Awakening Your "Third Eye"

The "third eye" symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.


Since the beginning of recorded history, we have heard rumblings about a “third eye.” This legend extends to major world religions today, as well as to civilizations as ancient as Egypt. It is described as humanity’s ability to Connect with the Higher realms, contacting and interact with other beings, and even achieving higher levels of consciousness or being. Normally, these would be closed off to us, but the idea is that it takes work, practice, and discipline to truly reap the benefits of this vision.


The "Third Eye" in Ancient Traditions

Egyptian Traditions

The spiritual act of “Awakening The Third Eye”—still taught in Eastern traditions like Hinduism—was the central doctrine of the ancient Egyptian religion for thousands of years.  While many ancient cultures were still in their infancy, the Egyptians had already been creating mysterious images of a single Eye—the Third Eye—for centuries, if not millennia.
