How Activating the Pineal Gland Can Improve Everyday Life
Many hear the words, “third eye,” and write it off as some hocus pocus mumbo jumbo. But it’s not. Technically known as the pineal gland, this is a vital organ that’s a part of the endocrine system. The pineal gland serves many important functions throughout the body and has a profound impact on your consciousness.
Let’s take a look at the many functions of the pineal gland and how to activate your third eye to improve your everyday life.
It Regulates Your Sleep
Due to its location situated between the two eyes and deep into the center of the brain, the pineal gland earned the moniker “the third eye.” Being in the center of the all the action, one of the pineal gland’s primary responsibilities is to regulate your circadian rhythm.
The circadian rhythm is your biological clock. As the night draws closer, your pineal gland begins to secrete melatonin into the system. This is the hormone responsible for regulating your sleep cycle.
When the sun begins to rise, the change of light triggers your pineal gland that the day is beginning. This is why we wake up. As we get into regular sleeping habits, the pineal gland should work like clockwork. Two hours before bed, you get tired. A couple hours before you get up to start your day, your REM cycle should be coming to an end.
However, everyday life has started to toy with our pineal gland, causing more cases of sleep disorders than ever before in history. That is because we are playing far too many tricks on our third eye.
- Blocking the sun with our sunglasses makes our body think sleeptime is approaching
- Using LED lights on our phones and TVs before bed time makes our body think it’s almost time to wake up
- Working in an office without windows causing us to get drowsy
It Boosts Our Mood
For adequate hormone production, our bodies need to be in a state of homeostasis. When melatonin is not being produced, cortisol, our stress hormone, takes over.
Cortisol causes our body to go into “fight-or-flight mode.” That’s what makes us dread going to bed when we know that we are going to have bouts of insomnia. This hormone is also what causes our tossing and turning and exasperated sighs all night long.
Our body needs sleep. During our sleep cycle, cells repair themselves, the immune system rebuilds, and hormones balance out. After a good night’s rest, we feel rejuvenated, happier, and ready to take on the world.
It Promotes Deeper Consciousness
The pineal gland earned its moniker the “third eye” for its location within the endocrine system. However, there’s more to that than meets…the eye.
What makes the pineal gland such a powerful organ is that it produces dimethyltryptamine, better known as DMT. DMT is a natural psychedelic.
Dubbed the “spirit molecule,” DMT allows for stronger spiritual insight within one’s self. In turn, they feel happier and more complete, in touch with the earth, and less tied to materialistic things.
With DMT in the system, some claim to develop psychic abilities. Others have noted that they took part in lucid dreaming, astral projection, and manifestation of thoughts. Lastly, this awakening has also been given credit to sparking creativity and imagination in many.
How to Activate the Pineal Gland
Just as light plays a trick on the pineal gland, there is one other culprit that has hindered our body from using this organ to its fullest potential. We’re talking about fluoride.
In excessive doses, fluoride has the ability to calcify the pineal gland, causing it to harden like a prune. If you want to get the most out of the pineal gland, you need to activate it. Like working out a muscle, this is a process that takes time.
Ways to activate your pineal gland include:
- Concentrating on the Third Eye
- Rubbing Hands Together and Placing on Third Eye
There are many reasons why you should activate your pineal gland. While results won’t happen overnight, if you start the process today you will find yourself sleeping better, happier, and more connected spiritually.
