Brow Chakra, Intuition and Clairvoyance
The brow chakra and its relationship to intuition and clairvoyance are fairly well known. Many of us seek to increase our abilities here without truly understanding the concept of balance in flow of energy both within a chakra and within the system as a whole. Consequently, problems can arise as we work on opening up to the higher energies of intuition.
This chakra needs the balance, support, and stability of the lower chakra energies. Without such support we may experience obsessive fantasies, delusions, or hallucinations. Dreams, images, or memory can be split off from our conscious experience and therefore not available to help us learn and grow.
Signs of a Healthy Brow Chakra
A healthy brow chakra encourages health of the lower chakras. When this chakra is in balance, our worldview is one that is open and accepting without critical judgment. There is a firm grasp of present moment awareness of the world within the framework of the five senses that allows free movement beyond everyday consciousness into the realm of intuition and psychic experience
Excess and Deficiency in the Brow Chakra
Deficient energy in this chakra leads to a lack of discipline and inner vision, poor memory, fear of success, and an inability to understand subtle signals. The result of being unable to sense subtle signs is demonstrated through an unrealistic appraisal of situations and setting standards or expectations too high or too low. Other signs of a malfunctioning brow center are poor intuition, excessive focus on rational thought, difficulty visualizing or imagining, and poor dream recall.
Excessive energy in the sixth chakra can manifest in difficulty tuning into or trusting intuition. In addition there may be rigidity, self-righteousness, and authoritarianism, arrogance, and being overly intellectual or excessively rational.
An easy way to remember these types of imbalances is to think in terms of a heavy reliance on the head and no heart. This reliance on the intellect without the balance of heart energy is generally a consequence of drawing too much energy upward from the lower chakras, which damages the third eye.
A healthy flow of energy through the brow chakra allows us to focus our minds as needed while also allowing for disciplined imagination, the ability to accurately access intuition with healthy detachment from the material.
