The Surprisingly Intimate World of Eye Gazing

When it comes to tantra, most people think of things like meditation, breathwork, and yes, maybe even some saucy bedroom antics. But one practice that often gets overlooked is eye gazing – the act of staring into your partner’s eyes for an extended period of time.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Isn’t that just…awkward?” And trust me, I get it. The first time my partner and I tried eye gazing, we couldn’t stop giggling like a couple of middle schoolers. But as we settled into the practice, something strange started to happen.

As we gazed into each other’s eyes, all the walls we had built up over the years – the fears, the insecurities, the petty arguments – seemed to melt away. We were just two human beings, sharing a moment of deep connection and vulnerability. And yeah, it was a little weird at first, but it was also one of the most intimate experiences we’ve ever had.

But don’t just take my word for it. Studies have shown that eye gazing can actually trigger the release of oxytocin, the “love hormone” that promotes feelings of bonding and trust. And in the context of tantra, it’s believed that eye gazing can help activate the third eye chakra, leading to heightened intuition and spiritual connection.

Of course, all of this is easier said than done. Eye gazing requires a willingness to let go of your defenses and truly see your partner – flaws and all. But for those who are brave enough to try it, the rewards can be immense.

So, the next time you’re feeling disconnected from your partner or just need a little pick-me-up, why not give eye gazing a try? Who knows – you just might discover a new level of intimacy and connection that you never knew was possible. And if nothing else, you’ll have some hilarious stories to share at your next dinner party.
