What is Ajna Chakra?
- Ajna Chakra, also known as the third eye chakra, is the sixth primary chakra in the human body according to Hindu tradition. It is located in the space between the eyebrows, also called the “brow chakra”. The word “Ajna” is derived from the Sanskrit word which means “command” or “perceive”. This chakra is considered to be the seat of intuition and higher perception.
- Ajna chakra is associated with the pituitary gland, which is considered the master gland of the endocrine system. This chakra is believed to govern our intuition, imagination, and spiritual insight. It is also associated with the power of visualization and our ability to create mental images.
- When the Ajna chakra is balanced and open, it is believed to enhance our intuition and inner wisdom, increase our creativity and imagination, and improve our ability to visualize and manifest our desires. It is also said to enhance our ability to concentrate and focus, and to deepen our spiritual awareness and connection to the divine.
- There are several practices that can help to balance and open the Ajna chakra, including meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), visualization, and yoga asanas (postures). It is important to work with a qualified teacher or practitioner to ensure that these practices are performed correctly and safely.
