The 6th chakra is the Third Eye Chakra Ajna which translates to “beyond wisdom.”
This chakra opens up your mind to information beyond the material world and the 5 senses.
Extra sensory perception, intuition or psychic energy, all comes from the third eye.
There is actually a small pinecone shaped gland in your brain that takes in light. This gland, the pineal gland, is responsible for helping you feel awake in the daytime and sleepy at night. Long before brain imaging, ancient cultures knew this Third Eye existed, and they also realized that it receives information from sources outside of the five senses.
The third eye’s center is in between your eyebrows. It radiates down to your mouth and up to the top of your head.
What balanced feels like: A balanced third eye is a beautiful thing, and it’s really what you are trying to achieve when you start on a path to spiritual development.
When your third eye chakra is balanced, you will equally feel in tune with both the physical world and the material world. You will receive psychic information as frequently as you receive information from your 5 physical senses, but it will not overwhelm you.
When this chakra is overactive:
Most of us are very in tune with our physical reality and find it difficult to receive information outside of it.
That being said, if you have an overactive third eye, you likely spend most of your time engrossed in psychic activities like tarot card readings, astrology and paranormal experiences.
When your 3rd eye chakra is overactive, those activities become overwhelming and distract you from living a human experience.
How to balance your 6th chakra:
If you find yourself consumed with psychic information, take some time to remind yourself that you are a creature of the Earth.
Go to the beach and feel the sand on your toes. Dig your in the dirt in your garden.
Connect your body to Earth and repeat: "I am a human being. I am a human doing."
When this chakra is under active:
Most people have an under active 6th chakra.
We live in a world that often invalidates intuitive development.
Because of this, we close off our Third Eyes and ignore our own psychic experiences. Doing so can cause us to feel disconnected from spiritual experiences. Physically, you may feel headaches or have problems with allergies and your sinuses.
How to energize your 6th chakra:
Energizing your third eye will take some practice. You’ll need to devote some time to quiet, solitary meditation. At first, get used to the feeling of focusing on signals outside of your physical body.
Listen to your spirit and recognize how that feels. As you practice this, you’ll find it easier and easier to connect with the energy from your Third Eye.
