Awakening your third eye isn’t necessarily about becoming a full-fledged clairvoyant, but it can help you feel more connected to the intuition and subconscious that you can trust to guide you. This is because the ajna chakra is linked to the inner guru, or your personal guiding force that’s innately within your psyche and spirit. The activation of this energy center is said to provide a clear picture of your life purpose, which allows you to put all the stresses of daily life in perspective and approach them from a more grounded place.
A good way to awaken the ajna chakra is through meditation. You can do this by sitting in a quiet room with your legs crossed or seated in the lotus position. Then, close your eyes and focus on your breath. Inhale for a count of 3 and exhale for a count of 6. Repeat this process up to 10 times. This meditation can help reduce your stress levels and promote a sense of calmness, while also helping you to focus and concentrate.
You can use different techniques to meditate, but the most effective one is the focusing of your mind and awareness on the present moment. This can be done by using a technique known as “mindfulness,” which involves being aware of each aspect of your physical and spiritual well-being in each and every moment of your day.
Those who experience third eye meditation unlock your life often report that they notice a better sense of attention to detail, increased light sensitivity (sight and sound may appear brighter or more vivid), as well as an enhanced imagination. For those who want to try a more hands-on approach, Reiki master, astrologer, and spiritual coach Ambi Kavanagh recommends using crystals like labradorite, celestite, or azurite to aid in the awakening of the ajna chakra.
