Stopping Thought with the Third Eye Exercise
You may be wondering why you're the only person who seems to have trouble meditating. Everyone seems to get along just fine, stopping their minds, relaxing, going into a blissful state of trance. But whenever you try to meditate, your mind races even faster than usual. I have just the technique for you!
This technique utilizes a major charka known as the Third Eye charka. The Third Eye is located in the center of your forehead, between your eyebrows. You may have an easier time focusing between your eyes or even up on your forehead - go with whatever works for you. Now when you place your body awareness on this spot, you will feel a tingling sensation. Don't worry if you don't feel that yet - you will in time. If you do, great. If not, you might try gently placing the tip of your finger in that spot and focusing on the feeling of your finger on your skin.
Once your focus, whether mental body focus or actual finger-touch focus, is on your third eye, concentrate on that feeling. If you have the tingling, become aware of it and allow it to amplify. Breathe deeply, slowly, and rhythmically. If you breathe deeply while focusing on your third eye, an amazing thing happens. Your mind stops cold!
No wild thoughts, no self-conversations, and no remembering, stressing, or worrying can occur in this state. The longer you hold it, the more all of your stress and mental ramblings will vanish. At first they will leave an impression, but they are gone. Practice sitting in this state for about five minutes each day for three or four days. After that, entering into the third-eye focus state will become easy. Later it will become second nature.
When you have control of this state and can summon it instantly whenever you want, begin focusing on your desire. Start by focusing on the third eye, then simultaneously begin thinking about or speaking aloud the desire you wish to manifest. Your attention will be undivided, as you will be using the singular focus power of the third eye meditation, and your desire will get 100% of your energy. This is a powerful trick for working with the Law of Attraction and visualization techniques.
And before long, you will notice that you can return to this state without even needing to focus on the area of your third eye. You will be able to stop your mind whenever you wish, because you will have become accustomed to the mental silence inherent in the third eye meditation. Then you can meditate in any way that you wish, without any worry of getting sucked into your normal mental ramblings. A quiet mind is a powerful mind, so go get started and begin planning for the manifestation of your desires!
