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
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, Ajna is wisdom. concentrate there, focus there.
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.
