how to meditate? I get the breathing all wrong.My brain screams at me for lack of air while deep breathing.?

and to top it all off, my feet fall asleep and I get sleepy and I cna’t relax enough to allow the deep mental state needed to meditate.
I tried to do so ,and now all I am now is realllly sleepy.
I am trying to open the third eye. I know I need to open the heart chakra, but is is really about the chakras?
I just want the third eye open. Is it necessary to open the heart chakra too?
Does one need to meditate to open the third eye? How do you know you are doing this meditation thing correctly?
And how can I “get comfy” when my back hurts from sitting cross-legged,and my feet fall asleep?

Help!

The reason for the third eye? My reasons.

help!

Too d*mn frustrated to meditate.

Is it normal to get verry sleepy afterwards and to be disoriented and groggy after attempting to meditate?

There are a lot of good sites you can google and go to for help if you find it is reading you need. I use my own body and to get past the hurt in my back, I lay on my back, with my knees bent and feet flat on the floor. I cross my arms over my chest, and then relax as I rub my chest and slip my hands back to each side and then up to my temples. I have found that I’m all most asleep, but fully relax when rubbing my temples with my thumbs. This… Read more »

Buddhist Meditation think the empty place the right hand on the left and turn the fingers thumbs. Meditation Hindu believe in God and their Divinities focus on a mantra of your choice. Meditation practice imagine a light in his forehead third eye and that light can move to balance the other chakras in your body … Axé, much peace and bright.

Okay, it seems you are assuming that there is only one way to meditate here, and it seems you’re not comfortable with it. There are tons of ways you can meditate which help to focus your mind, and in that, you can work on your chakras. Yes, if you are going to work on opening one chakra, you should work on all of them, so that there is no blocked/unwanted energy in any area of your body – this will help you better to achieve your goal of opening the third eye. Meditation helps a lot with this. But you… Read more »

You need to find somewhere you are not going to be disturbed for at least an hour. If you plan to meditate then it works much better. First of all breath normally and don’t think at all. Not thinking is a tall order and hard to achieve, give yourself a chance. 🙂 After about 10 mins when you are completely relaxed. Breath deeper to a count of 3 or 4, hold it in to a count of 3 or 4, and then release it to a count of 3 or 4. If you cant manage 3, start on a 2… Read more »

In terms of breathing you can try something called the “full yogic breath”. I’m not sure if you’ll find info on the web as I had a personal one on one with a yogi who showed me the technique. Always start with breathing into the lower abdomen (the Chinese “Dan Tien”), slowly and easily without forcing, just relaxed. Then start counting slowly on in and out breaths and try to get them to be equal length. The next stage is to breath into the lower abdomen and then fill the lungs slowly upwards from there into the chest and then… Read more »

You need to go into a trance before you can open any chakras, and it’s not a good idea to open one and leave the others blocked. You want them all open so you can have an even balance of energy through your body. Get some good incense or essential oil that you like to put you in a relaxed state. Don’t get super cheap incense, you’ll just feel like you’re suffocating and you won’t accomplish anything. I’m not tired after doing meditations, I’m actually really energized, but I do what’s referred to as power meditations. They are much more… Read more »

I use the Violet Flame, which is a living magnetic Fire brought to us by the angels… Forget about Chakras

Simply Visualize yourself inside a purple egg set on Fire… Make sure you are celebate. Eat Light and Healty, go on a fast if you have to. But it is complete EMPTY-ness and SILENCE within that will channel this energy to you. You will definetely feel it within a week.

This energy helped me see auras and open my third-eye.
