The third eye – we all have one – and once it’s open, you will never experience the world in the same way again.
Opening your third eye will unlock insights and guidance you never knew you had access to. Here is everything you need to know.
What is the Third Eye
Your third eye, third eye chakra, or ajna, is the sixth chakra in your body. It’s located in the center of your forehead, at the midpoint between your eyebrows.
Your third eye chakra is connected to clarity, intuition, wisdom, and mindfulness. But beyond this, the third eye is also the door to clairvoyance, which is why it is commonly associated with the concept of having a “sixth sense”.
Since the third eye is the highest chakra in the body it is directly connected with higher perspective and self-awareness. Opening your third eye can completely change your outlook on life.
The Power of the Third Eye
While opening your third eye can lead to new spiritual insights, a closed third eye can also exert negative energy that you may not even be aware of. Let’s explore both:
The Effects of a Closed Third Eye
When your third eye is closed you may notice you have a persistent negative outlook, both mentally and emotionally. It’s common to experience things like self-doubt, pessimism, confusion, and indecisiveness about what path you should be following. You’re hesitant to make decisions, and initiating any significant change in your life may seem impossible.
A closed third eye chakra also has negative physical impacts on your body, many of which you might not be consciously aware of. Your eyebrows and forehead are likely tense and you may feel strain on your eyes. These often lead to headaches, dizziness, or blurred vision. You might even be experiencing unsettling dreams and nightmares that don’t allow you to sleep peacefully.
The Effects of an Opened Third Eye
When your third eye is open, you’ll find that you’re much more at peace with yourself and your world. There is an uncountable number of benefits, including having a more objective perspective on all the situations you face. You’ll find that you’re less likely to jump to conclusions or react very poorly to bad news or stressful situations. You’re more able to see the bigger picture and react with a steady hand and mind.
You’ll find yourself feeling more motivated and confident in your purpose. With a higher level of mental clarity you’re able to concentrate more and express yourself with greater ease and effectiveness. And all of these positive behaviors will attract others to you as well, as your positive energy is noticeable and alluring.

How to Open Your Third Eye
It’s important to keep in mind that opening your third eye isn’t something that happens from one moment to the next. It takes more than one session of meditation to make it happen. And once you have opened your third eye, that certainly doesn’t mean that it can’t be closed again.
Opening and keeping your third eye open is a way of life— it takes constant awareness and effort. But everyone has to start somewhere and these steps are a great launch point:
1. Find a quiet, comfortable place where you can sit by yourself.
For many people, this means sitting cross-legged on the floor in an empty room. Wherever you choose to sit, you should try to maintain proper posture (while still being comfortable and not straining your muscles). This supports good oxygen flow throughout your body. While I prefer silence, you might prefer soft, calming music, or nature sounds.
2. Close your eyes and focus on emptying your mind.
The goal here is to silence as many thoughts as you can from your mind– both good and bad. We’re trying to establish an objective, neutral state of mind that is free from emotion. Since it’s actually quite hard to think about nothing, it helps to close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
3. Meditate for at least 15 minutes.
While it’s difficult to get into this calm and detached mindset, it gets easier the longer and more frequently you practice it. Once you become really good at establishing this state of mind, it becomes easier to trigger it when you need it. Opening your third eye is all about achieving clarity, objectivity, and mindfulness.
4. Use crystals, sunlight, or moonlight.
If you’re having a hard time achieving this calmness, the use of crystals, sunlight, or moonlight may be able to give you that unseen spiritual boost you need.
5. Be sure to sleep well.
Not only is proper rest important for your body’s physical wellbeing, but for your emotional state too. Giving your mind the time it needs to cross over into the dream realm is an important part of achieving clarity and enhanced vision. An open third eye allows spirits to guide and communicate with you, and many times they do so through your dreams.
6. Meet with a professional psychic.
Professional psychics are people who not only have mastered keeping their third eye open, they have honed their powers to be able to interact with spirits on behalf of others. As we’ve said before, the third eye is the door to clairvoyance. So if there’s anyone out there that can help you discover the power of your third eye, it’s a psychic.
You can find top-rated psychics on Keen at affordable per-minute rates. The platform has a whole section dedicated to spiritual readings with psychics who can help guide you to finding balance and inner peace.

The road to opening your third eye may be long and challenging. While some people are more naturally inclined towards inner peace and clarity, others struggle immensely with achieving it. If you’re in the latter group (like me), don’t give up.
