How to Open Your Third Eye

Opening your third eye while you sleep is totally possible.

Slipping into your PJ’s and drifting off to sleep is smile-worthy enough on its own… but what if you could also develop clairvoyance while in dream land? You can!

As if you needed another reason to catch some shut eye.

Ready to open your third eye, effortlessly?

That’s right, your nightly zzz’s just got a little more productive.

You see, when we sleep, we enter our most intuitive mode. Our “logical” mind is at rest, so it’s easier to forget about our physical world, and let our Higher Self and intuition shine through!

We’re also in a dream state which allows our Spirit Guides to pass us messages before we wake up. That makes our dozes the perfect time for developing clairvoyance!

So now, here are some easy ways to open your third eye while you sleep.

How to Develop Clairvoyance in Your Sleep

1. Sleep with a crystal near your pillow

Crystals are long-standing tools used to develop clairvoyance. (Plus, they’re pretty and sparkly!)

Having crystals around can:

  • Help open your third eye (and develop clairvoyance)
  • Dispel negative energy
  • Provide spiritual grounding

So which crystals should you use?

One of my favorite crystals to sleep with is the black tourmaline. It repels negative energy, which keeps nightmares at bay.

I also love amethyst (you know, that pretty purple one?) because it calms anxiety and brings balance and harmony.

Even better? It can open your crown chakra and increase psychic ability!

But amethyst and black tourmaline aren’t the only crystals that support psychic development. Clairvoyance is also strengthened by:

To get the most out of this tip, place the crystal directly near your pillow — not on your nightstand or on the floor. Keeping it near your third eye will help develop your clairvoyance and improve psychic dreams.

Oh, and by the way: Don’t be surprised if you wake up with some amazing revelations after dozing off with a crystal nearby. And that leads us to the next tip…

2. Keep a dream journal

Developing clairvoyance in your sleep will undoubtedly lead to some journal-worthy dreams.

Even if you’re not someone who remembers their dreams or has vivid dreams, you’ll want to use this tip after experimenting with crystals (trust me!)

Here’s how to keep a clairvoyance dream journal:

  • Keep your journal next to your bed to record your dreams as soon as you wake up. (Yes, that means before your coffee.)
  • Be sure to write down everything you remember — even if it doesn’t seem like it’s relevant or cool, write it down.

After doing this for a while, you will start noticing patterns and symbols that are meaningful to you. Pay attention… You could even remember a past life or have a breakthrough!

After all, sleep is “play time” for us as we astral travel and connect with our spiritual friends. So, almost every dream has some kind of meaning (even if it’s not immediately obvious.)

Tip: even if you don’t usually remember your dreams, try a dream journal, anyway. The crystals will support and do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. Plus, you’ll be strengthening your psychic gifts at the same time. Win-win!

3. Set the intention to receive guidance through your dreams

Just like in meditation, intention is important in psychic development. And letting your Spirit Guides know you’re ready to develop clairvoyance will boost your results!

Remember, your Spirit Guides want the best for you — and that means they want you to connect with your purpose and Higher Self. So, they will be happy to oblige when you reach out to let them know what you’re up to.

Tip: Your Guides will provide guidance during your dreams, so don’t forget to write down their messages when you wake up.

4. Open your third eye with a crystal grid

A crystal grid is a combination of crystals placed together to achieve a certain goal — in this case, clairvoyance development. (Other crystal grid goals could be business success, money attraction, love, or creativity.)

You see, each individual stone brings a unique benefit to the table.

For example, black tourmaline is great for banning negative energies. And amethyst rocks (pun intended) at supporting intuition.

A crystal grid harnesses each stone’s benefits and unites their power.

Best yet? Creating a crystal grid is super simple!

To get started, select your crystals. Then, write your intention of developing clairvoyance on a piece of paper. (This paper will go under the center crystal in your grid.)

Next, arrange your crystals in a pattern and place it under your bed, and head off to catch some zzz’s. For step-by-step directions for making a crystal grid, head over here.


As you can see, it’s nearly effortless to increase your clairvoyant gifts while you sleep. A few pretty crystals, a journal, and a solid intention will go a long way! So, be sure to try some of these tips today.

Lastly, if you’re looking for an extra boost, diffuse some lavender essential oil (my personal fav!) as you drift off to sleep. You can also place a drop of it on your crystal before putting it near your pillow.

Other great oils for clairvoyance are: jasmine, sandalwood, chamomile, and cedarwood.

Plus, essential oils can help you enter a deeper sleep which means longer, more vivid dreams. They can also help you have peaceful dreams and great recall.
