How to Open Your Third Eye

How to Open Your Third Eye

The third eye plays a very important role in our lives.  It gives us the ability to see potential, to get an idea about the future. Everybody has a third eye.  Few people, however, know what it takes to open and use their third eye.

A number of awakening exercises can be performed to open the third eye.  If you manage to complete the process successfully, you will deepen your intuition and get a much better idea about the world and what the future could be.

Learn to Meditate

Meditation is one of the most powerful exercises that increases awareness and helps awakening the third eye.

When meditating, try to focus on the physical location of the third eye – on the forehead and between your eyes.  Focus your mind on the third eye chakra and keep your surroundings peaceful during your meditation sessions.  Pick a mantra and do not give up, even if meditation does not produce immediate results.  The more you practice, the more mental clarity you will get.

Spend Time in Nature

Spending time in nature is excellent for making yourself more mindful – being actively involved and aware of everything that is happening around you.  It is about being observant without getting judgmental.

Nature helps you focus and pay attention to the little things.  It reduces the clutter and all of the disturbances that stem from our urban existence.  We are so “plugged in” to our hi-tech world that disconnecting may appear impossible.  This is why people interested in opening and using their third eye will often take hikes in nature or visit remote places.

Use Essential Oils

The pineal gland is the one linked to the third eye.  Aromatherapy can be used to stimulate the pineal gland, which will lead to a state of much more focused spiritual awareness.

Lavender, frankincense, sandalwood, pink lotus and pine essential oils are all good choices.  These can either be inhaled directly or burned in a diffuser.

Overcome Intuitive Blocks

Old habits and emotions can create blockages that keep you from “seeing” with your third eye.  You still have powerful intuition.  The blockage simply keeps your third eye from functioning, which prevents you from seeing everything the world has to offer.

Some of the most common intuitive blocks include negative emotions you are holding on to, keeping toxic people in your life, having a job that is not satisfying and happens to be emotionally draining, and even junk food.

Take a good look at your life, the things that matter to you and the people you share your existence with.  It may be time to analyze your current situation and let go of everything (and everyone) toxic.

  1. Light

    Try to focus on the will of life. Life as a whole, one organism. Imagine how the world is going to be once all disputes about existence are settled and everybody is fully conscious. Most problems in the world now are the result of the fact that most of us try to fight the Will of Life, although this is futile. Everything is the will of life. Our conscious part of our body may fight, the subconscious part just follows it.

    So, how come our conscious part fights the will of life? It’s because we don’t live as nature shaped us, basically. We live in an artificial world, self-domesticated. We see nature as something ancient, obsolete, stupid, where we are the clever ones. From day one we are raised in a culture.

    Nature, life shaped us over billions of years of evolution. Problems emerged as spoken language evolved while mankind knew next to nothing about the universe. Through misunderstanding and fears things came into existence that didn’t exist before the were words. Man started to act as if these things existed. In a way they did, but not as man imagined them. It forced man on a long and difficult journey to explore the world, himself. Until he would understand. What went ‘wrong’, long ago. Who he really is, inside. What the will of life is, and why. What the universe is. The time of understanding has come.

    Everything, every property of the universe you experience, is created in the brain. Not the events or the ‘stuff’ outside, but the properties you experience. The universe is a kind of hologram or virtual reality environment, created in the natural computer the brain is. Light, color, sound, notion of space, time and so on. Life evolved them. Sensations could only exist if consciousness could exist, and visa versa. Both are basically the same. They could only exist if there was a potential in the universe, whatever the ‘true nature’ of the universe is. Obviously this potential did exist. To Life this potential is an omnipotent source of true creativity, intelligence, consciousness. Life as a whole has always been growing ‘towards’ this source, evolving new properties of the universe, expanding, learning. All to the benefit of Life as a whole.

    Our ancestors sort of knew this, by nature, as nature was their nature. But they could not understand it. As they invoked words for non-existing things (there was nothing but nature) and these things came ‘alive’ they forced themselves from the natural state. Only on the conscious level, though. The Will of Life always kept control, the Source never left man, kept raising him, so to speak.

    The root of the ‘real’ universe is mathematical laws that would even apply in an absolute void. It doesn’t matter what the nature really is, but think of an imaginary Mandelbrot-like fractal where we happen to be part of, as well as everything around us. Consciousness emerges from infinite iterations. Creativity, up to the most wonderful, complex universe we live in, comes from infinite consciousness. These are things we can never really understand. We have no idea how to create a brand new color. Or light. Or consciousness. What we can understand is that the universe in itself is neutral. That Life as a whole evolves, grows to the benefit of Life. Man can fight the Will of Life, the latter will always win.

    There is much more to this, but I hope this helps some people looking in the ‘right’ direction. The 3rd eye, so to speak, is not a sense to make contact with the spiritual world. You are already living in the spiritual world, we all are. Due to misunderstandings long ago, as language evolved, people started to believe they were actually living in a material world.

    Try to understand that Life, the Source, is raising you, whether you like it or not. It’s a law of nature. Logic. Life is not raising you to eventually get the life you may think you would like, right now, but the best life. For all. For we are from the same source, the same tree of life, we are one. Chaos and problems in the world are the result of misunderstanding, and people living (far) different lives than people would have if there were no words. As mankind becomes conscious mankind will live ‘natural’ lives again, mankind will be one again. Harmony, joy.

    Try to be an observer, rather than an actor. Let life flow. When reading or hearing things that catch your attention, try not to ‘materialize’ words to absolute values, but think in metaphors. Our unconsciousness has always been speaking to us.

    And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
    Then the piper will lead us to reason.
    And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
    And the forests will echo with laughter.

    If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
    It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
    Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
    There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
    And it makes me wonder.

    Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
    The piper’s calling you to join him,
    Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
    Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

    And as we wind on down the road
    Our shadows taller than our soul.
    There walks a lady we all know
    Who shines white light and wants to show
    How everything still turns to gold.
    And if you listen very hard
    The tune will come to you at last.
    When all are one and one is all
    To be a rock and not to roll.

    And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
