Third Eye Chakra

27. Third Eye – Sensory System – Energy Center

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.

13. Trunk

6_Third Eye Chakra - Middleworld

6. Trunk – Third Eye Chakra – Sensory System – Natures Archetype

The third eye chakra is located in the middle of the forehead connecting us to our sensory system. This is the place of intuition, inner knowing and conscious dreaming. It represents the middle world of the tree trunk standing fully present in the moment.

A tree trunk is seen at eye level; it is not buried like the roots or out of reach like branches. The trunk is symbolic of the present moment, our awakened or conscious state, what some call the middle world.

In native cultures, trees are referred to as “The Standing People.”

Trees paved the way for humans to live on earth by purifying the air we breathe. Trees provide shelter, tools, food, medicine, fire and spiritual connection. The Celtic culture of Germania saw trees as families. They named a family of trees (oak, beech and chestnut) “duir” meaning door. A person who could open the door of an oak was considered “oakwise” and became known as a Druid. Druids were able to merge with the spirit of the tree to gather information in the middle world, lower world or upper world. Trees inspired many of the great mystery teachings throughout the world in multiple cultures.

The third eye chakra has the ability to awaken the collective unconscious to become conscious.  By bringing the logical and intuitive self together we can see our world through the singular eye of the soul.

Message: Trust in your knowing by being aware and present in the moment. Feel what is happening around you and within you. As your intuition develops anchor it within your heart to learn what feels right to your soul. This will help you sort out what is true. Life is filled with insights. Begin to see with your heart instead of your eyes.

“One is wise to cultivate the tree that bears fruit in our soul” – Henry David Thoreau 


20. Metatron’s Cube

13_Metatrons Cube - Third Eye

13. Metatron’s Cube – Knowledge of Life – Third Eye Chakra – Sacred Geometry

Metatron’s cube is a 3D matrix within a 2D symbol. This occurs by connecting the center points of the 13 circles in the Fruit of Life with 78 lines. Here the circular and linear worlds merge to reveal Metatron’s Cube, or the Knowledge of Life. In Hebrew, Metatron means metered throne or divine place. In Judaic literature, Metatron is seen as the prophet Enoch, who became the angelic scribe of the Book of Secrets for mankind’s return to the Garden of Eden. When Adam and Eve ate fruit from the Tree of Knowledge they were cast out of Eden and separated from knowing the Tree of Life.

This mythical story in the book of Genesis, was written between 500-600 BCE, in response to Persia’s demand for a book of Jewish law. Judaism traces its roots to Abraham, the father of monotheism. He was blessed by the mythical Melchizedek, the King of Salem. Salem means whole and peaceful. Melchizedek is believed to be synonymous with Metatron and Enoch. Metatron’s cube is a reminder that all of these stories were created by humans to explain the meaning of life and that we ultimately hold the knowledge of life within us. The illusion of separation occurs when we stop seeing ourselves as souls within a human body. Metatron’s Cube also reveals the building blocks of life, the elements of nature known as the Platonic Solids.

Message: Trust both your rational mind and your intuitive senses as you awaken to a new way of being. By looking at your present situation from all directions it will become clear what actions you need to take.  Wisdom is awakening within your consciousness that will provide insights for your soul.

27. Dodecahedron

20_Ether - Dodecahedron - Third Eye

20. Dodecahedron – Ether – Third Eye – Platonic Solid

A dodecahedron has 12 equal pentagonal faces. It is symbolic of ether, which is unknown and unseen. Plato saw it as a model for the twelvefold division of the zodiac. Aristotle felt it was the element of the heavens or ether that represented divine thought or will, represented as the invisible energy of space. Combining a dodecahedron (ether) with an icosahedron (water) creates a truncated icosahedron representing the sub atomic structure of carbon. This is known as a fullerene or Bucky Ball named after Buckminster Fuller.

As carbon beings, we are made up of water and energy. It is remarkable that Aristotle understood this over 2000 years ago. Fullerenes are now considered the galactic seeds of life. The dodecahedron is aligned within the third eye chakra reminding us of the power of intuitive thought. The paradox is that without imagination, we would have no knowledge. Without knowledge, imagination cannot be developed. The truth is we need both. The third eye encourages both knowledge and imagination as we dance between the worlds of divine thought and earthly will.

Message: Trust your knowledge and your imagination. This will help you see that nothing is impossible. Use your wisdom and your intuition to see all of the options available to you and to choose which is right for your soul. It is important that you trust and believe in yourself. You do possess the ability to make your vision a reality.

41. Consciousness

Knowledge of Life

41. Collective Consciousness – Third Eye – Knowledge of Life – Consciousness

The collective consciousness is a set of shared beliefs, ideas and moral attitudes that operate as a unifying force within society. This occurs when the anima (feminine desire within men) and animus (masculine desire within women) comes into balance and harmony with each other. By awakening and healing the archetypal stories held in the collective unconscious mind we can move forward into collective consciousness. As the collective consciousness grows, the collective unconscious diminishes until we become unified, whole and healed.

To awaken the collective consciousness requires us to step out of fear and learn to trust in the lanquage of our heart. By opening our intuitive third eye we can begin to connect to others is ways we had not thought possible. In this state of unity consciousness each person and culture retains and respects the uniqueness of others. This is necessary for the continued evolution of the soul and for humans as a species.  As we awaken together, we heal the wounds and stories of our ancestors throughout time for generations to come.

Message: Trust in your knowing and transform your knowledge into wisdom.  You are now seeing what the great sages of the world have been teaching for thousands of years. Let compassion, love and nonjudgment reframe your awareness of your life and those around you. Take another look at something you had dismissed and see it from the perspective of the compassionate soul.
