I know the particulars Alpha, but I still think he is cool with me saying hello.
I have an open eye meditation I do,,,,I always thought it was the best for stilling the mind and turning off the internal chatter,,,but,,,after years of use, I think it really contributes to opening the third eye as well.
The first and easiest method, is to take a small pebble, or rock, put it in the sunlight and stare at the shadow of the rock. For some reason, the shadow is really easy to focus on to the exclusian of all else,,,have patience,,,,it doesn't take long,,,,and the shadow is all you can see,,,,,,,,,the shadow seems more substantive and real than anything else and the world for the most part stops being the word.
The second, is to take a small pebble and stare at it to the exclusian of all other things, when the mind is stilled and for the most part doesn't exist anymore,,,,the world has a pulsating field on it, the field is constantly moving and breathing,,,,like a thin layer of glass was covering everything and had oil and vinegar constantly moving underneath it.
I will say this now,,,,,,,,,,,after years of these two simple but effective meditations,,,,,,I began to see ghosts. And when I spend enough energy and put my self into the frame,,,,,I see the whole outline of the body and head of the ghost.
This is pertinant to this thread only in so much as to how I see the ghost.
I never really can see a face,,,I see the head,,,,but I always see a red dot in the middle of the head of the ghost,,,and not the forehead,,,,,the middle of the head,,,where the pineal gland would be.
So,,,,there is that.
