3rd Eye Meditation

Imagine what your life would have been like if you had kept your eyelids shut for your entire lifetime. Your eyes would have worked perfectly and yet your sense of vision would have gone to waste. Similarly, not using your 3rd eye is keeping you in the dark in relation to enjoying the wonders and wisdom of your sense of mystic sight.

Every one of us had our 3rd eye fully open when we were babies. We were effortlessly able to witness the glory of the universe from its subatomic nature to its multi-galactic infiniteness. Through conditioning by our parents, teachers, and peers, we started a process of covering our 3rd eye with layer after layer of illusion. As an example, let’s imagine that at one month of age we were laying in our crib looking at the paisley patterned dance of energy that life is. Our mommy stuck a stuffed doll in front of our face and said, “Look at the piggy, look at the piggy.” We then started the process of recognizing that particular shape and associating it with the label “pig”. We also might have been introduced to the concepts of color, texture, size, and other things. “Baby, look at how pink and fuzzy the nice little piggy doll is.” And this began our habit of replacing direct perception of reality with a perceiving, labeling, reacting physically, emotionally, and mentally process. And we went further and further away from an unfiltered pure experience of living life as it takes place. As we aged, we also added a thought analyzing method of judging, comparing, and commenting on every thing our senses brought our attention to, and we got less and less in touch with Now.

The result of this process is similar to putting shutters on a window. No light comes through and those within can only imagine what is on the other side of the shutters. Unfortunately, this really leaves us in the dark about what is real and what life is really about. Just as you can’t adequately describe an orange to anyone who has never seen the color orange, or has not tasted one, you cannot understand what a 3rd eye vision is like from reading about it, or hearing it described by someone who has them. You will have to experience it first hand. So, the experience of divine perception, astral sight, aura awareness, mystic vision, or whatever other esoteric label you put on it, will remain only a theory until a way is found to actually open the 3rd eye.

Every time you sit in meditation and do the 3rd eye technique, you remove one of the shutters covering your inner window of wisdom. It is often compared to peeling away layers of skin from an onion. This continues until there is nothing left. And in this No-thing, there is everything. And we return to the pure direct perception of the glory and wonders of the universe we beheld as a baby. But now, we have the understanding that only comes with maturity.

 

The 3rd Eye Meditation Technique

To begin, place yourself in the place and position that you have found to be most advantageous to meditation. Relax your mind, body, and emotions. Command your mind to cease its chatter, your emotions to stay in a serene mode, and your body to not disturb your meditation in any way. Focus your attention to the sound and feeling of your breath coming in and going out. Return to your breath awareness if you witness that you have lost your focus. At no time during your meditation should you chastise yourself about anything. So, for example, if you lose your attention and then realize this, just accept it without commenting. Return your attention to your breath and then continue with your meditation.

Close your eyes. Place your attention on the area between your eyebrows. After a short time, a point of light will present itself in the center of your inner field of vision. Keep your focus there. For some people, it will be beneficial to raise your eyeballs as if you were looking up at about a 25-degree angle. For others, just directing their attention upwards will be easier and less distracting. After some experimentation, go with one of the ways exclusively. In the beginning of 3rd eye practice, it may help to place your thumb at the outer edge of one eye and your middle finger on the outer edge of the other, while placing your index finger at the mid-point between your eyebrows. This gives you a point of focus to place your attention. It also allows you to prevent your eyelids from fluttering. This commonly occurs, and can be distracting until you get used to the sensations that accompany this technique.

Let the light come to you. Be available to be filled. The more you continue practicing this meditation, the more layers of the veil of illusion will peel away and Reality will reveal itself to you. As you perceive the Truth, your understanding of the delusional concept that you are apart from the rest of the universe will lose its grip on you, and the knowledge that you are a part of all and everything will become undeniably apparent. Your chattering mind will eventually dissolve in the unspeakable transcendent light of love that is now and forever within and without you.

Once you stop being locked into viewing reality from just one perspective, you will start to be free from habitual reactivity. 3rd eye experiences put you in that position. You will recognize that nothing more than a show has been playing out before you in what you considered “real life”. And, just like when you are at the theater, you may be interested to some degree with seeing how the plot turns out, but knowing that it is all just a story, you won’t take it any more seriously than a show. The constant anxiety and fear that is attached to a singular ego centered view of life will end and be replaced with the bliss of effortlessly merging and identifying with all of creation.

Once a chick has pecked its way out of its shell, it knows that there is a lot more to life than was within its dark confines. Mother Nature, Grace, then gives the chick strong wings that let it fly to the heavens. The 3rd eye meditation technique has the potential to be the beak you use to break out of your shell, as well as the wings to transport you to the infinite, eternal, universal divine reality that is your birthright.

Benefits of vibhuti & rudrakshNamaste all, 


Applying vibhuti in different points of the body can bring positive
energy. Rudraksh comes in varieties, each for a different purpose,
says Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

 

 

Vibhuti is a tool to enhance receptivity. When applied at different
points of the body, especially points of higher receptivity, one
receives positive energy.

Vibhuti is always taken with the ring finger
as that is the most sacred part of the body. Apply Vibuthi to the
following places for maximum benefit:
Agna Chakra: Between the eyebrows to receive life as knowledge or
wisdom
Vishuddhi Chakra: Pit of the throat to enhance power
Anahata Chakra: Center of chest, where the ribcage meets to receive
life as love
Just behind the earlobe is a solid bone which runs into a crevice.
If one follows that crevice one can find a dimple where a little
Vibhuti can be applied
Men can apply a little bit of Vibhuti on their right big toe, while
women should apply it on their left big toe

Another powerful tool to
enhance one’s well-being is Rudraksh, the seed of a tree that
primarily grows in the mountains. Rudraksh has a very unique vibration
about itself and is worn for different purposes Rudraksh cleanses a
certain amount of the aura. It can vary from pitch-black to pure
white, depending on the person’s physical and mental health. The aura
is the reflection of who one really is. If one goes to a new place
where the vibrations are completely different, the body may not be
able to settle down.

Wearing Rudraksh cocoons one in one’s own
energies, preventing external energies from disturbing. There are a
variety of Rudraksh available, each for a different purpose. Ekamukhi
or single-faced Rudraksh is for power. However, it is not advisable to
wear it without proper guidance. Dwimukhi or twofaced is for wealth,
while Panchamukhi or five-faced is for well-being. Panchamukhi can be
worn by everyone, irrespective of age or gender. Apart from improving
general well-being, it also reduces blood pressure and keeps the body
calm and alert. Shanmukhi or six-faced Rudraksh is good for children
as it attracts motherly love.

Description of Chakra: “Sahasrara means the thousand-petalled lotus”. When this chakra opens, you are flooded with ecstasy and eternal bliss. It is associated with the pituitary gland. Other associations include the central nervous system and the rational brain or cortex. When it is in harmony, it creates the yogic sattvic personality who is complete and in tune with the universe.

The Chakras-The Seven Centers of Consciousness

A primary focus of Amrit Yoga is to build heat by charging the
battery of the body, which is based in the lower three centers. As
this energy is aroused and consciously directed from the lower
chakras to the upper ones, our biological prana awakens to its
evolutionary potential. Awakened prana, called Kundalini, carries out
healing and cleansing at an accelerated level - resulting in the
purification of the nerve channels in the body as well as cleansing
kriyas - all of which prepare the body for accelerated spiritual
development.

Chakra One: Roots, Alignment, Earth

Muladhara is the body in physical space and time, developing
groundedness, stability and foundation. In Amrit Yoga, the attention
is alignment in all poses, building awareness and strength in the
legs - especially all standing poses. Anything that stabilizes and
roots the foundation reinforces muladhara.

Chakra Two: Sensation, Flow, Water

In Swadisthana we become aware of the senses, sensation
(pleasure/pain) and emotions that accompany each pose. We allow our
awareness of ecstatic energy to build in the second half of the pose.
Suggested poses include pigeon, bridge and the spinal twist.

Chakra Three: Power, Fire

In Manipura, our fire (spiritual heat) is stimulated. We "jump-start"
the battery of the body, the physical storehouse of energy, through
strong standing poses like The Warrior. The willful aspect of the
practice is also associated with chakra three. In the first half of
the Amrit Yoga Level I sequence, we are building the battery in the
belly and then consciously directing that energy upward. This is an
essential part of Level I as this conscious generation and directing
of energy is necessary for prana to awaken and move upward to higher
centers.

Chakra Four: Awakening to the Spiritual Path

In Anahata, we are asked to open the heart. This requires spiritual
commitment to let the ego drop away. In Amrit Yoga the heart energy
is engaged with the use of the arms, with mudras, giving and
receiving movements. Some heart opening poses can be: camel, yoga
mudra, cobra, half locust (opens arms and heart meridians). Breath
and the fourth chakra are closely connected (lungs).

Chakra Five: Communication (internal/external) - the power of sound
vibration

Visuddha is more apparent in Level II Amrit Yoga, but also in Level
I - we turn into the vibration of prana that sources the movement.
Use sound vibration when in the pose and the power of your word
(opening intention and Om) to create the vibrational field you
intend. Become aware of your own inner dialogue and if it serves you
or not. In Amrit Yoga the throat chakra may be stimulated through
chanting, bridge, camel and shoulder stand postures.

Chakra Six: the Third Eye

Meditation, witness, meditative awareness Pratyahara; deep absorption
without choosing for or against what is present in Ajna chakra. In
the second half of the pose and Third Eye integration-consciously
allow energies to grow with meditative attention and draw freed
energies upward toward the Third Eye for integration. All forward
bending poses where the head is lower than the heart brings attention
and energy to the third eye (child, yoga mudra, wide-angle forward
bend).

Chakra Seven: Silence

In the Sahasrar, the elixir of Amrita comes through silencing the
fluctuations of the mind. This is the entry into the bliss body,
which can happen in the second half of the pose, in Third Eye
Meditation integration, or in any pose. All these practices of Amrit
Yoga are intended to reach the final point of stilling the
modifications of the mind, which is always associated with the
seventh chakra.

Aura Analysis
By: Dr. R. Thiagarajan  


An aura, according to New Age metaphysics, is a colored outline, or 
set of contiguous outlines, allegedly emanating from the surface 
of an object. In the New Age, even the lowly amoeba has an aura, 
as does the mosquito and every lump of goat dung. The aura 
supposedly reflects a supernatural energy field or life force 
that permeates all things. Human auras allegedly emerge from 
the chakras. Under ordinary circumstances, auras are only visible 
to certain people with special psychic power. However, with a 
little bit of training, or with a special set of Aura Goggles 
with "pinacyanole bromide" filters (available at your local 
New Age Head Shop), anyone can see auras. You may also use 
Kirlian photography to capture auras on film. At least that is 
what New Age spiritualists believe.

Chakra
According to Tantric philosophy and Yoga, a chakra is a points of 
energy in the astral body. There are seven primary chakras, which 
are associated with various parts of the body, emotions, desires, 
thoughts, powers, and health.* New Age gurus think chakras have 
colors and give rise to auras, which reveal one's spiritual and 
physical health, as well as one's karma. The alleged energy of 
the chakras is not scientifically measurable, however, and is at 
best a metaphysical chimera and at worst an anatomical falsehood.

Astral body
The astral body is one of seven bodies each of us has, according 
to Madame Blavatsky. The astral body is the seat of feeling and 
desire and has an aura. How the physical body and the other alleged 
bodies interact is unknown, but it is said to be by some sort of 
occult force. The astral body is said to be capable of leaving the 
other bodies for an out-of-body experience known as astral projection.

Theory of Chakras
Chakra doctrine postulates seven charkas. These are called the 
Muladhara or "Root Support" at the base of the spine with four 
"petals", the Swadhishthana or "Own Abode" at the root of the 
genitals with six, the Manipura or "Fullness of Jewels" at the level 
of the navel with ten "petals", the Anahata or "Unstruck Melody" at 
the heart-centre with twelve, the Vishuddha or "Complete Purity" at 
the throat with sixteen, and finally the Ajna or "Guru's Command" at 
the brow with two "petals". The Crown centre, the Sahasrara-Padma or 
"Thousand Petalled-Lotus", located at the very top of the head, is 
technically speaking not a chakra at all, but the summation of all the 
chakras.

The chakras are strung along the central or Sushumna channel (usually 
located at the spine). In the lowest chakra, the Muladhara, at the base 
of the spine, there lies the kundalini-shakti, the latent 
consciousness-energy, the microcosm of the cosmic creative shakti. 
When this is aroused, it can be made to ascend the sushumna, either 
ac-tivating or dissolving (depending on the yogic tradition) each 
chakra in turn, until it reaches the highest or crown chakra, the 
Sahasrara, where dwells the Godhead or Supreme Shiva (Paramashiva). 
As the Kundalini-Shakti unites with Paramashiva, the original 
transcendent equilibrium is restored, and the yogi returns to the 
state of oneness with the Absolute.

The chakras are described as stations or centres of pure consciousness 
(chaitanya) and consciousness-power. They are focal points of 
meditation; iconographic structures within the occult or "subtle body". 
Apart from the Sahasrara, each chakra is described by means of a whole 
lot of symbolic associations or correspondences. Building upon the 
initial later Upanishads speculation, each chakra, as well as having a 
specific position in the physical body, element, mantra, and deity, 
also has a particular number of "petals", each associated with one of 
the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, a corresponding colour, shape, 
animal, plane of existence, sense-organ, mantric sound, and so on.

As is usually the case with intellectual esoteric systems, a lot of 
these correspondences are arbitrary, for example, smell and feet with 
Muladhara, taste and hand with Swadhishthana, sight and anus with 
Manipura, etc. These associations are all based on the Samkhyan 
sequence of tattwas and their attributes.

In addition to the seven major chakras arranged along the spine there 
are also chakras in the hands, feet, genitals, and so on. Also in 
addition to the seven major chakras, there are also a number of other 
chakras along the spine which are sometimes referred to. In his 
exhaustively detailed and definitive work on the chakras according to t
he traditional Indian understanding, Reference is also made in all 
Tantric texts to the nadis or channels of vital-force (prana). 
According to the traditional Tantric teachings, the seven chakras are 
strung like pearls or jewels along the brilliant thin thread of the 
sushumna nadi, which is the primary nadi in the body. On either side 
of the sushumna are the two main secondary nadis: the white moon-like 
ida on the left, containing descending vitality (apana), and the red 
sun-like pingala on the right, containing ascending vitality (prana in 
the narrow sense of the term). The tantric yogi aims to direct the 
subtle airs from these two primary side channels into the central 
sushumna nadi, and so activate the latent Kundalini energy. This then 
ascends through each of the chakras in turn, and when it reaches the 
top of the head, the yogi attains Liberation

The understanding of the chakras and kundalini in the West derives 
largely from Sir John Woodroffe's The Serpent Power, a very technical 
work, first published in 1919 under the psuedonym Arthur Avalon. The 
first (and still one of of the only) serious books on the chakras and 
Kundalini yoga to be published in the West, it is actually a translation 
of two sixteenth century Bengali texts and their commentaries, 
together with Woodroffe's own long and detailed introduction. 
Woodroffe's book - his own chapters cover Shakta metaphysics and 
cosmology, Patanjali Yoga, and Tantric practice, as well as the chakras 
themselves - is unfortunately very difficult for the beginner, but it 
served as the inspiration and chief reference text (usually without 
acknowledgment) for many Western occult-esoteric writers.

The Subtle Energy Body
Aura, Chakras, and the Rainbow
The Aura
The aura is the energy field which surrounds a physical object. The 
aura of a human is more complex than that of a rock or animal because 
of the spirit within humankind, which is made in the image of God. 
Sensitive people and small children are often able to see the auras and 
what is in them. Usually there are colors and these colors can change 
according to the mood of the person and the situation the person is in.

The aura reflects the total person because the spiritual aspect 
influences the mental/emotional state which impacts our physical reality 
of which the aura is the outermost part. 

Chakra Energy Vortexes 
The energy field of the human body has junction boxes in it, like the 
wiring in a house or the interstate system of roads which connect the 
United States. These junction boxes are called chakras which means 
spinning wheel. In the spiritually enlightened person, each chakra is 
a different color, corresponding to the colors in a rainbow. 

This diagram shows a person who has many colors in his/her aura. 
Although colors in the aura change, sometimes only one or two is 
predominant. Ideally, all the colors of the rainbow will move in and 
through a person's aura, showing a balance between the different energy 
systems and harmony between the different levels of consciousness. 
This diagram depicts a rainbow warrior, someone who has attuned his 
or her chakras and is keeping them attuned and cleansed so all the 
energies are balanced and harmonized.

There are 7 major chakras in our body. Each chakra is associated with 
an aspect of consciousness. The chakras begin at the base of our spine 
and then are located upwards, to the top of our head. These are 
illustrated by the colored circles running up the spine in the diagram. 
While there are other, lesser, vortices, they are not shown in this 
picture. In Angelic RayKey, you will learn how to sense the state of 
these chakras in a person or yourself, what to do to open them, and 
how to enhance the spin and balance of all energy points, large or 
small.

The state of a person's health can be detected by Kirilian photography, 
dowsing, and other methods of measuring and recording the color and 
spin of the chakras and aura. When the chakras are small, out of 
alignment (making a crooked line running through them), or out of 
synchronization with each other, there is an imbalance which will be 
evident somewhere else for the individual. This may be a physical 
illness, a mental problem, a relationship which has ended or something 
of the kind or a combination of any of the above. The Angelic RayKey 
practitioner assists a person to become like the diagram, balanced, 
aligned and in a state of perfection.

In the Angelic RayKey classes (coming soon to a cyberspace near 
you--want to know when?) the aura and chakras are discussed as part of 
the attunement process. That's because these energy centers are 
important in our spiritual growth, and they provide insight to our 
conscious healing process.

Study of the Chakras
   
  The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. If we were able to see the chakras (as many psychics, in fact, do) we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating.  Clairvoyants perceive chakras as colorful wheels or flowers with a hub in the center. The chakras begin at the base of the spine and finish over the top of the head. Though fixed in the central spinal column they are located on both the front and back of the body, and work through it.

Each chakra vibrates and rotates at different speeds. The root or first chakra rotates at the slowest speed, the crown or seventh chakra at the highest. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary color, and a range of gemstones for specific uses. The chakra colors are of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, physical condition, energy levels, disease, or stress.

If the chakras are not balanced, or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be slowed down.

The individual may feel listless, tired, out of sorts, or depressed. Not only will physical bodily functions be affected so diseases may manifest, but the thought processes and the mind may also be affected.  A negative attitude, fear, doubt, etc. may preoccupy the individual.

A constant balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well being. If the chakras are opened to much, a person could literally short circuit themselves with too much universal energy going through the body. If the chakras are closed, this does not allow for the universal energy to flow through them properly which may also lead to dis-ease.

Most of us react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feeling and stopping a great deal of our natural energy flow. This affects the maturation and development of the chakras.  Whenever a person blocks whatever experience he is having, he in turn blocks his chakras, which eventually become disfigured. When the chakras are functioning normally, each will be ‘open’, spinning clockwise to metabolize the particular energies needed from the universal energy field.

As already mentioned any ‘imbalances’ that exist within any chakra may have profound effects upon either our physical or emotional bodies.  We are able to use our quartz crystals and gemstones to re-balance all our chakric centers and once the chakra has been properly balanced then our body will gradually return to normal.

The reason why crystals and gemstones are wonderful and powerful healing tools are because of what science calls its piezoelectric effect.  (You can see this effect in the modern quartz watches). Crystals and gemstones respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, and if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and stimulate these energies.
