A systematic method.

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be
full of light.
This book describes a systematic process to open the third eye.
It has been written for those who cannot be satisfied with only an intellectual
understanding of spiritual realities and who wish to gain access to direct experience.
The development of spiritual vision requires the patient building of some new organs of
energy, of which the third eye is an essential member. These new structures are not
physical, nevertheless they are very real and tangible. Once fully developed, the
perceptions coming through them appear clearer, sharper and far more substantial than
those coming from the physical senses. A number of techniques will be described which
aim at a methodical cultivation of this new form of perception. Our approach always
emphasizes the superiority of experience over mental concepts, of first-hand knowledge
over belief. Truly, it is not what you presume or accept as true that will bring about a
spiritual regeneration but what you experience directly. Therefore, the reader is not asked
to believe what is written here but to practise the exercises.
No former spiritual training or background is expected before starting the practices. I
suggest that you temporarily forget all you know so that you can engage in the techniques
with fresh awareness. Having shared this knowledge with hundreds of students in the
courses run by the Clairvision School in Sydney, I know that it is not always those who
have meditated for years who enter the field of perception most easily. To some, spiritual
knowledge gives wings and provides keys to open all the doors; but to others it is more
like chains preventing them from absorbing anything new. The more you are able to drop
any preconceived ideas, the easier it will be to see.
It should be clearly understood that our aim is not to develop the blurry atavistic
clairvoyance of trance-medium psychics but to


step towards the vision of the Self. Even though several extra- sensory perceptions will
arise as you practise the techniques, the purpose is clearly to find the Self and to learn to
see the world from the Self instead of seeing it from your usual mental consciousness.
This book should be taken as an introduction, a first thread, towards a completely
different mode of perception and thinking. It has been written to serve the vast number of
human beings who are presently ready to connect with spiritual realities and to step into a
new form of consciousness. The techniques it offers are designed for people who are part
of the world. They do not invite you to withdraw from your daily activities but to start
performing them with a different awareness and a new vision, thereby implementing the

line of Proverbs 3:6: In all your ways know Him, said by the Talmud to contain the
entire essence of the Torah.
After saying these words it may be important to state that the Clairvision School is not a
New Age organisation. Its methods and techniques are based on quite different
principles from those usually found in the New Age movement. In particular at no time
do the Clairvision techniques use any channelling, creative imagination or positive
affirmations. No hypnosis or autosuggestion is used either. The techniques of the
Clairvision School are based on a direct awakening of the body of energy, and the
philosophy and background of the school are to be found in the western tradition of
esoteric knowledge. If you happen to experience intense openings and realisations while
putting our techniques into practice, it is quite possible that you too have a connection
with this tradition. In particular it is expected that many will have clear awakenings in the
third eye while reading the book.
Awakening the Third Eye is one of the introductory books to the Clairvision Corpus, the
body of knowledge which is the background of the Clairvision School. The Clairvision
Corpus contains both experiential and theoretical knowledge in the field of consciousness
and the mysteries of human nature, with a special focus on transformation and inner
alchemy. Alchemy can be defined as the art of raising the level of vibration of matter.
Inner alchemy therefore refers to a form of spiritual development in which the ultimate
purpose is not to abandon any connection


with the manifested creation and dissolve oneself, but to build up a vehicle in which the
fullness of the Self can be experienced permanently, even while living in the physical
world. This body of immortality corresponds to what the Christian tradition has called the
glorious body and to the paramam vapu of the Upanishads. It is similar in many ways, if
not identical, to the lapis philosophorum or philosophers stone of the alchemists, and to
the Grail, heart of the western esoteric tradition.
Awakening the Third Eye lays the foundations for an experiential approach to a work of
inner alchemy. Many of the techniques given in the beginning are not to be regarded as
alchemical in a strict sense, but as a necessary preparation without which the more
advanced phases of the work would not make any sense. Rather than first developing
theoretical aspects at length, indications will gradually be given throughout this book and
the following ones to clarify the purposes and principles of a work of inner alchemy. The
nature of our topic will also provide ample opportunities to develop various aspects
related to subtle bodies.
