It cannot be overstated how significant the Third Eye chakra activation is. When the Third Eye chakra is active, it gives us excellent vision, the ability to concentrate, good memory, and thinking, and helps us to find a solution for any of our problems easily. It is also responsible for the conscious perception of the surrounding reality, for all mental abilities, learning processes, memory, and willpower.

Having an active Third Eye chakra allows us to listen to our intuition and abide by its guidance. It helps us to predict future events, perceive various messages from above, and interpret them correctly.

The Third Eye chakra (also known as Ajna) is located at the center of your forehead. It is the center of cosmic consciousness and intuition. It energizes the pineal gland and the nervous system and grants those with it the capacity to perceive things as they really are through inner vision and knowledge. Because of this, people commonly refer to it as “The Third Eye”.

Now let’s take a look at 10 techniques for activating The Third Eye chakra.

10 Techniques for Opening the Third Eye Chakra

#1: Colortherapy

One approach to relieving stress is color therapy, which involves utilizing colors to bring about a calming effect. Colors are known to affect moods, and color therapy takes advantage of this by suggesting different colors to be used in different situations. For instance, if a person is feeling anxious, blue or green can be used to help relax them. On the other hand, if a person is feeling sluggish, yellow or orange can be used to give them energy. Experimenting with different colors and finding what works for an individual is important.

The color of the Third Eye Chakra is indigo. Thus, this shade can be employed as a method to energize this spiritual center.

Incorporate the hue of indigo into your everyday life and meditation sessions. Enhance your wardrobe with indigo-colored clothing, and adorn yourself with indigo jewelry. You can also add indigo to your meditations by visualizing this color on your Third Eye Chakra during your meditations and when you are ready to go to sleep. Remember to strike a balance with using this color, yet be sure not to overdo it.

#2: Mantra therapy

Mantras are a good way of reinforcing your aspirations.

Mantra therapy involves reciting certain words or phrases as a way to focus one’s mind and reduce stress. The mantra is usually repeated in a rhythmic fashion, allowing the mind to become calm and relaxed. This type of therapy is believed to help reduce stress and anxiety, as well as helping to create a sense of inner peace.

The mantra for the Third Eye is “OM”. By reciting this syllable, your intuition is stimulated, and you are linked to Superior Knowledge. Whether spoken out loud or silently within your mind, this syllable can be repeated during meditation.

#3: Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is a practice that can be used to gain greater spiritual awareness and physical well-being. This type of yoga combines breathing exercises, physical postures, meditation, and chanting mantras. It is believed to help awaken our spiritual energy, bringing us closer to our highest potential.

Kundalini Yoga, practiced regularly, has the potential to stimulate your Third Eye chakra.

#4: Affirmations

This fourth method involves repeating positive statements to yourself to boost self-confidence and keep a positive attitude.

To stimulate the Third Eye chakra, linking up with your true identity, gut feeling, and inner knowledge can be of great help. To reach this goal, using affirmations on a daily basis could prove to be beneficial.

Here are a few examples of affirmations that can help you with the Third Eye chakra activation:

  • I trust myself and my intuition.
  • I have good intuition and high intelligence.
  • I am a tool in God’s hands. Divine wisdom is being expressed through my existence.

#5: Sound healing and Binaural beats

It’s no secret that music has tremendous spiritual power. By including music in your meditations, you will enhance its positive effect. You can also use binaural beats in your meditations to activate the Third Eye chakra.

#6: Crystals

Our chakras respond to the energy of the colors we see during the day in our environment – nature, food, interior design, clothing, accessories, etc. And when the chakras get into contact with the energy of stones, minerals, and crystals, they perceive it very actively. Therefore, so many healers use crystals for chakra activation and balancing.

Wearing crystals that resonate with your Third eye chakra as jewelry and inviting these crystals into your meditation and healing space will help you activate and balance your Ajna. This is a gentle and safe method of the Third eye chakra activation, which you can safely do on your own.

For Ajna chakra healing and balancing, choose indigo and violet stones, such as:

  • Blue Aventurine
  • Tanzanite
  • Indigolite
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Sodalite
  • Labradorite
  • Azurite
  • Iolite
  • Tanzan Aura Quartz
  • Fluorite
  • Shattuckite
  • Blue Apatite
  • Sapphire
  • Blue Kyanite

# 7: Meditation

There are many different meditations for the Third Eye chakra activation that you can use. Let me share with you two of them.

Take a comfortable position, and begin to focus on the area where your Third Eye chakra is located. It is important at the physical level to feel the increase of pressure in this area. When the pressure increases, visualize how the energy penetrates deep into the head.

Then imagine how a counter flow of energy comes from the center of your head. Watch closely as the two energy streams meet each other and merge, becoming one. Then begin to say (or sing) the OM mantra. Feel the mantra in harmony with the pressure inside your head. Pay more attention to your inner feelings. With the help of such meditation, you will be able to activate your Third Eye chakra and cleanse it from unnecessary energy blocks.

Another option for your meditation practice is to use the guided meditation below.

#8: Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a process of using fragrant plant oils to promote physical and psychological well-being. It has been used for centuries to enhance mood and reduce stress. Aromatherapy is believed to work by stimulating the olfactory system, which is the part of the brain responsible for processing smells. The oils used in aromatherapy are usually extracted from plants and have various therapeutic properties.

Aromatherapy is an excellent method to activate the Third Eye. To do this, you must take eucalyptus essential oil and rub it on the forehead. Apply the oil from the central part of the forehead to the nose. You can do it before you start your meditations or go to bed.

#9: Candle Exercise

This exercise should be performed every day for a month, preferably after sunset.

The essence of this method is as follows: you need to take a candle, light it, and place it in front of you at arm’s length.

Then, for one minute, you need to look at the fire of the candle, trying not to blink and not to look away. After that, close your eyes and try to visualize the glare from the candle in the same place where your Third Eye is.

Every day, add one more minute to your time spent gazing at the flame from a candle. By the conclusion of the month, this practice should span a minimum of thirty minutes.

If you do everything correctly, it will be easier to perform this exercise every day, and you will be able to keep the glare without much effort.

It is impossible to guarantee absolute success in opening the third eye. However, this approach can aid in furthering the development of your inner vision, which is also important.

#10: Energy exercise

This is another potent exercise that can help invigorate your Third Eye chakra.

Concentrate on your Third Eye chakra. Imagine a bright blue energy vortex that is shaped like a ball and rotates in a clockwise direction when viewed from above. This vortex is collecting the same blue energy from your thoughts and drawing it in. The chakra absorbs the energy from the mind and illuminates your head with cold blue light. This energy replenishes and purifies your brain cells, causing the tension in your capillaries and vessels to disappear. You will experience an increase in your cognitive abilities, such as speed of thinking, memory, and other brain functions.

You can energize your chakra and also enhance your brain’s performance by performing this exercise for 10-15 minutes.

The Bottom Line

The Third Eye chakra is the seat of psychic abilities, including intuition, psychic awareness, and clairvoyance. All that’s needed for its activation is self-awareness and commitment. When the Third Eye chakra is active and balanced, you have good mental abilities and can easily connect to your intuition. The above 10 techniques will help you reconnect with your intuition and receive divine guidance.
