How to Concentrate at the "Point Between the Eyebrows," the Spiritual Eye

Domenico

Question

Hello and thanks for your answers

When I meditate i set my gaze at the point between the eyebrows.

But...

1) Where do I put my attention and concentration? on the skin between the eyebrows or on the part of the brain behind the point between the eyebrows? or do I have to "look" and focus on the background of the dark I see (and that is a point, physically, in front of my forehead)?

2) where is located anja chakra?

Many thanks and sorry for my english

Dear Domenico,

Thank you for your question. I think many people wonder what exactly is meant by the instruction "focus at the point between the eyebrows."

I found your answer, described perfectly in Savitri Simpson's book "Chakras for Starters":

In meditation, concentrate at a point midway between the eyebrows. Close your eyes (or keep them half-open and half-closed) and look upward-not crossing your eyes, but converging them slightly as though you were gazing at your thumbnail outstretched above you. Don't be too exact in this matter, however. The important thing is to bring your attention to that area. Don't try forcibly to bring your eyes to a focus, but gaze mentally towards that point, and let the spiritual eye draw you into itself. At all times keep your eyes relaxed and your brow smooth.

The ajna chakra is in the center of the spine with its negative pole being the medulla oblongata and its positive pole being the point between the eyebrows.

Love & Blessings,
Dharmadevi
