Are you noticing changes in your perception of reality?

  • Maybe you’re more perceptive of other people’s emotions
  • You just know things without knowing how or why
  • Seem to experience way more coincidences

This could be a sign that your third eye is awakening.

I’ve experienced all these signs and more my whole life. This has compelled me to find answers so I’m able to use these abilities and understand myself better.

In this post, I’ll share 9 third eye awakening symptoms that are common for those on a spiritual journey or going thorugh a spiritual awakening.

Let’s dive in.

1. Expanded Awareness and Intuition

When awakening the third eye, often referred to as the sixth chakra, you may experience an expansion of awareness, which can be described as a heightened sensitivity to your environment and an increased ability for intuition.

As the third eye is activated, one’s sense of perception broadens and a oneness with their surroundings heightens. This heightened awareness confirms the interconnection between humans and life around them.

The sensations experienced when awakening your third eye vary from person to person but generally include a range of emotions such as joy, bliss and understanding.

Dreams become more vivid, thoughts are clearer and emotions seem easier to process – these are some of the experiences associated with an open third eye.

The physical sensations or nine common signs you may feel when your intuition is being developed include:

  • headaches or other physical pain;
  • seeing colors in meditation;
  • feeling energy flowing throughout body;
  • experiencing physical tingling or buzzing sensation on crown of head;
  • feeling deep relaxation energy radiating from forehead;
  • lucid dreaming that leads to higher insights;
  • improved concentration over long periods of time;
  • becoming inspired ‘by accident’ regularly throughout day;
  • perceiving hidden messages in everyday occurrences.

To cultivate even deeper intuition development, performing intuitive exercises focused toward recognizing internal cues is recommended.

Connecting with nature can help sharpen one’s sixth sense through observing patterns in birds’ flight paths or trees growing patterns for example. Practicing meditation also has great benefits for developing intuition as it helps clear away mental clutter allowing people to pay more attention to their feelings when difficult decisions arise.

Taking some time each day for self-reflection can also aide intuitive thriving by connecting deeply with yourself on an emotional level – learning what triggers feelings like anger or sadness can lead us to taking better care of ourselves in our daily lives.

2. Notice Synchronicities Everywhere

One of the most powerful symptom of third eye awakening is noticing spiritual synchronicities everywhere.

This can be experienced as a sudden sense of familiarity with a person, place or situation in which you feel like you have come across it before. It can also be experienced as an inner knowing that something is true without any proof or tangible evidence.

It is a sign that your higher consciousness is activated and your intuition is sharpened, allowing you to pick up on subtle signs and signals that ordinary people cannot perceive.

This heightened sense of awareness means that the synchronous events in your life seem to happen more often and with greater frequency. Whereas before they might have only happened sporadically, now they are happening much more often and with what seems like perfect timing.

You might suddenly find yourself thinking about someone from your past and minutes later they call you on the phone.

Or you might find yourself randomly running into people who could offer great life advice or create meaningful partnerships for your future endeavors.

These are all unmistakable signs that the doors of your perception are expanding, allowing you to experience life beyond its tangible forms in order to progress spiritually and intellectually on another level of understanding and connection with the Universe.

3. Clairvoyant and Telepathic Abilities

Individuals who are clairvoyant, or possess the ability to sense or “see” spiritually, can expect certain signs or symptoms when their third eye is activating or awakening.

Though everyone’s experience is different, there are some common abilities associated with being clairvoyant that can indicate a heightened spiritual awareness.

The first noticeable sign of being clairvoyant is a feeling of vibrations in the etheric body, often signaled by an unexpected tingling sensation in the back of the neck or crown of the head. As your consciousness expands and your awareness deepens, these sensations become more frequent and pronounced.

Another symptom includes telepathic abilities or an increased capacity for intuitive insight.

Those with awakening third eyes tend to be amazingly perceptive about other people’s thoughts and intent before it is expressed outwardly (for example someone might be drawn closer to you in conversation).

Clairvoyants are also especially adept at understanding symbolism as it appears within their visions.

Curious if you are a true Claire-verse? Pay close attention to these nine third eye awakening symptoms which include clairvoyant and telepathic abilities!

  • Feeling vibrations in the etheric body
  • Increased telepathic abilities
  • Enhanced capacity for intuitive insight
  • Perceptive about other people’s thoughts and intent
  • Adept at understanding symbolism

4. Have vivid and even Lucid dreams

One of the symptoms of third eye awakening is vivid and lucid dreams. People who practice lucid dreaming often witness insights relating to their spiritual awakening during REM sleep.

Lucid dreamers are able to take control of the dreamscape and explore ideas, feelings, and fantasies that can lead to awareness and insight about their own psyche. In some cases, these risks awaken people in ways that are extraordinarily powerful.

For instance, a deeply profound epiphany regarding the nature of reality can be experienced.

As part of their third eye awakening process, some people experience an increase in the clarity and quality of their dreams. Lucid dreaming allows these people to become aware of themselves while they are in dream states, enabling them to gain new perspectives on difficult personal issues or the world around them.

By connecting deeply with the subconscious through lucid dreaming, people come closer to realizing truths about themselves necessitating change or growth in order to continue on life’s journey.

Ultimately this means developing a heightened state of being which transcends everyday consciousness or being stuck in mundane realities while awake or asleep.

Practicing lucid dreaming can help promote your spiritual opening if you find yourself experiencing any symptoms related to third eye awakening – including vivid dreamscapes – so keep up the practice if it suits your beliefs!

5. Pressure build up between eyes

As someone begins to open up their third eye, they may experience pressure build up between the eyes or at the forehead.

This pressure is caused by an increase in energy in the head area, which can be a sign of progress when it comes to opening one’s third eye. Some people might assume that this pressure is uncomfortable and unpleasant but, it’s actually quite normal when going through this process.

The best way to relieve this pressure is by using meditation practices such as visualization or chakra balancing exercise. Visualization allows them to guide energy between the physical and spiritual realms, while also connecting with source.

As they become more acquainted with their own energy and spirit, they will become better equipped to manage any of the pressures they feel on their forehead or around their third eye area.

Further techniques such as grounding, massaging the third eye chakra and focusing on feeling positive and loving can also help with easing any pressure or tension felt in this region of the body.

To find long lasting relief from symptoms associated with third-eye awakening, meditating regularly is highly recommended as it helps strengthen one’s spiritual awareness and activates more profound wisdom within themselves.

6. Lightheadedness and Headaches

Lightheadedness and headaches are common physical symptoms that many experience during a spiritual awakening or third eye awakening process.

This type of headache is often described as being behind the eyes and is often accompanied by lightheadedness, fatigue, and dizziness. These sensations can be overwhelming and may be accompanied by other physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual symptoms.

Those experiencing spiritual awakenings often have difficulty concentrating, have difficulty sleeping, or feel like time is moving more slowly than normal.

Lightheadedness and headaches during a spiritual awakening may be caused from releasing old beliefs or patterns in order to make room for new levels of growth and understanding.

Release of these beliefs can cause discomfort in the body as it adjusts to an expanded state of awareness. A heavy sensation around the forehead area may also occur as energy moves into this area related to psychic ability or intuition opening up or manifesting itself through the third eye chakra.

It’s important to remember that physical symptoms such as lightheadedness and headaches are a part of the normal process when one is going through a spiritual awakening; they will pass with practice and proper care such as:

  • Restful sleep
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Exercising moderately
  • Meditating regularly
  • Doing yoga/stretching on a regular basis
  • Incorporating gentle relaxation techniques into your daily routine

Keeping an open dialogue with your medical practitioner throughout the process can help manage any potential issues that arise due to these changes occurring within the body.

7. Become more health conscious

Third eye awakening can come with many benefits, such as an increased connection to your intuition and heightened creativity, but it can also come with some challenges.

One of these challenges is a heightened awareness of any underlying health problems that can arise when understanding the holistic relationship between body and mind. To prevent this, it is important to become more health conscious when seeking to awaken the third eye.

One way to become more health conscious when undergoing third eye awakening is through conscious eating. Eating nutritiously balanced meals that are rich in antioxidants will ensure you are providing your body and the third eye with the nutrients it needs for growth and development.

Cruciferous vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes, nuts, ancient grains, healthy fats and lean proteins are all beneficial for powering up your energy field. It’s also important to make sure your diet contains minimal inflammatory agents such as processed or high-sodium foods as too much of these substances can put stress on your overall wellbeing.

Yoga can be a great practice for mental clarity during periods of third eye awakening – focus on movements that open up your upper body regions such as chest stretches or spinal twists – as well as deep restorative poses like Child’s Pose and supported Fish Pose inversions where you can deeply relax in order to integrate new insights coming through from the spiritual realm.

Additionally meditation during this period is especially helpful – it not only helps provide clarity but also looks wonderful on experiential levels in cultivating inner peace which we all need more of!

8. Desire a higher purpose in life

As part of the process of awakening, many people experience a strong desire to search for a higher purpose in life – what is often referred to as one’s true purpose. This yearning is often described as part of the ninth and final third eye awakening symptom.

The 9 third eye awakening symptoms consist of physical, mental, and spiritual transformations that signal that the physical body is opening up to conscious awareness of subtle realities beyond our current materialistic understanding.

It starts with noticing that something inside is changing, like an energy rising up or down the spine or emanating outward from within the heart center.

Other common symptoms include increased intuition, Psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, astral projection and lucid dreaming; feelings of inner peace and high vibrations; visuals associated with visions of colors or geometric shapes; heightened psychosomatic relief; spontaneous energy healing; powerful synchronicities manifesting in your life and a desire for a greater spiritual connection with all things.

Moreover, experiencing unrealistic desires for finding one’s true purpose in life and focusing on achieving it can be seen as the ninth and last symptom in this phenomenon.

When you awaken your third-eye chakra it’s common to feel motivated by a mission bigger than your own life—eagerness towards answering big questions about our existence such as “What is my role on Earth?” or “What can I do to make this world a better place?”

As these shifts take place within us we become increasingly aware that there is much more than meets our eyes and begin seeking out answers to questions concerning their personal growth journey or mission in life.

9. See reality more objectively

The third eye is a mystical gateway that helps people to become more attuned to the realm of non-duality or oneness.

By activating the third eye, one can experience a heightened state of awareness, a sense of peace, and see reality more objectively. Awakening your third eye can greatly benefit your spiritual and mental health, but it is important to be aware of the symptoms associated with this process.

Some of the most common signs that the third eye is being awakened are:

  • Increased intuition, clarity of thought and emotional balance.
  • Vivid dreams and visions.
  • Improved ability to concentrate.
  • Enhanced creativity and problem solving skills.

Other signs could include physical sensations such as tingling in various parts of your body or sudden headaches or facial pressure around your forehead area.

You may also find yourself in situations where time appears to slow down or where everything seems abnormally connected or interconnected – as if all aspects of life have suddenly been revealed simultaneously.

It’s important to remain mindful as you move through this process so as not to become overwhelmed by any changes occurring within yourself.

Additionally it’s wise to practice grounding and protection techniques often at this stage such as setting clear boundaries with others in order to protect yourself from negative energy.

Finally remember above all else that awakening isn’t about moving into a new realm full of knowledge overnight but rather an ongoing experience that requires patience and trust in yourself in order for its fullest potentials can be manifested into reality.
