This is the telling of an episode that doesn’t happen every day, or to everyone. This is the story of Reema’s Third Eye Chakra.
On one usual morning, Reema got up in a panic. Sweating profusely, she tried to adjust her eyes to the darkness around her. Calming her uneven breathing, she tried to figure out what had her feeling tormented. And then she remembered – the dream. It had been coming to her since childhood.
The temple, the idols, the chants, running feet chasing her. The Terror…She knew that the chase ended in her death. The last faces she saw were of men wearing uniforms. She also realized why in this life she also fears authority.
Dreams like these are not random. I am sure you have encountered recurring dreams or dreams that have a certain pattern.
You may also wonder what they are trying to tell you. Dreams and some other awakening signs symbolize the opening of the Third Eye Chakra.
If you are wondering what is the Third Eye Chakra, then it is the sixth chakra or the energy point which is very crucial in our lives. Located between the eyebrows, it is the seat of intuition and psychic abilities.
The function of this chakra is to help you sharpen your foresight. The more open the 3rd eye is, the stronger your intuition is. The color of this chakra is blueish purple and the symbol is an upside-down triangle and the lotus flower.
Signs That Your Third Eye Chakra May Be Blocked
- Lack of clarity
- Feeling stuck in life and not being able to see beyond the day-to-day problems, not having a vision for your life
- Rejection of everything that is spiritual
- Not being able to see the bigger picture
- Unexplained headaches and migraine
- Not believing in intuition, always relying on logic
Why Does The Third Eye Chakra Get Blocked?
The 3rd eye in all of us is completely open when we are born. That is why you will notice that children are far more intuitive than adults.
As children, you trust your gut or intuition. However, as you grow up, you learn about fear. You want to see everything with proof and logic.
You are told to believe what you see. So, you start to push away that “inner voice” or intuition away. Sadly, there starts the blockage of this chakra.
Signs That Your Third Eye Chakra Is Opening
1. Increased Intuition
You will start having visions of things even before they happen. For many people, this ability opened in their childhood. For others, it can be a gradual process.
Whatever it may be for you, please start believing in your intuition. Strengthening this muscle will help you get more messages. Many people can predict death beforehand.
If you are one of them, then know that you are gifted and that this chakra is open for you. See how you can ascend faster on this journey by opening your energies further.
2. You Start To See The Bigger Picture
As your third eye starts to open, you start to understand your purpose in this life. Your lessons about why are you here, and what you need to do to move forward in your spiritual journey become clearer.
You are no longer stuck only in the day-to-day but can hold a clear vision of how life will look in the coming years.
3. Pressure On Your Head/ Between The Eyebrows
A tingling sensation, a headache, sometimes a feeling like ants crawling- these are all normal. Sometimes, this could start when you are in deep meditation, at other times, this could be when you encounter someone with who you have a lesson to learn.
Familiar places, a sense of déjà vu, a symbol, an unexpected set of events, dreams- they can all trigger this pressure between the brows.
If you experience this and feel uncomfortable, try going out for a walk or having a saltwater bath. This should help.
4. Vivid Dreams
Dreams are the Universe’s way of reminding you about what is going on in your subconscious mind. Many times, you dream of your past lives.
These dreams either show you a pattern that you need to break, or they point you in the direction of what you need to know to move forward. You could be stuck in many lives with indecision for example, or you may be too trusting.
You could have deep-seated phobias in this life (like fear of water, heights, or closed spaces) that may be related to past lives.
Seeing those in your dreams gives you the courage to overcome them. Opening the third eye will bring to the surface all issues of fear so that you can work on it and move on.
5. A Feeling Of Being Detached
As this chakra opens, you start to see the unity in everything. You start to believe that there is one supreme source, and you are part of that.
The law of Divine Oneness starts to sink in. This makes you feel a little lonely at first, as you feel disconnected from people. You may see friends drifting away from your life. Know that this is normal, and you will soon attract a new tribe.
Handling Symptoms Of The Opening Of The Third Eye Chakra
- Take walks in nature.
- Meditate with a purple crystal like Amethyst or Purple Tourmaline.
- Have a saltwater bath if the energy is overwhelming.
- Connect to your Spirit Guides for clear answers.
- Your body needs more rest at this time. Ensure you have 8 hours of sleep.
- Aromatherapy can help. Massage with lavender, peppermint, and rosemary oil.
- Automatic Writing can help you take this journey further.
