Third-Eye Chakra 101

Third Eye: Ajna

The third eye chakra connects you to the higher realms of intuition. It is a key anchor point for your Divine I Am presence along with an anchor point for etheric life force energy. The third eye chakra brings the potential for a connection with higher spiritual awareness.

Your third eye chakra is physically represented by the pineal gland, asmall gland shaped like a pinecone in your brain. The pineal gland is sensitive to light and produces melatonin, a hormone that regulates your circadian rhythm. In ancient cultures, they believed this gland helped people receive valuable pieces of information from outside sources that the five senses cannot detect. 

The third eye chakra empowers you to clearly see through your inner psychic sight, and it also helps you have a clear vision for what you want to create in your physical reality.

How to Know if the Third Eye is Out of Balance

A balanced Ajna will help you become tuned in with the material and psychic world. You can receive information that is beyond what can be perceived, yet it will not frighten or overwhelm you.

When the third eye is balanced, you possess strong intuition, self-awareness, and have a heightened perspective of reality. The third eye is said to be a doorway in which spiritual enlightenment can flow through. 

A third eye that is out of balance can result in mental illness, closed-mindedness, anxiety, depression and a lack of vision,  imagination, insight, and wisdom. 

Signs of an Underactive Third Eye

An underactive third eye leads to the inability to connect with the spiritual wisdom and influences around you. It blocks you from seeing what’s within. 

You may feel disconnected from your higher self, the divine source, and helpers from the angelic realms. You may not be able to see anything beyond the physical world and may lack focus and divine creativity. 

Signs of an Overactive Third Eye

If your third eye is overactive, you may experience mental exhaustion and indecisiveness. You may have a hard time distinguishing what is fantasy, and what is real in the present moment.

People with an overactive third eye may be afraid of visions they experience during third eye awakening. You may lose grasp on reality and can suffer from delusions or hallucinations. 

Ego can take over causing prideful obsessions with spiritual gifts such as clear vision, clear hearing, clear feeling, and so on.
