27. Third Eye – Ajna – Conscious Body
Our third eye intuits information relayed from the prefrontal neocortex at the front of our brain to the pineal gland at the base of our brain. This information is then felt and interpreted in our heart. As we trust our heart’s ability to discern knowledge, we increase our intuitive sense of inner knowing and wisdom.
Knowledge is the process of gathering information; how we perceive this knowledge is wisdom. By merging the logical self with intuitive soul, we can see with the singular eye of the heart. Right knowing, is our ability to see with our hearts instead of our eyes. As we trust our senses we dream our world into being.
