The Pineal Gland

The Pineal Gland

The third eye connection to the realms above

What is the Pineal Gland?

Situated directly in the center of the brain, the pineal gland has the remnants of the cornea and retina, and the same light sensitive cells as the eyes.
Through the times and across ancient cultures it has been referred to as our Third Eye and considered the pinnacle of our spirituality. Symbolically, it is referenced as a pine cone in most spiritual traditions, as it is similar to the actual shape of the gland.

The pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, which is a hormone in the human body connected to the circadian rhythm. The production of this hormone increases ten fold at night time, during the absence of blue light from the sun. As a result, the melatonin production plays a crucial role in the overall well-being and health of the body, mind & spirit complex, because it determines the quality of our sleep. The time during which our bodies regenerate and heal.

However, our use of modern devices such as cell phones, monitors, TV and modern lighting, are disturbing this natural production of meltonin. This is because they are emitting blue light, which we expose ourselves to after dark, thus decreasing the production and in turn the quality of our sleep and regeneration.  
A simple way to counter this is to wear blue blocker glasses after dark. 

Calcification of the Pineal Gland

As we grow older the production of melatonin decreases as the pineal gland gets calcified and hardens. This is due to the toxicity in our environment, food and water supply, pharmaceuticals, EMF exposure, etc. In addition, the pinal gland is not isolated from the body by the blood-brain barrier system. Fluoridation is one of the worst calcifiers of the pineal gland.

How to Decalcify the Pineal Gland

Detoxification of the pineal gland is a two-part process. First, ensure that no further calcification takes place, while at the same time reverse the calcification which has already occurred.

Avoid fluoride:
• use fluoride free toothpaste
• filtrate fluoride/other toxins from the drinking water 
• avoid any kind of tea from the Camellia Sinensis family (black, white, oolong & green tea)
• avoid non-stick teflon cookware
• avoid pharmaceutical drugs containing fluoride, aluminium, mercury and other heavy metals
• avoid fertilizers & pesticides

Avoid the intake of:
• GMO products
• meat (or at least lower the consumption)
• alcohol
• tobacco
• calcium supplements
(get natural calcium from: chickpeas, sesame seeds, spinach, almonds, cabbage, garlic, flax seeds, kale, white beans, parsley, figs, brazil & hazelnuts, amaranth, sunflower seeds, red kidney beans, beet greens, taro, pistachios & peanuts)

Essential oils stimulating the pineal gland:
• pine
• parsley
• frankincense
• sandalwood
• lavender

Other recommendations:

• eat organic unprocessed whole foods
• eat foods rich in magnesium
(brussels sprouts, kale, asparagus, spinach, artichoke, raspberries, green beans, bananas, cabbage, avocado, kidney beans, chickpeas, figs, black beans, walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, broccoli & peas)
• fasting
• practice Khecarī Mudrā
• being in darkness
• sun gazing at sunrise/sunset

How to Activate Your Third Eye

Once you have decalcified your pineal gland, there are many ways to stimulate and activate the Third Eye to increase intuition and clairvoyance. This includes meditation, healing, praying, astral travel, sound healing, light treatment, ritual, ceremony, ancient medicines, working with The Seven Planets, The Planetary Seals, with nature, etc.

The Third Eye’s relationship to DMT

In addition to the melatonin, the pineal gland generates an endogenous psychotropic chemical called DMT (dimethyl tryptamine). It is produced naturally by our pineal gland when fully operational, in rem stages of sleep, deep meditation and during fetal development, near death and death experiences.

Tryptophan is the amino acid which is the precursor to DMT, but the human body has an inhibitor enzyme which normally prevents DMT from being created from tryptophan in the body.

Knowledge of the pineal gland and its relationship to our ascension can be found across the world in shamanic cultures. The shamans of South America intuitively selected two herbs, the leaves of Psychotria which contain N,N-DMT added to the Caapi vine, a source of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) which turns off the enzyme preventing DMT conversion. And this way Ayahuasca came to be. 

Bufo Alvarius, a toad of the Sonoran desert, secreting 5-MeO-DMT – also known as Sapito – is another ancient medicine used in North and Central America.

But there are multiple sources of pineal gland enhancers found across the world of ancient shamanic traditions, such as: Peyote, Iboga, Kambo, Magic Mushrooms, Marijuana, etc. 
All of these do not contain the substance DMT. However, they do stimulate the pineal gland and induce a spiritual experience under the right circumstances. 

The Purpose of Shamanic Medicines

Shamans use these hallucinogenic medicines to connect deeply to nature, to find wisdom of our total interconnection with all of life, and to experience and understand the Oneness of The All. 

These ancient natural medicines reveal teachings to further the individuals spiritual journey and understanding.

However, as psychotropic substances they are illegal in many countries, and also has potential dangers. It is important to use it for healing and spiritual growth, not for entertainment or escape from reality. Each person has a different sensitivity, so they may be overdosed or underdosed. It is important to do research before taking this approach to an induced spiritual experience.

Above all, the right kind of setting and intention are of the utmost importance. It must be practiced with great respect as a sacred ceremony under the guidance of an experienced shaman or light worker. 

Is DMT the Philosopher’s Stone?

Could this be the sacred and mysterious divine nectar like substance released in the brain during the process of spiritual enlightenment as described by the Alchemists? Perhaps DMT is the much sought Philosopher’s Stone – the elixir of life in the tradition of Alchemy?

Many say that this substance occurs with the activation of the Third Eye pineal gland. This is where the Sun and the Moon, the masculine and feminine, right and left brain become balanced and synergistic.
In almost all ancient cultures of the world, there is a reference to the activation of the Third Eye and its link to spirituality and ascension.

Similarly to Hinduism, the goal of the spiritual purification and enlightenment in Alchemy is to break out of the cycle of reincarnation in the physical world, and return to the source – The One Mind of The ALL. God if you will!
