The Brow Chakra

The Brow Chakra, the center of our “Third Eye”, is our connection to the wisdom the universe has to offer. Through the experiences we have, we gain knowledge, and through that knowledge we gain perspective. It enables us to separate the real from the imagined, the vital from the unimportant. It allows us to become intuitive, optimistic, and knowing.Ajna in Sanskrit, the Brow Chakra is located between our eyebrows on the forehead. It is said that the Brow Chakra resonates at a higher frequency than your other chakras, and can be activated through the key of Ajna.  Linked to the pineal gland, our sixth Chakra is particularly light sensitive and helps regulate the production of the melatonin hormone which regulates sleep and wake. It is also linked to the pituitary gland that regulates our endocrine system, including places like major portions of our brain, eyes, and ears.Because of its focus on visualization, a balanced Brow Chakra enables foresight, intuition, and clairvoyance. A person with a very open Ajna has a greater awareness of auras, chakras, and can connect to spirit guides easier than others. Lucid dreaming, which I’ve fostered since I was a child, is one of the Brow Chakra’s strongest forms of expression.

On the flip side, someone with a closed brow chakra may have problems with visualization or any type of imagination. They are overly rational and gain insight only by obtaining concrete information from the quantifiable rather than the spiritual or emotional. They may be more judgmental and have a narrower viewpoint than others. Physical repercussions of blocked brow chakra are eye infections, migraines and headaches, hearing problems, and neurological disorders.

When out of balance with Ajna, a person may be more forgetful, doubtful, or be an obsessive worrier and afraid of success. An overactive Brow Chakra causes one to be impatient or not at all present (think “spaced out”), overly dogmatic and one-track minded in terms of goals and opinions.

Opening your Brow Chakra allows you to enlighten every aspect of your life by understanding the relationship between the physical, emotional, and intellectual. By knowing the truth of all your processes, your life experiences ring more true. To help you open your brow chakra, meditation (guided or not), Qi Gong, yoga, or any other visual activity including coloring or drawing are good ways to achieve balance.
