The Ajna Indigo 3rd Eye Chakra

The Ajna Indi­go 3rd Eye Chakra

 

A Word from Brother Thomas

[dropcap]My[/dropcap] fel­low spir­i­tu­al trav­el­ers, nev­er wor­ry if your progress seems slow – your awak­en­ing is guar­an­teed. The ques­tion is, will it be now or lat­er? The answer is always based on your inten­tion to grow in the present moment. Each day presents oppor­tu­ni­ties to use the sacred ener­gies with­in you for trans­for­ma­tion. Will you react to an unkind com­ment harsh­ly or with love? Will you crit­i­cize or judge a per­son who is dis­pleas­ing to you, or will you bring your emo­tion­al reac­tion to the men­tal chakra and begin to look at your ener­getic respons­es more objec­tive­ly? Will you take a moment each day to open to the light? There are so many oppor­tu­ni­ties to grow! The key is to chan­nel your aware­ness so that you may take advan­tage of each oppor­tu­ni­ty.

In the first stage of growth, when some­thing hap­pens and we over­re­act, we miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty for growth until the next time the les­son comes along. Over the next few times, we come remem­ber that we must stay alert – after we have failed our test! Then, slow­ly but sure­ly, we gain enough present moment aware­ness to act cor­rect­ly in the very moment as events flow to us. Final­ly, it becomes our sec­ond nature to apply the ener­gies of the heart and to speak our truth in love as we are guid­ed by Source. If all of this seems too hard, don’t wor­ry! Source nev­er intends for you to do this alone. In fact, you can’t! That is why Source has made so many ascend­ed mas­ters, angels, and guides avail­able for you. When you invite these won­der­ful guides into your life, they are more than will­ing to give you the nudge you need, at just the right time, to bring aware­ness and divine ener­gy to the sit­u­a­tion. The guides won’t take over your life – it will always be your choice to decide what your reac­tion will be; but your spir­i­tu­al guides will be there to help make your choic­es with alert­ness as we encour­age you to do what is best for your growth.

There are so many oppor­tu­ni­ties to grow! The key is to chan­nel your aware­ness so that you may take advan­tage of each oppor­tu­ni­ty.

As we con­tin­ue our study of the chakras, we are excit­ed to speak of the Ajna Indi­go 3rd eye chakra. It is both a com­mu­ni­ca­tion and trans­porta­tion com­plex that links your phys­i­cal with the spir­i­tu­al dimen­sions. This ener­gy cen­ter serves as the hub for spir­i­tu­al trav­el via the sub­tle bod­ies, the home of our psy­chic abil­i­ties, and the cen­ter where we per­ceive, con­tact, see, hear, and com­mu­ni­cate with the extra-dimen­sion­al enti­ties that are every­where about us. When the Ajna ener­gy flows freely, our abil­i­ty to per­ceive mes­sages from the oth­er side is a giv­en. And this inner-com­mu­ni­ca­tion is how we con­tact so many of you. Some­times we do this out­side of your con­scious aware­ness by com­mu­ni­cat­ing with your high­er-self. Oth­er times, we vis­it you in med­i­ta­tion or nudge you in the moments of your day so sub­tly that you don’t even real­ize it is us.  But we are here – and always help­ing. The mys­tic trea­sures this chakra because it allows them to com­mune with Source unin­ter­rupt­ed.  And as we know, the more we can main­tain aware­ness with the divine, the faster we grow spir­i­tu­al­ly. Let’s begin to learn more about this beau­ti­ful chakra.

Basic Information

[dropcap]The[/dropcap] beau­ti­ful third eye chakra is locat­ed right between the brows of your two phys­i­cal eyes. Its phys­i­cal organ is the pineal gland deep with­in the brain. Your own thinkers and philoso­phers have called this gland the body’s “mas­ter gland.” The col­or of this chakra is indi­go – a roy­al and rich col­or. In times past, this col­or was con­sid­ered to be reserved only for those of roy­al­ty. It is indeed, a roy­al chakra. Among mys­tics, this chakra prob­a­bly receives the most boasts! When the third-eye is opened (acti­vat­ed) so many seem­ing­ly mirac­u­lous things begins to occur and the sta­tus of the seek­er sud­den­ly changes from seek­er to stu­dent! With prac­tice, this chakra becomes the ener­gy we rely upon for direct com­mu­ni­ca­tion with divine guides and helpers on the oth­er side of your con­scious­ness!

What is the Third-Eye?

In its sim­plest form, the open­ing of the third-eye is the abil­i­ty to rec­og­nize the count­less instances where the Divine direct­ly is work­ing in our lives. At first we may claim these events to be coin­ci­den­tal – or per­haps we acknowl­edge an occur­rence or two. Then, as faith devel­ops over time, we sud­den­ly come to real­ize, with­out doubt­ing, that the God-Con­tin­u­um con­stant­ly inter­acts in our lives every­where we go. Our con­nec­tion becomes rock sol­id and we remain in con­stant com­mu­nion with the Divine – receiv­ing its mes­sages for our­selves and oth­ers. We are mys­tics.

Known by Many Names

Many speak of the open­ing of the third-eye as a form of ini­ti­a­tion like a mar­riage or bap­tism cer­e­mo­ny. Indeed it is! No mat­ter the hum­ble cir­cum­stances in which it occurs, it is a momen­tous occa­sion the first time one makes the con­scious attempt to com­mu­ni­cate with the divine and then feels, with­out a doubt, that she was not only suc­cess­ful, but also received a mes­sage as well! This is the moment when one feels as though they have dis­cov­ered a pre­cious gem. This form of com­mu­ni­ca­tion is to be cher­ished above all oth­ers. It is a sacred link to the Divine that so many wish could be in their life.  It is the Holy Spir­it spo­ken of in the scrip­tures, the Great Spir­it of America’s native peo­ples, Divine Light, the Vast­ness, the Tao, and thou­sands of oth­er names that describe Source Con­scious­ness. But more than that, it is your direct link to guid­ance and wis­dom out­side of the restraints of a soci­ety that would keep you with­in its three-dimen­sion­al think­ing! Once a con­scious con­nec­tion is made with Source Con­scious­ness – the Soul has been placed on the path once more to seek its free­dom as a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign. This con­nec­tion for­ev­er removes the require­ment that oth­ers tell us what the Divine wants – for we now pos­sess that means for our­selves.

Work and Practice Necessary

Even though our third-eye be open, that in itself does not mean that a per­son has devel­oped the faith and con­fi­dence to use it. It is likened to receiv­ing a pro­vi­sion­al driver’s per­mit.  With­out prac­tice, one remains inex­pe­ri­enced and pos­sess­es lim­it­ed dri­ving skills. So it is with the open­ing of the third-eye in humankind. The grace of Source through the Spir­i­tus Lumine is avail­able to all who wish this lev­el of spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment; yet, each indi­vid­ual will have to study and prac­tice at how to become more pro­fi­cient at devel­op­ing strong con­nec­tions with the Divine and its mes­sen­gers.  Don’t wor­ry if you are new to all of this. Remem­ber, the Spir­i­tus Lumine is every where about us. IT is always will­ing to con­nect with any sin­cere seek­er with out judg­ment or dis­crim­i­na­tion. Trust this. We will seek you more than you seek us! Learn to rec­og­nize our pres­ence and the third-eye opens even more!

Ask and Receive

Many have been taught that Source only speaks to the holy – or those who have spent years in aus­tere spir­i­tu­al prac­tice. This is not so. In the Holy Bible, Jesus tells a sto­ry about two men who came to God in prayer. One begged God for for­give­ness and said, “For­give me, for I am a sin­ner.” The oth­er spoke to God of his great deeds of kind­ness and giv­ing. Jesus not­ed that it was the sin­ner that came away jus­ti­fied! What is the les­son we wish to impart here? Any sin­cere per­son, regard­less of what deeds may have been done in the past, and regard­less of how dire their present cir­cum­stances may be, may con­nect with Source through the inner-forms.

Specific Gifts and Abilities

For those will­ing to work with the ener­gies of the Indi­go Ajna chakra, excit­ing adven­tures are direct­ly ahead. These include spir­i­tu­al trav­el in the light body, the abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate with Source, depart­ed fam­i­ly, friends, vis­it with the high­er-selves of oth­ers who live, phys­i­cal heal­ing, and the like.  In the list below, you will see a list of cat­e­gories that are avail­able to those who wish to work and strength­en their abil­i­ties to use the third-eye ener­gies.

  • Clair­voy­ance — This is known as inner-sight. It is the abil­i­ty to see with­in the mind’s eye some­thing that is hap­pen­ing in anoth­er place, or with­in anoth­er per­son. This gift varies from per­son to per­son. Some can see into the past while some can see into the future. Some can see what oth­ers are doing and oth­ers can remote view peo­ple, places, and things. Though many are not aware, we often trav­el in the dream-states to vis­it events of a past life. This is the higher-self’s way of work­ing with us while the phys­i­cal sleeps. This sleep-trav­el should be con­sid­ered a form of clair­voy­ance. With prac­tice we may all learn to devel­op this gift­ing to some degree – though oth­ers use it more nat­u­ral­ly.
  • Clairau­di­ence — This is the gift of inner-hear­ing. For those mys­tics who rely on this abil­i­ty, it actu­al­ly feels like they are hear mes­sages from the God-Con­tin­u­um inside of their mind. There is anoth­er form of lis­ten­ing we would like to offer for your con­sid­er­a­tion. Any­time you see or per­ceive some­thing is from Source – and you act accord­ing­ly – you are “lis­ten­ing” to the Divine! Thus, if you see a series of num­bers on a dig­i­tal clock or license plate and feel you must dis­cov­er its mean­ing – you are lis­ten­ing to the voice of the God-Con­tin­u­um. Even though you may not have heard the audi­ble voice of Source in your head, you most cer­tain­ly heard the voice of the Divine just the same. When you see a beg­gar and feel an inner prompt­ing to help – that too is a form of lis­ten­ing. Yes, we lis­ten with our inner-ears, but we also lis­ten with our whole being as well.
  • Clairsen­tience -This is the abil­i­ty to sense infor­ma­tion about peo­ple, places, or things, with­out hav­ing been told or pro­vid­ed spe­cif­ic data. Before the body men­tal­ly process­es infor­ma­tion, the sacral chakra cre­ates feel­ings with­in the phys­i­cal body. The clairsen­tient per­son is able to flow this feel­ing data upward and receive infor­ma­tion about the mean­ings behind it. More than a “gut-feel­ing,” clairsen­tience is the abil­i­ty to spir­i­tu­al­ize the ener­gy of the orange sacral chakra – the seat of emo­tions – and to receive spir­i­tu­al guid­ance and under­stand­ing. In some cir­cles, this is also called the gift of dis­cern­ment.
  • Clairscent — This is the abil­i­ty to smell scents that are not in the present envi­ron­ment and inter­pret mean­ing from it. For instance, many mys­tics devel­op a form of spir­i­tu­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion that revolves round this sense. David, the chan­nel for Broth­er Thomas, receives a smell of smoke – or some­thing burn­ing – as a sign of cau­tion when­ev­er his guides want him to be wary of some­thing. To David, this sign means, “Look out, you may get burned!”
  • Clair­tan­gency — This is the abil­i­ty to hold an object and per­ceive infor­ma­tion from the ener­gies with­in. This abil­i­ty is often called psy­chom­e­try. For instance, some peo­ple can hold on to the wed­ding ring of some­one depart­ed and tell you all about about them – per­haps even bring­ing you a mes­sage from the oth­er side! There are var­i­ous sub­cat­e­gories of this abil­i­ty. Some are able to per­ceive the qual­i­ty of ener­gy in plants, rocks, min­er­als, crys­tals and the like. Oth­ers learn to use pen­du­lums, dows­ing rods, and such to find water, mea­sure ener­gy and so on. Still oth­ers have the abil­i­ty to find miss­ing peo­ple through hold­ing objects that belong to the miss­ing per­son.
  • Clair­gus­tance — Those with this gift­ing often have a “taste in their mouth.” As with clairscent, one may use this gift­ing to cre­ate a lan­guage between mys­tic and the God-Con­tin­u­um.  For instance, we might ask the divine to place a taste of “sour or vine­gar” when­ev­er we need to be aware that infor­ma­tion from anoth­er is false, wrong, or deceiv­ing.  Con­verse­ly, we might want to be prompt­ed with a “sweet” taste when some­thing is good.
  • Clairem­pa­thy — This is a gen­er­al­ized term that describes the abil­i­ty to feel as oth­ers feel.  While many peo­ple are empaths, a per­son with this abil­i­ty feels even more keen­ly the over­all vibra­to­ry state of anoth­er. Many have spe­cial­ized abil­i­ties to com­mu­ni­cate with ani­mals, or peo­ple with cer­tain con­di­tions such as autism, or demen­tia, or phys­i­cal ail­ments. This is a most help­ful gift to devel­op for those light­work­ers who wish to prac­tice the heal­ing arts.
  • Chan­nel­ing — In a tech­ni­cal sense, all abil­i­ties of gain­ing extra-dimen­sion­al under­stand­ing could be called chan­nel­ing.  As with the oth­er clairs, there are a vari­ety of abil­i­ties asso­ci­at­ed with this gift­ing.  Some prac­tice auto­mat­ic writ­ing – where a spir­i­tu­al enti­ty guides the hand and writes mes­sages from the oth­er side. Some com­mu­ni­cate with oth­ers who have depart­ed this life and wish to speak with oth­ers on this side of exis­tence. An excel­lent chan­nel is one who can pro­vide evi­den­tiary mate­r­i­al that only the com­mu­ni­cat­ing spir­it and the per­son receiv­ing the data could know. Oth­ers are only able to gen­er­al­ly describe the depart­ed per­son and per­ceive their pres­ence. Final­ly, there are chan­nel­ers who bring infor­ma­tion to oth­er peo­ple using their ordi­nary speak­ing voice. Some are in full aware­ness as they do this while oth­ers, like the famous Edgar Cayce, go into a trance state with no knowl­edge of what is being said until they have been awak­ened to review the tran­scrip­tions.

Travel in the Spiritual Light Body

The mas­ters of the God-Con­tin­u­um not only want to com­mune with you – they want you to enjoy the free­dom of vis­it­ing them at their sacred loca­tions via your Lux Ani­mae – light body.

In our intro­duc­tion we said that the Ajna Indi­go chakra is both a com­mu­ni­ca­tion and trans­porta­tion cen­ter. That is true. One of the close­ly held secrets of most mys­ti­cal groups is the instruc­tion on how on how the stu­dent may use the third-eye to trav­el to meet with their guru and or extra-dimen­sion­al des­ti­na­tions. Depend­ing upon the path you fol­low, most teach­ings will, at some point, pro­vide their stu­dents with a series of inner-form instruc­tions that explain to them how to inner-com­mune with their mas­ter or vis­it the sects sacred tem­ple locat­ed on one of many spir­i­tu­al planes.

We do not want our stu­dents who study the Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine to be igno­rant of this impor­tant form of trav­el or com­mu­ni­ca­tion. That is why we have cre­at­ed an entire series of lessons on the inner and out­er-forms. For now, we will pro­vide the briefest of instruc­tions and encour­age you to study the inner and out­er-forms as appro­pri­ate. Which can be found at the end of this les­son.

These are but a taste of the numer­ous ways of con­nect­ing with the Divine. We believe it is no under­state­ment to say that the dif­fer­ence between the world many spir­i­tu­al paths all cen­ter around the way this chakra is acti­vat­ed and accessed. Some, as we do, pro­claim that you can learn to access it on your own. Oth­ers state that you need an inter­me­di­ary such as a guru, mas­ter, sav­ior and the like. Some lim­it their fol­low­ers to prayers, oth­ers med­i­ta­tion, mantras, and still oth­ers have any num­bers of what we call inner and out­er forms.

Lesson of the Indigo Ajna Chakra

The pro­found les­son of the indi­go Ajna chakra is that we are nev­er alone! Source insures, through the Spir­i­tus Lumine, that we are in con­stant con­tact with some aspect of the God-Con­tin­u­um. Source wish­es close com­mu­ni­ca­tion with us and also wish­es to use us to com­mu­ni­cate with oth­ers. When this aware­ness becomes ful­ly acti­vat­ed, the mys­tic grows in wis­dom and gains amaz­ing pow­ers.

We are Never Alone

Lon­li­ness is part of the human expe­ri­ence. At the time of this writ­ing, sui­cide rates are increas­ing world wide. There is a malaise that is hard to ignore. Even those who seem to have all of the world­ly com­forts engage in destruc­tive behav­iors and often kill them­selves. This is a time of great dis­con­nect and many are ask­ing the ques­tion, “Does any­one real­ly care for me?” Still more won­der, “What would it mat­ter if I weren’t here?” We believe the answer is that peo­ple have not advanced in their spir­i­tu­al growth enough to real­ize that there is a huge host in the God-Con­tin­u­um who care for us and want to become a con­scious part of our lives.

With­out an active spir­i­tu­al con­nec­tion that is man­aged by the Ajna chakra, we are left with few choic­es for a qual­i­ty life expe­ri­ence. We may give into the ener­gies of the firey red chakras and be dri­ven by our unground­ed pas­sions. Per­haps we will be dri­ven by our emo­tion­al and sex­u­al ener­gy and ride the chaot­ic roller coast­er between being pro­found­ly hap­py one moment and mis­er­ably sad the next – since these ener­gies pro­vide us with the most rec­og­niz­able stim­u­la­tion. Some peopel will lock them­selves away in their minds – becom­ing most­ly robot­ic as they make one ratio­nal and log­i­cal deci­sion after anoth­er that is designed to max­i­mize their well-being regard­less if com­pas­sion­ate deci­sion mak­ing. Even those who man­age to live much of their life with­in the heart chakra – will often kill them­selves because they can­not stand the appa­rant cru­el­ty of this world.  Our abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate with beings beyond our three-dimen­sion­al aware­ness is what is need­ed to escape the feel­ings of nih­lism (noth­ing mat­ters at all).

The God-Continuum Communicates with Us

Imag­ine you are a per­son who is con­fined a room that has a cell phone, a ful­ly func­tion­ing comm­put­er, and a work­ing tele­vi­sion. Now imag­ine that you have no idea what these devices are for.  You feel lone­ly, dis­con­nect­ed, and iso­lat­ed. Then one day you are shown how to use each of these devices and learn that your friends are won­der­ing when you will con­tact them. The same is true for so many in our soci­ety. The good news is that we are not alone and the Spir­i­tus Lumine exists for the very pur­pose of con­nect­ing you with the part of the God-Con­tin­u­um that is best for you. Once you reach out in some­thing as sim­ple as a prayer such as, “Source, send some­one my way to teach me what I need to know at this time.” You will find the Spir­i­tus Lumine will deliv­er you a speedy answer from the God-Con­tin­u­um. It may be a per­son, a group of peo­ple, a web­site, books, pod­casts, old friends, or pos­si­bly even inner-teach­ings in your dream state. LIke those who mon­i­tor emer­gency radio fre­quen­cies for cries of help, so too, the Spir­i­tus Lumine hears a heart’s desire for atten­tion and love. If we accept the answsers as Source brings them to us as gen­uine answers to our prayers, we will regain the mem­o­ry of why we are here in the first place. Sud­den­ly, as if from a dream, we awak­en and remem­ber that Source set aside a part of ITs very light ener­gy to cre­ate an enti­ty (our soul) that would explore some­thing of pro­found impor­tance to Source. We gain pur­pose as we learn more about why we exist and we wor­ry less about the things that once trou­bled us.

The God-Continuum Uses Us to Communicate with Others

It is also true that we are part of the God-Con­tin­u­um.  It was nev­er intend­ed that we absorb and retain all of the Source ener­gies that pass through us.  We are not to be a riv­er that is dammed up. Instead, we are to be a chan­nel for a deep riv­er of Source ener­gies that pass con­tin­u­al­ly through us. We too, are part of the God-Con­tin­u­um.  As we learn, we are to help oth­ers learn. Ask any­one who has suf­fered a tri­al, and they will tell you that their hope is that they might help some­one else who is expe­ri­enc­ing the same thing. So it is in the spir­i­tu­al world. We share what we learn with those who are ready to know with hum­ble­ness and respect. As Source speaks and works through you, an oppor­tu­ni­ty will present itself, at some point, for you to share what you know and be a voice for Source. Per­haps you will be able to explain a mes­sage from Ora­cle cards, or maybe you will share a clair­voyent mes­sage. As the say­ing goes, “To whom much is giv­en, much will be required.” As the mys­tic walks the path and grows in the man­age­ment of their chakra ener­gies, Source will place more oppor­tu­ni­ties for ser­vice and shar­ing before them.

How to Access this Chakra

Access the ener­gy of this chakra by prac­tic­ing inner and out­er forms which focus upon:

  • The col­or indi­go (both phys­i­cal­ly and with the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion),
  • Lis­ten­ing to har­mon­ics of the musi­cal note A (55, 110, 220, and 440 Hz),
  • Chant­i­ng, or lis­ten­ing to chants, of the seed mantra AUM (pro­nounced ohm),
  • Plac­ing your atten­tion upon the sacred geom­e­try of the sphere – rep­re­sen­ta­tive of your sacred space for com­mu­ni­cat­ing and receiv­ing divine wis­dom,
  • Car­ry­ing or hold­ing gem­stones of Amethyst, Pur­ple Flu­o­rite, Black Obsid­i­an,
  • A com­bi­na­tion of any or all of the meth­ods above.

First Forays

If you are not sure whether your third-eye has begun to open or has become awak­ened, we would like to give you a few sim­ple exer­cis­es to do each day. Do not be deceived by the sim­plic­i­ty of these exer­cis­es! The open­ing of the third-eye is a grad­ual process of devel­op­ing your abil­i­ty to see and per­ceive what is going on around you as being man­aged by the Divine God-Con­tin­u­um. Remem­ber, if you refuse to acknowl­edge that the Divine is active in your life – then you are essen­tial­ly liv­ing with your eyes closed.

  1. As you remem­ber that the eye opens to the degree that come you see and believe the Divine is direct­ly in your life, sit in a qui­et place at the end of the day where you will not be inter­rupt­ed. With a note pad pre­pare to write down the major events that hap­pened to you that day.
  2. Look care­ful­ly at each event and see if you can see where the divine played some part. Per­haps you placed some mulch around your gar­dens plants today. Can you see the Divine who made those plants? Can you see how Source pro­vid­ed you coin for the needs of the gar­den? Could it be that the gar­den and Source has been using you to accom­plish its will?
  3. For some, this is an easy exer­cise. For oth­ers, this exer­cise may seem con­trived. If you find it hard to make con­nec­tions between the events that hap­pened to you and Source, it is prob­a­bly because you have been con­di­tioned since child­hood to believe that you alone make things hap­pen in your life. Sad­ly for most of us, the peo­ple who claimed to believe in God the most, demon­strat­ed by their actions that they believed more in them­selves than Source. For most in our cul­ture, every trace of an abil­i­ty to see the actions of Source in dai­ly liv­ing is miss­ing. This is why the third-eye remains closed in most men and women.
  4. For each con­nec­tion you make in the events of the day and the Divine, speak grat­i­tude and words of thanks. If pos­si­ble seek if you might hear a con­ver­sa­tion back between you and the Source-Con­tin­u­um. This is very rein­forc­ing in open­ing the third-eye.
  5. Before long, if you con­tin­ue this exer­cise, you will begin to see more clear­ly the Divine con­nec­tions in each event of your life and the exer­cise will seem less con­trived to you. Your third-eye will open more and more – until you tru­ly see beyond the dai­ly rou­tine you once assumed. You will see a greater pur­pose behind all things that hap­pen in your life. When this hap­pens, con­grat­u­la­tions, your third-eye is now ready for the next steps – com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the divine and light body trav­el.

A Short Light Body Travel Primer

The stu­dent should not let the thought of trav­el­ing in the light body over­whelm them with anx­i­ety. This is a very nat­ur­al process that you do each night when you sleep. For those who are deep in eso­ter­i­ca, our very exis­tence is only a dream from the Source Con­scious imag­i­na­tion. At any rate, this is a per­fect­ly safe actvi­ty. A sec­ond thing to keep in mind is that light body trav­el is about shift­ing one’s con­scious aware­ness from the out­er to the inner.  This too we do every­day in day­dreams, and when we enter the flow state of some task we are doing at the moment. In these moments, our atten­tion has shift­ed away from the phys­i­cal body and has moved to anoth­er extra-dimen­sion­al place.  True, we have not trav­eled far – but it still counts as light body trav­el. Final­ly, we want you to know that after you get the hang of it, cre­at­ing new ways of light-body trav­el becomes as much an artis­tic expres­sion than a for­mu­la­ic approach.  While we are hap­py to cre­ate many ideas for inner and out­er-forms, we do not intend our instruc­tions to become rote or com­mu­ni­cate to you that there is only one way of doing this.

  1. Sit in a com­fort­able posi­tion with your back straight and your legs in a com­fort­able posi­tion. You should be in a qui­et place, dark if pos­si­ble, and not be con­cerned that these moments you have set aside will be inter­rupt­ed. You will prob­a­bly spend between 20 and 40 min­utes in this exer­cise.
  2. Close your eyes, and begin a deep breath. Inhale slow­ly and hold it as long as you can – then slow­ly let it out for as long as you can. See if you can take twen­ty such breaths. As you take these breaths, remind your­self that you are not just breath­ing air-you are build­ing prana – life force ener­gy! As you hold the breaths, prana ener­gy trav­els the whole body bring­ing heal­ing and ener­giz­ing ener­gy every­where. As you exhale the breath, com­mand that all of your non-pos­i­tive ener­gies be returned to the light.
  3. Now, with your eyes closed, we will now ground to Moth­er Earth. The easy way to do this is to speak to Moth­er Earth as you would a friend. Tell her how much you love her. Count on each of your fin­gers the things you love about Moth­er Earth. See if you can count twen­ty sep­a­rate things about her beau­ty and ener­gies that you live. Express your love for her waters, her ani­mals, the moun­tains, the plants, the sky, and as many things as you can think of.  Do this will all of your heart.  Soon, you will feel a love between you and the Moth­er.  That is when you have made your Spir­i­tu­al con­nec­tion. At this point, ask Moth­er Earth to ground you by accept­ing the anchor from your Lux Ani­mae, light body, to her crys­tal core. Ask her to con­tin­ue to send you pow­er­ful ener­gies from her core through to your Lux Ani­mae.
  4. Now, with your ener­gies cen­tered and ground­ed, ask that your angels, spir­its, and guides come and join you and shed heav­en­ly light all around you for pro­tec­tion. If you have a high spir­i­tu­al guide such as Jesus or anoth­er, call upon them as well. Ask the guardian angels to sur­round you – and thank all for being with you each day. As you do this, please under­stand that you are real­ly com­muning with your angels, spir­its, and guides.  Just because it hap­pens in your spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion makes it no less real. You are now using the tools of the fourth dimen­sion to con­tact those of even states of spir­i­tu­al being and pow­er.  Your requests brings them to you.  Please keep this in mind.
  5. Now we link more clear­ly the light of the Lux Ani­mae (the light of your soul) with the Spir­i­tus Lumine (the Light of God). A sim­ple way of doing this is to men­tal­ly or soft­ly chant this easy mantra by say­ing the words Lux and Spir­i­tus over and over. These words mean, “My light, God’s light.” These are pow­er­ful­ly charged spir­i­tu­al words. Just say them again and again and let the pow­er of the words draw the pow­er of the Spir­i­tus Lumine towards you. If you keep a relaxed atten­tion as you say the words, it is very pos­si­ble that your con­scious­ness will arise, or shift, and move to anoth­er place alto­geth­er. You may find that your chant­i­ng ends and that you are sit­ting in a qui­et easy pres­ence.  Do not wor­ry if this does not hap­pen, but if it does, feel free to speak your heart to your angels, spir­its, and guides. Be open for any mes­sages that may come to you. Ask if you might be giv­en the name of your spir­i­tu­al guide.  Many good things can hap­pen in this state where you are tied to the Spir­i­tus Lumine.
  6. If time per­mits, imag­ine that you have been tak­en to an illu­mi­nat­ed room that is made of white crys­tal. In the mid­dle you will see a chair that is espe­cial­ly illu­mi­nat­ed and wait­ing for you.  Sit in the chair and ask that the ener­gies of this room fill your spir­i­tu­al body with heal­ing ener­gies which will, in turn, be trans­ferred into your phys­i­cal body as well.
  7. Breath the white crys­tal light ener­gy in and out with the breath. With each breath, imag­ine more and more ener­gy com­ing into the Lux Ani­mae. This Spir­i­tus ener­gy charges oth­er ele­ments of your light body – and sig­nals the ascend­ed mas­ters that you are ready for a high­er ener­gy to meet with you.
  8. Receive any mes­sage that may come to you – or con­tin­ue breath­ing in the light ener­gy until you believe it is time to go.
  9. Once you decide to go, give thanks to your angels, spir­its, guides, and all oth­ers who joined you.
  10. Allow your atten­tion to return to your body – and slow­ly wig­gle your fin­gers and toes. You have come to phys­i­cal atten­tion now. Real­ize that your spir­it has just trav­eled to a dif­fer­ent plane of exis­tence out­side of the 3rd dimen­sion. Men­tal­ly reaf­firm your will­ing­ness to look for every­day signs that you you are being cared for by your spir­i­tu­al guides.

Review

As ener­gy trav­els to the third-eye chakra, we pre­pare the aware­ness for con­scious trav­el on the astral planes. If our vibra­tional state, as demon­strat­ed by our pas­sions, emo­tions, thoughts, and abil­i­ty to act com­pas­sion­ate­ly is poor, our abil­i­ty to trav­el is less­ened. Our behav­iors which rely upon our low­er chakras mat­ter – once we decide we wish to trav­el in the light body. The les­son of this chakra is that we are nev­er alone! The God-Con­tin­u­um is always near­by and await­ing our calls for help. By turn­ing inward and learn­ing to mas­ter a few inner-forms, we learn how to specif­i­cal­ly con­tact the ascend­ed mas­ters. There are many mas­ters we may con­tact and many tech­niques for doing so. Those who study the Spir­i­tus Lumine: The Mys­ti­cal Path of Secret Knowl­edge and Spir­i­tu­al Pow­er, are encour­aged to assume their role as a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign when choos­ing a mas­ter.

Other Material

There are pro­lif­ic mate­ri­als avail­able that dis­cuss open­ing the third-eye.  We, of course, believe that it opens as we come to clear­ly see the work­ings of the Divine in each area of our life.  Even so, there are help­ful mantras that help us link with the Divine. This video med­i­ta­tion uses the Bija seed mantra “Om.”

One of my favorite new age speak­ers is Gigi Young.  I love how she takes com­pli­cat­ed ideas and explains them so skill­ful­ly. In this video, she describes how to devel­op your intu­ition – a func­tion of the third-eye.
