Seeing your truth through the Ajna chakra

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

 

Benefits of opening the Ajna Chakra

Ajna controls some of the highest mental functions memory, recollection, intuition, consciousness and unconsciousness. If you use it wisely, awakening your Ajna chakra offers many benefits. You’ll experience increased intuition, have a better direction to your life, and understand the purpose of your life and soul. You can start seeing beyond the physical, the third eye does not involve the normal process of the mind, it is a different dimension by itself.  You will also be able to see things crystal clear.

  • Benefit of an Open Third Eye :
    Higher Consciousness – Zero Stress, Anxiety, Worry. With an open and activated third eye, everything comes into perspective, life’s often petty worries go to the wayside while you get a clear picture of your true life purpose — and how to fulfil it completely.
  • Third Eye Activation Benefit :
    Razor-Sharp Intuition: Harness The Wisdom Within. Your third eye intuition knows how to restore. Better relationships? Your third eye intuition knows how to attract. More career and financial success? Your third eye intuition knows the step-by-step process. Knowing and fulfilling your true life purpose? Your third eye intuition knows precisely why you have chosen this life at this time.
  • Third Eye Meditation Benefit:
    Align with the “Law of Attraction,” Manifest the Life you Desire. As your third eye opens more and more, your physical, mental, and emotional health multiplies, while new and higher level souls begin to naturally enter your life — resulting in new and better relationships on all fronts. As your activated third eye makes the correct path to success as clear and obvious as the staircase leading to your second floor apartment, meditation will help you manifest abundance as easily and naturally as breathing.
  • Benefits of an Open Third Eye: 
    To know what’s ‘Out There’, Look Inwards: Knowing The Best Path. By activating your third eye, meditation allows you to see, understand, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the previously hidden world, allowing you to optimise and perfect your present life using this vast reserve of new information.  

Negatives…

Like all the other chakras,  You have to have patience to open your third eye,  if it is over activated it could work against you and have negative side effects. Although it is a very dangerous point it is also the best point in the body. The biggest risk generally is falling into delusion.  The best way to avoid having any negative experiences is by finding a spiritual guide. Don’t rush into the experience. Take everything slowly, letting yourself go with the flow of your third eye awakening.

I highly recommend seeking a professional if you want to ensure you open your Ajna correctly and safely and also to ensure you receive the full benefits. That does not mean that you can’t give that chakra a little boost to your intuitive energy centre, here are a list of exercise you can do to boost the Ajna chakra.

  • Yoga

        Remember most people who’s third eye is open – is not because it was forced.

Starve the ego and feed the soul – True self VS False self

The ego is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and is sustained by power, because it lives in fear. – Deepak Chopra

Conditioned by society

From the moment we are born we begin to move away from our true selves. Parents and society subconsciously mould us into something we are not. As we grow up we forget our inner child and what used to make us smile and move into the ego mind – the false self.  Our false self is always the ego mind. Our ego is fed by us living in our false self,  which we are not. Anytime you find yourself egotistic chances are you are now embodying your false self. The Ego moves us out of the heart space, to move back into your true self you have to become ego less.

 

“Only the heart can connect us, the ego separates. let love guide you not fear.”

Ego Self VS True self

As humans it is only natural to get defensive but the thing is if we have our guard up it is part of our ego coming out and it will move us more into our false self.
Growing up we were conditioned to live up to society’s expectation’s whether it is what we see in magazines or on the internet, Subconsciously we process this as what is right and start to compare ourselves with other’s based on physical aspects. Moving us out of the heart centre and living as a false version of our self. We have relied on our ego for so long as a false sense of protection. It is a paradigm, The only way to change this is by shifting the ego mindset and moving back into the heart centre.

When we crave other people’s attention we will generally not attract the right sort of people into our lives whether it is our social or personal life, you get what you give and if we live from an ego mindset – our false self – this is exactly what we will attract back.

Belief vs emotion

Really we are not 100% happy when we are living from the ego. Most of us do not know who we are because of how society has conditioned our thinking growing up. We care to much about what other people think and this is what is holding most of us back, because of fear of embarrassment or fear of not fitting in.

We are all equal, we are not higher or lower than no one!  

Once we stop caring what other people think of us we truly become free.
Our true self is a valuable part of our self.

Integrity

You can not create anything positive and long lasting without integrity. By living and embodying your false self you are living with no integrity. It is important to always stay true to yourself, and love your self and your own company. No body will truly love you unless you love yourself. When you are living within your heart centre, which is your true self your life just begins to flow. You start to see the world and your place in this amazing world completely different, your purpose for being here will become a lot more clear. When you are living from your true self, you naturally start to realise your own inner potential and become a lot more being happy with who you are.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda Skeleton Dance – Integrity meditation

Paramahamsa Nithyananda presents a unique practice from the Agamas, ‘the skeleton dance’, to build integrity in the bone structure. Till now, the teachings on integrity were to practice integrity as a mental technique. But integrity is is a bio-memory stored in your bone structure, and in this video Paramahamsa Nithyananda gives integrity as a physical practice. Building integrity from the physical level is very powerful and fast, working from the inside out and pushing and manifesting in all aspects of life.
In the introduction to the technique, Paramahamsa Nithyananda also explains why we need integrity. With the power of integrity, everything we say becomes reality, even if it is not in line with the laws of physics and nature. Integrity itself is an important spiritual power, the power of words. And, our integrity is essential for receiving the initiations of the Master when he guides us into manifesting more and more powers. Since it is only through our integrity that the Master addresses us.

When introducing the technique, Paramahamsa Nithyananda gives this explanation: ‘You will visualise your skeleton structure. Without loosing power over your skeleton structure, you go on jumping, dancing for any song. Your body should be active, as many bones as possible should be moving, but your inner space should be holding the whole skeleton structure’s visualisation. It will almost be like a skeleton dancing. You will see in your inner space the skeleton dancing, but that cannot reduce the speed of your dance. Your movement should be there and the skeleton structure should be held in your inner space.’

Expressing yourself through the vishuddha

 Vishuddha, what it is?

The Vishuddha is the sanskirt word for the 5th chakra, also known as the throat chakra. The throat chakra is located in the centre of the throat and represented by the colour blue.
Our throat is the center of our communication and this is where we take in sustenance and express ourselves.
The fifth chakra is the first of the three spiritual chakras, to be open in the fifth chakra is to speak, listen, and express yourself from a higher form of communication.  If you where to learn to meditate on this chakra you will reach the grand state of Trikala Jnani—that is to say, one who is capable of knowing the past, present, and future.

 

The mind becomes free from the influence of our material world. noble and spiritual tendencies of the human mind.

When the energy of the mind reaches the vishuddha chakra a special powers of the mind gets awakened. 

 

Benefits of a balanced and aligned throat chakra

An open and balanced Vishuddha means that you can express yourself very well, verbally, emotionally, and spiritually, as well as have the ability to properly perceive what other people express out. You are able to have very truthful verbal expression, regardless of any fears about possibly not being accepted or be judged by what you want to say.

When this chakra is in balance we are able to tune in and listen to the guidance of our higher self. We can truly find our inner truth, and to communicate and live our truth in daily life. A balanced Vishuddha chakra allows us to easily communicate with others, and to be honest with ourselves.

The throat chakra is connected to self-expression, creativity, writing, listening to words and music, smell and taste. When this chakra is balanced, we speak and listen to people and what they have to say.

 

 

Opening your throat chakra

  • Meditate on specific energies and concepts.  By individually meditating on something specific we can help improve them. Mindfulness in a very condensed state.
  • Try Singing and playing and instrument. Singing is a fantastic method to clear your throat Chakra and you do not need to be a professional musician to play an instrument. You can easily pick up a snare drum at guitarcenter.com and have a few moment’s of mindfulness whilst also learning something new. It is good for your soul to step outside your comfort zone every now and again.
  • Let go of regressive emotions and experience. Regressive experiences can help us want to stay away from positive progresses experiences we might be faced with. Take a few moments out to have mindfulness, forgive and forget and let go. You do not want to get tied to these emotions which will ultimately prevent this chakra from being balanced.
  • Get a massage. If you get a good neck and shoulder massage your throat chakra will surely open up.
  • Soak in water and visualise your throat chakra balanced.  Use a creative visualisation meditation to see your throat chakra and energy running towards it. Emotions and passion are fluid and so is water. They flow, they change, they adapt, they change in spectrum etc
  • Think Blue. Have thoughts about a beautiful and bright blue light. Blue is the colour of the Throat Chakra. Inhale when you see this light and imagine that the light is filling up your throat area with cleansing and healthy light. When you exhale imagine that you are releasing all your stress and tension.
  • Use the power of affirmations. Using the power of affirmations is one of the most effective ways to balance our chakras. Our thoughts create our reality, and by regularly practising positive chakra balancing affirmations, we can do astonishing results in our lives.
  • Cry. It might sound odd, but crying is a form of purification that can unblock your throat chakra.  If you ever feel a ‘lump’ in your throat, it is a sign that your throat chakra could be blocked and you have to cry to help clear it. Next time when you are sad, cry it all out. You will surely feel better.

 

Blocked Vishuddha:

When the Vishuddha is not balanced communication breaks down. We may be unable to effectively let ourselves be heard, and, conversely, we may be unable to listen—to others, and to our own higher self. This chakra is damaged by all that passes through the throat—lying, gossip, alcohol, smoking, drugs, and overeating. Deficiencies in Vishuddha manifest as neck stiffness, shoulder tension, and teeth grinding.

A blockage of the vishuddha can cause you to become quiet, and fearful. The imbalance may also create feelings of anxiety, insecurity, and shyness when it comes to self-expression and speaking to others.

Below is a list of some of the non physical symptoms that might occur if you have a blocked throat chakra.

  • fear of speaking
  • inability to express thoughts
  • shyness
  • inconsistency in speech and actions
  • social anxiety
  • inhibited creativity
  • stubbornness
  • detachment

 

 

Affirmations to balance your throat chakra.

The unbeaten heart – Anahata

WHAT IS THE ANAHATA?

Located in the centre of the chest and represented by the colour green; the Anahata is the centre of love, warmth, compassion and joy. This only makes sense that it is the heart chakra.

The fourth chakra Anahata generally means “unstuck” or “unhurt.” The name implies that beneath the hurts and grievances of past experiences lies a pure and spiritual place where no hurt exists. Love is one of the highest vibrations in the universe. To actively show others compassion and love, you are raising your own frequency making you a magnet for all things amazing in the universe. Smile and the universe smile’s back. Love and the universe will love you back. You get what you give. This is more literal than anything when talking about your chakras as your chakras control your karma..

A BALANCED HEART CHAKRA

It is pretty easy to know whether you have a blocked heart chakra or not, just go with how you are feeling. Do you feel compassion towards other’s? Do you live consciously knowing that you are whole and connected to all life source?

When your heart chakra is open you are flowing with love and compassion. Others can feel your love and warmth, they feel loved and accepted unconditionally. People feel at peace around you, as there is no judgement coming from you. However, to much of a good thing is good for nothing. If you have an over active heart chakra this could also be dangerous leading to lower frequency emotions, such as extreme jealousy,  co-dependency and harsh judgement on others just to name a few.

It is always best to seek help from a qualified Reiki practitioner when unsure about how balanced your chakras are.

Signs your heart chakra is blocked include feelings of shyness and loneliness. If you are incapable to forgive or have a tendency to lack empathy, then you are leading with your head more often than your heart. In regards to the body, this can include poor circulation and blood pressure extremes. The heart, lungs and upper extremities are all influenced greatly by the Anahata.
