ALL EYES ON US - PART #1 THE THIRD EYE
What does the three-eyed crow that haunts the dreams of Bran Stark in "Game of Thrones" have in common with Blinky, the radioactive fish that swims past Springfield’s nuclear power plant in "The Simpsons"? Both have three eyes.
And they’re not the only ones. Buddhist statues, saints and Indian divinities such as the Hindu god Shiva also have one more eye than mere mortals. In India, the third eye or “Gyana chakshu” sits in the middle of the forehead between the eyebrows, one centimeter above the root of the nose. This is the point of the sixth chakra, one of seven spiritual centers dotted throughout the human body. This is the eye of knowledge, seat of conscience and divine intuition. The third eye opens to awaken “kundalini shakti”, the powerful force coiled at the base of the spine, as symbolized by a cobra. This state of awakening can be attained through meditation.
