The Third Eye Chakra is the sixth chakra, called ajna, is known to sit in the center of the brain, and flower at the third eye space (the space in between and just above eye level). When you are able to activate your Third Eye Chakra you are harnessing not only psychic ability, but also the ability to perceive past a typical understanding of the human experience and why we’re here.
A spiritual chakra, Ajna leads you to an inner knowledge that will guide you if you let it. One of the most mystical chakras in the study of consciousness, The Third Eye Chakra is the place of your intuition and your ability to “see” the unseen, know the unknown, feel the intangible and connect with the invisible world of spirit. It is home to our sense of consciousness and is directly related to your senses of sight and hearing.
The color associated with the Third Eye Chakra is indigo blue and its element is light. When you look into the color Indigo, you may think of the color of the deepest part of the ocean. The color is mysterious; is it more blue? Is it more purple? Along with the activation of the Third Eye Chakra, we are perceiving past the limits of our understanding into new insights.
Third Eye Chakra Psychic Abilities
The Third Eye Chakra is essentially the marriage of the consciousness of the Spiritual Plane and the consciousness of Humanity. The energy held in this chakra is the link or open channel between the human world and the divine world. Through this place we are able to perceive farther and greater than the limits of our human understanding. Psychic abilities such as Remote Viewing, Telepathy, or Perception of the future can be cultivated or awakened within this chakra.
Third Eye Chakra Lessons
When you work with the Third Eye Chakra you learn to develop psychic ability, but you also work to develop wisdom, understanding, and insight about the world & ourselves. Along with an awakened Third Eye Chakra, come the deeper questions about life: Why you are here? How are you like the people who raised you? Why you do what you do? What is happening in the bigger picture of life?
The basic lessons of your Third Eye Chakra are development of the intellect, perception, wisdom, insight, clarity, clairvoyance, imagination, dreams, channelling, intuition, ideas, reasoning, connection to the higher self, and telepathy.
