Meditation is the beginning point to expanding your perception into the spirit world. The ultimate goal for many is to tap into that inner wisdom, receiving a stronger guiding force in life. This is achieved by allowing the third eye, or the pineal gland, to open. According to ancient Vedic literature, the human body has seven chakras. Out of these 7, the most powerful and life-changing is the 6th chakra. The third eye, most commonly known as the Ajna or the 6th chakra of the human body, is directly related to the subconscious mind. It manifests as the pineal gland in our body. Located in the center of the brain, it has been believed for centuries that this is the gateway to receiving spiritual awareness.
The third eye chakra, with its outer positioning located at the center of the forehead, controls perception, intuitiveness, creativity, imagination, wisdom, and knowledge. It is believed that there are dimensions apart from the three that we can see and perceive. In order to discover the others, one needs to open third eye. To open the third eye one has to undergo a third eye awakening. Religious scriptures from around the world have laid down several rituals and habits that can lead to third eye awakening. Out of them, the most common and widely practiced is the third eye meditation.
The picture above is the third eye symbol.
It symbolizes the sacred “Om” as the most powerful incantation in order to open third eye. The two lotus petals on both sides, symbolize the union of psychic channels – the ida and the pingala, ultimately leading to enlightenment and spiritual actualization. Almost all religious and spiritual scriptures refer to the 3rd eye and how to open third eye.
Opening the 3rd eye is a life-changing event and third eye meditation is the way to achieve it. In this process, one has to seek proper guidance from a spiritual master and there are various techniques and ways of going about it. Common among them is the open third eye spell, or the mantra, as bestowed upon by the spiritual master who you are following. Needless to say, he/she has already activated their 3rd eye and is proficient in getting their student to accomplish the same. Thus one can go about their target of third eye awakening in a peaceful and solemn manner.
The following signs are often experienced when the third eye has
opened, or the third eye chakra is activated, so to speak:
Slight Pressure between the Eyebrows
Firstly, in the initial stages of the third eye awakening, there might be slight discomfort in terms of pressures and head reelings at the center of the forehead.
On a clearer note, a warm sensation or a feeling of being touched in this area is a sign that the 3rd eye has started to manifest. The sensation is experienced, especially when you are meditating or pondering about something in deep thought. It may also be a tingling sensation. They all point to the same thing, that your higher consciousness is engaging in the current process and is a good thing. The major reason behind the discomfort is because, since birth, the third eye chakra is dormant or scantily used. Due to being dormant for a long time, initial discomfort in opening and adjusting to the new dimensions is experienced. You would feel a similar pain in your eyes if you have been woken up after a coma spanning a long time.
Third Eye Awakening: Increased Intuition
Increased intuition is another sign.
Secondly, increased intuition is another sign of third eye opening.
As the third eye awakening symptoms reveal, different foresight can be realized. This feature is different in every individual and has to be accepted as our intuition is trying to get our attention. You will frequently experience moments of deja-vu. . As the things you see happening in front of your eyes in the physical world, you will feel that they are the things that you have already seen happening in your dreams. You may even have had visions of these events during your meditation or spiritual practice.
It has been witnessed in many cases that people with a third eye open have seen things that have happened in the past while looking at the spot in present. Do not fret, despite what people say; you are not going mad. You just need to differentiate as to which is the present and when are you navigating in the past.
This feeling could be one of fear, a premonition of the future, or knowing that a certain act is about to take place. It is not always 100% accurate, but take it and develop it as a gift. As time progresses, you will learn to accept all that is coming your way. You will become accustomed to not reacting to sudden events or external stimuli.
