What is the Pineal Gland and how does it activate our third eye awareness?

What is the Pineal Gland, you might wonder? The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebra, epiphysis, conarium or the third eye) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.Image

The pineal gland is 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.

Activation of the third eye is something that carries into all aspects of life, namely,

1. Enhanced mental imaging
2. Clearer and more accurate perception of your life’s purpose
3. Enabling or enhancing one’s ability to see what is known as the “awareness matrix/grid”
4. Easier discernment of a person’s true intention
5. Easier Astral Projection

While the physiological function of the pineal gland has been unknown until recent times, mystical traditions have long known this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. Many have said that awakening the third eye acts as a “stargate”. The pineal gland is seen as a gateway that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.


Calcification of the Pineal Gland:

Most people’s pineal glands are heavily calcified by the time they are 17 years old, so much so that they show up as a lump of calcium during an MRI. Calcification is the build up of calcium phosphate crystals in various parts of the body. The pineal gland begins to calcify due to the harmful effects of artificial substances such as flouride chemicals found in public water systems and toothpaste, hormones and additives put into processed foods and sugars and artificial sweeteners dumped into soft drinks. Cell phones are also being pinpointed as being harmful to the pineal gland due to high concentrations of radiation.

How to Decalcify your Pineal Gland:

The idea of having a calcified pineal gland can be likened to a door being glued shut. With constant pushing, the door will eventually break open. The best ways to decalcify your third eye are:

1. Avoid all things fluoride: Tap water, cooking with tap water, fluoridated toothpaste, inorganic fruits and vegetables, showers without filter, red meat, and any sodas and artificial food and drinks. It is difficult to stick to only organic fruits and vegetables, but it is important to start where you are and begin to make those changes where it is possible.

2. Pineal gland detoxifiers and stimulants: Hydrilla Verticillata, Chlorella, Spirulina, blue-green algae, Iodine, Zeolite, ginseng, borax, D3, Bentonite clay, chlorophyll, blue skate liver oil.

3. Foods: Raw cacao, goji berries, cilantro, watermelon, bananas, Honey, Coconut Oil, hemp seeds, seaweed, and noni juice.

4. Essentials Oils can be used to help stimulate the Pineal Gland and facilitate states of higher awareness including meditation, astral projection, etc. Good essential oils for Pineal Gland purposes include: Lavender, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Parsley, Davana, Pine, Pink Lotus, and Mugwort (excess use of Mugwort has a neurotoxin effect if inhaled directly, so be careful!). Essential oils can be smelled, burned in a diffuser or nebulizer, and added to bath water.

5. Citric acid: Lots of lemons work.

6. Garlic: Take about half a bulb a day or more for a while, if you crush it and soak in raw apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice, it will deodorize it. You can use the leftover vinegar or lemon juice on a salad.

7. Raw apple cider vinegar: Contains malice acid. Take a lot of it. Make sure it’s raw, as that is very important.

8. Sungazing: Gazing at the sun during the first 15 minutes of sunrise and last 15 minutes of sunset will do wonders for your pineal gland.

9. Regular Meditation and Chanting: Chanting causes the tetrahedron bone in the nose to resonate and this resonance causes the Pineal Gland to be stimulated and when it is stimulated it secretes more beneficial hormones, and remember: these beneficial hormones keep your appearance youthful. The sound “OM” resonates with the Fourth Chakra, known as the Heart Center. Chanting OM opens you up to a more universal and united awareness. You can chant 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or however long you desire to.

10. Crystals that benefit the Pineal Gland include: Amethyst (wand), Laser Quartz (wand), Moonstone, Pietersite, Purple Sapphire, Purple Violet Tourmaline, Rhodonite, Rose Aura, and Sodalite. However, any indigo, violet, or dark purple gemstone or crystal can be used to stimulate the Pineal Gland and open/balance/align the 6th and 7th Chakras. Placed directly on the 3rd eye or brow chakra for 15-30 minutes a day or every other day will help to open/balance/align the 3rd Eye (Brow) chakra. The best exercise for Pineal Gland stimulation and health is to take an amethyst obelisk crystal or an amethyst wand, point it at the 3rd eye (point of the wand should touch your skin) and look up directly at the Sun with your eyes closed. Do this everyday or whenever you feel like it for about 5-10 minutes. You can also use the Laser Quartz (wand) as well. Quartz crystal benefits every single chakra.

Give your digestive system a much needed break by Fasting!

There is no scientific evidence that fasting detoxes the body. The liver is a natural detox center; the lungs, the colon, the kidneys, the lymph glands and the skin get rid of toxins inside of our bodies. But the body is unable to unable to rid itself of toxins when we eat a diet low in nutrients and as a result, there is a buildup of waste products in the cells — AGE, advanced glycation end products — that build up in cellular tissues and lead to atherosclerosis, aging, diabetes, nerve damage and the deterioration of organs.


Along with improving your overall diet, fasting is one solution to that buildup of AGE. Fasting allows the body to most effectively remove these waste products. Our bodies are designed to fast; we do it every night when we go to bed. So fasting once a week might be a good idea to enable better functioning of your inner organs. How does fasting remove toxins from the body? When you go without eating for more than a day or two, the body enters into ketosis. Ketosis occurs when the body runs out of carbohydrates to burn for energy, so it burns fat. The fat is where the body stores many of the toxins it absorbs from the environment.

The art of fasting is an ancient tradition practiced for thousands of years for curing illness of all kinds, rejuvenation, clarity and decision making, cleansing and strengthening. Have you noticed that when you’re sick, your appetite diminishes? Similarly, when animals are ill, they lie down and often don’t eat or drink. Energy goes towards healing our bodies instead of digesting food. Fasting also allows for the body’s enzyme system to focus on detoxifying and breaking down toxins in the body quickly and efficiently without the job of heavy food digestion. During fasts, toxins are being circulated in the body in order for our organs to de-arm them. Therefore, it’s not always wise to detoxify quickly because a flood of toxins being released at once can cause serious distress to the body that can do more harm than good. Fasting has been used for religious and spiritual purification for centuries. Nearly every religious text you can name, from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible to the Quran and the Upanishads, calls upon followers to fast periodically as a rite of spiritual purification, penitence, or preparation for union with God.

Fasting is also required to get accurate readings for certain medical tests. Short-term fasting before tests for cholesterol and blood sugar levels, for example, helps achieve a more accurate baseline count. Fasting advocates also claim that the practice can effectively treat serious health conditions, from arthritis and colitis to heart disease and depression.

Our digestive system is very busy and hard-working, which requires high amounts of energy; in fact, the digestive system can even drain energy needed for healing, repair and general maintenance of the body. Therefore, it makes sense to give it a vacation once in a while. If you’ve never fasted before, and would like to experience a fast, have no fear. Fasting should be gentle and nurturing and can range from a one day to as long as a week. More rigorous fasts, such as a water-only fast, should only be undertaken by those experienced in fasting and detoxification.

A gentle fast is great way to start. And what’s a day to abstain from food? Try it and see how your body reacts and feels to this little change in your lifestyle pattern. Fasting is a message to your body that you’re embarking on a new beginning, flushing out the old and bringing in the new. Fasting is the perfect way to introduce new healthy habits and foods into your life. It can give you that jump-start, boost clarity, and clear your body toward shifting things in a positive direction.
