Answer

Dear Friend,

Concentrating at the point between the eyebrows takes both practice and increasing relaxation.

Try this: keep your eyes open. Focus calmly and without strain, looking up just slightly, gazing through the point between the eyebrows. When the position feels calm and natural, close your eyes but keep the same calm but upward position. Practice this several times with each sitting until it is no longer needed.

You might also stretch your arm out in front of you at eye level, with your thumb sticking up. Focus on your thumb. If comfortable, close your eyes but keep the position.

This can only be achieved through relaxation!

As to sounds and chanting Aum, these things come and go. Just keep meditating. Remain even minded and still.

Blessings to you,
