“They say that the eyes are the window to the soul.“
With just a simple glance we can convey everything from interest to arousal, joy, annoyance, and anger.
Through eye contact we can connect with others on a much deeper level.
“Eye contact is an extremely powerful & universal form of nonverbal communication”
The Power Of Conscious Eye Contact
From the time we are infants, we need eye contact for healthy neurological growth.
As we grow older, we use eye contact to connect with other people, especially when it comes to conveying messages of attraction and arousal.
In ancient Sufi traditions, as well as Buddhist and Hindu tantric traditions, eye gazing or soul gazing is a sacred practice that is used to deepen trust and intimacy, awaken the heart energy, channel powerful sexual energy, and create a pathway to the divine.
By gazing deeply into another person’s eyes, you transcend the ego and begin to tap into the universal male or female energies in your partner and in yourself.
From here it is possible to reach a higher state of consciousness an ecstatic state of spiritual union.
In fact, many mystics, including the 13th century poet Rumi, believed that soul gazing was a means of obtaining true enlightenment.
