Ajna means to command. This energy centre is related to your insight, intuition, psychic abilities and quest for self-reflection. It is associated with your sense of individuality but knows that you are part of something greater. When healthy, this chakra allows you to “see the big picture.”
One whose third eye chakra is in balance recognizes unity in diversity, is able to visualize, has a good memory, strong imagination and can think symbolically.
Meditation is one of the strongest tools to keep this energy centre in balance as is star-gazing!
Signs of imbalance:
When energy is low in this centre one lacks imagination, has a poor memory, lives in a state of denial and has trouble seeing the spectrum of world views, often being overly intellectual and analytical.
When this centre is over active, one can be delusional, obsessive, have difficulty concentrating and suffer from nightmares.
