The point of my post is that there is no third eye.

Unless of course you have proof of it.

My post was removed as being off topic. You thread is about something that is regarded as imaginary in scientific circles, and by a lot of the public at large.

i was off topic in your thread about an imaginary subject.... My bad apparently.

Look, just because something doesn't suit you, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Similarly, lack of proof doesn't prove something doesn't exist.

It is certainly true that the third eye is regarded as imaginary. But it is also regarded as real. It just depends on who you ask.

Many people claim they've experienced the opening of this "third eye." I don't know whether they're talking about some real "eye" in a spiritual sense, a physical object located in the head somewhere (such as the pineal body), or whether it's just metaphor for an increase in understanding. But to them it's real, even though they can offer no proof.

I submit that you cannot offer any proof of most of the truths in your life. And yet, they remain true all the same.

I got some questions about the third eye

1) How do you open your third eye?
2) What happens when your third eye is open, what do you see?
3) What are the advantages and disadvantages of this?
4) Is it dangerous?

I saw some threads from people who opened their third eye. And most of them regret it. I have no idea what will happen if you open your third eye, so that's why I want more information from my fellow ATSers ;D. I get scared easily lol but I overcame my fear of sleep paralysis and now I lucid dream very often. Thanks for reading!


To answer your questions in order:

  1. To my knowledge, the third eye is a concept found in Tibetan Buddhism and Kundalini Yoga (and possibly elsewhere). The techniques vary. The practitioners claim that you need to live a lifestyle of austerity, discipline, and devotion in order to prepare yourself for the opening of the third eye. In Kundalini Yoga, you begin to work your Kundalini energy (or serpent) through your chakras, beginning with the root chakra located at the perineum. It moves from there up into your "tan tien", solar plexus, heart, throat, and then to your third eye. Once the Kundalini serpent reaches the third eye, the eye can be opened.
  2. As they say, YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary). The practitioners say that you must experience it, that trying to explain it is insufficient. They're probably right.
  3. The practitioners claim that you develop an entirely new ability to see things, clearer, deeper, more intuitive. Some claim you see auras or life-energy (prana). The advantage is that you see things as they really are. The disadvantage is that you see things as they really are. No, that's not a typo.
  4. The practitioners claim that it's dangerous if not done properly. They say that the unprepared mind may be driven to madness or may even die. They say that only by a long process of discipline can you strengthen yourself to properly handle the experience.

    You said you saw posts by people who opened their third eye, most of whom regretted it. Did they say how they did it? Did they take shortcuts like drugs? There is where your answer may be. If most people didn't like something, there's a good chance you won't, either.

Well for the pineal gland i dont need to back up its existence because it clearly does but for the whole chakra bit there ARE cameras that can take a picture of your aura and the chakras wuld most likely be a condensement of your aura over your body in such pictures. Im kind of going out on a limb and guessing on the chakra bit for those pictures but you dont know till you try.
It also just seems like your trying to troll butcher.

I think you're referring to Kirlian Photography (KP), which creates a visual display of how electricity flows from the body's surface into the film. It is widely (and, in my opinion, incorrectly) believed that KP photographs the "aura."

No KP has ever shown the existence of a chakra. This negative result does NOT mean that chakras don't exist. All it means is that this particular technology doesn't show them. It may simply be that chakras are too subtle to influence the flow of electricity. We haven't even begun to investigate this.

The thing is, there are many real things that cannot be detected by any physical means. Love, for example. Most of us would admit that love exists, but can anyone prove it? Say some alien comes here, who has never experienced or heard of love. He demands proof. What are you going to show him?

The fact that something lies outside the domain of scientific investigation is not evidence that it doesn't exist. All it means is that it is not a proper subject for scientific investigation. Most of reality lies outside this domain.

Hi all

Reading through the answers provided thus far, I'm struck with the need to ask one question:

"Is there a quick and easy way for us to activate our 3rd eye?"

I understand what's been said about meditation, but sadly my mind isn't in the state where I can meditate anymore (very long story) I'd still really like to experience the opening of my 3rd eye though and all the potential joy and horrors that accompany it.

Any advice you guys have would be great.


You might consider ayahuasca, which is a South American religious ritual involving various plants. The plants are legal. Any effort to concentrate the active ingredients in them is *NOT* legal, so don't even try to do that. The genuine, religious ritual is pretty hard on the body, though not life-threatening. Ayahuasca is also used medicinally as a purgative, just so you know...

Another possibility, that I haven't tried, is through neurotheology. It is claimed that magnetically stimulating the temporal lobes of the brain can sometimes result in spiritual or spiritual-seeming experiences. One researcher put magnetic coils on a snowmobile helmet. It came to be called the "God helmet." I'm guessing that the reports are exaggerated, but I haven't tried it myself so I can't really say.

better question is, is the 3rd eye true?

Please see my initial reply above.

See my edit.
Let me see a picture of this third eye, opening up.

Let me see a picture of love. Show me a picture of a radio wave. Or of philosophy, or consciousness. You agree that these things exist (I assume you do), because you've experienced them in some way. Can there never be things that you, personally haven't experienced, but that are nevertheless true?

Most realities are not subject to objective display.

Please, do a search for Third Eye on the message board. Yes, it is real. Yes, there are ways, too many ways, to open it. Yes, to open it too immaturity can have aversive consequences. Just imagine your third eye allows you to see and experience situations you could never have thought of. This can mean something tragic or blissful...

there were a series of books written by dr. tuesday lobsang rampa on the third eye and how to open it .the third eye is used for what is known as sight beyond sight or the ability to see through TIME SPACE &DISTANCE,and these are not what you believe them to be . time is not measured by a watch,space is not the area of a room or box, distance is not the 3 inches of your middle finger or the 3 feet of your arms length. you have to think outside of the box to understand them ,or what is also known as out of body experiences,there is a whole section at abts on this subject -oobe`s are real- is where you will find it here.
it does not hurt nor is there anything to fear with it as it is one of the natural gifts that we as a species all have ,the hard part is trying to reawaken the gifts within.
to quote an episode of star gate -daniel was shown a stick bent in to a circle trying to explain how the aliens could communicate beyond our known universe . daniel answered that we call it the folding of time and space he was told in time he would understand but that was not the answer.each end of the stick is a door way when brought together you cross over when you open it and step through to the other place , not fold or bent it .
in other wards it takes place within you then you extend it out into the world to learn by watching listening and learning , from what you are experiencing.but our world is not the only world or realm that you will have the pleasure to experience.

Experiencing with your 3rd eye could be very confusing as it is not a plane one is familiar with.

Imagine a carnival where all Avatars both known and unknown to you, experience you

Focusing on a dot could lead to experiencing an image that is infinitely larger than you.

What it comes down to, is why you are there and how you handle it.

If you are there because you are a world savior then who knows what will happen.

If you are there on a drunken night because you are bored....well then probably not so good

Lots of people here are not aware of the third eye, obviously.

OP: You can find the answer to your question outside ATS, with the added bonus of not having to argue with people who know nothing about it.

Realize that it is never closed !
Think about it.

It might not be fully closed, but you do have to open your awareness to what it is perceiving.

It's kind of like a beautiful landscape just out side a window.

The landscape is alwayse there, but it's not until you look out the window that you see it.

I apologize .. I apparently cant send messages. I just wanted you (Crashyy) to check your comments and/or post on overcoming depression for my reply/comment. It is about the lines on your back. That was such an older post I didnt think you'd see it if I replied on it.

My 2 eyes are giving me enough trouble.
Not sure I would know much about the third eye.

Im guessing that bad joke was already made .... which proves my point.

Be well Crashyy.

Indeed, there is NO proof whatsoever even though some people differ (those who have no proof). There is no "third eye" anymore than there are "chakras." However, there is scientific proof that people have two eyes and a brain to process incoming light as well as other information.

How do you open your third eye? Well you can begin your true enlightenment by realizing there is no such thing.

stop eating meats #1 get them parasites out of your body. go green(fruits and veggies). ask your higher self and spirit guides for assistance. gaze at the sun an hour after sun up or an hour before sun down are safe times. ten seconds first day and double the time each day(this was the key for me). 10 seconds first day, 20 seconds 2nd day, 40 seconds third day ,etc. while sun gazing plant your feet into mother earth. dig a hole and put those size 13's(if your me
into the ground. replant yourself and youll feel the light codes, because we are all STAR SEEDS. meditate and chakra balancing.. you know its open when you can see it even with your eyes open. purple is the color you want... i give it to you like no one else baby its not a hard thing to do.

What about all this stuff about if you drink water from the sink? Is it true it makes your third eye basically numb?

posted on Oct, 13 2012 @ 05:54 AM
If you can see a memory like a picture then you are already using your third eye but with full (natural) control and the expectancy you are viewing something which has already happened and is unchangeable. Whenever you hear a song in your head, that's using your third 'ear'. Feeling butterflies in your stomach is using your third skin or the equivalent of the nerves in the lightbody. Remember how a banana tastes, there's a third nose and tastebuds.

That is the 2nd body which grows naturally alongside the physical body. Upon death the spirit is only attached to this 2nd body and becomes it just as one becomes the physical body upon looking into the mirror for the very first time during life. Believing in this second body is what makes it stronger, using or exploring it is learning how to control it. It might appear unnatural at first but if society had embraced this concept, it would be just as natural as anything else.

The only danger is losing one's mind upon realizing how big this all is and how the masses are oblivious to this.

The third eye is just a name given to explain psychic awareness.
It basically means that people who naturally have a talent in certain areas, do a lot of practise and became more so.
Meditation is useful as it provides balance for your sense of self. As you cannot go round picking up information, a lot of it useless, all day. This can take over your life, and affect your mental health.
I hope this helps you.

Matthew 6:22, you don't know what you are talking about man. The pineal gland is the gift used to communicate with God.

Yes, fluoride in tap water binds to calcium which is how it gets into the Pineal in the first place.
