Ajna Chakra and its Crystals
Kundalini continues to weave her way up the Caduceus staff, she has now come to the place of intuition and seeing. Ajna or Third Eye Chakra located in the centre of the head slightly above the eye level relates with our Minds Eye of All Knowing.
This Chakra represents light, colour, seeing, intuition, vision and clairvoyance. The Ajna Chakra is linked with the Pineal Gland that is sometimes called the “Seat of the Soul” because it acts as a light meter for the body. Similar to the aperture of a camera, the Pineal Gland translates the amount of sunlight that our body is receiving to the amount of hormones governing our nervous system. In winter, our body’s metabolism slows down to conserve energy, and in the summer speeds up. The Pineal Gland or Third Eye Chakra keeps our body in balance and homeostasis with our environment and surroundings.
The element light is related with the Third Eye Chakra. Light travels the fastest of any element of the lower chakras, at the speed of almost 300,ooo km per second. Ajna Chakra allows us to see clearly the big picture, hormones are released and our body can now react accordingly to the what we see. A balanced Third Eye Chakra allows us to use and trust our intuition so that a sense of knowing (Clair Cognizance) surrounds us and our actions.
I also believe that particular crystals and minerals can help with our physical and intuitive vision of the Third Eye Chakra. The stones that I would suggest are: Lapis Lazuli and Sodalite. Lapis Lazuli is my “go to” stone because of its beautiful deep indigo (blue) colour. I am also fascinated with the long history of this stone that has been fought over for thousands of years and has been worshiped by many civilizations.
You can learn much more in my workshops that I conduct regularly at different yoga studios, or from my home.
