Recently I attended a psychic fair at which there were many people from many walks of life. Some of these people were psychics or mediums or healers including massage therapists. There were a number of mediums with their tables set up along one wall - approximately 8 or 10. I thought it was a well organised psychic fair and I have been to a few over the years. Entry was only 2 dollars and you could come and go at will as long as you had your re entry stamp on your hand.
I looked around and saw a stand where you could try the Ajna light. Apparently this light stimulates your third eye. Ten dollars for a ten minute taster. Oh yes I thought I will try that. I found a space where I could put my name and come back later. Yay!
I went home and forgot to read the information the lady had given me to read before trying this light. I went back at 2.30 for my turn. WOW! As soon as the light started I could see all kinds of colours and patterns inside my closed eyes. The next thing I noticed was my eyes kept blinking continuously but more so with some colour patterns than others. After that I noticed my body was twitching as I sat in the chair. Incidentally I was also wearing headphones with brainwave entrainment music piping through them. This type of music apparently took you through all the different brainwave frequencies ranging through alpha beta theta delta and gamma. After the twitching I felt a rush of "energy" is how I would describe it coming up through my legs and body and felt as it were then going out of my head. I thought what is going on here. I was still conscious enough to wonder what was going on. I did think I might be flitting off somewhere. Was I having a seizure? Apparently this light can trigger seizures but more likely if you are prone to them. I thought I might have to tell her to stop it.
Next thing I hear her saying I have stopped it because you seem to be having a reaction to the light. I then related to her what I had experienced and she thought maybe I wasn't reacting but having some psychic experience. I told her some of my meditations give me a similar experience but nowhere near as powerful. I usually meditate lying down.
I can't stop thinking about my short session and what did actually happen. I think she said I had only had four minutes of the light. Apparently the light is not recommended for people who have a family history of epilepsy, have frequent migraines or if you have ever taken anti psychotic medication. I have suffered migraines at times in my life usually hormonal times such as adolescence and pregnancy, but have not had any for many years. I haven't been on anti psychotic medication and there is no history of epilepsy in our family. The operator of the light did ask these questions before I tried it. The light fickers at rates that also entrain your brain to different frequencies. I have in the past meditated to brainwave entrainment music. Actually i must try those out again! The light was only set at 13% and she said people that day had it up to 40% without the effects I had. I'm tempted to have another go at it. Have to be lying down though. As far as I am aware I do not think I have ever had an out of body experience and wonder whether I might have been about to then.
What does the Ajna Light do?
The ajna light stimulates your pineal gland to open your psychic vision. High power LED lights flicker at specific frequencies to move you into trance states. These range from light relaxation to deep meditative states. Your brainwaves resume their normal range once the session is over, however I'm told people feel more aware as a result. I have definitely felt like something has changed.
The ajna light has helped people deal with anxiety, depression and stress. It has also been used successfully to help children with sleeping problems.
This light is suppose to overcome the thinking mind in meditation practice and take you there even if you can't control those thoughts. So one would expect to experience something different and I certainly did that. You know the feeling when you are drifting off to sleep and you kind of jolt like you are stepping off the footpath and miss. It was like that - the big whoosh that came up through me and I have felt that before when meditating, followed by a kaleidoscopic pattern which is often followed by a face appearing to me. Not usually anyone I know who may have passed over, but we live in hope.
I have spoken to other people who have tried the ajna light. One lady described it as wicked. One said she saw all the patterns I talked about but didn't have that almost exhilarating feeling I had. That word just came to me now as I was typing. It was kind of exhilarating but a little scary at the same time as I was unsure what on earth was happening.
Maybe one day I will try it again.

Hi bravewarrior. When you put it like that it does sound a bit off. I haven't tried it again and probably wont actually. Yes if it can trigger seizures it can't be too good. Other people I watched having a session didn't seem to be at all bothered by it, almost as if it did nothing to them. Thanks for your comments.

I don't think I'd want to try this. It sounds dangerous. I believe psychic moments come naturally or are triggered by something simple, like a scent or a fleeting glimpse of something. Having artificial light flickering over me and odd sounds piped into my ears doesn't sound healthy. I love paranormal and supernatural stuff, but this sounds like a ruse. A dangerous one at that.

Thanks for your comments Phyllis Doyle. I have to admit it was a bit frightening/exciting. I think I should go back and see that lady because she was very interesting to talk to as well. She might be able to clarify some things for me.
Phyllis Doyle Burns from High desert of Nevada. on April 25, 2016:
What an exciting yet frightening experience that must have been for you, tebo. Well, maybe not frightening, but very different and full of wonder. I used to go to psychic fairs and always found them so interesting. I never heard of Ajna light before. Thanks for sharing this.
Andrew Petrou from Brisbane on April 16, 2016:
Yes I think spiritual short cuts can be risky. It's only a deep red light however.
Nell Rose from England on April 15, 2016:
Hi, yes that makes sense! I have graves disease (thyroid) as well so maybe it was that that caused your problem, I may be wrong in my assessment of it but stuff like that scares me! lol!
tebo (author) from New Zealand on April 14, 2016:
Hi Oztinato. That sounds interesting. Thank you for letting me know that. I shall see if I can find a red light, and give it a go. Thanks again for your interesting input.
Andrew Petrou from Brisbane on April 14, 2016:
another milder technique is using a dull but rich red light. Simply by keeping it in view for a while in a darkened room can trigger unexpected results. This is a known but rare method. It might be that the red end of the spectrum links up with the "invisible" spectrum normally out of reach. This may contain extra perception.
tebo (author) from New Zealand on April 14, 2016:
Thanks Nell for your comments. I keep thinking about it and talking about my experience to whoever will listen. I get varying opinions and value yours. The literature did say if you have sensitive eyes to light you maybe shouldn't try it and I didn't think that was a problem for me, but some time later I remembered how my eyes reacted so much to my thyroid issue. That could be why I reacted as I did. Apparently this light is suppose to take you in to deep meditation without you even trying. Some one else suggested it can induce fainting. I guess if you think about it fainting is similar to trancing out or out of body phenomena. Who knows? Have to admit I was a bit scared of the outcome.
Nell Rose from England on April 13, 2016:
Hi tebo, hate to be devils advocate but I think these sort of machines are so dangerous! as you said they could give you fits, or other mental health problems, they can't be proved to be useful for psychic stuff and I would run a mile! lol! sorry to put a dampener on it, but you know me, I love my psychic stuff but this sounds like a fake thing, that could be dangerous, nell

Thanks rajan jolly. To tell the truth I am still educating myself and if I come to some other conclusion I will let you know. Thanks for reading.
Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on April 10, 2016:
I had no idea on what ajna light. Thanks for this education.
tebo on April 06, 2016:
Hi DDE and thanks for reading my hub. Glad you found it interesting. I certainly did when I tried out the light!
tebo on April 06, 2016:
I must check that out. Don't know why people would want to do that. I like you however would like to find that switch. Thanks for your information.
Andrew Petrou from Brisbane on April 06, 2016:
yes it's long been known that a bright flashing light at certain speeds induces fainting. There was a fad on Japanese TV showing bright flashing lights that caused people to black out etc.
Not that it isn't an interesting topic. I for one would love to flick a switch and reach enlightenment but something tells me it isn't that easy.
It is interesting to see how the senses are related to consciousness on other levels such as this.
tebo (author) from New Zealand on April 05, 2016:
Hi Oztinato. Thanks for reading. I hadn't heard of rapidly flashing bright lights inducing fainting, but I must check that out. No idea whether it is the same thing or not. I did wonder if I was blacking out at one point.
Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on April 05, 2016:
tebo You once again surprised me with another great hub! Informative and unique.
Andrew Petrou from Brisbane on April 05, 2016:
Thanks for the interesting theme here. It sounds very similar to rapidly flashing bright lights that are known to induce fainting. Is there any great difference to this?
