Tony Perez, noted playwright and my Drama teacher is a psychic guru!
Perez assents, "Everybody is gifted with a third eye because everybody has psychic abilities, albeit in different in different degrees of development. If that were not true, we would be incapable of recollection, of remembrance, of memory, of foresight, and of imagination."
Perez says the third eye is a popular term that refers to one's psychic vision or spiritual insight. It is typically depicted in visual art as being located in the middle of one's forehead. "While this is graphically useful, it is also misleading because true inner vision is always from within - whether in one's mind or in one's heart," he says.
It is all a matter of switching on the power to see. Turning on the third eye helps us see spirits and read people. With it we can go back into the past and see things in the future. We may also interpret dreams, visions and understand a message from a friend, a close relative or even from a person we do not know.
The third eye is activated when scanning a person, an entity, a place an object, an artwork, a piece of writing, a memory, a dream, or a feeling in order to gain additional information or understanding. The information gained is usually visual in nature.
There are many easy-to-do exercises to open the third eye. In Latin America, for instance, it is said that St. Martin de Porres is the patron saint of psychic vision, and that lighting 10 black candles in his honor will open one's third eye.
Every Tarot deck has at least one card which, when contemplated, can encourage the activation of psychic vision. All we have to do it sift through the deck and intuitively identify which card it is. It will not be the same for all decks and for all persons.
Sleeping with an amethyst tumblestone on one's person or under one's pillow is also believed to effect the opening of the third eye, not to mention promote prolific dreaming. Also, associating with or being in the company of people with strong psychic vision can usually amplify one's own.
Finally, it has often happened that sheer desire to open one's third eye is sufficient to actually open it.
"I use exercises that help people recognize and identify the life-giving and death-dealing patterns in their lives, and help them realize that they have the freedom to proactively maintain, destroy, or revise these patterns. Only after then can they be truly capable of helping others," Tony Perez concludes.
