~Third Eye Chakra
THIRD EYE CHAKRA
This center is found at the brow area between the two eyes. The element of this Chakra center is Light. This is where we have the “Right to See”. The main issue is that of Visual perception, imagination, intuition, and clairvoyance. The goal of this Chakra is the ability to perceive patterns and to ‘see’. If it is malfunctioning you may be experiencing, headaches, nightmares, hallucinations and are worried about tomorrow or the future (or put a lot of focus on the future instead of today).
Consciousness: This Chakra is associated with the deep inner level of Being we call the Spirit, and with what we consider spirituality and the spiritual perspective, the point of view from that deeper part of our being that western traditions consider the subconscious or unconscious. It is the place where our true motivations are found, and is the level of consciousness that directs our actions and, in fact, our lives. It is also from this point of view that one sees events in the physical world as the manifestation of co-creation among the Beings involved in those events.
