    Opening the Third Eye

    Post  Lynn on Sun Feb 07, 2010 2:07 am

    Hello
    There are many lessons out there for opening the Third Eye, I find many are complex and hard to do without being Guided via a tape or someone. For all that is not preferable of possible. This one I have used and it be very simple.

    Seeing COLORS
    With colors lik with all things there be a energy to them. One can use them one at a time or in layers or even mixes.

    Prepare like one would for any meditation
    Find one's place of quiet and get comfortable
    One can close one's eyes or leave them open ( if open I recommend a blank screen in front of one )
    Settle one's mind and body
    Breath ( three to four breaths in and out work well) Point to ponder in too deep and heald too long one gets light headed and dizzy) Or Hyperventilate
    Focus the mind on the window just behind ye's forhead. Where the Third Eye be.
    Keep this focus for several minutes til one feels it start to open
    First time out look for a single colour
    Be patinet takes practice.
    Once one is satisfied stop.

    From this first step on can change it up to see other things. Many report seeing orbs or balls of Light or Triangles ect. Once one gets comfortable with seeing colour and shapes one can move forward to bring in one's Guides or to bring in questions one has.
    If asking a question its best to keep it to a very base level of YES or NO to start. Keep the question simple to something one has the right to understand. Too one has to have pateints and learn to trust in that inner voice or Gut feelings.

    A very basic one I was taught donkeys years ago was to get into a meditative state as you describe and visualise the third eye as a tightly closed lotus flower, really tightly closed like a bud, as you are visualising it watch the petals unfolding slowly until the flower is fully open, then when you want to close back down simply reverse it closing the petals back up ensuring it is a tight a bud as possible.

    You have to remeber its the command centre and we tell us things to make it happen.

    SO if you look at your eye, and relax, say to yourself I wish to rid myself of all thoughts feelings problems worries fears etc, and put ti in a box and throw it blow it etc. its goneeeeeeee

    Locate your third eye say it focus on it say it,

    Say I open my third eye chakra now, keep saying it ...................

    I cleanse my third eye chakra now, purfiy, balance etc, same for other chakras.

    I didnt do it just this way, I used mantras too, which I havnt lately, but Aum is the word mantra bij sound for it.


    also ground it lets the energy flow.


    Or imagine a purple glow or imagine it is a circle and make it spin more and more.

    Or imagine it as a spiral and its constantly spinning and your falling threw it but rather falling forwards threw it and it keeps spinng and your driving liek your drunk threw a spaceship threw it and gradually you sober up and can fly better. lol

    I don't wanna be rude to anyone... But, "opening the third eye"....

    What's the point of opening it when its already open?(My belief as I respect if you disagree)
    Just different because in different beliefs ther are 7 chakras and in others their are 5.

    And I believe we have 7 but they are already open, but its the fact that they need balancing out.

    hi auras,in my opinion a lot who are born spiritual,they can stay open to it...and everything runs smoothly..like it does for you...
    so when your closed to it...you have to balance the chakrras yes...and work on it to get back to what you knew....I forgot everything never bother about anything spiritual...until later in life,when I did have a speedy awakening..now after 15 yrs of learning knowledge....im getting were I want to be...
    happy helping others...helping animals..doing good in life..which ive always done....
    a lot of people I know are very open  and are very open to there gift,which came easy to them...
    I had to go thru massive trials in my life...and learnt a lot from this...as I got thru each trial...wont say what but I came out a stronger person....I love my life now.....cos your only 15..you have not been thru many trials in life....maybe you will have them to come.....or maybe you are a very old soul,and your on your last life....I don't know...

    do you have parents or grandparents who are very gifted to.maybe it was them that taught you the right way,and never hid the truth of life from you...I mean they were always positive to you,not negative.....:bfs: angel..

    No, none of the people in my family are gifted.

    But my last night is "McNaught"

    I've researched my last night and it turned out that their arelots of mediums with the last name as "McNaught". My family are quite skeptical but me

    Hi, erm my names not Jai, lol

    Jai Shree Radha Krishna is like saying Glory to Radha & Krishna in Hinduism. But its ok as its not the first time Ive had this. A depiction of them in my Avatar. They are Gods,

    I stil have to learn Yoga I wish to but I have a neck injury so its hard.

    Maybe you dont hear nothing when you meditate as its meditation time, it can put you off, but sometime sits good to be able to do it despite that.

    Its kinda like a button and after a while your just get use to pressing it at will from then on its like warp speed, lol.

    With have more than 7, lol. & are the biggest ones, but there are like quite a few basic ones. then hands, legs fingers, etc.......... every muscle has chakras thats how we move.

    The chakras are open ish, but not fully operating, activated etc.

    Eg an Orgasm is like activating the sacral chakra alot, a mass of energy, bliss enlightenment is that all over, 247, lol. Meditating is same on the chakra you do to, hense a good meditation on the sacral is close or better than an orgasm, although you can get close to this in main chakras.

    Which leads to another way or working on chakra, next time you have an orgasm record it and ask your higher self to do that for the other chakras, lol

    Its not the same but you get the picture mass of energy, It is probably possible to learn this for all chakras.

    Hi, angel.

    I've been interested spiritually asnce I was like 5 years age. My clairsentient ability started to take place when I lived in a haunted house, I knew someone was their, a man to be specific. About in his 40's. I was 5 so, I didn't really know what was happening.

    I started joining circle on monday and I'll be giving mediumship messages out in the circle, so its all good. I leave school in may, got exams in june. Then as a psychic-medium, am gonner make that as a carreer when I leave.

    I still remember all my experiences when I was young. Very amazing, my sister claims she sees spirits of a night. But she denies it when I ask her.

    In 10 years time am gonner teach my little cousin :giggles:

    The third eye is found above and between the eyebrows.  It is the 'organ' that we use to see with when our eyes are closed. If you close your eyes now and think of something simple like your front door and imagine opening the front door and going out. Can you see that with your eyes closed? That is a very simple task of your third eye without going into any development.

    Thanks for the information. I was interested in how I could open my third eye further as activity there has waned over the last year or so. Come to think of it, when I first started meditating I used to tell myself that I would see things if I focused on my third eye area, so maybe it is down to focus and intent.

    I will try this again when I meditate later.

    Thanks

    I'm in the same situation but there's only one way to find out and that is to do it. To know you'll see images of some kind, perhaps
    colours as Lynn says, and not to get too ambitious at first or raise your expectations too high.

    Trying to tell you what it feels like is like, say, trying to tell you what an apple tastes like.

    This is such a useful thread so thank you to all who have contributed to make the opening possible.

    All this third eye nonsense,will the real third eye please step forward?

    Originally the third eye was and still is "in the back of the head"
    And,I'm not interested in proving it,you wouldn't understand what I'm talking about,not if you think its in the front!...but,it is called the brow chakra, Mmmm,doesn't have that Sanskrit ring to it,does it,brow chakra.....


    My opinion
