Why is Tratak Meditation so special?
This meditation involves a quiet mind and a candle. The flame of the candle, when enters the eyes, generates “flame” or energy inside of you. This energy gets to the Pineal Gland and improves its function. The Pineal Gland is also known as the Third Eye.

Tratak Meditation – A Step By Step Guide
Firstly, prepare a room for meditation. It should be darker, so you can concentrate on your candle. You should also prepare some pillows to sit on. If the place is ready, you can sit down in cross legged position. Place your candle at 12-24 inches from your eyes. Now light your candle. And take deep and slow breaths. Try to clear your mind from every thought. Your only focus point is the flame of the candle. Try to maintain your gaze on the candle as long as you can. If you start to tear, it is good. Tears are the signs of the meditation working properly. If you feel that you have to close your eyes,then close them and take a small break. But maintain your breathing and clean mind. If thoughts are coming, acknowledge them. And then let them go. Don’t judge your thoughts because then you move your focus from the flame to the thought.
You can close your eyes after a while. Because the image of the flame remains in your mind’s eyes. Focus on the candle seen in your mind. It might change intensity and color. Be aware of every change. The slowly move your focus to the third eye chakra. It fills you with peace. Let that peace permeate every cell of your body. When the flame disappear from your mind’s eye, you are ready to open your eyes. But be aware of a few rules. Never open your eyes facing South. It is also recommended to rest your eyes on the leafs of a plant after you opened them. Enjoy!
