You want to gain insight and strengthen your intuition, you must first understand what the third eye is. According to Wikipedia: “The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow,chakra. In Theosophy it is related to the pineal gland. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often 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.”
There are many benefits of having your third eye activated. They include intuition, vivid and lucid dreaming, better astral projection, wisdom and insight, enhanced imagination, clarity, better sleep quality, stronger concentration, and better visualization.
When you don’t care of your third eye, your pineal gland can become calcified, causing one to lose the benefits of having an open third eye. Calcification of the pineal gland can be caused by hormones, additives, sugar, artificial sweeteners, and fluoride. The process of calcification is the buildup of calcium phosphate crystals, and can even show up as a solid lump during a MRI scan.
If your pineal gland is calcified, don’t fret, it can be re-opened. With continual care, your pineal gland will be free in no time at all. Here are some things you should keep in mind:
Adding to your diet. There are some food that are fuel for your third eye and have natural detoxifying and body-nourishing properties. They are just about essential when removing the calcification from your pineal gland. This includes seaweed, garlic, honey, apple cider vinegar, cilantro, coconut oil, goji berries, citric acid, noni juice, watermelon, hemp seeds, bananas, and raw cacao.
Using crystals. Generally, crystals that are good for your third eye chakra, and pineal gland, are indigo, violet, and dark blue or purple. These would include amethyst, lapis lazuli, sugilite, angelite, tanzanite, azurite, sodalite, and charoite. There are a few stones of different colors that also work, such as celestite, ametrine, selenite, moonstone, larimar, and clear quartz. You can hold these crystals between your brow and absorb the energy. You may also carry them, wear them as jewelry, or create a crystal grid.
Avoid fluoride. Fluoride is mainly found in tap water and toothpaste, but can be found in processed foods, red meats, and artificial drinks. To rid the fluoride out of your life, you should attempt to eat as organically as possible, and only drink/cook/bathe with water that has been filtered.
Use essential oils. Essential oils can be added to foods and drinks, added to bath water, inhaled, applied to skin, and burned in a diffuser/nebulizer. Some essential oils that help with the third eye are davana, pink lotus, clary sage, geranium, basil, sandalwood, marjoram, parsley, cypress, mugwort, jasmine, rosemary, lavender, pine, patchouli, and frankincense. You should remember to use caution when using essential oils, as some have certain effects if not used properly (mugwort should not be inhaled, etc).
Detox and stimulate your pineal gland. Things like bentonite clay, chlorella, iodine, D3, ginseng, spirulina, zeolite, hydrilla verticillata, chlorophyll, blue-green algae, borax, and blue skate liver oil all help your pineal gland go back to it’s formally gorgeous self.
Regular meditation and chanting. Chanting stimulates the pineal gland by causing the tetrahedron bone in the nose to vibrate. When chanting “om”, you are opened up to universal and cosmic awareness.
There is no absolute solution, since everyone is different. You can try one of these, or all. You should just make sure you are committed to this and are very frequent with these remedies, or you will likely not see any results.
Keep in mind, all of these are based on my opinions I found from my research. You may disagree or have something to add. Please do so kindly in the comments.
Blessed be, brothers and sisters.
