Forgive me if I'm brief; I just wrote all of this and my internet decided to disconnect in mid-send.
To answer your second post first, I seriously doubt you did anything like I was speaking of in my previous posts; you should certainly expect your
third eye to open unexpectedly while learning how to control it. Its normal; you need to learn how to turn it on and off consciously, though.
A brief runthrough of the forementioned mistakes I made is a little difficult. Basically, have you ever had that feeling like you shouldn't turn
around, like your life would change if you did? It happened when I was twelve; I had the feeling, turned, and saw some sort of entity in the shadows
which rushed at me when I shone a light at it. My first mistake was not saying anything then; I waited five more years to speak to anybody, during
which more things than I can list occurred within my home. At seventeen I began finding and meeting with other sensitives, two of which came to my
home; I had labored under the belief that I was insane until that point when they both perceived the presences within the house. After that we
learned from each other, practiced our skills; we wanted to know exactly what we were capable of doing. In that time I allowed myself to be swayed to
participate in experiments which undoubtedly are wrong; we more or less lured spirits to attempt target practice. We thought there was a danger to be
fought, and as more dangers emerged, we were unaware that we were causing every bit of the trouble.
When any one person uses their third eye a specific energy is used by the body, and a specific energy signature can be perceived by others. This
signature gets stronger when more sensitives group together, especially in group activities of a metaphysical nature. In other words, grouping nearly
twenty clairvoyants into one small building five times a week is a good way to attract unwanted attention from the other side. The result of the
constant onset of events was that no two people could agree on which action to take; some wanted to fight, and learn new ways to fight, others wanted
to attempt communication (a universally risky idea), and others still wanted to ignore what was happening, thinking that our focusing on spirits was
giving them license to appear. At the end of it I broke contact with them all, and since have pretty much been trying to ignore that aspect of my
Returning to something I had previously said about energy signatures; there is one constant to remember when attempting anything, including the act of
opening your third eye. All of these things require energy which must be repaid in time. I suppose its just another force of balance in the
universe, but it can get tricky to predict and may require action of its own. For example, the amount of energy required to see an aura is roughly
equal to the amount of energy required to remotely alter another human's emotional state. Seeing another's aura may cause your mood to alter
suddenly; while some think this is because of empathy, it is more directly from the energy exchange which just took place. On the larger scale, if
one were somehow able to alter the weather, as in make it rain, it would result in a corresponding drought in another area. One must have an acute
knowledge of one's self and surroundings, and the relationships between these things, before attempting any sort of non-observational techniques.
On that note, finally, I have an exercise to suggest. You see, most people are more familiar with their bedrooms than anywhere else; it is where we
recharge, dream, and must feel our safest. Based upon that, most people probably know where everything in their bedroom is located. If you want to
try my technique out, you need only to light-proof your bedroom. If you happen to have a street lamp outside, a piece of poster-board usually does
the trick. Once this is done, go to the light-switch and take a quick look around at your room. Turn off the lights and take a moment to adjust;
relax, and envision your room as it was when the lights were still on. Now, at a comfortable rate, move around the room; don't just wander, have
your goal and intention in mind. Listen to every sound, feel everything with your feet, and make certain you keep your eyes relaxed but open. If
this works for you as it has for me, you should begin to perceive a sort of energy-shadow over every object in the room with which you can accurately
see; focus on your hands for a second, keep your breathing steady, and basically explore. Its not like you'll have perfect nightvision or anything,
but ever since I learned this I haven't stubbed a toe in the dark. The point of the exercise is to learn vision independent of eyesight; any
physicist could tell you that our sight is composed of reflected light particles. Beyond that, its good for building confidence (being sure of your
footing in pitch darkness is not to be sneezed at), and its good for beating fear. Trust me, the ability to perceive a spirit in pitch darkness and
not fear is more useful than most will admit.
I suppose I'll part with a word of advice, being poor at ending these things. The world of the metaphysical is best treated like a well-guarded
museum; you can look, learn, and come and go as you please, but you can't touch, and only the fools steal.
