“Why is my third eye blocked?” a reader asked today. As usual, we’re here to help and we would like to answer this question.
Do your work shifts leave you feeling tired and irritable? If so, you need to be aware of the latest research. Your work shifts might be destroying your third eye.
We all know those people who handle shift work with ease. But for some of us, shift work is a nightmare. It feels like a constant disruption in your rhythm. It makes you feel like you can’t get grounded.
Personally, when I finish a night shift the sun feels like its burning my retinas out, and I’m so confused, time-wise, that I don’t know whether to grab breakfast or hit the sack (I usually end up snuggling my cat and bemoaning my work life).
But there’s good news. Research is currently surfacing. It shows that there is a genetic reason why some people can handle shift work where others can’t. Finnish researchers have found that a melatonin receptor gene influences tolerance to shift work.
This is the first time genetic factors have been taken into account when considering why some people cannot handle shift work. The study showed that a common variation in the melatonin receptor 1A gene is linked to job-related exhaustion by shift workers.
So what does that mean if, like me, you cannot handle shift work? Simple. It means you need to find a new job.
There is very little you can do to make shift work bearable. Either shift work suits you or it doesn’t.
And if shift work does not suit you, it might be very bad for your health.
Shift work disrupts the circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is a 24-hour cycle that tells our bodies when to sleep and regulates many other physiological processes. This internal body clock is affected by environmental cues, like sunlight and temperature.
The circadian rhythm is produced by the third eye, one of the most important parts of the body, spiritually speaking. The third eye is the seat of insight and wisdom.
Night shifts interrupt the normal functioning of the third eye and therefore disrupt your spiritual awakening and your insight and intuition. Yet another reason to consider changing your job and going off of night shifts.
The research, that was conducted by Professor Tiina Paunio, showed that some shift workers suffer from chronic exhaustion, which can cause serious health complications.
So that’s why your third eye is blocked. What do you do about it?
If you would like to unblock your third eye, I recommend the following.
Use the third eye meditation technique
This is one of the best things you can do if that third eye of yours is blocked. The meditation technique involves a special breathing technique that you do to relax, and you then ask your third eye to open. Take a look at my completet guide to the third eye opening meditation technique.
Use the Shambhavi Mudra
This is the oldest and probably the best way to open the chakra. It’s a very important mudra that is used in Hindusm, Buddhism and Yoga. Take a look my my guide to the Shambhavi Mudra.
