Seeing the Bigger Picture with the Inner Eye

Third EyeSome issues can be addressed in an “American Feel Better Minute” (see March 30th blog). Some are to be explored in a lifetime, such as the Inner Eye.

The properties of the Inner Eye Chakra or Third Eye Point (approximately between the eyes) are truth, intellect, self-evaluation, intuition, spiritual insight and seeing the bigger picture.
According to (R)evolutionScape: There are two things to keep in mind:1. The mind is not contained only in the brain. It is all over your body and
beyond it. It is infinite, just like spirit. Your mind and your brain are two ‘separate’ things.
2. There is only truth as Reality, and truth and love are very much tied together, the same thing. Fear is tied to and is the same thing as illusion. These are the root polarities of everything that exists.

So this chakra involves itself with the discovery of truth about your self
and your world. It seeks to go within to your inner self and see what it can find there. It seeks to listen to the unseen power of your being. It recognizes that you may be in this world but not of this world. And it seeks to place your experiences in the context of the bigger picture of life and not just look at them from the fear-based point of view of ego.

Poor development in this chakra results in false beliefs about your self, fear of who you really are, and untrue perception.

Once you start dealing with this chakra, you enter a space that is increasingly harder to define using the symbols of language such as words. Inner wisdom is not linear and analytical like the ego thinking is. You cannot cut it up and analyze it. It is in whole.

You cannot be taught inner wisdom. You can only be pointed in the right direction.

Only you alone can take the journey within. You can receive help but the steps and discovery are yours to make. In fact you have tremendous amounts of help available to you.

One Response to Seeing the Bigger Picture with the Inner Eye

  • Michele, I was reading a passage in “A Course In Miracles (ACIM)” that said the same things you have said in this blog. Then I received your blog only a few hours after my morning reading is providence indeed. Here is how ACIM made the same point:

    “I (Jesus) said you have but two emotions, love and fear. One (love) is changeless but continually exchanged, being offered by the eternal to the eternal. In this exchange it is extended, for it increases as it is given. The other (fear) has many forms, for the content of individual illusions differs greatly. Yet they (forms of fear) have one thing in common; they are all insane. They are made of sights that are not seen, and sounds that are not heard. They make up a private world that cannot be shared. For they are meaningful only to their maker, and so they have no meaning at all. In this world their maker moves alone, for only he perceives them (his fears)”.

    I have felt for quite sometime now, that in their essence all these Spiritual traditions teach the same message, and my morning reading and your blog, inspired by a very different traditions confirm this belief. But what is truth anyway? Again ACIM:

    “Truth is. It can neither be lost nor sought nor found. It is there, wherever you are, being within you”

    Thank you for making my day.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
