The Ajna Chakra is situated between the eyebrows, just a pinch up from the nose. This is the seat of your spiritual self. In Hindu and Tantra Yoga systems it is believed that the third eye [ajna chakra] radiates light and receives insight from the universe.

Have you ever felt moments of intuitive wisdom, when you knew something important even though you weren’t sure how you knew?

Maybe you sensed someone was in pain. Or you felt a voice calling you though you couldn’t see anyone. Or you felt a warning inside your self.

These are moments of insight that give you vital information you need to know.

Such insight comes from the ajna chakra (third eye). That’s why the primary benefit of third eye meditation is unlocking insight and intuition.

Unfortunately, most people’s ajna chakra is calcified and not open. The key to opening it is with spiritual practices, such as a combination of meditation and yoga, and in particular Third Eye Meditation technique.
