Opening the Third Eye

The concept of  opening  the Third Eye is really about stimulating the pineal gland in the base of the brain. It is believed by some to be a dormant organ that can be awakened to enable “telepathic” communication and an awareness of things not perceived by the natural senses.

In the physical body the eye views objects upside down. It sends the image of what it observes to the brain which interprets the image and makes it appear right side-up to us. But the human body has another physical eye which ‘sees’ things, whose function has long been recognized by humanity. It is called the ‘Third Eye’ and like an eye, needs to be “opened”. It is long thought to have mystical powers. Many consider it the Spiritual Third Eye, our Inner Vision.

When the pineal gland awakens one feels a pressure at the base of the brain. This pressure will often be experienced when connecting to higher frequency. A head injury can also activate the Third Eye (Pineal Gland). Development of psychic talents has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision.

To activate the ‘third eye’ and perceive higher dimensions, the pineal and pituitary glands must vibrate in unison, which is achieved through specific meditation and relaxation techniques. When the right relationship is established between personality, operating through the body, and the soul, operating through the pineal gland, a magnetic field is created. The negative and positive forces interact and become strong enough to create a phenomenon known as the ‘light in the head.’

The first step in directing the energies in your inner system to  opening  the third eye, is visualization exercises. By focusing your mind on the midway point between the pineal gland and the pituitary, a magnetic field is created around the pineal gland. Your creative imagination will then visualize something and the mind’s thoughts which are energy, will give life and direction to what you visualize.

The third eye is an organ of the light body or energy body. When the third eye is opened it has access to the layers or dimensions of the soul. By the soul we mean the memories of the light or energy being within us. These memories contain the past, future and present dimensions of what is normally defined as time. The third eye is the gateway or portal to the dimensionality of space which may be described as space or time. You can enter through a portal to another dimension in order to travel. Many people have experienced this partially via dreams and visions.

Here is an exercise you can try.

Sit quietly clear your mind of diversions and clutter take a few slow deep breaths and start to focus on the screen in your mind.

Colours should start to come into view. Keep watching the colours relax and breathe deeply and slowly. The colours will now turn into a shape that you may or may not recognize.

If you do not see anything this could be because you are not relaxed or you are nervous. If this happens just go back and try again a little later in the day. Once you have connected with your third eye you will have a sense of floating in a sea of energy. When the third eye opens, the mind is flooded with light, insights, and inspiration. This is a very common meditation experience. It can happen gradually over time, or quite suddenly. If the third eye opens wide and it’s sudden, it usually occurs for a period of time, and then re-calibrates to a new aperture setting that is more open than before, but not wide open continuously.

Beginning mediators report all kinds of phenomenon, which aren’t really phenomenon, but rather the first  opening  of the inner senses: Visions, profound feelings and the smelling of scents that are not physically present.
