The work of Dr. Rick Strassman has illuminated many of the mysteries long kept by the ancients to modern science and the general public, somewhat demystifying the nuances of the fascinating pineal gland and its relationship to a consciousness altering chemical called DMT or Dimethyltryptamine.
If I may paraphrase the un-paraphrasable, the pineal gland is a sort of organ that is a physical expression of the ‘third-eye’ chakra or the intuitive sight each human possesses. This gland manufactures and releases a very special neurotransmitter- Dimethyltryptamine- into the body, but only on specific occasions. These occasions include birth, death, extreme trauma, and certain sleep states characterized by sleep and altered awareness.
Based on his years of the clinical administration of DMT, Dr. Strassman donned DMT with the mystifying nickname- The Spirit Molecule, because after his years of watching patients exogenously consume this power chemical and witnessing their other-worldly, ego-shattering, and consciousness altering experiences, he theorized that DMT is nothing short of the very substance the ushers the soul itself in and out the body.
Why Activate the Pineal Gland?
As mentioned, the pineal gland is the physical gland associated with the capabilities inherent in the third eye. Those would be altered and expanded states of consciousness, omniscience (knowing information that is logically unattainable), intuition, and related abilities. If we can awaken and open our third eye and thus bring to life our pineal gland, we will more fully embody our god-self- that is our personal expression of the enlightened human.
Commonly understood is that many people’s pineal glands are calcified to some extent and this has several explanations. One is that the US govt. has mass medicated the US population for years through fluoridation of water. Fluoride is proven to calcify the pineal gland. The shrinking and shriveling of the pineal gland from its original size which is reportedly much larger and fuller than our current version could also be due to our so-called ‘fall in consciousness’ from the higher dimensional states of our ancestors.
Therefore, step one is to begin decalcifying the pineal gland. HOWEVER, don’t be carried away by the physical ritual of detoxification. While many will find that physical detoxification of the pineal gland is a tangible and powerful permission slip, it IS possible to activate the pineal gland through thoughts, intention, and energetic disciplines or permission slips alone I know because I have done it.
Step 1: Decalcify the Pineal Gland by Detoxifying
The first part of this would be to cease actions that you believe are leading to the calcification of your pineal gland in the first place- like drinking unfiltered city water or other habitual practices that you may feel are lowering your vibrations- like excessive tv watching, negative thought patterns, etc.
The following are further step that can assist with decalcification from in5d.com:
· Don’t use fluorescent bulbs. The standard, cheap light bulbs are very inconsistent with the natural light spectrum. Your pineal gland is light-sensitive. It’s also important to sleep in complete darkness, if possible.
· Place a crystal on your brow chakra daily. Meditating with a crystal is energetically beneficial for pineal decalcification. Some of the favorites are amethyst, clear quartz, sodalite, and lapis lazuli.
· Use herbs. Herbs like mugwort, wood betony, alfalfa, parsley, and gotu kola have wonderful healing properties. You can make a tea or grind it and sprinkle on a salad, or it can be smoked as part of a ritual.
· Avoid mercury. Mercury is extremely toxic. Most vaccines and tooth fillings are mercury-based. However, nowadays, most dentist are using non-mercury based fillings. If you have mercury fillings in your teeth, a holistic dentist can remove them.
· Take Blue Green Algae and other chlorophyll rich “superfoods”. This is similar to eating more veggies but adding a more powerful punch. Other superfoods include chlorella, spirulina, sea moss, and wheatgrass.
· Drink alkaline or distilled water. Alkaline water is electrifying and distilled water removes heavy toxins and metals out of the human body.
· Practice Sungazing. Taking in the Sun’s energy when it is orange or setting/rising is tremendously beneficial for the pineal gland and decalcification. You can do this daily for 3-5 minutes, it doesn’t take long. Your pineal is a crystal and reacts remarkably to our Sun.
Step 2: Consciously Releasing DMT
There are a few approaches you may wish to experiment with in learning to consciously release DMT from the pineal gland for spiritual activation and expanded consciousness. These could include meditation or visualization. The important thing to know within yourself is that is it possible to change your body chemistry and the way your cells are behaving simply by knowing that you can. One you have come into alignment with that belief, you are already well on your way. In fact, you could be creative and design your own method. But here I will provide a few resources for written and recorded meditation that may assist you:
1. How to Release Natural DMT– a written guided meditation guideline by shroomery.com. I find that with detailed written meditations and visualizations, it helps me to record myself speaking the instructions and then do the practice to the sound of the recording I’ve made so that I can put my total focus to the task at hand.
2. Meditation to Unblock the Ajna Chakra– a video that works with the chakra system perspective.
3. A Guided Meditation Video through an Arcturian Channel– yes I said Arturian- as in a guide from another planet. If you aren’t into the concept of outer space intelligence or channeling, that’s ok. It’s the information itself that is important and I have found these videos really effective personally. And here’s one more by the same guide.
Know of any other methods that have worked for you or someone you know, other than ingesting exogenous DMT? We’d love to hear about it. Share your experiences and knowledge in the comments below.
