Can you imagine what your life would be like if you could respond confidently to every situation and circumstance?
Our intuition is that sixth sense that tells us how to proceed. This internal compass helps us make decisions based on our spiritual well-being and not on external conditioning.
Well, some people claim that you don’t have to travel long distances to find your sixth sense. It’s right there between your eyes.
This chakra is associated with our perception, awareness, and intuition. If you learn how to activate it, you’ll be able to contact your higher self and deepen your spiritual connection.
The third eye chakra is also linked to the pineal gland, considered by the mystics to be the organ of supreme universal connection, making this chakra a window to the spiritual world.
The third chakra and its infinite possibilities
Opening the third chakra will get you closer to your intuition and psychic abilities. Once you develop it, the illusion of separation between your soul and your ego melts away, enhancing your intuition and decision-making authority.
If your third chakra is blocked, you might experience confusion, frustration, lack of purpose, and a sense of being lost.
You might become a cynical and pessimistic individual with no passion and hope for your future whatsoever.
But there is a solution. There is a way to open and develop your third eye chakra, strengthening your intuition and giving you the mental clarity to reach a higher state of consciousness and understand your life purpose.
How to open your third eye chakra?
The first step towards opening your third eye is to stimulate this chakra with an activation practice.
You can start by honoring your innate intuitive abilities and connection to nature, even if you don’t fully understand it yet.
Be thankful for your spiritual gifts and ask your higher self for more guidance. This will awaken your intuition, and the whole opening process will start to unfold.
Detoxify your third eye
Your diet plays an important role during the awakening process. Some foods can help you clean this chakra and strengthen your connection with its power.
So, make sure to include the following supplements in your diet:
Coconut oil, vitamin D3, ginseng, garlic, lemon, honey, hemp seeds, raw cacao, goji berries, watermelon, star anise.
These superfoods aid in purging the pineal gland and restore your spiritual awareness.
Use essential oils
You can also use essential oils to heal and open the pineal gland. Some of them facilitate the strengthening of your intuition and promote higher states of consciousness.
You can apply jasmine, lemon, or sandalwood for this purpose.
Make sure to combine them with a carrier oil of your choice before applying them directly to your skin since essential oils come in very strong concentrations.
Afterward, you can place the essential oil directly on your third eye chakra, that is, right between your eyebrows.
You can chant an “om” mantra while you apply the oil to maximize the effect and boost the connection with your higher self.
You can activate the pineal gland with the sunlight and its powerful forces. Sungazing is a form of meditation that consists of gently gazing at the sun during the first few minutes of sunrise or the last ones of sunset.
Practicing this form of meditation daily will boost your third eye, improve your clarity, and enhance your spiritual connection.
Visualizations are powerful practices that help you engage in a deeper state of meditation. The intention you focus on while meditating will activate your third eye and the connection with your spirit.
Sit in a quiet place, take a few deep breaths, and visualize the decalcification of your pineal gland. Visualize your third eye directly linked to the spiritual source through a bright and unbreakable wire.
Practice this meditation daily, and you’ll soon start making decisions based on your intuition instead of your insecurities.
Chanting mantras send special vibrations that also stimulate your pineal gland and, hence, your third eye chakra.
Spending a few minutes a day meditating and chanting mantras will cultivate a sense of gratitude and appreciation towards your life and unique gifts. Such feelings boost your spiritual awareness.
Crystals are known to have powerful healing energies that can help you open your third eye.
You can use purple, indigo, or violet gemstones like amethyst, purple sapphire, sodalite, and rhodonite, while you meditate to align, balanced, and nurture your third eye chakra.
Just place the crystal or gemstone on your forehead during your meditations and feel how its healing powers help you restore your spiritual connection.
How can you tell if your third eye is open?
There’s not an estimated time that can tell you how long it’ll take to open your third eye.
However, you’ll notice for sure when you’ll begin to receive special guidance from your spiritual masters through strange coincidences and powerful hunches.
Now, you’ll need to gather the courage and follow through on what your intuition is offering. By doing so, you’ll tune into your highest self, and your third eye power will only grow.
