The Pineal gland is a gland of the Endocrine system of the body, which is a series of ductless glands that produce a variety of hormones that are directly released in the bloodstream that produce emotional states and govern the regulatory aspects of maintaining all major systems of the body involved in homeostasis. Hormones work in a unified manner to produce, regulate and maintain the “state” of the mind-body system. The mind produces the electrical charges that stimulate and operate the endocrine system through the energetic matrix within the body often referred to as the chakra and meridian system. A chakra is located in the same region as endocrine glands as well as the major organs of the body and the central nervous system, all of which act as a dynamic network for energy as consciousness to stimulate chemical and biological process that operate the body using the mind.
The Pineal gland, which is located in the center of the brain as a part of what we call the “limbic brain” (emotional), does not originate in the brain, but rather migrates there after first forming in the roof of the mouth of the fetus. Because of this, the Pineal is not made of brain cells, and is not protected by the blood-brain barrier, and is affected by various toxins carried in the blood. The Pineal is a pea-sized hollow organ shaped like a pinecone that’s filled with fluids that has piezoelectric crystals floating in the internal fluid. These piezoelectric crystals carry an accumulated electrical charge that’s activated when pressured (contained in fluid). These crystals are hexagonal (6 sided) and are similar to the crystals found in the inner ear, that expand and contract in the presence of electromagnetic fields. Piezoelectric crystals can be used to “tune into” radio stations without any electricity. The electromagnetic fields that surround us are constantly interacting with these crystals within our body, producing mental and emotional affects.
The Pineal, which regulates light and governs various “cycles and rhythms” of the body, also effects our mood, mental and emotional state, produces melatonin, the precursor to serotonin, which regulates sleep and dream cycles of the body. The pineal also produces a hormone called DMT, which releases light through piezoelectric luminescence that is thought to be a hallucinogenic and responsible for what they call the “death experience”. The Pineal is thought to be where the soul enters and leaves the body at birth and death. In the more practical sense, we can realize that it’s definitely the mechanism by which we dream, receive inner visions, daydream, imagine ideas as concepts, and experience hat we call phosphene flares as the “dancing lights” commonly associated with various forms of meditation and trance states. It’s what forms any type of “inner vision” as imagery or ideas as knowledge that come to us through our imagination. The Pineal is our connection to the ethereal world where images exist in etheric, holographic like images.
The Pineal has been referred to by many names throughout history and in every spiritual culture around the world as a significance feature of our physical anatomy necessary for spiritual transformation. It’s also referred to as the 3rd-eye (pyramid), the 6th chakra (hexagram structure), the Eye-of Horus, The Philosopher’s Stone, The Light Eye, The Seat of the Soul, the Challis of the Holy Grail, the Cosmic Egg, the Star of David, the Eye of Wisdom, and the “Lost Key” of Free Masons. This gland is an actual tuning device that allows us to “receive” information as knowledge from the spiritual realm of pure intelligence. This information comes to us fluently through the study of the science of numbers which start a systematic unfolding of visual imagery that “reveals” knowledge to us, and all we have to do is observe it. Light images are reflected on the surface of the Pineal as knowledge being transmitted through the frequency of the Pineal, represented by the color spectrum as indigo, or more accurately ultramarine blue. When we electrically charge the Pineal by drawing up the Life-Force of the body located in the lower regions of the spine known as the Kundalini or serpent energy that activates all the lower-emotional energy centers of the body, amplifying the intensity, and strong emotions are added to visual thoughts as conceptual ideas formed in the imagination (mind’s eye), we have the basis for spiritual knowledge to manifest as material reality.
The Pineal is thought to secret a form of resin (risen), similar to tree sap as the life-essence of the tree (of Knowledge) known as DMT, which has also been referred to as the “Golden Nectar” of immortality. DMT, is what allows us to “see” the imagery of the spiritual realm that comes into our mind as a form of holographic imagery of pure and radiant colors that form lucid and surreal internal realities as single-composite imagery. The internal realm, being of the opposite nature of the external, doesn’t form “landscape like” imagery of multiple images put together to form a logical scene of some sort, but rather come as singular imagery that have a multitude of features that are very unlike what we see in the normal sense.
A single image for example can have human-facial features combined with crystalline structures, plant and mineral features, and animal features all combined to form a single image that portrays an idea. These images are in vibrant prismatic and pure colors as the frequencies that create the structured pattern of the image. These images can move through an evolutionary process of starting out pulsating-spiraling light-forms, which then start forming actual prismatic structures, and recognizable forms, that then burst into an intense release of light or a form of vivid lucid dreaming. This is why DMT is referred to as a hallucinogen, and is what actually formed the basis for LSD.
These internal images, which can be also thought of as the original universal language of symbolic imagery, are the result of the frequencies we “absorb” into our being, and are of the same frequency as we are. Because of this, internal images are of a very personal nature unlike external ones that are produced by deflected light. With these internal images, the color is very important as it gives direct knowledge of the frequency being transmitted. This same method of transmission and reception is how ideas come to us as inspired insights of various sorts, or creative ideas that “pop into” our mind out of nowhere. The imagination is the faculty of the mind used for transmission of information as ideas from the purely energetic and vibratory realm of spirit, into the astral realm of images formed out of light in the mind’s eye, that become the blueprint for creating a reality out of the idea. This is how all great inventions came about. They were “received” in their whole form as an idea, that intuitively “came to them” as a realization, or what some call a “direct experience”.
The Pineal shares many of the same properties as the retina of the eye, and both detect and regulate light. The retina of the eye works with external light, and the Pineal works with internal light that received as more of a transmission of vibratory information. The image received by the Pineal is reflected on the outer membrane of the Pineal, which is “looked through” and forms a kind of translucent image, similar to reflection on glass, which is often superimposed over the outer reality as imagining an idea, or replaying a memory, as in daydreaming. This same affect of looking through a translucent lens forms an analogy to our ‘perceptual lens’, which is how we reshape the outer light (imagery) to be of the same structure as the ‘inner image’, not as an exact replica, but more as an analogous theme that recomposes outer ideas through a selection process that only uses certain elements of a whole to form a new idea out of them. When we close our eyes, as in meditating or relaxing, and shut out the outer light, then only the internal image exists, and often becomes much more vivid and clear.
The Pineal, as the imagination, is stimulated and developed through extended periods of concentration and contemplation. This is most naturally engaged in through creative activities or studying. When we get involved in creativity of some sort, we submerge ourselves into the experience of creating as a deep form of concentration where we blend into and become one with whatever we’re creating. In this way, we loose all sense of ourselves as separate and independent of our creation and it activates a kind of “flow of information” that we enter into and participate in. We start the process by engaging in the activity itself by contemplating an idea, that then begins taking on a life of its own and begins evolving inside of us and we enter into a stream of associated thoughts where one spontaneously leads to another and we receive knowledge through the internal experience of it unfolding inside of us as a kind of download. All we have to do is watch and observe the images as they unfold. When our concentration is broke, we lose our train of thought, and disconnect from the flow of ideas, often, not able to get it back.
The idea that “God speaks to us in numbers” (mathematics) comes from the very interesting feature that when we study numbers as sacred geometry or philosophical mathematics, where shapes represents laws as form that performs distinct operations that are represented by numbers that demonstrate relationships, comes through the natural fact that when meditating or deeply concentrating on numbers and the laws they represent, where we start off thinking in terms of what we know about the number and shape, it starts a flow of energy as a chain of association that continues unfolding in our mind “showing us” aspects of it that we didn’t know before. We actually “receive” information as knowledge through experiencing it, which is why they call it intuitive wisdom. This is learning from experience which integrates it into our paradigm as the structure of our mind, which systematically upgrades it by incorporating the new information. Spiritual knowledge (as the sciences) doesn’t have to be sought out and obtained from outside means, but can be “tuned into” and received through internal means.
This mysterious and beautiful feature of the Pineal gland as the faculty of the imagination used as a tuning and receiving device for obtaining spiritual knowledge through meditative contemplation is what makes it the prime objective or key element of all the Mysteries and world-wide spiritual traditions. By learning how to activate and use this feature of our own mind-body system we have a direct connection to God as the Universal Mind of pure consciousness that exists within the material realm as vibratory frequencies that can be tuned into like a radio station and plug ourselves in to a direct source of primordial intelligence responsible for constructing all of life in the cosmos as we know it. This is our link to our true immortality as our true identity. Through meditative practices intended to penetrate and absorb knowledge through a practical understanding of it, we can utilize that knowledge in our everyday life in order to self-create. By obtaining it through the experience of it, it becomes infused in our mind as a form of virtual memory that we can readily access and recall at will.
There is however, one fairly large problem that we’re facing today in regards to the Pineal gland, and that is, that because it’s not protected by the blood-brain barrier, it’s subject to whatever chemicals are in our blood stream. This is one of the reasons why purifying your body as the means of purifying your blood, is so important in all spiritual traditions. The main jest of blood chemistry normally addressed is those of various emotional states, which directly alter our blood chemistry through hormonal saturation, and alter our state of mind as a direct correspondence to our emotional state which sets our “frequency” to that emotion. It’s easy to see that whatever emotion we’re experiencing determines what we dwell on and what type of thoughts or memories we run almost obsessively through our imagination as the equivalent (reality) of our emotional state. Our emotions are the most natural way we tune ourselves to frequencies and use our concentration power to dwell intensely in those states by imagining.
Nowadays however, we have many chemicals we’re ingesting, usually without direct awareness that are affecting our endocrine system, and especially our Pineal gland. One of the biggest culprits is fluoride, intentionally put in our drinking water and toothpaste that is known to “calcify” the Pineal. Calcification means it coats outer membrane (that reflects images) and the internal crystals with a bony, enamel like structure that prevents it from being able to operate properly. This is also partially responsible for affecting our mood, which is the basis out of which our whole life is created and experienced. Our mood is our vibratory frequency, and determines what thoughts we tune into and what emotions we experience on a regular basis. Fluoride, along with numerous other “neurotoxins” (toxic to the brain and nervous system) are acting to literally alter our biological system causing it to malfunction. This is also notable in the substantial increase in problems with concentration like ADD, and ADHD. Because concentration is required to stimulate, open, and operate the Pineal in a proficient manner, we’re being cut off from directly connecting to our spiritual source. It’s advisable to educate yourself on the chemicals in your food and your environment that are directly affecting your health in numerous ways, and altering your lifestyle to exclude them. Our physical health, mind and emotions are all connected and function in a unified manner. By altering one, we simultaneously alter the others. They go hand-in-hand.
