Last Updated onThe third eye is known as the pineal gland. It is the Brow chakra that is present just above the center of the eyebrows.
It is a unique part of the body that holds great powers. The opening of the third eye creates many changes in your life. Its complete opening connects you to almost everything present in the universe.
Third Eye Definition/Meaning
The Third Eye is where we transcend the duality of being.
Our innate sense of “I” is separate from the rest of the universe, resulting from ego thinking. In truth, we are all at one with the universe.
Our sense of oneness comes from the activation of the Third Eye, which encompasses our higher senses. These are the spiritual senses that mirror the physical ones but exist at a higher vibration.
This is the chakra most associated with expanding perceptions of the nature of reality.
While it remains closed, we remain closed to the truth of the universe around us. As we open our Third Eye, we can begin to see what the ego hides from us.
The Third Eye Opening/Awakening Symptoms:
The third eye opening has its own signs, and the symptoms are easy to see. Here is a list of the most prominent third eye opening symptoms:
- A dull feeling of pressure between both eyebrows.
- Increased intuition.

Dangers Opening Your Third Eye:
The third eye is a very sensitive part of the body. It lets you see the unseen. Although the closed third eye places many negative impacts on the body, the forceful opening of the third eye comes with many risks.
You can open the third eye when you are in a low vibrational state, or without even balancing your other chakras.
When you are in a low vibrational state, opening the third eye is considered dangerous, since it allows you to see the unseen, maintaining the balance between what is real and what’s not will become a dilemma. You will inevitably fall into delusions.
Some have fallen victim to seeing beings from other dimensions. You see, we share our world with fourth-dimensional beings that we can’t see with our eyes. However, opening the third eye lets you see them and sense them too.
These beings around you aren’t always pleasant. That’s why you might hear someone say, ”they have opened their third eye and are seeing scary beings”.
Being in a high vibration state allows you to navigate the unseen without much hindrance, and other beings can’t invade your vibrational state without your permission.
Nightmares After Opening The Third Eye
Many people claim to have nightmares after opening the third eye. It is not unusual because dreams are part of the mind, and what you see with your third eye turns into dreams.
People often say they see demons. These nightmares don’t let them sleep properly at night.
The above situation is one of the dangers of opening the third eye before the time is right.
So what can you do?
To avoid any of the negative experiences associated with the third eye awakening, experts recommend that you find a spiritual guide.
Also, ground yourself before delusions take over your life. Don’t rush into opening your third eye, be slow and steady, and go smoothly with the flow.
Otherwise, all the advantages of opening your third eye will turn into an unforgettable nightmare.
That is why the third eye awakening is called a “process” rather than an “event.” You don’t just open it and move on with your life. You begin a journey of preparation and move steadily along the path towards opening it.
If you go too quickly, it will be like emerging from a dark room into a brightly lit one. Your eyes have adjusted to the darkness, so when you emerge, it does not help you see – instead, it blinds you.
And what do you do when the light is too bright? You shut your eyes. Do not allow this to happen with your Third Eye, or all the work you have put in will be undone in an instant.
That’s why it is so important to have a spiritual guide. A guide knows this process and can help you to take it at the right pace.
They will protect you from your own eagerness and bring you into the light gradually. This is like allowing your eyes to adjust by opening the door a crack and letting a small amount of light in before you open the door completely.
A guide will also enhance the experience for you and help you to make the most of it.
There are parts of the journey that may not occur to you that they require extra thought and contemplation. But a guide, knowing the journey so well as they have guided others (and themselves) through it, will show you where your attention should lie.
Attempting to travel this world alone is needless. It is an example of ego thought. It does not take away from your experience to share it with someone else. It only enhances it.
How To Open Your Third Eye The Right Way
The first thing you should do is to set your intent.
Decide that your goal for this cycle in your life is to open your Third Eye. Then, take deliberate action to see that happen.
What actions should you take? Everybody’s journey is unique, but the same processes must occur.
It helps to start simple. Start keeping a dream journal and noting down any interesting thoughts and ideas you have about them.
Dreams are an excellent window into the unconscious mind, and it is the unconscious parts of your mind that need to become conscious for awakening to occur.
Meditation is a widely used tool in all chakra healing – and for a good reason.
It is time for you to shift your meditation focus towards your Third Eye and spiritual perception. Start gently and ramp up as you make progress.
As you master this, you can start to combine it with holotropic breathwork.
Breathing exercises help connect the various systems of your body and blend the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. Breaking down the barriers between these aspects is essential for the sixth chakra.
Along the same lines, yoga can be an excellent step on this path. “Normal” yoga is effective, particularly child’s pose, which has you ground your brow with the Earth.
Kundalini yoga is very effective, especially those techniques which focus on the pineal gland.
Once you have settled into a good pattern with the above, start to adjust your diet.
Do not do this too quickly! Wholesale changes in your diet in a short period can upset your system more than it helps, so make changes gradually.
A balanced, nutritious diet is required for activation. Fruits, vegetables, and fresh greens contain most of the nutrients you need.
Many people say that they have had the most success with vegan diets, possibly because the body does not need to work as hard to gain nutrients from it.
Allow yourself to settle into this new way of living – it will only harm you to move on before you are ready.
You can start to step things up when you feel the time is right.
The natural way of doing this is with healing crystals and essential oils. You can supercharge your meditation and yogic practice by elevating them with crystals and essential oils aimed at your Third Eye.
Amethyst or lapis lazuli are excellent crystals, though anything in the purple family will work well.
The best essential oils for this purpose are lavender, white sage, and pine. Pick the one that suits your senses the best.
Lastly, if you feel that you aren’t making progress at any point in this process, you might benefit from a guide.
Many people offer support and guidance on this journey, and you would benefit from their wisdom and personalized advice based on your unique aura state and challenges.
They can also protect you from your own eagerness. We are all in danger of that, sometimes.
