Your third eye chakra is the energy centre that is associated with your intuition and imagination. It represents the congruency you have between your thoughts, words and actions as well your ability to see beyond what is physically in front of you.
Action: ‘I See’
Function: Intuition, seeing, abstract thinking, understanding
Associated Gland: Pituitary gland
Body Parts: Eyes, temples, sinuses, cerebellum
If your third eye chakra is open and healthy, you are a person who exists beautifully within the ebb and flow of synchronicity. This is due to your ability to hear and follow your inner guidance which makes you tremendously intuitive.
Your thoughts may easily manifest themselves as physical realities in a very short time due to your talent of visualisation. You perceive the levels of reality beyond the senses and may channel this into profound healing or artistic abilities.
Physical connection: Relates to the lower brain, left eye, ears, nose and nervous system. Intellect.
Psychological functions: Summed up as your capacity to visualise and understand concepts and your ability to carry out ideas in a practical way.
When your third eye centre is balanced, you:
- have congruency between thoughts, words and deeds
- can bridge thoughts-feelings-ideas with actions
- have strong will power
- are charismatic
- can receive guidance
- aren’t attached to material things.

A deficient chakra means you have weakness or avoidance around the issues of the chakra. When deficient, we can experience poor vision or memory, suffer from a lack of imagination, or have difficulty remembering dreams or envisioning the future.
When the third eye chakra is deficient we can have difficulty imagining or visualising, and find it hard to imagine that things could be different than what they are. We may have poor dream recall and trouble creating a vision for the future.
We may be out of touch with our intuition, and can be the opposite of conscientious. It can be hard to see different points of view, and there may be a strong tendency towards denial about our own, or others’ situations. We will likely be closed minded about spirituality.
Symptoms of Deficiency
If a chakra is excessive, you overcompensate with actions to try to heal that chakra. If this chakra is excessive, it can cause one to become detached from reality, suffer nightmares, delusions, or have difficulty concentrating.
When the third eye chakra is excessive we can be plagued by nightmares, visions and at the extreme hallucinations. Chakra excess here is usually linked to deficient lower chakras, and leaves people with a heightened sense of intuition, but without the ability to ground the information.
‘A person with a brow chakra excess tells you they are going to make a fortune with their new project, without being able to pay this months rent, or they are fantasising about their wedding with a person they have only dated a few times.’ Anodea Judith
