I’ve been experimenting more with mantras lately and seem to be having good results. The mantras I’ve been using are Om Krim Kalikaye Namah (for protection as well as overcoming barriers and fears) and Om Namah Shivaya (for spiritual awakening). Since starting them I’ve felt a big shift in a very short period of time. Stress is more easily managed, I’m much more patient and just overall feel much lighter and better.
For third eye specifically I’ve found “Lepaca Ajna” to be effective, repeat as you are focusing on third eye opening. I’ve felt lots of pressure building in the center of my forehead while doing that. You could also try mudras for each chakra you want to open, some people like them and have success. I personally find some positions uncomfortable and therefore more distracting than helpful. Just do a web search for chakra mudras and you’ll find them all.
I’m not sure what you mean by crying out, it’s not really effective to cry, beg and grovel at their feet if that’s what you mean. Go to them with respect but confidence and assertiveness.
