Before the artist's death, the people responsible for Prince's social media account made a beautiful tweak to the handle's icon. Previously, the image featured a drawing of Prince wearing tri-lensed sunglasses — two lenses covering his eyes, and the final lens concealing the center of his forehead. The new icon reveals the artist's two eyes are closed, but his third eye is open.

Correction: The piece originally claimed that the the icon changed today. The change was actually made before the artist's death. The correction is addressed in the story.
The sixth chakra, Ajna, is in the area of the third eye, which is found in the space between the eyebrows. It encompasses the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. An invisible yet powerful third eye, this is your center of intuition. A spiritual chakra, which means "beyond wisdom," Ajna leads you to an inner knowledge that will guide you if you let it. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization.
