The Ajna Chakra or better known as the Third Eye Chakra is sixth of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought. Translated in Sanskrit as “command”.
In doing this chakra work we are establishing (Muladhara) and sustaining this emotional current or some would say this kundalini energy that is working up through our spine, opening up each chakra one by one. This current or energy is sustained and focused on until we reach the point of the third eye or Ajna Chakra opening. This opening only can occur when we drop the ego or the ‘I’, and you accept the space within as sacred space. Only when we uncover who God is, within us, and also separate from us do we really accomplish the goal of opening the Third Eye. Once you are fully awakened to self, one is opened up to the peace and wisdom beyond the conscious minds understanding. After reaching this state of gnosis, it is impossible to revert to unconscious and unenlightened ways of previous existence. We utilize a deeper access to the wisdom and understanding of our existence presently.
The Ajna Chakra activation is a wedding between the soul and the self. It is a point of complete consciousness or being completely aware of the realization of your soul. One can not continue on the path of unconsciousness, blaming, and pointing of fingers. The Kundalini energy that was asleep in the root chakra is completely awoken and the realization that you are pure psychic energy is the reality you now live with. When we speak of the psychic reality we are speaking to the human soul as opposed to the natural, animalistic, unconscious life. The soul or God within is simply a word for the non-me. In the Vishuddha chakra, we were simply bridging the gap between psychic reality and physical reality.
In the Ajna Chakra we become it, we ‘command it’. In the Ajna Chakra the psyche grows wings, and from this point, you realize that you are nothing but the soul. It is the point when the subject(you) and the object (Soul) becomes one. The subject is the physical you that can be touched, the object is the soul or the idea of you, the consciousness that is you. When you merge with this consciousness and completely submerge yourself into this union, then you will open the Third Eye Chakra. From this point, you will have the power to merge and harmonize the different energies that exist within you into one powerful energy that is you and transcend all previous paradigms of confusion.
The Ajna translates to “command” or “perceive”, meaning you have the power to perceive life however you choose to. You have to rid yourself of the old ideas to access this power, simply because your hands are full of old baggage, and your hands must be freed to grasp ahold of this new idea within you. Its said meditation on the Ajna Chakra grants peace, occult powers, the ability to leave your body at once, to enter other bodies, to become omniscient. To be connected to the source is a responsibility within itself, so understanding that you must purify yourself through doing the righteous work. To even understand this chakra fully one must understand the journey of kundalini, and from this vantage point, you will see why this work is necessary.
