Understanding the Ajna chakra
Anja is the sanskirt word for the 6th chakra, also known as the third eye and is located in between and just above eye level. The Ajna chakra resides over the eyes and visual perception and the colour associated with the colour indigo, which is a combination of deepest blue and violet, It is also known as the wisdom centre and is associated with light. As you work with Ajna, you may want to see it as access to a cosmic vision, illuminating everything as it is without the filter of your past, your expectations, or your judgement.
Once Ajna is awakened, it acts like a gate into a place that lets you see beyond time and space. Scientifically, the Ajna chakra is at the pineal gland, a gland in your brain that many believe is important in sparking psychic abilities.
Many also consider the Ajna as the most powerful place of ethereal energy.
The Ajna chakra is not a physical thing. If your energies reach a certain peak in you, you have a new outlook on life. With your physical, you can only have a perception of the world looking outwards. Where as with your third eye you can view life either from inward or outward, meaning you can use the power of your Ajna chakra to look within yourself and really find out what it is that you need to do in order to be the best version of yourself. You are already vibrating at your highest whilst you are doing this, it is all about maintaining that high vibration.
The third eye is a gateway to spirituality, to opening the spiritual realm
