Hi, I have a question concerning the third eye, but it has a bit of a story to it, it might be a bit complicated to read because english is not my native language, so it's sometimes hard for me to explain things...

Not so long ago I got kinda interested in the third eye, so I started searching for information about it (I never really had the intention to actually open it, partually because I'm a bit skeptic)
Well now I found out that my friends girlfriend is also interested in new age stuff and paranormal abilities and such (not sure how to explain this in english), so I asked him if he could ask her about the third eye, this was about one or two weeks ago. So he did and she explained a thing or two about it. My friend also got interested, and we would often say, "hey let's open our third eye!" most of the time we were just joking, but we got interested in actually doing it, only I never really believed that we could actually do this (I have to say I'm a little bit sceptic)
But yesterday my friend told me; "hey I'm going to open my third eye, right,now"...
This really didn't seem like a very good idea, because I've read that it might be dangerous for unexperienced people to open their 3th eye, so i told him to stop and wait untill we had more knowledge on the subject...

Now, can some of you give me some more information, is it really dangerous to do this? And why would it be so dangerous? And so on...

I allready used the search button, but I didn't get any results... So any help would be apreciated...

there are dangers when opening any chakra without the proper meditation and preparation and mind state, but opening the third eye chakra or ajana or brow chakra without being ready or having worked on your other chakras can lead to physcial pain, severe headaches, body aches, etc.

As far as research goes when you dream your third eye is open.

Now allow me to try to remember what I read in either Talmud and/or Kabbalah texts. When three sages went to invoke God's name:
One died
Second went crazy.
The third came in peace and left in peace.

Before you open it you need to ask yourself why do you want to? Understand and appreciate the concept fully before you dive in. Last I would suggest you have some form of religous knowledge or maybe not. Sometimes if you have any religous knowledge it can be a much more scary place but than again it depends on the person's knowledge,fears, and self control. If you fall off someone is there to pick you up, you just need to ask.

Im just going to shoot in here without really reading the replies.In many circles the third eye can be described differenty.Many look at the third eye as being a point of great information exchange.explaining it is mostly dormant in a voluntary state of reciving and transmitting energy and information. It is said that while we look at our senses as being what we use to determine our surroundings some say that our third eye is as I said a transmitter recieving information and energy signatures from all matter and space then transmitting these to our senses producing the world around us.

Now the third eye is sometimes tied to what most simply call imagination.
Where most rely on their basic sense of sight to determine what is real in a physical sense the third eye is what we use to visualize what the not so real world.Aslo many look at it as an internal proccessor which we use to filter thoughts and memories,which is what we see while our main optical sense is dormant or dreaming as some call it.Now they say that what we see while we dream is the when the third eye is internally reviewing information and storing it within the sub concious from the concious,this is why they say if you stay up and study all night without sleep before a test that it will not help you much because the mind has not had time to store any of the information within our memory.

In some circles I have studied it is the perception of the people who would see you that you have to manipulate,somehow making it so they just dont see you.Not that you arnt there but the fact they dont think you are there.

If you are to become invisable and you are like "whoa" what if your next thought is what can't I do. Than you think oh man I could kill myself by thought, you than get scared and you die.

There is a reason paranormal is not to be believed.

Its more interesting to read in theory but practice should not be done. There is good reason why almost every doctrine of religon considers this a sin.

I somewhere heard about Nicola Tesla could not separate fantasy and reality until he was about 12 years old.. and that he could build and modify (visualize) something he wanted to build in his mind.. perhaps build it 100 times in his mind until it worked properly than go to his workbench and build it properly and have it work as intended.

Could it be that somehow he had his third eye fully open.. and the danger here would be once opening it to not separate fantasy from reality.. or as someone would put it go insane ?

I use my third eye when I project. As far as being dangerous, I have never been physically hurt from it. I do agree with the person who talked about proper meditation before opening it and then meditation after your done and renergizing it before you allow it to close. The latter will leave you drained for several hours or days depending on how long your body takes to naturally renergize itself. As far as being wrong to open it, I feel I cannot evolve to a higher level of awareness unless I take a chance. For reading material look under the word Chakra, and you should find other definitions for the third eye. Whatever you do just walk slowly being safe not to trip.

I've heard about this "opening the third eye" thing for quite some time now. It's not exactly what some of you were describing but I think it somewhat relates.

During my college years I saw a post in tone of the bulletins at our campus about a third eye session thing. I didn't really pay atention to it since I don't want to get involved in such things due to fear.

Years before I saw that one of our professors was talking about the third eye and how this professor (one of our Philosophy teacher) had his closed only after a few days. This was because he kept on seeing moving and floating light spheres amongst other stuff all the time and it freaked him out. My thought was that he was seeing some paranormal things because he opened this "third eye".

I don't have any further comments regarding to the professor's experience.

by the "trip" reference do you mean the use of '___'
(N,N-dimethyltryptamine) the "spirit molecule"?

i have this book on order by Dr. Rick Strassman: '___' The Sprit Moloecule.

this guy did psycedelic experiments on a bunch of human subjects under the influence of '___'. he brings up speculation about the soul entering the human through the pineal gland in utero and leaving the penial gland when dying.

www.rickstrassman.com...

i've heard also of other references to the pineal gland being the third eye on a subjective level and/or an actual evolutionary level. (vestigial remnant)

Relevant stuff, but from a different perspective...

In Taoist chi gung, there are few direct analogs to the many chakras of the various Indian streams of thought in this area. There are, instead, three tantiens (pronounced "dandiens") which are located in the centre of the forehead, around the heart area but centrally, and about halfway between the navel and genitalia. Of these, the upper tantien appears to correspond to the third eye.

B K Frantzis recommends a meditation he translates as "outer dissolving" to remove blockages from one's chi body, in which you clear progressively from the top of one's head (the ba hwei) down to one's feet. As one clears blockages, one gets to the upper tantien quite quickly. He also says that when operative it can be used to contact what he terms 'discarnate entities'. I've met him, this is someone (as I've mentioned in earlier posts) who can do a whole array of things we would think of as impossible, so I tend to give his opinions some weight.

Opening the 3rd eye, as most people seem to call it, is just opening one of the 7 major points in the energy system. (there are many more points, but most people have heard of the 7 chakras).

First, I doubt your friend can just decide to "open it NOW!" and like a tv magic show it will happen instantly. On the other hand, it may already be open. The jist of what I want you to understand, is that nothing amazing happens - you won't start seeing things in vissions you never saw before and things like this.

If you are aware of things already, as you work with these things and grow in understanding and knowledge - yes, your awareness and perceptions may increase.

But for the most part, those who know how to, and really work with the brow chakra know that it is not a 'tv like eye in the forhead'. It's not your ticket to fortuntelling. LOL

What you will be able to wrok on from that chakra is the nervous system and pitutitary gland, healing issues and higher ideals and values - how we feel we live up to those ideals, or how we feel others live up to those ideals. (Physicaly it helps with sinuses and such).

Most people like to focus on the fact that we work on our intuition here. True, amongst other things...
