27. Third Eye – Sensory System
The third eye connects the prefrontal neocortex to the limbic system (amygdala & pineal gland) within the brain and then relays that information to the heart where it is sensed. This process is how we develop the intuitive third eye by revealing and receiving information between the psyche and the soul. By engaging the heart we balance IQ (intelligence quotient) with EQ (emotional intelligence quotient.) The more we trust the hearts intuitive ability to discern we connect with its innate wisdom. Knowledge is the process of gathering information, how we perceive knowledge is wisdom.
Message: Open your third eye and let go of the monkey mind that is causing you to feel scattered or stuck. Slow down and breathe. Quiet your mind and connect with your heart. From this place, you will begin to see what is truly within you. Open your third eye by seeing with your heart instead of your eyes. This will help you understand the wisdom of your soul. The answer you seek is already within you.
“We cannot teach people anything, we can only help them discover it within themselves.” - Galileo
