Are you ready to give it a try? Let’s do it!
The main focus in this short, simple exercise is visualization. Are you a visual person? That is, when someone tells you to imagine a tree, can you see a tree in your mind? If you are a visual person, this psychic development exercise will help you to strengthen that ability.
But if you’re not a visual person, don’t despair. If you struggle with seeing things in your mind’s eye, following these steps will help. Don’t be discouraged if your first experience with this meditation is difficult or unsuccessful. If you’re not very good at visualizing quite yet, it may take a bit more practice and patience.
Step One: Get Comfortable
Begin this exercise by choosing a quiet place to sit and relax. This may take you a few minutes. Some people prefer sitting upright when practicing clairvoyance meditation. But this is not necessary. Find a position in which you can be comfortable, and settle into it.
Step Two: Breathe Properly
So you’ve found a quiet place and you’re relaxed. Now, close your eyes, and take some deep breaths. Breathe in deeply through your nose, and breathe out through your mouth. Let all tension leave your body.
A common mistake for beginners in this step is breathing shallowly from your chest. If you’re new to meditation, try placing your hand on your stomach. When you breathe in, you should feel your stomach expand. This will ensure nice, deep breaths.
Step Three: Begin Clairvoyance Meditation
You’re quiet, relaxed and breathing deeply. Now, with your eyes closed, visualize the number 1. It doesn’t matter how big or small the digit is. It doesn’t matter what color it is. Just focus on seeing that image, that number 1, in your mind.
You may begin to feel tingling in your forehead, right between your eyebrows. This is where the third eye chakra is located, so this sensation is completely normal. Actually, it’s a good sign of psychic awakening!
But if you’re not feeling anything like that at all, that’s okay, too. You may start feeling something after you’ve practiced some more. Some people struggle when they begin clairvoyance meditation. This is common, and it gets easier with practice.
If you are having a tough time, and can’t make room in your mind for that number 1 because your grocery list keeps crowding it out, take another deep breath and keep trying. Redirect yourself back to what you were doing.
Another helpful tip is to start out doing this for just a couple minutes. Then, as it starts to get easier, you can gradually stretch out the time you spend in meditation.
Step Four: Keep Counting
You’re relaxed, you’re breathing deeply, and you see the number 1 in your mind. Great! Now hold the image in your mind for a few seconds.
When you’re comfortable with this process, move onto the number 2, then 3, and so on, all the way through to the number 10. When you can close your eyes and easily see the numbers 1 through 10 in sequence, you’ve mastered this step!
If you’re struggling with this step, try making things more concrete. Draw a large, prominent number 1 on a piece of paper. Write it large with a permanent marker, use a bright piece of paper, or jazz it up by using a brightly colored crayon. Now stare at the image you drew for 10 to 30 seconds. Then close your eyes and see if you can visualize the image you’ve been staring at. This little trick can help a lot!
Step Five: Moving Forward
When you get bored with numbers, which you almost certainly will, move o nto colors, or flowers, or anything else you can think of that you may enjoy visualizing. It only takes a few minutes each day to do this clairvoyance meditation, and it’s very helpful in opening the third eye.
One Step Further
Try this same technique with your eyes open. Just keep your eyes open, but still focus on seeing a different image in your mind’s eye.
After practicing these steps, you’ll be well on your way to opening your third eye.
