THE AJNA CHAKRA

Awaken your intuition through the sixth chakra. Located slightly above and between the eyebrows. This energy corresponds to the pituitary gland and is the centre of vision, intuition and creativity. The colour is violet and the element is light.

The Ajna chakra is symbolized by a violet lotus with two petals. A powerful and balanced third eye chakra provides a strong psychic ability, spiritual awareness and the desire to excel further towards the cosmic union. A person with a strong Ajna Chakra has greater intuition, a strong sense of identity, and the ability to self-reflect.

You may feel this chakra is out of balance if you are feeling like its challenging to set and achieve goals, Inability to plan or set goals, having thoughts of denial, poor vision or memory and a lack of imagination.
