What Is the Third Eye and How to Open It

See also

If you are one of those who read a lot about esoteric topics or who practices yoga, then you are bound to come across the concept of “third eye.” The third eye is frequently depicted in an artistic manner as the all-seeing eye and it is physically suggested in the Hindu culture by the red dot placed between one’s brows, slightly above them. Whether you believe in its existence or not, the third eye is a part of you.

Known as the “brow chakra,” the third eye is referred to in the western culture as the "mind's eye” which facilitates the visualization process. Don’t think of it as of a physical eye, part of your physical body, because this eye is directed inwards, not outwards, being correlated with the pineal gland in your brain.

Being a place of both perception and power, the third eye acts as receiver and transmitter at the same time. It has the ability to connect to certain energies in our mind which we don’t consciously access, while receiving energy from the universe that we don’t normally perceive.

The third eye is one of the most important energy portals in our bodies, allowing us to filter our wisdom, imagination, intuition, and creativity. It represents an open door to the higher realms of the inner self, a stairway to more elevated states of consciousness. If you open your third eye, you will experience improved intuitive power, a stronger connection to your divine nature, and an overall improved usage of your psychic abilities.

For those who want to enjoy the above-mentioned benefits of an open third eye, they should engage in practices such as meditation and yoga, while constantly focusing on the third eye, visualizing it as it opens and establishes connections for receiving and transmitting.

You will know when your third eye is open because you will experience incredible clarity of mind and focus, realizing that you think more deeply than ever before. Other things that you may notice are: growth of perception and intuition, a better sense of other persons’ feeling and thoughts, increased awareness of your environment and the opportunities it offers.

Moreover, those who have opened their third eye have reported that their dreams became considerably more vivid or that they experienced lucid dreaming more frequently. Artistic abilities improved as well, urging them to create.

Although opening your third eye sounds like a terrifying experience for some, it is actually a rewarding experience. It is a means of drastically changing your life, allowing you to live life to the fullest.
