Background of Ajna Chakra Meditation Technique (Third Eye): 

The Ajna Chakra is the sixth chakra of the Kundalini Seven Chakra System.  A chakra is an energy vortex which resides in a particular location of the body and governs the organs and glands of that region.  A Chakra is also associated with certain traits and characteristics of the personality and forms a bridge between mind, body and spirit. 

The Ajna Chakra (or Third Eye) eye lies at the very top of spine in the medulla oblongata.  It relates to the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, the nasociliary nerve plexus and frontal lobes of the brain.

Chakra Meditation means to activate and balance a particular chakra, thus improving the functioning of everything in that particular region as well as refining the associated personality traits and characteristics.  In some cases psychic powers associated with a particular chakra are also unleashed.

Ajna Chakra literally mean “To Command”.  This chakra is also called the “Third Eye” as it’s activation gives one the power of intuitive knowledge.  In addition, it is called the “Guru Chakra” as its activation connects one to the “Inner Guru”.  Similarly, it is also called “Eye of Shiva” or “The Divine Eye” for it’s awakening implies the higher stages of meditation and wisdom. 

Each chakra can be activated by several means.  In this guided meditation we will use the physical trigger point of the chakra (kshetram) as a point of concentration to activate it.  In addition, each chakra is associated with a particular seed sound (Beej Mantra) which can be utilized to awaken it.   For the Ajan Chakra the Beej Mantra is the primordial sound “OM” (AUM) and this guided meditation will be using that as well.

Cautions for Practicing Ajna Chakra Meditation Technique (Third Eye):

Do not strain when holding shambhavi yoga mudra (detailed below).

Guided Ajna Chakra Meditation Technique (Third Eye): 

Follow the step by step guided meditation below to practice this technique:

  • Sit in a comfortable cross legged position.  You may also sit on a chair or lean against a wall for this meditation.
  • Set your alarm or other time device for 20 minutes.
  • Elongate your spine upwards, lengthen your neck and subtly bring your chin back and in, like a soldier at attention.  This will align the spine with the back of your head.
  • Take 5 deep, slow breaths though the nose.  This will oxygenate your blood and relax you.
  • Keeping the head straight look up at an imaginary point in the middle of your forehead, just above the eyebrows.  This eye position is called shambhavi yoga mudra.  Close your eyes while holding this mudra.  Do not strain excessively.
  • Rest your hands in any comfortable position, you can place them on your knees.
  • Try to remain as still as possible.
  • Now inhale deeply and begin to chant in a soft, slow, steady voice the manta OM (pronounced AUM).  One chant of OM (AUM) Mantra should last for the entire exhalation.  Its a long “Oh”, followed by a semi long “Mmmm” during each exhalation.  Once all the air has been expelled, inhale fully again and begin to chant the mantra once more.  Visualize the OM sound coming from a point in the middle of the forehead just above the eyebrows and emanating throughout your entire body. 
  • Continue for the duration of the meditation.  If your eyes tire from shambhavi yoga mudra release the mudra but continue to chant the OM (AUM) mantra as above.  Reapply the mudra again when ready.
  • Once you have completed the meditation, rub the palms of your hands together to make them warm and place them on your eyes as you open them slowly.  This will relax and comfort your eye muscles.

Hints and Tips for Ajna Chakra Meditation Technique (Third Eye):

  • There are many variations to OM (AUM) Mantra chanting for the activation of Ajna Chakra.  I will provide a variation that only requires silently chanting OM Mantra and therefore can be practiced almost anywhere.  Follow all steps from the guided meditation above except instead of chanting OM (AUM) Mantra out loud, as you inhale chant “Oh” silently, while visualizing the sound flowing into Ajna Chakra from your forehead and then silently chant “Mmmm” as you exhale, visualizing the sound leaving your forehead from Ajna Chakra.  The rest is the same as the guided meditation above.

Secret of Ajna Chakra Meditation Technique (Third Eye):

Many women today are actually practicing Ajna Chakra Meditation without even knowing it.  This is resulting from the tradition of wearing a bindi.  A bindi is the colorful decorative dot placed in the middle of the forehead and was designed originally to provide continual stimulation to Ajna Chakra by way of its Kshetram (physical trigger point).  So next time you wear a bindi, remember that not only does it look oh so fine, but it is also raising your level of awareness and consciousness – not bad for a dot.

    I had a psychic tarot card reading last week. The psychic told me that I really needed to open my third eye and I need to be aware. What does she mean by this? Do I think I’m psychic – No, I’ve had another psychic tell me that they feel energy with me and that I need to listen to myself, etc. What do you think?

    Hi Anmol,

    First of all, this is a great website. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into this amazing database!

    I’ve spent a good deal of time searching the internet for information primarily on the third eye. So much of what I’ve found is very vague and really nothing like what I’ve experienced. Which makes me feel like either they don’t know what they’re talking about or I am misinterpreting my experiences. That’s why I was very happy to find that I was recognizing much of what was being said here in my own experiences.

    When I was four or five I remember clearly asking my Mother why the point between my eyebrows felt funny after I touched it with the tip of my finger. She didn’t understand what I was talking about, thinking that it’s just some child’s fancy. So I showed her. She of course couldn’t feel what I was feeling and when I told her to touch the spot between her eyebrows she had no response.

    This continued of course. Whenever I touched that spot I would feel a tingling or pressure for several minutes afterward but I never mentioned it to my Mother again because it wasn’t something we shared. And eventually it wasn’t important to me any longer, I was the only one I knew that that happened to. My friends didn’t get it either.

    It wasn’t until my early twenties that I became interested in it again. That is to say, started trying to puzzle out what kind of phenomenon it was. And I saw something on TV that mentioned the third eye and sort of liked the idea of the paranormal application.

    Since then, on and off I’ve tried meditating while having the pressure present. During these last three years I’ve been able to “call” up the feeling merely by thinking about it. I can be standing up at work, or lying at home in my bed. And it’s become a kind of source of comfort. I’ve noticed that when I’m stressed or irritated at work, all I need to do is bring back the vibration and the agitation will very quickly subside and I will be at peace.

    I guess why I’m writing, (after being so very long-winded, sorry) is that I’m very much interested in what happens now? I feel like I don’t care about some sort of special powers, that’s not what drives me. What drives me is need. But I don’t know what it is that I need. It feels urgent and powerful but I know not its face.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I felt like I just needed to vent a little and if you feel that you have any insight to offer, your feedback would be most welcome.

    Best regards,
