27. Third Eye
Third Eye Chakra – Midde of Forehead
Energy Center – Sensory System
Meaning: The third eye connects the frontal lobe of our brain with the limbic system (amygdala, pineal gland, etc). This information is then anchored within our heart and soul where we can feel it and act upon it.
By opening our third eye, we reveal and receive information from our mind and our heart. This activates both sides of our brain, which helps us see the whole picture. Basic Intelligence (IQ) is one aspect of being human, emotional intelligence (EQ) is another. We have placed far more energy towards improving our basic intelligence. The more we trust our inner knowing, we exercise our third eye. This will help the IQ and the EQ to become balanced. From this place of awareness, we can reconnect with both aspects of ourself to feel whole.

“When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make an image in place of an image, then you will enter.”
