Signs Your Third Eye Is Opening

signs your third is opening

The third eye is a powerful tool that can help us to access our intuition and gain insight into our lives. It is said to be the gateway to higher consciousness and spiritual enlightenment. As we open our third eye, we can experience a range of physical, mental, and emotional changes that indicate that our spiritual journey is progressing. In this article I discuss signs your third eye is opening.

The concept of the third eye has been around for centuries, and it is believed to be an inner eye that can provide insight and clarity. Many people believe that opening the third eye can lead to greater spiritual awareness and understanding. Meditation is a great way to open the third eye, as it helps to quiet the mind and allow for deeper levels of consciousness. In this article, we will discuss how meditation and crystals can help open the third eye.

Here are some signs that your third eye is opening:

Increased Intuition

One of the most common signs of an opening third eye is an increase in intuitive abilities. You may find yourself having sudden flashes of insight or feeling more connected to the universe around you. You may also notice that your dreams become more vivid and meaningful as your intuition develops.

For me, I often see faces of people, in great detail, that I don't know when I'm meditating or waking up. These people come to me as spirits, and I have often seen a young child with blonde curly hair appearing lately. My intuition is that this will be my grandchild.

Heightened Sensitivity

As your third eye opens, you may become more sensitive to the energies around you. This could manifest as feeling overwhelmed in crowded places or being able to sense the emotions of those around you. You may also find yourself drawn to certain places or people for no apparent reason.

My sensitivity is enhanced when I am in nature, I feel I can communicate with the animals, plants and trees. Yet, when I go into crowds I feel very uneasy and I think it is because I'm picking up other people's energies.

Physical Symptoms

Opening your third eye can also cause physical symptoms such as headaches, tingling sensations, pressure in the forehead area, or dizziness. These symptoms are usually temporary and should pass after a few days or weeks as your body adjusts to its new level of awareness.

I feel this intense pressure on my forehead when I am meditating and connecting with my spirit guides. I also hear a whooshing sound and my whole body vibrates when I am having an out of body experience (OBE).

Spiritual Experiences

As your third eye opens, you may find yourself having spiritual experiences such as visions or out-of-body experiences. You may also start noticing synchronicities in your life or feel a strong connection with nature and the universe around you. All these experiences are signs that you are on the right path towards spiritual growth and enlightenment.

Crystals That Enhance Opening Your Third Eye

How Can Crystals Help Open the Third Eye?

Crystals are believed to have powerful healing properties that can help open up the third eye. They are thought to resonate with our energy fields and help us access higher states of consciousness. By using specific crystals in meditation or other spiritual practices, we can open up our third eye and access its power.

Which Crystals Are Best for Opening the Third Eye?

There are many different crystals that can be used to open up the third eye, but some of the most popular include:

  • Amethyst – This purple crystal is known for its calming properties and ability to promote spiritual growth. It helps clear away negative energy and open up your psychic abilities.

  • Fluorite – This green crystal helps clear away mental fog so you can access higher states of consciousness more easily. It also helps protect against negative energies so you can stay focused on your spiritual journey without distraction.

  • Lapis Lazuli – This blue stone helps bring clarity and focus while also stimulating your intuition. It helps you tap into your inner wisdom so you can make better decisions in life.

  • Lepidolite can assist in opening the third eye chakra. It is used for the higher good and dissipates negativity.

  • Moldavite is an extremely spiritual crystal that can help you connect with your guides. It is said to come from extraterrestrial origin from a giant meteorite hitting earth. It is a rare and beautiful stone, and more expensive than most.

Using crystals for opening up your third eye isn’t complicated, but there are a few steps you should follow for best results:

  • Cleanse Your Crystal – Before using any crystal, it’s important to cleanse it first by running it under cold water or placing it on a bed of salt overnight (or both). This will help remove any negative energy that may have attached itself to the crystal during its travels from mine to store shelf or from previous owners/users before you acquired it.

I place my crystals in either a singing bowl or in sunlight for a few hours to cleanse them
  • Meditate With The Crystal – Once your crystal has been cleansed, hold it in your hands while sitting in a comfortable position with your eyes closed (or even lying down). Focus on your breath as you visualise yourself surrounded by white light or other calming colours like blue or purple (depending on which colour resonates with you). As you breathe deeply with each inhale/exhale cycle, feel yourself becoming more relaxed until eventually reaching a meditative state where all thoughts have faded away except for one: “I am ready to open my third eye”.

Before I meditate on my third eye chakra I always ask for protection from the higher realms and command negative entities do not approach. I often use a smudge stick to cleanse the area or incense and/or candle.
  • Visualise Your Third Eye Opening – Once in this relaxed state, visualise yourself opening up your third eye by imagining a bright light emanating from between your eyebrows (or wherever else feels right). Feel this light expanding outward until eventually filling up the entire room with its luminous presence. The colour for the third eye chakra is Indigo or Purple. For in depth work with chakras I highly recommend visiting Belinda Womack who has three beautiful meditations you can download for free

I have no financial benefit by promoting Linda, I love her work and want to share it with you.
  • Connect With Your Intuition – After visualising this light expanding outward from within yourself, take some time just sitting quietly while allowing any messages or insights that come through during this time period without judgment or expectation.

As I mentioned before I usually see faces of people. I have also had a clear vision of my brother when he took his life many years ago and a clearly heard his voice tell me he was ok. Read that story here.
  • Ground Yourself Back Into Reality – After connecting with your intuition through meditation with your chosen crystal(s), gently bring yourself back into reality by slowly counting backwards from 10-1 while taking deep breaths in between each number..

How to Meditate for Opening the Third Eye

Meditation is a great way to open up the third eye because it helps quiet the mind and allows for deeper levels of consciousness. Here are some tips on how to meditate for opening up your third eye:

  • Find a comfortable position – Sitting upright in a chair or lying down on your back are both good positions for meditation. Make sure you are comfortable so you can relax your body and mind during your practice.

  • Focus on your breath – Close your eyes and focus on your breath as it moves in and out of your body. Allow yourself to become aware of each inhale and exhale without trying to control them in any way.

One of my favourite breathing techniques is breathe in for the count of four. Hold for the count of four. Breathe out for the count of four. Hold for the count of four. Repeat as often as you need to feel relaxed.
  • Visualise – Once you have established a steady breathing pattern, begin visualising energy flowing into your forehead area between your eyebrows (this is where your third eye resides). Imagine this energy opening up like a flower blooming or an expanding light radiating outward from within you. You may also want to visualise yourself receiving insights or wisdom from this energy source if that feels right for you.

  • Remain focused – As thoughts arise during meditation (which they will!), simply acknowledge them without judgement or attachment before returning back to focusing on your breath or visualisation exercise. This will help keep you focused on what you’re doing instead of getting distracted by other thoughts or feelings that come up during practice.

  • Don't judge yourself – if nothing comes to you, just enjoy the experience and keep practising on a regular basis.

I sometimes see beautiful colours, people or even objects.


Opening up our third eyes is an important part of spiritual development and personal growth - but it doesn’t have to be difficult! By using crystals and meditation as tools for unlocking our psychic abilities we can easily access higher states of consciousness without having to put too much effort into it! Be persistent and patient.

Love to all.
