Did you know that the very center of your brain is home to a raisin-sized gland that just might be the key to the Universe? Your pineal gland is a tiny organ (yep, about the size of a raisin) located at the very center of your cranium. Despite its small size, the role it plays in your spiritual evolution is more important than any other single part of your body.
Want proof? Consider this: Your pineal receives more blood flow per cubic area than any other gland in your body. In other words, compared to all your other organs – including your lungs, your heart and your brain – this tiny little gland gets the highest concentration of energy.
The Insomniac’s Problem Child
Your pineal gland is super-sensitive to light. In fact, it’s the key player in your sleep and waking cycles. Here’s why: when light strikes the retina of your eyes, it travels through a tiny nerve system and into the gland. When the lights go off (like at night) it sends a signal to the pineal to begin secreting melatonin, which activates your nervous system to go into sleep mode.
Of course, that’s when everything is working, right …
When your pineal gland is compromised, it doesn’t necessarily work when you need it to. This is why I call it the insomniac’s ‘problem child’. Did you know that today, more than 30% of the population in the US suffers from insomnia? And while stress plays a major role here, we can’t ignore the fact that a compromised pineal gland (which most Americans have, as you’ll see below) doesn’t produce melatonin the way it’s supposed to.
Your “Mind’s Eye” … it’s Real!
In the ancient Vedic energy system of the chakras, the pineal gland is referred to as ‘Ajna’ or ‘3rd Eye’ chakra. This is because the ancients knew that, in fact, the pineal gland functions very much like an eye—an inner eye.
Modern studies reveal that the gland’s watery interior contains rods and cones—just like those found in the retina of your eyes! That’s right, your ‘3rd eye’ has a structure remarkably similar to your two physical ones. This is why when you visualize something strongly enough, you can literally see it “in your mind’s eye.”
Blocking your Trans-Dimensional Portal
With these proven properties: high blood flow, a connection to your sleep cycles, and retinal-like rods and cones, the pineal gland obviously plays an important role in your overall well-being. Unfortunately for most of us, this gland is atrophied, dormant and calcified to the point of uselessness.
Why is this?
Research reveals another fascinating tidbit about your pineal gland: it secretes a substance called Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). DMT is a hallucinatory substance that is also found in the South American shamanic brew called Ayahuasca.
The interesting thing about DMT is that it induces experiences that can take you well beyond common states of awareness. In fact, it can unleash your dormant ‘super powers’ and enable you to access a higher consciousness.
One definition describes the effects of DMT this way: “Profound time dilation, time travel, journeys to paranormal realms, encounters with spiritual beings or other mystical/ trans-dimensional modalities.”
“Locked In” to 3-D?
In other words, your pineal is, in part anyway, designed for trans-dimensional access. But when it’s calcified, it keeps you literally ‘locked in’ to this 3rd dimensional reality. You are literally blocked from your ‘super powers’ and potential as a higher-conscious being.
For most of us, our pineal becomes dormant early in life. This is due to a number of factors, but it’s primarily caused by toxins, which calcify the liquid within the gland. In fact, medical science refers to the pineal as the ‘atrophied’ 3rd eye because by the time you are 12 years old, it is already calcified and hardened. By the time you are an adult? It’s atrophied entirely!
The biggest calcification culprit is the toxic chemical fluoride, added to drinking water and toothpaste in the United States. Heavily refined foods, carbonated drinks and a lack of natural sunlight are also to blame.
Fortunately it is possible to re-awaken your pineal, and when you do, you’ll have greater access to information and insight beyond your five physical senses. An awakened pineal will also help you accelerate learning, enhance your creativity, grow in wisdom, develop your innate psychic healing abilities and even experience states of bliss.
Just Like A Parachute
The pineal glands been called the ‘Seat of the Soul’, ‘Gateway to the Universe’, the ‘Mind’s Eye’ or ‘Doorway to Higher Realms.’ You could even argue that it’s the gateway that literally lets you ‘see’ into time and space in a non-linear way. Whatever you call it, the pineal is the key that unlocks the door between your normal, waking state and, well, the entire universe.
But here’s the deal … like parachutes and minds, it only works if it’s ‘open’.
How to Wake-Up your Pineal Gland
Re-awakening your pineal takes commitment and a great deal of work. The benefits though, far outweigh the effort it takes to get you there. Here are some ways you can begin to decalcify and re-awaken your true power source, your divine connection, your 3rd eye pineal gland:
- Get more direct sunlight
- Eliminate processed and refined foods from your diet
- Decrease your refined sugar intake
- Use fluoride-free toothpaste and drink non-fluoridated water
- Reduce your carbonated drink intake
Finally and most importantly: if you truly want to wake-up your pineal gland and activate your true power, you must commit yourself to a meditation practice that uses a sacred symbol to focus your intent.
One of the most powerful sacred symbols of all – and an ideal symbol for pineal activation – is the Sri Yantra. Yogis and master manifestors since before recorded history have used this ancient symbol in order to achieve the highest states of consciousness of all!
When you follow these guidelines, then project a powerful intention to awaken your pineal gland through specific types of meditative practice, you’ll begin to connect to higher states of consciousness – and your ‘super powers’ – with greater consistency and ease.
