🌙 Written by Stefan Zugor, international lucid dreaming expert and teacher. Learn how to lucid dream in 7 days or less.

Are you wondering what are the signs that your third eye is open?

It has been said that your third eye increases your intuition and opens the door to your psychic and telepathic abilities.

It’s not that you’ll suddenly see scary ghosts like in the movies.

So don’t think that you need to see ghosts or foresee future tragedies to know that your third eye is open.

It might already be open and you just don’t know because you don’t know the signs to look out for. 

It can be confusing if you don’t have much information about this but it’s very exciting if you do know.

Have you been having more lucid dreams? Have you been having frequent headaches?

Could these be signs that your third eye is already open?

Let’s find out!

Signs Your Third Eye Is Open

In the movies, the third eye chakra gets a bad rap. If it’s a third eye movie, then it’s probably a horror movie.

When a character’s third eye is open, they start to see scary ghosts that they’d rather not see or future negative events that they’d rather to have known.

But what really happens when the third eye is open? Would you see ghosts and future tragedies? 

What Are The Signs That My Third Eye Is Open?

In total, I have listed 10 things that you will experience that indicate that your third eye is open. The list includes having more lucid dreams, increasing intuition, frequent headaches, and more.

We will discuss all 10 signs but in the meantime, let’s talk about the third eye chakra. What is is, what does it do, and what happens when it’s not balanced?

10 CLEAR Signs Your Third Eye Is OPEN

What Is The Third Eye

The third eye chakra is said to be associated with imagination, clarity, intuition, concentration, and spiritual perception.

This chakra is also said to be connected to the pineal gland.

The pineal gland is a pea-sized gland shaped like a pine cone that is found in the brain near the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. It is regarded as the organ of the highest global connection and is a beloved tool of seers and mystics.

It’s been said that the pineal gland is important in most civilizations across the world.

The Ajna chakra represents the third eye in Ayurvedic philosophy. The Eye of Horus sign in Ancient Egypt mirrored the position of the pineal gland on the profile of the human skull.

According to a 2019 scientific review, studies reveal a relationship between the pineal gland and DMT.

Because of its alleged connection to awareness, this chemical is often known as “the spirit molecule” or “the seat of the soul.”

What Does The Third Eye Do

You feel directed, intuitive, and free when the third eye chakra is healed and activated.

“Clairvoyance, visions, and extrasensory awareness are all possible while the third eye is open.”

Messages from higher awareness or the spiritual realm are conveyed to you through your subconscious. You will be ignorant of these signals unless you have an open third eye.

The third eye is a gateway to the subconscious that allows you to communicate with and receive messages and information from higher consciousness and other levels of awareness.

This information or knowledge is provided to you for the benefit of your personal and spiritual development, as well as the advancement of others.

Third eye awakening helps us to notice our own blind spots and have a better understanding of ourselves.

Before we can make use of the third eye to see beyond, we first must use it to view ourselves.

What If You Have An Unbalanced Third Eye Chakra

When your third eye chakra is unbalanced, there’s a separation from spirituality.

The separation from spirituality clouds our intuition. It causes impatience, expectations, burdens from the past, and a slew of other negative thoughts to cloud our perception.

Other third eye chakra imbalance symptoms include indecision, confusion, a lack of concentration, purpose, and pessimism. With self-doubt and narrow-mindedness, achieving your goals become even tougher.

This is what usually happens in the modern world. A lot of people’s third eye chakras are blocked.

What could also happen is that the chakra can be overactive. It’s so not common in the modern world but there are rare cases when people experience this.

An overactive third eye chakra causes overpowering sensations. Instances of paranormal experiences boost psychic activity. This can also result in hallucinations and full disconnection from reality.

Some overactive third eye chakra symptoms impact the neurons of the brain, resulting in issues such as:

Headache, eye issues, migraine, brain disorders, trouble sleeping, pituitary, and pineal gland dysfunction, as well as hypothalamic dysfunction

10 Signs Your Third Eye Is Open

So what happens when your third eye is already open? You experience unusual things.

I have listed 10 things that you will experience when your third eye is open. These things are pretty interesting and you probably haven’t heard of them before. 

1: You Experience Headaches

If you experience frequent headaches and you don’t really know why, that is a pretty good chance that your third eye is open and you will be unlocking more of your gifts as time goes on. 

This is one of the most common symptoms of an open third eye chakra. Energy runs from the pineal gland via the back of your skull, which may cause regular headaches.

2: Your Intuition Is Increasing

If your intuition has been randomly increasing lately and you don’t really know why this is a very powerful sign that your third eye is open or at least going to become more open as time goes on. 

Maybe you felt an off vibe from a person and that person turns out to be bad news? Or maybe you declined an offer because your gut is telling you that something better is going to come along and it did?

3: You Experience Telepathy

This is a bit harder to define. If you are experiencing telepathic abilities, for example, if you sometimes randomly seem to know what people around you are thinking and you don’t know how you know. 

You may also sense when someone is thinking about you, and you may eventually learn how to transmit telepathic messages.

That’s a sign that your telepathic ability is getting stronger and it’s also a sign that your third eye is open. 

4: You Feel A Tingling Between Your Eyebrows

The fourth sign that your third eye might be open is if you sometimes feel a slight tingling in the center of your forehead or literally between and slightly above both of your eyes. 

The third eye chakra, often known as the ‘pineal gland,’ is positioned between the brows.

When you activate your third eye, energy pours into it, generating tingling or pressure in that location.

This is a very powerful sign that your third eye or pineal gland is open and you should not ignore that one. 

5: You Are Becoming Clairvoyant

The next sign that your third eye is open is that you are becoming more clairvoyant. This is very powerful. 

What do you see when your 3rd eye opens?

The third eye perceives the future, whereas the physical eye sees the past and present.

You may see visions of future events or feel warning signs about a place or event.

By the way, just a quick note here. If you want to know exactly whether your third eye is open and what your spiritual gifts are, I found an interesting, scarily accurate, and completely free reading

6: You’re Having Lucid Dreams

Your third might be open if you are experiencing lots of more random lucid dreams. 

So you may or may not know that my other channel is called Lucid dreaming Experience.

I talk all about lucid dreaming which is one of my main passions and topics that I talk about. 

So if you’re experiencing lots more random and vivid lucid dreams, this is a powerful sign that your third eye is open. 

So have you actually found that yourself? Have you recently had more than the usual amount of vivid dreams or lucid dreams? 

Let me know in the comments.

7: You’re More Conscious Of What You Eat

This is something that I think lots of people are experiencing. You become more conscious and aware of the food you are eating. 

You no longer want to be cramming twinkies down your throat or drinking heavy chocolate milkshakes from fast food restaurants. 

Instead, you want to focus or you find yourself focusing more on how you can get cleaner with your diet.

“How can I have more healthy foods, more whole foods that are actually going to improve my body, help me build muscle, or help me maintain energy?”

Suddenly the foods that are just going to add fat, toxins, and inflammation to your body aren’t very appealing.

8: Synchronicities

Number eight is that you start noticing various synchronicities, signs, and messages when your third eye starts to open. 

These messages and signs might be things like angel numbers. It might be that a song that means a lot to you starts playing at certain times. 

It might be that a certain person messages you when you are thinking about them. 

These signs and synchronicities are very powerful signs that your third eye is opening.

9: You’re More Sensitive To Light And Sound

I’m curious if you’ve experienced this one. Have you noticed that you’re more sensitive to light and sound? This could be music or maybe sounds in the street. 

If you have noticed that you’re getting more sensitive to lights and sounds, It’s a very strong sign that your third eye or your pineal gland is opening. 

Places with bright lighting or loud music may turn you off. You can also start hearing things you didn’t notice previously.
This means you’re getting more synced with both the spiritual and physical realms.

Let me know in the comments if that’s happened to you. 

10: You’re Seeking A Higher Life Purpose

The final sign that your third eye may be open is that you find yourself seeking a higher life purpose mission.

This could be something that you’ve been thinking about for a while. 

It could be something from your childhood that you know you enjoy, but you’ve put it off for a while because life’s gotten in the way.

But if you’ve found yourself recently wanting to do more of the things that you truly enjoy, something that is connected to your passion or your mission, this is a strong sign of third eye-opening.

You’re literally having that connection between yourself and your higher self which means you’d get instant downloads. 

You know you are guided more into the direction you should be going. The message has become very strong, so it’s hard to ignore.

One of the reasons that the audio team made this package called shifting vibrations is that we wanted to help people raise their vibrations and frequency. This helps them be more in touch with their higher self and their purpose. 

This is one of the most powerful ways we’ve been able to do this. It’s by including these audios in a fractal way so that you can raise your vibrations very, very quickly.

So if you want to listen to some free examples of those, I’ve actually put it all together in the link above. I guarantee you will feel an effect from listening to the audio in the first 90 seconds or less.

What Is A Pineal Gland Calcification?

Pineal gland calcification is when calcium spots build up around the pineal gland. It can affect the gland’s capacity to release melatonin and is said to cause chakra blockage.

To decalcify this, people go fluoride-free and change their diets and lifestyle such as eating more organic, unprocessed foods.
