The mystery of the Pineal gland remains even to this day. It is this not-so-well studied gland right in the center of our brain. Only recently has science found some interesting things about it. If we look at the Fibonacci sequence, the gland actually fits right into the center at the start of the sequence and the rest of our brain follows the shape as well. This is just to mention one interesting thing, however there is much more to this gland. Dysfunctions in the Pineal gland can lead to many of the common psychiatric and biological illnesses such as depression, psychosis, and insomnia just to name a few. Let’s take a look at how it functions biologically and how its function plays a key role in our mood and sleep-wake cycle.
In the morning our brains are typically in Beta wave state and the Pineal gland releases serotonin. Serotonin is a neurohormone that causes our wakefulness and balanced mood (less anxiety and depression). At night time our Pineal gland secretes melatonin in theta wave frequency (deep sleep).
Serotonin and melatonin are derived from the neuropeptide 5HTP. It is actually possible to purchase 5HTP as a supplement. Taking this can help to elevate mood balance and aid in the production of serotonin and melatonin.
Melatonin as a powerful neurohormone. It has been scientifically proven to promote DNA healing and improved carbohydrate metabolism. It is essential for our body to regenerate. When we are under stress we produce less melatonin and therefore can have sleep troubles.
How can we work with our Pineal gland so that it functions properly? How can we self heal from many of the common illnesses mentioned above?
Firstly, we have to understand that our bodies emit an electromagnetic frequency. The higher in the body we go the higher the frequency. We exhibit a torrus field. This term refers to the electromagnetic frequency flowing around our body in the shape of a torrus. But what does this have to do with the Pineal? Well the brain functions with electromagnetic impulses all the time. The question is how can we alter this electromagnetic communication and change it so that it becomes balanced and that our torrus field flows around the body coherently? The answer is meditation. A specific type of meditation called transcendental. It begins with breathing in and contracting your abdominal muscles. With every breath we have to contract the muscles and push the air up toward the top of our head. We focus on this until the breath of life (our primary life force energy becomes potent enough to t activate the crystals that cover the pineal gland.). That's right, crystals cover the Pineal gland, calcite crystals stacked on top of each other in fact. They actually cause a piezoelectric effect when the CSF is pushed toward the Pineal gland as we focus on the breath. (The piezoelectric effect is the creation of a charge when the stress is applied in the CSF around the Pineal.)
This probably sounds extremely complicated and obscured to think that we have the power to heal our brain. However if you think about it, we are more conditioned to think about ways to create illness in our bodies than to create healing. How many of us have negative thoughts? How many of us have feelings of hopelessness when we hear the news from our doctor about a diagnosis. How many of us resolve to medication thinking that is the only thing that they can depend on to manage symptoms. Just as easy as it is to have destructive or incoherent thoughts, it is also just as possible to have the opposite. To create a resource for ourselves in our mental body that can help initiate the healing process. The cause and effect principle applies the same way in both ways of thinking. Either you choose the path of healing or the path of suffering. It is a CHOICE, you are not condemned to illness and left hopeless like many of us think they are.
Take the time to sit in lotus position 30 minutes per day for the next 5 days. Allow yourself to focus your breath traveling up to the center of your head in the area of the Pineal gland and contract the abdominal muscles with each breath. Accept with gratitude the outcome you are looking for. The ultimate goal is to reach gamma wave frequency. This is when you reach your super-consciousnesses and healing can happen very quickly. I am not claiming a cure, but simply stating a technique that can help to improve symptoms and create a new biology within the brain overcoming your suffering and imbalance.
