How do I open my third eye?
We get this question a lot, especially from those of you who are just starting your spiritual journey. Christine and I (Lauren) both when through our own journeys of realizing our intuitive power and we use that gift daily to help others and ourselves through life’s decisions. Even if you have been practicing for a while, know that your intuition can expand and deepen, so it’s always good to spend some time nurturing this energy center.
Below you’ll find ways to work with your Third Eye through daily exercises and lifestyle changes.
We have to start here, as meditation is the most effective way to connect with your intuition and spiritual guidance. Your Third Eye is located just between your eyebrows. The next time you sit to meditate, focus your awareness on this spot and notice how it feels. It varies from person to person, but in general you may feel pressure, tingling or a pulsing sensation. This is how you know your Third Eye is activated. With your eyes closed, explore this feeling and see where it takes you. Watch your thoughts and visions for any messages your intuition has for you.
If you’re experiencing a lack of clarity with your third eye, try a few dietary shifts to detoxify your energy center. The pineal gland is thought to be biologically associated with the Third Eye Chakra, which many spiritual experts believe is best supported with raw foods from the Earth. Cleaning up your diet by adding natural foods in place of processed snacks and meals can benefit your health and intuition after a few weeks of consistency. Try it out and track your results! I also strongly encourage you to do your own research on the pineal gland and Third Eye as a part of your spiritual study.
3. ESSENTIAL OILS
Adding essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus and tea tree to your meditation, journaling, card reading or relaxation routines can help enhance your Third Eye connection. Use an oil diffuser, add a few drops to your bath or dilute with a carrier oil like almond, avocado or olive oil and dab a drop directly between your eyebrows. You can do this anytime you are intentionally seeking spiritual communication.
If you are sensitive to crystal energy, you can try adding amethyst, selenite, lapis lazuli or labradorite to your collection. There are plenty of other crystals that can aid in Third Eye enhancement, so do your research. I personally use amethyst or selenite anytime my Third Eye or Crown chakras are clogged with spiritual energy and causing me headaches. Lay down and place the crystals near or directly on your forehead as you relax your body to allow the energy to flow through you.
