The Third Eye is directly related to the 6th chakra — the psychic chakra, located on the middle of the forehead above the brows.
Awakening the Third Eye is said to provide a lot of psychic powers.
As a psychiatrist, my research has found that there is a certain amount of truth between "awakening the third eye" and "modern day science".
French Philosopher Rene Descartes believed the pineal gland to be “the seat of the soul” where mind and body met.
The pineal gland is dormant in most people, as is the true Third Eye.
The meditation practices required to "awaken the third eye" are extremely beneficial to the human mind - body.
Meditation is the first step in awakening the third eye.
the easiest way of such meditation mentioned in various ancient texts requires you to -
Sit upright in a chair, or in a comfortable cross-legged position on a sofa or, on a cushion on the floor.
Loosen your shoulders.
Relax your neck muscles by doing half head circles.
Close your eyes.
Focus attention at the point between your eyebrows... try to maintain attention for 3-5 minutes each.
While focusing continously is impossible for many, the best way to do it, is by following the following check list in the order mentioned -
1) Enjoy yourself - feel positive about your position and your body.
2) the first barrier would be the sensations that will come from the external environment.
most people fail at this stage, as they get irritated.
its important to accept all these sensations and as you continuously practice will be able to assimilate them within yourself.
3) The next experience will be the sensations arising in the body. Tickling or numbness sensations.
4) Then Feel the thoughts and emotions arising in your mind. Initially there is a tsunami of the same. As you work harder, the stronger you become.
5) Memories and impressions bubble up from the Subconscious.
6) You have to feel the positivity arising inside of you... Slowly with time all these emotions, thoughts, memories and impressions will be taken into the positive fire inside you.
7) Enjoy these negativity burning and your positive self manifesting itself.
8) let the light or fire of positivity start emitting from the position of the third eye.. and enlight your entire being.
