Your sixth sense, or your third eye, is an energy center located between your eyebrows, and a little higher than the bridge of your nose. This energy is related to the pineal gland and it has also been linked to intuition and psychic ability. By learning to do a third eye meditation successfully, you can open up your subtle senses and view a higher-dimensional world and experience reality from a much deeper perspective.
Were you born with an active third eye?
Everyone is brought into existence with an active third eye that can witness the glory and power of the universe. You too were able to see life fully and appreciate its bounty and wisdom, but as you grew older, you were conditioned by your teachers, parents, peers, and others to cover this third eye with layers of confusions and illusions. As a result, your third eye was closed, and you are now left in the dark. But there is always a new and profound layer of consciousness waiting to be reopened and expressed through the energy center of your third eye.
How can you activate your third eye?
Yes, you can activate your third eye again through practicing awareness and meditation and we shall now get discover how. The best time to practice this meditation is right after you have woken up from sleep, so it could be at morning, or after you afternoon siesta. This is when your subconscious mind is most primed to enter an altered state. The reason being, at this time your brain already is in a very relaxed brainwave frequency, which can heighten your intuition and inner awareness. You can do this exercise in complete silence or you could utilize binaural beats to help deepen your state and enhance your meditation. Now follow the below given steps:
-Keep aside at least half an hour for your meditation.
-Switch off your phone and stay in a room where there is no distraction.
-Wear comfortable and loose clothing.
-Sitting in the lotus position is ideal, as it helps to align your chakras. However, if you cannot sit in a cross-legged position comfortably, then you may just lie down.
-Start to relax each muscle present in your body, beginning with toes, and going all the way up, until you reach your head.
-Imagine all your muscles, ligament, and bone relaxing.
-Now, you need to start practicing breathing meditation. Breathe smoothly, slowly, and deeply in and out of your nose.
-Feel the wave of calm energy covering your body.
-Slowly try to draw this energy right to the center of your head, between your eyebrows.
-Do not think about any image or process. Let go of any aversion or attachment, as if nothing matters.
-Feel yourself becoming lighter and lighter.
-Visualize a ball of white light revolving at the center of your mind.
-Observe as this ball expands, and accept its presence completely.
-As it keeps expanding, allow its glorious light to stream out through your forehead’s center.
-Let go of any thoughts, allow them to fall and rise as they occur.
-Allow the light in, and willingly see whatever you are being shown, be it through colors, information, or images.
If you want to connect with your spirit guide, this is the ideal place and time. You can call out, internally or vocally, but peacefully and calmly. You can recite like a mantra, and you will soon receive a positive response. You will understand when this response comes – in the form of a sensation, vision burst of energy or spontaneous thought.
Do not be shocked, as sudden movement or reaction can break your meditation. Stay calm and continuously allow yourself to sink deep into the moment.
You can intentionally ask your awakened third eye for an insight, information, or message, or you may just accept what is being shown in this beautiful experience. The experience might look just like a dream, but with time, you will be able to get familiar with such experiences and get a better and deeper understanding of your life, of your existence.
