Pineal Gland

The Pineal Gland is a tiny cone-shaped organ that sits on the roof of the 3rd ventricle of the brain, directly behind the top of the nose (3rd eye chakra), and floats in a small lake of cerebrospinal fluid.

It is the body's biological clock. It has been called a “window of the brain” because, as with all mid-line structures bordering the 3rd and 4th ventricles of the brain, it doesn't have a blood-brain barrier. Instead it relies on a constant supply of blood via, considering its miniscule size, a particularly rich vascular network.

It was considered for many years to be as redundant as our appendix* but this theory is brought sharply into question because, in our body's infinite wisdom, the pineal gland has been supplied with the best blood, oxygen and nutrient mix available other than that received by our kidneys! (*The appendix is also now being acknowledged for specific functions.

The pineal gland acts as a receiving mechanism. It is capable of monitoring electro-magnetic fields and helping align bodies in spatial terms.

With its central hormone, melatonin, the pineal regulates sleep/ wake cycles, regulates the aging process, and also appears to act as a “mistress gland” orchestrating the body's entire endocrine system. Thus, energetically speaking, it governs the chakra system. It is also responsible for permitting the ability to attain shamanic states, visions, kundalini awakening, et cetera.

The pineal gland is unique in that it sits alone in the brain while all other parts are paired. It is the first gland to be formed in the fetus and is distinguishable at 3 weeks. When individual life force enters the fetal body at 7 weeks, the moment in which we become truly human, it passes through the pineal and triggers the first primordial flood of DMT (N-dimethyltryptamine).

Later, at birth, the pineal releases more DMT. DMT is also capable of mediating pivotal experiences of deep meditation, shamanic states of consciousness, psychoses, spiritual emergence, psychoses, and near death experiences.

Starting in adolescence, the pineal gland begins to harden with calcified tissue; these calcified deposits, between 3-5 mm are called “brain sand.” The asymmetrical crystals in the pineal gland that are ‘piezo-electric' - that is, they send out electronic voltage creating EM waves.

Whenever a person is exposed to an EMF (electro-magnetic field) such as that of the Earth or Sun, the gland vibrates, sending out EM signals to the rest of the body.

When the pineal gland is stimulated geo-magnetically it produces alkaloids similar to plant psychedelics. Any strong change in the earth's EMF will produce Earth/ land receptive and, a rush of psychedelics in the body enabling us to be more psychically active in shamanic states.

The pineal gland is affected by coherent EM fields and it changes its hormone production when exposed to EM at low levels.

As the Earth and Sun have the greatest effect of any force on our physiology it makes sense that the cells of the body and brain align with it.

All life within the envelope of earth's vibrational influence attempts to match base-frequencies (entrainment) with that of the Earth. To this end, each of our cells is constantly shifting patterns of energy to achieve harmonic resonance with the reference signals of our Earth.

Our bodies are truly amazing and are intimately co-dependent with these harmonics!

We are made up of multiple trillions of molecules, each vibrating with its own intelligence and interlinked as is the universe. We are a microcosm of and reflect the whole.

A picture may be emerging as to how we reach shamanic states through the wisdom of the body as it in tune with Earth.

Beginning a shamanic journey makes the pulse rate increase while the blood pressure drops. This is like what happens when the body is preparing to die. As the life-force departs the body back through the pineal gland, another flood of DMT is released.

For this reason, the initial states of a shamanic experience would also trigger a release of DMT.

The pineal gland is a mysterious and wonderful tiny organ that we couldn’t really live without and that just happens to be able to add spiritual richness to life.
