CHAKRA 6, THE THIRD EYE: LOOKING THROUGH THE VEIL OF ILLUSION
The location of Chakra 6, the Third Eye: between the eye brows
Chakra 6 or the Third Eye, is located between and just above the eyebrows. Its position at the back of the head is slightly lower, around the skull edge. The Third Eye is the energetic caretaker of the face, eyes, nose, sinuses, small brains and central nervous system.
Furthermore, it is strongly associated with the hormones, because of the connection it has with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Together these two brain areas control all the glands in our body. In addition it has an important relationship with the brains and nervous system. And thus with all our senses. But the Third Eye itself is a sense too. However not a physical, but a spiritual sense. You could also speak of a metaphysical eye, which is able to perceive paranormal phenomena.
Another way of functioning, a different view of the world
The way the Third Eye functions is looking in a different way, perceiving a different reality. It looks so to speak through the veil of the physical illusion. To another, much more true reality: the energetic and spiritual reality. This is a different way of observing, giving you a different perspective. Which then leads to a different perception of the world.
This also gives a conscious perception of the world of energy. In doing so, Chakra 6 seeks connection with the reality behind the illusion. It seeks and feels the energetic connection to the world. And in the process feels empathy for other people. The Third Eye can imagine how life is for other persons, what situations can do to people. It’s an eye that looks beyond the measurable reality. And can therefore be called a world explorer. Of both our inner world and outer world.
The Third Eye helps us understanding the world
Chakra 6 deals with insight, understanding, comprehension and developing a clear mind. It wants to understand how things are constructed and how they function, physical and metaphysical. But always from within the physical body. It wants to know, gain knowledge. But ignores the mantra of science when they don’t like certain things: That has not been proven! This chakra helps you to clearly understand how to approach something and which way works best for you. And its thinking transcends rational considerations and therefore unlocks a much larger world.
A bad functioning Third Eye can make that you don’t see things clearly. Then you do not understand why your life goes the way it does. And you usually have no idea of cause and effect. Often leading to rigid views, dogmas and resulting conflicts. But your imagination can also become detached from reality, leading to confusion, illusions, delusions and obsessions. A good functioning Brow Chakra however, will see a broader perspective, the larger context. As a result your role in this world becomes clear and likely becomes more meaningful.
Chakra 6, the connection between physical and metaphysical
The Brow Chakra promotes fantasy and imagination, visualization, dreams, visions, symbols and symbolism, and how you can work with them. Chakra 6 symbolizes seeing in the darkness. That is, using your consciousness (light) to make visible that which is invisible. It’s the chakra of clairvoyance, clairsentience, intuitive abilities and extrasensory perceptions.
The Sixth Chakra in fact makes from within physical conditions, the connection with the non-physical. Thus unlocking a new world, a world of new possibilities. It is also the chakra of creation and manifestation. The Sixth Chakra helps you to create your own world, which can merge the inside world and outside world. And that helps widening your view, broaden your horizon. A fantasy world that isn’t a place of refuge, but rather an oasis to enhance and embellish your own reality. So that your dreams, your fantasies and visions can manifest. For where meaning and joy meet in love, the child of creation and manifestation is born. A beautiful, radiant baby, who would like to be cherished (Heart Chakra), to be able to develop wonderfully.

Chakra 6, the Third Eye, is the place where you get a view of the connection between your world and the spiritual and energetic world. Giving from your truth (Chakra 5) your life meaning, from a different perspective. Which allows you to use what is there, but cannot be perceived by physical senses. That what often isn’t measurable for science. But at the same time makes possible so much beauty: Seeing, Understanding, Dreaming, Visualizing, Creating, Manifesting …
