How to Open Your 3rd Eye Chakra – Teal Swan

At the most basic level your body
is made up of energy. In other words that energy organizes and condense itself into the
physical body that you see today in the mirror. But before it does that it organizes
itself in the meridians and chakras. Chakras are centers of energy that are organized along these
energy channels. Each one has a specific vibration and lends to a specific purpose. Essentially each chakra is a specific
expression of prana, which is life force energy. But what most people dont know
about chakras is that they both emit and receive energy. “How to open your third eye chakra” When a chakra is out of alignment, meaning that it is creating an imbalance or is not letting life force in, it creates massive imbalances in the entire being. Including the physical body and the emotional body and the mental body. When chakras are out of alignment they appear small, they do not absorb or emit much energy. They also change in colour, patterning texture and sound. The traditional name for the sixth chakra, in the system, is Ajna. This translates, from sanskrit into perceive or beyond wisdom, which alludes to what the chakra is
all about. Its all about Clairvoyance. To locate the chakra just find your
brow ridge It’s that part of your forehead that protrudes around your eyebrows or at the same location as your eyebrows. Which you want to do is to trace this go slightly up where you’ll feel a
tiny indentation in the bottom center of your forehead. Most people have that slight identation in perfect correlation with/ where their third eye chakra is located. This chakra, the third eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the energy system, the primary energy system. We may be getting into the other chakras which are outside the primary system,
later. But now do you understand where the idea of sixth sense came from? The concept of the sixth sense came from this sixth chakra,
your third eye Which is all about intuition. When this chakra is open we not only see but also understand our inner and outer world. Fitting in nicely to the theme
of clairvoyance this chakra governs clarity, intuition, self- realization, observation, astral travel, lucid dreaming, concentration, witnessing and imagination. It’s also the seat of the conscience This means it governs not only awareness of what is truly happening
but also what it means. What I find to be the greatest
implication for this chakra, however is that this chakra is designed to transcend duality and polarity. It is a unifying chakra, much like the heart chakra. Most of the time we are so identifyied
with ourselves that we are stuck in a kind of
narcissistic bubble. We are stuck in our own
individual perception. Now what the third eye chakra does is it gets us completely outside that, so that we can expand our awareness, to such a degree that we are no longer limited by our own indiviual perception. We now can accommodate views that are completely opposite to our own. Doing this ends the battle between different perspectives, it unifies different perspectives even completely polarized and opposite
perspectives. That is absolutely amazing. On top of that because it is the great unifier in terms
of awareness it also unifys the right and left
hemisphere of the brain, which gets rid of disunited thinking. You can think of the consciousness is associated with the third eye as a kind of light beam that acts as a razor blade to cut through illusion. Because of this it can dismantle any
limiting thought Knowing all this then its obvious, why this sixth chakra,
the third eye chakra, has been associated with psychic abilities
for so long, because our genuine awareness goes far far beyond just our
physical limitations and the physical dimension. So earlier I did this episode on
the crown chakra I’ve done every chakra besides this one, in the energy system so far and what I said or didn’t say about
the crown chakra is that no element is associated with
the crown chakra. That’s because the crown chakra is seen as a manifestation of nothingness. Nothing is no thing. It is pure potential energy therefore the colour purple is not the only thing that relates to the
crown chakra, so is black. Now when we look at the third eye chakra it is actually associated with everythingness and so the element that the old philosophers used to associate with the
third eye chakra is actually light, which is seen as everythingness, Every thing, is basically oneness. They considered light to be the combination of every other element. We’re talking water, we’re talking fire, we’re talking earth and we’re talking air. The third eye chakra is also associated with the colour indigo. It must be said that organizing specific parts of the body that belong to specific channels and specific chakras and no other chakra, its a really limited way of seeing things. Its not the way that the body
actually works, but we have a very difficult time understanding that different chakras actually co- govern areas of the body. So for the sake of your understanding, I’ve done my best to try to separate it out for you a bit, but it gets a lot more difficult when you look at the third eye chakra, a lot more difficult than even
the other chakras. p.e: The third eye chakra together with the crown chakra govern the pineal gland, a bit like a king and a queen in perfect balance of power would govern a kingdom. The pineal gland is a part of the human
system that deserves its own episode. It is so central to the human capacity
or inability to perceive beyond the physical reality, it is our desire to make things
black and white though, which wants us to say that a certain chakra governs a specific part of the body. That being said, the third eye chakra greatly influences the pituitary gland in conjunction with the throat chakra. Also the hypothalamus, the eyes, the frontal sinuses, many parts of the brain, especially the outer portions
of the brain, the skull, ears, nose, endocrine system and parasympathetic nervous system. So to scare the crap out of you I’m gonna give you some common things that are associated with this chakra, the third eye chakra being out of alignment. Some of the most common things that you’ll see are seizures, you’ll see dementia, you’ll see headaches and migraines, hallucinations, dissociation, confusion, eye problems, hormon imbalances, all kind of sleep disturbances, black and white thinking, no sense of direction, prejudices, strokes, brain tumors, sinusitis, paranoia, delusions, anxiety, depression, cynicism, closed mindedness, denial, skull-, scalp- and hair problems, ear problems, learning disabilities, loss of a sense of conscience or apathy, rigid perspectives, lack of ethics, mental illnesses, disturbances in appetite and temperature regulation. I know I’ve mentioned this
before in my videos but I’m gonna reiterate it
because it’s so important. So many people who will teach you about chakras, love to tell you that they have to be in balance
and in balance means, it’s possible for a chakra to be too open
and too close. Thats not actually the case. This is our human sense of need to control something through diminishing it in some way. What`s actually true is that if all chakras were perfectly open there would be inherently an equilibrium established in the energy system. So what we are looking to do is not to detract or limit any one of our chakras
in any way, we’re looking to make each chakra open to the utmost capacity and by each chakra doing that, we find this kind of homeostasis that we are wanting to achieve. All that being said, how do we open the third eye chakra and bring it into a state of alingment? 1. Commit to the path of integration. We could say the enemy of this chakra is duality and is polarity, now, ironically i gonna have to take
that back later, because the more aware we become the less we have any enemy, but for the sake of your understanding lack of integration is the enemy
of this chakra. So what we have to do is to end polarity and duality by getting outside of our own individual perspective. We gotta stop identifying with a singular perceptual reality and that includes fragments within ourselves that have an individual perspective. To understand more about this I want you to watch my video titled: “Fragmentation the worldwide disease” 2. We must commit to the path of
selfawareness above all. Why is this? Because obviously our own projections, our own fears, our own limiting thoughts are going to influence our capacity to bring in information from other places in the universe. We color and distort messages that are being sent to us because
they’re coming through our own perceptual reality. So the more aware, of your own perceptual reality, you are and the more you have broken
outside of it and can actually see yourself, the better of a channel for these energies you will be. Stretch your perspective no matter how uncomfortable that may be, this is the order of the day The more you do this the less likely misinterpretation or any kind of false sight will be. 3. Literally any practice that increases
your awareness or stretches your perspective, is going to enhance your third eye chakra It makes absolutely no sense for me to sit here and be like
“this is the best one” because there are so many and obivously certain people need to stretch
their perspectives in this way and other people need to stretch their
perspectives in this way. But I’ll give you some examples Meditation, learning something, chanting, vizualisation, exercises that enhance intuiton, self-questioning, divination, lucid dreaming, dream work, channeling, Yoga, focus exercises, mindfulness techniques, art or breath work. Literally there has never been a video created by me and never will be
a video created by me that does not increase the opening of your sixth chakra. 4. Nothing clears the sixth chakra,
your third eye more than shadow work. Why? Because the third eye chakra is all
about awareness and shadow is the collective or the individual unconscious, so they’re completely juxtaposed. Remember how I said that
duality and polarity was the nemesis of the third eye chakra. Well, the third eye chakra has another
nemesis, that nemesis is illusion. Up until the day when your awareness or your perceptual reality is wide to the degree that it can include illusion as part of itself. Now for most of you that’s gonna make absolutely no sense and because of where most of you are I’m not going to explain it either but believe me that when you
rewatch this video, you’re gonna laugh at what I just said. Shadow work is the work of making the unknown or subconscious known and seen If you would like more awareness
about this, watch my video titled: “What is shadow work?” 5. Any practice that enhances your
intuition and imagination is gonna do wonders for opening
your sixth chakra. In my opinion the most important
first step that you can take in the direction of intuition is getting in touch
with your feelings, learning how to feel. We’re living in the emotional Dark Age
right now Most people are so dissociated
from their body that they cant feel the sensations
that arrive in their body and here’s the thing If you are gonna be pulling energy from other places in the universe, pulling information, it still gonna translate through
your body. So perceiving things that exist beyond the third dimensional reality is still gonna be translated through your physical body
as a sensation. And if you can’t feel, if you are dissociated from your feelings if you’re desensitized from your feelings It’s gonna be a lot more quiet of
a message or you’re gonna miss the message entirely. For this reason I suggest you to watch
my video titled: “How to feel” The next best practice is creating Now creating can be anything it can be as simple as creating art When you’re in the process of creating you are not inhibiting yourself in any way Your channels are completely open, not only that you have to use
your imagination. Now when we progress through
our life experience people love to shut down our imagination. Children are naturally born with a
wicked imagination. Because we don’t differentiate between what we imagine what we can create
to be real but when we start to define that for kids and we say that’s just your imagination
and that’s what’s real Is that people let go of their
imagination, they let go of their capacity to create
with their mind. Now most of this information that is gonna be coming to you especially in the minds eye,
to begin with, its going to stretch your imagination. You’re gonna feel like youre imagining it
right? But if you have a limited imagination you’re not gonna actually going to even be able to stretch far enough to receive many of these messages, that are being given to you from outside of our time- space reality. Your mind actually will be so limited that it can’t actually conceive it. In other words if you can’t be imaginative the mind’s eye is so limited it will not be able to accommodate those images, that exist beyond
normal sight. It would be like fitting an ocean
through a straw. 6. Get away from or limit your exposure
to electric fields and magnetic fields. Unless you’re using them intentionally This includes your cell phone, this includes your computer, this includes electric wires. The frequency that is being emitted
from this including radiation sources, affects your sixth chakra the most. It affects all the chakra system, but really affects that system. 7. Get sleep. I know this is easier said than done for many of us but this chakra depends upon getting
good sleep So many things that apply to our sense of awareness in life are actually the result of our
sleeping process. So when you’re doing this, committing to getting enough sleep and making sure you’re not staying up when you’re not supposed to be staying up It’s important to get sleep in conjunction with your own circadian rhythms and if you’re in a really healthy state
circadian rhythms you’re going to naturally mirror or mimic the overall cycles of the earth you are living on , the stars,
day and night. 8. Star gazing For some of you this star gazing is gonna progress to Sun gazing Why? because the Sun is a star. Star gazing is to your third eye chakra what a bottle cleaner is to a bottle. it basically flushes the channel that has clogged up that energy flow, that naturally comes in
through that chakra. It forces entrainment with
those frequency that transcends human perceptual
limitations as well. 9. Silence Silence is incredibly good especially for your crown chakra and for your third eye chakra. Silence is to the third eye chakra or your sixth chakra as fasting is to your sixth chakra. It is a way of clearing the space
and information inundating the chakra system and senses so as to make space for us to simply be in a simply witness state of
aware presence. This enhances our awareness
and leads to clarity. Many of the sages of the old world went into periods of silence for this
very reason. It creates not only deeper internal peace but also deep inner listening which leads
to awareness 10. Expose yourself to sunlight
on a daily basis Now when it comes to the skin, it’s best to expose the skin to
direct sunlight for a certain amount of time. I’m not talking go cook yourself but allow yourself to really absorb
the energy of your primary star which is called the sun. And when it comes to the eyes, some of you will try Sun gazing but indirect sunlight is okay The thing is don’t wear sunglasses It does incredible things for your ‘
sixth chakra to take those sunglasses off and let sunlight penetrate through
the pupils of your eye. Not only does allowing sunlight,
in this way, affect just the chakra but it really affects all the glands associated with the chakra. 11. Stimulate this chakra with sound. When it comes to toning the best for this chakra tent to be
shammm also ohmmm and thooow. Now, play around with the pitch so if I’m doing sham I go
(voice up and down) to I find whatever frequency vibrates this area of my body and then if you’re doing toning
you hold it. Figure out and play with which one of these sounds works the best for you. You can also find binaural beats or
different harmonics on the internet designed specifically for this chakra and you can also expose yourself to
crystal singing bowls, designed for this chakra. That being said the heart chakra is really responsive
to music in general so is this chakra. This chakra is all about awareness and listening to all kinds of different
types of music tends to stimulate this area of your
body incredibly Because each time it listens to a new tone or a new lyirc, it’s gaining awareness of a whole
new perspective. 12. The third eye chakra can be stimulated
by the colour indigo and by surrounding yourself with
that color and wearing that color. However What’s a little interesting about
this chakra is that is the most stimulated by a multitude of different colors. This chakra loves the concept of rainbow It likes a bit of everything at once This means be in environments with all different vibrant color
varieties, eating a meal that includes all the
colors in the spectrum, decorating your surroundings to be
a riot of color instead of monotone. 13. So now that I’m going to talk to you
about diet because diet is important for all
of your body, right but its so important, so important for
your third eye chakra its insane and its one of the primary reasons why you see people who identify
themselves as super spiritual or seers, having such a strict regiment when it comes to what they consume. If you want to enhance your
third eye chakra you’re gonna have to eat a vegan diet. Do not eat any processed foods
or pesticides, no refined sugar including alcohol, which is in fact treated similarly
in the body to sugar. Do not take calcium supplements or foods with calcium carbonate. If you feel you need calcium, take it in the form of sesame seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, kale and broccoli. Limit consumption of fluoride. This includes not using
fluoride toothpaste and not drinking water or eating things with fluoride in it. Chlorine or Bromide also have to be avoided. The denser that a food is and the more grounding it is the more it’s going to polarize
or oppose this chakra This is why so often when you see people go on these journeys where they want to use their third eye to increase their awareness in some way. They will severely limit or restrict whatever it is that they are eating. They want to only go for foods that are very light that don’t create a grounding in the body so that they can get out of their body, so as to gain this type of awareness. This is why fasting is so incredibly good
for this chakra Here are some other things
that you want to include if you want a super open 3rd eye. Apple cider vinegar, foods that are rich in iodine
like seaweed, goji berries, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, gotu kola, cranberries, green beans, spirulina, chlorella and prunes. Eat foods that are naturally high
in magnesium, not magnesium phosphate also eat tamarind fruit, raw cacao, coconut oil, lavender, blueberries, eye bright tea, calendula tea, elderberry, rosmary and parsley. The more natural that a product or thing is when you take it in the better it will be for your
sixth chakra and the more easy will be for the energy to flow in and out
of this center of your body I also want to make a real serious point you don’t want to eat out of plastics
or drink out of them and never touch a microwave. 14. Fasting, I made this point briefly
in the point before but I thought it should be its own point. Nothing responds to fasting quite like
your third eye chakra Here’s why When you’re fasting you’re not inundating
your body with anything that grounds it to the
physical dimension So it becomes much much easier for you to access awareness that is outside the
physical dimension. That being said Really really important to not use fasting in an unhealthy way and so many people especially those that
identify themselves as spiritual use fasting as a way to escape instead of to deliberately find certain
information Most people who are spiritual resist the physical dimension. Fasting is not to be used as a form
of escapism In other words don’t use fasting so as to dissociate from your body or from your lower chakras, which is easily done. But that being said there is a reason why fasting is used as a method of creating greater
spiritual awareness across cultures. 15. Use essential oils to help
this chakra come into a state of alignment
and to stimulate it. I’m gonna give you a list of those that I consider to be the ones that
enhance your thirdeye the most. My personal top picks are
elderberry seed oil, almond blossom, pine, jasmin, juniper, monkshood- be careful with that one, lupine, hyazinths, palo santo, manuka, nutmeg, china aster, rosewood, frankincense, myrrh, most all of the fruit essential oils, vanilla, galbanum, carrot seeds, sandalwood, angelica, clary sage and baylaurel. 16. It is of course allways your
personal choice and you have to be very aware of the legalites of such a decision, based on what area of the globe
you live in. But shamanic medicines are designed specifically to open this chakra. Obviously shamanic medicines affect all of the energy system as well. So its not like they just isolated
to this, but they affect the 3rd eye chakra. So much that they have been used for thousands
and thousands of years to increase our awareness and our perspective and our intuition. So what we’re talking about is things
like ayahuasca, Iboga, psilocybin mushrooms and peyote, just to name a few. These crash through the blockages that are preventing your third eye
from opening in a way that some people cannot handle. So I have to issue a bit of a warning even though these medicines are amazing and they have been used for thousands
of years and I have seen them do incredible
things myself. Many people cannot integrate the awareness when they aren’t ready for it. So what they do basically is they force this chakra open and when most people their individual
perspectives hasn’t increased of the frequency yet where they are capable of stretching their perspective in that way and then translating that perspective back into their physical reality, people can actually quiet easily slip into a state of psychosis. So remember when I told you that when something is
out of alignment you tend to have all of these
negative associations with the third eye chakra, right So let’s say that you dont have a super developed root chakra and you go and do one of these medicines and it opens you so wide you may see some of this
side effects, that I’ve listed before, things like hallucinations, things like paranoia, even suicidality can happen as a result So it’s important for you to know that even though it’s an incredible tool for breaking through the barriers, it also has some potential risks. 17. Bring certain mineral spirits
into your life These stimulate and enhance your chakras. So I’m gonna give you a list of what I consider to be and yes I do disagree with a great
many people on this field about this. I’m gonna tell you which ones I consider to be the most stimulating for the third eye chakra and the first, the one that I consider to be the
absolute best, is moonstone. Other stones that also intensely stimulate the third eye chakra best are Tanzanite, Opalite, glass, iolite, indigo, kyanite, Danburite, …..diamond, opal, blue and purple fluorite, Alexandrite, Labradorite, Moldavite, Pitalite, Azurite, Sapphire and specific Sodalite stones. What I mean by specific is that certain sodalite stones I have seen Influencing the third eye chakra, so intensely it has impressed me but other sodalite stones, the individual stones themselves, don’t influence it at all. As always when you’re picking up
mineral entities to share your life with it’s best to let your intuition guide you towards them. We tend to get locked into an idea that certain stones affect certain parts
of the body but it can be completely surprising. A stone that wouldn’t be associated with a specific chakra for example at all might actually stimulate that chakra for
whatever reason. So when you’re around looking for these mineral spirits let your intuition guide you more than your knowledge about what a
specific stone should or shouldn’t do. By intentionally doing things that enable your third eye chakra to open more and more and come more and more into alignment you will be setting yourself up for a path of awareness and awakening. A path where you are able to expand your own perspectives to such a degree, that you are able to end the polarity that has caused so much suffering
on this life on earth for thousands upon thousands of years. You will be setting yourself up for a life that is guided by intuition a life that is also guided by creativity which will land you directly on the path
of your purpose, a path of complete possibilities
and creation. And all in your life will benefit
as a result on it. So have a good week 🙂 transcribed by Nicole R. Subtitles by the community
