The third eye represents you intuition, inner awareness, wisdom and inner sight. It is the energy centre that governs your intellect (the part of you that makes decisions), and your intuition (the part of you that governs clarity from source). Our intuition can get into battle with our ego as our ego likes to rely on what is known to be fact. Whereas the intuition does not, is being fed information from the universe, from what our mind see as the unknown. A balance third eye will help these two minds work together in partnership with one another for our highest, greatest good.
A Balanced Third Eye
When our third eye is balanced your mind is balanced. You are able to listen to and trust your intuition (highly intuitive). You can see the world with sense and logic. You are able to see life from a higher perspective with clarity. Your will be able to remember your dreams and obtain messages from them as they will be clear and more vivid.
A Unbalanced Third Eye
When it is weak or blocked, you may experience a lack of imagination and not see things clearly with a feeling of confusion. You may also exhibit problems with sleep, and not remembering your dreams. Your thought may be foggy and things will be difficult to remember.
When it is excessive you may have overactive thoughts where your mind is racing. You may also find it difficult to tune into and trust your intuition. You may also find that you become over intellectual and arrogant, relying too much on the intellectual brain.
It is paramount that this chakra has the support from the centered and balanced lower chakras.

Intuition is your inner knowing, inner thought from source, your direct line to the universe to guide you in your daily life.
