Ok, I’ll be honest. Intentional third-eye chakra activation work hasn’t always been my jam. It brings up memories of YouTube energy forecasters stating that the thing that was missing from my life, the thing that would solve all my problems, was my third eye opening… I didn’t even fully understand what the third eye was at the time and how it integrated into presence, but it just felt off to me.
I am sometimes asked, “how do I balance this chakra,” “how do I activate that chakra,” and while there are beautiful practices out there (one of which I’ll guide you through this month in Bliss Body), I don’t believe that this process can be rushed. Maybe you’ll experience a permanent shift after one meditation… or maybe it’ll take months or years.
Third Eye Chakra Activation: What You Should Know
If there’s one thing I want you to know before we embark on this month’s exploration of the sacred body and third eye chakra lovemaking, it’s this: “Don’t attach to a moment of awakening.”
The second you start thinking back on that moment of clarity – thinking things like “I just need to make this last… what if this feeling fades away by tomorrow…” – the moment you’re thinking back on your experience, is the very moment you’re no longer in it.
The “third eye,” the energy center between the brows, is found in many spiritual traditions around the globe. It is even believed to be linked to the pineal gland, a pea-sized gland located at the base of the skull, between the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in the brain. The full function of the pineal gland is not known, but we do know it regulates some hormones, including melatonin, which affects the circadian rhythm and reproductive hormones. Renee Descartes called the pineal gland “the seat of the soul.” (Source)
However the science unfolds, one thing is for sure – humans have been detecting a power within this energy center for millennia.
The Tantric texts recommend that students begin working with the third eye first and then with the root chakra, making their way back up.
What to Expect
When your third eye has opened, you can expect the sensation of a fog clearing. The world of duality, right and wrong, good and bad, will become eclipsed by a space of pure presence, freedom, and wordless knowing. From here a deep peace and acceptance arises, and bliss becomes the foundation of your reality. You know exactly what you need to do in each moment and over time, the wisdom of the soul begins to integrate and soothe the ego mind…
Personally, for the past 6 months, I’ve been intensively “working with my third eye,” though not in such direct terms nor with that specific intention, and I can attest to these results. It feels like truly finding the seat of the soul… an access point to magic and divine wisdom.
