FEELING PRESSURE ON MY THIRD EYE
Question: "I am getting tingling in the middle of the forehead, it is just like a heartbeat. Why is it happening? Please explain."
Feeling pressure on your third eye in the middle of your forehead is one of the symptoms of third eye opening, and tingling or pulsing like a heartbeat can be third eye opening vibrations. The third eye is also called the "brow chakra" or the 6th chakra, and it is the center of your intuition in the world. When your third eye opens, it means that your intuition is increasing, allowing you to see life and the world more clearly.
The Third Eye can be called the "all-seeing eye" because you can see and perceive many more levels and dimensions of truth and reality. In ancient times, seers were often blinded so they would not be distracted by the illusions of physical sight. Insight is far more powerful than eyesight, so you can see much more accurately with the minds' eye.
If you are wondering how to develop power of the third eye, you can start by closing your eyes gently, and focus all of your attention on the middle of your forehead. Allow the feeling of tingling or pulsing, or feeling pressure on your third eye. Simply relax, and focus light in that area. Imagine that inside your forehead is like a blank screen, and allow the Universe to project images onto that screen. At first you may see only light, but as you continue meditating to open the third eye, you may start to "see" symbols, images and other impressions. Pay attention to them, because they can be very quick and fleeting, like dreams. Do not be too eager or anxious, because impatience can stop the flow of intuitive impressions - simply relax, let it come to you, and let your guides and the Universe communicate with you.
You can visualize that there is a beautiful gem (like a diamond, amethyst or ruby) in the center of your forehead. This will help you focus your intuitive energy, and it will also protect your third eye as it opens so you are not overwhelmed with psychic impressions. The Hindus place a bindi (usually a jewel or a dot) on the brow chakra because it is believed that all energy in the human body is generated to this point, and wearing the bindi concentrates it. The Kundalini energy rises from the base of the spine and moves towards the head; a bindi placed between the eyebrows retains the vital energy in the human body and promotes a high level of concentration.
The third eye is the seat of concealed wisdom, and the place of knowledge and understanding. It is the command center of consciousness. There are ways of using your third eye to communicate with others - this is known as telepathy. Humans and animals are naturally telepathic, while spoken language is a learned and rather primitive form of communication. The third eye is the center of telepathy, which allows for pure mind-to-mind communication. You can effectively communicate with animals using telepathy, because animals think in images and symbols - if you don't want your pet on the sofa, do not think of the sofa itself, but instead send the image of your pet on the floor next to the sofa. You can also communicate telepathically with other people, but this requires more practice and concentration. Working with telepathy is one of the ways for how to develop power of the third eye.
You can also work with your third eye to improve your memory. Close your eyes, and gently rub your third eye with your finger in a circular motion, relaxing and calling forth what you choose to remember. Your mind stores everything like a computer - rubbing your third eye brings the information forward in your consciousness. You can also use this method for dream recall. Before going to sleep, you can program yourself to remember your dreams by rubbing your third eye in a circular motion, saying three times "I remember my dreams".
Creating visionary art using third eye is another method for how to develop power of the third eye. You can do this in two ways. The first is to paint or draw with your eyes closed, intuitively choosing colors and allowing the flow of pure creativity. The second method is to close your eyes and "look" at the blank screen behind your forehead. Breathe and relax, and allow images to be projected on your mind's eye, then open your eyes and paint or draw these images.
There is also another way of how to develop power of the third eye. With your physical eyes open, look for a blank wall or an empty space. Breathe and relax, and allow your physical vision to relax. Use that empty space as a blank screen, allowing your guidance to project intuitive images and impressions. Again, recognize that these will be quick and fleeting, and you may not necessarily understand what you are seeing at first. The Universe communicates with symbols, just like in dreams, and you must take some time to determine what these symbols mean to you. The easiest way to do this is to close your eyes and imagine that symbol, or become that symbol, then feel what that symbol means to you and what it is trying to tell you. Unless it is a message for someone else, the symbols that you receive will be meaningful to you in some way, because the Universe communicates directly with you.
There are two main ways that we receive intuitive guidance and information. One is through the top of the head (the crown chakra) which receives energy and information directly from our guides and from the Universe. This is one of the ways that we receive ideas and inspiration. When the crown chakra is opening, there can be a feeling of tingling at the top of the head, or pressure, or heat; headaches at the top of the head can occur when information is trying to come through but the crown chakra is closed, so it is best to take deep breaths and imagine the crown opening and receiving beams of light.
The second way that we receive intuitive information is through the third eye or brow chakra. This allows us to receive and perceive information in our world about other people, places, things, and energies. This is one of the ways that we receive warnings, or that we perceive other people's true intentions or "true colors". You can use the power of the third eye to see auras: look around a person's head and shoulders, and look just beyond them, allowing your eyes to relax. You may see a haze of white energy of varying thickness, or you may perceive different colors around them. (It is easiest to do this in front of a white wall or plain background.) You can also see auras around plants and animals this way.
Feeling pressure on your third eye, or tingling, or feeling a throbbing like a heartbeat, are often third eye opening vibrations. (Of course, you should check with a doctor to make sure it is not related to your cardiovascular system.) Intuition involves the co-operation between the heart and the mind. The mind receives information, and the heart must feel out that information to determine how you should respond to it. Feeling the heartbeat in your third eye is directly connecting your heart and mind. Closing your eyes and trusting how you feel is one of the best ways for how to develop power of the third eye. When you close your physical eyes, and practice meditating to open the third eye, you access the all-seeing power of the mind's eye.
