The Pineal Gland.
The center of psychic awareness in the human mind. (It is associated with the sixth chakra).
What is it? It’s a biological stargate of immense power and unlimited navigation.
Some call it the 3rd eye or the mind's eye, the pineal gland was the last endocrine gland to have it's functions discovered as it is located deep at the center of the brain, almost hidden away like it were a secret from which comes the word secretion, which is what the pineal gland does. It secretes the hormone melatonin which affects our wake / sleep patterns, photoperiodic (seasonal / circadian) functions and also activates the dormant codons in our DNA often referred to as 'Junk DNA'. Melatonin affects our biorhythms and the aging process ...
The human brain also produces DMT (N,N-dimethyltryptamine) a naturally occurring tryptamine and potent psychedelic, found also in most plants ... Dr. Rick Strassman wrote a book called "DMT - The Spirit Molecule" which describes the effects of DMT and how it is closely related to human neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin affecting primarily our dream state. DMT creates a dream state which is like slipping into a different realm(s), other parallel realities ...
Groundbreaking new scientific research proving that the pineal gland is lined with cells that function just like the rods and cones in the retina of the eye.
Electrically, the pineal gland is wired into the brain just like the eye, via a “phototransduction cascade.” Some scientists have concluded there may be photons releasing inside the pineal gland that are picked up much like the eye, but they don’t understand how this could happen.
We do know the pineal gland is filled with a watery fluid that has tiny crystals floating around in it, including calcite and, quite possibly, DMT.
When DMT is synthesized in a laboratory and chipped out of its container, it emits massive bursts of colored light in a “piezochromatic” effect. This suggests that the crystals in the pineal gland could be expanding and contracting, and releasing visible photons, in a manner not unlike the function of a crystal radio.
In recent years, findings in neurochemistry and anthropology have given greater credence to the folklore which states that the pineal gland is the ‘third eye’, source of ’second sight’, ’seat of the soul’, or psychic centre within the brain (ajna chakra).
Recent neurochemical research has identified a class of compounds called beta-carbolines which appear to be endogenously produced in the pineal gland, most interest centering on the 6-methoxy-tetrahydrobetacarboline (GMeOTHBC), now being called pinoline. Beta-carbolines are found in the pineal gland in quantities equivalent to melatonin, the major pineal neurohormone, from which they may be synthesized. Beta-carbolines are neuromodulators in that they play a role in the fine tuning of the action of neurotransmitters (Buckholtz, 1980).
This neurochemical evidence concerning the pineal gland links directly with anthropologists’ reports on the usage of a vine of the genus Banisteriopsis by South American tribes in the Amazon area. The Indians use the vine specifically for psychic purposes: to induce out-of-body visions, to assist in healing, for clairvoyance and for precognition. There are dozens of psychoactive plants in the Amazon basin, yet ALL of the tribes scattered over this vast area use this vine for psi effects. Chemical analysis of the vine reveals the presence of various harmala alkaloids, these being chemically very closely related to the pinoline found in the pineal gland.
The presence of pinoline, and also what we now know of the various functions of melatonin, in the pineal gland, appear to link directly with, and make sense of, many experimental findings in parapsychology.
THE PINEAL GLAND
In general the pineal is a very active organ, having the second highest blood flow after the kidneys and equal in volume to the pituitary. It has the highest absorption of phosphorus in the whole body and the second highest absorption of iodine, after the thyroid. No other part of the brain contains so much serotonin or is capable of making melatonin. A unique anatomical feature is that it is an unpaired midline organ in the brain which, alone of all equivalent organs, has resisted encroachment by the corpus callosum (Wiener, 1968; Quay, 1974). Whilst being right in the center of the brain, it is actually outside the blood-brain barrier and so is theoretically not part of the brain!
It is innervated solely by the autonomie nervous system. It shows extreme variability in size, form and internal structure from one individual to the next (Wurtman, 1979). There seems to be considerable functional connection between the pineal and the pituitary, in that their actions tend to be antagonistic, the pineal being inhibitory in relation to the pituitary. When LSD level is measured in the brain, it turns out that it concentrates mostly in the pineal and pituitary glands; secondarily in the limbic system structures such as the hippocampus, amygdala and fornix; and thirdly in the hypothalamus. (Wiener, 1968).
GEOMAGNETISM AND THE PINEAL
Just recently there has been considerable interest in the effect of the earth’s magnetic field on living organisms, particularly as a direction finder. This interest seems to be spreading into much more esoteric fields, parapsychology being one of them. Recent research in California (Adams, 1985; Persinger, 1986) has suggested:
(a) that remote-viewing experiments are more successful when the geomagnetic field is relatively quiet; and
(b) taking selected criterion cases from Stevenson, Phantasms of the Living, and Fate, that spontaneous psi impressions were more frequent on days of quiet geomagnetic activity. This relationship did not hold for precognition.
Tart (1988) did two psi studies which he analyzed for possible correlation with geomagnetic effects. Again, as with Adams (1985) lower values of GMF activity on days preceding more successful psi performance was found, though not at a statistically significant level. One of the studies showed more successful psi on days of quiet geomagnetic activity, but not the other.
Persinger & Schaut (1988) found that telepathic experiences occurred on days when geomagnetic activity was less than when precognitive or postmortem psi occurred, and lower than average monthly or annual geomagnetic activity.
Dowsers rod movements also seem to be linked with changes in the intensity of the earth’s magnetic field (Williamson, 1987). Research into UFO’s, ley lines and ancient stone circles suggests that these also appear to be connected with geomagnetic anomaly (Devereux, 1982).
Barr et al. (1983) report that: ‘Pineal and autonomie cells respond to weak magnetic fields, with the former responding to a weak (earth strength) magnetic field by a significant change in electrical activity.’ Then in 1984 the following was published (Cremer-Bartels et al., 1984): ‘The general biological role ofmelatonin may be interpreted as translator of environmental conditions . . . The earth’s magnetic field (EMF) also undergoes diurnal and seasonal variations . . . Wever (1986) showed that shielding the EMF desynchronised circadian rhythms significantly even when light perception was not excluded . . . Welker et al. (1983) found that artificial magnetic fields in the strength of the EMF affected the melatonin biosynthesis in rat pineals at night . . . Cremer-Bartels et al. (1983) found that in quails an artificial magnetic field affects melatonin biosynthesis of the pineal and the retina is affected. They found a significant decrease in HIOMT activity in dead chicken retinas in response to a decreased magnetic field. With living quail and dead chicks they found a significant decrease in HIOMT activity with INCREASED magnetic field. NAT increases concomitantly with exposure to increased EMF, and decreases with decreased EMF. Therefore, NAT alone is important for synchronizing the pineal with the EMF’.
They conclude: ‘The determinations of the enzymes involved in the melatonin biosynthesis clearly revealed that 50 per cent increased or decreased EMF affects the melatonin biosynthesis in birds in vitro and in vivo . . . the natural EMF variations may be suggested to be the Zeitgeber of diurnal oscillations of NAT in the pineal gland and retina.’
Tuning in and turning on
When the pineal gland is stimulated geomagnetically, it produces chemicals that are similar to these plant hallucinogens, which help to alter consciousness. Other studies show that psychedelic drugs alter levels of melatonin and serotonin, resulting, in some cases, in psychosis.
So, how could the earth’s geomagnetic fluctuations affect these brain chemicals? Researchers have found that electromagnetic and geomagnetic fields strongly affect the production and activity of the enzyme hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase (HIOMT). It is this enzyme that is centrally involved in the production of melatonin and possibly 5-methoxytryptamine (5-MT). Any changes in the the magnetic field can produce changes in this enzyme’s activity.
Studies in animals have also shown that any strong change in the ambient magnetic field—whether increased or decreased—will inhibit production of HIOMT.
Other research shows that serotonin N-acetyltransferase, the enzyme involved in the production of melatonin, is strongly affected by electromagnetic fields.
If this is the case, says Roney-Dougal, any strong change in the earth’s ambient magnetic field would produce a rush of natural hallucinogens in our bodies, enabling us to be more psychically receptive.
The pineal gland is also activated by Light, and it controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it awakens, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.
Meditation, Visualization Yoga, and all forms of Out of Body travel, open the Third Eye and allow you to 'see' beyond the physical. As you practice, you will get it faster and more frequently. Your psychic abilities will increase as well as your dream time messages/experiences. You may first begin with your eyes closed, but as you practice, you will be able to open your third eye by focusing your attention and receiving messages with your physical eyes open. Planetary vibration/frequency is accelerating exponentially, allowing souls to peer into other realms far more easily than in the past. Activation is highly associated with the 'Rising of the Serpent' - Kundalini!
Astral Travel ~ Beginning with the withdrawal of the senses and the physical consciousness, the consciousness is centered in the region of the pineal gland. The perceptive faculty and the point of realization, are centralized in the area between the middle of the forehead and the pineal gland. The trick is to visualize, very intently, the subtle body... escaping through the trap door of the brain. Note: A "popping sound" may occur at the time separation of the astral body, in the area of the pineal gland.
Visualization exercises, are the first step, in directing the energies in our inner systems, to activate the 'third eye'. The magnetic field is created around the pineal gland, by focusing the mind on the midway point, between the pineal gland and the pituitary body. The creative imagination visualizes something, and the thought energy of the mind gives life and direction to this form.
THE PINEAL GLAND and THE SACRED MUSHROOM
Believe it or not, there is a direct link of the pineal gland to the legends of Christmas, Santa Claus, Jesus and, once again, to the Vatican, and it all has to do with the magical powers of an amazing plant known as the Amanita Muscaria mushroom. This particular species of mushroom is a strikingly beautiful, brilliant red in color with white polka dots on its cap, and a long white stem which features a skirt or veil about halfway down. Quite astonishingly, the image of the Amanita Muscaria mushroom can be found in religious and spiritual iconography throughout many ancient civilizations, just as the pine cone/pineal gland symbolism. The Amanita Muscaria mushroom contains a very high concentration of DMT and is considered to be the most naturally potent forms to be found in all of nature.
Foods that Feed The Pineal Gland
Drink Sunlight everyday! ~Sun Gazing Traditions are based predominately on pineal gland activation~
Seaweed vegetables that are sun-dried by the sun contain high amounts of vitamin D, many vitamins in the B-vitamin family and iodine. Those vegetables include and are not limited to kombu, arame, wakame, dulse, nori, etc.
Dark leafy greens like our kale, turnip greens, mustard greens, bok choy, collard greens etc are extremely nourishing for the pineal gland as this gland absorbs the properties of the green color of the vegetables and properly distributes them to the appropriate systems of the body so that the body is thoroughly nourished.
Foods that produce serotonin are almonds, bananas, hot peppers, rice, potatoes, and black-eyed peas and when consumed can also nourish and feed the pineal gland as well.
Alfalfa sprouts, Parsley, Wood Betony - stimulates the pineal gland.
Gotu Kola - feeds the entire brain as well as the glands
Wheat germ, olive oil, melons, and pineapple juice help to stimulate the pineal gland.
A raw Vegan diet is most desirable.
Drink filtered water
Mug Wort tea
Burning Frankincense and sage can also promote activism, along with mediation.
*Avoid fluoride at all costs.
With our reality grid raising planetary frequency, people working out there issues, developing psychic abilities becomes easier in time. This is the Master Plan to awaken sleeping consciousness. Time to empower the spirit and connect with the Oneness in all creation !
