Jesus Christ and the Third Eye

To begin..

In modern days there is a new desecration of Jesus' teachings and the bible: Jesus preaching of the third eye. The third eye is dominant in Eastern belief systems and many spiritual beliefs, including the New Age movement. Many spiritual, philosophy, and yoga books, as well as articles on Hubpages will debate that Jesus actually spoke about the third eye and connects that to Jesus being a guru (by most called "the Master Guru") and enlightenment being the true path to God. This is a misconception and a result of not properly researching the facts and root words. To relate esoteric practices and The Way, of which Jesus spoke of, is blasphemy and truly contradictory in the very sense of the words. The defenses of such statements are results of misconstruing His Words and I would like to set it straight. In this article I will be breaking this down and kicking opinion out. Only facts will be used as evidence and common sense of the Christian belief system used to bring it all together.

The Illusion

" Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8 KJV

A popular thing going on in modern times is including Jesus and His beliefs into this New Age movement, or this Western spiritual and philosophical idealism. It has sprouted out tremendously and I was, at one point in my path in life, one of the people sharing this idea before i truly came to Christ and understood Him. These debates are fueled by opinion and watering down the bible to be able to fit these metaphysical things into it, but if you are going to be seeking Truth you must do adequate research and look at the grand picture. There is no connecting to Jesus through enlightenment, esoteric practices, or a third eye and that would fall under sorcery which is prohibited by God, Who Jesus is and taught of. People speaking otherwise are cozening seekers and spoiling Jesus' Name and teachings. I will explain what the real story is, and what He was actually saying.

These ideas have sprouted this Jesus and third eye belief from a verse of the bible:

  • "The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness." Matthew 6:22 KJV

I have seen this used too many times to defend this idea, as it is the only verse they can use. Many times I see this verse from the Gospel of Thomas used:

  • "If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."

Even though this article is not related by my personal feelings, it truly bothers me when people connect these non-existent dots because it is misleading people and supporting Christians and other seekers to partake in practices that will keep them from entering heaven. I can personally say with all confidence and full responsibility on my soul that if you are opening your third eye or participating in esoteric and metaphysical beliefs you will not be able to have a relationship with our Father YHWH (God) through Jesus Christ His Son. I urge all readers to research this on your own and read the facts that I am about to state to completely discredit all of these assumptions regarding Jesus Christ and Him speaking of the third eye.

A little about the third eye

For those who do not know what the third eye, I will explain a little. The third eye is predominant in Eastern belief systems such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and other religions. It is also found among most spiritual beliefs such as this New Age movement and numerous others. Also known as the brow chakra, the third eye is one of the chakras of our seven chakras system and is arguably the most important. Revered as the "portal of wisdom" and the source of intellect, intuition, and understanding of the universe it truly is a branch of sorcery and metaphysics. The third eye is very real and has been proven by numerous scientific studies, mostly known through electromagnetism. It can be opened through deliberate meditation and yoga, by other people, or even random awakenings but it is part of the forbidden knowledge and is reigned by satan. People argue metaphysics and general spirituality is different, but it really is part of the occult and is evil.

Located in between our eyebrows, slightly above so, it can be seen pictured throughout history most notably on Buddha's head. It is a key and core part of enlightenment and as many quote "reaching the Self, the god in all of us." This sounds nice, but we are made by God and in His image, not to actually be Him. As Jesus stated in Matthew 10:24: "the disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord." To try to be God, or to claim you are, is blasphemy and can be considered blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which is the unforgivable sin (Matthew 12:31).

People may believe what they choose, but to lead people to things which you are not sure of is accepting the responsibility of where their soul ends up. Tell me, if you mislead someone and they end up going to hell because of your teachings, who's fault is that? Theirs, or yours? Take heed.

Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life.

The Truth

I spoke lightly on this confusion in my last article, Chakras and Kundalini but I will explain it again. The verse used, as mentioned above, when read can confuse someone and can be used as a defense of the third eye but it's not using proper research. When Jesus was speaking of this He was talking about someone's mind and focus on God and good things. Many people, even Christians, will use one verse without reading the rest of the chapter and come to a definite conclusion. We find this when people speak against tattoos using Leviticus 19:21 which I will discuss in a later article. If Jesus was talking about enlightenment or something of the sorts in the chapter, it could be used, but this is not the case.

The word "single" that we see in "when thine eyes become single" comes from the Greek word "haplos" or "halpous" which literally means simple, focused, or single as to purpose. What this means is not literally "when your eyes become single" but it means when your "eyes" are focused onto one thing, and not all around. When you are focused on God and not focused on other things such as money, sex, drugs, and other sinful things you will be filled with Light, which is God. Spiritual people will insist that this verse makes even more sense because the "God" they believe in is energy, and light. Even though this is true, God is a Spirit and not some old white man in the clouds, this is a pretty poor defense. What Jesus is saying is that when you are good, and focused on God, you will be filled with Him.

The eye is the lamp of the body. This is regarding the mind, the eye of the soul. If your mind (eye) is focused on God, it is the lamp to your body, or soul. Many scholars will say, and I agree with this, that Jesus was referring to the good eye as being generous and good, and the evil eye as being selfish, and bad. The basic point is that Jesus is not referring to a third eye, but is referring to what your mind is focused on and that if you are concentrated in one direction (being God and overall goodness) than your body (soul) will be filled with Light and the Light in you (God) will be a lamp to your life, leading you. If you are selfish and a bad person, your eye (mind) will be filled with darkness and you will probably get lost, with no lamp.

Scroll to Continue

With this being said, and no further discussion necessary, this verse can in no way be used as a defense for the third eye as the word they use to defend such a belief does not mean "single" in the literal terms but means "single as to purpose" or "simple." These arguments now cannot stand their ground and must be tossed out. To paraphrase what Jesus was saying, upon my own understanding, can result in two things:

  • The mind is the lamp of your life, body, and soul. If your mind is focused on God then you will be filled with Him. If your mind is focused on other things and not God, then you will be filled with darkness and how great is that darkness.
  • The mind is the lamp of our life, body, and soul. If you are a kind, generous, and good person you will be filled with God and goodness. If you are a selfish, uncaring, and bad person you will be filled with darkness and how great is that darkness.

To further understand, the "lamp" is used in many scripture verses as referring to God and His Direction in our lives. In Psalm 119:105 we see "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Also in Matthew 25:1-13 we see Jesus speaking a parable of the ten virgins and lamps. The "lamp" is used to signify God's Light in our lives as a way to see our way, and get closer to Him. Not considering these things but just taking a verse out of the bible (usually without reading the bible in entirety) is not getting a true understanding but just using something to support a certain opinion.

Go in peace

Although brief, there is not much more needed or available to defeat this belief. The very word these deceivers use is not the actual meaning and their knowledge is not coming from God, but from satan. Seekers must take warning that the third eye is a huge part of the occult and is used by people in the occult. It is in no way a Christian thing and I am not the Judge but I can say with full confidence that the third eye will only do one thing with God: keep you from Him. If you are participating in third eye beliefs and practices I urge you to repent and run to the Cross; He will save you and if you have faith in Jesus Christ being the Only and True Son of God and The Only Way you will be rescued and lifted up. God warns us of staying as far away from the occult and paganism as possible and I assure you that this New Age movement and Eastern beliefs / spirituality /philosophy are indeed part of the occult.

Do not trust a person who is saying that Jesus supports the third eye but do as John says in 1 John 1-3: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

I pray that this has helped someone and has set some things straight. Although people will debate this until they are blue in the face, remember that facts always override opinion. God bless and may He lead you closer and closer.

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."

Matthew 7:7-8


Solomon c Jere. on November 01, 2019:

What a powerful explanation with vivid evidence from the scriptures. Rick Bailey you are the man.God bless you.

There is only one way and that is Jesus' way,no two ways about. Emptiness and lack of knowledge concerning the word of God is what is causing most people to wander away from the Truth, trying to find some quick fix. with God everything has to go through a process there is no shortcut whatsoever.

If you feel lost,discouraged and confused just do this;

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."

Matthew 7:7-8

Andrew Murdock on August 19, 2017:

I wouldn't be so quick to judge anyone who has opened their third eye because once it's open it's open. That doesn't stop Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven from loving and saving you. I will say this though you may get what you're asking for if you're playing around with it I did. I was lead astray from God and I've had many demonic things go on I've even talked to the devil himself I believe. I can't remember if that was before or after I opened my eye. I did have paranormal experiences before I ever played with my pineal gland but now that I have opened it I'm very in tune to the world that's right here all around us. The Veil between the Worlds is very thin for me. I can't even begin to explain everything I've experienced but I definitely see that I was in serious trouble the devil had a serious hold on me. I truly believe God intervened the way he did in my life just because my mother prayed for me so much and I'm tearing up just thinking about how great he is and how loving he is for saving someone like me from the life I was living. I owe everything to him but I still can sense and see things sometimes and I can see how the Devil is working through people that are lost now that I'm with God. So in a way I did gain some power from it but it's not anything you wouldn't get by asking God for intuition and discernment in everything you do. If you don't think there's a battle for your soul all day everyday you're sadly mistaken but it's such an easy fight to win with God on your side because who could be against you if God is with you ?

charlie from From Kingdom of God living on Planet earth in between the oceans on July 13, 2017:

Pure and simple it produces melatonin to regulate your sleep cycles-- no more no less

The pineal gland is located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join. The pineal gland produces melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns in both circadian and seasonal cycles.[1][2]

for all of you that profess Christianity that are foolish enough to partake of such false teaching of things with absolutely no scriptural reference, here is what that gland is and its function. . It is important that we have one and that it does its job as stated. There is no such thing as a third eye in a human. There is no scriptural story around it.

PS if you believe that garbage false doctrine you are on the wide path and not the difficult one.

casper on June 23, 2017:

I was practicing the third eye for the reason of learning to be a medium or something, thinking it would be great to know it all, then i got thinking do i want to know it all. I meditated for two months and the results were surprising. The staring at the trees for enlightment was i seen my deceased neighbor and his father in cartoon sort of way. I was looking for images of animals in the trees.I have done a lot of research and my way of thinking is that jesus is saving us from the wrong doing satan is helping us with so we dont live our lives to the fullest.I am a poker face myself, someone with a serious face at all time but when i think jesus is beside me well i feel happier and thats the way of health soul. amen.

Gregory S Palmer from North Richland Hills on May 31, 2017:

I used to be a devout agnostic. For about twenty-seven years of my life I searched the world , the religions, the metaphysical the physical even of course the Word. It wasn't until about halfway through my current 20-year marriage did I met man named David S. Ritsema, PhD who got sent to lead me to the Lord.

Now at some unnamed seminary in the Dallas-Fort Worth area whenever a new PhD student graduated they would have a Satanist, luciferian, agnostic, atheist, naturalist, Etc argue their points in front of a congregation with the new Graduate.

Well for over 6 years I just happened to be that agnostic person who argued my points.

Even though I was into the metaphysical, as I was still attempting to find some truth, I still just argued for the agnostic and to the dislike of the other religions it was very easy to argue.

Positions that I held such as all truth is volatile, there's nothing that you can believe today, even be willing to die for it today, that you would not be willing to die for the opposite tomorrow.

As well as comments like your will cannot unwill itself, your perception cannot perceive itself and the only constant phenomenon IS change.

I do not wish to speak any more of my past heresy, as I certainly don't want to bring any doubt two anyone.

Needless to say God found me, by a man that I personally believe was the only man that God could have sent to have changed my views.

So little by little I would speak to David and the funny thing is is he never once mentioned God. We just became good friends not mentioning our differences the both knowing them.

The point that I'm getting it is there has been many attacks on the Gospels especially in post modernistic times.

I am still a baby Seminary Student so I don't wish to comment on the distractions this article has brought because it would require me to study it just as I would not like anyone to concentrate on my previous views in these statements that I made when I argued agnosticism.

What I do find very confusing is this a place for Seminary students or theological graduates?

I understand that they're certainly not going to be agreeance upon all things, however I find it difficult that the focus is in the differences that most have.

Mrs. Smiley on November 17, 2016:

God gave us free will when he created us. He cast satan out if heaven and places him on earth. When Adam and Eve were created he also created the forbidden tree of knowledge and Eve was decieved by satan to eat the fruit. So the third eye represents the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge god put it there for a reason and gave us the free will to see what choice we make. Choose God or satan

Erin Peralta from USA on November 04, 2016:

I can't believe someone wrote about the third eye and religion as a topic!!! What a waist of my time reading this.

Cathy on October 12, 2016:

Here's my take on the Third Eye; It's real, it has been given to us by God. I believe it was opened when Adam and Eve partook of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, and subsequently then closed, when they fell. I believe in seers and visions, prophecy, etc. We use the Third Eye in those instances. That being said, it's a dangerous thing to venture out on one's own, using hallucinogens to see. I have always approached the Lord in prayer and requested the accompaniment of the Holy Spirit when the Lord has things to show me...but I always leave that up to Him. I wouldn't condone just stepping out there on one's own. You have no power over those entities you would encounter if you go out on your own will, and deception abounds. Yes, the Third Eye is an organ for seeing, and it should be given to God for redemptive purposes.

Angel on June 03, 2016:

rick you said "IF these things were made by God, to use by us to reach God, then why wouldn't we naturally be "enlightened?" Why would we have to open our third eye / pineal gland, and reach nirvana, if it is our "original state?" That does not make sense, unless we had some type of "falling out."

that "falling out" is something weve grown into. I strongly believe perspective is a key part of our spirituality and when our perspective is (purposelly changed) by a system molded in poison and bad intent, it makes sense as to why we would need to "Open our third eye"

in this Awakening process your personal connection w the lord becomes stronger at heart and mind, simply from your department of modern societies standards . The process shows your dedication towards NATURE, PEACE ,LOVE AND COMPASSION , which im sure GOD would love for us to learn especially in this age. With Reason.

Its our beliefs that get in the way (christianity vs buddhism) (christians vs muslims) that leads us to think demonic/angelic.

one of the the strongest things GOD urges us to learn Regardless of what religion you follow is UNITY. we were supposed to learn from EACHOTHER instead we created war,






man made drugs

technology and concrete that lead us to shun down upon nature.

all of these things calcify our pineal gland and blocks our intuition from growing. blocks us from having a GOD felt consiousness.

w out the pineal gland you mind as well become a zombie w fairytale beliefs , not standing for anything. The bible says the world will be given to the wicked, It makes sense we aren't taught what should naturally be taught and past down generations, why? because it would only drive us to find purpose and fufill gods doings

Devil knows what hes doing.

Robert187 on May 11, 2016:

Nothing you say makes sense your trying to relate the third to what other religions believe. The third eyes God talks about its the holy spirit its when you accept jesus christ as your lord and savior and you seek answers through him.

Kaseem on April 13, 2016:

John 10:34 Are ye not Gods. The bible also says "slaves obey your masters as you would God." But guess what there is no slave here.

Kaseem on April 13, 2016:

Are you kidding. We dont know right from wrong? Its not for us to know what the purpose of our third eye is? Why? Why the big secret? I ll tell you why. Its because people like you dont want us to use our true power. Thats why. What you are saying is no more true than that picture of a white jesus you have on this page. The game is up. We know that ministers etc... have been lieing to us this whole time.

Michelleh85 on January 05, 2016:

My third eye was opened it was crazy I was reading my bible cover to cover I was reading about 4 or 5 chapters a day. And I had pain on top of my head and my forehead tingling seeing number sequence every time I turned around. I walked into speedway and I no more than looked up a demon possessed man ran was tripping over himself trying to get away from me.

Mon'shae on December 10, 2015:

Wow! Good article... On November 6, 2015 around 9pm my third eye opened. I was so scared and spooked out because i thought i was going to die. My awareness was all the way up and my heart just starting beating super fast. I got scared and ran into the bathroom and got onto my knees and started praying because the way i felt was unreal. I prayed and prayed to the Father in Jesus Name......then all of a sudden i broke down and cried and stood up and just started to Thank Jesus because i feel like at the moment in time God actually heard me and he was there to save me. Everything around me felt different, i looked at my clock and it happened to be 9:22pm. Then all of a sudden, it's like my third eye closed. That was the most scariest experience of my life. Every since then my third eye has not opened back up. I don't know what it was but i Thank the Father in Jesus Name for being there for me.

Guest on November 24, 2015:

This post is very intriguing! I recently came to Christ this past year after being raised Jewish( mom Jewish dad catholic)and many posts here consider one particular persons opinion on their interpretation of scripture. Prior to coming to Christ I considered myself spiritual, as I'm a strong empath have always had a great deal of spiritual discernment since I was a little kid and had friends that were psychics and healers. In the last six months I have read through the bible and am currently reading through it again, have been doing a great deal of research and am challenged at times by different beliefs of different churches. I have met many Christians who consider psychic occult but because they use the term prophesy it is ok, although from both my non Christian psychic friends as well as Christian friends who can prophesy they see and hear similar things. I also have met people with hard core thoughts including pastors that have beliefs because of their interpretation of the bible and have judgements but still celebrate Christmas... Which my bubble was burst recently because I found out that A) Jesus was actually born in September , B) Christmas was a holiday adopted by Christians so they could convert pagans and let them keep their holiday( the now Christmas was the last day of a weeklong festival of lawlessness marked by rape, drinking, food gorging, etc) and also a celebration of a different God maybe sun god I don't remember)C) bible says not to chop down and decorate trees as the pagans did ... All of these pastors, people who judge others, "REAL" Christians are not doing what God says to do and they participate in the traditions of man instead of listening to the word of God...and the excuse is well what is important is that even though it started that way what is important is that we remember Jesus... No that is an excuse... "Real Christians" and those in positions of power are refusing to follow the Bible because it is how they were raised and they like Christmas (no other Christian holiday is in Bible and is man made tradition)because it is pretty and you get cool gifts(I like that part too) but it is so hard as a new Christian being guided by people who listen to some parts of bible but twist others to fit them... Just like how it says women should not teach but women and children and there are tons of female pastors( and I'm a female all for equality but the bible is clear about what it says)and when I ask they say well... Those were the times that's not how it is today I'm like well... Then can't anyone say being against homosexuality(I have gay friends) was just for the times etc. I'm super frustrated being a new Christian and hearing so many people say the bible is the only true word of God but pick and choose what they follow.

Servant on October 22, 2015:

Matthew 10:24: "the disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord."

This is not a good rebuttle for not using our third eye. By using my third eye and using light work, I do not think I am above my Lord. For he is the light within me. And Jesus said we shall do these things even greater.

Kuropriest on September 27, 2015:

Hey dude, third eye is a natural ability of human from God himself.

In 2 Kings 2:11-12 (MKJV) And it happened as they went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire [came], and they separated between them both. And Elijah went up in a tempest into Heaven.

And Elisha saw, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen! And he saw him no more. And he took hold of his clothes and tore them in two pieces.

If that what Elisa saw not in third eye state, then he cant see that chariot of fire suddenly apperance. Because our naked eye cant see the "unseen" if God didnt reopen our third chakra. Before Christ exist there's already have a sign of third eye in old testament more than that verses. Then why did you deny if God itself to reopen it ? Thats our natural gift before we fall in sin. Just let God reopen it through prayer and you will know what I am talking about.

Brandalynn on September 27, 2015:

You say exactly what God means, when your eyes become one, when it is your mind that you see with..that's exactly what the third eye is.

carl on September 11, 2015:

I have been searching high and low as a Christian to find answers as to whether or not I should awaken my pineal gland. I find so many different conflicting versions of peoples interpretations of the Bible. I only made this comment because reading your article, though interesting, I found it confusing. I know you had stated in his article that you yourself headed attempted or had opened your third eye and found it to be a mistake. I'm not sure when this article was wrote, but on March 30th of 2012, you were fascinated at an individual's intellect and study of the Bible. you made positive comments on his article about the wrestling God awakening Jacobs pineal gland. Your comments on his article were completely contradictive to your article. Which belief do you have on the subject? I am struggling with the choice of to awaken or not. I was raised Southern Baptist, but am an non-denominational Christian.

Love is light on June 28, 2015:

In my perspective, God does not frown upon enlightenment and the third eye at all but does on those who do not believe that he has came in the flesh as Jesus. Rev. 8 & 9 explains how Gods chosen ones will bear the mark on their foreheads and in the time Gods wrath will not harm them. But like you have said if a man that has his third eye open and denies God will not reap the benefits, but he who believes in Christ and meditates with no lust for power or to be more that who he is but to become peace will receive enlightenment and enter into the gates of heaven. We all need to understand that all the apostles were mystics. They meditated with 12 essential oils that had very spiritual properties and mainly had the ability to open their third eye. These oils help them overcome saten and sin and enabled them to come closer to God. Also these apostles were Jews (not the Jews we have today) but very spiritual Jews. They studied the kabbalah which explains how the apostles like Moses, Ezekiel and Daniel used this form of meditation to connect with God. They believed in the ten aspects of God which equals one and if you look at the Jewish chakra system it is very similar to the Buddha system of the 7 chakras. The Biblical apostles are just like the Buddhist. Don't forget that these apostles believed that God made everything come into being with 7 vibrations and they are the 7 base letters of the Jewish alphebet, similar to the 7 muddras of the Buddhist tradition and they call it the vibrations of the universe and life. All religions are connected and there's nothing we can do about it. Jesus Christ is just the missing link and God in the flesh.

It is written in the book of psalm saying we are gods also master (Jesus) also make it clear in John that is it not written ye are gods, as far I know God Almighty made us in his image then we are gods

jeremiah clark on May 28, 2015:

i am a man with the last name of a father whose not my own. adam and eve ate from the tree of knowledge. woman child birth was established through violation of god and man accepting sin into the spirit god provided by eating fruit from the tree of knowledge. eventually the sin was greatly scared into most of man soul. god sent a flood and established a covenant to not destroy the world again by water. then god sent his son in the flesh. when Jesus died all of man would be saved if they believe that he is the son of god in flesh.........i believe the things that we could do before we were born into sin are available to us after we accept Jesus Christ as the true savior and son of god in flesh. i most definitely believe Jesus is the son of god and my savior. i believe that i am a man created in gods image and with the tree of knowledge fruit still in me even though i am saved through the power of Jesus,,,,,God can see what he has created through our third eye witch gives us the ability to fight demons knowing was is true and righteous witch is god almighty and the spirit he put in us that we can listen to know from right or wrong..........

i am not into this third eye stuff but through pain and awareness of someone i love and the demon that is in them and has consumed them and through the love of Jesus Christ he has opened my eyes completely and equipped me with the power to defend my spirit against these demons attacking my spirit.

Chuck on April 11, 2015:

Considering you said within your own understanding proves you're looking at it in a twisted way yourself.the pineal gland was in fact created by god and in some of his teachings he says to meditate.but to meditate upon his word and him. I agree some meditation is bad like yoga.but the bible has been affected by man and the church that decided what stories to publish in the bible we have access to today. I'm not the smartest person to exist but I know we exist Beyond what our society wants us to believe.god made us in his image so don't you think we would have more effect on the world further than a physical is only evil if that's what you're seeking.if you're using it to connect further with god then wouldn't it be your passages you've posted.don't forget the one you've left out.accept the lies were fed.i believe you yourself said that's a sin. I might be wrong but at least I realize that because I see something a certain way doesn't make it right.just as the bibles been manipulated by the Catholic Church.not to mention the burning of all bibles that preceded it.god is forgiving and understands as humans we aren't perfect.but to call the third eye blasphemy would be blasphemy in itself because The Lord god our savior put the pineal gland in our brain for a reason.enjoy the fluoride that has dulled yours along with millions.he speaks of great men being sent dreams to further their beliefs and to show them things.i don't know the word exactly but u can't deny that it's fact.what has man discovered ,that the pineal gland is responsible for our dreams so that would mean if sought with good intention The Lord would communicate.the fluoride were fed in everything we eat hinders that.god isn't one sided an it says he's understanding and knows the flesh is weak. We can't base our beliefs on what we see but what we feel as right.god didn't give us intuition by accident.ive had god given blessings come from intuition that protected me from horrible happenings.accept that we don't always know and we can't see what isn't there.but u know yourself you can feel can't see god so it would be what,a feeling that he's there.a comfort from his hand and nurturing being.the Holy Spirit is with those who seek it.its not something you seek with worldly comprehension

Jah Rastafari from Sydney, Australia on February 13, 2015:

I believe God put the third eye there so we can be spiritually enlightened through him and him alone. See what I noticed is the more I have faith in God and obey his every command the more I receive messages from him. He is constantly in communication with me. I feel that it is through the third eye that we grow spiritually but only through our beliefs in God. Not through forcing it open. That would be evil. Only God can open our third eye. When you have real beliefs in God the more your third eye will become open. You will see the world more clearer. You will feel the light. Happiness will flood you. God regularly speaks to you in many different ways. He is in constant touch with you when you love and obey him to the best of your understanding. The third eye should only be opened by God and will slowly decalcify as you grow spiritually. All you can do is obey God and love and respect Jesus as your saviour to your fullest potential and you will see the difference. Everything in the world becomes clear. Television, illuminati, the ways the world controls us. Not everyone can reach this. Many people that do not even believe in God are forcing open there 3rd eye and they see bad things because they have done the wrong this. They are not full of light and they have no protection from God.

Joe on January 27, 2015:

Maybe Jesus saved us from having to deal with our natural power by being crucified. He saw our path was ruined from the time evil was born at the forbidden fruit tree. Maybe our path is to realize the sin in the world so that we can be brought back to the metaphysical state throughout the masses. The secrets have been hidden to only be discovered when we are ready to find them. Maybe the time has come.

Jugc on January 12, 2015:

There is a reason why the third eye is an eastern believe, waste not your time trying to explain. Notice that the bible is being used as facts with evidence. Thus making this a pointless argument. "In the land of the blind, the one eye man is king" love and light!

Rebecca on December 11, 2014:

Ok so people are confused by the 3rd is the 6th chakra ..the 7th chakra is the one that connects with your if that is what you want to do don't even worry about the 3rd eye and learn about the 7th

Lee on December 10, 2014:

Ok I have a question...I really need a young child I could see certain things..ghosts..spirits I guess.. I am sane I promise...I also had terrible lucid dreams. I was told were night terrors.. I didn't try to open this door I was a child, my sister can account for seeing some of the same "spirits" ....does this not tie in with the Pineal glad. I should add when we would see these things we lived in a very old house and my father a Minister. Ive always been confused by this...

pabie on September 23, 2014:

hi bettybb. can i get your personal email address.. i'd really like to talk to you.

Jakarri Demery from Shreveport, La on September 23, 2014:

I don't get the article. Why would you even write an article about a subject, then say don't do it, it won't get you in to heaven. If any of you want to know about the third eye and other mysteries, get the BOOK OF SECRETS BY OSHO. This book attempts to break down every thing from the third eye to relationships without being bias. The only catch is this. It is a book based on experimentation. It is not to be used for logical arguments as done here in this article.

Lucas on September 18, 2014:

Fantastic article here! Thank you very much for taking the time to address this. I have been struggling with these questions and contemplating many things about the third eye, "pineal gland" I see the symbology in so many ancient cultures and in today's society and I have been intrigued to know more after hearing several first hand experiences of taking DMT and the undeniable real spiritual experiences from those individuals. But this is exactly what I needed to read and it spoke straight to my heart and gave me the answer I knew in my heart to be true anyway. Our relationship with God is through Christ and him alone. Knowing that sin comes from within me how foolish it would be for me to open the gate to the free roaming spirit realm knowing God has closed it for a reason. I believe it should be opened only by God and by his will and that would probably only happen at my time of death when he is in complete control of my soul and where it is going. Thanks again this is an awesome piece of writing.

cdavis on September 14, 2014:

You said why would we have to open the third eye to reach nirvana and it not already be open? Your answer is that the harsh chemicals that is in our foods and toiletries that we put into our body has closed what was originally open. Which means you have to re open it. That means the third eye is natural and not sorcery. Deep thinking is not sorcery, spells are. Meditation to open the third eye is just cleaning the gunk off (what human works made) of what God gave us.

Ashley on September 11, 2014:

I love everyone's comments. But when you go through your 'awakening stage' however that may have went, what did you think. I simply told myself that no one can enter my mind that way and control my thoughts but GOD. I had never experienced something so real, so strong.... the first time I experience that kind of power, And became aware of my third eye, that I have never read about, thought about, or knew of its existence, you expect me to believe that it's of darkness??? No. If you use the knowledge you've been given and ignore it and believe it is evil, then it is or becomes darkness, and vice versa. The bible was written by man. Yes the writers were led by the spirit, but there is also other hidden knowledge outside of the bible. Hidden to keep us in a state of confusion.... first comes knowledge. Pray for understanding...

Kerimac on September 02, 2014:

I would like to personally talk with Joseph Daniel. Do you have other information available in regards to Christianity and the third eye. I am researching and your post intrigued me as it relates more to what I think.

bettybb on August 14, 2014:

Several years ago, I discovered that when I close my eyes, I have visions of other worlds, even heaven, and can see deceased loved ones, and many other amazing things. I can even solve crimes. I merely concentrate and I see what I'm seeking. These images form on the back of my lids, are sort of like watching a movie. They are about 99% accurate--the only inaccuracy is in me trying to figure out what I saw and what it means.

I don't know if this is what you consider to be "The third eye," but I don't believe it's evil but a God-given ability. I'm a Christian, very pious, and I only use this ability for good purposes. For instance, a friend was distraught after her dog died recently, and I was able to take a look and see that her dog was in a beautiful place. This was very meaningful to her and eased her grief.

I've told very few people about my ability as I don't think many would understand.

I also have very strong empathic abilities and can sense feelings from a photo, a place, person, etc. This too, I believe, came from God, and I'm sure he has a purpose in giving me these abilities.

Many of the saints had psychic abilities, so I'm not sure why so many believe that such abilities come solely from Satan and are evil.

Lulu on July 01, 2014:

The third eye can be used for both good and evil, the user of it has that choice. Spirits in human form have been disconnected from the knowledge we have gained throughout our various past lives. Think about it, do you really think one would be able to transcend with only one life lived? Not only have we forgotten the knowledge but we have also been disconnected from our innate abilities of balancing our 7 chakras ( which are all equally important, no chakra holds more power than the next for without one you cannot have any). And other abilities such as esp, clairvoyance, etc. In Sahaja Yoga, each chakra has a presiding deity. Can you guess what place the Lord Jesus Christ and Mary have? The centre of the Anja chakra (third eye). Why would only one chakra be Evil or Satanic? That Doesn't make any sense.

Also, if the third eye is of Satan then why do other religions or forms of spiritual practice use it?

And to answer the question above. To my understanding, The pine cone is to show that they have fully opened their third eye (and other chakras) and are enlightened. I wouldn't be too sure if the same applies for the vatican however since they deny or simply ignore eastern philosophy. (Or practice Satanism themselves) who knows.

James Thompson on June 25, 2014:

Can you answer me why the pope has a pine cone on his staff and why there is a huge pinecone in the Vatican courtyard. Pinecone=Pineal glad. Can you also tell me why Buddhas head is shaped like a pinecone and also Krishna's head. Why all the ancient pic's of diff GOD's carried pinecone staffs.

Jeremy Kinlaw on June 12, 2014:

Dude You Just Watered Down The True Teachings to Topical Religion Ideas. You don't Think Jesus Was Any Deeper in His Knowledge Than This. He understood the energy fields of out bodies and use this knowledge. Knowledge is like a hammer. You can build a house with a hammer or you can kill someone with a hammer. Its the wheeler of the tool. Why would Jesus not speak on something that is a spiritual gateway. Of course he was talking about the Ajna Chakra Third Eye.

brynatoliver on instagram on June 09, 2014:

christians open your eye can't you see the time is near.?

guest on June 09, 2014:

10 months ago I began learning of what some call the third eye. Upon learning that this "eye" was actually based on an organ in the brain (which to ME made it scientifically plausible) and was the key component to Buddhism, Hinuism, Free Masonry, Illumanati, ancient Egypt, etc., my curiosity sky rocketed. I studied how to open in it, and practiced in my spare time.. Long story short I began experiencing lucid dreams... When I would close my eyes I could simply think of a song and audibly hear it for one example. I was fearless for I KNEW (not necessarily saying it does just at the time) my fate rested in the decisions I make. I composed thy (the eye) path. It's hard to explain but when the whatever you want to call it consumed my life I had a psychotic break. I overdosed and my heart stopped. I grew up in the church and was saved when I was 6 years old. I saw the light if you want to call it that. I cannot fully explain what I have seen. What I have felt. What I KNOW. I am struggling trying to correlate this with my savior Jesus Christ. This series of videos has helped

guest on June 03, 2014:

Jus wanna know how is blasphemy if calls god calls the devil the god of this world..and turn around say if your eyes are open u be one to jus wonderin

DR. Leonel on June 02, 2014:

The bible states clearly that there were seers in those days. Seers are not other than people, men and women who have wake up there third eye. With the fall of Adam and Eve, the third eye gradually have gone into a sleep state that we today called imagination. And not only the third eye but many other senses that we have today in a small amount. The primordial men were created with 12 senses and not five. Those 12 senses has nothing to with witchcraft. All the seers in the bible condemns witchcraft.

Amandeep26 on May 27, 2014:

First of all Christ clearly says in the bible "ye are all Gods of the most High". Since we are made in God's image we have the tendency to become one with the Lord. All holy scripture have referred to the third eye that is where the soul merges into the Father. The Bible, the Guru Granth Sahib, The Bhagvad Gita and in other Holy scriptures many saints and mystics have had a real life experience when they opened their third inner eye and realized God. Christ have even referred to the divine sound as Word or Logos. In John Christ said "first was the word and the word was with God and the word was God". Christ has called it word, Guru Nanak, Krishna have called it shabad, Buddha called it Tao, Muslims called it Kalma, all of these words have one meaning which is "sound" that comes from the Lord's kingdom. The divine melody is endless and us our souls have the capability to listen to the divine sound and merge back into it through meditation on God's word.

JOSEPH DANIEL on May 21, 2014:

I have a deep personal relationship with Christ. I speak in pentecostal tongues advancing from the belly to the heart level ( Beginners will start at the belly level). I can see Auras via my natural eye, it just needs practice. The Third eye has two parts the lower part ie between the eyebrow and the upper part ie the forehead. The Third Eye is used to see visions in the Christian context. It is also used to confirm to us christians that we can see the Lord ( ie in the form of a man in robes) or in the form of a bright light in the forehead while we pray and worship him. The Third eye can also be used to see other deites ocassionaly. The reoson its discouraged is for a young beleiver it may provide an opening for deception by Satan, that's why in its natural state tha Lord has closed the Third Eye ( not active). We as Christians who want to open our third eye must ask the Lord Jesus to open it for us and place its use under his control. There is enough biblical account of the Third Eye and its usage in the Old Testament ( just do a search on the word eye in the bible and read it up ). The danger of the Third Eye is not the Third Eye itself but the people who teach others to open their Third Eye and propel them into occultism. The main fault lies with Christian Elders who do not teach the beleivers about the Third Eye and its opening and its usage, which is all for the Glory of the Lord Jesus. Because of this deficit in the Christian Community many young Christians are compelled to learn the opening via Non-Christian Religions. Christian Mystics and Christian Spiritual people are mostly aware of its usage but tend not to share this knowledge to the masses.

Good and evil the ying yang right studie it.

Anyway even though u think That your third eye is evil, it is for some and not for others. For example when u do something u know is wrong u hate yourself for it. When u do something good u may not feel anything. (Being natual not feel good about it) but when u know u did something good and u know its good you praise yourself. Same thing open your eye and be light think good thoughts and see not only light but beautiful creature and other light beings. Open your eye and darkness bad thoughts create ugly creatures and bad thoughts about yourself. It's a tool us it the way u want

GGP on May 15, 2014:

Ok are world is filled with people that believe in satan. {USA Cough}*

florid kills the Third eye so it is closed and also the Bible says most people wont go to heaven if most people believe that its evil and wont open it then they are the ones that are going to hell. am I right? second thing why are the USA trying so hard to push florid in are drinking water. Don't be the fool that ends up in hell. that is my appinion.

Meee on April 27, 2014:

Focusing your mind on God is like focusing your true self or 3rd eye on light, since God is light. Right? It does state in the Bible that you have the powers of God imbued within you.

idk on April 13, 2014:

I'm still pretty unsure about what is and is not allowed as commanded by God and Christ, but from what I do understand maybe its something like this: We were all created with the penial gland, yes. We all CAN hone it and figure out how to use it if we want, yes. Does that mean God WANTS us to do it? Maybe not. Yes he made us this way but we are supposed to be exercising free will in following his commands. An example would be; God created us all with genitals and human libido. Does that mean we CAN indulge in unrestrained fornication? Yes. Does it mean he wants us to? No. I know that may be a childlike way of looking at it, but from what I'm gathering so far maybe that's why we have the ability but it never really talks about it.

I AM on April 10, 2014:

In regards this: As Jesus stated in Matthew 10:24: "the disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord." To try to be God, or to claim you are, is blasphemy and can be considered blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which is the unforgivable sin (Matthew 12:31).

I consider that what Jesus stated has a more profound meaning. The disciple in this case stand for the reactive mind, and the master stand for the Heart, also known as The Third Eye. The servant stands for the lowerself [reactive mind] and the Lord stands for the I AM [ 3rd Eye ] In ancient Egypt the 3rd Eye is known as Djed-Eye, which is aware of the lower self - animal aspect on humans. "One that is not under control of himself is nobody".

About the unforgivable sin, I consider it a tremendous contradiction, if we consider that God is Love and that God has unconditional Love for his children. If it happens that in on hand God Loves unconditionally his children, and on the other hand there is an unforgivable sin, this means God is dual, and as far as I know God is One.

In regards this: I'm made by God and in His image, not to actually be Him. Means that the lower self, the reactive mind[the reactive mind is an illusory entity who "exists" according to external circumstances] it is made by God and his image not actually be Him, in that sense sounds obvious, but I as a human being Am God also, since the Father and I are One and the same. There is no separation, because separation equals illusion and I AM Real, I Exist, I AM.

In regards: "The light of the body is the eye": if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. What this statement is saying is so simple: Be Present and your whole body shall be full of light, because the whole body structure is made of light including the bones, the flesh and the blood. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. This means that if an individual is not aware of his or her reactive mind-lower self, that individual is not under self control hence it seems he or she is full of darkness. So when one is not present, aware of himself one experiences "Hell" because it is the reactive mind[Satan, which means whiplash. From ancient Egypt Sat-ahn. Which stand for Typhoon or whiplash] but if the individual is Present, aware of himself, as a single eye, he will experience "Heaven".

Stay as a single eye [ single I - the 3rd eye - the I AM THAT I AM] not a single eye equals the many I's - the reactive mind.

Thomas on February 27, 2014:

I believe what you have to say and state with facts, but i am not trying to speak blasphemy against God or anything, but why is it there if it is not to be used? I know jusus said to not take part in any sorcery or witchcraft, but i just want to know why. Thanks in advance.

omar on January 24, 2014:

The way I see it the bible has many scriptures and teachings that can be used to defend the revealing of esoteric knowledge but I believe that it just confirms (for me at least) the existence of the one true God and of Jesus being our path and light to eternal life with our creator. ....Satan has lied to man since the beginning and continues to convince mankind they can become gods from knowledge and technology and self worship. ....but God doesn't need us to attempt to find him through secretive and complicated means when all he asks of us is to have faith in his power and presence no questions or doubts and ive found that he blesses me with a wisdom that is aware and able to discern the big picture of all that exists in this dying world as Satan runs it into hell taking many lost sheep to pay with their death as the wages for their blasphemy of the Holy Spirit....false light looks attractive in this dark world to most maybe but true children of the light can know the difference.

Rick Bailey (author) from Delaware on January 19, 2014:

That is a wonderful debate, and point to make. Why is it there, then? Asking that question dives into another discussion that requires spiritual discernment from God to understand. Not the "universal god / energy force" but the same God, YHWH, or better yet: I AM THAT I AM, which means "I Exist." Not the false "god" that satan has deceived the world with. We cannot, as humans, determine what is right and what is wrong. When we were original, we probably used these things, but were infected with sin.

I was just talking to a friend who recently came to Christ from "general spirituality" about my theory (and that's all it is) that we used all of those things but when we accepted sin into ourselves we were disconnected and it became forbidden knowledge. IF these things were made by God, to use by us to reach God, then why wouldn't we naturally be "enlightened?" Why would we have to open our third eye / pineal gland, and reach nirvana, if it is our "original state?" That does not make sense, unless we had some type of "falling out."

Associated with the pineal gland are psychic powers, this is a fact. Due to our sinful nature, we abuse psychic powers, this too is a fact that I am well experienced with. People begin to develop god complexes and not only deny the Father, GOD, but consider themselves as one. This is a major trick satan has placed on us. Enlightenment does not get you to God, but the wilderness of consciousness that is ruled by satan. It is not a matter of debate to put the two "beliefs" beside each other and see that one explains the other, even in the bible. satan rules "the air" which is referring to the spiritual world, astral plane, where you find what? Demons. Biblical demons, you meet biblically denounced "gods" throughout esoteric practices.

There is only so much one can understand relying on satan's knowledge unless they receive discernment through the Holy Spirit, or God's external spirit. If you are to use the bible and what Jesus said to defend your claim, you must use all of it. The bible and GOD absolutely prohibits all sorcery, which is in the exact same game field as all spiritual matters regarding esoteric things, such as the pineal gland. Jesus also states to walk the straight and narrow path, which is His Word, which is the only true Way. Seers in the bible, Godly ones, use God's external Spirit (Holy Ghost) to perform as I call them, mini-miracles.

This is why a Christians tests a spirit to see if they are of God, with the Spirit of God. The bible also talks about other magicians and sorcerers, NOT of God, so who else? satan. The fact that we must TRY to pursue enlightenment, travel to the spiritual realm, activate our chakras and kundalini proves that it is now an unnatural things, since if it was natural, it would already be in place. Jesus never once, and I repeat never once, told us to go any other way than His Way to perform the things He did. The common rebuttals of manuscripts and the bible being changed to be some controlling religion distracting us from "the universal truth of consciousness" are destroyed by carbon dating of found manuscripts.

Any true Christian also knows that he is not religious, and that religion is comprised of control and ignorance, with no due offense. I do not have much time to speak on this, and feel as if it was God's Hand to move me to speak to you my friend since, evidently, I haven't been able to be on here for almost two months.

I would absolutely love to speak on this matter more with you, as I too was a seeker for the Truth, regardless of what is was, and have come to it. My EMail is and I would truly appreciate speaking to you. You seem like you are an open minded person and I would love to connect the pieces together and show you why and with what back up I speak of the things I do, in logical, spiritual, and evidential proofs. I do hope all is well, continues to be, and I will pray for you.


The seeker on January 15, 2014:

The Gland is there for a reason...God placed it there and everything God creates is perfect is it not?

surely it is up to us to not only explore but determine its use; to seek & establish a divine connection to God in his wholeness and truth?

what about the seers in the bible??? i.e Gad?...there is a spiritual connection truly missing in this day and age, back then they knew/were in tune with/practiced something we are definitely blind too.

I can't help but feel there are things minscontrued keeping us in this forever state of lingo 'hoping' & 'waiting'; did Jesus himself say 'he that believes in him shall do what he has done and greater works'...

Theres a spiritual 'something' missing; it also feels like the moment we begin to touch on spiritual matters (i.e pinael gland/meditation) its automatically deemed as demonic or not of God which i find odd seeing that we ourselves are spirit beings Created by GOD a spirit! so should we not be operating and venturing into the spiritual realm as the norm anyway?

As i stated when starting The Pineal Gland is there for a reason...God placed it there FOR A REASON...maybe justtt maybe that reason is as a vehicle to a direct & absolute connection to God and to spiritual state of living

Tip on December 28, 2013:

The third eye is the penial gland. Why would we calcify a gland in our brains. If god created us, he put that gland there for a reason. Why would we make toothpaste and water with fluoride which directly calcifys a that gland..
