Amazing Meditation for Opening Third Eye

A key mechanism used for opening a chakra point is by bringing your attention to the physical trigger point or Kshetram.  By attending to this location in the body (the kshetram), one generates sensations which then travel back to the chakra, to stimulate and activate it.

The trigger point for the Third Eye is slightly above the middle of the eyebrows.  So very close to the center of the forehead.  The following technique uses this knowledge and other aspects of yoga pranayama to help you open this chakra.

Here is how it is to be practiced:
1. Sit comfortably and close your eyes.  Keep your back straight.

2. Now take a simple US penny (or other small preferably copper currency from your country), clean it well and then place it between your eyebrows.

3. Now roughly push it up to the center of the forehead with your index finger.  Once you reach the center of your forehead push it in firmly and remove your finger

4. The penny will stay in place as long as your forehead muscles are kept relaxed.  If the penny was to fall during the meditation, just continue with the meditation without it.

5. You feel get wonderful feedback sensation now from the center of the forehead which is the trigger point for opening the Third Eye.

6. Now begin to breathe in the following pattern.  Visualize inhaling through right nostril, with the air as White Light flowing from your nostril to the center of the Third Eye (center of the forehead).

7. Then exhale and visualize the air as White Light, leaving the center of your forehead (where the penny is) and flowing out the left nostril.

8. Now visualize inhaling through left nostril and exhaling through right nostril, again the air is White Light and flowing in this triangular shape.  Coming from the left nostril to the center of the forehead and then leaving the Third Eye and flowing out the right nostril.

9. When you finish one round say "Ten" mentally.  

10. Again visualize breathing in through right, out though left, in through left and out through right and count down to 9.  In this way continue to count down all the way to 1 and then start over at 10 after you finish with 1.

11. Keep this pattern up for the duration of the meditation.  You can start with a few minutes and build up to 20 minutes.  The meditation will produce a strong sensation in the Third Eye and by it's design will really help you concentrate and bring your attention there.  It is a great meditation for thus awakening the Third Eye Chakra. 

Final Thoughts on Third Eye Meditation:
Many of us report feeling sensations in our Third Eye region already, and by consistent use of this penny meditation, you too will soon have such sensations as the Third Eye is activated.  Then you can use the sensations instead of the penny to practice this wonderful technique.  This technique is also very helpful for curing tension headaches and is very effective for stress release, as well as for finding peace during anxious times in life.

Not bad for 1 cent huh :-)?  I really do hope you try this great technique and enjoy it's wonderful benefits :-).

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.

Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.

The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
