Your third eye is also known as Your sixth chakra and is located between the eyebrows and a little higher than the bridge of the nose. Through utilizing a third eye meditation you can open your subtle senses to perceive higher-dimensional worlds and energies.
So if you want to learn to see someone’s aura, or angels, or even your own subtle energies you will have to learn to open this center. This is not for parlor tricks or to impress anyone. This is an important skill that can change and enrich your life.
The third eye or 6th chakra is your center of what is called clairvoyant sight which is a word derived from the French, meaning “clear vision,” and refers to the higher-sense ability to intuitively see or perceive subtle energies. Sometimes this is referred to as a sixth sense which means a capability to access impressions that lie beyond the recognized five physical senses.
You’ll Never View Things the Same Again
It is not necessary to be clairvoyant to be spiritually enlightened, but it does expand your perceptions of the energies around you, and this can be quite useful in clearing blocks, issues, and limitations, releasing karma, discovering information from your past, and exploring new and higher levels of consciousness.
What you see with clairvoyant sight can be colors, pictures, visions, auras, chakras, and inspirational and spiritual dimensions. For instance, a clairvoyant can often perceive the chakras and aura energies around people, plants, and animals. Sometimes they also have the ability to see non-physical realms including angels and other dimensional beings and objects.
The third eye is merely an instrument that gives access to refined energies and since everyone has a third eye, much like people have physical eyes, with practice, utilizing third eye exercizes anyone can learn to open it and refine the ability to utilize what it offers.
Have You Wondered What the Third Eye is Like?
Inside the head behind the center of the eyebrows (about 2″) there is a small ball of light often seen by clairvoyants, and the degree of openness of that ball of light determines the level of clairvoyance that a person has. Often people see something, but because of blockages do not see clearly or understand what they are seeing.
When the third eye is opened and a person is able to perceive subtle energies, it is seen to radiate light, often with multiple colors coming out of it. There can be rays of golden, silver, or white streams of light coming into it as it receives information. This forms the pictures, and inspiration that is perceived. As the third eye opens more and more the light emanating from the third eye grows stronger and wider. Soon the person’s forehead appears bright and radiant.
What You Can Expect to See
In the beginning stages of the third eye opening, colors are seen and indistinct images are perceived like looking through a steamed window, or like looking at something through heat rays on a hot summer’s day; they are indistinct. With experience these images become more and more clear, and the energies underlying physical reality can be perceived. Some clairvoyants say that what they see with their clairvoyance is more clear and vivid than what they see with their physical eyes.
Why People’s Third Eye is Usually Blocked
As the clairvoyant sight opens more, you will see energy fields like clouds surrounding a person 10 or 15 feet from the person’s body. Sometimes these fields extend much farther. These colorful layers of energy are what make up the biofield or aura around a person and they carry a lot of information. One of the aura layers is known as the mental body which carries the beliefs and conclusions from life experiences, while the aura layer known as the emotional body carries pictures and emotional energies of the experiences.
Because the third eye is connected to the first, second, and third chakras through subtle energy cords, if there are blockages there they usually cause a contraction in the third eye. With most people there are blockages usually in the form of fears or disbelief. Depending on where the blockage is, determines the difficulty of understanding what is seen. So you will want to utilize the third eye meditations and other tools to clear the blockages.
Besides the Meditation What Else You Can Do
The biggest obstacle is the mind judging and doubting. As you quiet the mind so it doesn’t intrude and you relax all effort, you will be more successful. Opening the 3rd eye is “effortless” meaning when you try or strain to “see” you close down the experience. If I say to you “look out the window and tell me what you see,” you’ll casually look without effort or straining and describe what you notice without doubting or judging yourself (hopefully). So approach opening the 3rd eye similarly.
One exercise that can help is to pick an object like an apple or something on your desk and study it. Notice details. Then shut your eyes and picture it the best you can. Then open your eyes and look at it again, etc. This will help train the mind to observe visually. The majority of people are not naturally highly visual, they are more conceptual since that is what our educational systems train us to do. So the mind needs practice in becoming more visual. With a lot of practice anyone can succeed because it is very natural…as natural as seeing with your physical eyes.
It is very important to realize that opening the third eye and developing a skill in utilizing it generally takes a lot of practice and patience over a period of months and even years. While some are born with a more open third eye, most are not, but everyone can learn to do it. The guided meditation you can listen to in this article is just a beginning. I have more tools in my 3rd Eye Development Toolkit.

Question: What Else Do You Suggest for Training the 3rd Eye?
The third eye is about the ability to “see” subtle energy. It is also important to be able to receive intuitive impressions from the other senses such as feeling the energy and “hearing” communications. Usually, more than one capability opens at nearly the same time.
Some people have spontaneous openings but even in those cases considerable guidance is need to understand what is being perceived and, more importantly, what to do with what is seen.
Doing the guided 3rd eye meditation would be helpful once a day for a few months. The other practices in the Psychic Development series can be done at various times throughout the day.
If you are interested in the visual ability you can enhance your abilities by practicing visualizations. They help the brain/mind get familiar with visual images. Often what is perceived with the 3rd eye is symbolic and not as vivid as seeing with physical eyes. It takes practice to learn to interpret what you see. Most people who develop the skill spend many hundreds and even thousands of hours practicing.
Getting good at reading subtle energy requires mind training. The Creative Visualization audio program is very helpful in this regard.
It is also helpful to have a partner you can practice with. Sitting across from each other have the intention of attuning to some aspect of the other person such as scanning their physical body’s internal organs for health related issues. You could also attune to the person’s aura around them, or a person’s chakras and desire to see and understand what you can.
Often in the beginning the process feels like you are making it up, but over time you will realize you are getting valuable information. At first you may only see shapes or colors and no distinct images. Keep practicing. Eventually, you will be able to sharpen the ability.
The biggest obstacle is self-doubt or fears. You’ll have to be attentive to what goes on it your own mind that interferes. The process is not analytical yet the mind tries to analyze what you are doing and clouds the images. You have to be very relaxed and neutral…. and patient.
Question: I have a couple of questions about the 3rd eye. There are things that have happened in my life that no one has been able to explain to me. When I was the age of 6 I could look around in the house I lived in and see things my parents couldn’t see. I could see people that were once alive, like we are today. During the day or night I could sit down in the middle of the house and have a conversation with other worlds. In front of my parents they asked me who am I talking to. I would try to explain and they looked at me weird. I have had a couple of moments where I saw something happen before it did. I know my 3rd eye was completely opened when I was a child. I’m a lot older now and have new things hapening. Now my question is can you explain any of this to me. Why did I see that stuff when I was younger? What does it mean or is there something that is blocking my 3rd eye? It has been 15 years and no on e has been able to really give me an answer. Thank you, Cathlina
JONATHAN’S ANSWER: It’s actually quite common for children to be open to receiving psychic impressions. Part of that is due to a child not having developed strong analytical thinking which generally diverts the mind from intuition and therefore precludes psychic abilities. The psychic opening generally begins closing with most children around age 4 or 5. Of course, in some cases it never completely closes, and in those cases, I suspect, the child had psychic abilities in past lives and thus learned how to keep the channels open.
Nearly everyone has the potential to open at least some types of psychic ability, but for most people it takes considerable training and practice, and most people are not willing to devote the necessary time to do so. In your case, since you were psychic as a child it would probably be easier for you than most people to regain and refine psychic skills.
The most common block I have found to be is the analytical portion of the mind interpreting and otherwise interfering with the psychic impressions coming in through the 3rd eye. With some people I have found they had past lives in which they were persecuted for being psychic and therefore closed down the ability and, in some cases, took a vow to never let it happen in the future. Everyone is unique in this regard and it usually takes someone with psychic ability to help determine the cause and then help a person regain the ability.
