“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Rumi, Persian Poet and Mystic 1207-1273 AD
6th Chakra Ajna Chakra (Third Eye or Brow) ~ Light ~ Indigo ~ Awareness
Your 6th Chakra: The Ajna Chakra (Third Eye or Brow) is the seat of your awareness and is located at the center of your forehead – the power of light is wisdom through contrast and duality; there can be no light without darkness. The power of light gives rise to your imagination and ability to visualize. This is the prana for making ideas, envisioning and image making. From Sanskrit Ajna can be translated as “Command,” and refers to one’s capacity for clairvoyant intuitive wisdom and to SEE TRUTH.
This is your vital life force energy representing your paranormal, extrasensory or supersensible capacity for clear seeing. The gift of a clear and open 6th chakra is clairvoyance.
As with all of your higher “personal” chakras (4-7) the 6th chakra serves to unite you with the transcendent state of consciousness for receiving Divine Guidance. Its primary polarity for balance and integration is with the 2nd Chakra (Svadhisthana or Sexual/Spleen). Your personal creative urge is integrated with Divine or Higher Imaginative Forces. In your “higher” chakras you can move beyond the “law of karma,” from action and reaction, to activate the “law of grace.”
A balanced and healthy Ajna Chakra imbues you with intuitive perceptions that are crystal clear and easily integrated into full self expression. You are a free flowing channel for inspiration and ecstatic visions are common occurrences.
Balancing your 6th Chakra helps heal your fear of truth and the shadow, obsessive compulsive thoughts and emotions, recurring nightmares, repetitive unconscious patterns of experience, inability to discern the difference between fact and fantasy, feeling of being out of control, blocks to creativity, imaginative darkness, inability to focus and manifest your dreams and fear of discipline and “showing up.
