Ajna or third-eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the body. Ajna translates to “command” and is considered the eye of intuition. It is the power that has to do with recognition, imagination, visualization, dreaming, and perception. When a person has developed a strong Ajna, one can see the unseen and come from a deep inner state of knowing. You will sense when the Ajna is unbalanced it can result in rigid/one-way thinking, insensitivity, poor concentration, denial, and inability to see the future.
Many people are trained at an early age to not trust their own intuition. This could have been from parents or peers who made you believe that your senses were not valid, which created doubt. Children that were abused will disconnect from their lower chakras as a survival mechanism which causes them to over develop their higher chakras. An imbalance between the lower and high chakras can cause these children to escape reality through imagination and visualization. The long-term effect of this will cause people to be dreamers rather than doers. One must have balanced lower chakras as an anchor in order to have a properly functioning Ajna.
The Ajna also has to do with our perception. We all have perceptions and this is created from our upbringing, environments, and our beliefs. When perception is mistaken for intuition, we can get into trouble. Perception isn’t always reality. It is our limited reality. To balance the Ajna, we must challenge our perception and always seek reality no matter how uncomfortable it is.
Strengthening and balancing the Ajna is a process but can be done and requires daily meditation to function optimally. The results are very subtle and when they are not paid attention to, they can go unnoticed. The important thing when coming back into balance with the Ajna is to learn to trust your intuition and what you see in meditation. You will begin to know the difference between thoughts, perception, and intuition.
Ajna is a true gift and to have a fully functioning one will make you limitless. Check out this Kriya called “To See the Unseen” This specific technique helps with gaining Intuitive Vison. And everyone will have their own experience but this experience turned out to be a a visual intuitive experience.
To See the Unseen Yoga Kriya
Sit in easy pose with the right arm out in front parallel to the floor with the elbow straight, but not locked.
The palm to the right hand is facing up and slightly cupped as if catching rain.
The left hand is in Surya Mudra (ring finger touching the thumb) with the elbow at the aide and forearm facing out.
Close your eyes and focus on the tip of the chin. Strongly press the tip of the tongue to the palate behind the teeth
Mentally chant, “Wahe Guru” in silence.
Breath long and deep.
Practice for 11 minutes.
To End – Make panther claws (bend the fingers into the mounds of the hand). Inhale and turn to the left, then back to the center and exhale. Then inhale and turn to the right, then back to the center and exhale. Sat Nam.
When the Third Eye is activated we can command our own mind and command a Destiny. To see with crystal clarity. It’s been said that one’s Destiny is written on one’s forehead, more accurately, when the Ajna is activated we can live our life with an overview and navigate easily towards where our Destiny lies.
To crystal clarity,
