Indigo blue - Third-eye, brow chakra: Ajna
The Brow or third-eye Ajna chakra center is called “the seat of the soul.” It governs our awareness, our ability to foresee things and visualize desired outcomes. It is the Clairvoyant-Intuitive part of our brain residing in the frontal lobe, which corresponds with our higher brain functions. Our ideas about reality and our ability to create that reality are derived from this chakra. The color associated with Ajna is dark midnight blue, or indigo. Vincent Van Gogh’s painting “The Starry Night” makes great use of that color. When it is working properly, we are able to visualize easily, our memory is sharp as is our ability to reason. We know almost instinctively how to help someone without their asking, and we trust our intuition and ourselves.
If this chakra is out of alignment, we may have trouble understanding our role in the creation of our reality. We may chalk things up to fate or luck. We may not accept we control a lot of how things turn out. Freewill always plays a part in the creation of our circumstances, which are partly based on our worldview. Having headaches frequently or anxiety about social behaviors would also indicate a possible problem in the third-eye chakra. Conversely, needing to dominate or to control situations and others can indicate that this chakra is out of balance as well.
To harmonize this area, we need to practice self-appreciation, tolerance and love. Psychic energy is very powerful. Focusing your mind on how good life is, even through the rough times, will help you to vanquish many psychic and physical aliments. To develop your intuition and third-eye chakra you can try meditating near the ocean or a lake. Large bodies of water help to develop and sooth the mind at the same time. We open up when we are in great natural spaces that are vast. Use a picture if you can’t physically get to a vast body of water, or just look up at the sky at night, it has the same effect. Expanse and expanding is the name of the game with this chakra.
A number of tarot cards are associated with the Brow Third-eye chakra. These cards are associated with psychic ability, wisdom, and pure brainpower. If any of these cards come up in a tarot reading, meditate on the ideas presented. Find ways to expand your mind and to help others see their true nature.
