It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
The Ajna Chakra is that spiritual center where your intellect and intuition converge to bring you to the truest and highest intelligence you posses to help you navigate life. It is the center for visualization, inner knowing and dreams. Everything in the manifest world was born of a vision, a picture in someone’s mind. We must see it before we can create it. The third eye is said to be housed in the pineal gland in the center of the brain. This is the light sensitive gland, responding to day and night, producing melatonin regulating our sleep patterns. Deep sleep is integral for our well being and creates a vehicle for us to dream. Dreams can offer us information and clarity that may not be available to the conscious mind. It is said that a developed third eye chakra opens the door to lucid dreaming (being able to “be awake” in your dream in order to direct it or understand it) .
You can think of the ajna chakra as the house that stores our memories, dreams, and visions for the futur and it is our perceptions that create these images. So it is important to think about how you see yourself & your life. Can you picture yourself achieving your goals or do you have a “doom and gloom” vision of your future. We can directly effect our world and our life by strengthening our ability to visualize and increasing our trust in our intuition. Developing a calm, clear connection to our higher power we tap in to an abundance of opportunities and begin to believe we can achieve all we desire in our lives.
