Third Eye Activation — Are you awake?
TLDR: This is your guide to help you awaken or activate your third eye chakra. The third eye chakra is the 6th chakra. It resides in the middle of our forehead between our eyes. This chakra is an energy center that connects us to our higher selves, our intuition, our wisdom, & our inner knowing. The third eye can activate or become open my accident or purposefully. There are several methods to help open or balance your third eye, such as practices like meditation & visualization.
Sound the alarm! June is here. Its time to WAKE UP….
Because a new journey awaits us.
We are about to shift into higher states of awareness.
Are you ready for this? Are you ready to experience major transformation in your life?
I hope so, because the moment has arrived.
The time is now.
Wake up call: New month, New chakra
The month of June is inviting new & powerful energy into our realities. This month is taking us into a space of higher consciousness — into our third eye. And in this new space, we will begin to experience life like never before. We’ll start to see how things truly are. We will gain deeper clarity, insight, visions, and be able to tap into our intuition. We will become woke.
As we move through this new month—it can get intense. So remember to come back to your anchor, or whatever helps you to stay present & grounded. Because things will begin to shift for you, IF you allow it too.
This month is about surrender. It’s time to kill the old version of you, so that you can make room for the new energy that belongs to you. We are releasing what no longer serves us. Because in doing so…we make way for our third eye chakra to activate. And it’s through this activation, or awakening that we create space for our lives to change forever.
But what actually is this third eye chakra anyway? How do we open it & how do we keep it healthy?
Third Eye Chakra 101
To recap from earlier posts, there are seven known chakras, or energy centers that reside within our physical bodies. Each chakra represents a spiritual life lesson or challenge to help us gain a deeper understanding of our personal and spiritual power. This, in turn, helps us learn how to overcome obstacles, let go of emotional blockages, and walk the path towards spiritual consciousness.
The third eye (6th) chakra, or inner eye, is apart of the energy that is within our physical bodies. This particular chakra sits between our eyes and being physically connected to the brain, pituitary, and pineal glands, this is the mind chakra. It resonates with the energy of our psyche, as well as the conscious and unconscious part of ourselves.
Activating this chakra (which holds a feminine energy) helps us to tap into our intuition, or inner knowing, giving rise to the new versions of ourselves— the woke versions.
The intuitive third eye (chakra)
This is the chakra of intuition, wisdom and our sixth sense. It is also known as our ‘third eye’ and considered to be our spiritual center.
The mantra for the third eye is “I see.” It allows for clear thought, spiritual connection, and self-reflection. It is the highest chakra in the physical body, which allows for higher (visionary) perspective. The third eye also helps us to determine our reality and beliefs, based on what we choose to see in the world.
This chakra is what gives rise to our self-awareness, higher wisdom, visualization, clarity, discernment, imagination, and creative dreaming.
When balanced and in alignment, the third eye chakra helps us to get rid of typical black-and-white or “me versus them” thinking and invites in wider perspectives and interconnectedness.
When the energy of the third eye chakra is out of alignment or not flowing freely, it creates an imbalance within our physiological, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves.
Signs of a blocked third eye
Signs your third eye may be blocked can show up in many different ways.
For one, you might notice physical signs like tension in the brow area, constant headaches, eye strain, blurred vision, sinus issues, hearing problems, or dizziness.
Cognitive signs of an unbalanced third eye chakra may include dissociation, issues concentrating, frequent nightmares, sleep disturbances, mental fog, and confusion.
Common emotional signs are noticed when one is constantly experiencing feelings of self-doubt, worry, overthinking, close-mindedness, feeling lost, or relying on others for validation and permission.
Lastly, some spiritual signs which point back to the blocking of your third eye include a lack of confidence in your path or purpose, not able to tap into your intuition, being too involved in the physical world & all its drama, which blocks your ability to even experience any form of higher guidance and wisdom. Or you may find that you have a habit of escaping or dissociating, spending most of your time too busy daydreaming to focus on the present reality.
Balancing/Opening The Third Eye
Whether you’re looking to open up your third eye chakra for the first time or trying to create a sense of balance within this energy center again, there are several different methods or means to do so. Here are 4 powerful & practical ways you can implement right now:
1. Release Tension
One way to bring balance or to open your third eye is to consistently focus on releasing tension in the head, face, and neck, which can block the flow of energy to and from the third eye. Neck stretches, applying a warm compress to any tight areas, self massages, baths with aromatherapy, checking in on your body posture, changing your pillow to one that supports your neck, staying hydrated are just a few ways to help you do that.
Finding activities that use the mind & your focus can benefit you in opening the third eye. One such activity is through visualization. An example of what visualization can look like is to close your eyes and try imagining light flowing in and out of the center of the forehead. And then through using the power of your imagination, visualize this light cleansing the third eye of any stuck or negative energy.
Meditation, as I believe to be true, is probably the most powerful tool for bringing the third eye chakra into alignment. This can be as simple as choosing to sit in silence and stillness in order to connect deeply with the self and with your feelings. (This can lead to awareness and clarity, as well as teach us how to listen to inner guidance and intuition.) Or, follow a guided meditation designed specifically for the third eye chakra, or one that can ignite deep insight/clarity within you, like the one I share here
Being open-minded is also important for the third eye activation. The third eye has a connection to perception, wisdom, and guidance and having an open mind allows for that connection to shine through.
Becoming more open-minded is possible by actively & purposefully expanding your perspective through your day-to-day activities: whether it is trying a new food to eat, reading books by authors of different backgrounds, or listening to a new genre of music, diversity here is key here.
However way we choose to care for our third eye chakras, it is important to remember that only by pouring into our own cups will we be able to pour into those around us. It is until we learn who we truly innately are, and able to connect to our true selves, that we begin to shift into a life that serves us fully. By first seeking personal wisdom, clarity, self-awareness, and open-mindedness, we are better able to grow fully confident in our paths and purposes, making us even more powerful in bringing about the very thing we wish to see within ourselves & in the world.
