The brow chakra (Ajna), also referred to as our third eye is the centre of divine wisdom and inner knowledge. It is here that we balance our yin and yang and rise above our limitations to ascend towards liberation. Our process of thinking is structured and it’s the place of vision and insight that allows us to manifest our aspirations.
Your brow chakra is located in the middle of your forehead between your eyes and common ailments are those relating to your migraine, headache, brain tumour, mental exhaustion, blindness, deafness, pain, dyslexia, learning difficulties and insomnia.
What’s the purpose of the brow chakra?
The purpose of the brow chakra is to provide you with your spiritual inheritance. If you believe that you will achieve success, you will do and the opposite it also true, in that if you hold onto believing that you will fail, then ultimately you will fail.
It’s here at the brow chakra that structure and governance is applied to your thinking process. It’s also where we claim inner happiness and peace prior to connecting with the divine through the crown chakra.
Do you ever wonder where that thought or idea came from?
Inner wisdom and knowledge is accessed here from the brow chakra that provides us with our psychic abilities, but if your mind is in chaos, you won’t be able to access it and your intuition will suffer.
Meditation for your third eye is recommended on a daily practice to achieve balance and understand clearly the answer that is required for you to move forward.
