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
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.
