What is the Third Eye? The Third Eye is the sixth chakra, associated with the human ability to perceive what might be, also known as the inner eye. It is the concept of a speculative eye that has the potential of providing foresight. The function of the third eye is based on the principal of intuition and imagination. It is often associated with clairvoyance, religious visions and the ability to observe auras. The concrete wall between the self and mind is torn down when the power of the third eye is cultivated.
Almost all of us have, at one point or another used our third eye. For example, when your gut tells you to not do something and you choose to follow that feeling, you have actually used your third eye which, like every other skill, can be honed and mastered through various rigorous mind exercises. Avid practitioners use their ability to answer the unanswerable and understand the connection between the fragile physical plane and enlightened spiritual state. It is often associated with the prefrontal cortex (PFC) area of your brain; located near your forehead.
