Uncover the Secrets of the Pineal Gland

Across cultures and throughout history, people have referred to that intangible space between the two physical eyes as the third eye. Through advancements in science and technology we now understand this to be a small pine-shaped gland in the vertebrate brain known as the pineal gland. Regardless of place, space, or time, many believe that the third eye is the window into our subconscious, that which connects us to the spiritual realms. Over time our pineal gland can get blocked, but there are methods for opening it back up and connecting to the universe on a deeper level. Discover the power of the pineal gland and what you can do to harness that which is already within you.

The Science Behind the Third Eye

Tucked in the groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join, the pineal gland functions to:

  • Release melatonin at night to regulate our dreaming state
  • Release serotonin during the day to regulate our moods
  • Work in harmony with the hypothalamus gland, which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and aging process
  • During our dreamstate it releases the neurochemical DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) known to help connect people to a higher state of consciousness

“The Third Eye is considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, and because of this, the pineal gland has been seen as a gateway that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.”

Decalcify and Activate Your Pineal Gland

How to Awaken and Open the Third Eye

Even though Western societies were unclear what the biological role of the pineal gland really was designed for, many mystical traditions and esoteric schools had long-standing beliefs that this middle area of the brain was the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. Today this area, when awakened, is recognized to increase clarity, concentration, imagination, and intuition. The third eye activates when exposed to light, and has a number of biological functions in controlling the bio-rhythms of the body, but light is not the only way to activate and keep this area cleared. Discover eight tips to find pineal gland clarity and openness in this article.
