The Third Eye…to me it is the gateway to our intuition. It’s the eye that is “all seeing”. That part of us that “just knows” something. However, just like the Throat chakra, it is also about knowing the truth. Our truths and how much we allow ourselves to see it, to serve our highest good.
Some say that the Third Eye shows you things when you imagine. That’s how I “see” things, well one of the ways. The other is this sense of knowing, or feeling in my chest area. I love meditating and letting my third eye open because I see such beautiful lands and lights, and sometimes even hear the laughter of delight when it takes me home……
I’m not really sure how to develop the Third Eye chakra, but there are meditation CDs that help you do that. I have one which uses “singing bowls” and it’s amazing when you feel the vibrations of these bowls going straight to the chakra points!! Maybe like this blog post by Karen Kubicko suggests, it is trusting what we are given?
