The third eye is located above the eyebrows in the middle of forehead.
The 3rd eye or brow chakra is the place where you connect with and develop trust in your intuition, perceptions, psychic talents, wisdom and inner vision. It is the centre of both your conscious and unconscious beliefs, the place where you interpret your thoughts, pains and losses to reach a greater understanding of your true self.
You connect to a higher power to receive insightful visions of the past, present and future so you can separate truth from illusion. You use your imagination and power to visualize, envision and imagine a new way of being.
When out of balance you may have headaches, migraines, acute sinusitis, vision and eye problems. You may not believe in your intuition or clairvoyance and dismiss others as fakes who develop and use their intuition or psychic talents to help themselves and others. You may be unable to access or assess your intuition, be disconnected from your spiritual truths, confused about your life purpose or scared to be who you truly are.
Some questions to consider and perhaps journal about
Do you consider yourself an intuitive person?
Do you feel disconnected from your intuition?
Do you resist or ignore your intuition?
Do you have an active imagination?
Are you limited or expanded by your imagination?
Do you believe you are a human being having a spiritual experience or a spiritual being having a human experience?
Do you believe you are responsible for your life?
Do you believe your life has meaning?
