How to Activate and Open Your Third Eye

The third eye is a symbol of enlightenment and higher consciousness. When your third eye is open, you'll feel more in sync with your intuition. You'll gain a deeper understanding of the potential of all beings and the connectedness of the universe.

All of your self-doubt will fall away. If this sounds like something that may be of interest to you, please scroll below. I am going to offer a few effective techniques to help you open your third eye.

Get Curious 

Closed third eyes love the narrow-minded. In order to awaken your third eye, it's time to get curious about anything and everything that sparks an interest within you. When was the last time your body tingled from passion, interest, and curiosity?

Pick up a new hobby, read a new book, talk to new people, and get outdoors! Go somewhere that you've never been before. You'll expand your horizons and the world will seem bigger. Tap into your creative and intellectual self by consuming interesting material.  


If you refuse to go inward, then your third eye will remain closed. You've got to embrace your inner mind. Make sure that you're sitting in a quiet place, as the third eye gives whispery messages. If it's too noisy, you might get distracted and miss the subtle message. 

During your session, focus your attention on your third eye. Visualize it's opening. What is the experience like when it opens? What sensations are you feeling in your body? Perhaps your body is pulsing with a low vibration and the world looks a bit brighter. Self-reflection and contemplation is the best way to open the third eye. 

Dream Journal 

The third eye is an avenue for higher perception and deeper consciousness. Your dreams are more than just pointless broken fragments of the day. Look at them like messages from the divine. From the murky depths of the unconsciousness, something is emerging.

To ignore these messages would be a disservice to your intuitive nature. Pay attention to your dreams. When you wake up, instead of rushing around to get everything finished, open up a dream journal. 


I know you've heard this time and time again, but what you eat truly does matter! Your diet affects your hormones and energy levels, which influences your emotional self. If you eat junk food all day long, your chakras will become misaligned.

Apparently the third eye has a hankering for purple foods! Try eating blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, purple potatoes, grapes, purple kale, and purple cabbage. Eating clean will help nudge your third eye open. 

Essential Oils and Incense 

Certain scents appeal to your spiritual self. Lemon, sandalwood, lavender, and sage scents will cleanse the body and mind of negative energies, enhance enlightenment, and help mend spiritual wounds.

Try  breathing in the scent from a diffuser or an incense burner. Or, you could try rubbing essential oils (mixed with a carrier oil) on your skin. Here at Incense Falls we have a plethora of incense cones and burners to choose from! I have no doubt that you'll be able to open up your third eye chakra if you practice patience and commitment. 


Thank you for reading my blog post on ways to activate and open your third eye chakra! We all want to be in tune with our spiritual self, but it's not always that easy. You actually have to implement these practices in order to feel the difference. When your third eye opens, you'll know. You'll feel it in the core of your being. I hope you have a peaceful day full of joy and love. I appreciate that you took the time to read my post. Best wishes!
