What is the third eye? The Third Eye is a natural part of every person, but it’s a “meta” organ. In other words: it consists of all the senses and mind working together as a larger more powerful sensory organ. The Third Eye is a very clever bit of natural evolution: a meta organ designed to sense, connect to patterns and then relay that data back in overlays of information on top of your other senses.
In layman’s terms the third eye is located in the center of the forehead and is often used by mystics and energy healers, who can see the paranormal including: Buddhas, gods, animals, ghosts, demons, and is similar to dream like states, where there is no limits to imagination and entering other dimensions with higher vibrations.
Anyone interested in learning more about opening your third eye could find a master teacher or learn on their own from the internet. Caution when the third eye is opened it can have consequences that you are not used too and can be a bit intimidating while seeing and learning about other dimensions.That is the reason it is recommended to work with a professional master on the opening of the third eye.
When we begin third eye meditation we will begin to see glimpses of various colors rotating around us, crystal clear visions of many things, including: unanswered questions, unusual sounds, and actually see our masters in their original forms. With full concentration of the senses… everything turns into a bright light which can lead toward Enlightenment.
The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. The third eye is referred to the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.
The area between the eyebrows, the sixth chakra known as the ‘agna’ meaning ‘command’, is the seat of concealed wisdom. It is the centre point wherein all experience is gathered in total concentration. According to the tantric cult, when during meditation the latent energy (‘kundalini’) rises from the base of the spine towards the head, this ‘agna’ is the probable outlet for this potent energy. The red ‘kumkum’ between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration. It is also the central point of the base of the creation itself — symbolizing auspiciousness and good fortune.
The Red Dot known as the bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating of all forms of body decoration.Women of India display this mark or their marriage status. Hindus attach great importance to this ornamental mark on the forehead between the two eyebrows — a spot considered a major nerve point in human body since ancient times. Also loosely known as ‘tika’, ‘pottu’, ‘sindoor’, ’tilak’, ’tilakam’, and ‘kumkum’, a bindi is usually a small or a big eye-catching round mark made on the forehead as adornment.
