The sixth chakra, the Ajna chakra/third Eye is the seat of intuitions, connected with lower triangle. The invisible yet powerful third is key to living in bliss.

The Ajna Chakra allows you to see beyond physical eyes, let’s you see through the darkness and perceive the realms beyond time and space.

Unbalanced Ajna chakra characteristics can be:

  •  Being ‘out of it’ out of the body or out of touch with the body
  •  Confusion of what is real and what appears to be real.
  •  Hiding in intellectual analysis (denial of actual experiential reality)
  •  Inability to focus on anything.
  •  Psychic disturbance

Balanced Ajna chakra characteristics can be:

  • Being comfortable in any reality
  • Clear perception
  • Psychic abilities, particularly clairvoyance
  • Reliable intuition
  • Seeing energy within, and beyond, matter and form.

The colour of Ajna chakra represents freedom, open space, freedom, imagination, stability, and confidence. It provides clarity by linking the outer world and the soul.  It helps us to focus on the meanings behind our actions and thoughts.  It makes self-aware.

The Ajna chakra is also associated with gemstones:

  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Sapphire
  • Amethyst
  • Sodalite
  • Kyanite


Meditation to build intuition:

Four-Stroke Breath to Build Intuition



"In the Aquarian Age intuition will be the principle of identity.

This is a little meditation to see how we can tell our own pituitary to work for us.'

Place your hands together in Prayer Mudra. Keep the Jupiter (index) fingers extended as you interlock the other fingers to clasp your two hands together. Cross the thumbs.

Make your eyes nine-tenths closed. Place the mudra a little below your nose where you can look at the tips of your Jupiter fingers through the one-tenth opening of your eyes.

Inhale in four powerful strokes through the "O" shaped mouth (1 stroke per second = 4 second inhale) and exhale in one powerful stroke through the nose (1 second).

Continue for 5 -16 Minutes.


To Finish:

Sit straight, inhale, hold your breath 20 seconds, and stretch your arms out to your sides, palms facing upward.

That will give you power to balance your central spinal column. Exhale. Inhale deep, hold your breath 20 seconds, and stretch your arms horizontally and stretch your spine vertically. Make a T-square. Exhale. Inhale deep, hold your breath 20 seconds, and open your fingers, making them like steel. Squeeze your entire energy and bring it into your arms. Exhale and relax.

Use your own diaphragm, move your own central (channel), open your own chakras, achieve your own results. These exercises are time bound. Within that time, you should achieve a sensory system. Take a heavy stroke through the mouth and push it out through the nose.

Principles are simple. But to do all that you need an intuitive mind to control yourself. I hope you will give it a chance.

"You must know reality by intuition. Not by knowledge. (By the time reality becomes knowledge) it's too late."

The sound current AUM, it helps to connect with intuitive awareness. Regular practice helps prevent fluctuation of the mind.

Listen to the mantra:


Mantras for Ajna Chakra:

Meaning: The sound Om is one of the bija mantras or seed mantras. It is known as the universal mantra.

The mantra is also used as a primordial sound in most Hindu mantras.

It is also associated with the third eye chakra. The vibrations from the Om mantra are believed to cleanse and activate the Ajna chakra.

The Om mantra, just like other bija mantras, is chanted with the help of visualization.

Adepts practice chanting the Ham mantra by visualizing a lotus-shaped abstract object with white light rotating like a chakra behind the centre of the eyebrows.
