allvirtue asked: Might be a dumb question, but how do you open the third eye, 6th chakra? I've been meditating for months and nothing. Is there a certain meditation or something i'm not doing right?
The idea of chakras opening and whatnot is a western new age concept. While in the East chakras are part of an energy map of the body, they are in no way necessary for meditation and self-realization.
If you are fixated on ‘opening the third eye’ and whatnot, there are tons of books and new age blogs you can turn to for information. Even just googling “how to open the third eye chakra” will find you some techniques.
My focus, however, is total peace through the emergence from the illusion of separation. While the meditation technique that I use rests your attention on the third eye, there is nothing you are trying to do except rest your attention there.
If you meditate regularly, your chakras will take care of themselves. They are complex imaginations, just like the majority of this world. Sometimes it is useful to play with your chakras, and you may see me talk about that at times.
But my guru has never given any teachings regarding the chakras because they simply aren’t necessary in his personal experience and can often become distractions.
That which you are seeking through opening your third eye chakra will come on its own through daily meditation.
Namaste, brother. :) May your path be blessed.
