The Third Eye
Our third eye is one of the seven primary chakras (brow chakra) and is located between your eyebrows, but slightly raised (mid forehead). To develop this region gives you certain attributes such as better visualization, increased psychic perceptions, and better creativity. This is why they associate the sixth chakra with "vision and thought" because this is where we "see" things.
There really is only ONE eye (your third eye) but while we're in the physical, we have our two physical ones, plus our "third" unseen one. The real vision is in your third eye. If you close your eyes and "see" in front of you, you'll notice that you're really seeing everything from the third eye location. If you put your fingers over your closed eyelids, you'll notice that there is NO sight coming from the area of your two eyes. Close your eyes and imagine an object, then put your finger on where you see the object, you will have then located the third eye.
When I'm working on my remote viewing, I work this chakra prior to my session. This can also help in astral projection because third eye stimulation increases lucid dreams (again because this is the "vision" center) and from more clear and lucid dreams, we can program ourselves to turn this into a projection.
I stimulate my third eye by imagining white energy swirling around it. Within seconds, I can feel the pulse and swaying of it actually opening up (chakras are also associated with "wheels" or "petals" which spin and open).
I wrote in several articles on my webpage that you should look at the third eye and think of nothing prior to astral separation. This is because you don't want to stimulate this region as you are separating because this will create energy and it's my opinion that any energy in your chakras at the time of separation will cause the magnetic pull to increase, thereby making it more difficult to separate. If this wasn't true, then our astral arms and legs would not be the first to rise (they have no "primary" chakras!). So work your third eye during normal meditation, but not as you're attempting separation. It is the utter quieting of all chakras prior to astral projection that I recommend.
