I have spent over twenty years pursuing the truth about the third eye, and its history through human evolution and spirituality. Remarkably, both paths have lead me to similar answers. My findings have been remarkable and have lead me to new capabilities. I have so much information about this subject that I think i’ll relate this from a personal point of view. For me the “Third Eye” began with my books on the Kundalini and the seven chakra’s found in Hinduism. (in Hinduism its called “Ajna”, the brow or sixth chakra) In most mystical/spiritual faiths it is believed that the third eye is a concept that refers to an invisible eye that provides perception beyond ordinary sight. Armed with only this basic understanding, I began meditating in closets (for darkness) for long periods of time, during which I would focus on that spot between my eyes, (with my eyes closed) until I began to see light. The light was either lavender or white, never any other color. I did this for many months, several times a week, before I began seeing results. Eventually, the spot between my eyes became sensitive to my thoughts, I could feel an actual physical pressure point between my eyes, and when this feeling was focused on in darkness I began to see the light INTENSELY. It was always accompanied by an overwhelming feeling of euphoria. I became adept at focusing on this point and then guiding the light to different points on my body. I could have the light totally fill up my entire body with warmth and the feeling that I was somehow healing myself. It was exactly like the feeling you get when you kiss someone you love and you get that warm fuzzy feeling in your stomach. I was never able to heal myself of any physical ailment but I always felt much lighter and happier and unafraid as I approached my day after having meditated on the third eye. I was young. I had no idea what I was doing, but I knew I was doing something positive for my soul. I now know so much more that explains those early experiences…….
In ancient times, it is believed (by some) that humans had a functioning third eye in the back of their head that had a physical as well as a spiritual function. Over time, as humans evolved this eye atrophied and sunk into the head and became what we know today as the “pineal gland”. In Theosophy, the third eye is also believed to be connected to the pineal gland. In modern medicine we know these things to be facts……….The pineal gland is about the size of a pea, it is shaped like a miniature pine cone in epithalamus which is in the front and center of the brain, between the eyebrows, and in the groove between the two hemisphere’s of the brain. It is the ONLY organ (aside from the eyes) that detects light. Let me repeat that….it detects LIGHT. It also secretes melatonin, which controls and maintains sleep patterns. These are all medical facts…..now think about that…….controlling sleep patterns would be highly beneficial for practitioners of meditation for obvious reasons…….and perception of light which is what I was experiencing when I had no idea what I was doing. The picture above is an accurate picture of what light looks like during advanced meditation. On top of all of this is the fact that the pineal gland is a vestigial organ. Vestigial meaning an organ that has become dormant because of human evolution and the effects of environment forcing the organ into submission, Like the appendix, which no longer has a use but is a part of the digestive system and thought to have been used to digest leaves,
Now when you put all of this together it seems pretty obvious that the “Third Eye” is not a myth or religious fairy tale. In my personal opinion it is the doorway to the light and the innate ability to heal. To this day I am able to call up the pressure point between my eyes and send a feeling of euphoria throughout my entire body, at will. At the drop of a hat I can call up this warm feeling of healing power that calms and protects me. It’s like a secret weapon I have developed over time through persistence and faith, and its root, ONCE AGAIN……is ENERGY. No matter where you look in the world of Metaphysics there stands a singular truth…..energy is immortal and constantly evolving. The Third eye……one of the roads less traveled and yet lays beckoning to be mastered………thanx for stopping by……more food for thought? or……….more than that……….thanx for stopping by……..much more on the third eye to come……cheers…t
