You cannot dispute the fact that the Earth is waking up from this man-made illusion in which we live, and many more human beings are finally coming into contact with their true nature, otherwise known as self-realization.
However, the spiritual movement has a long way to go before it stabilizes, there are still so many beings who need to mature and integrate the basic understanding of spiritual concepts.
It’s easy to get carried away by the spiritual wisdom that goes around in the public domain, one of the most common ideas that catch the eye of researchers and those who would like to change their lives is the idea that by opening their third eye, they will live life in a new and exciting way that puts behind all the negative and problematic experiences. But no.
I’ve seen it many times over the past few years, questions, answers, content, and even paid promotions, on the theme of “opening your third eye”, it puzzles me when I see people who are willing to pay to have their third eye chakra “opened” by a mysterious guru, who in reality only wants to open your wallet and raise a few dollars for himself.
The third eye opens naturally, but the process is gradual and you can’t expect your third eye to bloom after a few meditations. The first step to lighting the flame in this chakra is to sit down and measure the importance of spirituality in your life.
Here are a few thought-provoking questions:
- How does meditation affect my life? Did I notice a difference?
- How do I define spirituality and how does spirituality define me?
- What’s more important: loving myself or loving temporary experiences?
- How do I feel about the third eye, what is my motivation to make it start to open?
- What is my understanding of the third eye, how will this affect my life?
You have to be honest with yourself before you can delve into the deeper exploration of spirituality and discover all that it has to offer.
Answer the questions above honestly and see how you feel about them, what kinds of emotions trigger them, and see for yourself if you want to work harder to improve the quality of your life by practicing meditation and self-love.
Opening the third eye:
Our third eye is part of our energetic body, it has been with us since the very birth of our physical body, and it has always been activated and spinning. I highly recommend considering childhood experiences around the age of 3 to 5 (or as far as you can remember) and thinking about things like trust, truth, will, and confidence.
As children, before our mind goes into conditioning, we are ultra-sensitive and fully aligned with our spiritual selves, but as children, we don’t see it that way, we are just happy to be alive, happy to discover all that life has to offer.
It is very common for modern humans to reach early adulthood with severe depression, anxiety, and fear of life, themselves, and the future. The period of 6 to 20 years is so intense and overwhelming that we completely lose ourselves in the illusion of materialism and selfishness.
How does that have to do with the opening of the third eye?
Well, it’s pretty simple actually. When we start a spiritual practice, such as meditation, and invest our faith and trust in it, it finally begins to manifest in our reality, and that reality is not that much different from our childhood. The third eye is a direct link with our intuition and our knowledge.
How do intuition and knowledge manifest in our reality?
We become more confident because we have a sense of knowing and understanding the path of our lives, and there is nothing more satisfying than knowing how to do things, even in difficult times. We start to see things more clearly, which allows the truth to manifest in our hearts and mind, and all of a sudden, the selfish illusion of everyday life no longer bothers us. All these abilities that we had as children are starting to come back to us in our adult life, and that has been a lot of experience!
I am sorry to disappoint you if you thought that the opening of your third eye will manifest dragons, fairies and unicorns, it is certainly very possible that you experience vivid visions and sudden lightning of this nature, but that will not happen all the time, and it is naive to think that it would. Your opening of the third eye will also not save you from the hardships of life, nor will it give you a special gold ticket to the secret country of the rainbows.
Third eye intuition:
I want to emphasize the fact that the opening of the third eye chakra has a very big impact on your intuition, this newly found intuition takes many forms and forms, but it will happen so strongly that you will not be able to miss it.
There are times when several months go by without any particular ideas or experiences, but suddenly one day you could look back and realize how good life can be, and it moves you forward! Life is not meant to be a strictly linear path of good experiences, or of good fortune, or a path that offers no challenges.
Your brow chakra is a wonderful tool that, when opened and amplified with meditation, can bring ideas and understandings that will gently guide and inspire you in the direction of your highest growth and evolution.
I hope the information, ideas, and experiences above will clear up some of the misconceptions about this magnificent chakra, and I will be happy to answer any additional questions if you have them.
Now that we have eliminated that, what about some meditations that we can do daily to stimulate the third eye and show it that we are interested in knowing more about it? The following meditations are also a great practice to help you increase your energy vibrational frequencies.
Meditation for stimulating the third eye:
Whichever meditation approach you take, you can start your meditation with one of the traditional meditation techniques or you can use your own favorite meditation technique.
The following method to stimulate your third eye is so simple that the only three things you need are willpower, trust, and discipline.
- Use your favorite meditation technique to relax and let go.
- Continue to breathe, relax until you feel that you are fully in meditation.
- Start to visualize a candle in front of you.
- Stay focused on the candle and don’t let it go.
- The goal is to stay focused on the candle, no matter what.
You will naturally see the candle in the area of your third eye, and let me tell you, it seems a hundred times easier than it actually is. I know that, and I know how you might start to feel as soon as you start this process.
Your ego will have a hard time accepting the fact that you are trying to teach yourself discipline and focus, and will continue to throw all kinds of distractions in your own way, just to distract you from the image of the candle you are trying to hold. you in front of you.
You might think that you are not imagining the right candle, or that it is too far or too close, but all you have to do is just keep this focus on and it will finally manifest. You may also sometimes feel or know that you are doing it right, and this will give you a good starting point in future meditations.
It doesn’t have to be a candle, although a candle seems to be very simple and in fact very stimulating, it could be a specific color you like, or it could be something else you like. There is no written rule that it must be a candle. Don’t let these things touch you.
Symptoms of the third eye:
The last thing I wanted to mention in this post is the symptoms of the third eye and how to recognize that the third eye is opening, but thinking about it and thinking back to my own personal experiences, information and ideas in this post should already be enough to determine if your third eye influences your intuitive life experience.
After two years of “intense” meditation, there came a day when suddenly my third eye was buzzing, it is certainly a beautiful experience and it can greatly elevate your spiritual understanding, it does not last too long, the longest has been a month or two perhaps, which I recognize as spiritual growth and further integration of the Higher Self.
