Third Eye Meditation Technique–How To Activate Your Ajna Chakra [TUTORIAL]
People who know how to do third eye meditation technique have advanced levels of insight and clairvoyance.
The third eye meditation technique is an exercise for the sixth chakra (Ajna), which lies between the eyebrows, just a pinch up from the nose.
In Hindu and Tantra Yoga systems it is believed that the third eye radiates light and receives insight from the universe.
But there is a problem.
Your third eye can get blocked by many things. Even your work shifts can destroy your third eye (read below).
In fact, all seven chakras can be either open or blocked. And it is vital to spiritual health that they stay open and activated.
One way to open the third eye chakra is with meditation. Third Eye meditation is actually one of the most important types of meditation in yoga.
Benefits Of Opening The Third Eye
The third eye chakra (ajna) is our powerful way of accessing insight. When it is open, we awaken our psychic insight.
Have you ever felt moments of intuitive wisdom, where you know something important even though you weren’t sure how you knew?
Maybe you senses someone was in pain. Or you felt a voice calling you though you couldn’t seen anyone. Or you felt a warning sigh 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).
There are many benefits of opening the third eye chakra.
The third eye, 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.
Problem is most people’s third eyes are calcified and not open. They need to be awakened.
We can use meditation to open the third eye. And when we do, we gain access to intuition and clairvoyance
When we meditate we alter consciousness and improve our intuition.
When we are stress-free and completely relaxed and at peace, we awaken the mind to its true power.
Then, we find higher self awareness, higher consciousness, and self mastery.

One Reason Your Third Eye Is Blocked
Do your 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.
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.
