Third Eye Chakra Knowledge

Third Eye Chakra - Ajna

Color: Indigo

Verb: I see

Ajna, translates to ‘beyond wisdom.’ Known as the center of intuition, this chakra gives us the ability to look beyond the physical world, while discovering the truths in our world. With this in balance, we unlock metaphysical perception, psychic energy, deep intuition, insight, with a deep awareness and understanding of our reality.

This deep blue is found in the darkness of our skies or in the deepest oceans. Teaching that in order for us to access our third eye, we must first dive deep into the darkness of our world. The darkness that will reveal hidden truths, and teach us to question everything. For the deepest oceans, like our reality, have infinite possibilities. 


This chakra relates to the hermetic principle of correspondence. “As above, so below. As within, so without.” This teaches us that the planes of higher existence and lower reality happen simultaneously and are directly linked to one another. With this understanding we can predict outcomes in our reality by drawing energy, and information from the phenomenal world. Our active third eye will then use deductive reasoning and observation to predict outcomes on the physical plane which can help us rise above and control any suffering that may come our way. 

People with an overactive third eye tend to be involved with tarot cards, astrology, and other metaphysical activities. On the other end of the spectrum when a person's third eye is closed they lose touch with their psychic abilities and embrace a normal human life. We must remember that we are a balance of both, human and spirit and we must embrace them as one to be in harmony and live to our fullest potential. 


The third eye is seated in the pineal gland and controls the pituitary gland, areas of the skull, eyes, brain, nervous system and the way we use our senses. The pituitary gland releases hormones that control the entire chemistry of the body. This gland regulates the release of hormones in the other glands of the body. The pineal gland is the key to activation of the third eye, as it produces melatonin which not only helps the body sleep, but also increases serotonin assimilation in the brain, and puts us in a lucid meditative state to have a deeper divine connection. The autonomic nervous system is stimulated through third eye activation that helps provide the entire body system with the nutrients they need to function properly; affecting the health of our blood, stomach, intestines, livers, kidney, bladder, eyes, heart, saliva, and genitals. Symptoms of imbalance are headaches, panic attacks, allergies, and sinus issues. Ill manifestations are glaucoma, neurological disorders, cerebellum, and eye health. 

Like our eyes, the pituitary and pineal gland both react to light. So we need light to activate those glands to activate our third eye. The best light to energize the third eye is sunlight. Third eye activations can come in the form of mediations, yoga, and education. Gathering knowledge stimulates and activates the third eye through understanding the mind body connection. Eating blue foods like blueberries, blue algae, and blue lotus can help in activating the third eye.
