Yoga helps you to balance your Sixth Chakra, also known as Ajna chakra or third eye. The sixth chakra is the place of intuition, wisdom and identity. It is located in between the eyebrows. The organs related to the third eye are the brain and the pituitary gland. This last one is responsible for growth, metabolism and reproduction.

When the sixth chakra is in balance you can experience the following qualities:

  • Intuition

  • Clairvoyance

  • Visualisizing

  • Fantasising

  • Concentration

  • Determination

  • Self Initiation

  • You have the power of projection and understand your purpose in life

To the contrary, when the sixth chakra is out of balance, you can experience confusion, depression, rejection over spirituality and over intelectualising.

These are the yoga exercises or asanas you can practise to keep your third eye in balance:

  • Meditation on the third eye

  • Hakini mudra

  • Kirtan kriya

  • Archer pose

  • Whistle breath

  • Yoga mudra

  • Child pose

When you want to enhance your intuitive power, you can exercise with your eyes by crossing them. Place your index finger in front of your nose bridge, close to the third eye, and look with both eyes simultaneosly as you move your finger away from your face.

Meditating on the third eye help us connect with that inner knowing.

We are used to asking advice to your friends, family, partner, colleagues, etc… after all our higher self knows what we need to do. Try it out. You need to make an important decision? Sit with yourself in stillness and listen to the answer. Finally you’ll know what to do!
