The Third Eye

2 years, 3 months ago

So I recently started learning about the chakras and opening and balancing them during meditation. When I learned about crystals and their energetic connection to our consciousness and chakras, I went and bought a Tigerseye tumbled crystal (for aid with Third Eye meditation) and a Garnet (one of my birthstones) bracelet for continuous flow of the root and crown chakras.

So last night I took my Tigerseye and placed in in my lap, formed the Ajna hand symbol, and began to meditate. I focused on my breathing and let my thoughts flow freely without speculation. I don’t know how long I was doing it for, but eventually something happened.

It seemed I was in a state of meditation that had detached me from the thoughts that formed and changed in front of my minds eye. It was gradual, but my mind’s eye started to see things more and more solidly. The random objects I was seeing were becoming more realistic, detailed, and “viewable”, and my language center seemed to have quieted down quite a bit. In congruence to this growing sense of intensified second sight, this feeling within my body started to grow as well. It was really, really heavy… like excitement; it was this weird yearning, almost, and it grew and grew until my consciousness started to get antsy, as this has never happened to me in this physical body as far as I can remember. The only thing I can compare the feeling to is a combination of excitement and that crazy need the body has to roll over when you’re falling sleep. It literally felt like my body was getting close and closer to exploding and I chose to stop the meditation.

Looking back, it seemed that due to my focus on the Third Eye chakra and the Tigereye’s presence, I was headed straight for an astral projection. But because I didn’t expect it to happen with my first crystal aided meditation, I wasn’t prepared to let it happen!

Have any of you had an experience like this? What do you think?

@matthewynn, I’ve experienced something like this a few times recently. I’ve been practising meditation and astral projection a fair bit and Ive reached the point you’re talking but not managed to get much further. The first time it happened I stopped right around the time you did. Second time I forced myself to continue. The feelings were the most intense thing I’ve ever felt, and it did feel like my body kind of exploded like you mentioned. I could then physically feel my third eye. And my consciousness started to leave from it, like I was rushing through a tunnel. I stopped at this point, it was just too overwhelming. I’ve reached this point a few times since, but still not fully managed to astral project yet, I’m still getting used to the intensity of it.

@matthewynn, Definitely you were heading for Astral Projection. That is indeed a technique. Letting your mind wander, quiet, and then flow with the ocean-like, ever changing images. After a while they will start to solidify like you said and once they do so focus all attention on them and creating images that you want to see. From there on out let it flow from there.

I’ve had this happen to me when going back to bed after waking up too early. Ending up just lucid dreaming, not astral projecting.
