Thoughts From The Void

Brow Chakra

Moving up to the next chakra we have the Brow Chakra. Often this one is referred to as the third eye chakra but early on in my journey I had a mentor who explained how this name can be a bit misleading. She said that just as the actual physical heart is different than the heart chakra, so too is the “Third Eye” different from the 6th chakra. Since this is a bit of a lesser-known part of the body with tons of mysticism surrounding it, I now prefer to align with this original teaching bestowed upon me. It just makes things less confusing for me personally.

The third eye references an actual physical thing in our bodies known as the pineal gland. While it serves a physical purpose, it is also believed to be the center of things like “psychic” perception. This is an area of discussion for another time, as I feel the energy center in question deals with so much more than just the “spiritual gifts” as many like to call them.

With all that said, we are talking about Ajna which translates from Sanskrit to “perceive”, “beyond wisdom” or “command”. This energy center corresponds with light. Now, this is confusing and a term that is often full of loads of bullshit. So, let’s take a moment and really think about what it means. Light is illumination and without it we would be in darkness. Not evil but lacking the ability to see with any level of clarity. Light is energy, clear, strong and pure. Built upon from the previous chakra’s meaning of purity, this is energy aligned with truth that is not rigid or harsh. This is the frequency that a balanced brow chakra resonates with. When this energy center is not functioning to its full capacity, we end up lacking light – lacking illumination and the ability to see with any level of clarity.

Disfluencies in this energy center are born out of illusion. When our perception becomes the only possible truth, this chakra becomes tainted and clouded with a disassociation from universal truth. We see here another example of how the entire chakra system works together. No one chakra can be perfectly balanced if the others are out of sorts. We can be close, there can be strength and disfluencies within the system; but harmony cannot be found if all chakras are not working together. They all build upon one another; they are a team. The brow chakra often becomes just about the psychic and spirit, but this is the center of our mind and perception of the world. In order to bring balance to the brow, we must ask ourselves where we are clouding our own perceptions. Where can we be more open to alternative views and possibilities?
