The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as hinduism, the third eye refers to the anja, or brow, chakra. In theosophy it is related to the pineal gland. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In new age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance.
The Third Eye is directly related to the 6th chakra — the psychic chakra, located on the middle of the forehead above the brows. It is closely associated with the “pineal” gland. The pineal gland is dormant in most people, as is the true Third Eye.
All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.
When the pineal gland is awakened, we experience vivid imagery and complete relaxation. We usually only experience a theta brain wave state just between wakefulness and sleep, as we drift off from the ‘edge’ of consciousness. In this state we are extremely receptive to the wisdom of the Universe. We can literally tap into higher intelligence and other dimensions.
This Chakra is the perception center of all non-material reality. Here we can see life from an objective perspective. We see the situations but are not attached to them and therefore choose our actions rather than reacting. This is where inner knowing comes from, the ability to know the truth, intuition. This is how we see a person’s inner beauty. This is the seat of neutral, non-judgmental awareness.
You don’t need a new life, just a new lens through which to view the one you have.
Being present is the greatest reward in itself, because it is the necessary factor in experiencing true contentment, peace, creativity, and happiness that is not dependent on external circumstances. It is in the present that true satisfaction lives.
Simply placing your awareness in your Third Eye is effective in stimulating the pineal. When you do it, you’ll notice a feeling of slight pressure in your forehead area, which is a good sign. Just hold your attention there and be mindful of your body and mind.
Sodalite encourages being true to self and standing up for your beliefs. A stone of self-expression and confidence, Sodalite can aid in issues of self-worth, self-acceptance, and self-esteem. Sodalite promotes intuition and a trust in one’s own judgment, which can be a great ally in daily life. Sodalite helps to achieve emotional balance, releasing old conditioning and programming of the past which no longer serves. A stone of awakening, Sodalite stimulates the Pineal Gland and the Third Eye, and deepens meditation. Sodalite is helpful for those who find themselves to be over-emotional, due to its ability to focus energy on the Third-Eye and Throat Chakras. This will allow one to use more logic and intuition, rather than the emotions from an over-developed Heart Chakra. Sodalite helps to enhance psychic abilities while discouraging any obsession about such abilities.
You may experience any or all of these to varying degrees:
- Faster, easier learning and retention
- Marked increase in intuition
- Increased creativity
- Psychic gifts develop and become markedly stronger, along with more developed ability to see or sense human auras
- Clairvoyance (psychic vision) opens up
- Clairaudience (psychic hearing) opens up
- Clairsentience (psychic feeling/touching) opens up
Intuition is the clear conception of the whole at once.
Opening your third eye is like opening a doorway to parts of your mind that you weren’t aware existed. The third eye allows for the energy flow to parts of the brain where your intuitions, psychic perceptions, spiritual communications and higher thought orders lie.
Opening your third eye increases your ability to communicate with your higher power, with your higher self, increases your psychic awareness and opens the floodgate to creativity.
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Pineal Gland is represented in Catholicism in Rome; they depict the pineal as a pine cone in art. The ancient societies like the Egyptians and the Romans knew the benefits and exemplified this in their vast symbology with a symbol of an eye.
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” -Buddha
Through cultivating an awareness of our sensations, along with breath practice and a sense of joy, we arrive in our “energy- body” or emotional body. Through mental focus, detached observation of the present moment, and cultivating ever-increasing awareness, we arrive in our mind.
NOW, FOCUS ON YOUR EYE.
