Signs Your Third Eye is Opening

third eye

The idea of being able to get a psychic glimpse into the future may sound good, but when your third eye begins to open, there’s a good chance it won’t feel good to you at all. In fact, it might feel downright scary. As if you are losing control of your life, scary. It’s not unusual for everything to go wrong in your life during the period that your third eye is opening.

Strong psychic abilities rarely hit us suddenly or out of the blue. Rather, they tend to come upon us slowly and steadily. The same holds true when your third eye is opening.

You will likely sense that something is different 

Your third eye is an energy center in your body that is located in the middle of your forehead. If you know anything about chakras, the third eye is located at the point of your sixth chakra. The third eye ‘sees’ that which is invisible to the physical eyes.

When your third eye begins to open you’ll start to see life differently. You’ll see glimpses of a world that is invisible to most people. You’ll see that there is more going on beneath the surface of your relationships. You may notice when someone is lying or you may even have an encounter with a spirit or two.

There may be a lot of changes going on around you externally when your third eye is opening. A job loss, a breakup or some other personal crisis may be taking place simultaneously.  And there will definitely be changes going on internally. You’ll know you are going through something. You just might not understand what exactly that is.

Clairvoyants most likely to have a third eye awakening

Psychic ability shows up differently for different people. Those who are clairvoyant tend to pick up on psychic information visually. They may see visions of the future or images of spirits and otherworldly entities that are not visible to the naked eye. Clairvoyants are most likely to experience changes around their third eye when their psychic abilities are growing. If you’re not sure whether or not you have the gift of clairvoyance, you can read more about it here.

If you are not clairvoyant, but rather claircognizant, you may experience changes around your crown, or seventh chakra. (Read about claircognizance here). If you are clairaudient, you may notice that your throat chakra, or fifth chakra becomes activated. (Read more about clairaudience here.)

If you are one of those individuals who are experiencing a third eye awakening, here’s what you might expect. 

You may start seeing things out of the corner of your eye that aren’t there when you look closer

Have you ever thought you saw something flit by you out of the corner of your eye, but when you turned to look there was nothing there? If so, that could be a sign of a third eye awakening. 

Psychic ability flourishes when you learn how to let go of your logical mind’s conscious grip on reality. Turning your head to look at something you saw out of the corner of your eye immediately shifts the focus from your third eye to your physical eyes.  The next time you notice something out of the corner of your eye, try to continue watching from the corner of your eye to see if you pick up anything more. Closing your eyes might also help you to sense what is around you.

Your eyes may start bothering you  

Some people experience pain or other struggles with their eyes when their third eye is opening. They may notice that their eyes are more sensitive to light or they get tired more easily.

This web site will never provide medical advice, and whenever you experience physical symptoms of discomfort you should always see a doctor. However, if the doctor gives you a clean bill of health and your eyes are still bothering you your third eye could be the culprit.

Some people also report feeling pressure around their forehead area when their third eye is awakening. Again, let a doctor rule out anything more serious before assuming your third eye is the cause. 

Your dreams may become colorful or even prophetic

When your third eye begins to open, your dream world often transforms. Some people have nightmares. Others report having prophetic dreams that come true. Some people simply have dreams that are memorable yet they don’t understand what the dreams are trying to tell them. If you notice a significant change to the type of dreams you have been having, your third eye may be opening. 

You may begin to notice auras

Auras are energy fields that surround the body. An aura can be made up of different colors, each of which has its own significance. For example, a red aura could indicate that someone is full of passion. Likewise, a white aura can mean a number of things including that someone is near death.  When your third eye begins to open, you may notice that you start to see auras around people, or you may simply start seeing colors around people (that aren’t visible to everyone else).

You may start to have more hunches — and they turn out to be right

One of the best things about an open third eye is that you’re likely to experience heightened psychic accuracy. You may have more psychic hunches that turn out to be right. You might know something is going to happen and then see it play out just as you knew it would. While it can be unsettling to sense something before it happens, it can be extremely beneficial to your life to have this ability. With an open third eye, you can make better decisions, avoid dangers and tap into spiritual knowledge to move forward toward your dreams. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
