Meaning and Mapping:
The Sixth Chakra is named the Third Eye or Anja meaning “two petaled flower”. It is located on the forehead, between the eyebrows. It is the center of intuition and foresight and its energy allows us to see both our inner and outer worlds, guiding us to a place of clearer and deeper understandings, spiritual contemplation and self-reflection.
Influences and Insight:
The Third Eye Chakra helps us regulate the body’s biorhythms, including time spent asleep and awake.
Anja is associated with the following characteristics; command, perception, vision, intuition, energy movement, clairvoyance, illumination, wisdom, insight, inspiration and creativity. Third Eye awareness requires that we focus on a different way of seeing, thus allowing us to move beyond the distractions and illusions of the here and now, moving into a more insightful realm.
Third Eye energy transcends time and allows us to establish a vision for ourselves and to actualize it … allowing us to “see” the bigger picture with greater clarity.
I am connected.
I am intuitive.
I am balanced.
