…your third-eye that is. As we’ve been working on clearing all blocks along our main energy channel, the sushumna nadi, to allow for kundalini energy to rise we may stumble into a block with our third-eye chakra. The mediation below will help clear any blockages that may arise as you work with re-connecting or establishing a better relationship with your intuitive self. Before you begin find a comfortable seat with your back supported upright in a chair or against a wall. Slowly close your eyes and start to notice your breath; breathing in and out comfortably and smoothly.
Bring your internal gaze to the third eye point. With your minds eye imagine and bring into gaze the color indigo. When you have this color in sight, visualize it taking shape into a flame, a blue-ish flame. Draw this flame down to the base of your spine and with each breath let it travel up to your third-eye center. With each inhalation, visualize the flame slightly flicker as you inhale and exhale. Take several rounds of breath here and begin to add the seed mantra OM to the exhalation, chant silently or aloud OM from nine to 108 times, but always in denominations of nine.
Conclude by saying silently or aloud 3 times, I am always open, safe and supported at the center of my being. When you are ready, slowly open your eyes, take your time to return to the world outside with a greater sense of security and connectedness.
This is a beautiful practice that can help you step into your intuitive self. As you continue this practice through the month of October you may start to notice your third eye open and become more receptive, ultimately reaping the many benefits of a strong 6th ckakra, which include:
- Intuitive knowings
- Strong memory skills
- Empathetic connections
- Deep wisdom and ability to find meaning in life events
- Open mindedness
- Powerful dreams
- Mental stamina and easy meditative states
In addition, it is powerful to set an intention to a diety, Mother Earth (Gaia), Ganesha, Brahma, Shakti, whichever you are most drawn to. You may spend 5 minutes or 5 hours in this practice. Give it a go and let us know your experience.
