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.
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, Kelly Krishna Dunn-Cohen
It is the awareness behind all things. When you become aware that you are aware, that is the silent essence of the Infinite Being within you.
Your normal state of consciousness is in constant motion as you experience life in all its ever-changing forms. However, behind that consciousness-in-motion is the ground state of unmoving, singular awareness.
Infinite Being is that which is beyond all things. It is the state of pure beingness which is beyond all manifestation. It is the silent, unchanging consciousness which is behind all of Creation. It always existed and it always will exist complete within itself. It is infinity in every sense of the word.
Surfing is Fun, Fun, Fun. The enjoyable atmosphere that includes the sunshine, the beach, and warm water adds to the fun. Although learning to surf can be challenging because it takes practice to hone the skill of surfing, those frustrating moments are overshadowed by all of the fun moments you’ll experience.
When you are in a high vibration you can perceive your guidance. When you’re in a lower vibration you’ll match up with people in the world who are in a similar state. When there is a vibrational mismatch, conditions can shift and you’ll be guided elsewhere.
Your vibration alone allows or blocks all you desire. Make a list of desires and make sure you can feel really good about each one. If not, back up a little bit and create them a little bit at a time until your successful mini-manifestations show you that the Universe cares, and the heavens will always work, in every way, to guide you on the path to your dreams.
It is easy to close our hearts and look at what is missing in our lives, but it does not make us happy or add to our sense of well-being. The Angels are very invested in our conscious evolution, so they have come to let us know they are available for real life support. Whenever we invite them to enter our lives, changes occur in miraculous ways.
There are Angels overseeing every project, opening doors and connecting us with people and circumstances that will fulfill our dreams. A special Angel watching over each of our relationships. We can call these Beings of Light into our conversations and interactions so that Harmony and Divine Order will prevail for the highest good of all concerned.
When we turn our attention to feeling supported and nourished in everyday situations, it can feel as though we are being uplifted on wings of Pure Light. From that place, all is truly well.
People today turn to yoga, dance, and other physical activities in order to improve their physical wellbeing. Dance, as yoga, helps individuals control their body weight, and improves their well being.
However, from my personal experience as a ballet dancer with 20 years of training, dance can sometimes be painful for the body and actually increase the levels of anxiety. When I turned to yoga, I realized that every dancer, especially those at a professional level should try it.
Yoga Makes You Love Your Body
Dancers can sometimes be convinced that if they do not have the ideally thin body, they can never be successful. So as a result, they refuse to accept their natural body weight and put their health at the risk.
However, yoga teaches practitioners that they do not need to have a particular body shape (thin, flexible, tall, short, etc.) in order to do yoga, because yoga is for everyone! Dancers can learn to love their bodies every single minute of the day through yoga.
Yoga Connects You with Your Body
Dancing and competitive sports can sometimes negatively affect individuals’ body image and body satisfaction and lead them to unhealthy habits and behaviors, such as eating disorders.
Since yoga is not competitive, there is no wrong way to do it. It teaches individuals to listen to their body (heart-rate, feelings, sensations, breathing).
In other words, yoga connects the mind, body, and spirit and can definitely teach dancers how to listen to and respect their bodies and physical needs.
All in all, yoga can definitely benefit dancers and help them increase their performance skills, while keeping up their levels of wellbeing.
The benefits of yoga and mindfulness are far reaching. More than improving flexibility and strength, yoga and mindfulness impact the social, emotional, mental and physical health of everyone who practices.
Give it a try. Get on your mat, take a deep breath, and take advantage of the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness.
