Understand the powerful benefits of your third eye chakra and healing. Your third eye chakra is the sixth chakra and represents all Earth elements combined. It is associated with intuition, manifesting, and spiritual enlightenment. For this reason, understanding your third eye chakra, including how to identify when it may be blocked and how to maintain a healthy third eye chakra, is important for your overall well-being.

Understanding your third eye chakra

The third eye chakra, also known as Ajna, is located on your forehead, between your eyebrows. It is connected to your intuition and insight. This chakra is also connected to the pineal gland within the brain, which regulates biorhythms such as sleep patterns. The energy of the third eye chakra assists you with accessing your inner guidance and intuition and allows you to see your decisions as that of an observer – to truly see and understand.
