MIND BODY MEDICINE – YOUR THIRD EYE – http://www.bmindful.co.uk/contact/

“We’ve discussed the pineal gland a little before, but we’d like to get into a little more depth, especially as our conscious-minded friends make the wise decision to take good care of what is known as the Third Eye.

Straight from Wikipedia, the biological aspect of the pineal glanced finest as “a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that effects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. It’s 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. ” Also on Wikipedia, it notes that it is also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis, conarium or the Third Eye, with the latter being the aspect most spiritually-minded people focus on. This Third Eye activates when exposed to light, and has a number of biological functions in controlling the 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 ageing process. All in all a very important gland.

For a long time, the biological role of the pineal gland remained unknown, but mystical traditions and esoteric schools long held this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. In this spiritual aspect, it’s is a necessary step to awaken the Third Eye, which will feel like a pressure at the base of the brain. It is important because activating it is to raise one’s frequency and move into higher consciousness – all of which is a conscious experience perceived through the Eye of Time or Third Eye. 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. Awakening to the Third Eye acts as a “stargate”. So how do you activate it? Meditation, visualisation yoga and all forms of ‘out-of-body’ travel open the Third Eye and is held to allow a person to ‘see’ things that are beyond the physical.

A list of the benefits and abilities the Third Eye brings include clarity, concentration, perspicuity, bliss, intuition, decisiveness and insight, as well as:

Vivid/lucid dreaming
More affective astral projection
Better sleep quality
Enhanced imagination

Enabling Aura viewing
Seeing energy
Seeing beings
Seeing with eyes closed
Clearing channels (physically, emotionally & spiritually)
To feel energy more efficiently (incl. Guna)

However, if a person is not taking care of their Third Eye, all of this is cut off from them. Calcification of the pineal gland will definitely occur without regular detox. Most people’s pineal glands are heavily calcified by the time they are 17 years old, so much so that they show 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. This process occurs because of toxins in every day products, like fluoride (found in public water systems and toothpaste), hormones and additives (found in processed foods), sugars and artificial sweeteners (found pretty much everywhere). There is some speculation that cell phones are also part of the problem, thanks to high concentrations of radiation. And a closed Third Eye is no joke. In the Hindu tradition, it is known as the “Anja Chakra”, and is credited with bringing confusion, uncertainty, cynicism, pessimism, jealousy, envy and one-sidedness to a person’s life.

The good news is that there is something you can do about it. Just because your pineal gland is calcified doesn’t mean that the door cannot be reopened. With continual care, you will free your pineal gland in no time. Here are eight things to keep in mind:

Avoid Fluoride: Pay close attention to the water in your life. Tap water – cooking with tap water and fluoridated toothpastes are all obvious no-nos. However, other bad influences include non-organic fruits and vegetables, red meat and any fizzy soft drinks or artificial drinks because they are produced with impure water. It doesn’t just apply to what you ingest, either! Taking showers without a filter can be detrimental, as well. Going cold turkey from all these things can be tough, so you can begin with any of these things and work your way up.
Try a Pineal Gland Detoxifier and/or Stimulant: Hydrilla verticillata, chlorella spirulina, blue-green algae, iodine, zeolite, ginseng, borax, D3, bentonite clay, chlorophyll and blue skate liver oil are all ingredients that will help your pineal gland begin to purify once again.
Add These to Your Diet: Raw cacao, goji berries, garlic, cilantro, citric acid (i.e., lots of lemons consumed regularly with water), watermelon, bananas, honey, coconut oil, hemp seeds, seaweed and none juice are fuel for your Third Eye as they have natural detoxifying and body nourishing properties. Raw apple cider vinegar is also a key food as it is filled with malice acid (best raw).
Start Using Essential Oils: Many can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and facilitate States of spiritual awareness, including meditation and astral projection. Good choices include lavender, sandalwood, frankincense, parsley, data a, pine, pink lotus, and mugwort (care as excessive use is a powerful neurotoxin if inhaled directly). Essential oils can be inhaled directly, burned in a diffuser or nebuliser, and added to bath water.
Try Sungazing: The sun is a powerful ally for you to have. Start gazing at the sun for the first 15 minutes of sunrise to boost your pineal gland.
Meditate and Chant and Sing Regularly: Chanting/singing causes the tetrahedron bone in the nose to resonate, which causes stimulation of the pineal gland. When it is stimulated, it secretes more of the beneficial hormones that regulate your body and can even keep you looking younger. The sound “OM” resonates with the Fourth Chakra, known as the Heart Centre, the seat of Unconditional Love. Chanting OM opens you up and allows for greater awareness – to Universal and Cosmic awareness. You can chant up to 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or however long you desire to.
Collect Crystals and thee are some specific ones that target the pineal gland.
Massage and Magnets are also helpful. Magnets attached to the area around the Thirds Eye for a few hours throughout the day help to both stimulate and decal city it. Magnets cause the body to become alkaline, especially the part of the body where the magnet is attached. It is advised to use it only during waking hours as the combined effect of the magnet and sunlight work well together – the sunlight magnifying the effect.

As with most solutions regarding people’s bodies, there is no “one size fits all” fix. You can try all of these things or a mixture. Just be sure to be dedicated and committed to doing these things regularly, or you will likely not see any results that could change your life. Be intentional, and the things you will see will far out-reward any work you put in.
