Third Eye Sight vs the Eyes of Your Heart
(Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow)
“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (NIV, emphasis mine)
The third eye is also called the mind’s eye, eye of time, or the inner eye. It is a mystical, esoteric ‘invisible’ eye which is said to provide vision, sight, and perception beyond ordinary sight. It is claimed that you can open your third eye by focusing on your third eye chakra, meditating, choosing the right surroundings, flooding it with light, emptying your mind or focusing only on a meditation object, picking a mantra like “um”, and repeating until you “see something”. A list of reputed benefits to opening the third eye that new agers tout include: psychic abilities, telepathy, vivid/lucid dreaming, more effective astral projection, better sleep quality, enhanced imagination, enabled aura viewing, seeing spiritual guides, seeing energy, and seeing with eyes closed.
Some people describe seeing a ‘tunnel-like portal or worm hole’ inside their head. It can also feel like opening the ‘eyes of your imagination’, but often more vivid. Seeing with the third eye is often described in similar or same terms as those of us who see in the spirit, including a screen in your mind, or a projector screen that displays images several inches or feet out in front of you. The biggest difference is not so much how the third eye works in comparison to the eyes of the heart (spirit or eyes of understanding) so much as what people tend to see. In my experience, the third eye is much more prone to being deceived. I will talk in the next chapter about when I saw demons disguised as angels and how once you see that, as clear as anything I have seen in the natural, you will be very cautious about everything mystical! Some of the things the third eye sees, according to those who have experienced it, include seeing speed of thought, colors that don’t exist in the natural realm, images of aliens, spirit guides, demons, ascended masters, the astral plane, silver chords, and geometric and mathematical patterns, and psychedelic shapes.
People describe a sort of x-ray vision at times, seeing into things like bodies, souls and objects. They can often see things from the past, see into the future, and even into other dimensions and universes. Images seen can be digital, in cartoon form, solid, opaque, or felt and not seen at all.
If you have tampered with the new age, or invoked the opening of your third eye, I recommend going through the activation prayer in this chapter.
The biggest problem with third eye sight is that people often use it as a psychic gift, become mediums, and converse with beings that do not have their highest good, or Salvation, in mind.
Leviticus 19:31 “Don’t turn to psychics or mediums to get help. That will make you unclean. I am the Lord your God.”
There are about twenty-two verses that address psychics, mediums, and the tricks of the enemy. Scripture is clear that psychics are evil and an abomination to the Lord. We, as Believers, are not to mess with horoscopes, tarot cards, palm readings, initiating contacting deceased loved ones, or intentionally opening the third eye. The third eye can be an access point for the enemy, a satanic portal, or an opening to the astral plane and demonic realms. I have personally witnessed in the spirit (and natural) that when a person is hypnotized with a light machine, placed on the forehead, it created a spiritual portal through which demonic entities could more easily enter the mind. Flooding the third eye with light is another way it is said to be activated. The sixth chakra and kundalini awakening are tied to the serpent, and we need to flee. Although many people think seeing in the spirit and activating your third eye are the same, they are not! I also do not agree with many Christian’s teaching on “how to purify and activate the third eye.” God has clearly shown me the Eyes of the Heart and the Eyes of our Spirit man are the same, but the third eye is the counterfeit, occult, and easily prone to deception and seeing what the enemy wants you to see. Beware. [Example: April 20, 2014: Evangelist John Ramirez with Shannon Davis of Omega Man Radio, “How to Purify and Activate your Third Eye.”]
For further proof this is sourced in the occult, may be a demonic portal, and should be renounced, the third eye is called the All Seeing Eye in Freemasonry, Shiva in Buddhism, the Eye of Clairvoyance in Hinduism, and the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Osirius in Egyptian mythology. People who use the third-eye-sight are also often called seers, which is why I am starting with this complicated topic to make a clear differentiation. God commanded His people to be separate from the Egyptians’ practices. We see in the Word what happened when Moses and the Egyptian sorcerers both turned their staffs into serpents. Today’s Christians would have called Moses new age and demonic, surely. His intimacy and obedience to God was the secret to his operating in the spirit, in signs, wonders and miracles, and it is our key also.
Part of how I know how I see in the spirit is not via third eye sight, as I have never had any experiences similar to my new age friends. They are very, very different, with few similarities. I have seen demons disguised as angels, and universes, and dimensions, and heavenly realms and places, but I have never seen spirit guides, or animal spirits, or the astral plane, or aliens. So, my other dilemma was that I never did anything to activate my spiritual sight. I had to figure it out with the Lord. He is the one who called me a Seer, and confirmed it (see preface), so I am going to go with what He says about me, not what men say. I started seeing in the spirit about the same time I was saved, around age three, and continued off and on my entire life. ALL if it was God-initiated. I do not see anything unless He shows it to me. For some people they can control their seeing in the spirit, they can look to see, or turn it off, it just does not work that way for me. I have asked to see something, and the Lord has shown it to me. Taking a stance that all spiritual sight is ‘of the devil’ or ‘none of it is’, is dangerous.
One time, the Lord used an amazing Christian Missionary Alliance pastor in my life to help me when I shared with him things I was seeing in the spirt. He was gracious and did not rebuke me or condemn me like others have, but he instead was used by God to deliver a timely and profound message in my life. He told me a story I had never heard before, although I have since then heard it many times. When the FBI want to spot counterfeit bills, they don’t go studying the counterfeit. They spend so much time handling real money, that when the counterfeit shows up, it is obvious. The next day another lady started to tell me this same story (confirmation). The Lord spoke to me and said, “Study me alone, I am the real thing”. Spend so much time in the Word, in the spirit, in prayer, in worship, in prayer, in fasting, in the Word, that the enemy just looks like plastic flowers when he shows up, and I am not talking about the ones that look real, I am talking about the cheap dollar store kind people put on tombstones. I will let the dead bury the dead, I am spending time with the Living God, who smells like flowers instead of Sulphur.
There is a saying circulating in charismatic church circles that we need to ‘redeem’ things for the Kingdom that the enemy has stolen, and that ‘God’s ability to protect us is greater than the enemy’s ability to deceive’. I both agree and strongly disagree with this statement. I think it is actually very dangerous doctrine, maybe even a doctrine of demons. We do NOT need to study the new age to understand God, or to redeem things that are lost. These attempts to redeem Yoga and things like Reiki are playing with abominations. We need to flee far from the enemy, and study only the original. YHWH, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God are perfectly capable of revealing what should be redeemed, and we need to spend so much time with them that the voice of the enemy or his liars is obvious. His tactics to deceive and thousands of years of practice often outperform our discernment, and we need to be continually plugged into the Source. Quit running to the new age to drag things out in an attempt to redeem them. Believers also need to ask the Lord directly if they are concerned with something spiritual that they think may be new age, it may instead be His original that the enemy has counterfeited. Remember, they often look the same. What source are you plugged into?
The bottom line for those who do not know Christ, is that accessing the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven is not permitted, including and especially inducing third eye sight.
Matthew 13:11: “To you is has been granted, to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them is has not been granted.”
In John 10:1, Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”
“Abba Daddy, I come boldly to your throne in humble repentance. I confess that I have gone to look for the original among the counterfeit. I repent for being a thief and a robber and trying to gain access to mysteries in any other way than through Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I will only come to the Father through Him from now on. I turn and look only to you. I accept you Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. I only want to seek Your face, Your will; I only want to do what I see you do, see what you show me, and say the words you put in my mouth. I repent for seeking spiritual things among the new age. I repent for trying to open my third eye. As an act of my will I declare it closed in Jesus’ name, and seal it with salve, oil of Joy, and the Blood of the Lamb. Let me gaze on no unclean thing. Remove all scales, all veils, that hinder me from becoming like a little child and seeing the Kingdom. I ask Jesus to forgive my sins, all my iniquities; I receive His payment, His blood sacrifice on the cross. I denounce satan and all of his deceptive practices. I wash my eyes, all of them, body, soul and spirit, in the living water that proceeds from the throne of grace, and cover them with the Blood of the Lamb. Purify my eye gates, wash them clean. [You can even wash water over your eyes and forehead as a prophetic act] I ask that any deceivers be judged in your courts and sent where you will. Your will be done in me Lord, your Kingdom come! Send your guardian angels around me, around my heart, mind, soul, spirit. Lead me not into to temptation, deliver me from evil and deception. I repent, I confess, I turn, and I will clean my house [physical dwelling and body temple] of any ungodly thing, all idols, all gods, and replace in those rooms Your Word, your Spirit, ceaseless prayer, worship, and I will magnify Your name alone. I repent for seeking the signs and wonders and not the Giver of the signs. Forgive us for being a wicked generation and let us only seek You, intimacy with You, and obedience to You. In Jesus’ precious Name and Blood, Amen.”
