Reaching Self-Realization Through a Third Eye Chakra Meditation

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Seeking Truth, who says during meditation they see their Third Eye opening and the colors Blue, Indigo, and sometimes Yellow. A meditation center that Seeking Truth visits told them it looks like they’re trying to connect with the divine through their Third Eye rather than through the Crown (7th Chakra) and it will be difficult for them to reach self-realization.

The Council says it doesn’t matter which chakra you use during meditation in order to connect with the divine. Many people connect with their higher self, God, or powerful force through the Heart Chakra. The Council feels that as Seeking Truth continues to meditate they will connect with the divine and it becomes more difficult when you place limits on yourself that you have to connect through a specific chakra. You are always connected to the divine. And it’s not commonly known that inside each chakra you can find an additional 7 chakras (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Purple).

You can connect to the divine through prayer, you can connect in your dreams, you can connect by staring at trees and appreciating their beauty, you can connect by staring at the sky or the stars, you can connect by watching animals, or appreciating babies. When you see these and other things and realize that you and it is part of the divine, you are connected to that divinity no matter what way you use to get there.

In addition to the ways The Council already mentioned to connect with the divine they also recommend prayer, and the meditations we’ve posted here for balancing and aligning your chakras. A good way to work on your Crown chakra is to close your eyes, look up to the top of your head, begin to pray for a divine connection, and imagine a beautiful White or Gold light coming into your head from above.

Seeking Truth finishes with a question about better paying job offers they’ve been receiving, but they’re reluctant to accept them because they have a young child and their current job offers them a lot of freedom to be with the child. The Council advises Seeking Truth to stay with their current job for now because the freedom to be with the child that this job offers is needed right now. The Council adds that Seeking Truth will only be paid less for a limited time and it’s good to spend as much time as possible with their child.

Meditations to Balance and Align Your Chakras

This post is a follow-up to our previous post which answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Jaden. In the session we did with The Council to answer Jaden’s questions, The Council recommended we provide Jaden with some of their techniques for balancing and aligning his Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra, which are traditionally the top three energy centers within our physical body. In this post we provide techniques for the balancing and alignment of each of the seven chakras, or energy centers, which are located in the body between the groin and the top of the head. Following the text below we’ve included an audio recording of these techniques for readers who desire this. Please let us know if you enjoy working with these techniques.

First Chakra

To balance and align your first chakra, which is located at the base of your spine or groin area, imagine a clear box in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear box with the color red. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the red color out of this box and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the box, and then breathe normally. Imagine the red color leaving the box so the box is clear again, and then imagine the clear box disappearing. Your first chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Second Chakra

To balance and align your second chakra, which is located two inches below your navel along your spine, imagine a clear pyramid, but without its top or cap stone. Now imagine filling this clear pyramid with the color orange. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the orange color out of this pyramid and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the pyramid, and then breathe normally. Imagine the orange color leaving the pyramid so the pyramid is clear again, and then watch the clear pyramid disappear. Your second chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Third Chakra

To balance and align your third chakra, which is located just beneath your breast bone along your spine, imagine a 3D image of a clear plus sign in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear plus sign with the color yellow. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the yellow color out of this plus sign and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the plus sign, and then breathe normally. Imagine the yellow color leaving the plus sign so the plus sign is clear again, and then imagine the clear plus sign disappearing. Your third chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Fourth Chakra

To balance and align your fourth chakra, which is located at the level of your heart along your spine, imagine a clear circle in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear circle with the color green. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the green color out of this circle and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the circle, and then breathe normally. Imagine the green color leaving the circle so that the circle is clear again, and then imagine the clear circle disappearing. Your fourth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Fifth Chakra

To balance and align your fifth chakra, which is located in the middle of the throat, imagine in front of you a clear chalice or wine glass with a long stem and a cross located in the stem. Now imagine filling this clear chalice with the color sky blue. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the sky blue color out of this chalice and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the chalice, and then breathe normally. Imagine the sky blue color leaving the chalice so the chalice is clear again, and then imagine the clear chalice disappearing. Your fifth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Sixth Chakra

To balance and align your sixth chakra, which is located between your eyes and slightly above your eyebrows, imagine a clear Star of David in front of you. Now imagine filling this Star of David with the color Indigo or dark blue. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the indigo color out of this Star and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the Star, and then breathe normally. Imagine the indigo color leaving the Star of David so that the Star is clear again, and then imagine the clear Star of David disappearing. Your sixth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Seventh Chakra

To balance and align your seventh chakra, which is located at the top of the head, imagine a clear lotus flower in front of you. Now imagine filling this lotus flower with the color purple. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the purple color out of this lotus flower and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the lotus flower, and then breathe normally. Imagine the purple color leaving the lotus flower so that it’s clear again, and then imagine the clear lotus flower disappearing. Your seventh chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Closing

Use these techniques whenever you feel sick, tired, drained, or your energy doesn’t feel right. You should not use these techniques daily. As you learn more about each chakra and you feel that one or more of them isn’t properly aligned, you can use the techniques just for the chakra that needs realignment.

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, we’ve included an 8-minute audio recording of these chakra balancing and aligning techniques in the following section.

Opening to the Love All Around

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks The Council how they can give and receive love. PE says they are very closed and there’s a lot of grief in their heart.

The Council says they see the grief in PE’s heart and they recommend working on the heart chakra by sitting a few moments twice each day and picturing a little flame in the heart area. Picture this flame getting bigger and bigger and eventually tuning in to what this increasingly larger flame feels like. This will begin to open your heart.

PE says they struggle with being warm and open with people and this makes them feel lonely and friendless. The Council says PE has abandonment and trust issues and there was a lot of hurt, grief, and sadness from past experiences and past lives. In this lifetime they made a decision to turn these emotions around and feel love and trust again, but it is difficult to do this quickly when you have gone through as much as PE has.

The Council says if PE is uncomfortable giving and receiving love and trusting people, then buy a beautiful plant to take care of. Play music for this plant, water it, sing to it. Show kindness and love to this plant. After you’ve done this for a while perhaps you can have a favorite tree that you can visit every day. Sit with this tree, talk to it, feel the energy the tree gives back to you. Then you can get an animal to express love to. Slowly you’ll begin to trust and let the energy of love in.

PE has heard there are guides and angels around us, but she doesn’t feel their presence and says they don’t know how to connect to it. The Council says PE would connect by doing the exercise with the light in the heart. As you show love to anything – the plant, the tree, the animal – you open your heart and you will begin to feel this connection.

PE says there’s a deep and painful emptiness in their heart, but they really want some kind of connection with other people. PE adds that sometimes they cry for no apparent reason because of so much sadness in their heart that they are unable to explain.

The Council says just by asking this question, PE is in the part of their path where they’ve discovered what they want – the connection with other people and the healing of their heart – so they are exactly where they need to be. And if they follow the steps The Council has suggested, their life will begin to change.

The Council says the vibration you carry attracts people that are a match to that vibration. With a heavy heart, and grief, and sadness, and not trusting, it’s more difficult to bring in the more trusting and gentle souls. As PE does this daily meditation on the heart, they will begin to accept love from the people that want to show it to them, and they will attract more of the kind, loving people they need to help them along their path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know your feelings.

Getting Rid of the Guilt and Sadness After an Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Liz in response to a post we wrote titled, Getting Rid of Depression After an Abortion. Liz says she’s struggled with this as well from an abortion she had 11 years ago. She was unable to have intimate relations after the abortion and mysteriously started loosing her hair. Recently she’s started to feel emotions about this abortion that she’s suppressed: deep sadness, anger, resentment, guilt, and shame.

Liz says she doesn’t know how to tell the spirit of the aborted child she’s sorry for terminating the pregnancy, she’s sorry she was careless about getting pregnant, and she’s sorry for feeling resentment about the abortion. She doesn’t know how to forgive herself and let go of this toxic mix of emotions. She’s writing to ask The Council for guidance.

The Council says there is nothing to feel sad, guilty, or depressed about. Every single abortion, including Liz’s, is pre-planned either in spirit before hand, or it’s agreed upon in spirit that when the time comes the souls of the parents and the child will make the decision to abort or move forward.

The Council says perhaps the child didn’t want to live a whole life. Perhaps it only wanted a short visit in Liz’s womb just to experience that. The Council says from our human viewpoint we don’t understand what the soul of this child desires, but in spirit the entire matter was discussed and agreed upon. They repeat there is no purpose for guilt and sadness. Liz should focus on the thought that she completed what was agreed upon by each party and now everyone is free to go on the next part of their journey.

The Council advises Liz to work on her heart and throat centers. Send the energy of love to her throat and talk about what she desires without holding back. Speak with kindness. And the color blue will activate her throat center.

The Council says the color green can activate her heart. Picture love filling her chest cavity and going down her shoulders and arms into her fingers. They advise Liz to allow herself to heal and feel again. As she speaks freely and can feel emotions, even if they are sad at first, her body will begin to work properly.

The Council says as Liz acknowledges her negative, depressive, sad thoughts, she should ask how she can begin to change these thoughts by moving forward into more joyous thoughts. They say everything Liz wants is within her, but she must get to a place of joy so she can create what she desires. There is no reason for continuing to focus on negative thoughts.

The Council asks Liz what she’s learned from this abortion. She went through this abortion so she could begin asking if there’s more to her life. As she asks the questions, she brings in the answers from The Council and others. They say Liz has done exactly what she planned to do and now she needs to move beyond her negative feelings.

Part of what Liz wanted to experience from this abortion was a connection to her spirituality. She wanted to learn there is so much more to who she is than a physical body. By going through this abortion and experiencing sadness and depression and asking for more, she brings help from the spiritual world. She can now connect with the spirit of her aborted child because it’s not dead, it’s just not in her physical life right now, but it’s in her life spiritually and they are still connected. And The Council advises Liz to connect with this love.

The Council says as you and Liz read and listen to this post a healing will take place and you all will grow, and that is part of The Council’s purpose.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear their guidance for Liz and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

March 29, 2011 Daily Thought

When you feel tension
It’s because you’re not feeling
The love you have for yourself.

Concentrate on your Heart Chakra
Until you notice a feeling of warmth.

Focusing on this feeling
Will increase the warmth,
Ease the tension,
And allow the feeling of love.

—The Council

Meditation for Heart Chakra and First Chakra

This post is the second part of a response to a request from Robyn for The Council’s support and guidance to:

  • Get past feeling it’s not safe to be herself
  • Stop believing she will be rejected if she expresses her true feelings
  • Start speaking and living her truth

In our first post on Robyn’s questions, we included a transcript of an 18 minute message of guidance from The Council. Part of this message was a suggestion to meditate 10-20 minutes a day to help Robyn connect with the pure spirit she truly is within her physical body.

Later in this session The Council provided step-by-step instructions for a meditation to energize the heart chakra and the First chakra, which they said would improve Robyn’s ability to use her thoughts to create the change she wants in her life. The Council pointed out this meditation can benefit all, not just Robyn. Here are the steps of the heart chakra – first chakra meditation:

Meditation for Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

This post is inspired by a question for The Council from Gayle. Gayle asks how she can have a deeper understanding and a better sense of the information she often experiences from her ancestors.

Who are Our Ancestors?

When Cynthia and I asked The Council Gayle’s question, they were careful to point out that it’s limiting to think of our ancestors as only people in our family bloodline. From The Council’s point of view, all human beings are eternal ever-lasting soul energies that experience many lifetimes, in many bodies, in many families.

From this reincarnational point of view, The Council encourages us to think of our ancestors as all the souls we’ve come to know and love through experiences we’ve shared in all our lifetimes (as well as between lifetimes). The Council believes this is a less limiting way of thinking about ancestors – a way of thinking that can make it easier to access spiritual and emotional inspiration and guidance.

Meditation to Improve Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

The Council advises that prayer and meditation will help us develop the intuitive abilities Gayle desires. The Council particularly recommends working with the Crown chakra at the top of the head for spiritual intuition and the Heart chakra in the center of the chest for emotional intuition. They emphasize that working with these two energy centers together is a particularly powerful way to improve our perception of the ever-present inspiration and guidance available from spirit.
