The pineal gland is a tiny pine cone shaped gland (0.3 inches), located in the centre of the brain, in between between the two hemispheres. It is so small that it only weighs 0.1 grams.

The pineal gland can be viewed as the link between the body (physicality) and the spiritual realms. It is important we keep our third eye open so that we maintain our connection between these two worlds.

The pineal gland is our doorway to extra-sensory perception. When we visualize something strongly enough, we can literally see it in our ‘mind’s eye’. In his book ‘passions of the soul’, philosopher and scientist René Descartes describe the pineal gland as the “principal seat of the soul.” In Hindu tradition the third eye is believed to be awoken through the activation of the seven chakras. The third eye is known as the Ajna chakra (the sixth chakra). Those who are awakened are often perceived as having activated their third eye.

This significance of the pineal gland is proven by its vast representation in many cultures throughout history. It is one of the most mysterious emblems, found in ancient myths, sculptures, paintings and engravings throughout the world.

As well as having an important spiritual function (as detailed in my post above), the pineal gland also has several important biological functions, not least the regulation of melatonin, a vital hormone that regulates sleep and maintains the body’s circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle).

A calcified pineal gland (caused primarily by the accumulation of fluoride) blocks access to higher states of awareness/consciousness, and diminishes intuitive and psychic abilities. This is why fluoride has long been used as a weapon against humanity, in order to keep us spiritually weak and subdued.
