Can Reiki Open Third Eye Chakra?

Opening the Third Eye Chakra! 

The third eye is also known as the inner eye. It is the sixth chakra in the Kundalini chakra system. In Sanskrit, it is known as the Ajna Chakra. With the opening of the third eye you become capable of seeing and sensing even those objects, events, people, energies, etc. which are at distant locations. The third eye is situated in the fore head, in the region between two eye brows (glabella). According to the Sanskrit Epics, Lord Shiv has a fully active third eye. By practicing Reiki in daily life you can open your third eye or the Ajna chakra. This chakra is related to the function of the Pineal gland. The opening of the third eye improves the function of the Pineal gland.
