People who know how to do third eye meditation technique have advanced levels of insight and clairvoyance. That’s because it is one of the very best psychic meditations.
In this guide I will show you how to do the method and the benefits you will get from doing it.
But first of all, what is third eye meditation technique?
It’s an exercise for opening the sixth chakra (Ajna), which lies between the eyebrows, just a pinch up from the nose. This is the seat of your spiritual self. In Hindu and Tantra Yoga systems it is believed that the third eye [ajna chakra] radiates light and receives insight from the universe. Hence why opening this chakra can help you tap into your latent psychic powers.
But there is a problem.
Your ajna chakra can get blocked by many things. In fact, all seven chakras can be either open or blocked. And it is vital to spiritual health that they stay open and activated.
There are different ways to meditate on all the different chakras, and the best exercise for the ajna chakra is Third Eye Meditation technique. This is such an important method that I chose to include it in my guide to the best types of meditation in yoga.
Benefits Of Opening The Third Eye
The ajna chakra is the power that unlocks our insight and intuition. When it is open, we awaken our psychic insight.
Have you ever felt moments of intuitive wisdom, when you knew something important even though you weren’t sure how you knew?
Maybe you sensed someone was in pain. Or you felt a voice calling you though you couldn’t see anyone. Or you felt a warning inside your self.
These are moments of insight that give you vital information you need to know.
Such insight comes from the ajna chakra (third eye). That’s why the primary benefit of third eye meditation is unlocking insight and intuition [you can also use yoga for insight and intuition].
The third eye, or pineal gland, is the source of extrasensory information, or ”sixth sense”.
Breaking scientific research shows that the quantum theory is accurate (we are all interconnected) and this gives evidence to the validity of the third eye chakra.
Unfortunately, most people’s ajna chakra is calcified and not open. The key to opening it is with spiritual practices, such as a combination of meditation and yoga, and in particular Third Eye Meditation. Doing this method relaxes the mind and unleashes the psychic powers within.
Let me show you how to do it.
How To Open The Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra

Of these, the best method is using Third Eye Meditation technique.
Third Eye Meditation Benefits
Take a look at this list of 100 benefits of meditation.
Meditation is amazing for our health. Third Eye Meditation shares most of the common benefits of meditation, such as relaxation and enhanced cognitive performance, but it also has its own unique benefits, which are associated with the ajna chakra.
Third Eye Meditation helps us to perceive the world outside of the trappings of the mind. And it promotes calmness and relaxation.
A friend of mine currently studying for a masters degree in spiritual psychology states that Third Eye Meditation is in the top five most beneficial meditation techniques for mental health–so it’s definitely worth spending at least 15 minutes a day practicing it.
Benefits of the Third Eye Meditation include:
- 1. The third eye meditation technique helps to treat anxiety and depression by making us more aware of our thoughts
- 2. It helps us to understand people. This is why online psychics use this meditation technique all the time.
- 3. It helps with business as it promotes deeper understanding of reality.
- 4. It helps your relationships as it allows you to understand others better.
Why Your Ajna Chakra Is Blocked
Do you work shifts leave you feeling tired and irritable? If so, you need to be aware of the latest research. Your work shifts might be destroying your third eye.
We all know those people who handle shift work with ease. But for some of us, shift work is a nightmare. It feels like a constant disruption in your rhythm. It makes you feel like you can’t get grounded.
Personally, when I finish a night shift the sun feels like its burning my retinas out, and I’m so confused, time-wise, that I don’t know whether to grab breakfast or hit the sack (I usually end up snuggling my cat and bemoaning my work-life).
But there’s good news. Research is currently surfacing. It shows that there is a genetic reason why some people can handle shift work where others can’t. Finnish researchers have found that a melatonin receptor gene influences tolerance to shift work.
This is the first time genetic factors have been taken into account when considering why some people cannot handle shift work. The study showed that a common variation in the melatonin receptor 1A gene is linked to job-related exhaustion by shift workers.
So what does that mean if, like me, you cannot handle shift work? Simple. It means you need to find a new job.
There is very little you can do to make shift work bearable. Either shift work suits you or it doesn’t.
And if shift work does not suit you, it might be very bad for your health. And particularly, for your ajna chakra.
Shift work disrupts the circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is a 24-hour cycle that tells our bodies when to sleep and regulates many other physiological processes. This internal body clock is affected by environmental cues, like sunlight and temperature.
The circadian rhythm is produced by the third eye, one of the most important parts of the body, spiritually speaking. The third eye is the seat of insight and wisdom.
Night shifts interrupt the normal functioning of the third eye and therefore disrupt your spiritual awakening and your insight and intuition. Yet another reason to consider changing your job and going off of night shifts.
The research, that was conducted by Professor Tiina Paunio, showed that some shift workers suffer from chronic exhaustion, which can cause serious health complications.
