An open third eye chakra enables you to see things as they truly are, but even the slightest imbalance can wreak havoc on your psychological, emotional, and physical health.
The 3rd Eye Chakra
Positioned at the forehead, the Ajna chakra (as it is known in Sanskrit) is the sixth of seven basic chakras, or energy centers, in the human body. Sometimes referred to as the “conscience,” this chakra governs the pineal gland and your vision, intuition, memory, and imagination.
Indigo is the most common chakra color associated with the Third Eye. Additionally, violet, silver and shades of darkest blue/purple may also be used.
Third Eye Imbalance
When the Third Eye chakra produces an excess of energy the mind can go into overdrive. Consider how you feel after one too many cups of coffee and you get the idea. An overactive Ajna chakra can make it difficult to concentrate and, in some cases, can induce hallucinations.
On the other end of the spectrum, an energy deficiency can also affect your ability to concentrate on, process, and remember information. An underactive Third Eye chakra can make you indecisive, procrastinate, or become fearful of the unknown. Extremely deficient Ajna chakra function can hinder your ability to focus, keep a cool head under pressure, or dream and recall your dreams.
