The Power of The Pineal Gland: Why You Shouldn’t Force Third Eye Activation

The Power of The Pineal Gland: Why You Shouldn’t Force Third Eye Activation

We discuss the responsibility of clearing the etheric body and allowing the third eye to activate naturally. Plus, we take a look at how we can stay grounded during ascension to ensure our spiritual journey is as seamless as possible.

What is the pineal gland?

The pineal gland is often referred to by mystics as the “seat of the soul” a term coined by French philosopher Renee Descartes. The pineal gland is a small pinecone shaped gland located in the epithalamus near the center of the brain. It is a part of the endocrine system and produces melatonin, a serotonin - derived hormone which determines sleep patterns in both circadian and seasonal cycles. Additionally, the pineal gland also produces dimethyltryptamine (DMT). While this DMT is produced in small amounts, an increase in DMT through breath work, psychedelics, kundalini yoga, and other forms of spiritual practice can stimulate the body to activate enough DMT to produce a state of intense euphoria where one experiences visual hallucinations. For spiritual enthusiasts, these hallucinations are believed to be a streamline of supernatural events occurring in communication with higher universal dimensions.

In spiritual studies, the pineal gland is often referred to as the Third Eye chakra, an energetic centre located between the brows which is believed to be the portal to the inner realms, higher consciousness and universal dimensions. The third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment and is associated with clairvoyance, the ability to observe and communicate with energy (guides, angels, chakras) and out-of-body experiences. By awakening the third eye we are able to attain psychic gifts and an intimate connection with universal consciousness. 

We are all born with a healthy pineal gland and open third eye chakra. However, for the majority of humans, the pineal gland is often calcified due to poor diet, ongoing use of fluoride, and very minimal attention to spiritual activities such as daily meditation and ritualistic fasting (to name a few). For this reason, the third eye remains inactive, which is a great disadvantage in obtaining sovereignty. 

The pineal gland in ancient history and scripture

As mentioned above, the pineal gland resembles a pinecone and its symbolism is consistently seen throughout ancient civilizations and cultures from Sumer, Egypt, Greece and Rome.

In addition, modern religion has also adopted the pinecone symbolism and the pineal gland/third eye is referenced in biblical scripture.

"Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. (Genesis 32:30)

“The light of thy body is thy eye. If thy eye be single, thy whole body shall be lightsome. But if thy eye be evil thy whole body shall be darksome. If then the light that is in thee, be darkness: the darkness itself how great shall it be!” (Matthew 6:22-23) 

By awakening the third eye we are able to attain psychic gifts and an intimate connection with universal consciousness. 

As Christ explains in Mathew 6:22-23, when the third eye is illuminated you will experience spiritual awakening and enlightenment. At this time all is revealed to you - the good and the bad. For many the darkness seen within and without can be traumatic and unsettling. 

If you are fixated on opening your third eye instead of clearing your vessel, you are looking for a high and bypassing the true meaning of ascension —healing. Clearing lifetimes of trauma stored in your etheric body will give you more vitality and insight than psychic vision alone. When our energy centers (chakras) are not clear and our body is riddled in trauma and poisons from the chemicals we are consistently exposed to, what we can experience when we force third eye activation is a series of spiritual attacks guised as psychotic episodes and/or intense periods of anxiety and psychosis. Once you have opened yourself up to the astral plane without the protection of intuition and well-built discernment (via Holy Spirit/Christ Consciousness/Jesus) you are unable to filter out low frequencies which will become over bearing in the awakening process. Spiritual health is of the utmost importance and it is imperative that you create and sustain sovereignty by obliterating the ego - which is often responsible for the unqualified and premature decision to force third eye activation.

Third eye activation is often encouraged in new age communities where psychedelic ceremonies and channelling are promoted rather than deep energy healing at the hands of one’s own connection to The Divine. This community often mistaken spiritual attacks and entity attachments for ascension symptoms, but the differences are night and day. Ascension symptoms happen when God is clearing your trauma by allowing you to look at it and feel it for energetic emergence. Spiritual attacks feel personal. They are deeply frightening, intrusive, draining, and often times make their way into our dream state. As Universal Law states “you attract what you are”. Forcing third eye activation and exposing yourself to other realms when you have lifetimes of trauma trapped in your energy signature is what makes you susceptible to spiritual warfare. 

This is to remind you that the sacred duty of purifying the body and strengthening the spirit allows for the eye to open naturally and gracefully - in Divine timing. We always want to allow nature to take its course. Humans are burdened with impatience which often leads us to forcing outcomes that do not align with the harmony and flow that the universe abides too. When third eye activation takes places naturally, the rewards are immensely gratifying. 

Staying grounded and healing the etheric body

Grounding is the most spiritual experience you can have on this earth plane. It is the epitome of spiritual health to be harmonious in mind, body and spirit. Clearing the vessel begins by studying yourself. Examine your inner dialogue, explore your emotions, observe your behaviours and adjust them according to the values that align with the sacredness that resides within. A great place to begin is by reviewing the chakra system and learning about each one to examine where you are blocked. The lower chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus) are essential to heal as they store the lowest frequency emotions associated with deep trauma such as fear, guilt and shame. See below for a quick chakra guide. In the meantime, check out our list of ways you can begin clearing your vessel of trauma and decalcifying your pineal gland while staying grounded.
