Thank you for adding the audio HP HoodedCobra.
As for people asking about the astral senses meditation I posted a while back, the meditation HP HoodedCobra shared here is significantly more powerful and the method is more complete as well. I do not believe there is benefit in combing the two.
The astral senses meditation I posted, I received instructions on how to do a few years back when I was asking for stronger methods to activate and empower my astral senses (And the upper chakra's), however I was (And am) significantly less advanced than HP Maxine, or HP HoodedCobra, so the method I received is not as complete or correct.
My astral senses are quite active, however even Maxine used to say 100% accuracy is difficult to achieve, so let alone for me, my senses, or at least my ability to interpret and understand what I received during communication was certainly lacking.
What you can receive depends a lot on your own level at the time, and also your need. I was very inexperienced in working with Akasha back then (I was also still very new to working with the elements in general, and I cannot say it is my expertise), as most of my focus had been on empowering my chakra's and reconnecting to my soul (Gaining conscious control over my astral self and soul body, the three main layers of the being). Therefore, I didn't get anything regarding the use of Akasha in empowering the Pineal gland or astral senses.
In my meditation as I was back then, I was driven more so by my desire to experience rather than to grow, which led me to be overconfident in my ability sometimes and general overestimation of myself. I wasn't ready to experience true growth, as too much immaturity remained to really allow for stable growth. What I shared was unfortunately affected by that.
I can also say I tried to do too much at once.
I believe now after more knowledge and practice has accumulated, it is better to focus separately on the different chakra's in meditation and empowerment. Through empowerment of the parts, you empower the whole. Trying to focus purely on the whole neglects the individual parts and leads to less power where it matters most for the whole to be complete and function at its best. I didn't understand that there, and thought often, more is better, such as trying to focus on all the chakra's at once, which just doesn't work, the minds focus will inevitably be spread thin.
The Pineal, 6th, third eye and to an extend the minor chakra's of clairaudience and clairvoyance are all related and can be worked on together.
The temple chakra's do not govern the astral senses, but if these are not empowered enough, they can cause a bottle neck, specifically a bottle neck for energy to flow freely between the crown and the rest of the soul. Also, opening and empowering these improves in my experience the flow of energy through the upper chakra's and all the nadis flowing between them. In case these are blocked or lacking empowerment compared to the other upper chakra's they can limit ones astral clarity and control. However, it is better to empower these separately from the other mentioned chakra's as their purpose and energies are different.
The Crown chakra governs different parts of the soul and different energies than the 6th and the chakra's related to the 6th, so it should also be empowered separately. The Crown too is not directly related to the openness of the astral senses either, and one can experience openness and decent communication even if the crown is still blocked. Ones ability to correctly interpret and specifically ones wisdom and understanding, as well as the scope of ones perception will be limited in that case, but those are separate aspects and abilities, therefore requiring its own effort and work.
Therefore, if one wants to use the method I shared some years ago for empowering the astral senses, it would be better to limit it to the 6th chakra, the extensions of the 6th, the Pineal and the minor chakra's of the head governing clairaudience and clairvoyance (Probably it is better to only do minute focus on the Pineal, and use the meditation shared by HP HoodedCobra here to work on and empower the Pineal instead). Akasha can also be used same as it is used here in this meditation, instead of white gold light.
Vibrating Inanna is in my experience very effective at empowering the astral senses and 6th chakra, which helps greatly in becoming aware of the astral, being able to communicate with our Gods and other related abilities.
However, for the Pineal specifically, it is by far superior to use this meditation. The method shared here is far more complete, and focused, which is just better for empowerment.
I hope this helps clear anything up and answer any questions.
