Tuning into the Spiritual Eye


There is a star in golden white light in my meditation. Can you explain to me what is the meaning?

Dear Raja,

This is an experience of the spiritual eye (kutastha). At first you may see just parts of the whole experience, but in time you will be able to merge into the consciousness more deeply. To do this try to tune into entering the light itself. Allow your concentration to be at the center of whatever light you see (usually at the point between the eyebrows).

The spiritual eye consists of a halo of golden light, surrounding a blue field, and having a silvery — white, five-pointed star in the center.

The gold light will expand and form a tunnel – as you pass into this tunnel you consciously are entering the light of the astral world. As you tune into the blue light, it also will form a tunnel and you enter the light of the causal world, also known as the Christ consciousness. When you merge into the star in the center, then you are entering into Cosmic consciousness (the Spirit beyond creation).

Blessings on your spiritual journey.
