Third Eye Meditation

<img src=

Third eye meditation is focused on the third eye chakra (also known as the Ajna chakra) it is the 6th chakra and found in the center of the forehead or brow.

Meditation on this chakra is a wonderful way to develop your powers of concentration and intuition. When I first began meditating I used this technique. Most of the artwork you see on my site came from third eye meditation. Though at the time I was a novice I didn’t realize I was doing this. That is just where I focused when I wanted images for inspiration in my art.

      What is your third eye chakra?
      It is the window to your inner spirit or psychic center. The third eye chakra is where dreams, concentration, intuition, and wisdom are developed.

Meditation on this chakra can enhance your intuition. It is the center to focus on when using guided imagery meditation. It can be the movie screen that plays out the subject you are meditating on and can speak to you in images. As I mentioned before many of the images on my website came from this form of meditation.

      How to Focus on Your Third Eye
      Close your eyes, but focus their attention on the spot in the center of your forehead just above your eyes.

You are actually looking slightly up and in toward the middle of your forehead. This is not an extreme focus you should not feel a strain on your eyes.

You will feel a gentle pull as your eyes look upward, at this point just relax into the focus, and concentrate on your meditation.

      Third Eye Meditation
      Now that you have mastered focusing your attention on your third eye you can begin your meditation practice.

Sit quietly in a place where you will not be interrupted.

Take a few deep breaths in and out and relax.

If you have a particular subject you would like to meditate on then that will be where your thoughts will concentrate. You can focus on an image and let it appear on your third eye center, it is the movie screen where you can create images and mini screen plays.

If you are trying to work out a problem create the scenario that will best solve the problem. When your mind is quiet and free from outside distraction it makes it much easier to solve problems. You may find the perfect solution this way.

If distracting thoughts come in just let them float out again, do not follow them through. Just recognize them and let them go, then move gently back to your concentration and quiet.

This is also a perfect meditation technique to use when you have a mantra you’d like to meditate on. Mantra meditation is a wonderful way to help keep your focus. You can picture the word as you silently repeat it.

      Renew Yourself
      Just a few minutes a day spent in third eye meditation can help renew your energy and give you a sense of calm that will carry you through your day.

When you feel the stresses of the day closing in on you, just stop for a few minutes, close your eyes, and concentrate on the quiet center of your third eye.

It is the center of your being, the quiet space we all need to get away from the stresses of everyday life.
