All of the seven chakras are interconnected; balancing one chakra will create change in the others. If you are working towards expanding your knowledge and sharpening your intuition, you should focus on your third eye chakra.

The Third Eye Chakra

Located in between the brows, the third eye chakra or ajna is the sixth of your seven chakras. The Sanskrit name translates to “perceiving” or “command”, which is a fitting name for this chakra, as the third eye chakra is responsible for how you perceive the world.

The energy of the third eye chakra starts in-between your brows, just above the bridge of your nose. This chakra is responsible for the link between your mind and the outer world, embodying your ability to see both the inner and outer worlds. This allows you to experience clear thought and self-reflection.

Your sixth chakra is motivated by knowledge, reflection, and intuition. The third eye chakra symbolizes your connection to wisdom and insight, allowing you to access the inner guidance that comes from deep within your being. This enables you to cut through illusion and access deeper truths.

The gift of your sixth chakra is the ability to be mindful and live in the present moment. Your third eye chakra is the center of your intuition and wisdom, allowing you to open your mind to deeper understandings and expand your intuition.
