The Troat Chakra Meditation
taken from this website: http://www.anmolmehta.com/blog/2008/08/20/charka-meditation-open-third-eye/
~ As per the illustration above, sit up on your heels in rock pose, raise your arms straight out to the sides at a sixty degree angle and have your hands bent at the wrist pointing outwards as shown. If rock pose is difficult for you, you may also sit in sukh asana (simple cross legged) or even on a chair for this meditation if you like.
~ Gather all your attention and focus on the center of your forehead, right between the eyebrows. You may feel a slight pressure, or other such sensation building there as you practice this meditation.
~ Now comes the hard part :-D. Start to inhale in sixteen parts and exhale in sixteen parts. This means that sixteen tiny sniffs will be used to make one inhalation and sixteen tiny sniffs will be used to make the following exhalation. Continue this breathing pattern for the duration of the meditation. If sixteen sniffs is too many, start with eight and build up from there.
~ With every sniff visualize a tiny silver hammer tapping the center of the forehead. So 16 taps during the inhalation and 16 taps during the exhalation.
~ Start with 1 minute, build up to 3 and then onto 11 mins. From there you may push further if you like, building up to 31 minutes.
Advanced Third Eye Chakra Meditation Technique
~If you are comfortable with the above technique, and are ready for a greater challenge then apply Shambhavi Mudra throughout the practice to enhance the affect on the Ajna Chakra. Shambhavi Mudra is applied by keeping the head straight, eyes closed, but turning the eyeballs upwards such that you are trying to look through the center of the forehead. If you do apply Shambhavi Mudra, please do not strain the eyes and release it if the eyes tire, while continuing with the rest of the meditation.
