In this tutorial, we will be looking at the third eye meditation script, used to open Ajna chakra, it’s benefits, and other ways to open the third eye chakra. It is one of the methods I teach in my online meditation lessons.

Benefits of this technique include increased insight and intuition, and the development of psychic powers [READ: Develop Psychic Abilities Through Meditation]. 

What Is The Ajna Chakra / Third Eye Meditation Script?

The Third Eye Meditation script is a form of chakra meditation [READ: Chakra Dhyana For Beginners].

It is used to open the Ajna chakra, or “third eye”. Intuition and insight naturally increase when we do this. 

The third eye is the pineal gland located in the centre of the brain. Rene Descartes once called it the location of the soul. The pineal gland contains cells called pinealocyte that produce melatonin that help with the secretion of melatonin, which is important for the circadian rhythm. It also contains glial cells that support neurons.  The circadian rhythm is vital because it controls our internal clock, telling us when to sleep and when to be active.   

Researchers believe, however, that the benefits of the third eye / pineal gland go further than this.  The Ajna Chakra has been linked to many aspects of health, including metabolism, depression related to sleep, sense of direction, mood, and potentially the various functions related to the hypothalamus (such as thyroid function and hormonal functions).  One study also related the pineal gland to drug addition [Francesco Crespi (2018) The Pineal Hypothesis for Drug Dependence. International Physiology Journal – 2(1):3-8.]   

Although there is no proof, ancient texts state that we can meditate to open the third eye pineal gland.

The Third Eye meditation script is a practice used in Taoism and numerous Chinese religions, including Chan Buddhism.  In these religions, the “sixth chakra” (Ajna) is considered one of the most important elements of spiritual awakening. Some Christian teachers, including Richard Roar, have also discussed the benefits of the third eye meditation technique, as have some theologists, including Charles Webster Leadbeater, and H. P. Blavatsky and his adherents. Rick Strassman [American clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine] called the Third Eye the “Spirit Molecule”, such was the power he saw in it. 

The most common problem is that we don’t have an open third eye. Rather, it is closed or calcified.  This is why we need to use meditation for third eye opening.  

Meditation, of course, is the psychological practice of focusing the mind on the present moment. Stemming from a combination of Hinduism, tantra, yoga, and Buddhism, meditation is about mindfully observing the present moment. It helps with stress, anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, and yes, you can meditate to open the third eye.

There is a direct link between meditation and the third eye. Ajna Chakra meditation relaxes the mind to open us to the intuition of the third eye according to The Chopra Center. [1] and can even lead to clairvoyance and latent psychic powers.  

There are many reasons why people don’t have an open third eye. They include stress and fatigue. A blocked Ajna chakra can impede your psychic abilities and could cause mental health complications. Thankfully, we can use the Third eye meditation technique to reduce stress and reopen the chakra.

I should mention that you don’t actually need to meditate to open the Ajna chakra. Gemstones help too, well as mantras, mudra, and other methods. However, the fastest way to open the third eye is meditation.

Pineal gland activation will lead to many benefits. So let’s look at how to do it.

More ways To Open The Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra Without Meditation

Now that we have looked at the third eye meditation technique, here are some methods that do not require meditating.

Of these, the best method is using the Third Eye Meditation technique.

Benefits of the Third Eye Meditation Script & Ajna Chakra

There are many benefits of opening the Ajna chakra.

Meditation is the fastest way to gain access to the insight and intuition located in your pineal gland. When we open the third eye with meditation, we awaken our insight [READ: Meditation For Insight And Intuition]

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 the 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 script is unlocking insight and intuition. 

The Ajna chakra, or pineal gland, is the source of extrasensory information, or “sixth sense”.

Breaking scientific research suggests that the quantum field theory is accurate (we are all interconnected), and this gives evidence to the validity of the Ajna chakra. Unfortunately, most people do not have open third eyes and so they do not gain access to insight or intuition 

The key to opening the third eye is with spiritual practices, such as a combination of meditation and yoga, and in particular the Third Eye Meditation technique that we looked at above. Doing this method relaxes the mind and unleashes the psychic powers within. When you do this, you will access your third eye intuition.

Third Eye Meditation technique shares most of the common benefits of meditation, such as relaxation and enhanced cognitive performance. It also has unique benefits, which are associated with the Ajna chakra. Benefits include spiritual awakening and the cultivation of psychic powers. Specifically, third eye meditation benefits us by helping us to perceive the world outside of the trappings of the mind.
