The gift of the Third Eye Chakra is seeing - both inner and outer worlds. It is located in the brain, at the brow, above the base of the nose. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as gifts of spiritual contemplation and self-reflection. The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths - to see beyond our stories, judgments, beliefs, and the false sense of self-perception.
The "way of the third eye" is seeing everything as it is from a point of "witness" or "observer", or from simply being mindful - moment by moment. It means examining self-limiting ideas and developing wisdom that comes from a perspective that transcends the duality of good or bad, black or white. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.
When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchrony. The right hemisphere's creativity and synthetic thinking are integrated and balanced with left hemisphere's logical and analytical thinking. The Third Eye Chakra is not only the seat of wisdom but also a seat of conscience. This is where you not only see what is going on, but you also know what it means. This is where your sense of justice and your ethics originate. When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.
