Discovering the Power of Tratak: My Personal Journey with Candle Gazing
Updated: Feb 14
As someone who is always seeking personal growth and development, I was thrilled to discover the ancient technique of Tratak. Tratak means to gaze without blinking, and it's a powerful tool for transformation that I've come to rely on for my own spiritual journey.
Tratak has been used for centuries in tantric practices, and it's said to help open the third eye chakra. The practice is simple: all you need is a single
candle, a quiet space, and a comfortable seat. Place the candle on a table with the flame at eye level and gaze into it without blinking for a few minutes, starting with three and gradually increasing the duration as you feel comfortable.
For me, the most important part of Tratak is letting go of distractions and fully surrendering to the experience. I like to set a timer for 5 to 10 minutes and use that time to simply focus on the flame and my breath. After my meditation, I take time to reflect on my thoughts, feelings, and experiences in my journal.
Tratak has been a powerful tool for me in my spiritual journey. I've found that it helps me connect with my inner self, calm my mind, and open up to new levels of consciousness. If you're looking for a simple yet effective way to transform your life, I highly recommend giving Tratak a try.
