Have you been seeing an eye during meditation and are now searching for answers to what this means?
I’ve experienced this numerous times myself over the years. I’m going to do my best to help explain what it means,
What Does Seeing an Eye During Meditation Mean?
Seeing an eye is a different experience for everyone. How the eye looks, appears, and the feelings you have afterward is a personal and profound experience.
I just want to say that first in case you’ve talked about your experience through with someone else. There’s no right or wrong, and you might be seeing something very different to someone else.
If it’s an eye you’re seeing, however, this is almost certainly an indication that your third eye is opening.
What Is the Third Eye?
The third eye refers to the sixth chakra, also called the brow chakra and located in the middle of the forehead.
It’s an incredibly powerful chakra and represents your ability to “unlock” or see visions and knowledge you can’t obtain while conscious. As well as help you connect with your spiritual and psychic abilities.
If that’s a little confusing, it’s because it’s hard to explain if you’ve never experienced it.
Activating the third eye is a personal experience. It often represents a message from your inner, subconscious mind, and often leads on to greater revelations.
So, it’s something you should actively encourage through meditation. While finding that balance of not focusing on your vision and letting your mind dig deeper into the subconscious.

Meditation Techniques to Open Your Third Eye
If you’ve been seeing an eye while meditating regularly, you might feel more comfortable following your regular techniques.
However, I recommend at least trying to stimulate your third eye by trying the following:
Step 1 – Find somewhere comfortable and free of distractions as you normally would meditate.
Step 2 – Sit upright in a chair or in the lotus position if you’re comfortable with the lotus. This will ensure your chakras are aligned, which helps with this form of meditation.
Step 3 – Start with three deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Step 4 – Starting with your feet, relax every muscle in your body as you work your way up to your forehead.
Step 5 – Once at your forehead, imagine an indigo ball of light there. Some people imagine a lotus flower, they find it easier to see the petals peeling away.
Step 6 – This step takes practice. Allow whatever visions appear to be present without focusing on them. You should see an eye, bright colors, and you will see, hear, or feel something profound that you’re not able to in your conscious state.
Other Signs That You’re Connecting With Your Third Eye
There are other signs that you might be connecting with your third eye. It’s possible that your subconscious is trying to get a message to you.
Have you been experiencing any of the following:
- Lucid or vivid dreams that leave you feeling like you experienced what was in your dream
- Having feelings of deja vu, or profound feelings with similar effects
- You’re hearing things that other people aren’t.
- You are feeling more creative and optimistic about your future
- You’re feeling spiritually connected
Any increased feelings or understanding of the bigger picture, if that makes sense. Seeing your third eye gives you greater awareness, perception, and clarity.
