What Happens When You Open Your Third Eye

Today’s topic is something which interests many of you, as we have received countless emails asking what happens when you open your third eye.

Through meditation or some spiritual practice, many people find they can tap into information that they couldn’t previously couldn’t, via their intuition or third eye.

In Hindu culture, the third eye refers to the brow chakra, in between the eyes, and is also known as the inner eye. 

Ideas about third eye opening practices span different spiritual and cultural practices, with varying opinions about its power.

To me, this is a way to turn the focus inwards, to connect to your higher consciousness, your intuition.

Most of us live busy lives, and can easily be so overwhelmed by the demands of life that we lose connection with our inner power.

Focusing on the third eye is a way to reconnect with our inner power.

Here’s a little more about what to expect when you open your third eye.

1. You’ll Clear Energy Blocks

When you open your third eye through meditation, you’ll gradually become more self aware, and more able to identify and release self limiting thoughts.

Anger, judgements, fears and projections can be incredibly destructive.

Don’t expect this to be immediate, but with practice you’ll be able to release more and more.

The more you come back to your place of peace and connection with your third eye intuition, the more you will be able to let it guide you.

2. You’ll become more in-tune with your body

Connecting with your third eye is essentially a mind-body practice.

Through the breath and mindful awareness, you’ll become more in-tune with the energy and sensations in your body.

Tips to bring harmony to the body

  • Spend time outdoors doing grounding activities. Find some grass, sand, or dirt to stand on with bare feet, and spend some time being present through your breathing.
  • Take ten very conscious deep breaths every time you feel yourself getting overwhelmed. Go for a walk in the woods or somewhere very close to nature and do that as often as possible.
  • Exercise, sports, and anything where you’re engaging your physical body in a positive way is a very great way to balance all of the energy that is now coming into your being.

It’s all about being present in the body and building that mind-body connection.

This connection will strengthen as you practice your meditation, and as you practice body awareness like the tips above throughout your days.

3. Your Vibration of Energy Will Become More Aligned

What happens when you open your third eye is you will manage to balance and put in total harmony all of your chakras.

Essentially, as you find peace within yourself, you’ll uncover whole new understandings of the things you know.

Your perspective of life will broaden and will never be the same as before.

Being in alignment, you will start to manifest your wishes much faster than you did before. Your thoughts will be much stronger, and you will gain a greater ability to influence your reality. 

Don’t worry if you have negative thoughts. As you raise your vibration, thoughts that carry a negative energy and bring you down will have less of an influence. You can begin to identify them, and decide not to honor them. You will start to cherish the reality you have.

4. You Will Become An Objective Observer

As you strengthen your connection to your inner world, try and focus on being an objective observer of your inner world.

Watch the thoughts that pass through your mind from moment to moment, and understand that they do not need to control you.

Notice unproductive or negative thoughts, and label them.

It’s as simple as telling yourself, right now I am having a negative thought. Then do your best to accept that the thought happened, and move on with your day.

An important note is to avoid judgement. Don’t beat yourself up about negative thoughts, simply notice them and label them.

The more you do this, the more you are going to be able to easily connect with your third eye, inner eye, higher consciousness… and let your intuition guide your path forward.

5. Your Connection Will Strengthen With Practice

If you’re new to working with your inner world, you should begin first with a simple guided meditation practice like this one.

As you strengthen your mindful awareness and connection with your inner world, you can begin to go deeper.

I hope that you all enjoy the information you get today, and this will satisfy your interest in what happens when you open your third eye.

  1. I really want to open mine, but I feel as if it could harm me mentally in some sort of way. Is that a possibility to consider?

  2. When I was just a child I would have visions that would make me get sick. I did not know what it was so I would just call it “my feelings” when I was little it would make me throw up but as I got older I would just gag.. My mom use to tell me that I was just psychic but a few years ago I got tests done because my doctor thought that it may be epileptic seizures and that I might have epilepsy, I didn’t. Could this be related to my third eye? Could I have opened my third eye as a child without knowing it? I often here my name as if someone was in the room with me and sometimes I can feel or see something walk/go past me but could my feeling of fear be holding me back from anything trying to communicate with me?

  3. My name is Linda and my third eye opened on its own even before I stared meditating. After we buried my mom, came back to Florida, I closed my eyes and Omgoodness saw so many faces, so vivid unreal. Many things starting happening.

  4. I have been working on opening my third eye for almost a year.

    Every night I go through the same meditation exercise. I have a feeling there is a connection between tricks of light inside the eye and the subconscious.

    A lot of people say they see an eye or pine cone shape and purple circle and a starry sky…these are loose descriptions.

    If you’ve every pressed ur palms against your eyes you’ve seen bright psychedelic checkerboard patterns.

    The third eye practise creates a gentler trick of light patterns in the eye. And staring forward with your eyes shut will soon give you a throbbing sensation or slight headache at the bridge of your nose or between your eyes where they claim the third eye is.

    This stuff isn’t metaphysical or spooky…but what is weird….and I mean really exciting is what a lot of people call lucid dreaming.

    The third eye meditation practise unleashes a heightened day dream state that is wild detailed and vibrant…and fleeting.

    You suddenly see scenes or people or stories that are completely unfamiliar and freakish. The dreams appear and evaporate and they seem to have no connection to your waking life. Sleep dreams do. I’m sleep you experience familiar people or places morphing and changing.

    But a lucid dream is like a 60 second sci-fi fever nightmare. It plays out and moved on. You are awake. Still awake.

    I don’t know if the third eye is really a small dormant organ in your brain or a tool to see auras or the future but it does seem like a neurological switch…stare toward with your eyes closed laying on your back…keep on looking forward, focus on your breathe and let go of your typical “busy” thoughts.

    It may take awhile but eventually you will see colors soft shapes sparkles….keeping going and you will experience wild foreign daydreams. If you fall asleep during this process you may notice your sleep dreams are more intense.

    That’s all I know for sure. I haven’t seen spirits or auras or other realms. Just wild ass visions. I practice every night. It’s like being 12 and discovering masturbation. Its a neurological trick that pours red bull on your subconscious.

  5. I didn’t understand the dangers of awakening your third eye, but does it by any chance make you look crazy? Like someone talking to himself, those kinds of stuff? I’m still new at meditation, and I’d like to know all there is to know about the third eye before I choose to open it. I read that there are consequences. What can happen when you awake your third eye?
