The Pineal Gland
Can you see that grayish reddish gland within the human brain. This gland has the power to enable you to break out of this reality and achieve superhuman feats within any aspects of your life; your body, your career, health, or relationships. It does not matter because it is so powerful. If you want more wealth, you can use the pineal gland to do it. If you want a better relationship, you can use the pineal gland to do it. Rene’ Descartes was onto the Pineal Gland and called it the Principal seat of the soul and believe that it was the point of connection between the intellect and the body. This is most likely the key to tapping into your higher self and the universe. There are some fascinating overlapping facts that surround this little gland. As it turns out, the Pineal Gland appears in the human embryo at 49 days of gestation and 49 days is also the time that the Tibetans believe it takes ones soul to reincarnate onto the next. An embryos differentiation into male and female also occurs at the 49th day. Most importantly, the pineal gland is the part of your brain that allows you to connect to a higher state of consciousness. It does this through the production and secretion of a compound called dimethyltryptamine or DMT. DMT is like a chemical cousin of serotonin and a profound hallucinogen. There are few ways that your Pineal Gland is triggered to secrete DMT. One of these is when it is under extreme duress or stress. Although it is usually well-guarded from stress, you can stress it out and one of the most stressful times we can experience is death or a near-death experience. When someone is close to death, the last thing they are aware of is this huge release of DMT in their body. A release of DMT can lead to experience of separation between your body and your consciousness. Basically, an out of body experience and act as a catalyst for near-death experiences. In essence, DMT induces the machinery of the afterlife to literally spring into motion. Dr. Rick Strassman who studied the effects of DMT for over 20 years refers to DMT as the “god molecule” or the “spirit molecule.” As a result of his test subjects claiming they had been in contact with nonhuman or god-like beings under the compounds influence. The hallucinogenic state that DMT triggers that is basically what happens when you are dreaming is a temporary disconnection from the physical body that allows you to traverse higher realms. In this state, you are no longer bound by restrictions of time or conventional laws of physics. Professor Alan Watts, a philosopher and expert in comparative religion described the effects of DMT as “Load Universe into Cannon, Aim at Brain, FIRE”. Your Pineal Gland acts as a virtual door or portal to directly connect you to the universe and cosmic consciousness. While in this state, your spirit can then use this gateway to connect with the universe and create what you want or make something a reality. When your Pineal Gland is activated, it transmits a glow of light energy. There is even a mention of the Pineal Gland in the Bible. In Matthew 6:22 it says, the “Light of the body is the Eye. If therefore thine Eye be Single, thy whole body shall be full of Light.” Think about that for a second. If that eye is full of light, then your whole body shall be full of light. So, how do you keep your body full of light and your Pineal Gland in tiptop shape to continue to connect to high consciousness and project your new reality. However, it is not unusual due to a less than optimal diet, bad sleep habits, and lack of exercise that your pineal gland may become atrophied, calcified and not fully functioning. This breakdown of your Pineal Gland can happen in a handful of ways:
1. Regularly consuming heavily refined or processed foods or carbonated drinks.
2. Exposing yourself to toxic chemical fluoride in your water and toothpaste.
3. Even lack of natural sunlight can be to blame and these are just a few.
Here are a few things you can do to activate and awaken your Pineal Gland.
1. Get more direct sunlight.
2. Eliminate processed and refined foods from your diet and decrease your refine sugar intake.
3. Increase your intake of fresh organic fruits and vegetables and alkaline foods like nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Eating raw cocoa or even dark chocolates helps.
4. Using fluoride-free toothpaste or and drinking non-fluoridated water.
5. Reduce stress. Adrenalin and cortisol deplete the melatonin and serotonin within your body.
6. Also get more sleep in DARKNESS. You will produce more melatonin sleeping in complete darkness. Melatonin in turn awakens your pineal gland.
7. Exercise your Pineal Gland.
Just like your body and your brain, your pineal gland also needs to be worked. The exercise is both physical and mental. Physical exercise like practicing Yoga (particularly inversions) when you are upside down are particularly helpful because they increase blood flow to your pineal gland. However, beyond Yoga, the best way to exercise your Pineal Gland is by Meditating and using the sacred symbol like the Sri Yantar to focus your intent. Meditating on the integrate geometric work of the Sri Yantra for prolonged periods of time literally alters the shape of your brain and increases Alpha brainwave activity. So it acts as a deeper state of consciousness and allow your brain to enter the alpha brainwave state, you can really tap into your inner powers or your Siddhi’s . Just as the Pineal Gland is considered the creation and the gateway to create what you want, so is the central Bindhu of the Sri Yantra. They say, when you can see the Bindu’s split into three, you are in pure creation, meaning your Pineal Gland is receptive to being used to create your reality and secrete the hormones you need to make that happen.
