Have you ever wondered that weird feeling of having to go somewhere just to “have a feeling”? Or that you avoid confronting a situation, but can’t find a way to justify that decision?
That is the intuition that the Third Eye guarantees us. You practice it, you exercise it, until you can easily open it.
We explain in our blog “A beginner Guide to your Chakras”, your Third Eye (or Ajna), is located in between your eyes. This chakra is responsible for your intuition, imagination and great instinct. Every time you have a gut feeling, you’re using the energy and perception of it. So, maybe now you’ve been wondering how can you open your third eye?
This chakra is known as the center of transfiguration, is the quick definition of a duality where “I” separate from the “now”, from the present world. Then, “I” transform into an independent being from everything else.
And how can you experience the feeling of a transcendent self? This blog may help you find the right way.
- Silence is your best friend
Silence is vital for concentration and meditation, you need to sharpen the senses while nature absorbs you.
Imagine yourself climbing a rock, each step is one closer to the top. You’re gradually rising in level, and that is the perception of the third eye. With this, you can connect with the universe and go a little further.
Suddenly, you will hear messages and information of wisdom whispered by the same seeing, but if your mind is disturbed, the message could be affected by some interference.
- Exercise the Intuition.
Practicing and exercising the third eye is important to be able to use it in the best possible way.
Sweetening your intuition with giving meaning to your dreams, learning to read the horoscope or the stars, acquiring more skills with perception will help strengthen your third eye.
This one goes hand in hand with esoteric practices, they may seem a bit strange at first, but eventually they will become day-to-day for you.
Keep in mind that this must be taken with curiosity and a fairly open mind, it works as a “fake it till you make it”.
- Be creative.
The healthiest thing for this is to let your rational part rest a little and let your impulsive thoughts flow. Let your emotions carry you away. Don’t worry about having that little whisper in your neck that tells you if you are doing it right or wrong.
The results will be full of inspiration, freedom, positivity. There is no need to be perfect, just “do” and don’t question. Thus, your third eye has a better chance to shine and flourish without the opposition of that rational and critical part.
- Stay grounded before flying away.
You must be aware that to make these extrasensory interpretations you need to build a floor, a foundation where you understand that, before flying, you must learn to flap your wings from a surface that keeps you lucid.
When you open your third eye, you start to receive information suddenly, in an unusual way, and it can cause some imbalance. And keeping your feet on the ground helps everything to be subtly processed, without the need for any negative symptoms such as disorientation or confusion.
