The ajna, brow, third eye or indigo chakra is located in the center of the forehead.

An open third eye will help you experience spiritual wisdom and enlightenment. It is the center of physical and spiritual understanding. This is why it is sometimes called the 'mind center' chakra, as well.

This sixth 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".

This fact has given rise to the notion of Crystal, Rainbow and Indigo Children Characteristics. For example, see the following article entitled 'Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow Children' by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

The color for this 6th chakra is indigo, a combination of red and blue. It deals with inner vision, intuition, clairvoyance, insight, perception, imagination, concentration, peace of mind.

To help activate this 3rd eye chakra, flowers are extremely helpful. Clothing and lighting in indigo also stimulate this chakra.
