Third Eye Chakra is Responsible For

The Third Eye Chakra is responsible for Insight and intuition. The third eye is closely connected to the subconscious mind where people stake their claims of psychic powers. An underactive third eye chakra leads one to be forgetful, have a weak imagination, and be unable to use their intuition properly. They are those who turn left when their intuition points them in the right direction. One with an overactive their eye chakra tends to spend too much time daydreaming and is overly imaginative. A balanced third eye chakra allows one to be present in the moment while also being able to make use of their powerhouse known as the subconscious mind in regular daily activities.
