The Pineal Gland- The Door to Higher Consciousness

Located near the center of the brain, the pineal gland is a very small organ shaped like a pine cone (which is where it gets its name). It’s reddish-gray and about 1/3 inch long.

The pineal gland regulates our sleep, hunger, thirst and sexual drives. So as you can see it is essential for survival. Today most of us can go to our refrigerator if we are hungry, and turn on a faucet if we are thirsty. You can even pick up the phone or go online to get a little “action”. But it wasn’t always that way. Before we began farming and domesticating animals, we had to hunt and gather. It was hard enough to find food, never mind a mate. But we survived and we advanced and one of the reasons why is because of our inner GPS.

The pineal gland contains magnetite. Magnetite is a crystal that literally acts as an antenna for external electromagnetic fields. It is what informs the whales, moose and other migratory mammals on their position as they travel it interacts over a million times more strongly with external electromagnetic fields than any other biological substance. These magnetic frequencies are picked up as sound. One can say the whales can hear where they are and which direction they should go. (perhaps we can call that clairaudient) It helps them find their home, food and even a mate. Surely the Alpha and the Omega must have equipped us with a similar if not more complex Global Positioning System to assist in maneuvering through our lives.

But what is more exciting, is the fact that the pineal gland produces a compound called Dimethyltryptamine also known as DMT. This natural narcotic is also found in plants, fungi and various animals

What is fascinating is that only after 49 days of conception the pineal gland is visible in the developing fetus. The unborn child is already receiving DMT.

Dr. Rick Strassman, the leading researcher in the field of DMT calls it the “spirit molecule.”

“When our individual life force enters our fetal-body, the moment in which we become truly human, it passes through the pineal and triggers the first primordial flood of DMT.”

Oddly enough, large amounts of DMT flood the brain at the time of birth and the time of death. The 49 day mark for the pineal gland to develop in a fetus may hold some significance since the Tibetan Buddhists believe that is the amount of time it takes a soul to reincarnate into another body. Yep! Forty Nine days.

Science is also showing us that higher amounts of DMT are released during elevated spiritual occurrences as well as near-death experiences.

During one of Dr.Strassman’s experiments he injected his volunteers with a plant-based DMT. His subjects reported a wide range of hallucinogenic experiences, including visiting other dimensions.

Some people with head injuries have been known to release extremely high levels of DMT and are reporting experiences very similar to schizophrenia. Instead of the medical industry quickly prescribing drugs for those with schizophrenic episodes, perhaps they should be looking into DMT.

DMT was first synthesized in 1931, but for thousands of years the indigenes natives of the Amazon ingested DMT by brewing a tea from various plants. They performed ceremonies using the concoction to contact and experience the “higher realms.”

In many cultures shamans consider “schizotypal personality disorder” a gift to the community. They are supported by their family and peers and taught how to control their episodes. People with the ability to reach and communicate with other dimensions are considered very intelligent and beneficial. They are nurtured, loved and respected. It all goes back to being a part of a tribe, where you are safe and accepted. What Western cultures do to “abnormal” people is truly a crime and a disservice to everyone.

DMT is considered the most potent psychedelic known to man yet our brain produces it every day. Why?

The French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes was fascinated with the pineal gland. He even regarded it as the “principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed.”

Although Decartes still had much to learn, what he discovered in the 1600’s is pretty wild.

Descartes noticed then when people try to remember things, they tend to look up. When people think they look down. The diagram he drew shows the pineal gland’s position as we look up and down.
