Third Eye Chakra Opening Symptoms

So what happens when you open your third eye chakra? What are some of the opening symptoms you can expect after activating and awakening your third eye chakra. Here is a list of the most common experiences people have had. These symptoms are divided into short term and long term symptoms.

So if you are interested in opening and activating your third eye and pineal gland, or maybe you’ve already started your practice, then here are some of the most common experiences people have had. These may vary from person to person, but most people experience at least some of these symptoms after they have started their awakening process.

Short Term Symptoms

So if you are currently working on third eye activation, here are some of the opening symptoms you may experience right from the start. These can be indications that your practice is working and that your third eye chakra is slowly opening.

  • Headache and migraine
  • Pressure on your forehead
  • Tingling sensation on your third eye
  • Nightmares
  • Vivid dreams
  • Seeing lights as you meditate
  • Hearing a popping sound within your head
  • Seeing figures or shapes when meditating


Long Term Symptoms

If you have been practicing third eye activation for some time, these are some of the symptoms you may be experiencing.

  • Becoming more alert
  • Catching movements in the corner of your eyes
  • Having vivid dreams
  • Having precognitive dreams
  • Tuning into energies around you
  • Feeling more connected to your intuitive abilities
  • Sensing the non-physical world

You don’t have to be experiencing all of these short and long term symptoms, as we are all different. Some will have very subtle and discrete symptoms, while others will have more intense ones.


Should You Open Your Third Eye?

Third eye activation is not for everyone. Before you decide to open your third eye, be sure to do a lot of research on the topic, so that you are properly prepared before you start. Some people do regret opening their third eye chakra, if they have a very intense and overwhelming experience with it. So be sure that this is for you.

You should also make sure you have the right mindset before you start. Remove all fear you may have, as that will only steer you in the wrong direction, making you attract negative energies, which is something you do not want. So make sure your mind is clear and positive.


These were some of the most common third eye opening symptoms. Keep a journal to keep track of your spiritual development. This can greatly help you notice even the most subtle symptoms and results from your practice.

    Opening third eye is not a very big deal, the deal is how you deal with the situations which comes after opening the third eye.
    It should not be treated as a trend which every people must follow to look cool or something like that.
    3rd eye is the divine right of every sentient beings in the universe and should be treated with care and respect. Our physical eye is the eye of our body, but the 3rd eye is the eye of our soul. When the soul is ready( mature, stable, ready to face the truth, ready to know the working of the universe and its beings), Our soul then automatically advances itself to the next higher level of consciousness without our own mental or physical effort by forcing our third eye to open prematurely(just like you are putting a 4rd class student to give a graduation level exam: definitely the poor child fails in exam because he doesn’t know the basics of the middle levels). When the soul is ready i.e, when our lower chakras are ready to serve as a basic foundations for our third eye to stand on and carry on its divine duties. We respect oneself and understand everything deeply and in a more positive way and deal with it in a healthy way. Whatever happens after the activation we face it like a mature beings and try to understand it rather than judging and being fearful of it. Because we graduated at this point step by step, now we are rock solid, our lower chakras are strong enough to handle the knowledge and experience given by our 3rd eye chakra.
    Opening 3rd eye is a great responsibility to yourself and to the world.
    The universe is effortless…but ignorance makes it complicated.
