The sixth chakra in your chakra system is the third eye chakra. This chakra, or energy centre, focuses on your imagination, intuition, and clairvoyance. It is responsible for your insight, understanding, and abstract thought. A healthy, balanced third eye chakra enables you to recognise patterns and relate these to the ‘bigger picture’. Your thoughts, words and actions will be congruent and you might even possess powerful healing or artistic abilities.
Avoidance or weakness in these areas indicates a deficient third eye chakra. In terms of your senses, you might experience poor vision. In addition to your physical senses, a deficient third eye chakra will adversely affect your memory as well as your imagination. For example, you might experience difficulties remembering your dreams and envisioning (or creating a vision for) your future. Because you are unable to visualise, you will find it difficult to imagine that things can be any different from the way they are now.
Being out of touch with your intuition in this way can be likened to the opposite of consciousness. You might have a tendency to be in denial about your own or other people’s situations. You simply won’t see the situation for what it is and acknowledge what is really going on. As such, you will be insensitive and struggle to see different points of view. This closed mindedness will also extend to the area of spirituality in your life.
If you experience these types of symptoms, then it is likely that you have a deficiency or lack in the third eye chakra. As a result, you will probably see yourself as the intellectual archetype, and take a scientific view on everything. You might find yourself worrying and thinking so much that you end up feeling full of tension all the time. When you experience challenges or uncertainties in life, you don’t feel able to trust your intuition to provide the valuable information that you need to guide you through life’s obstacles. Likewise, because you don’t feel that you can rely on your own direct experience, many of your ideas are actually based on information that you receive from secondary sources. However, this doesn’t prevent you from being highly opinionated.
It is important to balance the third eye chakra in order to improve your insight, understanding, and imagination. The third eye chakra is associated with the colour indigo, and so introducing more of this colour into your life in various ways can have a healing effect. Other restorative techniques include playing memory games, meditation, and trying to use your intuition in everyday activities.
