Ajna is the sixth chakra and is connected to your sixth sense, inner knowing and intuition. It is associated with light and illumination. It is represented by the colour indigo and is physically located in between the eyebrows.
Is my third eye chakra in balance?
When the third chakra is out of alignment, ailments affecting mental clarity, but also symptoms such as eye strain, headaches, migraine, dizziness, hearing and memory issues can be present. Emotionally, one could suffer from depression or anxiety. When the third eye chakra is not clear, you may feel out of balance or have difficulty seeing the bigger picture.
When your third eye chakra is balanced, you are able to tune into your inner knowing, or intuition. An open third eye chakra, can enable telepathy, clairvoyance, expanded imagination and visualisation.

How do I maintain third eye chakra alignment?
A great Pranayama breathing technique is called Brahmari or the bee breath. Bring both hands to your face. Place the two middle fingers over your eyes. Allow the index fingers to rest on the eyebrow line and the pinky fingers under the cheekbones. Close your ears with your thumbs. Take a deep inhalation and exhale the word AUM with the emphasis on the “M” sound while creating a buzzing sound like a bee. Do this for two minutes or more. You can alleviate tension in the head and this healing practice will work to open the sixth chakra.
I also like to apply the Ajna Chakra Perfume Balm on my third eye area as well as my temples.
