There are several ways you can open the third eye and experience the clarity of life.

Free your mind

Chakras are wheels of energy that align your spine and the third eye chakra is located between the two eyes and right above the bridge of your nose. The primary tool we can use to open it is meditation. Make sure you find a calm spot where you will not be disturbed and in a relaxed state and try to focus your mind on this chakra. A comfortable posture helps the mind and body connections. Finding a mantra you can chant is useful, try with something easy like: „peace” or the universal „om” that is the very first primordial sound of the universe and carries powerful vibrations that recharge, cleanse and opens your third eye. chanting it 108 times a day clears your spirit and mind. You can also pick longer mantras like „I choose happiness”, but it is your choice, as following your instict is the best way to find your own mantra.

Besides meditation you shall also become mindful, so make sure you pay attention to the present, the physical sensations and emotions you experience hence you become more aware of the world surrounding you. Exploring your core beliefs can also reveal certain blocks and limiting circumstances keeping you locked in restricting mindsets that keep the third eye closed.  Whatever you think is what you end up manifesting. Affirmations such as „I see clearly”, „I trust my abilities”, „I listen to my inner wisdom” will alter the way you think and support your third eye.

Visualization of the third eye for five minutes a day supports the opening of the Ajna chakra. While taking deep breaths imagine a pulsing ball of purple light opening and clearing the third eye.

Gratitude supports the energy flow within the chakras and improves your whole life by shifting your mindset. Make sure to list at least 10 things you are grateful for daily. It can either be done while meditating or you can journal it.

Journaling about the blessings in life supports the third eye to open, similarly to journaling about  all feelings and cognitive distortions or mistaken beliefs, which are easier to let go after having them revealed. Once you can name the mental traps you are experiencing, letting them go is going to be easier. Writing down how you feel creates clarity and inner order.

Whenever you journal negative thoughts and energy is released and measurable positive energy subsitutes it.
