THE FIRST EYE: The Spiritual Eye, A Cognitive Advantage For Black People - How To Decalcify And Activate Your Pineal Gland!


May 19, 2013 - FOOD & HEALTH - The pineal gland is a cone-shaped structure in the center of the brain, situated between the superior colliculi, the pulvinar, and the splenium of the corpus callosum. It produces melatonin, which regulates sleep/wake cycles.

In conjunction with the adrenal glands, the Pineal Gland effects skin pigmentation, helps regulate potassium and sodium levels in the body, controls one's mental stability, and controls mental and sexual growth. It is often referred to as the Seat of the Soul.

This gland alone links the physical body with the Other Side or unseen realm of existence. The pineal gland is the seat of the mystical first eye, often called the third eye, that you hear so much about in occult and metaphysical teachings and circles. While we see physically with the two physical eyes, we see spiritually with the first eye, located directly in the middle of the physical eyes. The first eye is our spiritual eye and just as the physical eyes can suffer, so can our spiritual eyesight.

Our spiritual eye is referred to as our first eye. The first eye is the site of our sixth and seventh energy centers known as chakras. The first eye via the Pineal Gland controls the attributes and functions of the 6th chakra (Ajna in Sanskrit), which include: clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvoyance, telepathy, ESP (extra sensory perception), intuition, and Christ consciousness (or Cosmic consciousness).

The first eye via the Pineal Gland also controls the attributes and functions of the 7th chakra (called Sahasrara in Sanskrit), which include: linkage with the Higher Self, astral projection and astral travel, and ascension to the Akashic Records. The Soul leaves the body via the 7th Chakra during death (transitioning) and dreaming (lower astral realm).

The Pineal Gland is the seat of consciousness but is also, again, the exit for the Soul from the body during sleep and death (transitioning). If the Soul leaving the body via the Pineal Gland (or Crown Chakra) is temporary, you have dreaming or OBE (out-of-body experience).

If the soul leaving the body via the Pineal Gland is permanent, you have what is called death.

Dietary influence

Here are some things you should avoid if you want to prevent calcification and degeneration of the Pineal Gland:
  • Meat (all kinds)
  • Dairy products (all kinds)
  • Refined Grains
  • Refined Starches
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Synthetic sweeteners Salt Acidic beverages (soda pop)
  • Beer/wine/alcohol
  • Cigarettes (Tobacco)
  • Pharmaceutical drugs Illicit drugs (crack cocaine, cocaine, heroin, etc.)
  • Antidepressants
  • Marijuana
  • Energy drinks
  • White frosted light bulbs
  • Negative television programming, i.e. violent reality shows, the news, etc.
Individual herbs that help to decalcify and stimulate the Pineal Gland include Wood Betony, Gotu Kola, Parsley, Alfalfa, and Mugwort. The best herb for the maintenance and repair of the Pineal Gland hands down is Gotu Kola.

Melatonin Supplements

Beware of Melatonin supplements. Make sure the product's ingredients are plant-based and not animal based, i.e. cow (bovine) pineal gland. Animal hormones do not act the same way in human body's.

If you're taking Melatonin to aid you in sleep, consider some of Nature's herbs such as Kava Kava, Jatamansi, Lavender Flower, Valerian Root, Skullcap, Catnip, Wild Lettuce and/or Passionflower instead of Melatonin.


Emotional influence

Low Serotonin levels counts for a major reason why there is so much depression in Westerners today, especially in the United States, and especially amongst Black or African-American people, and especially during the Winter season when there is shortened daylight hours.

Seasonal depression (also known as SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder) due to lack of sunlight can be helped with the use of full spectrum lighting (full spectrum light bulbs) which are available at good health food stores like Whole Foods Market and health companies such as Gaia.Com.

Symptoms of SAD include: limiting social contact, depression, loss of energy, decreased interest in sex, weight gain, over sleeping and withdrawal. SAD usually occurs in the winter when there is less sunlight (Ra).

Physical influence

Under active Pineal Gland is caused by consumption of things that contain synthetic hormones that adversely affect all glands of the endocrine system including the Pineal Gland. Consuming meat and dairy products will adversely affect the endocrine system in general, and the Pineal Gland in particular and thus impair one's spirituality and cosmic clarity (awareness).

The skin pigmentation disorder 'vitiligo' is also related to the pineal gland, a defect of the pineal gland. When the Pineal Gland is underactive, defects such as vitiligo can occur.

Magnets

Attaching a magnet (that sticks by adhesive) to the part of your skin above your first eye (located between your two physical eyes but slightly higher or slightly above the eyes) for a few hours throughout the day will also stimulate the Pineal Gland and help to decalcify it.

Magnets causes the body to become alkaline, especially that part of the body where the magnet is attached. Any strength (gauss) magnet will work, but only use magnets on the head area during waking hours. The energy from Ra (Sun) will magnify the strength of the magnet's effect on the Pineal Gland.

Essential Oils

Essentials oils can be used to help stimulate the Pineal Gland and facilitate states of spiritual awareness, meditation, astral projection, etc.

Good essential oils for Pineal Gland purposes include: Sandalwood, Frankincense, Parsley, Davana, Pine, Pink Lotus, and Mugwort (excess use has a neurotoxin effect if inhaled directly).

Essential oils can be inhaled directly, burned in a diffuser or nebulizer, and added to bath water.

Hormonal Influence

The Pineal Gland is known for its mystical hormonal secretions, most of which prevent aging or premature aging. One of these mystical secretions is a substance called melanin.

Our bodies secrete a beneficial anti-aging hormone called Melatonin at night. Melatonin is also secreted from the Pineal Gland, the gland that corresponds to the Sixth and Seventh chakras, our psychic and spiritual centers respectively. Melatonin has marked diurnal rhythm.

Melatonin causes drowsiness. When it becomes dark (Sun sets), the Pineal Gland begins to secrete Melatonin and the Melatonin makes us drowsy so that we can fall asleep.

Spiritual influence

The Pineal Gland is the seat of divine/spiritual wisdom. The ancient people of Kemet (Egypt) always wore crowns that featured a snake or serpent protruding from the first eye area of the crown. To the ancient people of Kemet, snakes denoted wisdom. That's why in the Bible you are admonished to "be wise as serpents." Matthew 10:16

Crystals

Crystals that benefit the Pineal Gland include: Amethyst (wand), Laser Quartz (wand), Moonstone, Pietersite, Purple Sapphire, Purple Violet Tourmaline, Rhodonite, Rose Aura, and Sodalite. However, any indigo, violet, or dark purple gemstone or crystal can be used to stimulate the Pineal Gland and open/balance/align the 6th and 7th Chakras.

Placed directly on the first eye or brow chakra for 15-30 minutes a day or every other day will help to open/balance/align the first Eye (Brow) chakra and prevent/remove calcification of the gland.

The best exercise for Pineal Gland stimulation and health is to take an amethyst obelisk crystal or an amethyst wand, point it at the first eye (point of the wand should touch your skin) and look up directly at the Sun with your eyes closed. Do this everyday or whenever you feel like it for about 5-10 minutes. The Sun's rays will penetrate through the base part of the obelisk or the end part of an amethyst wand and beam directly into the Pineal Gland stimulating it. You can also use the Laser Quartz (wand) as well. Quartz crystal benefits every single chakra.

Chanting

Chanting causes the tetrahedron bone in the nose to resonate and this resonance causes the Pineal Gland to be stimulated and when it is stimulated it secretes more beneficial hormones, and remember: these beneficial hormones keep your appearance youthful.

The sound "OM" resonates with the Fourth Chakra, known as the Heart Center, the seat of Unconditional Love.

Chanting OM opens you up to Universal and cosmic awareness. You can chant up to 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or however long you desire to. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) - DHerbs.




Pineal Gland: A Cognitive Advantage for Africans
The pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone that is secreted in response to darkness, and is also the site in the brain where the highest levels of Serotonin can be found (Sun et al, 2001). In the pineal, 5-HT (Serotonin) concentration displays a remarkable diurnal pattern, with day levels much higher than night levels. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, perception, memory, cardiovascular activity, respiratory activity, motor output, sensory and neuroendocrine function.
By Bernie Douglas (January 17, 2008)

Racial differences have been noted in the rate of pineal calcification as seen in plain skull radiographs. In Caucasians, calcified pineal is visualized in about 50% of adult skull radiographs after the age of 40 years (Wurtman et al, 1964); other scholars argue that Caucasians, in general, may have rates of pineal gland calcification as high as ­60-80% (King, 2001). Murphy (1968) reported a radiological pineal calcification rate of 2% from Uganda, while Daramola and Olowu (1972) in Lagos, Nigeria found a rate of 5%. Adeloye and Felson (1974) found that calcified pineal was twice as common in White Americans as in Blacks in the same city, strengthening a suspicion that there may be a true racial difference with respect to this apparatus. In India a frequency of 13.6% was found (Pande et al, 1984). Calcified pineal gland is a common finding in plain skull radiographs and its value in identifying the midline is still complementary to modern neuroradiological imaging.




There is a surprising rarity of calcified pineal gland on skull roentgenograms in West Africans. Adeloye and Odeku (1967) working from a hospital where an average of about 2,000 skull roentgenographic examinations were done every year, encountered less than 10 cases of roentgenologically visible calcified pineal gland in the Neurosurgery unit during a period of 10 years. In the tasks of daily life, calcification in the pineal gland affects our brain's ability to function. Calcification of the pineal gland is shown to be closely related to defective sense of direction (Bayliss et al, 1985). In a tricentre prospective study of 750 patients lateral skull radiographs showed that 394 had calcified pineal glands. Sense of direction was assessed by subjective questioning and objective testing and the results noted on a scale of 0-10 (where 10 equals perfect sense of direction). The average score for the 394 patients with pineal gland calcification was 3.7 (range 0-8), whereas the 356 patients without pineal gland calcification had an average score of 7.6 (range 2-10). This difference was highly significant (p less than 0.01) (Bayliss et al, 1985). Also, the effects of disturbed sleep and memory are well documented.

The Pineal Gland looks like a miniature pine cone and is situated in the middle of the brain beneath the two brain halves, surrounded by the ventricles, under the roof of the corpus callosum (cross-beam connecting the 2 brain halves). This active organ has, together with the Pituitary Gland, the next highest blood circulation after the kidneys. The pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone that is secreted in response to darkness, and is also the site in the brain where the highest levels of Serotonin can be found (Sun et al, 2001). In the pineal, 5-HT (Serotonin) concentration displays a remarkable diurnal pattern, with day levels much higher than night levels. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, perception, memory, cardiovascular activity, respiratory activity, motor output, sensory and neuroendocrine function.

One study has shown a reciprocal relationship between the pineal and pituitary gland so that if the pineal is impaired, it affects the pituitary (Karasek and Reiter, 1982). This has a whole cascade of effects on the other glands and hormone production. The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland located at the base of the brain, and produces hormones, such as growth hormone, luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone and thyroid stimulating hormone.

Pineal indolamine (e.g. Melatonin/Serotonin) and peptide hormones influence immune functions. Melatonin, in particular, increases immune memory while T-dependent antigene immunization stimulates antibody production. According to Maestroni (1993), in an article published in the Journal of Pineal Research a tight physiological link between the pineal gland and the immune system is emerging that might reflect the evolutionary connection between self-recognition and reproduction. He goes further, mentioning that Pinealectomy or other experimental methods which inhibit melatonin synthesis and secretion induce a state of immunodepression which is counteracted by melatonin. In general, melatonin appears to have an immunoenhancing effect. An interesting observation is the apparent protection from autoimmune diseases in areas of West Africa and especially in places where malaria is a problem (Greenwood, 1968).

Scholars believe the reduction in melatonin with age may be contributory to aging and the onset of age-related diseases. This theory is based on the observation that melatonin is the most potent hydroxyl radical scavenger thus far discovered (Reiter, 1995). Prominent theories of aging attributes the rate of aging to accumulated free radical damage (Proctor, 1989; Reiter, 1995), and as Caucasians have higher rates of pineal calcification, which produces melatonin which is a vital free radical scavenger, some suspect that people of European descent may actually age faster than those from other continents.

Pineal gland calcification has also been implicated in the onset of Multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Neuroradiological research has shown the pineal gland to be involved in the pathophysiology of Multiple Sclerosis. In a 1991 study by Sandyk R, and Awerbuch G.I published in the “International Journal of Neuroscience”, it was shown that Pineal Calcification was found in 100 % of MS patients. The strikingly high prevalence of pineal calcification in Multiple sclerosis provides indirect support for an association between MS and abnormalities of the pineal gland (Sandyk and Awerbuch, 1991). Multiple Sclerosis tends to affect Caucasians disproportionately, and is nearly unheard of in Africa and is rare among African Americans. A high prevalence of pineal calcification has also been linked to bipolar disorder. - Africa Resource.
