Enhance your Insight & Intuition with Anja

So your assessment showed a Third Eye Chakra imbalance….

If you answered yes to four or more third eye questions on our Chakra Assessment, your third eye chakra may need some attention. Let’s take a look at two examples of an imbalance…

Meet Ella…

Ella lives by logic, not intuition, to her all that stuff is ‘mumbo jumbo’. Despite spending a lot of time thinking and analysing, Ella is always plagued by doubt. She finds it difficult to draw conclusions and to process and remember information. She is also prone to indecision. Ella suffers insomnia, and when she does sleep she has trouble recalling her dreams.

Meet Eric…

Eric is a dreamer who spends most of his time in a fantasy world created by his imagination which knows no bounds. He often feels spacey and disconnected from his body and the world around him. Eric has moments of profound insight and inspiration, but he struggles to make concrete plans to realise them.

Do either of these stories feel familiar? Was there something you really related to? If so, your brow chakra may be either deficient or excessive.

Located between the eyebrows, the third eye chakra, also known as ajna or the brow chakra, is associated with the colour indigo. Ajna means ‘to know’ and the third eye chakra has to do with your perception, imagination, intuition, memory, wisdom and insight.
