Forgive me but I think you are overcomplicating things. All you need to do is to know the basics and the rest will follow.
You wish to blaze your Ajna chakra right so here is how to do it. Find a dark space; make yourself as comfortable as possible so that you will not
need to move to adjust circulation later on. Concentrate only on your breathing, with each exhale expel spiritual toxins as a black gas and with every
inhalation imagine a web of wispy light entering your body and reinforcing your energy until you glow from foot to head.
Put no time limit on this, there is no hurry.
As you concentrate you will become much more relaxed and the song, a high pitched keening between your ears will be very loud but not unpleasantly so.
This sound is a great indicator of things to come but it can all be undone with a distracting thought should an undisciplined mind let it.
It is a tightrope you walk within your mind at the beginning but this is what you strive for because the silent struggle is there to force you to
become better and more accomplished in this meditation over time and practice and it is there to separate the chaff from the wheat. Not all who strive
will realise their waiting potential because in my opinion it is not because they are lacking it is because at this time in their life they are not
ready. It is rare to have all you wish happen straight away but if you are serious then you must persevere.
When you are fully relaxed and sheathed in light simply imagine a small white light slightly above and between your eyes. Take your time and do not
hurry and these manifestations of the spiral are normal and yet they can easily distract you from what it is you are trying to achieve.
Let go, let all the thoughts just go and imagine this light at your forehead start to pulse in time to your breathing and if it chooses to twist then
let it do what it will, allow it free will because it is not fighting you it is trying to free you. This of course is my own way of doing things but
they work very well for me over many years so I pass them onto you so that you may have more options should you wish to use them and add them to the
way you do things.
The vibration will manifest at first as a fluttering or as feathers gently touching your skin, sounds flitting from one side to another sometimes,
fingers gently brushing your cheek or lips. Let them and be one with them and do not let your mind think on them but I must tell you that the first
time you experience this you will probably come tumbling back down to earth because the distraction of such a thing is powerful - disconcerting.
Even music and voices but if you start to hear the latter then my friend you are really close to experiencing something amazing - I will not tell you
details but it is an eye watering surprise I call the 'data stream' and I leave it at that.
Keep practicing and do not give up but at the same time do not become so wrapped up in reaching this space because to try too hard is paradoxically to
push you further away from the destination as it were.
The process is so simple but trying to get the mind to know that is the trick here.
1) Relax the body and mind.
2) Breathing, slow it and focus only on the actions of in and out.
3) Imagine a small light at your forehead and linked to your breathing
4) Pulse the light in tune to your breathing and if you need to then imagine a Tibetan bell being struck gently by a log in time to your breathing –
inhale the log strikes the bell – exhale the log drifts back ready to strike again at the next inhalation.
This is my own technique I evolved over years and it works very well if you find it difficult to maintain your meditational equilibrium as I did due
to post traumatic stress.
Another thing is that from my own personal point of view is that I would advise that you abstain from sexual activities for a few days because the
energy you gain from this will be very noticeable and be a very powerful ally to you. It will help you to break through and the full body vibration
you seek will be powered by this sexual energy as it has been my experience that abstinence and mediation go perfectly together and the most
insightful periods of mediation were aided from periods of sexual abstinence!
Anyway good luck and if you do not give up then it will work one day, you just need to learn to still the mind and let go of your life for the time
you strive to soar (sorry for the cliché).
