My first exposure to the pineal gland came as I was reading Drunvalo Melchizedek's Flower of Life books. Dang! The awareness those books brought me was both profound and confounding. So many new things to try and digest. Even as a psychic, he unveiled many concepts it took me months to understand and incorporate in my practice. One piece that has remained is his explanation of the pineal gland.
In ancient times, the pineal was the epi-center of spiritual pursuits. It is the liquid elixir of alchemists and the goal of rigorous spiritual training. Some even suggest it is this precise spot where God resides within us. Pretty powerful stuff! So what the heck is it and why should you even care?
The pineal gland is a pea sized gland that rests between the 2 brain hemispheres. As if by magic, it floats in the spinal fluid in the brain! This gland affects our ability to sleep and moods by secreting both serotonin and meltonin... for a more robust explanation check out Wiki so I can focus on what I'm good at-- it ain't the scientific "-)
It is actually an eye that reacts to light. An eye within the brain, between the hemispheres?!? Hot dog! this is where it gets interesting.
It is the EYE of the 6th eye chakra. In activating, or stimulating, this gland we can increase our psychic senses a thousandfold. One account even reports in the Mystery Schools of Heliopolis, the Pineal was referred to as the Chamber of God... a place within us where God dwells and if you know how to meet him, He can provide great lessons and teachings. Imagine what a direct conversation with God might provoke??
Calm down there tiger, while psychic development may not be your thing, let me tell you why it should be! As our world continues to evolve, change frequencies and stir stuff up, it is increasingly paramount that we be fully aware and awake. To see beyond the 3d will be a basic pre-requisite. The pineal gland is our key, my beloved!
Our modern world has little appreciation for the function of the pineal. Heck, you'd be heard pressed to find a doctor who prescribed flexing this gland for better health. But shit-- they should be! Go ahead, do a google search and see what you can find....
It is a place within us of stillness and bliss-- the most natural drug high can be found when you can reach this gland. Because it produces serotonin, the "feel good" hormone, the pineal gland can be your greatest asset in dealing with any stress that gets thrown in your path.
My experience has been pretty intense since I started listening to the Kenyon pineal attunement. I am a better psychic, calmer mama, and happier gal in general. I feel I have more inner resources to combat the freak outs that sometimes occur ... getting a boost in my psychic senses never hurts either!
|the arch above the star: the heiroglyph for pineal gland|
Sheshat is my most beloved mentor. Her crown actually carries the hieroglyph for the pineal gland! As the Mother of Ascension, working with her in the pineal is a "wham bam thank you ma'am" of potent energy! It was she who first kept her physical body intact and moved into the "other worlds." She is the great teacher of this pivotal lesson and a most worthy teacher as you begin activating your own pineal gland.
To evolve, spiritually and as a race, we must restore our full functions physically, mentally and psychically. Tom Kenyon offers a beautiful sound gift that activates this gland. Follow the link and click the box to promise you will not share his music...
This is just the tip of the iceberg! As I asked Sheshat for a more robust explanation, I was kept up til 3am writing and weaving. Keep those eyes open (the 3rd one too!) for the next installment.
