What are the benefits of 'Flame Gazing" and why you should do it to help release anxiety, benefit sleep and sharpen your cognitive abilities
There are many reasons why you should flame gaze.
Long periods spent staring at a flame will stimulate the third eye, and this is where the pineal gland is. The pineal gland responds to light.
This is one of the reasons why we feel mesmerized when staring at a flame or fire.
The pineal gland is a small organ in the brain that synthesizes and secretes melatonin, a hormone that regulates the wake-sleep cycle and seasonal functions. The gland has been referred to as the "third eye" because it has photoreceptor cells similar to those in the eye's retina.
Flame gazing has the potential to improve sleep as well as increase intuition, alertness, psychic powers, and creativity.
Flame gazing has been used for thousands of years by many different cultures worldwide, such as ancient India, Native Americans, Tibetans and Australian Aborigines.
It is believed that flame gazing stimulates the third eye, which is linked to our intuition and psychic abilities.
It helps calm my mind, sharpens my attention, and increases cognitive performance.For myself, it aids clairvoyance (seeing things without using physical senses) and precognition (knowing something before it happens).
Are you worried about not sleeping, or are you tossing and turning? Concentrating on the flame causes the brain to release relaxing alpha waves, which help relax your mind and body and can help you fall aseep. Be careful of a burning candle beside your bed.
Meditation and Flame Gazing
Meditation is an effective tool to detach from the stress of daily living. You can put your cares and problems aside and have the candle flame as the single point of attention.
Relax your body, and slow your breathing. Allow your eyes to focus softly on the flame. You can either relax, let your mind settle or use it as a step to connect with your Spirit team.
When I candle gaze frequently, I feel renewed, at peace, and recharged afterwards.
Let me know how candle gazing has worked for you
