Graphic from - A brief introduction to the Chakra System

Chakra Six: Light, Archetypal identity, oriented to self-reflection

This chakra is known as the brow chakra or third eye center. It is related to the act of seeing, both physically and intuitively. As such it opens the psychic faculties and the understanding of the subtle and top a lesser extent the archetypal levels (the more complete understanding comes from the crown chakra and the chakras above the head). It thus allows us to see clearly, in effect, letting us "see the big picture."
