I have read books and of other peoples experiences and how they opened there third eye i have done what they did but i dont feel any different they said to meditaite (sorry for poor spelling) but is there a special way to meditaite that is more effective or is there and herb i need?? help please!!!
You do have to meditate in order to connect to your psychic being. You should meditate and have lucid dreams, even astral projection. Try googling/wikihow/yahooanswers for more in depth information. Sit down with your back straight and light some candles/incense. Relax. Let your mind clear and wander. Try guided meditation, too. You CAN try spells, but honestly, I think you need to open your chakra without help from the Divine.
Good luck and Blessed Be.

Before you go about opening your third eye, you must have a strong foundation. People often start from their root chakra and they work all the way up, Muladhara (root chakra), Swadhisthanta( Sacral chakra), Manipura ( Solar plexus chakra), Anahata(heart chakra), Vishuddha(Throat chakra), Ajna( Brow or 3rd eye chakra), and last but not least Sahasrara (Crown chakra). When you want to build a house, you start from the foundation, you can't build something on the sand. And even if you do, it won't last long. You must have a strong foundation first and then work all the way up. You're asking for a special way to meditate. I wouldn't call it special but you could try meditating utilizing mantras and mudras. There are specific mantras and mudras for each and every chakra. Again, it's not necessary but it should definitely help! You can look them up but I'm going to post a link here for any case.
There you go, this is a wonderful site for chakras: "http://www.eclecticenergies.com/chakras/open.php". When you open your third eye, trust me you will know it. There are also herbs which can help you with that. "
The vibrational qualities of plants can assist in balancing, relaxing, and energizing your aura and chakras. Each member of the plant kingdom has a unique gift to offer and can support you on your journey of manifesting your highest path on earth. Allowing herbal energies to assist your personal growth can help you connect to the beauty of nature within and around you. Drinking herbal teas and elixirs, using herbal-based body care products, and acknowledging the plants growing around you as you move through the day are some simple ways of including gifts from the plant kingdom in your life. As you explore your personal connection to all creation, you enhance your ability to live comfortably and safely in a physical body on earth.
Your chakras are like filters that bridge between your physical body and the world around you. They allow energy from the universe in and your energy out through your subtle energy field. Other peoples thoughts, feelings, and projections can get in the way of our own truth shining through. The information in your chakras helps you learn and grow. Working with your aura and chakras is a form of preventative medicine. A conscious connection to your energy field allows you to amplify life-affirming thoughts and feelings as well as clearing negative ones from affecting your health. Each chakra has different experiences to offer us.
The first chakra deals with issues about surviving on the planet in a physical body. One of the most important lessons to learn while being in a physical body is how to remain consciously connected to our soul and spiritual selves while taking care of our body.Part of the Divine plan of us living harmoniously on earth is that many of our medicines are growing naturally around us or are easy to grow in our own backyards. Dandelionroot i s an abundant herb that can help us to be more consciously connected to our bodies so that we can align with synchronicity and manifest our soul purpose.
The second chakra relates to issues of empathy, creativity and sensual expression.Calendulais an easy to grow herb.

One of the benefits of balancing the second chakra is that a greater sense of intimacy and companionship can develop with your partner. It also helps to create healthy boundaries so that you are not empathing other peoples feelings to a point of hurting or confusing yourself and your choices.
Marshmallow relaxes the third chakra and softens our personal efforts to control life. When you feel a sense of urgency or attachment to the outcome of a situation or plan, a tea or a few tincture drops in water of Marshmallow root can allow you to surrender to the flow of the present moment. It helps you to relax your diaphragm and reconnect to your breath.When there is a situation that contributes to a feeling of powerlessness you may often feel tension or a "knot in your stomach". People who live year after year letting someone or something outside of themselves be in charge of their life may develop ulcers in the physical body. Many diseases have their origins in unprocessed emotional issues that repress life flow energy and interfere with cellular transformation.
Unconditional love for yourself and others can be enhanced when taking Hawthorne berries.

Even an herb bundle made with Hawthorn berries when worn over the heart region, helps you to focus on the soul qualities in relationships rather than personality differences.
Weve all felt oppressed at one time or another when we did not or could not speak our truth. That feeling is related to the fifth or throat chakra shutting down.

I'd start of by becoming educated and have the RIGHT information before you start. What I've been doing, suggested from a member on this site, is by visualising a bright ball of white light between your eye brows (center of forehead) and visualise it getting brighter and expanding and feel it opening up.
You can use purple crystals like amethyst, or just meditating and focusing on your third eye. You need to REPEATEDLY meditate and try to open your third eye or you won't get any results. It varies from person to person.
Hope this helps! x
