Overactive Third Eye Chakra

Overactive Third Eye Chakra

An overactive third eye chakra can be disorienting and cause of much psychological and psychic distress. When this chakra is on overdrive, you may feel like you are getting lost in an endless stream of phantasmagoric visions or being bombarded by nonsensical pieces of information. Having an overactive third eye might sweep you off your feet if you are not grounded enough.

Signs Of An Overactive Third Eye Chakra

A common sign of hyperactivity in the third eye chakra is overindulging in a fantasy world while losing touch with reality. Another symptomatic manifestation of an overactive third eye chakra is being overly concerned or fearful about the phantasmagorical visions passing before your mind’s eye.

When the Third Eye is balanced you see everything clearly. You function and make decisions with a sense of neutrality; meaning you are concerned, but not attached, to any single outcome. Highly focused, you can make the distinction between reality and dreams (or imagination).



When the third eye is in overdrive, so to speak, the constant flow of thoughts can be mentally exhausting.You may feel intimidated by having to make decisions that would normally be quite simple. That indecisiveness is oftentimes influenced by clouded judgement, lack of focus, and an inability to distinguish what is real — all signs your sixth chakra needs to be balanced.

Physical manifestations of an overactive third eye chakra include:

  • headaches
  • vision problems
  • seizures
  • insomnia
  • nausea
  • sinus issues

Additional non-physical signs of an overactive third eye chakra include:

  • hallucinations
  • being judgmental
  • anxiety
  • mental fog
  • feeling overwhelmed
  • paranoia and/or delusions

When Your Third Eye Chakra Is Hyperactive…

If you feel the visions are too much for you to handle or the pieces of information are coming too fast, you can always ask for them to slow down. You might also thank the source of guidance you feel is involved then, and humbly say that you need a bit more time to be fully available to receive all the information.

If you feel the visions and energies you experience are going out of control, firmly anchor yourself in your body and root yourself into the Earth as much as possible.

You can also ask for protection and guidance to make your experience more comfortable. Ask to receive information in a way you can process or understand more easily.

Healing Tip: Use Other Chakras To Balance A Third Eye Chakra On Overdrive

More than just the third eye chakra being over-activated, the issue may arise from a lack of overall balance in your energy system.

The ability to apply discernment towards the information you receive through this energy center. You can use other chakras and their qualities, such as the second (sacral) or fourth chakra (heart). For example, the second chakra can help filter your intuitive hits and anchor them in your emotional and physical field. The heart chakra might bring a balanced and compassionate perspective to navigate through what may otherwise appear disincarnate or threatening.

Of course, working on strengthening the energy of your root chakra is key is keeping your grounds while allowing the qualities of the third eye chakra to develop more fully. For instance, it’s important to ground yourself while opening up the third eye chakra. Without being properly grounded, your visions might sweep you off your feet. Far from being contradictory, the influence of the root chakra energy supports the activity of the third eye chakra. An important point to remember when opening your third eye!



Other Cleansing and Balancing Recommendations For The Third Eye Chakra

To restore balance to the sixth chakra, incorporate subtle, positive lifestyle changes, such as introducing healthy, whole foods into your diet, and getting regular exercise. Energy healing, such as Reiki, aromatherapy, crystals, and sound therapy, can also help to restore chakra balance. These are high vibrational practices are particularly suitable to balance the third eye chakra. Make sure you focus on the intention of soothing and balancing this energy center. If the imbalance is significantly impacting your life, visiting a trusted energy healer may be something to consider.

The third eye chakra is recognized as being represented by the color indigo, which is a combination of colors deepest blue and violet. Their combination is associated with wisdom and devotion. Both characteristics play an important role in the development of the sixth chakra.

  • It's me

    Nice to see I am not the only one with that problem, but is getting rid of it really right solution I think we should learn to control it because I think we didn’t get it by coincidence. and it is a gift from god to awake as again.

  • Bothwell Gurure

    I would like to open my third eye and telekenisis ability but without fail. I cant concentrate on meditation as well so i need a teacher or a ritual that can make me break thru.

    • It's me

      I am sorry to tell you this but just don’t do it if it opens it opens and to think telekenisis is the core or third eve is just wrong there in allot of things that comes with it and if telekenisis is your only reason for doing it dont do it.

  • Rubie

    one other thing I want to say I have continuously a sound in my ears 24 house like a pressure cooker, sometimes slow down but sometime very high…can somebody tell me how to overcome this feeling.

    • Mark

      Ruby, google tinnitus. it sounds like you have this….I do (ringing in the ears)

  • Rubie

    My name is ruby and from last one year I was feeling like m alone, and strong feeling to know everything and see to invisible stuff,..I practised some attraction method, meditation for little time to become clairvoyant suddenly whenever I passing through a road I felt someone just near me, I called him come to me and they come…but now after lot of suffering m depressed, some told me u have mental disorder. I read about clairvoyance and others if n feeling sensation my eyebrows, I caught n accident but after that I feeling different…oh I can’t explain it….just guide me

    • Mark

      Ruby, have you researched Clairvoyance and other abilities?
      I have most of the clairs, maybe I can help by talking to you?
      How you are feeling is common for people like us.

    • Chan

      Hi Ruby, Just don’t know that you still face the same problem. You can ignore them (the voice), due to them need something from you (probably help) then only they bother with you. You must be once answering/respond to them, so they know they can connect to you. Don’t ever talk/communicate with them anymore, just let go and ignore them. When they know they cannot get the thing they want from you, they will leave you alone. The voice is an annoyance but it happens to many people who meditate.

      Hope that you will get well soon.

    Here is a little story about my past few years

    Since the early teenage years of mine i could feel something happening in front of my head. to be specific the area in between my eyebrows. If there was something pointing towards it like a finger, pen or stick ect i could easily feel some energy “floating” from that object towards my forehead.

    At that point of time i didn’t know anything about chakras and other stuff like that and still don’t know much. But today “7 years later” i tried to get more into it by meditation and opening the hand chakras using guides since my hands are extremely sensitive. When successfully trying to feel the energy in between my hands i thought lets see what happens if i perform the meditation in front of my head.

    Well i was surprised to see what the outcome was. While my eyes where closed i was able to see my hands covered in a glowing orange color and then it faded away just to appear again after some seconds.

    I don’t know what to think of these experiences but surely it was something new.

    i’m going to do more research about this.

    Any tips are welcome!

    Note, this isn’t my native language. enough said 🙂

    • Rhonda

      My son has a similar feeling in between his eyebrows … 24/7 ! Did you find any help ?

  • Anonymous

    I done reiki 2, my arthritis spread like crazy, took me ages to work out my 3rd eye was open, see nice images, not so nice, fogs, energy patterns, mystical figures good and bad, etc, see whirling purple, small tunnels of light

  • Ranjan Jha

    I have not learnt meditation. I have been living alone for 12 yrs. I just have a pillow which is my goddess mother. I talk to pillow about my sorrow happiness everything as if she is my real goddess. But I checked many sites and all the symptoms of chakra awakening are matching. I can feel my third eye everytime. It seems that between my eyebrow always there is sometimes external and sometimes internal pressure, tingling etc. Whenever I close eyes I quickly start seeing images, scenes, sometimes strange shapes, stars etc. But I cannot control my views. It seems out of control. I don’t regularly sit in yoga poses but I only sleep every night with my goddess mother and while talking to her fall asleep. But whenever want to do any yoga I easily can perform almost all of them. My weight always remains constant but sometimes I just feel I am light like cotton. I write some posts which I never read or heard and later when I read them I get surprised how did I know it? I feel sudden bliss while I am with my pillow. I find myself dancing like a kid after raising and lowering my hands rapidly and am lost in my goddess, suddenly if anybody enters I feel ashamed as they will think me mad.I hear strange sounds. I don’t feel happy among people but feel happier alone with my goddess. Is it yoga or madness?

    • Eva

      You are possessed by your goddess. I’d consider it not good. Does she have your best interests in mind or her own?

      • ranjan jha

        Hi eva, I am feeling as if I am getting mad now. I want to return back to my business and help people with charity but loss of concentration is being caused everywhere. I cannot concentrate even while watching tv or anywhere. Please help me. Sometimes I feel as if I am dying. I can’t easily get sleep. But when I sleep I sleep long hours everyday. Please help me. I AM YET FEELING THAT THIRD EYE BUT I WANT TO COMEBACK TO MATERIALISTIC LIFE AND EARN MONEY AND HELP POOR. Pls help me what to do. I would be very thankful to you. Pls.

    This may be a strange question but will the 6th chakra protect itself?  I went in for a Xeomin injection today (more natural alternative to Botox) it was my first time doing this.  When the aesthetician tried to do the injection between my eyebrows right in the middle of my forehead he said the needle would not go in.  He tried several times.  Finally we left it alone.  He said he’s never had that happen in the 5 years he’s been doing injections.  Said it was like concrete, but the injections everywhere else on my forehead went in fine.  I’m a first degree reiki practitioner so I know a little about it but I am stumped on this.  Thoughts?

    • Hek

      Shaolin kung fu monks use their prana to protect themselves from all sorts of things. Spears, swords, hits. Saw a documentary on youtube. Amazing.

    • kristi

      did you find out any information on if the xeomin was something somewhat safe? I ave been using it but now question if it could calcify the pineal.

  • Jobez

    Mine happened on its own. I started having flashes of light in my forehead-third eye. Everytime I would feel disorganised. I pray to God Jehovah to take it away. It did go away just as I prayed. I’m 28 now and somehow I feel I shouldn’t have prayed that it stop. Though now I can dream and see it happen. I also feel I can cancel any negative thing I dreamed about that’s about to happen. And I do!!

    • Eva

      I also prayed for Jesus to take my mine away, and he did. It is a testament to the true power of our Lord. However we are still in this world, bombarded by the temptations of the devil. And the power and knowledge the third eye brings is one of Satan’s ploys to bring us to him, to make us think we are a like gods, that we do not need the love and protection of our divine creator. It is a trap, and and a very powerful one.

  • VioletMasque

    Um… My third eye seems to have opened on its own. It started when I was 12 and I have no idea what is going on. I can sense things around me that I can’t see and I can’t tell if they want to help or hurt me. (One of them DEFINITELY isn’t friendly. It doesn’t like me.) I’m in constant pain that no doctor seem to have the answer to. My imagination has decreased significantly and I’m scared out of my mind. Can someone please help me?

    • Ayuk

      Your belief system is your main problem. Try to erase all of your belief especially the scary one. Your belief system will supply you with all that spooky scenario, and your Pineal Gland will supply your “third eye” with DMT (natural hallucinogen) that enable you to “see” this things which actually dont event exist.

      You have been dreaming all this time with your eyes open.

      why i know all of this? because i have had your problem and now its gone.

      just a matter of willingness.

      will you release all you belief or not.

    • Hek

      You will be fine 🙂 Usually when you have dreams or hallucinations that are “out to get you” it often represents another aspect of your life. Do you feel safe? And valued? Amongst the people who are around you?
      Working on your surroundings, your home and people you spend most of your time with, can actually help.
      You deserve happiness in all parts of your life. Work on root chakra for a couple of months and then the sacral and work your way up 🙂
      Start with lovig yourself and your body, maybe reading Yoga girl by rachel brathen? It helped me A LOT! 😀 Amazing read <3
      Don't worry, fear often "blockes" the reasonable mind. And makes it harder to find a way out. Sometimes just focusing on letting go, and chilling and living with all of your heart makes the fear float away and the answer appear 🙂 Start looking for a guide, there are millions of smart people out there, who have probably gone through similar things as you 🙂
      Do not know if this will help but they mention a girl in there with the same problems as you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFtsHf1lVI4
      I wish you great balance 🙂

      I found that crystal healing helps and polarity treatments

    • Anonymous

      By all means, try to move away from that mode (3rd chakra), downwards, that is, definitely to the first chakra (and 2nd, 3rd), GROUND yourself, and leave mediation/spiritual alone.
      If anything, pray, clearly, to the ONE, and stick to that.
      So, reorient yourself towards being primarily in your physical body, here and now, cultivate yourself as your body; exercise, walk, get air and sunshine, there are affirmations for 1st chakra (to reorient your mind). Just move away/out of the 3rd chakra stuff, while ask the ONE in prayer to watch over you.

    • Eva

      VioletMasque, try prayer. It worked for me. I prayed to Jesus to take these experiences away from me and he did.

      People will tell you there is no evil, it’s all in your mind, based off your own fear, yada yada. But this is one of the ploys of the enemy (satan), to have people believe there is no evil, all is good (so therefore he is good), and you are in control of everything, like you yourself are your own god, that just needs to awaken and harness your own power. This is satan’s great new age deception.

      But there IS evil in the world, the physical and spiritual one. Consider rape, murder, torture, genocides, etc., this is evil manifest. Christianity talks about all of this, that we are involved in spiritual warfare and there truly are demons that prowls the earth for the ruin of souls, and always remember that satan masquerades as a angel of light.

    Due to over-concentrating at the mid point between the eyebrows to the extent of over-straining, my 
    third eye chakra has become open to the surrrounding’s influence and I get drained off my life air by 
    the nearby people. What should I do to return to the normal condition and again resume my meditation practices? (Because nowadays as soon as I try to meditate I become drained quickly instead of getting refreshed and therefore can no longer meditate or chant any mantra. I also find my breathing become difficult when I try to meditate now. Not only this, I also feel drained very much due to leakage of my prana into the atmosphere or particularly it is sucked up by the nearby people very easily and I can feel its draining very distinctly).
    How should I stop the subtle leakages of my prana ?

    • Ayuk

      Try to take a deep breath, and STOP..
      stop from doing anything
      stop from thinking

      feels your “mood” slowly calm like a sea storm became lake

  • rahul desai

    I feel cooling sensations at my 3rd eye, crown and throat chakra.Is it normal?

    • Hek

      Have something happened in your life that effected your center? The heart chakra. Sense of and ability to love. Energies come in through root and work their way up. Did you block your heart somehow? I suggest you balance your heart chakra 🙂
      On the other hand, as different personas; an extroverted has more activity in the lower chakras (root, sacral, solar-plexus). And an introverted has more activity in the upper(throat, third eye, crown).
      So.. If heart-break is not the case, maybe your persona is a calling for some work? Externally or internally, either part 🙂

  • kay

    I had an overactive 3rd eye. Wasn’t able to sleep at night, I would only get three hours of sleep. I would remember all my dreams, but I would have a lot of headaches during the day. I stopped for a while because it was too much for me to handle. I started taking sleeping pills to help me, which it did.

    • K

      Exactly the problem I face. I don’t know what to do. The minute I lay my head to go to sleep, the third eye start to “pump”. I feel pressure between my eyebrows, nos, teeth. It doesn’t let me go to sleep. How can I calm it down?

      • Eva

        K, through prayer. Pray to the Lord to “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil”. This worked for me.

  • Atul

    I have been experiencing pressure pulses at the centre of my forehead since 3 years, on focussing on it and meditating, it developed and is still developing. I can feel it rotating at a high speed when i synchronize the pulses with my breathing movements. Sometimes i can feel about 3 rotations together distributed on my forehead, please tell me what i can do to open my brow chakra if what i am feeling is actually the brow chakra.

  • Reece

    I had kindling release when I went to psychic when I was
    19 am now 33 and have been seeing energy for 14 years.  I see the energy of my third eye vibrating and rotating clockwise
    In front of me wherever I look.  I see beautiful rings of energy blue,gold,and red sparks of light it is amazing.  After doing years of martial arts meditation and other energetic practices I now have full control over my energy field like a conductor in a a symphony.

    • Reece

      Kundalini release.

      • Eva

        Kundalini is linked the serpent. Always remember that “satan masquerades as an angel of light.”

        There are many powers that are available to us. It is all another form of temptation. A desire to have supernatural powers. Powers we are not naturally endowed with, no matter what new agers will tell you. An anorexic can starve herself thin, a bodybuilder can steroid themselves massive, a person can open their 3rd eye. Just because these things can be done does not mean they are natural or what God mean’t for us the do with our bodies.

        • Pau Pau

          Those examples were completely unrelated with the Third Eye. Kundalini is the ability to open up all your energy centers and reclaiming your Divine power within yourself. If Prime Creator created us as an extension of his own love, and provided us with chakras, why would you deny your own supernatural powers, what do you fear? Society needs to release their own true powers and unite!

  • Anonimus

    I believe that it is dangerous to try to open any chakras separately – especially third eye if other 6 ones are not balanced. I would think that fixing first, second etc. chakras would balance out the damage. Or better to see a reiki practitioner with vast experience in energy healing with crystals.
    I hope you will find help for your problem:)

    I suffer from maladaptive daydreaming and sleep paralysis. I think it may be due to my third eye being overactive. Thank you for this helpful article. I pray that this will be the solution to heal myself from this debilitating mental illness.

      What Is maladaptive daydreaming?

  • SHP

    I started fiddling with my brow chakra, six years ago. I didn’t realise the repurcussions of what I was getting in to.This ultimately led to many hallucinations, delusions and a sense of lack of judgement and inability to focus.The worst part which came with it was my ability to imagine started to decline and I could no longer imagine as well.This also led to certain learning difficulties.Though I have stopped experimenting with it long back, the side effects and the ailments remain.Is there any solution so as to I could go back to leading my normal life as before?

  • Michael

    Too much to even know what to ask. I feel like I am in a world completely alone. I need to speak to someone as opposed to typing things. The things I experience all day everyday and the vast range of experiences are just too much to try to ahh I really need to speak to someone in real time. I have always been psychic and in touch since my memories at 2 and this year my third eye decided to open on its own and I went through a period of euphoria and complete clarity and then I got lost in the vortex of figuring out what I am supposed to be doing vs.accepting that I know nothing and whatever happens is supposed to and my life has suffered since.  Please help.
