Today we are talking about what is commonly called the third eye. Though the ajna chakra itself includes the entire frontal lobe and is the seat of consciousness as we know it normally, the fundamental understanding to be had about the third eye is this.
Thought is not self awareness. It’s not consciousness. It’s a sense like hearing, taste or touch. Where it differs from the five senses is that it serves an integrative function. It’s the sense that merges the other senses and makes them available for real comprehension.
The third eye chakra is not even a single chakra as much as a unified field generated by a set of chakras. Current neuro-psychology is discovering that our awareness is handled by a set of modules in the forebrain. Our ability to perceive anything in what could be thought of as an extrasensory way takes place in this chakra or region of the human energy field.
Is this between the two sides of the brain or at the front of the head? Between and at the root, just in front of the amygdala, behind the eyes.
So it is where your subconscious and conscious thinking happens as it does when you’re dreaming? Our dreaming perception is based here, and in fact our theta wave activity is centered here. The theta wave in the brain is the carrier signal for all other forms of consciousness. The theta wave signal in your brain gives rise to what they call the twilight state of consciousness. That point just between waking and sleeping when images first start to emerge in your minds eye on their own.
It’s the linking point between your mind and your brain. It’s in the third eye that awareness of your mind is received by your nervous system. There are cases in which a person is experiencing almost normal brain function in all other respects, but they are actually catatonic.
Like a waking dream? Exactly, unable to respond in any clear way to any experience.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
