are able to ‘download’ information and translate it into decipherable words, phrases and images for our own personal insight. This chakra is the gateway to our connection with Spirit.
As we expand our minds, we learn that wholesome, optimal choices based on our highest good and greatest joy are within our grasp. The third eye chakra helps us to attune our spirt to universal intelligence and reminds us of the higher power of the mind to access truth, intuitive awareness, and wisdom. It is calling us to wake up and not to numb out, to be willing to see the truth. We can only be better, healthier and more empowered if we are willing to see the truth and to cultivate our own wisdom.
