The third eye chakra is related to the act of seeing, both physically and intuitively. As such it opens our psychic faculties and our understanding of archetypal levels. When healthy it allows us to see clearly, in effect, letting us ‘’see the big picture’’.
After refining your energy body through the purification of sound in the fifth chakra, the journey moves deeper into your inner world.
