First off, a little bit about myself. (Also, I apologize if this is rather scrambled, my mind tends to wander and jump around quite often.)
I am 23, a Reiki Level II practitioner, I am a very weak Empath, and I am currently struggling with my abilities. I have been going through another healing crisis, it seems. I have been having some self-doubt about myself, and if I truly do have any more abilities, as my Reiki Master told me. While I have been doing better the past few days, I suppose there might still be some doubt in my mind.
I have been told, and have my own strong feelings, that I will someday be able to see auras, hear/see ghosts, and my empathic abilities will become much stronger. I've also been having a strong urge to open my third eye lately. So, I have tried to meditate on it before. Every time I try to meditate, on anything, nothing really seems to happen. I don't see anything, I don't hear anything. It's always just black. It's always been like this. I have tried to get in contact with my spirit guides, my guardian angels, my spirit animals, nothing. However, lately, I have been feeling my spirit animals more lately. I was told that they were dragons, and after doing some meditation, and after asking a trusted family friend, I have realized this much to be true. I have asked them for help, but it seems as if their answers aren't really reaching me all that much.
With my urge to open my third eye, I went to my family friend to see if she could help me, since I seem to be unable to. She helped give me a little nudge, and then told me that it was now open, however, there was a veil over it. So, I still wouldn't be able to get my abilities yet.
The reason I want it to open so bad is because then I can know, and understand what my path is. Since I have been struggling with it, I want to know more, understand more, be guided and do what I am meant to do. I have my Reiki, but I truly feel like I'm supposed to be learning so much more. I truly want to help people heal themselves and conquer their own inner demons. And I feel like I'd be able to do it more if my third eye were truly open. So I could see what's going on around me, and understand more.
So, my questions are, should I be trying to force it open, or should I just let it take it's course? Is there anything I can do to help my blocked meditation attempts? Any ideas on how I can communicate with my spiritual team? And if I can continue to work on my third eye, got any tips at all?
