The Third Eye Chakra- Ajna

This chakra is located on the forehead between the eyes. It acts as a bridge between the left and right sides of the brain. It develops wisdom and consciousness allowing one to see and observe with understanding. This is where intuition, inner guidance, common sense, memory, dreams, spirituality and connection with the universe are accessed.

Signs of inbalance: Lack of clarity and ability to see the big picture, feeling stuck in day-to-day activities without a sense of purpose, headaches, difficulty making decisions, distorted sense of reality

Benefits of balancing this chakra: Your mind will be uncluttered and allow you to understand your surroundings and purpose in this life. You'll feel spiritual connections. You can easily self-reflect and be mindful. You may experience supernatural occurances, lucid dreams or psychic abilities.
