Chakra 6: Ajna ~ To perceive, to know • Intuition • Sacred Trust • The Right to See • Light
Ajna means to perceive and command. Our perception of the world has a double-edge. As we perceive the world, that is how we command it. If we perceive the world as dangerous and scary, then we will command to be shown dangerous and scary things. If we perceive the world as a place for joy and adventure, then we will draw to us joy and adventure. We can choose how to view the world.
The 6th chakra is about perception, clarity of vision and thinking, and psychic ability. It is where we store and interpret our memories, perceive our dreams, and imagine our future. It is where we learn discernment – and the ability to detach ourselves personally from our life’s lessons.
