This is about my third week of meditating on the pineal gland using the techniques outlined in Jill Ammon-Wexler's ebook on the pineal gland. What I've learnt so far is not to try too hard or get hung up on the results. If my mind wants to wander then I let it muse a bit, valuable insights come from this, then I gently steer my focus back to resting my minds eye at that point between the brow. Sometimes the indigo colours I get at the start of mediation elude me and when that happens I surrender all expectations and either send love from my heart chakra to my third eye or do a breath through my nose and sending it towards the third eye, down into my abdomen and then breathing out through the mouth to really let go.
Once I'm "in" and my focus locks on then so far there seems to be a couple of distinct stages. The first stage is experiencing the colours and lights on the screen behind the eyes. This is heightened by wearing a light proof mask and using a darkened room. I got a mask off ebay that has built in therapeutic magnets for the acupressure points and this seems to help greatly. What I experienced last night during this phase was a world of light and an awareness of my body as light. I experimented with how different thoughts and feelings and attitudes affected this light. I can't quite find the words to describe it yet. The second phase I've experienced when I do a long mediation, about 40 minutes in the screen show stops and there is a sense that there is only consciousness and there is a sense of being everywhere and nowhere. Struggling to express it - it seems to be a loss of the sense of locality.
I'm still sometimes using Brainwave Tuner app on my android tablet, which I updated last week from the lite to the full version. The best one for me has been the sleeep induction which use to take me to the edge of sleep but I don't let myself go to sleep. From my reading about brainwaves this would seem to be the best way to get into the delta waves of lucid dreaming or insights.
