11 Signs your Third Eye is Opening

by Alexandra Tiodar

The third eye is an esoteric concept that was first used in the Dharmic Spiritual traditions of India, being later mentioned in Buddhism and Hinduism as a key component of our energetic bodies.

The Third Eye is said to be a gateway between the human beings and the spiritual realm, which, when opened, gives access to a state of higher consciousness.

It is located in the Ajna Chakra (also known as “The Brow Chakra”) which is situated in the middle of the forehead.

People whose Third Eye has opened are known as “seers”, due to the fact that they are able to see the subtle plans of reality, observing auras, chakras and spiritual entities around us.

The Third eye governs certain organs such as the Pineal Gland, the base of the brain and third ventricle and it also facilitates spiritual insights and the distribution of Prana (Divine Energy) in the other parts of the body.

It is said that an open Third Eye will make the person wiser and more in tune with the Universe’s plan, as well as increase intuition, telepathic and psychic abilities. 

The Third Eye usually opens when the person is ready to step on his’ or hers’ spiritual path, and trust me, the Universe has a plan about this moment.

Everything happens exactly at the right time.

Have you been experiencing any funny changes in your body and in the way you perceive life lately?

Take a look at these 11 signs that your Third Eye is opening in order to be aware if this is happening to you.


Sign #1: A feeling of slight pressure between the eyebrows

This is the first sign that your Third Eye is opening.

You will experience a constant feeling of pressure in the middle of your forehead where the Ajna Chakra is situated, similar to a light touch.

It may be confusing at first, especially when the feeling of pressure becomes stronger, as if someone was touching you, but there is no reason to worry.

You are not imagining it or going crazy, you are just in the process of your Third Eye opening.

Sign #2: Frequent headaches

As the Third Eye is opening you may experience headaches quite often – at first they might happen from time to time and can be rather mild, but gradually they will increase in both frequency and intensity.

This is due to the fact that your Kundalini energy is trying to activate the final stages of opening up your Third Eye.

During this time your kundalini energy is rising and building up near your pineal gland and Third Eye Chakra.

The Kundalini Energy is our Spirit Energy – that part of us which is reincarnating from one life to another and is usually located at the base of your spine.

When the spiritual awakening starts to happen, this energy proceeds on its way up to your spine, activating your chakras one by one.

Therefore, when your Third Eye is opening it means you are quite far on your way to being fully awakened and your Kundalini Energy will take its place in your Third Eye Chakra.

These headaches are nothing to worry about and they can be soothed through meditation and by using any energetic healing method such as Reiki.

Sign #3: Increased intuition

You might be used to having a powerful intuition, but when your Third Eye is opening it will reach a whole new level.

You will almost always know what people around you are going to say, how they feel, who is going to call you next or what is going to happen.

Your Intuition is going to guide you towards taking the right actions and meeting the right people which are meant to help you evolve on your spiritual path.

Sign #4: You are acquiring telepathic abilities

Suddenly you will realize that you know what another person is thinking, and they will probably confirm it through their actions and words.

You can also sense when someone is thinking about you and usually events will unfold in such way that you will also have proof that you were right.

For example,

You may sense that your friend is thinking about you (usually when this happens you can also see their image in the back of your mind) and a few hours later they will call you saying “I have been thinking about you the whole day!”.

Also, other people may sense that you are thinking about them and feel the urge to contact you all of a sudden.

When you know how, you can even give them “a telepathic shout”.

At first, these things may scare you a bit, but you will get used to them and start to use your telepathic abilities to your advantage.

Sign #5: You become clairvoyant

Before an important event will take place, whether it is positive or negative, you are going to sense its imminence, or even have flashes with images depicting that certain event.

In that way, you may be warned in order to avoid going to certain places where something catastrophic will happen or you can be drawn to attend certain events that will have a positive impact on you.

It is very important that you take these visions seriously because they are meant to keep you and your actions within the Divine Plan.

When you don’t trust in what is being shown to you, you may lose your gift.

Sign #6: Frequent lucid and vivid dreams

Your dreams will become more clear than ever and they will contain messages from your Angels and Spirit Guides.

These dreams will can be about certain events from the past that need to be resolved and emotional pains that need to be healed in order for you to more forward, or messages about what the future holds in store for you.

Either way, it is best to take action after each dream.

When an unresolved problem comes up try to meditate upon it, see how it makes you feel, who you need to forgive or what conversations you need to have in order to resolve it.

When your dream is about people you are going to meet or about events that are going to happen, try to facilitate those events by going in the indicated places or look for the indicated person.

Sign #7: You become more conscious of what you are eating  

Food is energy and it has a certain vibration and information attached to it.

When your Third Eye is opening, you become more sensitive to these vibrations.

Your body will go through a process of rebalancing and readjusting its’ vibration. Therefore, there will appear sudden changes in the way you are eating.

For example, you may struggle with eating meat, as you might feel the fear and pain that the animal felt before being killed.

Another change that can occur is that you might feel the need to eat more natural, non-processed food.

You can resort to growing your own vegetables or buying them from a farmer rather than from a supermarket.

This will be your body’s way of filtering out foods that cause damage to your body on a physical and energetic level, while forcing you to choose foods that nourish you and raise your vibration.

Sign #8: You start noticing all the synchronicities in your life

Even though synchronicities have always been a part of our lives, they might be hard to spot for a person who is not spiritually awakened.

Often they are just interpreted as mere coincidences.

But when your third eye is opening, you will understand that there is no such thing as coincidences, because the Universe always has a plan that will unfold in a certain way.

You start understanding that certain people appear in your life or certain events happen exactly at the right time in order to guide you on your spiritual path.

Once you have commenced your spiritual journey, you will be aware of these synchronicities and you will understand their meaning.

Synchronicities are meant to give you a deeper understanding of life and show you that everything happens in accordance with the divine plan and for your greater good.

Sign #9: Increased light and sound sensitivity

Once your Third Eye has started to open, you become more sensitive to lights and sounds.

Therefore, you might have to avoid places with very loud music or very bright lights because you might have a hard time tolerating them.

Also, you might see some colors appearing brighter than before or you will be able to see a broader range of colors than you were ever able to see.

This is due to the fact that your consciousness is expanding and you are able to see more both in the physical and spiritual realm.

Sign #10: Seeing lights, geometric shapes, and patterns when your eyes are closed

If you close your eyes and look upwards, you are most likely to see powerful lights and all sorts of geometric shapes and intricate patterns.

The most common colors people see are blue, indigo and white.

These lights and images will change constantly and new, fascinating patterns will appear, usually preventing you from falling asleep easily.

You might get distracted watching them or they might just impair your ability to fall asleep because the human brain needs darkness in order to disconnect from the state of wakefulness.

Sign #11: Seeking a higher life purpose

With all the synchronicities that you start to notice and increased intuition, telepathic and clairvoyant abilities, you also begin to feel the need for a more meaningful life.

You will suddenly feel the urge to create a life in which you are connected to your highest purpose.

All souls are incarnated on earth with a divine mission, and the older the soul, the higher the calling. Only very old souls will experience the opening of their Third Eye in their present life.

The fact that your Third Eye is opening is also a sign that you shouldn’t ignore your true calling and your divine mission anymore, and your whole being will prompt you to start making changes.

Therefore, you will try to establish more meaningful relationships and will feel the urge the devote your time to what really matters to you.

For example, if you had always felt that your real calling is to be a writer, now you will feel the urge to finally take action in that direction.

You will be drawn to activities and jobs through which you can have a positive impact on society and make a real change, whether that implies changing your career or devoting your spare time to helping those less fortunate.

Jonah April 22, 2021 - 7:07 pm

I’m pretty sure this is somewhat of what I am experiencing. I don’t even know anything about this kind of stuff, but I have very strange dreams. In the dreams that are more then dreams I leave my body alot and go places or even go into other people’s bodies, or animals. I also go places that don’t exist here on this plane of existence, but feel very real. These dreams are very different then regular sleep dreams. I also usually know I’m sleeping and dreaming but am also experiencing what I am. I have also talked with beings that have power, and fought with some. Some have tried to hurt or take me, also I have been doing these things since I was a child. It stared with floating around my room as a child when I was sleeping. Also when I’m dreaming these I feel an intense pain in my forehead, and a very strange sensation. The only way I can explain it, is as another eye is open inside my head, one that won’t close when I sometimes want it to. I tell myself while in a half sleep stage close my ineer eye, go to sleep. Because I’m not resting. I will sometimes wake up when having these dreams and headaches and the eye feeling will still be there and I will see things in my room that are not there. For example I have seen purple gellyfiish on my ceeling floating for a second. I have seen a big floating eye starting at me. As I said I have never even been into these things it has just happened to me since I was a child. I have ignored it my whole life. Chalking it up to an active imagination, but I’m not so sure anymore?…

Rashid August 24, 2021 - 5:21 pm

I been experiencing that for years now

j May 25, 2020 - 3:34 am

In my 3rd eye I see shifting colors and patterns. At times I feel as if I get a glimpse of a tapestry or painting. Sometimes it is a lighter shade of green with figures/symbols on them that eventually move. I connect with all the signs you list above along with spirit guides and ancestors. I have been practicing my medium skills with others with success. At times I feel as if I am in the middle of all the colors. I was told by a breathworker I should try to breath in the colors. Trying to trust the flow with all this. Will more evolve with what I am seeing or is this my own way to entertain myself : )

Mahesh kumar May 25, 2020 - 9:13 pm

How do you open your third eye?

Peggy September 5, 2020 - 5:13 pm

Rishis and yogis do kundalini yoga – Which opens the third eye and can awaken kundalini. Incorporate bandhas,, Kriyas and mantras within a devoted, daily meditation practice as well as, studying spiritual knowledge and purifying the mind and body will help.

Crystal June 23, 2020 - 2:16 pm

Thank you for explaining this I have been experiencing all of these especially the more intense and frequent headaches right between my eye brows and over my eyebrows. I had tried almost everything to get the pain to subside but couldn’t find relief so I tried meditating more and it has been helpful for bits of relief. I was also very nervous and afraid of my third eye chakra opening but now I’m not I feel like this is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.

Adhira Gayaparsad June 27, 2020 - 9:45 pm

I guess ! that I ain’t crazy after all . I see the these shapes , patterns , colours but mostly the purple which is so beautiful , images of faces as well ! Some of these images of faces and people are unknow to me . I see particles floating in there air which are actually microscopic . Would you please assist me in understanding all of the above ?

Brian Worsley July 6, 2020 - 8:23 pm

Its amazing how this all fell into place, I’ve always had a connection to the band tool for years was drawn to certain songs didn’t even know why I liked it so much, why the songs spoke to me differently.. (third eye, parabola, lateralus, reflection, 46&2) along that journey was also drawn to books with philosophical aspects especially carl jung.. and how out of the blue can
all of a sudden understand it to a certain degree, it gives me a little giggle feeling, the excited first stage of a laugh!! Thank you, I love how also this article just found me today.. lol

Malik hunter July 25, 2020 - 10:23 pm

I am 15 and I think that my third eye is opening or already is, I have seen shapes when I close my eyes, I have a good sense of intuition for example I have went to my moms therapy session and I sat there for a good hour by myself and then I had a sense that told me she’s coming and she came another one is I was on the bus something told me to move and then a car crash happened at the end of my block it was very close to where I was sitting at the front.also I’ve had lucid dreams and once had a OBE I’m pretty sure my third eye is open I’ve also been through traumatizing things pls tell me what I should do from here on I’ve also been getting tingles in the middle of my forehead. Pls tell me what I should do.

Francis Skinn August 21, 2020 - 11:56 pm

Happy i read this article, I thought i was going insane thank you 😊

Casper August 22, 2020 - 9:14 pm

I have began to experience very frequent headaches and migraines gradually over the last year or so that are difficult to treat. I also have become aware of changing colors and shapes with my eyes closed, particularly when I listen to music. I also have been have very vivid and occasionally partial lucid dreaming. Additionally, I feel as though I have changed in the shortest amount of time in my life and have become happier and more motivated to get closer to my full potential. Is it possible that all of these separate parts of my life are connected by my third eye?

Amanda Roberts August 25, 2020 - 7:04 am

Wow! Interesting stuff, I’ve been experiencing some clairvoyant abilities and trying to figure out more on this topic. Thanks for sharing your information

Peggy September 5, 2020 - 4:38 pm

Thank you so much for this article. I have been doing several Kriyas, mantras, and other Kundalini awakening practices and have begun to have much more vivid dreams. However, I sought out this topic because some other Symptoms such as pressure at my forehead and third eye. I also feel super agitated at times, especially after meditation. I’ve also noticed a hyper awareness of myself, noise, and light. Now, whenever I eat steak for example, I taste blood. I can’t hardly eat it. I’ve been eating way more plant foods full of photons (light!). I also have more vivid images when I close my eyes. Sometimes I see streaming water with sunlight sparkles. Sometimes I have memories of events that I don’t recall happening in this timeline. More than anything, I have been more psychic… knowing what my husband is thinking or about to say. I have also been taking classes to become a certified Akashic Record reader and had a crazy first reading. I saw images in the records when practicing reading for a fellow classmate’s records that made me super emotional. I felt the violence and sadness of what I witnessed and began to weep. That’s when I knew the records are real…. I certainly would not cry over something I only made up in my mind. I am excited for what is to come from My third eye opening and Kundalini awakening. I know it is pulling me into doing my true work in the world as an Writer, Healer, Artist, and Teacher. I realize that all the hard times I’ve been through are preparing me for what I asked for. Namaste.

Karla October 10, 2020 - 10:15 pm

This was right on the spot for me and what I am currently experiencing. It’s another awakening phase and honestly, it’s not as bad as it was before but it has its moments of heaviness. I know I am being divinely guided. Best advice I can give anyone reading this is to call upon your angels & archangels for support. They can’t intervene if you don’t call upon them. Call on them when you need them and they will assist you! Blessings to you all.

Julia October 23, 2020 - 1:11 am

This really helped me. I see these colors and movement when I am falling asleep. I then have images like a movie. It seems like some of these things have happened in the past. Once it was like I seeing out of the eyes of someone else. I wish I understood the meaning of these visions. I am asking for clarity

anoniem October 29, 2020 - 11:10 am

Hey, lately i have been practising some third eye awakening meditations, going great so far. i bielive it has been a month and a half or so. i haven’t noticed much signs of it opening exept for some mild headaches in my forehead.
yesterday i was with my girlfriend and at some point she rubbed her eyes and told me “i saw you having 3 eyes for a few seconds.” (i have not told her anything about the spiritual expansion im currently going through, and she doesn’t know anything about this subject) i asked her: “what?! were you looking crossed eyes?” she responded with: “no” i asked about the location and colour it might have looked like.
she told me it was a litle above the center between my eyebrows, and that it had a blue ish vibe.
from that moment I took some time to explain what I was going through and some basics of the chakra’s.
questioning her potential psychic abilities and what this means for mine.
i have found nothing on google about someone else seeing your third eye,
can someone help me or contact me?

Anonimous .

ember bodley December 20, 2020 - 4:27 pm

some one can see your third eye but usually if their third eye is opening too

Bobbie November 12, 2020 - 12:20 am

I have thoughts about friends, or a song, or something breaking before, and later that day I have heard either from the friend, or heard the song on the radio, or the thing I thought would break did.

I am so excited on learning how to tap into my third eye and intuition.

Any advice on honing in on this is appreciated.
