The third eye chakra is in the middle of the forehead. It is indigo or purple and represents the element of light. It regulates our psychic, cognitive, and sensory abilities. It enables us to think both logically and abstractly, function intuitively, as well as learn, remember, visualise, focus, imagine, dream, and understand the difference between fantasy and reality. Clairvoyance - the psychic ability to see subtle energy, realms, spirits, time and space-is governed by this chakra. Related organs and parts of the body are the eyes, the central nervous system, the cerebellum, the brain stem, and the pituitary gland.
When the third eye chakra is balanced we are able to learn and develop new ideas, languages, and information; grasp new concepts; as see or consider things from different perspectives. Both are long term and short term memory capabilities are functional and sharp. We can focus our attention, as well as tune out distractions, visualise with our mind’s eye, an intentionally shift our consciousness from awareness to a trance state with ease. We are able to process sensory information that informs us of both our internal and external worlds. Our imagination flows freely, we frequently remember our dreams, and our intuition is clear and strong. We are capable of and open to developing our own psychic strengths and abilities.
When the third eye chakra is deficient, we feel that our intuition is blocked or have trouble distinguishing between our intuitive guidance and our fear based in a voice or dialogue. We have trouble feeling inspired or connecting with our imagination, and have difficulty remembering our dreams. We may experience challenges in learning, remembering, and processing new cognitive or sensory information. We often have a limited perspective and experience an inability or unwillingness to change our perspective, see things from a different angle, consider new or alternative possibilities, and understand another's position or viewpoint. Our thinking can often feel clouded, vague, or unclear. Oftentimes, we develop eye and ear issues, add experience frequent sinus congestion or infections.
When a third eye chakra is excessive, we have an unduly suspicious nature, questioning other peoples’ motivations, thoughts, and intentions without any basis or provocation. We can be prone to projection of our own issues and feelings onto others, taking things too personally, and being overly absorbed with ourselves and our personal dramas. Frequently, we’re unable to focus, and experience a lack of clarity due to scattered thinking and impulses. While our intuition and psychic abilities may feel blocked, we’re actually experiencing fatigue with these faculties due to over use, over-dependency, or burnout. We will frequently have headaches, eye strain, or a runny nose.
