Ajna - Third Eye Chakra


Element: LIGHT





Mantra: SHAM

Ajna is our 6th chakra and is associated with our 'sixth sense' - our ability to tap into the spiritual realm, our intuition, and wisdom. While our two eyes provide vision into the present everyday life, Ajna chakra allows us to see into the future and cross the barrier into the mystical. Anja means ‘perceive’, ‘command’, or ‘beyond wisdom’ in Sanskrit.

Strengthening the energy of Anja gives us clear vision. It reveals what is true, authentic, and important. It removes illusions. Ajna enhances our natural intuition and helps guide us forward, revealing the path we are meant to walk.

The seed sound of Anja is Sham which is believed to be the sound of the universe. Changing the sound of Sham creates vibrational energy which activates the Third Eye.

When our Ajna Chakra is out of balance we experience things like:

  • Headaches

  • Migraines

  • Insomnia

  • Close-mindedness

  • Cynicism

  • Attachment to material objects

When in balance we experience:

  • Gratitude

  • Open-mindedness

  • Clairvoyance

  • Lucid Dreams

  • Dissolution of Ego

Our bodies are made up of 7 powerful energy centers called Chakras. The chakra system starts at the base of our spine and moves up toward the crown of our head. In Sanskrit, chakra means ‘wheel’ or ‘disc’. The spiraling vortex of energy in each chakra center corresponds to different organs, functions of the body, or emotions. When our chakras are ‘open’ the energy can move freely but if an energy system is disrupted, it becomes ‘blocked’ and we suffer disease. The energy of your chakras influences your mindset, behavior, and wellbeing. You can help bring the energy of these powerful meridians into alignment through practical action.
