Eye Gazing As A Spiritual Practice

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comEye gazing is a powerful, ancient practice in which two people engage in a shared meditation practice during which eye contact is maintained for an extended period of time. Eye gazing is usually done for about ten minutes at a time, although it can certainly be any duration preferred.

Eye gazing can be used to access past life information, promote healing, connect to your higher self, guides, or angels, and almost anything else you can imagine. The eyes are the windows to our soul, and our soul is the singularity that connects us to everything else: the Universe, Source, God, the Divine. Eye gazing is also a profound manifesting tool we can use to further develop our ‘spiritual muscles,’ so to speak.

Before you include eye gazing in your spiritual practice, I recommend you read my previous blog on the essentials of eye gazing. Once you are more familiar with the basics, you can also apply the following guidelines to your eye gazing practice.

To use eye gazing for a specific purpose, you must set a clear intention beforehand, and then hold that intention throughout the gaze. You hold an intention by simply keeping a gentle awareness in the back of your mind that what you are seeing during the gaze is relevant to your intention, and trusting that whatever comes forward is always relevant.

It’s important not to simultaneously hold any expectations about what you’re going to see, or to resist anything that comes up spontaneously, just because you don’t immediately see its relevance or connection to your intention. Keep an open mind and be flexible and accepting in the flow of your gazing experience.

If you’re gazing alone, sit comfortably in front of a mirror, take a few centering breaths, and then state your intention out loud. I prefer to speak aloud in my spiritual practice whenever possible, as words are energy forms and therefore add a ‘weight’ to our prayer requests, intentions, and affirmations. State your intention out loud and ask Spirit to provide insight around this intention. Use language that feels right for you.

Past Lives Gazing

To view past lives in your gazing, you might say something like:

Spirit, Higher Self, Guides, I seek insight into my past lives. Please show the former lives I have lived for me to grow and learn for my highest good.

Now settle into the gaze and be open. Hold no expectation of what may arise. Surrender to the experience.

Higher Self Gazing

To gaze for the purpose of connecting with your higher self, guides, or angels the intention you set may be something like:

Spirit, Higher Self, Guides, I seek connection and communication with you. I wish to know myself more deeply and receive the guidance of my Metaphysical Self. Please commune with me in this gaze.

Life Design Gazing

The intention you set for gazing can also be for a specific life challenge or problem to promote healing and personal growth. For example, if there is a recurring situation in your life – something you keep coming up against and you’re not sure why or how to overcome the pattern – asking for insight into this pattern can bring up information around where the pattern originated, and how to break out of it.

Often, just bringing the light of your awareness onto a situation can help dissolve some of the stuck energy. This can be helpful if you’re struggling with addictive patterns as well.

Partner Gazing

When doing gazing with someone else it’s important to set a mutual intention so that there are not conflicting energies at play. Decide together what you wish to gaze for, be it viewing your shared past lives, or receiving messages for one another or from one another, building mutual understanding or trust together, and so on. You can literally set any intention together you may wish to.

Gazing with a romantic partner is the same as with a friend or family member, although you may instead wish to set romantic intentions together. These could be intentions such as gazing to help deepen relationship trust, building intimacy, or to have a more intuitive connection with each other, and so on.

Healing Gazing

Eye gazing is essentially always a healing process. The more you do it, the more you learn about yourself and build intimacy with your soul, your higher self, and the Universe. Gazing transcends the illusion of separateness.

However, if you’re wish to use eye gazing as an energy, mental or physical healing modality specifically, I recommend setting the intention of presence. You can do this alone, or with another person. You may however want to start out by doing it alone, and then bring in others from time to time. The idea is to first be truly present with yourself.

Unhealed aspects of self are the things we have rejected and turned away from. So, the healing intention may sound something like:

Spirit, Higher Self, Guides, I set the intention to be fully and completely present with those aspects of myself that I have rejected, the parts of myself that I feel is not good enough or unlovable, the aspects which I hide. I set the intention to be completely present with my shadow, and my most challenging emotions.

If you can identify one or more of these rejected aspects of self specifically, even better, for example:

I set the intention to be completely present with the aspect of myself that uses people for my own gain.

I set the intention to be completely present with the aspects of myself that are so outrageously angry it makes me want to lash out.

I set the intention to better understand why I struggle with alcohol and how to stop drinking excessively.

I set the intention to better understand why I self-sabotage and how to stop limiting myself this way.

These are just some suggestions, the sky is the limit here! Use your intuition to craft an intention that is meaningful to you and directs your attention to where you wish to grow and learn.

But you may not be consciously aware of these aspects of self, so you can simply leave it open for your higher self to show you which aspects you have rejected. We are often not even aware we’re doing it. Being present with these aspects can help us discover where it came from and then take a step toward healing that behaviour.

Gazing really is that simple. It is a versatile meditative practice for going within effortlessly and delve deeper into your spiritual selves. I absolutely can’t encourage you strongly enough to try it! We can also use this practice to deepen our relationships with others in our lives. I highly encourage you to try this modality, either alone or with a partner, as you’re comfortable.
