The third eye is responsible for your intuition. It is what we call the Sixth Sense.  It gives the ability to see what might be, it is how we see potential.

Everyone has access to their third eye. So when you get a feeling about something and it turns out that you were correct, you’ve used your third eye.

The third eye can be used in various ways. For example, if you are empathetic to someone else’s emotions you have tapped into your third eye to feel what they are feeling. Also, energy workers like myself use their third eye to feel energy and to manipulate it.

My number one piece of advice when working on opening your third eye is to be patient. I found that when people try to open it they rush and get frustrated when immediate results aren’t achieved. Patience is key.

When you open your third eye you are opening your intuition.  This is a brand new state of being and you’ve gone through life with it blocked or being unaware of it’s power.

Spiritual practices are not built in a day.  New ways of being are not built in a day. It takes consistency, practice, and patience.

So, if you are here looking for a quick way to open your third eye chakra, this is not the place. Remember, we are Goddesses and we each operate in our own time.  We do not get attached to time constructs. Once you exercise some patience with yourself, you are going to enjoy the process.  Before you know it and (possibly)  without you knowing it at all your third eye is going to get opened.

Also,  please remember everyone experiences their third eye differently.  Look for the subtleties. I have found that people are looking for the grand experience instead of looking at the smaller events that are occurring in their lives. There is a chance your third eye is already open but you are not aware of it because you’re looking for a  manifestation that may not be in the cards for you.

Before you go any further, make sure this isn’t the problem

How are your lower chakras doing? Your third eye may be blocked because there are some blocks happening below it. Don’t skip the lower chakras to get straight to the “good stuff”.  Remember that this is a journey and I beseech you to take care of your other lower chakras. This includes your root, sacral,  solar plexus, heart,  and throat chakras.

Guided Meditations are out there to deal with these issues but there are practical things you can do to balance the chakras. Sometimes it means cleaning your home, eating better, drinking more water, and standing up for yourself.  Dealing with past issues is a must as well.

Now let’s talk about some ways that you can open up your third eye. Remember to be patient with yourself and that every method may not work for you. Enjoy the journey and see what works.

Rubbing Technique

Take your index finger and rub it gently in a counter clock right position around your third eye in a circle. Rub it for about 5 to 10 seconds what you are doing is activating the third eye.

Then,  close your eyes and envision an eye right in the center. So where you were rubbing you are going to envision an eye in that space. Now imagine moving that eye up and down, left and right. Now, imagine it blinking. What you are doing here is tapping into that energy center and making it aware. This is the process of opening it

Overtime and usually nothing less than a week you will feel that part of your body pulsating, vibrating,  and/or moving. What I want you to do is follow your intuition this week even on the small things and see where that leads to you.

You will be surprised at the amount of accurate information you have been receiving.

Meditation

Meditation is a great way to open your third eye. Make sure you have located the energy center that is in the middle of your forehead between your two eyes. Find a quiet space, ensure your surroundings are peaceful and calm, focus on an object,  and do your thing.

If you want to amp it up,  you can place a clear crystal quartz in the center of your forehead as you lie back and meditate. During this meditation make sure that you focus attention on your third eye.  The clear quartz will amplify the energy for you. This is not something that should be done as your daily meditation practice but it is something that can be used as an add-on. I suggest doing this a few times a week until it’s opened.

Crystals

Surround yourself with crystals that vibrate to the frequency of the third eye. You can wear them as jewelry or you can carry them around in your pocket. I know some women that stuff them into their bras.

Some crystals and gemstones that work with third eye are:

Amethyst, Purple Fluorite, Sugilite,  Lapis Lazuli,  Clear quartz, Aquamarine, Sodalite,  Blue aventurine,  Blue Tourmaline, Stilbite, and more.

Affirmations

Start using any of these daily affirmations or chance to allow yourself to get acquainted and accept the abilities that come with an active third eye. Cover your dominant hand over your third eye and visualize a white or indigo healing energy to this chakra.

Say:

I allow myself to see the truth clearly. my intuitive wisdom is welcome. I am ready.

Or

I see and think with clarity. I notice the solutions to situations and I make positive changes now. I do not second-guess my intuition. I am one with the one.

Aromatherapy

You can heal and enhance your psychic intuition through aromatherapy. Smells stimulate something inside of us,  it is often associated with memory or emotion. Scents have been used to help people go deeper into meditation, and to connect with the divine for centuries.

Some herbs and oils you can use are:

Lavender, Clary Sage, Cedarwood, Cypress, frankincense, Myrrh, Juniper, Mugwort, Patchouli, Rosemary, Sandalwood, and hibiscus.

These are 5 ideas of many! Continue to work at it and be patient! This journey is a lifestyle and it shouldn’t be rushed.
