Struggling To Open Your Third Eye Chakra? Avoid These 4 Common Traps

When your mind is clear and your third eye is open, you can see and know things that are taking place thousands of miles away from you.

A lot of people want to feel better, and experience some sort of “transcendence” or connection to other realms that might exist, but what many don’t realize is that you absolutely need to have balance in order for you to be able to maintain all of those very high frequencies.

Everything in life has a frequency or a vibration. The “higher” a frequency is, the faster it is vibrating and the more difficult it can be for us to see with our physical eyes.

When you’re looking to “heighten” your intuition, you’re looking to attune it to these higher frequencies so that you can “sense” metaphysical energies.

If you’re looking to “heighten” your intuition, be sure not to fall into these common traps:

  1. Giving Up Too Easily

Just like you can’t expect to become a master painter overnight, don’t expect to be able to see orbs and archangels after your first meditation session. Trust me, you wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night standing face-to-face with the ghost of your Great Aunt Millie. In the very early stages, this will scare the crap out of you.

If you want to sense metaphysical energies, prepare to embark on a beautiful journey of self-discovery. Take the time that is necessary to adjust to these frequencies and let go of the old habits that keep you at a lower frequency. Enjoy the process. It’s beautiful.

  1. Holding On To Old Habits

Take a look around you. See any angels? If not, it isn’t because they aren’t there, it’s because there’s a “block” that’s keeping you from seeing them. That “block” acts like a blindfold. A “block” cannot take away your gift of intuition, only numb or hide it temporarily.

Some examples of common intuitive “blocks” are stuck emotions from the past, a toxic relationship, a chemical laden diet, or a harmful work or home environment.

If you’re looking to “heighten” your intuition, it’s necessary to take inventory and see what could potentially be hindering your extrasensory perception and let it go.

  1. Taking On Too Much Energy

When you’re empathic, you intuitively pick up on the energies of others and your environment. You begin to feel energies all around you in addition to your own thoughts and emotions. This can get exhausting pretty quickly. When you find yourself in this position, you need to ground yourself.

For example, kids have intense spiritual energy. They are these pure, bright lights in the world. And what do they LOVE doing? Playing! Moving! Running! Hopping! Skipping! Jumping! They need movement as much as adults need movement.

When you’re pushing your body to play a sport or to swim, jog, or hike, you’re engaging and changing your physiology. Your feet hitting the ground, the sweating, the movement is a perfect recipe to help you release the negativity and “ground” any energy that can make you feel foggy.

If you are not grounded, you may find yourself subconsciously trying to ground through other activities like eating, engaging in conflict, scrolling through your Facebook news feed, watching TV, or reading. These are not effective ways of grounding.

In order to feel better and more rooted in the body and in the present moment, move your body. Try it every day for two weeks and see how you feel.

  1. Getting Lost In The Realms

Make no mistake, there is a harmful way of meditating. There are a great number of spiritual seekers who are “seeking spirituality” as a means of escaping the everyday.

Your soul, angels, and spirit guides are already here. The goal is to become aware of them, not get lost in the metaphysical world (which is a lot easier to do than you might guess). I’ve seen people treat meditation like a drug, alcohol, or role playing video game addiction. They live “up there” and use otherworldly language where they discuss realms, councils, alien beings, and other things that have little to no practical value in the everyday.

I’m not saying that there is no value in these experiences, but if you’re engrossed in meditation and you’re seeking a world to “escape” into, you will undoubtedly find a place. If you’re looking for information to entertain you, you will find information that entertains you. If you’re looking for big, scary energies that are threatening life on this planet, you will find these energies.

Try seeking beings that want to assist you in making your life a beautiful reality. Remember that you’re here for a reason. You are not on another planet or alternate reality. You are HERE. You don’t know for how long either. So why not make the most out of this experience? Use your metaphysical perception to add flavour and colour so that you can enhance and enjoy your reality instead of leaving it behind you.
