Welcome to the 7 day third eye chakra study! I am so glad that you are here! This is the sixth week of the 7 week chakra study. In the next 7 days we are going to take a look at our perspectives, our intuition, and our perceptions of duality, life, and human nature.
*Just a quick side note in case you are new to this, we are partaking in a Chakra study/cleansing get-to-know-yourself 7 week full body scan that includes 1 week of focus on each of the chakras, which is a system of energy that originates from India dating back to as far as 2000 BCE (a long, long, long time ago!). By learning more about this system, how it works in your body, and how you can connect to the different parts, you will begin to establish a deeper connection with your mind, your body, and your spirit. We are one with the universe my friends.

We began by working with our roots, the lowest of our energy system and the closest to the ground. Our foundations. In the second week, we dug deep within our emotional selves and we identified not only emotional blockages we carry, but also how we respond to those of others. We discussed how over-active chakras can be just as menacing to our spirituality as under-active. During our third week we looked at how we perceive ourselves, recognized our need to have confidence and unity within ourselves, and became more aware of what we want in our lives. During our heart chakra, we examined our habits of forgiveness, empathy, self-discovery, and compassion. Most recently, we completed our journey with our throat chakra by connecting with our inner voice, how we communicate to others, and we began to open ourselves up to our higher self. We are working up the chakra systems and now are ready to recognize how our perceptions impact our ability to understand the world around us in order to read in between the lines, deep dive into our ethical understandings, and develop our intuitive nature with guidance from our higher self.
The third eye chakra lies just above your eyebrows at the center of your forehead. It includes the central nervous systems, the brows, forehead, eyes, lower brain, pituitary and pineal glands. Third eye chakra is also known as the light chakra, which is a combination of all other elements: air, water, earth, and fire!! It is also known as the Ajna for “sight.” When the third eye is balanced, you have a clear sense of right and wrong and a deeper understanding of natural effects. Your selfish tendencies are brought to light and you are less likely to partake in them and you are achieving goals that align to your higher purpose in this life. You have an established sense of balance between emotion and reason. You also have developed or are in the process of developing your intuitive spiritual gifts, you may be able to see auras and energy fields, and you have an overall feeling of enlightenment and connection to the wisdom of the universe.
But when ajna is imbalanced, things are difficult. At the physical level, headaches are common. There may be sleep deprivation by insomnia, and memory is impacted. We may also be having an increased number of hallucinations or nightmares, poor vision, or sinus troubles. Our hormones may feel imbalanced and we may be experiencing vertigo. On an emotional level, we are feeling like we have a lack of purpose or drive. We feel gullible, lost in the rational moment of thought, non-committal, forceful, self-critical, or disassociated with how your words, thoughts, and actions impact others negatively. Spiritually, we are closed off to the ethereal realm and to seeing our own future clearly. We may also have disbelief and self-conflicting stories of how we got to where we are, feeling unmotivated, or are blocked by our own pessimism or unrealistic fantasies.
If this is you (or if this is not, and you are just here to explore), you have come to the right place. By spending a full week, 7 days, with this energy wheel, you can get to know yourself and your connection to the third eye more deeply. You can work to fine tune your intuition, connect to the wisdom of the universe, and uncover your own life path. That being said, on this journey I have given you a set of daily experiences that you can commit to trying. These experiences may include the use of color work, music, crystals, journal reflections, or positive affirmations. Do one, do all...but in so doing any of them, keep your feelers on and have fun! I am so glad you are here to embark on this journey with me!!
