The sixth chakra (the third eye) is your line to creative energy, and to the kind of comprehension that transcends intellectual knowing. Its two principle functions are intuition and inspiration - access to knowledge that is not learned externally, hunches and visions beyond the reach of the five senses. The sixth is therefore the main channel for all the creative arts. Though sixth-chakra impressions are primarily pictorial, the sixth also acts in combination with the other chakras to turn concepts into worldly reality. The sixth and fifth, working together, enable you to hear original melodies and songs in addition, to details of songs remembered. When you dance with an open sixth, you are the dance - creativity in physical motion. The energy just pours through you.
Since the sixth chakra is the organ of subliminal vision, the way to "see" past, present, future, and entities on the "other side" is through the third eye. When the sixth is open and balanced, clairvoyance results. Those who wish their psychic and creative abilities to expand are advised to work slowly and lovingly at opening the sixth for themselves. On the other hand, consistent failure to honor one's intuitions inevitably causes a shrinking of the sixth.
Blockage of the sixth chakra can lead to an ultra-rational attitude, or, in combination with a restricted first chakra (root) to a diminished and negative self-image. Hallucinations and spiritual exhibitionism are symptoms of imbalance. Excess is personified by the "God-playing Guru, or by the kind of person who is both intensely overbearing and psychically sapping. In our culture, people routinely fog up and impair their sixth chakra envisioning by steady use of alcohol and/or processed tobacco.
It's very difficult to keep in touch with your own intuition unless you remain clear and receptive in your third-eye chakra. Almost all the messages you send and receive are interpreted through the sixth. So it's of utmost importance that you develop it and protect it. Once you begin developing and protecting it, you'll be able to open up your third eye with full confidence that you won't be invaded or hurt.
With respect to your general well-being it isn't necessary that you have perfect balance in the sixth chakra, or in any of the chakras. Certainly you'll want to keep advancing toward this end, but in the meantime perfection is not a prerequisite to accessing your third eye. I encourage you to utilize the powers of the sixth chakra to the best of your capacity. On that note, here are the oils that will best help you open and balance the third-eye (sixth) chakra:
