Many spiritual practitioners seek to maintain observer consciousness—the perspective beyond the limited view of the ego. However, keeping observer consciousness is difficult when our lives are busy and our heads are full of worries. What we need is a quick way to come back to a clear, focused mind. Of course, any meditation practice will do this, but that’s not always easy to fit into a cramped schedule. I have found that using magnets during a short meditation session can be as effective as longer meditation sessions.
Magnets accentuate typical meditation because they can help clear and open energy centers in the body. In this case, we will use them to help clear the sixth chakra, which is also known as the “third eye.” This is the chakra most closely related to our brain, so opening the third eye helps create peace of mind and allows intuitive ability to flourish.
To follow the meditation, you’ll need to have two cylindrical magnets. Sit comfortably in a chair or in the traditional meditation posture. Hold the magnets with the fingers of each hand, so that the magnets extend beyond your finger a little bit. Now, bring your hands up to your third eye, which is located in between and slightly above your eyebrows. At this point, the magnets should be overlapping, but not touching.
Close your eyes and relax completely; try to sense energy as it’s effected by the magnets. Now, slowly move the magnets in circles, each tip moving around the other. You may feel tingling, a crawling sensation, or a pushing and pulling from the magnets. As you move the magnets one over the other, breathe in deeply through the nose and exhale slowly through the mouth. As you continue, you will feel your head becoming cooler and lighter; you may even feel a lot of heat leaving your head. After five minutes or so, slowly open your eyes and notice how different the world looks to you.
Most of us need simple practices like this to keep in touch with our best selves. Really, observer consciousness is a habit that takes time to cultivate. Use this as a way to quickly come back to who you really are.
