This is the chakra that has to do with your insight, wisdom, discernment, and intuition. It’s where your willpower is balanced and your higher consciousness influences you. Spiritual experiences are processed through your third eye and it determines how you perceive your life and the people in it.
When it’s balanced, the third eye chakra brings you amazing insight and divine guidance. You may receive psychic flashes and prophetic dreams that you’re neither obsessed with, nor frightened by.
You’re stable in your own faith and spiritual beliefs, yet open-minded enough to listen to the beliefs and ideas of others. You’re calm and collected, not in competition with anyone - not even yourself. While you recognize you're a work in progress, you'll know how to push yourself to make the most of what you have. You have a good imagination and have no trouble planning for and visualizing what you want to manifest.
