I’m back. For the last two months I haven’t blogged much since I had a lot of university work but I do hope that I will catch up now and will bring you some interesting posts about the third eye.
I’m excited to tell you that I will be starting a series of articles about third eye experiences. And what’s even better, this will be the first one. Last week I managed to get an interview with Jason Stephenson about his own third eye story.
I first met Jason two months ago when I stumbled upon his YouTube channel and since then he has been a personal inspiration for me. Jason practices meditation daily, does guided meditation and holds inspiring talks that resonate deeply with everyone who seek inner harmony.
Enjoy the recording I made. For your convenience I’ve put a written version too.
Third Eye Experiences – Jason Stephenson
Q1: Lately, there is a growing interest and search for advice on awakening the third eye or also known as the pineal gland. From your perspective, what advice can you give to those who are just starting out?
The first I can say is meditation. Meditation beyond all else, beyond everything else is paramount. And the reason I say that is because when you do meditation, just drop the whole idea of opening the third eye, let all of that go because when we are trying to achieve something such as that we will basically never achieve it. It’s about letting go, about being in the now as much as we possibly can – this is the best way.
Meditation to bring peace into your life, to help bring you into the present moment. Of course, along with meditation also comes to live a relatively healthy lifestyle.
People say there is too much fluoride in the water and that will dampen out the pineal gland. I’m in two minds about the whole thing, I cannot really speak for other people but I can speak for myself and I really don’t think that has too much importance. It’s more the fact of meditation, letting go, and finding peace in our lives and then we can move on from there and don’t let the focus be all about awakening the third eye.
The best we can do in this world is to be at peace with who we are, with ourselves, with our family, with our friends. When we live a peaceful life and we have a peaceful being, a peaceful soul, we are in a much better state to naturally awaken the third eye.
Q2: How did the whole experience occur to you?
In all honesty, purely by accident, not by intentionally setting out to awaken the third eye. In fact, I believe what happened for me and some say it was some sort of the kundalini awakening, but what did happen for me was not planned. I knew nothing of the third eye, I had started meditation in my life but this was in my early twenties.
I will tell you the whole story about this because it’s very interesting. I was on my way to work in Sidney by train and I knew that I got to a certain point just before Sidney, where there is the Royal National Park, and something propelled me to get off the train, to leave my friends, to not go to work that day and climb up and sit on the edge of the mountain.
I have no idea the reasons why that happened that day. Something just pushed me to do it. So, I got off the train, I went to the edge of the mountain and I remember just sitting there, reflecting on so many things and then this peace just overcame me. And it was almost like that peace turned into, wow, I always find it hard to even put it into words but I’ve never experienced in my life anything as powerful as that moment way back then which is 25-30 years ago.
It started off with just feeling peaceful, I was in a peaceful frame of mind, sitting there, overlooking the mountain and the trees underneath me and hearing the birds. I was in a beautiful place. And then the peace started to wash trough my entire body and it kept going and going, it got stronger and stronger until all sounds, and this is nature sounds, sounds of birds, sounds of the ocean not too far away because this is on the edge of the mountain overlooking on the ocean and the forest. All sounds started to amplify, magnify, I had this intense peace and this intense sound of beauty. All the people that I had ever met in my life, all the met people I was going to meet, all the love washed through me in this one instant.
Everything just washed through me at one point in time and I will never know how long this lasted for. I think it lasted for quite some time, I was not aware of time, no inclination of time but it was pulsing through me, this intense, magnificent feeling of peace, joy, love, sounds of bliss and it was magnificent.
I guess that was the reason why I was called to go to the mountains that day, it was an amazing experience.
Q3: Sometimes we feel an itch, a gut feeling before something happens. Do you think there was something that propelled you for such an experience?
For me that was it and I followed my gut instinct on that day and I usually go through life following my gut instinct actually, quite a lot of times. Sometimes it lets me down, parts that I don’t think I’ve been the best but ultimately I follow my gut instinct and that’s just the way I’ve chosen to live my life.
Q4: In what way/ways your life got impacted and reshaped you as an individual afterwards?
I remember after that event I was walking back and feelings of wanting to tell the world but not knowing how to tell the word. And I did, I went back and first person I told was my mom who is pretty spiritual, was into meditation.
I could not ever express my true feeling of what I felt and many people probably thought I was just mad. But that moment changed my life. That moment awakened me to something so much more powerful to know that there is so much more to life beyond the physical, well, well beyond the physical.
I have had moment like that in my meditation practice and again not through intention, not through wanting those but just occurring but never as intense as that one.
The interesting thing is, it leaves me with a little bit of a problem and the issue with this feeling is that no matter how much I try and chase that feeling, it may never come again. And that’s a hard part because I’ve seen something so intense and felt something so beyond beautiful that the rest of life is not dull by any means, life is beautiful, but there’s been a longing to sometimes even want that experience back almost like a drug.
That day reshaped things for me. That day I realized for the first time that everything we touch, see, hear and smell is only from our limited bodies and there is much more beyond that. I carry that with me and I know that it’s not no longer something I try and guess, I know now deep within my heart that there is an enormous connection with everything that exists and that we are 200% all of us connected. We know that through science that everything is energy, everything is vibration and that is what I experienced. I felt in those moments when that happened there was a total connection with everyone, every living thing on the planet, every bird, and every tree became washed through me.
It was a beautiful thing that I carry with me in my heart all the time.
Q5: Last words of advice and where can people find you?
If anyone would like to follow me at www.relaxmeonline.com or you can just search my name out Jason Stephenson meditations on YouTube and you will find me there and you will see the many meditations that I’ve been working over the last few years.
Meditation has become a larger part of my life, probably in the last 5 years of my life, and I realized the power of meditation and I know that when I don’t meditate I can get anxious inside.
So, I can only offer words to say that meditation and being at peace with oneself is the best way to even consider awakening the third eye. You can use binaural beats, you can use meditation music but we must let go of the fact that we are trying to awaken the third eye. I know it almost sounds contradictory because there is a contradiction there because you want to awaken your third eye but you’re not meant to think about awakening the third eye. That’s all I can say because when we are striving to open the third eye it’s not going to happen this way. It’s about releasing and letting go and being present and then allowing it to unfold as it should, when it will. I hope that will help.
This was the personal story of Jason’s third eye experience. I hope that for all of you seeking and wanting to explore more about the pineal gland this will give you the needed answers on what a third eye experience truly is.
Until next time,
