Ajna or Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye chakra is located in the forehead a little above the point between the eyebrows. This chakra is related to our spiritual view of life parts of consciousness. It guides us on the motivations behind the actions. It is also known as the Brow Chakra. The Sanskrit name of this chakra is “Ajna”, which means Perception.

A balanced or clear Ajna chakra gives a person enhanced intellectual and psychic abilities. A person with a clear third eye chakra has the ability to perceive things well and has a good memory. Such a person is able to visualize well and has great imagination that she is able to project into her outer world. Such a person has no fear of death, no attachment to material things and does not need another person to complete her.

Excessive energy of the third eye chakra makes a person egoistic and manipulative. Such a person is quite proud and religiously opinionated.

A person with an unclear third eye chakra is undisciplined and non assertive. Such a person is afraid of success and reaches intellectual stagnation.
