If you are looking to make a connection with the higher self and you want to develop greater awareness, the opening of the third eye will help in both endeavors. For some individuals, the third eye opens on its own and no extra effort is necessary. For others, there is some work that lies ahead. The work is well worth it.
Once the third eye opens, you will be able to communicate with the Higher Self with more clarity than ever before. The Higher Self will provide you with an endless amount of intuitive insight and universal wisdom. All the latter benefits are for your use: You can use the wisdom and insights for improving your life and the life of others. So how can you tell when you’ve been successful in getting the third eye to open?
1. You are Discovering a Sensitivity to Both Light and Sound.
The physical world becomes a far more vivid place. Colors are richer and lights are brighter. This is a temporary effect of opening the third eye. If the effects are irritating, you can meditate on the third eye. After one or more meditation sessions, the effect should reduce, if not disappear altogether. You might still have a sensitivity to excessive bright light, however.
In a similar vein, you’ll develop sound sensitivity. There may be specific sounds that become annoying. You might not be able to take overstimulation when it comes to sound. You may even discover the type of tunes you listen to changes. At the same time, you can become even more responsive to music, especially on an emotional level.
2. You Notice a Sensation Between the Brows that Feels Like Slight Pressure.
The third eye is in between both the eyes and slightly above the brow. This area may become sensitive to the touch. You might feel like something is touching you or as if there is some pressure at that point on your brow. The sensation may be intermittent as it occurs at random and fades away. The sensation is one that many people share once the third eye opens.
3. You Have Dramatically Changed Your Life Perspective and the Way You Think About Things.
Your thoughts become clear and you release old thinking patterns. You may begin to question the superficiality and illusory nature of reality, media, and society. We enter the journey of the Hermit where we go within seeking our personal truth, meaning for life, and the direction you are taking in your life. Things you once found entertaining may seem superficial and shallow. Your new perspective will have you craving a meaningful life with authentic experiences.
4. Your Ability to Intuitively Know Things Increases.
If you’ve had some extrasensory perception before the third eye opens, this will intensify the talents you have! If you didn’t have any active extra sensory abilities, with the third eye open you’ll find your innate psychic abilities also awaken. You will soon start to know things without knowing how you have such information. You might develop other skills as well, including clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairgustance, clairsentience, or clairolfactory skills. Your intuitive information flow from Spirit will increase as well.
5. You Notice Changes in Your Appetite and the Foods You Desire.
With the third eye opening, you are starting to experience a psychic awakening. Through the awakening process, you will undergo changes. Such changes include the desire to eat better. It is often the goal to improve one’s well-being overall. You will crave foods that will help you heal and stay at the state of optimal health. Those foods and drinks that are toxic to you might become unappealing.
It’s true you will undergo many changes once the third eye opens. The changes you endure will have a powerful effect on you as it will improve your life and the way you live. To ensure you keep well balanced during the transition from your old self to the Awakened One, make sure you take time to meditate, reconnect with nature, and to hydrate yourself. Get plenty of rest each day as well. As you note the changes you are going through, go with the flow, and don’t fight the changes. They are to your benefit.
