Last Updated on

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 energy center 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 is being overly concerned or fearful about the phantasmagorical visions passing before your mind’s eye. These are common symptoms when the third eye is opening without having enough overall balance and support from the lower chakras.

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

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.

    This is dumb, an overactive eye is somthing you connect to it stops you’re life decause you do not se the world as others do. Its much live and much happiness. To stop an overactive eye you must dredge back into real life. Very difficult.

  • Anne

    you said to ground yourself while doing the exercises so the visions won’t ‘knock you off your feet’. Well I should be so lucky!  Been trying for decades to lucid dream, open my third eye…  nothing.  My pineal gland must be made of concrete 🙁 Guess its all the fluoride in the water and the prozac I used to be on.

  • 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.

    • Jess

      Yes i believe so too. But in my case it is giving me some issues. As well as random anxiety depending on where i am. In some cases i feel exhausted just being around some people. Have to constantly works on visualizing protecting shields around me.

      • Anonymous

        If all hope is lost and you’re completely desperate, I recommend seeing a psychiatrist and getting prescribed antipsychotics which will shut the pineal gland down.

      • Ingrid

        Jess honey, have you considered social exposure to be overwhelming at times?
        well, you probably just have social anxiety, it has nothing to do with your third eye. I advise that you go see a therapist to work out your social issues.
        Love- Ingrid

      Yit. Balance it by aligning all u chakras clear in balance together thru’ the sushuma connecting to ???? via the toot chakra with divine light coming in from above thru the crown. Inhale as that light absorbs in the pineal gland down to the ❤ and to yhe rest of the skabody. Pause breath and be aware of the light charging every strand of dna and cleansing each chakra from bottom up. Exhale as all blockages and toxinf are expelled into the ???? and transformed raising your vibration each breath. Do however breaths u feel

  • 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.

    • #Telekinesis

      YOu will really fail for your first try just like me. But always remember that practice makes perfecr

    • Lotus Immortal Eye

      Practice makes perfect. Perseverance in meditation is the only way to acheive you desires. Start small every day, it will increase and become a daily ritual stretching for longer periods as u spiritually mature. Then when ur stable with meditation proceed from the ground up.

    • Woke brother

      Hey Bothwell, fine name you’ve got there! If you wish to improve your telekinesis ability without fail i would recommend you see Dave ^Above, he has some recommendations that you go on a plant-based diet, he brings up some good points that i think you would find helpful.

  • 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.

    • Spirit

      ruby i know exactly what you are going through. I can help you, please contact me at rocky16998 at gmail dot com.

    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

  • 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.
