Ajna better known as the third eye chakra is the energetic centre connected to wisdom and insight. It’s here that we connect to our inner guru, the teacher within that guides and illuminates our way. Being still and quiet in this space can reward us with wise guidance which is beyond the rational mind. Meditating on this chakra shines a light on aspects of our lives that we were not previously aware of, revealing that which was previously unknown.
This chakra is connected to our 6th sense, that deep intuition of clairvoyance located in the Cave of Brahma deep in the brain just above the pineal gland. This small gland releases melatonin and is activated when we are visualising or in a dream state. Working with the symbolic language of dreams helps us to enhance our capacity to access deeper truths, to see beyond the mind, and beyond words. Meditating on Ajna allows us to internalise the outer world and with symbolic language to externalise the inner world. Through the understanding of this symbolism, we can visualise our place in a greater context.
This chakra draws us into the power of visualisation, imagination, and abstraction. It’s here that we can play with our imagination and create the visions of our desires. Visualisation is a powerful tool that can expand our consciousness.
When it is used wisely, awakening the Ajna chakra allows us to see beyond limitations. We can discern object from subject and the consciousness that witnesses both. It’s this awareness that allows us to remain steady within the chaos of external compulsions and to not over-react to every stimulus that we are subject to. It’s from this practice that we experience increased intuition, better direction in life, and an understanding of the purpose of our soul.
Focus here, concentrate here and you will see things crystal clear. Ajna is wisdom.
