How to activate the 3rd eye?


The pineal gland is a pea-sized gland shaped like a pine cone, located in the vertebrate brain near the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Also known as the third eye, it is a revered tool of seers and mystics and considered to be the organ of supreme universal connection. Its significance appears in every ancient culture throughout the world. For example, in Ayurvedic philosophy, the third eye is represented by the Ajna chakra and in Ancient Egypt, the symbol of the Eye of Horus mirrors the placement of the pineal gland in the profile of the human head. The third eye is connected to clarity, concentration, imagination and intuition. The most significant aspect of Shiva is that he opened his third eye. He did many other things – he danced, he meditated, he married twice. All that is fine, but it is only because he opened his third eye that we remember him even today. After thousands of years, we still bow down to him because there is no substitute for knowing. To know is to be free. And there is no way to know unless your perception is enhanced beyond its present limitations.
Shiva is significant because he perceived what most human beings failed to perceive. What is unseen for a large segment of humanity became a normal part of his vision. That is what the third eye means. People say when Shiva opened his third eye, fire came out of it. This fire indicates that within himself, he burnt everything that he thought mattered to him. Within himself, he became a kiln that burnt everything that can be burnt. And then, from every pore of his body, instead of sweat and blood, ash came out. This is to indicate that he burnt every shred of ignorance – everything that one believes as true. Once this was done, the opening of the third eye could not be denied to him.

The Two Ways

There are two ways of opening the third eye. One way is, the inside has become a total vacuum so the doorway gets sucked in and has to naturally open. The doorway becomes limp and falls inward because there is nothing. Shiva has burnt not only his thought, his emotion, his relationships and possessions – he has burnt his very being. There is a total vacuum. So the door fell inward and opened.
Another way of opening the third eye is you contain everything inside. You do not find any expression for your thought, emotion or anything else. You could not even utter a word. You will see, if you remain silent for four days, on the fifth day you will suddenly feel like singing. If you do not know how to sing, you will want to howl because you want to let go. But if you do not let anything go, so much pressure will build up that the door will get knocked open from inside. This is another way.  

The Middle Path

However, if you are diplomatic, if you believe in the middle path, that means you do not wish to go anywhere. People who believe in the middle path are determined not to get anywhere in their life. The middle path is just your comfort zone, neither this nor that. It means you are a full-time bull-shitter. It does not matter where you go, you do your own stuff – that is the middle path. The middle path is a way of not getting anywhere, and after some time thinking this does not go anywhere.  Let’s say you were walking on the street and you came across a big rock. There are only two ways to go around it. In one direction, a tiger is growling. In the other direction, a fire is burning. If you think the middle path is the best way and walk into the rock, it will only give you good exercise for a while. You do not go anywhere.  
So, either you become empty and the sheer power of vacuum will open it, or you build a pressure in you and it will burst open – these are the two ways. The first way is a better option because if you open the door by building pressure, it may open up today and shut itself tomorrow. Or, before enough pressure builds up, something else may freak in you and you may run away. It is a lot of torture not letting a single thought or emotion find expression, not uttering a single word, not finding expression to a single opinion or idea that arises in your mind. It can make you burst! But if you do hold everything intact, the third eye will open.

How to Activate Your Third Eye Using Meditation Techniques

The third eye is a spiritual concept that refers to a person being able to achieve perception beyond ordinary sight.
Also known as the ‘inner eye', it is the gateway to inner realms and states of higher consciousness, beyond the physical world.
The third eye is commonly associated with visions, clairvoyance, out-of-body-experiences (OBE), astral projection and the ability to observe chakras and auras.

Where is the Third Eye?

In Hinduism the third eye refers to the brow chakra, located around the middle of the forehead, slightly above the junction of the eyebrows.
In Theosophy the third eye is said to be connected to the pineal gland,  which maintains light sensitivity and is responsible for the production of DMT (dimethyltryptamine), a psychedelic drug which many spiritualists believe to be excreted in large quantities at the moments of birth and death.
It is said that through third eye meditation, the third eye is activated, DMT released and access to higher realms gained. 
The third eye is also known as the sixth chakra, and referred to as “clairvoyant sight”, a word taken from the French language, meaning “clear vision” . This is basically the ‘sixth sense', which gives a person the capability to access information beyond the five physical senses.

What Happens During Third Eye Meditation?

Third eye meditation opens up your clairvoyant sight. Don't worry if you've never done this before, because like eyes, everyone has a third eye; it just needs activating and training.
Opening the third eye allows a meditator to clear energy blocks and self-limitations and releases negative karma.
People often discover/access new information and explore higher levels of consciousness during this form of meditation, and as mentioned previously, this is also used as a pathway to astral projection and lucid dreaming.
Once you successfully activate the third eye, rays of light will stream in and you will begin to see vivid colors, pictures, auras and visions. With practice you will begin to see more clearly, opening up pathways to higher levels of consciousness and spirituality.
If you have clairvoyant tendencies they will begin to flourish outside of your your meditation. You may begin to perceive the chakras and aura energies of people, plants and animals, and going forward you may see other dimensional beings and objects.

Try this 21-Step Third Eye Meditation Technique

It is best to practice your third eye meditation after having recently woken up from a state of sleep; so best in the morning or after an afternoon nap. The reason for this is that the brain is already in a state conducive to meditation, i.e. very relaxed in the theta state, with heightened inner-awareness and intuition and low stress/anxiety levels.
It is also possible to enter third eye meditation as you are falling asleep, however, this takes some practice and it is best to start the other way around first.
The majority of astral travellers report vivid, long episodes within an hour of waking from sleep, and in the early morning in general.

Follow these 21 steps:

  1. Allocate at least 30-minutes for your meditation.
  2. Turn off your phone and do your best to eliminate all other distractions.
  3. Make sure you're wearing comfortable clothing.
  4. Sit in the lotus position to ensure your chakras are aligned. If you don't find sitting cross-legged comfortable then simply lie down.
  5. Begin by relaxing each muscle in your body, starting with your toes and working all the way up to your head.
  6. Visualise each muscle, bone and ligament relaxing.
  7. Now move to a breathing meditation, as described here.
  8. See the wave of calm energy come over your body. Feel its warmth as it rises up through your body.
  9. Slowing draw the energy to the centre of your head, in between your eyebrows.
  10. Don't hold onto any one though process or image. Don't try not to think, just let go of attachments and aversions as if nothing mattered.
  11. Feel yourself becoming lighter and lighter, as gravity falls away.
  12. Stay with your breath and visualise a white ball of light rotating 360 degrees at the centre of your mind.
  13. See this ball expanding and fully accept its presence. Invite to come into your ownership.
  14. As it expands let the light stream out through the centre of your forehead.
  15. Again, let go of thoughts; just let them rise and fall as they occur.
  16. Let the light in and remain open to seeing whatever is put before you be it pictures, colors or information.
  17. If you're seeking to connect with God (Mother Nature), or a spirit guide, this is the time to call out and connect. This can be done vocally (calmly and peacefully) or internally.
  18. Recite your calling like a mantra until you receive a sign of response. You'll know when it comes.
  19. Try not to be alarmed when it does; any shock or sudden movement may break the meditation.
  20. You may choose to ask your third eye for a message; for information or insight, or you may simply choose to just be and take what comes from this enlightening experience.
  21. The experience may appear as dream-like, but in time you will familairize yourself with the experiences and learn to cultivate and manifest higher knowledge into your physical existence.

I Can't See Anything – Why?

The level of clairvoyance a person has is dependent on the openness of their third eye, which is directly affected by energy blockages.
A fully open third eye will allow multiple light rays to stream in, often in strong golden and silver colors. Streams of white light enter the space as information is received and then interpreted in pictures, messages and higher consciousness in the crown chakra.
The more advanced the practitioner the more expansive the light rays become. However, because the third eye is connected to the first, second and third chakras, if there are channel blockages the functionality of the third eye is greatly restricted.
Blockages can be due to physical injury; muscular, bone and inflammation, and also due to mental energy blocks caused by fear, stress and anxiety.
The location of the blockage determines the difficulty of understanding what is seen during your meditation. It is therefore a good idea to use a chakra meditation to unblock energy channels before attempting to open the third eye through meditation.

My Third Eye Meditation Still isn't Working!

Third Eye Meditation is a skill that can take many years of practice to master, and most people rarely get past the stage of sitting down to meditate, let alone accessing their third eye; so if you've got that far you're more than a third of the way.
What most information regarding third eye meditation neglects to mention is that one should start off with basic meditation first. Cultivating a non-attached, present, centered, balanced state is essential to opening the third eye, and therefore it is best to start meditation using guided meditation or binaural beats.
Binaural beats recordings provide the easiest pathway to states of meditation and to the activation of the third eye. By using this proven natural science you can effortlessly achieve deep states of meditation, which will ultimately help you access your clairvoyance faster.
Try using either our Chakra Healing or Spiritual Awakening tracks. These meditations are designed to take you into deep meditative states where you'll experience higher states of spiritual awareness.
You might also like to try Astral Projection, which is specifically for astral travel, but part of that process is the opening of the third eye. It comes with a comprehensive guide on how to open the third eye and achieve astral travel to alternative dimensions.
