Yoga Nidra - Eyebrow Center - Forgiveness


Rub your hands together vigorously until you feel a heat and warmth generating between them. Close your eyes and cup your palms over them. Bathe your eyes in complete darkness.

Rub your temples

Draw lines from your temples to your third eye

Take several slow and steady breaths into the calm… let your hands drop and rest by your side
The Agnya chakra is also referred to as “the third eye.” When energized, this chakra allows you to achieve the thoughtless awareness, or mental silence, that is so essential to rejuvenating meditation
Imagine a ball of swirling indigo light in the middle of your forehead. In this ball is everything you’ve ever seen. Everything you have watched, everything you have read, everything you have witnessed lives here Visualize a deep-indigo luminous chakra spinning slowly at the centre of your forehead

Imagine indigo light from the chakra filling up your head

Now visualize a beam of indigo light shooting down from the chakra to the lower five chakras –

Tense and release

Vishuddha, anahata, manipura, swadhishthana and mooladhara chakras

Imagine the indigo light filling up your entire body with a radiant energy…

Let an image of yourself rise in your mind’s eye. See yourself as you truly are, as a pulsing, vibrating hunk of pure potential. See the cosmos in your eyes, the stardust on your skin, the rhythms of nature in your heart’s beat… See only the beauty in you.

And when it happens that your mind would like to show you your flaws, to show you your failures and shortcomings (and it will), guide yourself back from that place to only contemplate your light, your innate goodness, your spirit…

Teach yourself to see your own light in the same way that you teach yourself a yoga pose. Focus and

Practice. What you think about yourself, you become. Practice holding a vision of love.

Feel all points of contac between the body and the floor . . .

Now bring the feeling of inner relaxation in the whole body

Become aware of the body and attempt to become completely still

Understand the importance of complete stillness

Become aware of the body from the top of the head to the tip of the toes

The sixth chakra is the chakra of forgiveness and compassion. Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the Spirit. It is the one that dissolves all our conditionings, ego, habits, false ideas of racialism, and all our misidentifications. It is the narrow gate which opens the way for our consciousness to ascend to its final destination


It is through this chakra that you learn to forgive yourself and others for human shortcomings.

Forgiveness is a gift to yourself. It frees you from the past, past experiences, and past relationships. It allows you to live in the present time. When you forgive yourself and forgive others, you are indeed free.

 (as usual) If you don't have a sankalpa simply say:

I forgive myself and I forgive others


Bring your awareness to the breath

Gradually bring the awareness to the eyebrow center

Imagine that you are breathing through the eyebrow center and the breath moves in and out from the forehead

Imagine the breath moves from the forehead to a point in the back of  head moving through the ajna chakra


Mentally repeat the mantra of
OM (pronounced AUM).  One chant of OM (AUM) Mantra should last for the entire exhalation.

Its a long “Oh”, followed by a semi long “Mmmm” during each exhalation.  Once all the air has been expelled, inhale fully again and begin to chant the mantra once more.

Visualize the OM sound coming from a point in the middle of the forehead just above the eyebrows and emanating throughout your entire body.


Open Minded – Closed Minded
Forgiving – Not Forgiving


Turn you inner gaze up to the space between, above, and behind your brows, what you see there will reveal to you an inner world at work, toiling to create your reality. What images live there? What stories churn? The world is full of distractions, and they will pull you in every direction if you let them. At this level, you must stay close to yourself. You must hold a vision the way you would your lover’s heart—carefully, diligently, sweetly. Find a quiet and still space, free from all forms of digital.

Say to yourself
I Forgive myself for
1) not understanding
2) for making mistakes
3) for causing pain to myself or anyone else
4) for not acting the way I should have acted

- even if the mind is resisting forgiving yourself – forgive yourself
- let of of all thoughts that distract you
- let go of all thoughts of blame
- when the mind wanders to unwholesomely bring it back
- redirect to forgiving yourself
- sit with a feeling of loving accept ace

See the person you need to forgive in your minds eye and forgive them
- don’t get involved with a story, that
I forgive you for
1) not understanding
2) for making mistakes
3) for causing pain to myself and anyone else
4)for not acting the way I should have acted

Now hear that person forgiving you for
Look into their eyes and hear them say

“I forgive you for. . .”

1) not understanding
2) for making mistakes
3) for causing pain to myself and anyone else
4)for not acting the way you should have acted

FORGIVE everyone and everybody, all of the time


Dove in flight
Olive branch
Friends smile
Hearty Laugh
White  lotus
Crescent Moon

(as usual)

Often you need to forgive yourself for putting up with painful experiences and not loving yourself enough to move away from those experiences. So love yourself, forgive yourself, forgive others and be in the moment. See the old bitterness and the old pain just roll off your shoulders as you let go, and the doors of your heart open wide. When you come from a space of love you are always safe. Forgive everyone. Forgive yourself. Forgive all past experiences. You are free.
