THIRD EYE or BROW CHAKRA – Ajna – Chakra Functions, Crystals, and Balance


Where is the third eye or brow chakra?

Our third eye chakra is located on our forehead. It is also called the brow chakra because it is in the middle and slightly above our eyebrows. Our eyes, ears, entire brain, and brain stem are affected by this chakra. Chakra color is indigo blue.

What are the functions of the third eye chakra?

Our intuitive ability represented by the third eye is also known as the sixth sense or ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception). Having our third eye open means that our intuitive awareness is awakened. In this way, it becomes easier for us to get help from our spiritual and inner world while shaping our lives. We can get information about the event or people we are facing, which they do not reveal clearly.

Our pineal gland, thought to be our third eye, is also controlled by this chakra. This gland manages our biological clock by adjusting some of our hormones like melatonin. Although our pineal glands association with the third eye is ancient knowledge, scientific research has supported it.

Similarities have been found between the tissues that make up the pineal gland and the tissues of our eyes. Pinealocytes, found in the pineal gland’s tissue, are very similar to the photoreceptors in the eye. This suggests that the pineal and eye come from a common embryological root.


How do we know if our third eye chakra is in balance?

When our chakra is in balance, we add the information we gain intuitively to the information we gain in our daily life. While intuition is sometimes seen as an instinct or a sixth sense, sometimes it can only be seen as a subconscious situation. The stronger your intuition is, the more compatible you will be with your body.

Your intuition can help you get to know other people. Your intuition makes you particularly aware of negative energies and literally warns you to keep away from bad people. You can also feel the positive things. Your intuition can force you not to miss an opportunity when it comes your way.

Intuition can also occur as a connection to the mind: telepathy, aura perception, perception of other realms, intuition, or psychometry. If no failure occurs during the connection, your chakra is in balance.

When the third eye chakra is out of balance

When our chakra becomes unbalanced, the control centers in our brain, such as the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and pineal gland, can also become out of balance. Likewise, our mental connections can become unbalanced and bombarded with other people’s thoughts. In this case, various confusion can occur with mental overload.

With the complexity of our perception of reality, we may be vulnerable to neurological diseases such as memory loss, learning difficulties, schizophrenia, anger, epilepsy, and migraine. Biological clock problems, body temperature balance, and skin problems may occur due to hormonal disturbances.

We can use Anandalite, and Sugilite, to balance our third eye chakra.


When the chakra slows down, is underactive, or blocked

When the chakra slows down, is underactive, or is blocked, our fears and doubts may increase in the first place. With difficulty in visualization, we may not be sure of our environment, ourselves, and our thoughts. When this condition progresses, we may face a fear of failure called imposter syndrome.

When the chakra gets too fast, overactive, or blown

When the chakra gets too fast, overactive, or blown, we can lose control of our mental connections. For this reason, we can think and act on things that don’t really exist. Worst of all, we can assume that these things are not really special gifts just for us, and take on a tyrant and manipulative personality.


Likewise, when we lose control of our mental connections, our connection with reality can be completely cut off. We can create personalities in fantasy worlds such as paranoia and schizophrenia.
