Posted by on 30 March, 2014

From the popular and exciting author of Spirit Junkie and Add More ~Ing to Your Life comes this practical and fun 40-day program for living a life of unlimited happiness.



One of the key components to my glass-half-full lifestyle is my dedication to A Course in Miracles, which teaches, “An untrained mind can accomplish nothing.”… In my experience studying the Course resulted in a full-blown mind cleanse, not to mention a superrockin’ life.
Are you ready to work miracles? Gabrielle Bernstein believes that simple, consistent shifts in our thinking and actions can lead to the miraculous in all aspects of our daily lives, including our relationships, finances, bodies, and self-image. In this inspiring guide, Gabrielle offers an exciting plan for releasing fear and allowing gratitude, forgiveness, and love to flow through us without fail. All of which, ultimately, will lead to breathtaking lives of abundance, acceptance, appreciation, and happiness. With May Cause Miracles, readers can expect incredible transformation in 40 powerful days: simply by adding up subtle shifts to create miraculous change.
If you follow the simple daily steps, you’ll be hooked up with all
you need. Try your best not to skip ahead or practice more than one exercise a day. Each lesson is artfully placed right where it needs to be… Each exercise will create subtle shifts. These shifts are miracles. And the more miracles you add up, the more miraculous your life will be. Before you start exercising your love muscles, it’s important that you prep for your journey…

Awakening the Third Eye Medtiation
Posted by on 16 February, 2006

The Third Eye - an everyday organ of perception



Most books and articles I’ve read about the third eye and nonphysical vision are inevitably couched in very “ooh-ahh” language, with magical, otherworldly descriptions and vague insinuations that some people have it... and some people don’t.

People have trouble really nailing the true profundity of the third eye, at least partly because it is so intrinsically human. The very humanness of this structure makes it somehow invisible to most people. Those who have experimented with the third eye have often experienced exalted states in the process of awakening spiritual vision, which they very enthusiastically try to convey. Unfortunately, the effect of this has tended to make it almost impossible for your average, more grounded person to imagine what it must be like to even _have_ a third eye, much less learn how to use one.

Ironically, the third eye is magical precisely because _everyone_ has one. Like an atrophied muscle, it just needs a little patience and practical...although a good personal trainer can make things go considerably quicker.


Where is the third eye, exactly?

According to Samuel Sagan, M.D., author of _Awakening the Third Eye_, the third eye is a tunnel that starts at the space between the eyebrows and ends at the occipital bone at the back of the head. In his experience, in nearly all people, awareness of the third eye starts at the front, in the space between the eyebrows. The third eye is not a physical structure, but an interface exists between the third eye and the body of life force, or qi of the Chinese tradition. Although not physical itself, the third eye has a relationship to physical structures such as the pituitary and pineal glands. Articles have been written that confuse the third eye with these physical structures, but the third eye as understood by Indian and Buddhist masters is not to be equated with anything that exists in the physical body.

One of the easiest ways to start feeling the third eye is to feel this interface between the structure and the body of life force, which surfaces in the form of vibration, pressure or tingling sensations. This can occur when one is very still and simply being aware of the area between their eyebrows. Other qualities that might surface include nonphysical lights, or finding oneself immersed in a purple space or expanse. There are a number of different meditation techniques designed to assist in the process of experiencing these qualities, many of which generally work better than simply sitting alone, where your mind can often get in the way. Still, for many people, just this basic perception comes fairly easily.


Why is the third eye important?

Mainly, it is important because it’s a first step into nonphysical perception – a gateway to inner worlds and states of consciousness. Once your nonphysical vision begins to open, quite simply, your world changes. You cannot operate on the same set of assumptions once you’ve begun to experience a layer of reality previously denied you. Because the third eye interfaces with the layer of life force, it is relatively close to the physical and can be felt fairly easily by a majority of people, with practice.

The third eye is also important due to its relationship to the qi, or body of life force. Due to its nature as an interface, the third eye, once awakened, acts as a “switch” for the body of energy, awakening a number of circulations and flows. This can bring improvements in health, as well as in general state of mind or well-being, simply due to the creation of a more fluid, less “stuck” state in which your body and mind can rest. As stated by Dr. Sagan, "From a therapeutic point of view, it has been my experienc over the years that many clients get better when they connect with their third eye, whatever the nature of their problem."


In the section above, a number of qualities were mentioned that can be experienced in the first stages of a third eye space. However, this is only the very beginning of where third eye spaces can take you. With practice, you can begin to see things like spinning vortices through which you may find yourself traveling to a number of different spaces with different feelings and qualities. Often these spaces carry a sense of profound stillness or presence that can leave one in a totally different state of mind afterwards, or with very powerful realizations about their essential nature. Many of these spaces are very beautiful. As your vision progresses and you attain greater states of stillness, you can go deeper and deeper into these states.


So what? Why do this?

There are numerous ways to answer this. One might question that if you have to ask, you may not be the right kind of person. I know for me, a lot of it stemmed from a simple wanting of truth, to see things exactly as they are, with no filters or distortions or gaps. Being able to see the world through your third eye makes a number of experiences, even relatively mundane, worldly things, immeasurably more interesting. Going to the supermarket, playing with babies, spending time in nature or with pets, talking to people at work – all of these things change when you are operating through an awakened third eye awareness. Using third eye vision on flowers can be absolutely captivating, for example. I spent hours in a rose garden once, with a childlike joy as I felt the subtlety of colors and lights around each breed – something that would have bored me to death previously.

Put it this way, if you saw the point of trying drugs, but easily got bored of the fake aspect of the realities they created, then third eye work may be for you.

I’m at a point in my life now where I can’t imagine _not_ being able to perceive things this way. If I were to suddenly lose the ability to sense things with my third eye, I would feel blind, like I had lost a limb. I rely on my third eye to pick out fruit at the supermarket, to warn me when unhealthy people or energies are around, to play with my niece and nephew, to get people’s attention, to get a sense of my boyfriend’s mood before I sneak up on him, to re-center if something knocks me off balance, to determine the source of my own feelings or mood. I use it so much that I don’t always realize I’m using it...it’s become a habit.

To me, it feels like an essential part of being human. Part of living in the world is to see all aspects of it. From my experience, and the experiences of many other people, not all of those aspects happen to occur in the physical.

After a certain point, talking about third eye work is a complete waste of time, though. You need to try it for yourself.
