Here are 8 ways to use your third eye. Your third eye is your receiver of information outside of your five human senses. It's represented by the indigo chakra which is its energetic form, and the pineal gland, its physical form. Most of us are not aware that our third eye is there or trained to use it. Many believe it's closed and needs opening, when it merely requires focus, exercise and practice.
We receive information using our third eye all the time but this information is largely ignored, we're unaware of it or it's considered unreliable information. It's represented physically as the pineal gland located at the center of the brain and contains water rods and cones similar to an actual eye. Why would we have an eye in the center of our brain? What's it seeing or sensing?
The truth is, the third eye doesn't just see (and that would be your clairvoyance), it also receives audio (clairaudience), physical sensation and emotions (clairsentience), and information as a sense of 'just knowing' (claircognizance). Plus your intuition, and I'll get into how to receive these in a moment.
You can also connect and transmit using your third eye; for example, when we connect with our higher self for channeling, channeling higher wisdom and foresight, we reach out energetically during meditation. This activity centers around the third eye. The third eye connects us to all that there is, so we can receive foresight of what is to come, through premonitions or precognition, perhaps a vision, or a claircognizant knowing of the future.
The third eye transcends the illusion of time. Other people can also knowingly or unknowingly pick up on our thoughts, physical sensations and emotions, as we send these energies out into reality. Their third eyes receive this information too.
8 Ways To Use Your Third Eye
1. Pay Attention
So I'm here to tell you that you're likely already using your third eye, and perhaps taking it for granted. Intuition is received through the third eye subtly, easily, and spontaneously. You subconsciously process those feelings of the right or wrong thing to do, the best way forward, or the potential outcomes of something. Your subconscious mind may present this to your conscious mind as a feeling or 'just knowing', and we often ignore this and instead make a logical, fact-based, conscious decision.
But where is the information coming from that our third eye is receiving? Well it could be part of you, your higher self or soul, or even your guides. Your third eye could be simply picking up on the code of the information in reality and relaying it through your subconscious as a sense of knowing, a gut feeling, or even feeling really excited about something you just know will be great.
So my suggestion on how to use your third eye, is to stop worrying if it's open and functioning, and start paying attention to information that's already coming through.
2. Go Inward
Next on how to use your third eye, is to be quiet, remove all noise and distraction, get comfortable and go inward. Concentrate and focus using meditation. In this way we train our mind to be calm, quiet and focused, so that when our third eye is receiving we're able to detect it.
During meditation, you can:
- Focus on your breathing.
- Count your breaths up to ten and start again.
- Repeat a mantra such as 'I am love' on the in-breath and again on the out-breath.
Discipline and focus your mind by removing thought for a while. The third eye works best when we're quiet, relaxed and unclouded with thought.
3. Journeying and Projecting
You can use your third eye for journeying and projecting. You can join a journeying or drumming circle and reach a hypnotic or trance state with the use of drums, music or other instruments. During meditation, you can practice astral projection techniques. Your third eye receives visions and images for your conscious mind to process. When we explore our planet or even the universe using our consciousness alone, the information is received via our third eye.
Use your third eye for clairvoyance. This is when images spontaneously pop into the mind. You're about to go to sleep, or during meditation (this is when your brain activity lowers to the Alpha state), you may see random images or visions that pop into your mind. This is oftentimes your third eye seeing into other realities, dimensions, places and times, there for you to access in the fabric of the energy of reality.
My point is, do you see how subtle, gentle and spontaneous it all is? Yes you can brush it off as random imagination as most people do, but we can suspect it's our third eye at work when those images just pop in there, somewhat out of context and at random.
Once we realize the simplicity of the process, we can move into taming it in order to send out intention to receive answers to our questions. Furthermore, you can try asking a question of your higher self when you're very relaxed and see what arrives in your mind visually.
You can use your third eye for clairaudience, maybe you've experienced this before but not realized it. It's like your inner monologue, that voice in your mind, but it may be heard as other people's voices that come through when you're relaxed or meditative.
It could be the occasional spirit passing by, a loved one passed over, or perhaps your guides speaking to you. If you experience this, it can be worked upon to develop channeling abilities or mediumship.
Claircognizance however, is really key for most channelers. It is similar to intuition but usually for receiving direct communication from spirits, the higher self, guides or interdimensional beings.
Remember to practice protection when embarking on a path of becoming a channeler or a medium though. When you sit, go inward and allow your third eye to receive claircognizant messages from your higher self, asking direct questions and waiting a few moments for that 'just knowing' or sudden revelation to pop into your mind. A simple process that is often made out to be difficult.
Claisentience is also received by your third-eye. Experienced as physical sensations (perhaps pain or even sexual energy) and emotions. We experience them as if they're our own. We are involuntarily receiving them from other people or even spirit.
An empath is someone who picks up primarily emotions from others, empathically or clairsentiently. All received by the third eye.
8. More Uses Of The Third Eye
Here's a list of other times you'd use your third eye, and I have videos or articles on most of these, so do search for them won't you. My Intuitive and Psychic Development Course can help you to develop many of these.
You'd use your third eye when receiving a download and all types of channeling, for example;
Automatic writing or typing.
All forms of divination (as we're making divine connection) such as:
Tarot cards, Angel and Oracle cards.
Scrying and crystal ball.
You also use your third eye for everything under the psychic umbrella such as;
Reading the atmospheres or energies of places.
Reading the Akashic records.
Rnergy healing such as Reiki.
And many more, even intuitive counseling and spiritual guidance.
We use our third eye for all those senses outside of our physical senses. We receive information from our higher aspects of self, beings in the physical, beings not in the physical, the Akashic records and reality itself.
So be open to receive and pay attention. Realize these are subtle processes that can be mistaken for thought or imagination. We discern the difference through context, learning what it feels like compared to our usual thoughts and feelings, and the way the information just pops in there. Meditation is key to calm and quiet the mind on an ongoing basis, so that you're not a noisy receiver.
Inner work is required; see my inner work playlist to heal negative emotions, limiting beliefs and biased perceptions, so that we're not twisting information as it comes through.
My Intuitive and Psychic Development Course will help you with many techniques to develop the use of your third-eye, going deep into these topics, taming random receiving into information you can make sense of. Much love.
