The third eye chakra is the sixth energy center in the chakra system, and it is located just above and between your two eyes, which is why it is also known as the brow chakra. It governs the brain, nervous system, eyes, ears, nose, pineal gland and pituitary gland. This is the chakra most famously responsible for your extra-sensory abilities, such as intuition, clairvoyance, and telepathy, but it also governs more mundane abilities such as your powers of visualization, dreams and imagination. Well-balanced, the third eye blesses the individual with strong intuitive, psychic and intellectual gifts, as well as openness to new ideas and people. Wisdom, awareness, objectivity, and the ability to learn from your experiences are all qualities of an individual with a healthy third eye chakra. However, if you allow this chakra to go out of balance, you will end up being rigid and unimaginative, with an over-reliance on rational and logical thinking. People with an imbalance here may also come across flighty and preoccupied, living too much in the mind, or at the worst, delusional with an inability to differentiate fantasy from reality.
