a question that i want to ask you is that are you sure that your third eyes and your other chakras are open?all the channels of energy of your body must be open to start the opening third eye.
the way that you told is one of the way of opening third eye that it doesn't reply good to everyone.you can use other method of opening third eyes.some of them were introduce in this site and also in other sites.just check my comments in http://www.spellsofmagic.com/read_post.html?post=88529
where i told 2 ways of opening and making wide the third eyes.
You're right in a way. There are lots of ways to meditate, so there are not many wrong ways to do it. A good start is to clear your head. Use controlled breathing, in through the nose out through the mouth. When I first started meditating I would visualize pushing the negative energy out of my body and taking the positive energy in. Breathe in the positive, breathe out the negative. I assoigned them black and white to see the energies. Start here and drop me a PM and we'll discuss getting those chakras open.
kts is right! through meditations and and control of energy.. that is the way to somehow open the 3rd eye..
Developing your senses is the best way.. but for my case my third eye was open due to a vehicular accident when i was younger.
