One Simple Way To Open The Third Eye Chakra

There has been a huge growth in the interest in “opening the Third Eye,” or “awakening the pineal gland” or countless variations on the theme.  This is wonderful!

The growth of interest in spiritual methods and realities is a phenomenal announcement that we, as a species, are becoming more self-aware and aware of those around us.

But I find that there are countless misunderstandings about just what happens when your 6th chakra “opens,” making it very frustrating, indeed, for someone seeking this very special experience.

The Meditation of Doing

One of the biggest misunderstandings of meditation that I’ve found, both in myself and others, is that to meditate, one must sit silently and do nothing for a specific period of time.

If you’re a naturally “still” person, this can be bliss in, and of, itself.

If you’re a more active kind of person, this can be friggin booooooooooring!

(Ironically, that boredom might be exactly what you need to master your inner stillness!)

However, meditation isn’t just sitting in lotus position on a yoga mat on the floor and breathing in incense.

So let’s clear up a basic meditation misunderstanding.

Bubbles Of Yuck

As we’ve covered in other posts, our minds tend to translate certain aspects of our reality into ways that we may more readily understand.

The key to getting these translations from your subconscious is to simply “listen,” by which I mean, just quieten your mind for a bit and just observe.

In this particular exercise, we are going to play with one of those “translations”, but we’re going to do so by giving our subconscious mind the metaphor through which to work.

Now, there are a few techniques which you will find recurring over and over again, so please, if you haven’t familiarized yourself with this basic technique, then please take a minute and read it over.

Getting an Experience With The Higher Self

Spirit guides, guardian angels, Higher Self, God Self, Holy Spirit…

My experiences suggest that they are all one and the same; furthermore that they are aspects of our very being.

In truth, what we may call our “Spirit Guide” we may very well call our “Higher Self” or our “Higher Consciousness”.

We may even call it simply “I AM.”

What Is Meditation pt. 1

In over a decade of research and practice, I’ve come across literally thousands of meditation techniques, hundreds of explanations as to what meditation is, and, were I to rely on all of this, I still wouldn’t be able to tell you!

However, I am a big fan of Occam’s Razor and gravitate toward the absolute simplest of explanations.

So, let’s ask the question, “What is meditation?”

How To Experience Oneness Pt. 1

Mystics, sages, enlightened gurus, avatars and teachers throughout history and from all over the world have tried time and time again to explain that all things, all beings, all creations are One.

Without the experience of this, it can be a very difficult concept to grasp.

“If we are all One, then why do we kill one another?  Why is there pain and suffering?” you may find yourself asking.  The answer is simple.

We have forgotten.
