Third Eye Chakra Healing

Third Eye Chakra Healing

An open and balanced Third Eye chakra enables you to see things as they truly are, but even the slightest imbalance can wreak havoc on your psychological, emotional, and physical health.

The 3rd Eye Chakra

Positioned at the forehead, the Ajna chakra (as it is known in Sanskrit) is the sixth of seven basic chakras, or energy centers, in the human body. Sometimes referred to as the “conscience,” this chakra governs the pineal gland and your vision, intuition, memory, and imagination.

Indigo is the most common chakra color associated with the Third Eye. Additionally, violet, silver and shades of darkest blue/purple may also be used.



Third Eye Imbalance

When the Third Eye chakra produces an excess of energy the mind can go into overdrive. Consider how you feel after one too many cups of coffee and you get the idea. An overactive Ajna chakra can make it difficult to concentrate and, in some cases, can induce hallucinations.

On the other end of the spectrum, an energy deficiency can also affect your ability to concentrate on, process, and remember information. An underactive Third Eye chakra can make you indecisive, procrastinate, or become fearful of the unknown. Extremely deficient Ajna chakra function can hinder your ability to focus, keep a cool head under pressure, or dream and recall your dreams.

Additional issues that can arise from a blocked or imbalanced Third Eye chakra include:

  • Insomnia
  • High blood pressure
  • Sciatica
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines


How to Activate Your Third Eye Chakra

Chakra meditation is an integral part of opening the Ajna chakra.

There are numerous online guides about how to activate your Third Eye Chakra using chakra healing meditation. Regardless of the method you choose, remember the key elements to successful chakra healing meditation and chakra awakening include being relaxed, visualization, and focus.

The idea behind awakening the Third Eye, or brow, chakra is to see things more clearly (within and without the physical realm) and to awaken your intuition. Keep in mind, the Ajna chakra works in partnership with the crown chakra to complete the chakra “circuit.” And when the Ajna chakra is awakened and working in tandum with the crown chakra a new level of awareness can be accomplished.

    Major thanks for the article.Really thank you! Cool. Caples

    yeah. it can be scary. it can be beautiful. sure there are higher energy beings out there. not all of them are “good”, not all of them are “bad”. a lot probably don’t know what they are by how their state defines good and bad. there are ones that are just being themselves but are that state of being’s “type A personality”. any special ability gained will come on it’s own because it was part of you all along. everyone is different. the crash at waking up is the sound from returning to your body. if it gets to be too much, try skipping a night of sleep. your mind will choose to get the rest it needs. consciously, and calmly, choose saying “i don’t want to leave my body tonight. I want to rest”. not everyone perceives information at the higher frequencies the same. at first your imagination can create a synesthesia about the information that may not be true. you have to practice relating things you are familiar with. it’s as simple as ‘if you see an apple, remember what it smells and tastes like’. some things you may start to realize will be scary because of what they mean about you and your actions but you will see other things instead that scare you as much or in the same way because you’re only perceiving with your “intuition” or understanding. think. be you. enjoy the small “miracles” no matter what your belief about who or what put them there. be curious. don’t be afraid to question everything you know. if it was right, it will hold up time after time. if it wasn’t, now you know. never forget though that ignorance is bliss. the more you know, the more you know just how much you don’t know. it is lonely to understand what it is to hold yourself accountable. be patient. seeking power for power’s sake is irresponsible. and to have it just to have it is to never have the right to wield it. in many people the capacity to believe is still being lost almost before it’s gained. that is not to say believe without question, just to believe fully in the answers you find to ask deeper questions of.
    everyone is getting lost looking at the end result they want. slow down. watch. listen. think. play with playful ideas. you’ll get there if you let yourself.

    Be careful of all these websites and “experts” talking about opening the third eye and how it is a wholesome, natural, positive experience, and if you experience any negativity that is just your own demons coming up… Be very careful of these people because I feel they themselves are acting as Satan’s messengers.

    Ask anyone who has had REAL experiences with the 3rd eye and you will hear about crazy, bizarre, fear-intense, spiritual danger. I know because I have been there. Ask these “experts” on the internet, and the will dismiss your comments, and tell you to take it easy when you’re opening it, relax more, think positive thoughts, etc.

    I’m a relatively sane and logical person and I’ll tell you this 3rd eye is the gateway to the spiritual(which I never really believed existed), and the devil wants you to open it so that he can have direct spiritual access to you. For this, he promises cool experiences and cool powers.

    Read about the 7 seals in the Bible and see if you connect anything to the chakras. God sealed us from these things and the devil wants us to break open these seals. Once you are open to the spiritual the devil has direct access to you, and it will require all your strength the powers of Jesus and St. Micheal to protect you and bring you out of that world.

    If you’re reading this thinking I sound crazy, just consider how crazy it sounds anyways to be thinking your going to see out of a 3rd eye in your forehead. It is all true my friends, and always remember the Bible says satan masquerades as an angel of light.

      Omg Ev . U r so righ .  A friend of mines warned me when I told him of my interest in the occult but I was too curious.  I still struggle with hallucination or whatever they ar .  I feel spirits waking me up during the night and having the craziest dreams.  I couldn’t leave the house for so long because I found myself in another world or dimention.  Psychologist couldn’t tell me what was wrong with me until I sought the help of a priest who knew right away I had experimented with transcendental meditation.  He had to exorcise me. I am still recovering and cannot function very well as I perceive things that are too frightenin .  The headaches won’t leave .

    It sounds really interesting, confusing and a little scary at the same time. I remember when I was little I use to see loads of shapes, when dark and purple colours and I could in a way feel the shapes in my hands, it was really strange and I wonder if it’s connected to this.

    Look two things all of you who describe evil things happening don’t even know the half of it. I’ve been fighting this sensation for a very long time you just need to be strong and keep the eye open with positive vibes. Trust me it gets better the prophetic dreams become reality and sometimes they are BAD but that’s just one side of foresight with time they get better just stay strong.

  • dean hughes

    I have lots of panic attacks lately, I have fatigue and I sometimes get minor headaches, I may have a blocked third eye but I cant seem to open it.

    • dean hughes

      I was also cut badly were my third eye is, there’s a scar and its fairly noticeable, either its already open or I broke it, I cut my head open were my third eye is on a old fashioned heater, so maybe that’s the cause, and I don’t really feel most emotions any more, please help.

    • Dawn

      If your still having issues opening your 3rd eye sit in a quite room, stare a a wall or close your eyes and in your head chant about the blockages and negative energy relising. Chanting about blockages and negiaive energy. Relising is the best way to clear those issues. After clearing the energy and blockages chant about cleansing the space of which your working on.

      Panic attacks may mean an overactive third eye depending on who you are… I have had the same problem. I have been exhausted, have headaches, and panic attacks. It seems to be paired with clouded thoughts and scary visions, crashing noises in my ear when I first wake up sometimes. I feel like I’m floating a lot, especially when I’m thinking… Like especially when I’m lost in thought. I feel like I can’t get out of bed and stop thinking and imagining, even to eat sometimes. Sleep during the night is practically torture, because it’s like a radio in my head. I have Lot’s of dreams that seem to happen the next day, but it’s been getting harder to get a clear message from anything anymore. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?

      • Ilirijana

        And don’t get me wrong, I’ve heard both the enlightenment side of it, and the scary side of it. Frankly? I’ve experienced parts of both sides. I have never seen the devil, or demons in my visions… They are scary for different reasons. Then again, there are no amazing super powers that cone with it. I just want a non biased answer. No ‘the devil will eat you, run away.’ Or ‘just calm down, you’ll be fine.’ I just want to know how to break this horrendous cycle. It’s hard to accomplish reiki and yoga, or even eat right, when your head is constantly distracting you. When I do remember to eat, or do other things? I’m not usually concerned about whether they are plums or purple grapes. I’m just hungry. It’s miserable, but I remember a time when it felt more balanced. I can’t draw back to it, because I can’t think straight. I know it’s possible to have a balanced and open third eye, but I do not. I’m on my last straw, and I’m really needing some good advice.

    Do NOT open your third eye. It is hell. There is a reason it is closed. I am not superstitious or new age or religious – but had some accupuncture which seems to have activated it. I started seeing a continuous purple dot and images of an eye. I didn’t think anything of it but when I researched it I found all this info on the eye and how it is a portal to other dimensions etc, and all stuff that I had begun to see and experience. That crazy stuff is true.

    I have always been a seeker, but most of my “seeking” has brought to feelings of love and universal connectedness. This “seeking” brought me to feelings of bizarreness and danger. Then I considered, in all this openminded and seeking – what makes one think they will always find spiritual love and safety? What if the seeking finally brings you face to face with the devil? I have never believed in the devil or demons – but I have always had a huge perceptiveness and intuition about life and people. Now that I have had a glimpse of this third eye, let me tell you, I feel it is a gateway to ALL things spiritual – NOT just the good. This is letting yourself be open to insanity.

  • karen.nivens@att.net

    I have had frightening accurate prophetic dreams and just “knowing” things I have no way of knowing so I probably have deliberately closed my third eye from fear.  I have insomnia, high blood pressure, anxiety, etc.  What do I do?

    • J.garciadon@yahoo.com

      Just maintain peace thoroughly is the best advice , as one that used to be suffering from depression and anxiety just literally clearing your mind of the bad and keeping peaceful thoughts constantly flowing should avoid you from negativity. I hope this helps man -james

  • DementedLycan

    In order to feel balanced, I must open my Third Eye Chakra i see, thank you for the article! I really need that information about the stones and oils, meditation alone has yet to soothe me. I’ll try moonstone and clary sage.

    • Gemini

      You’re stressed.
      You need to relax and think calmly. Do not force it to activate immediately, just let it slowly activate.

  • ashlynn

    I’m not really getting this but it seems very interesting.

  • lisa.milmine@hotmail.com
