This energy center is known as AJNA, and is located between the eyebrows. It governs the pineal and pituitary glands. It is referred to as the minds eye, and is associated with self reflection. This is where one sees or witnesses their own being or their self.
When you have excess energy here, you may have trouble concentrating, intrusive memories, nightmares, headaches, and delusional thoughts. If you find yourself in this state, a deep yellow colour can be beneficial. Alternatively, if energy is deficient in this chakra, you may experience poor memory, poor vision, denial, insensitivity, and lack of imagination. In this case, the colour indigo can be helpful. When this chakra is well balanced, there is a guiding vision for life with a keen intuition. Additionally, one will be insightful with good memory and recall, and imagination.
For this chakra, the beneficial breath depends on if you are experiencing deficient or excessive energy. If experiencing excess energy, Nadi Shodana, or balance breath, and if deficient, Kappala Bhati, or breath of fire can be helpful. Yoga postures of spinal twists, and eye exercises are needed. Finally, creating beauty, journaling, and visual stimulation can help.
