Third Eye Chakra Meditations
Meditations to Open Third Eye
If you read the intriguing comments in the Kundalini Awakening Symtoms artilce, you will find that the region which is almost always affected by Kundalini Rising is the Third Eye center. This chakra (energy vortex) is situated in the center of forehead, just above eyebrows, and although it is so often a part of spiritual awakenings, the particular feelings and experiences which practitioners encounter there vary a great deal.
You will find in those reports, tingling in the Third Eye region, feeling pressure there, seeing colors, experiencing great expansion, pain, visions, etc, etc. In my view all these are indications of the Third Eye opening, but the particular experiences are different for different people. With regard to these physical and psychological experiences, I feel it is best to use them as a source of inspiration and motivation to deepen and expand your meditation and yoga practice.
The Third Eye is also of course the seat of intuition and wisdom, in the Kundalini Seven Chakra System, and so it is a particularly important center for those interested in spiritual evolution. Finally, the Third Eye is also considered the key for unleasing psychic powers and abilities so for those interested in such matters, again opening this chakra is of particular significance.
