Third Eye Chakra

The sixth chakra, the Third Eye chakra also known as the Pineal Gland or “Ajna” in Sanskrit, connects to our mental abilities, psychological skills, and how we evaluate beliefs and attitudes.

The Third Eye is the chakra of intuition, wisdom and our sixth sense. It is the spiritual center, which works with our rational mind in order to deepen our intuitive insight to see beyond the veil of illusion. The third eye holds a unique combination of facts, fears, personal experiences and memories that are continually active within the energy of the mental body.

Five signs your third eye is opening:

  • A dull sensation of pressure between the eyebrows. …
  • Increased foresight. …
  • Prone to light sensitivity. …
  • A feeling of gradual and continual change. …
  • Increased headaches.
