The pineal gland is an incredibly important part of your brain.
For those, like myself, fascinated with the more obscure aspects of the brain, it is the “Third Eye”, “Seat of the Soul”, and the intuitive part of the brain.
It produces DMT (Dimethyltryptamine), a natural hallucinogen also called the “spirit molecule”, which allows vivid dreams, imagination, and the “spiritual” stuff.
But, while it has been debated whether decalcifying the pineal gland will help with astral projection and lucid dreaming, or whether it’s more a matter of practice and discipline, the fact is that the pineal gland does a lot more for you beyond your intuitive, spiritual powers.
So, whether or not you are pursuing the wonderful goal of learning to astral project, at will – or not…
…you should be concerned whether your pineal gland is in good working order.
It controls production of melatonin and seratonin, two very important hormones responsible for much of your health and well-being!
Melatonin is responsible for your sleep-patterns, while seratonin levels out your moods.
Simply put, without a healthy pineal gland, you can’t sleep as well as you are supposed to, and you get depressed.
That should be enough reason for anyone to take the health of their pineal gland seriously.
Fluoride – and why it’s your enemy…
One of the main causes of your pineal gland probably being next-to-useless is the widespread use of fluoride in the water supplies, as well as being present in many processed foods.
And it’s arguable that much of the rise in depression is due to how clogged-up our pineal glands have become!
It’s a fact, and a strange one, that although in most Westernized countries the standard of living has improved, that there are more opportunities, less poverty and starvation, and better education, depression has been on a steady rise since the ’40s, which was the time that fluoride started to be added to water.
And in 26 out of 27 tests, water fluoridation was linked to a drop in IQ by 7 points.
Because the pineal gland is largely water-filled, it’s a magnet for everything bad you consume, but especially (obviously!) water with unnaturally high levels of fluoride.
So fluoride isn’t good for your brain! Just avoid it. Bottled water is unfortunately more expensive, but worth it, if you don’t have access to a natural spring. (I don’t.)
DO check whether your bottled water has actually got added fluoride or not. It often can!
And by the way, unfortunately, Brita water filters and the like are NOT able to filter out fluoride. And distilled water is not a good idea to drink as it not only tastes awful, but leeches the minerals from your body.
Processed Foods – avoid as much as possible
Besides all of the other risks you already know about processed foods and the dubious practices in the food and agricultural industry? Do you really need to know more?
For the record, I’m including refined sugars, fats, and flours. And lay-off fizzy drinks for the same reason.
Detoxing Your Pineal Gland
So, you’re successfully avoiding the bad stuff.
Now you need to get the crap out of your system.
There’s a bunch of stuff about this on the internet, and most of it’s nonsense. You probably noticed this yourself.
Forget all the enemas, colonic irrigations and nasty stuff like that.
Just drink plenty of good water, eat organic foods.
Concentrated beetroot juice is quite amazing for detoxing yourself. But if you find it really unpleasant, maybe a nice Borscht might be a more palatable way to consume beetroot?
Exercise will sweat a lot of the bad stuff from you.
The body is quite good at cleaning itself up, it’s what your liver is for. As long as you’re not topping up the bad stuff faster than it can get rid of it…
Finally, the Activation…
Spiritual practice is essential to the activation of the pineal gland.
Meditation, regular meditation. The meditation exercise here is designed to work through all of your chakras, and awaken the pineal gland, without you even knowing it!
