The Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra’s primary function is concerned with the understanding and analysis of reality. The Third Eye Chakra is inward looking rather than expressive in its nature. The eyes and the conscious workings of the brain are directly related to the Third Eye Chakra, whose main function is to make sense of the raw information received from the sense organs. It also works with memory and planning, by receiving and analysing information from the remembered past and the projected future. The Third Eye Chakra is the focus of our personality, for our view of reality and who we really are and how we see ourselves in relation to the universe.
When this Chakra looses its balance with the system as a whole, the mind has a tendency to retreat from reality into the self constructive realms of fantasy and delusion. The Third Eye Chakra needs integrated balance and a firm grounded energy if it is to be of real use to us. With an active but imbalanced Third Eye Chakra, it is possible to see visions, receive messages from the subtle senses (like clairvoyance), and to be bombarded by intriguing psychic information. Unless there is a balance and equal emphasis on the energies of the Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, it is almost impossible to determine what is valid and useful.
