You don’t need to be psychic to have an active third eye. In fact, everyone’s third eye is really very active. Perhaps the primary function it fills in most people is the projection of their perceptual filters onto their outside experience. It’s not only the reason you notice things, but it is also the reason you don’t notice a lot of things as well. It’s conditioned by your habits of attention and will. Hysterical blindness takes place not in the occipital lobes which are in the back of the brain and where the visual signal is first received. It happens in your forebrain, in the third eye itself.
Astral travel? This ability is centered in the third eye as well. Ever notice when you’re drowsing in bed your sense of your body becomes a bit strange? Either larger than normal or smaller, even maybe not there at all. It even shows up in those early images before you fall asleep. You can see images that look like people but their dimensions are all wrong, inflated, or too skinny, squashed or stretched out in a weird way. Recent research has even found that the phenomenon of synesthesia is not abnormal, just not active in most people.
Can you train the third eye? You can indeed. The first step being to remain calm in the middle of all the strangeness. The third eye registers light in a non visual way, and it registers parts of the energy spectrum that we don’t even consider light. The reason the visual images are so strange is that what the third eye is showing you is non-local reality. The objects of perception don’t have physical dimensions.
Like ghosts you see in the corner of your eyes. Yes. The peripheral vision often triggers a sort of visual release. It makes us analyze less, so we often first pick up on the sixth sense or inner vision in those situations. This is where many people first see an aura, but learning to use the third eye is really not much more complicated in practice than doing something like learning to drive. The biggest part is just learning what to look for and recognize what it is when you see it.
The reason it can seem complicated is because it’s also the center where we experience hallucinations and psychological projection. So a lot of what you see with your third eye at first is just your thoughts.
I’m guessing that blockages of this chakra often explains the high number of people wearing corrective lenses? We’re straining to “keep it real”? Indeed.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
