Thank you for your clarification! I remember when I was meditating more frequently, about three years ago, I was becoming aware of a place about 10
inches above my head. I could feel it almost like feeling a part of my body, but it was also more like feeling a different consciousness. This would
be the Sun, right? Could it be the kundalini rising?
This reminds me of an INTENSE experience I once had..
I was with my brother and some friends, sitting in a chair. I closed my eyes, and was immediately aware of my higher levels of consciousness! It was a
feeling, like layers or levels, kind of like a step ladder. I could feel the higher steps above me - so I "pulled" myself through and reached the
next step (with INTENSE focus and intent), and more light filled my mind.
I could still feel the rest of the "steps", there were 7 in total, I was now at the second. I continued to 'climb' the steps through this
intention and focus, and very much ended at the highest step I could feel. I was no longer aware of the reality that existed with my brother and his
friends - me sitting in a chair in a body - I was in a very high state of consciousness.
At this 7th level, it was gold light, light everywhere! Filled my mind's eye. I seen things, but mainly my partner, she was the center focal within
the mind's eye, with radiant light everywhere. The feeling within this state was GRAND to say the least..
Soon enough I "snapped" out of it and opened my eyes - my brother and friends were still the same, and by observing their body languages and eyes,
they did not change before I "left".. But, what a feeling. .. Thank you for recalling that memory
To answer your question from earlier, the jesus-lotus avatar guy might have a different perspective, but to me the minds eye and the third eye are
different. The third eye is not to just see other beings.. Its to percieve within your central vision (Ajna) the realities of higher frequencies,
which cant be seen in the atomic reality we call "3D".
The minds eye is your bridge from body > soul. Its you, the conscious awareness, your vehicle. There is also an internal 'ear', that can hear thigns
that are not within the same wavelength, but of higher. I have tapped into this on several occasions, but its rare and was not intented.
The minds eye is the navigator through the mind, the Ajna/third eye is the eye of your energy body or chakra fields. As I said, allows you to perceive
in the higher states of frequency. Whereas your mind-vision can see wherever you are, its the total awareness. Its what sees the images within your
"imagination" as you called it, mental images..
Maybe calling it 'eye' is the wrong thing.. Its just awareness, which allows you to take in the signals of the external realities, and internal
realities. Being human is very complex and unique huh?
