Body - Mind - Heart - Spirit


One of the fundamental ideas in Yoga is the ability to focus all of your energy or attention in one place. The place that is recommended to focus on is called the "Christ center" or "The third eye". It is located between the eyebrows, behind the bone. According to yogic writings, the more you can focus all your energy upward to this spot, the closer you will come to enlightenment. Reportedly, many yogis have been known to look up towards the heavens more than most due to this upward pull of energy.

To bring the energy into one place:

Sit with your eyes closed and concentrate your focus on the spot between your eyebrows or third eye. Breathe deeply. Inhale to the bottom of your pelvis and exhale up to your collarbone.

Imagine your fingers as magnets and lightly brush them in a quick, upward movement over an exposed stomach, using a flick of the wrist to direct the energy upward. Imagine the energy being pulled from your lower body and flung up to your brain.

Touch your thumbs to the back of the earlobes and lower part of the ears, cupping your hands around the rest of the head without touching it and with your fingers pointing upward.

With the loose movement of the wrist that was used previously, gently draw the energy with your fingertips from your temples to the point between your eyebrows.

Continue sitting in your meditative pose and breathing deeply with the eyes closed. Imagine the breath is now a magnet that is drawing the energy up from the lower part of the body to the point between the eyebrows. Focus your entire being on that point, the seat of divine awareness within.

Finish the meditation with some light stretching.
