Learn more about the 6th Chakra( Third Eye) and ways you can balance and harmonize this energy center.
When you can open and balance this energy center, you become aware of illusions that you have created by believing and listening to what others think you should in life, weather positive or negative. If you do not heal and work on these illusions or limiting beliefs, they can hold you captive for an entire lifetime and can even be carried into further reincarnations as a karmic lesson you need to learn and grow from in other future lives you live.
The 6th Chakra (aka third eye) is also responsible for our intuition which resides in our pineal gland in between your eyebrows. This energy center is our ability to read the past, present, and future of our own lives as well as understanding the world around us. Balancing this chakra can guide us to hear positive and helpful psychic messages from the other side to heal our souls. In this chakra, we can also experience our connection high vibrational energies like God, angels, ,ascended masters (Buddha or Jesus) loved ones that have passed away or and thing else that resonates with you.
It is so critical to balance and harmonize this Chakra. The Third Eye Chakra is strongly connected to our solar plexus. They are both are in charge of "gut feelings". It is so important to understand that when we go through difficult times, having these chakras balanced will help you to understand these gut feelings and not get stuck in the difficult situations for long periods of time. This will allow your soul to soar to the highest peaks of life and truly live more free and at peace with the world that surrounds us.
Signs of an Overactive/Underactive Third Eye Chakra
Please keep in mind the importance of staying grounded into mother earth when learning to open this chakra. If you are not grounded and start to work on this chakra, it can easily lead to an overactive third eye.

Symptoms of an overactive chakra include difficulty concentrating, headaches, nausea, insomnia, and vision problems. You may start feeling overwhelmed, and in extreme situations, and consistently experience life in states of hallucinations or delusions, living in other worlds in your mind, and not wanting to be on Earth.
