THE KEY TO THE UNIVERSE WEDGED INSIDE YOUR BRAIN
Squint your eyes a little, and check out this raisin-sized gland inside your brain: Would you believe me if I told you that this tiny, unassuming organ…
May be the gateway to your highest potential as a being of infinite power? As you may have already deduced, it’s not a misplaced honey roasted peanut: it’s your pineal gland.
The famed psychic Edgar Cayce once said, “Keep the pineal gland operating and you won’t grow old – you will always be young.” Why? The truth may surprise you.
The pineal gland is an endocrine gland located at the very center of your cranium. On a physiological level, it is activated by light, and works with your hypothalamus gland to regulate your hunger, thirst, sex drive and biological clock (which explains Mr. Cayce’s quote).
The pineal gland also regulates some of your body’s most important chemicals… including the “happy chemical” serotonin and the free radical-busting antioxidant melatonin (which also regulates your sleep patterns).
It’s clear that this organ plays a crucial role in your physiological well being… but where it gets even more fascinating is the role it plays in your spiritual evolution!
The problem is this: our modern lifestyles… consumption of spirit-crushing chemicals… and a lack of proper education… has left our pineal glands atrophied, dormant, calcified and oppressed to the point of uselessness.
Here are some fascinating facts about this Little-Gland-That-Could:
* The pineal gland is formed at 49 days within the human embryo: the same time that Tibetans believe it takes for a soul to reincarnate. And the same amount of days that the human embryo becomes either male or female. Hmmm…
* In the ancient Vedic energy system of the chakras, the pineal gland is referred to as the ‘Ajna’ or ‘3rd Eye’ chakra. 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.”
* Studies show your pineal gland secretes a substance called Dimethyltriptamine (DMT), which you may be familiar with as a hallucinatory substance found in the South American shamanic brew called Ayahuasca. The interesting thing about DMT is that it causes experiences which can take you well beyond common states of awareness. This is perhaps why the pineal gland is known in many cultures as the ‘Seat of the Soul’, the ‘Gateway to the Universe’, the ‘Mind’s Eye’ and the ‘Doorway to Higher Realms’.
* Your pineal gland is also important to your physical and mental health, and its wellbeing has been linked to memory, creativity, intuition and critical thinking skills. It is also sensitive to light and plays an important role in your sleep and waking cycles. When light strikes the retina of your eyes, it travels through a tiny nerve system and into the gland. When the light goes 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.
