If you scored many yes answers in the first group: your third eye chakra may be too active or overstimulated. You may be set in your mindset which makes it hard to see other peoples’ perspectives. You might also trust your intellect, facts, and what things “look like on paper” rather than your intuition which can lead you astray from the guidance of your highest self. Try putting yourself in other people shoes by reading books and watching movies by and about people that are different from you. Carry your dumortierite crystal to remind yourself to trust your intuition even if it doesn’t make sense right away.
If you scored many yes answers in the second group: your third eye chakra may be closed or understimulated. You may feel like you’re in a fog and aren’t quite sure what’s real and what’s not. Daydreaming might also be a way that you escape reality, which furthers your connection from the world. Practice observing your thoughts and the physical world around you. Stay present and grounded by keeping a focus on your breath and your feet firmly planted on the earth. Carry your dumortierite crystal to keep yourself rooted in reality.
If you scored many yes answers in the third group: your third eye chakra is pretty well-balanced! You trust your insights and follow your intuition. You are self-aware and not controlled or limited by the mind. You make decisions based on reality and how your spirit is guiding you. Carry your dumortierite crystal to keep your third eye open and intuition flowing.
It is not uncommon to have yes answers in all groups but many people find that they have more in one group or that they find themselves balanced/overactive, or balanced/underactive. It is up to you how you interpret this quiz.
Imbalance in the Ajna Chakra can be caused by: being brought up in a closed minded or single minded family, not allowed to think freely but rather obey/agree without question, being dissuaded from following your gut/emotions/intuition, insights and perspectives not valued by family or loved ones, lack of emotionally stable life environment
Also societal conditioning such as: our general tendency to move towards linear, tangible, practical, logical solutions and life decisions instead of trusting our intuition, the pressure to do what everyone else is doing even if it is against what your inner self is telling you to do, mistrust/discomfort in anything spiritual that isn’t mainstream religious
