From the Publisher
The Ajna chakra, energetically located between the eyebrows, is the sixth chakra. It represents your insight, wisdom, and developed intellect.
The Ajna chakra is essential to transforming your knowledge and random, undigested information to wisdom and calculated, digested truth, thus bringing you closer to Yoga.
The Ajna chakra is your spiritual eye chakra (third eye chakra), which helps you see clearly when functioning optimally. When dysfunctional, it keeps you in ignorance. No thank you.
Balasana: Child’s Pose
On your mat, come onto your hands and knees. Sit back on your heels for Balasana, Child’s Pose. Make sure your third eye, the spot between your eyebrows, touches the floor, or a pillow if you need support. Bring your arms by your sides to relax entirely in the pose. If your bodyweight is pushing you forward, keep your arms in front for support. Put all your attention on the spot between your eyebrows and repeat the mantra ‘I am willing to go within for my answers.’ Hold for 5 minutes, if it’s relaxing, while repeating the mantra and focusing on your third eye. Resist the resistance to look within.
