What Is the Third Eye Chakra?

If you’ve ever had a moment of déjà vu or a gut feeling that turned out to be correct, then you’ve likely experienced the amazing ability of your Third Eye Chakra.

Located just above and between your two eyes, the Third Eye Chakra is known as Ajna in Ayurvedic philosophy. Recognized as the sixth chakra in the body, the Third Eye Chakra is also associated with the pineal gland.

Spiritually, the Third Eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment and is commonly associated with clairvoyance, religious or spiritual visions, precognition, the ability to observe auras, and out-of-body experiences and astral projection.

For those who are curious about tapping into their Third Eye Chakra, there are several steps you can take to try and activate your Third Eye.


Simple breathing exercises such as those mentioned in this Grounding Tips for Couples article and this elemental balancing ritual are a fantastic place to start learning how to ground yourself.


Candice Covington, author of “Essential Oils in Spiritual Practice: Working with the Chakras, Divine Archetypes, and the Five Great Elements,” suggests that certain foods have properties that can help. These include raw cacao, garlic, watermelon, honey, ginseng, star anise, lemon, and cilantro.


Because smell is a powerful tool that can instantly transport us to a different time and place, it makes sense to include essential oils on this list. Scents like jasmine, lemongrass, sandalwood, frankincense, and clary sage can be used alone or in various combinations. Place a few dabs on your pulse points, especially when doing your grounding exercises. The temples, Third Eye, inner wrists, and inner elbows are all good locations to apply these scents and oils.


Amethyst, labradorite, selenite, rhodonite, sodalite, moldavite, moonstone, apatite, kyanite, lapis lazuli, and jeremejevite are all excellent “seeing” stones that can amplify your abilities.

Meditation and Chanting

Meditation can activate the pineal gland. “Chanting causes the tetrahedron bone in the nose to resonate, which causes stimulation of the pineal gland,” Covington claims. Chanting mantras also can help by bringing about feelings of deep appreciation and gratitude.

Divine Intelligence

Goddesses of divination can aid in activating and energizing the Third Eye. Diana, Hecate, Pythia, Delepitore, and Circe are all excellent options for working with Divine Intelligence. Diana, Roman goddess of the moon, is linked with intuition and magick. Hecate was the Greek goddess of the in-between, the place between life and death, and of magick, and she acts as the guardian of the crossroads. Pythia was the Oracle of Delphi and a High Priestess of Apollo. People would come from miles around to hear the prophecies that she channeled from the gods. Delepitore is the Dukante patroness of divination, intuition, and magick. Finally, in Greek mythology, Circe was a sorceress skilled in herbs and potions, with the power to transform her enemies into animals.


Listening to Third-Eye-opening music or working with sound bowls tuned to Third-Eye-opening frequencies may be helpful. These techniques can be employed as stand-alone activities or added to your general meditation practice.

Sun Gazing

The sun is a great source of power. Spend some time outside in the morning and the evening. Enjoy watching the sunset or the sunrise. These practices can give your Third Eye a boost.

Lucid Dreaming

This occurs when you are dreaming in REM sleep but are completely conscious and aware of your dream.  While lucid dreaming, you can direct your Third Eye to expand what you are seeing in your dream world.


Yoga is a powerful and effective way to get your Third Eye to open.  After all, yoga and the philosophy of chakras come from the Vedas of ancient India.


You can’t expect to get results if you aren’t consistent with your practice. You need to include some type of activity that stimulates the pineal gland/Third Eye every day.

Why Activate the Third Eye Chakra?

Activating your Third Eye Chakra provides several benefits. You will find yourself experiencing less stress, which will have a positive effect on your physical health. You might feel more at peace with yourself and your life. You may also find that you feel more knowledgeable because you have more trust in your intuition.

According to many people, an open Third Eye, sometimes referred to the sixth sense, can increase perceptive, intuitive, and spiritual abilities. Dedicate 10 minutes a day to your opening practice, and in time you will experience the advantages of seeing with a Third Eye.
