Why is the sixth Chakra Referred to by Both "Third Eye" and "Ajna"?

The chakra system includes the Third Eye Chakra, which holds the sixth position. It carries importance as much as the other six chakras, each with its unique attributes and importance.

As you venture into the study of chakras as a beginner, you will come across various names for this chakra. A beginner's guide to chakras might introduce the term "Third Eye Chakra," but you'll also encounter the Sanskrit word "Ajna." Both terms are representations of the same chakra. However, the word Ajna is rooted in ancient yogic philosophy, "Ajna" tends to be the used in the several cultures. Within the context of the chakra system, "Ajna" is a fusion of "A" (signifying command) and "Jna" (meaning knowing). The term "Ajna" was forged by combining these two expressions in Sanskrit, giving rise to the ancient name for the fifth chakra.

So, "Ajna" carries the same significance and descriptive qualities as the English term "Third Eye Chakra." Consequently, whether a novice chakra enthusiast opts for the English label or embraces the Sanskrit heritage, it bears no consequence. Nonetheless, it proves beneficial to acquaint oneself with both names to avoid confusion and to appreciate their deep meanings. In English, the term "Third Eye Chakra" primarily alludes to its location, residing in the center of the forehead, symbolizing inner sight and intuition.

Both beginners and advanced students of chakras have the freedom to choose the terminology that resonates with them while exploring the human energy system. Nevertheless, the essence of both expressions remains unaltered, as they reference the chakra responsible for insight, intuition, and a profound sense of inner awakening. By harmonizing the fifth chakra, we unlock the benefits of heightened perception and inner clarity, both within ourselves and in our perception of the world. In the forthcoming sections, we will delve into the specifics of balancing this chakra and the effects of an obstructed energy flow.

How does blockage of the Ajna chakra manifest itself?

If the Ajna chakra is out of balance, we lack alertness and even knowledge. Only when the chakra is in harmony are we awake, aware and attentive. Our wisdom also focuses on higher perspectives.

However, there are also signs that describe the case when the chakra is blocked, in disharmony.

An intense, unrelenting and persistent headache is another characteristic sign of a broken Ajna chakra. Extreme irritability accompanies us at every step, we see every thing we have to do as a big problem. Even uncontrollable anger, extreme irritability and simple provocation are manifestations of the Third Eye chakra, which must be unblocked and healed as quickly as possible.
