17 Ways to Activate the Pineal Gland For Enlightenment
Why should you care about your pineal gland?
For centuries, this gland has been thought of by spiritual masters as the “seat of the soul” — a phrase made popular by Descartes (1662 AD). Others refer to it as the “seat of enlightenment.
Your pineal gland produces a number of chemicals and hormones that cause euphoria, restfulness, balanced emotions, happiness and serenity just to name a few.
- Greater Awareness
- Waking Up
- Psychic/Seeing Abilities
- Lucid Dreaming
- Astral Projection
- Enlivened Creativity
- Enhanced Manifestation Powers
- Increased Intuitive Power
1. Get rid of fluoride, chlorine, and bromide
All of these come into your body through the water you drink and bathe in. Get a water purification system. Drink only de-chlorinated and de-fluorinated water.
To remove fluoride you can use Tamarind paste. Recent studies show that tamarind is highly effective in removing body fluoride through excretion of urine, and even in mobilizing deposited fluoride from bone.
2. Stop using sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to numb yourself
All of these substances create more acidity in the body. These have been robbed of vital nutrients. To activate the pineal gland you want foods that have been charged with sunlight and chlorophyl like dark leafy greens, spirulina, wheatgrass, and blue-green algae.
3. Reduce refined starches
Processed starches cause the body to become acidic and toxic which causes more calcification of the pineal gland. You can choose healthier options like organic brown rice or quinoa as more alkalizing options.
4. Cut down on stress
When you are stressed the adrenal glands create Cortisol and Adrenaline, as well as other hormones. This can interfere with melatonin and serotonin, the sister hormones to DMT, which is the magic elixir of awakening.
5. Stop Smoking
Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins.
These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT.
6. Reduce acidic beverages
Stop consuming all soda, and energy drinks (also due to sugar and caffeine content).
7. Reduce meat and dairy
Heavier meats like beef and pork are highly acidic. The pineal gland does not thrive in an acidic system. It must be alkaline and decalcified.
8. Listen to Binaural Beats
9. Use Essential Oils
These can be diffused or added to oil to rub on the body. Some of the oils that stimulate the pineal gland are Lavender, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Pine, & Parsley.
These oils can help with astral projection, lucid dreaming, meditation and expanded spiritual awareness.
10. Eat Activating Foods
Raw cacao, goji berries, garlic, lemons in water, coconut oil, raw honey, seaweed and cilantro help in decalcifying the pineal gland and activating the 3rd Eye.
11. Consume neem extract
Neem is one of India’s super herbs. It has been used for thousands of years and purifies almost every system of the body.
12. Meditation & Chanting
Meditation is the main reason I became aware of pineal activation. I was practicing techniques that focused on the center of the skull and forehead.
Through the practice, I started noticing sensations and powerful visions.
There are many types of meditation for 3rd eye activation but a simple one is just breathing into the 3rd eye area, in the center of your forehead.
Another one is using the word “love.” You can start the meditation by closing your eyes and just thinking the word “love.”
Then, you can move into a chant.
Gently bite the tip of your tongue. Vibrate the word “love” through your teeth as you purse your lips. You can use this same technique with the sound “Th.”
Chanting causes the tetrahedron bone in the nose to resonate, which causes stimulation of the pineal gland.
13. Go into a Theta State
Fasting helps the body heal and detoxify. In addition the pineal gland secretes melatonin during fasting.
The only other time it produces melatonin is in sleep and relaxation such as deep meditation.
Therefore, fasting can reset our pineal gland to produce regularly which helps our natural sleep rhythms and hormone levels.
15. Practice Yoga
Inversion Poses help because they increase blood flow to the pineal gland when you are upside down.
16. Drink Ayahuasca
The ayahuasca plant medicine reactivates our DNA and wakes up the pineal gland.
After experiencing 8 Ayahuasca ceremonies, I have had more intuitive guidance, visions, clarity, and sensation in the 3rd eye and crown areas.
If there was ever a doubt about Ayahuasca activating the pineal gland, all doubt is eradicated. I have to admit, before Aya I underestimated the benefits of awakening the 3rd eye. Now, it is at the top of my list of priorities.
Even just the few experiences I’ve had, have blown my mind. I cannot wait for further activation and opening!
17. Sun Gazing
Start gazing at the sun within first hour after sunrise or last hour before sunset.
You will want to start with 10 seconds of looking at the center of the sun with your bare feet on the earth. Add 10 seconds each day for 0-3 months to start.
