This Chakra is situated at the centre of the brow, represents the inner eye and Is sometimes called the third eye, or eye of wisdom. The ideal is to balance the centre so that the Chakra is fully opened to its enormous potential and so that
Spirit can also manifest itself. Sometimes the ego is known as our lower Self, and spirit as our Higher Self.
Extra-sensory perception is the ability to use intuitive abilities, which originate at the brow Chakra, assisted by two minor chakra’s at the temples. The ability to see beyond the physical world is called clairvoyance, hearing sounds or voices not in the physical world are called Clairaudience. Sensing smells and perfumes are not of this world is called Clairsentienence. Some people appear to be born with such abilities and if these qualities are recognised and allowed to develop, they often work as clairvoyants, mediums or Healers.
Children frequently perceive auras around people, believing it is a natural way to see things and of course it is, but thinking adults will take them to have their eyes tested.
The brow and a crown chakra’s specialise in transmuting the energies of the multidimensional universe. They are linked to the control system of endocrine glands that affects the physiology of the body from cellular gene to the functioning
of the central nervous system.
The pituitary gland is associated with the brow Chakra. Its secretions providing the connection between the brain and the immune system, hinting at how our emotional trauma experienced and recorded through the brain can create physical illness. Finally the pineal gland, which is receptive to light, becomes active when the crown Chakra is open. With its links to the pituitary it enhances psychic levels, allowing a person to see within, or have second sight.
Imbalances of the third eye Chakra manifest as frequent headaches particularly migraines or sinus or ear problems or endocrine imbalances. At an energy level, these problems can be caused by not wanting to see or hear something that
is vitally important to the growth of the soul. Follow the proverb that says do not put off until tomorrow something that can be done today. Working with visualisation exercises particularly those concentrating on the third eye will help
to combat these problems and encourage physical and spiritual well being.
