The 6th chakra is located between, and just above, the eyes. It is often referred to as the "third eye." This chakra deals with visualization, intuition, imagination and telepathy.
Organ/parts of body associated with the 6th chakra:
  • Pituitary gland, eyes, head, lower brain
The emotion for the 6th chakra is "knowing", as in an intuitive type of knowing.

The color is purple/violet, both spiritual colors.

When the energy in the 6th chakra is excessive, it can cause headaches, hallucinations, nightmares and difficulty in concentrating.

But when the energy is deficient, there may be eye problems, poor memory, inability to visualize.
