Sixth Chakra - The Brow Chakra

Today I shall discuss about the Sixth Chakra, or Ajna Chakra or Brow Chakra. It is situated just above the nose, between the eyebrows. Famously known as the Third Eye. It is linked to the pituitary gland and associated with the element Space or Ether. The Sixth Chakra represents vision of life, self-knowledge, the ability to discern, creative imagination, clarity and unity.

The third eye is the seat of all the processes to do with expanding consciousness. Its activity enables us to create new situations, new realities in the physical and material world, and also to dissolve old realities because they have become obsolete, irrelevant. However, for the vast majority, this process is automatic and takes place without any conscious intervention. Most of the thoughts determining our lives are ruled by our rigid emotional conditioning and programmed by our own judgments and prejudices, along with those of other people.

Our intellect, our mind, is not always the master, but often a slave to our emotion-riddled thoughts over which we only have minimal control. However, these thoughts become realities, in the true sense, in our lives, because what we experience externally is always just a manifestation, in the end, of our subjective internal reality.

By expanding awareness and gradually opening the third eye, the human becomes increasingly capable of controlling this process of raising an idea or desire. Fundamental knowledge arrives via intuition, clairvoyance and all other forms of extra-sensory perception. So things that were only sensed very vaguely before, now become clear and precise perceptions.

It is said that if your Brow Chakra is open and fully developed (very few people have this condition), you definitely have a great capacity for visualization and you understand many things intuitively. Your mind, your intellect can concentrate easily and at the same time remain open to all the mystical truths.

Also you become more and more aware that the visible aspects of things are only an image, a symbol through which the spiritual element is manifested down on the material plane. Your mind is full of idealism and imagination. You may realize, from time to time, that your ideas are being realized spontaneously.

The more your Third Eye develops, the more your mind draws on direct inner knowledge of reality, the more you are guided by a reliable intuition. Your perception of the world changes completely. You break the narrow bounds of the rational mind and your spontaneously integrate all the information you pick up into your fund of knowledge. The material world becomes transparent to you. Your extra sensory perception allows you to directly see the forces at work behind the facade of appearances. Your intuition and your inner vision give you access to all the subtle planes of reality.

What happens if the Brow Chakra is not balanced?

Inharmonious functioning may lead to a swollen head meaning that the person is living almost entirely through their intellect and their reason. But in wanting to solve everything through their mind, they only accept the realities conveyed to them by rational thought. Such people are very likely to have highly developed intellectual faculties and to be endowed with a capacity for detailed analysis. However they lack a broad, global vision and the ability to fit everything into a wide cosmic context.

It's not unusual for such people to display intellectual arrogance. They only acknowledge factors that can be grasped by the mind and verified using scientific methods. They reject spiritual knowledge because it is not scientific, not real. They tend to try to influence people and things using the force of the mind, to demonstrate power or to satisfy personal egoistic needs.

So in general, an attitude like this coincides with an unbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra and a poorly developed Heart Chakra. If in spite of a few blockages, the Third Eye is relatively open, such actions are always possible, but they are definitely not in harmony with the natural flow of life. The individual feels isolated, and in the long run, doesn't gain the expected satisfaction.

If the flow of energies is stopped at the Brow Chakra, the reality in which people live is no longer that of the visible outside world. Their lives become entirely dominated by material desires, physical needs and irrational emotions. Discussions of a spiritual nature seems tedious and pointless. They reject spiritual realities because they believe they are just products of the imagination or empty and absurd fantasies with no practical connection. Their thoughts tend to agree with prevailing opinions. They can fall into a profound nihilism which stems from their failure to realize their grand ideas and aspirations. They always get themselves into this situation and it's the not world or other people who are the blame.
