The pineal gland, an endocrine gland located in the brain, is said to be the seat of the soul.
Also referred to as the Third Eye, this small gland is believed to be
involved in reaching higher levels of consciousness, acting as a gateway
to dimensions beyond our brain-created reality. To learn more about the
pineal gland, see: What is the Pineal Gland?
For the people that seek to fully activate their spiritual potential and
tap into the power of the pineal gland, one must begin by strengthening
its function though detoxification and proper nutrition. Researchers
are finding that in many people, due to our poor diet with pesticide and
chemical-laden foods and environmental toxins such as fluoride in our
water, the pineal gland and our entire bodies are becoming exposed to
many more toxins and nano-organisms than ever before. These form calcium
shells around themselves for protection from our immune systems which
has resulted in calcification of the pineal gland,
a build-up of calcium phosphate crystals in various parts of the human
body. Many of us have a pineal gland that is already completely
calcified. This does not fare well when we try to tap into the esoteric
capabilities of this gland through yoga practice, meditation, using
plant medicines such as ayahuasca,
and so forth. The process of detoxification is an essential place to
start if we want to exploit our full spiritual capabilities.
