Trataka is a yogic exercise where we fix our gaze on an object, often a candle light. This will strengthen your focus and help you to deepen your meditations. It is traditionally used as a purification exercise for the eyes and the 3rd eye, the flame acting also on our Solar plexus (3rd chakra : Manipura, located at the navel), improving self-confidence and self esteem.
For this exercise you need to prepare a candle and a stool to bring the candle to your eye level, an arm length in front of you. Alternately, you can fix a point the size of a pea, arm length in front of you, at eye level.
This meditation is part of the 10 days guided meditation challenge course created by Julie & Florian.
