  The Buddha was talking with Uttara, a young pupil of the bhramin Parasariya:
-Uttara, does Parasariya teach you how to develop your faculties?
-Yes, Master Gotama, he does teach us how to develop our faculties
-How does he do... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: AWAKENING YOUR PSYCHIC POWERS WITH THIRD EYE MEDITATION
vertical line Posted on Feb.01.2013 @ 04:14AM EDT by Mindfulnes

Third eye meditation has alerted the interest of many people these days more so teenagers and a couple of college students. Third eye meditation is simple and easy to understand. Just above your nose and in between your eyes, and beneath your forehead is a spot that is normally referred to as the “third eye”. The third eye corresponds to Ajna chakra in both yoga and tantra terms. In third eye meditation, one concentrates on that spot with a concentrated-visualization. With time, it opens up and you start seeing supernatural things that are usually black and white. The third eye meditation helps you to attain that meditative state instantly and automatically. It also helps to stimulate your intuitive and psychological-power by inducing powerful mental-images that are unperceived by other senses such as sight or smell.

The visualization performed on the spot is normally a picture of a silver flame, a white moon, a shining star, or an auspicious silver-figure. It can also be a letter of the Jewish-alphabet, but whatever the auspicious is, it will surely serve as a stable-concentration! If someone tries to concentrate on a single item and then focus their thoughts on a specific place without any form of disturbance, then they can reach a stopping stage, this is the basis of the entrance to samadhi! With this in mind, how then can you do the third eye meditation? The following is a step by step guide on how to go about doing the practice correctly.

First, sit down with your legs crossed or the lotus position while keeping your back straight. You can learn more meditation postures so as to find the perfect posture to sit upright. Then close your eyes, breath in deeply to fill your lungs with cool fresh air. Next, pause for a few seconds and breath out slowly, do this process three times.

Secondly, shift your focus completely towards the third eye or the Ajna Chakra. Then keep eyes closed , draw your closed eyes closer to the center of your forehead, this is simply trying to look up with your eyes closed.

Maintain focus on the Ajna Chakra and then start counting backward from say 100 to 0. Throughout the third eye mediation, your eyes should be closed and centered towards the Ajna Chakra.

Keep this position for almost 15 minutes and then slowly bring the eyes back to the normal position. At this stage, you should feel stress while releasing your eyes. Let your eyes regain normal movement and keep them loose and free.

At this stage, take a deep breath for 3 to 5 minutes till your focus shifts from the third eye and the eyes start regaining their normal feeling. Imagine that your eye is getting a stimulation and opening up slowly, feel your psychic-powers rising and rising!

The last step is simply a mindfulness exercise. It involves you opening your eyes gently. Be calm for a few minutes, and enjoy the relaxation sate of the mind.

Most people have felt the effects of this mindfulness exercise with an increase in intuitive or psychic-powers. This is however not surprising given the fact that the third eye is a link between subconscious and conscious mind.
