How to open your third eye:
Place a purple or blue crystal on your third eye:

It's true, If you lie down and gently place a purple or blue crystal such as amethyst or sapphire on your third eye, you may be able to open your third eye through peaceful meditation.
As you meditate focus on your third eye and any images or thoughts which may naturally arise.
Experiment with using different essential oils:
Specific essential oils such as sandalwood, lavender, white sage and frankincense can help you stimulate your third eye.
You may want to add your choice of essential oil to a hot bath or to rub your essential oil onto your wrists in order to activate your third eye.
You can even purchase beautiful necklaces which feature diffuser balls which you can spray essential oils onto.
Use a singing bowl:
Singing bowls can help you relax into a deep meditative state which will increase your chances of opening your third eye.
You may want to purchase a metal or crystal singing bowl to experiment with as the sound which will vibrate off your singing bowl will give you a sound bath.
Additionally you can purchase specific singing bowls to open up your chakras which will aid your quest to become more intuitive.
Alternatively, if you're not interested in purchasing your own singing bowl, there are plenty of free singing bowl sound bath meditations on YouTube to listen to.
Trust in your intuition:
As your third eye is responsible for your insight and higher vision, if you take note of ideas and feelings which come to you intuitively and trust in your insight, you'll become more adept at activating your third eye.
For example, if your intuition tells you that you should apply for a specific job or to contact a friend that you haven't spoken to in months, follow your intuitions as your higher self is trying to guide you in the right direction.
Listen to guided meditations:
Another way to access your third eye is to listen to third eye focused guided meditations which you can find on YouTube, such as this one here:
While regular meditation sessions are still useful for getting in tune with your third eye, often provide useful visualization techniques which will help you access the power of your third eye.
Some guided meditations will also feature music or singing bowls which feature a specific pitch which will open your spiritual third eye.
Listen to third eye focused meditation tracks while you sleep:
You can also work on developing your third eye's powers while you sleep by creating a playlist of third eye meditation tracks which you can listen to before you fall asleep and during your sleep.
As your subconscious will be activated by the third eye frequencies which you're listening to, even if you're fast asleep.
This one below is truly amazing, and at just over 2 hours long should be quite useful in helping you awaken and open your third eye.
You may even be able to find third eye focused meditation tracks, which are speech free which are 8-10 hours long.
If you don't want to compile a playlist of shorter tracks. If you have wireless headphones, you may want to use them to listen to your chosen tracks, so that you don't disturb anyone else in your home. Although if you live alone, feel free to listen to your tracks through your smart phone's speakers instead.
Write down as many details from your lucid dreams as possible:
If you find it difficult to open your third eye when you're awake, you may want to start off by accessing your third eye when you're asleep and more open to receiving spiritual insights.
When you wake up from a lucid dream and can remember specific details from your dream, immediately write down as many details from your dream as possible. As your higher self may be trying to give you valuable advice through your lucid dreams.
In order to increase your chances of having lucid dreams, it's a great idea to meditate before you go to sleep. You may even want to add an essential oil to your bath, before going to sleep to encourage lucid dreaming.
Practice yoga on a daily basis:
Some yoga poses can help you open your third eye. Such as child's pose, a pose which is well suited to beginners and involves placing your forehead and your third eye on your yoga mat.

It's a great idea to get into the healthy habit of completing a short 10 minute yoga practice as soon as you get out of bed in the mornings.
Yoga poses to try out include downward facing dog and the hero pose both of which will fire up your third eye.
