The third eye is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight, here’s how to open yours!
1) FLOTATION TANKS
Joe Rogan described them as better than Disney Land, he said if people knew how much fun they were, they would be lining the streets to have a go in one!
Getting in the tank is a bit like getting in a coffin, the idea is to deprive all the senses. Total darkness, total silence, oh and of course , the floating. The tank is filled with water and large amounts of Epsom salt rendering you essentially weightless once you get in, with the water heated to body temperature and all other sense deprived it really is probably the closest feeling you will get to floating in space!
The benefits of being in the tank can be felt for days and sometimes weeks afterwards.The tank can be used for a multitude of things, from understanding your deepest self to mentally preparing for a marathon. The tank claims to help users achieve a brain state often only achieved by those who have spent many years perfecting the art of meditation.
2) BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT
Brainwave entrainment is an assisted form of meditation using sound. The premise is that as the two opposing beats synch up so do our minds and bodies.
Supposedly our bodies are naturally synching to rhythms all around us all the time, it’s just we don’t normally notice it.
Ancient teachings have often used this technology, employing the use of things like singing bowls and shamanic drums to help alter the consciousness state of the participant.
Brainwave entertainment claims to create the same brain waves in minutes that traditional meditation may take years for you to achieve.
3) LUCID LIGHT MACHINES
Developed by Dr. Dirk Proeckl, a Neurologist and Psychologist, and Dr. Engelbert Winkler, a Psychologist and Psychotherapist, the lucid light machine stimulates different parts of the brain, namely alpha waves, this results in an optical experience which is entirely determined by the viewer’s consciousness.
Whilst sitting in front of the light with eyes shut, the viewers’ mind automatically creates a series of images, taking them on their own personal trip, it can be a great way to understand new sides of yourself.
It is claimed it would take many years of meditation practice to achieve a similar experience.
There are many different forms of yoga.
Shiva Yoga is one that concentrates on the opening of the elusive third eye. Yoga is all about aligning and opening the energy wheels in the body, when they are all working correctly you should be time travelling and visiting new dimensions in no time.
Research suggests that as many as one in four people can and will spontaneously have an astral projection at some point in their lives.
Some people claim to have developed the ability to leave their body at will, and they claim they can access different layers of reality in a ghostly form.
Astral projection is an art and a skill that can take many years to develop through spiritual practice and meditation some people achieve similar experiences through the uses of drugs such as DMT.
