Intellect or intuition
Both qualities seem so different, yet both are within us and don’t have to interfere with each other. When our mind is active and we think about solutions or problems we have to take care of, our intellect is working, and we are consciously in charge.
On the other hand, when we let go of the active mind and let decisions or solutions arise from within, our subconscious mind is working, and it is more a way of feeling (intuition) what to do or how to handle a situation. Both are equally important, and the best way is to balance intellect and intuition within ourselves. It is like yin and yang.
If you are a person whose mind is permanently busy, it would be a good thing to let go and let intuition take over. It can be very peaceful at times. If you are a person who is dreamy and reacts more emotional, it would be good to train the neutral mind and see things from a different perspective.
We identify with our thoughts
The third eye chakra is powerful because our initial thoughts are processed here, and we identify with our thoughts. Both the conscious and subconscious minds are part of the third eye chakra, and it is a challenge to find the right way to balance them equally.
A balanced third eye chakra’s outcomes are a clear mind and balanced feelings that are not overreacting to all kinds of sensations from the outer world. It also can distinguish when to let go of something to find peace.
