The sixth chakra is known as the third eye chakra it is situated in the middle of the forehead linking the eyebrows. This Chakra is represented by the indigo Ajna mandala (command center), the element of the mind, electricity and light and it is also symbolized by spirit. The third eye chakra influences our capacity to see things that are yet to come into being or clairvoyance it is the foundation of our psychic powers.
When the sixth chakra is balanced we are able to see auras and spirit guides which help us to look into the past and see into the future. We are able to link into our intuition, imagination, visualize, concentrate, have insight, enlightenment and a finely tuned awareness; it also defines fantasy and reality. This chakra physically influences the eyes, vision, nose, central nervous system, brain and pituitary gland.
When the third eye chakra is balanced we feel in control of our lives and have the courage to do what we want. We are confident in our own abilities and have no need to look to others to feel whole. Our mental abilities and our sixth sense are working well. If this chakra is not working properly it can create negative influences in the physical this can be seen in the form of visual and sinus problems, headaches and nightmares, it can also lead to lack of clarity or over analyzing circumstances.
If the energy flow is too great it can cause a lack of concentration, headaches, making us confused, causes spiritual fatigue, psychological problems or panic attacks and depression. When there is a lack of energy it can cause us to be disorderly, unassertive, frightened of achieving, too sensitive to the feelings of others and unaware of what comes from the self or from our highest guidance.
