The third eye sits on the forehead, directly in between and just above the eyebrows. It is the gateway to psychic ability; the conduit to all that is unseen by our physical eyes.
The Third Eye Corresponds To The Pineal Gland
The third eye has a tangible component in the form of the pineal gland, which is an important part of the entire endocrine system. This gland produces melatonin, the hormone that facilitates sleep. It is small but powerful. Just the size of a green pea, the pineal gland regulates the sleeping and waking cycles. It corresponds to the intangible but very significant concept of the psychic third eye and it is located right in the center of the brain.
The Eye Has To Be Awakened Through Practice
In most people, the third eye is dormant and has been made so by atrophy. In keeping with the concept of “use it or lose it,” the third eye will not be active and strong unless regularly utilized, just like any other muscle or system in our bodies. If it has been asleep for a long time, there are steps to be taken in order to first reawaken and then strengthen this long dormant ability.
3 Steps To Open Your Third Eye
Simple, easy-to-practice activities can gently revive this power to “see beyond.” It doesn’t take any expensive equipment, classes, or workshops to build the third eye into the powerhouse psychic system it was meant to be. Even very busy people can carve out a little time each day to do a bit of easy, yet effective practice. Just select one of these options and dedicate 20 minutes per day to activate this important gateway to the unseen.
1. Yoga To Channel Energy
Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years and was originally reserved as a purely spiritual activity. Today, there are many who still view it as such, but it is also a very popular way to get exercise and is offered in gyms and classes routinely. Consider reclaiming yoga as a personal journey by harnessing its power to open the third eye. Yoga balances the body and gently massages the internal organs. Through this massage, the body is detoxified and cleansed.

When balanced, all of the systems are relaxed and begin to run in optimum condition. As this occurs, the dormant powers are free to awaken because less energy is being spent on “keeping things running.” As operations become more automated, a much greater amount of energy flows to the dormant systems and allows them to activate.
Think of a car. When everything in the car is optimized, all the systems work properly. If it has something misaligned, such as an electrical line, then many things can stop working. Fix the car, and everything works again. The body is also a machine, and keeping it running smoothly is essential. Yoga is the perfect way to gently let the third eye know it is time to wake up.
2. Meditation To Activate The Third Eye
Meditation is a very active way of tapping into the third eye. Through meditation, direct focus is placed on the eye, and targeted signals are sent to activate it.
- Begin with closed eyes.
- Release any tension in the body.
- Take 10 deep, cleansing breaths, holding for 5 seconds between each breath.

This will slow the heart rate and align the glands to a relaxed state. Now, visualize the inside of the stomach bathed in beautiful cleansing light and place the conscious mind there. A small ladder appears in the middle, and the consciousness begins to ascend as the healing light follows and envelopes it. Climbing slowly, continue to breathe in a relaxed way, filling the lungs to capacity, but not straining. Make note of all the internal systems. When the heart is reached, the light surrounds it, strengthening it. As the light and the conscious mind continue their journey through the throat and into the head, the breathing should be totally relaxed, slow, and regular. Now, visualize the third eye. It is closed. The light and consciousness stand in front of it and give a gentle greeting. Try saying “this is where my conscious mind and unconscious mind meet.” As that phrase is repeated, imagine the third eye opening slowly, until it is fully awake. Sit in this moment for as long as it takes to feel that the conscious and unconscious minds are integrated. Slowly open your physical eyes, secure in the realization that the third eye is activated.
3. Psychic Exercises To Keep It In Perfect Condition
It is best to participate in psychic exercises after yoga and meditation have delivered a sense of being ready to undertake active practice. There are many reputable sites online which offer free exercises in psychic ability. These may utilize guessing games, matching quizzes, cards, and prediction games. Consider using these sites to get comfortable with a high level of accuracy before venturing into the world of actual readings.

Social networking can offer a great opportunity to find people who are also interested in developing their abilities, and practice sessions with these acquaintances can go a long way to do so. It is more difficult to practice on friends because a high level of actual information is already known about the person, clouding what can be considered a “hit.”
Regardless of who the subject is, make sure the environment of the reading is comfortable and private. Dedicate at least 20 minutes to the session. Make note of each correct item you communicate to your subject. This will build confidence and show how much improvement is achieved each time.
As the saying goes, “practice makes perfect,” and implementing all of these strategies will greatly strengthen your psychic ability and keep the third eye in perfect condition. Just 20 minutes a day of simple exercise can create a world in which the unseen becomes clear and intuition feels as natural as breathing.
