I received this question recently from a student, who asked why she feels tingling around her crown chakra and third eye chakra when she talks to her Spirit Guides, watches anything about mediumship, or meditates.

I experienced this phenomenon as well when I started to try to consciously communicate with my spirit guides a while back. For me, the tingling would manifest around my temples and forehead.

(Note – the third eye chakra is located in the area between your eyebrows, but it also encompasses the area around your eyes, forehead, and temples.)

Tingling around this area when you meditate, etc. can be one of two things:

  • It signals that your third eye is opening in that moment and being used. The third eye is the centre of our intuition and imagination. So activities such as meditation, visualisation, and intuitive development open up and ‘exercise’ your third eye chakra. If you are sensitive, you might feel the third eye chakra waking up – this happens especially when you are new to intuitive development, meditation or visualisation. You’re using your third eye chakra in a new way, and you are sensitive enough to feel the energy opening up.
  • If you feel tingling in an ongoing way when you communicate with your Spirit Guides, or do any activity which utilises the third eye chakra energy, then the tingling may be your spirit guides’ way of impulsing you. A way for them to say “hello, we are here” – it is a manifestation of your clairsentience.

Have you ever experienced this phenomenon? What does it mean for you?
