Shattering The Matrix

We Sleep No More!

No one quite knows what to make of the pineal gland. This cone-shaped pea of a gland sits on the roof of the third ventricle of the brain, directly behind the root of the nose, floating in a small lake of cerebrospinal fluid. Because it lies in the center of the brain, neurosurgeons and radiologists have found it a useful landmark for brain surgery.

But until relatively recently, it was the subject of much lore as the gateway into the soul or the higher realm, the memory valve, an energy vortex, the main tap for vital fluids and even the source of mental illness.

It was philosopher René Descartes, who first laid claim to the idea that the pineal gland is the seat of the soul, a unique meeting point between body and soul. In modern times, the gland has been consigned to the neurological dustbin, regarded by the scientific community as an evolutionary leftover, the appendix of the brain.

In all higher vertebrates, including humans, the pineal gland secretes melatonin. Production of this hormone is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light.

The pineal has been called a photo-neuroendocrine transducer, through which a neural signal with environmental information is converted into a chemical message – in this case, to switch on or off the production of melatonin.

Master clock
Melatonin acts as a kind of master clock, regulating our sleep/wake cycle and retarding the ageing process, regulating growth and even maintaining mental stability.

Although scientists realize that the pineal is light-sensitive, it has always been assumed that the light or darkness enters as usual from the rod and cone receptors in the eye retina and makes its way to the gland via the sympathetic nerves. The conventional wisdom is that a small percentage of the impulses from the optic nerve are detoured to the pineal from the visual pathway, and it is this input which controls the production of melatonin.

Researcher Serena Roney-Dougal has gathered together some of the most compelling research into the biological means by which the geomagnetic flux of the earth might cause the pineal gland to allow us to psychically ‘tune in’.

Psychedelic gland
Besides melatonine, the pineal gland also produces the ‘neuromodulator’ chemicals— called beta-carbolines — which affect the brain. Beta-carbolines are both monoamine-oxidase (MAO) inhibitors and serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which means that they prevent the breakdown of serotonin by inhibiting its uptake into the brain’s synapses.

This is akin to what doctors claim is the action of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac.

Some evidence also suggests that the pineal can also manufacture an hallucinogenic substance called 5-methoxydimethyltryptamine (5-methoxy-DMT) from melatonin. What might be the result is a pooling of these amines into the synapses of the brain, causing reactions that are similar to drug-induced hallucinations.

The current view is that neuromodulators need 5-methoxy-DMT and DMT in order to work and that, by blocking MAO, the pineal gland regulates and increases the concentration of serotonin. This regulatory function of blocking one chemical and promoting another is thought to be the catalyst for dreaming.

Several facts suggest that the production of serotonin and melatonin may be in some way involved in psychic phenomena. First, many hallucinogenic substances are chemical sisters to those made by the pineal gland. Yage, or ayahausca, a ceremonial drink made by some Amazon tribes to produce psychic effects for healing, clairvoyance and precognition, is produced from native vines (Banisteriopsis caapi) that are chemically nearly equivalent to the 5-methoxy-DMT in humans.

Tuning in and turning on
When the pineal gland is stimulated geomagnetically, it produces chemicals that are similar to these plant hallucinogens, which help to alter consciousness. Other studies show that psychedelic drugs alter levels of melatonin and serotonin, resulting, in some cases, in psychosis.

So, how could the earth’s geomagnetic fluctuations affect these brain chemicals? Researchers have found that electromagnetic and geomagnetic fields strongly affect the production and activity of the enzyme hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase (HIOMT). It is this enzyme that is centrally involved in the production of melatonin and possibly 5-methoxytryptamine (5-MT). Any changes in the the magnetic field can produce changes in this enzyme’s activity.

Studies in animals have also shown that any strong change in the ambient magnetic field—whether increased or decreased—will inhibit production of HIOMT.

Other research shows that serotonin N-acetyltransferase, the enzyme involved in the production of melatonin, is strongly affected by electromagnetic fields.

If this is the case, says Roney-Dougal, any strong change in the earth’s ambient magnetic field would produce a rush of natural hallucinogens in our bodies, enabling us to be more psychically receptive.

Psychic activity
A number of fascinating studies shows some sort of correlation between geomagnetic activity and an increase in dreams or psychic activity. In one such study, the famous parapsychologist Stanley Krippner set up a dream laboratory where some participants slept in a room while other participants attempted to ‘send’ them certain images in hopes that these images would become incorporated into the sleeping participants’ dreams. Upon waking, the sleepers had to describe their dreams in great detail to determine if there were any correlations with the target pictures they’d been ‘sent’ during their slumbers.

Global geomagnetic activity was tracked for 20 of the nights that one study participant was the dreaming recipient. In this case, it was found that, on nights of less geomagnetic activity, the dreamer had significantly greater accuracy in picking up the target pictures.

It may well be that our human potential is at its greatest when we are in harmony with the earth and the sun. Traditional cultures had some greater understanding of this energetic harmony that we do well to learn from.

I used to have camping holidays when my boys were young, no housework no phone no one knocking at the door.

To feel free is a wonderful feeling

To activate the pineal gland i am sure is to get back to nature, i am now living on my own and have let go of so many people in my life, and now having psychic experiences

The pineal gland, the third eye, where women from India put a stone in that area on their forehead. This article references global geomagnetic activity tracked for 20 days but only references one participant for the dreaming study. Due to the solar storms coming this attached article refers to our ability for logic, right from wrong, our brain is distorted by magnets. I really think we need to be aware of this information for the future. What is possibly going to happen may open that third eye.
If what I was told is accurate, soon we will remember who we are, our past lives, and start gaining back the abilities we used to have. I have slight psychic abilities, a knowing, but I can't control it, and is not always there. Many times I would know in advance. Crisis sometimes interferes. I remember one time my x had the daughter and I knew which large neighborhood, I was late to pick up the address off the voice mail, had been shopping, so I just went. I looked at a street and said no, no then a yes. I looked at the houses, said no, no, no, then stopped in front of one. My daughter runs out of the house I had never been to and jumps in the car. I tried with newspapers on picking out a date and failed. Sometimes you sense this stranger or situation is a problem and then find out you are right. There is supposed to be much truth that opening of the pineal gland activates some of our lost abilities. Some have even drilled holes in their head to activate it.

If accurate, way back, we, our souls, were incased into our bodies and our DNA altered to make us as workers and slaves. Eventually we lost the abilities we had but some didn't loose all. Our eating habits is suppose to deter our abilities, example eating meat and grains, etc. Supposedly we were made for raw fruits and vegatables...Boring. Hitler did an experiment with young babies and children leff on their own without any human or technology interference and they exceeded in their abilities, psychic, able to be without clothes and not feel cold in the snow, telekenisis (sp), so-on. The Mayans and Hopis are saying we need to connect to the old ways we have forgotten, to connect to Earth. Being able to operate the pineal is one of them. Drugs of today also is suppose to stop our abilities. I sure know stress has an impact.

Sometimes I wish I could just go to the mountains with somebody in the know, stay for days, being at one with the elements, without, and watch the animals and nature and see if this helps on the needed connection we have lost by our society. I'm a city girl by heart and prefer that environment but raised where I would sometimes loose myself in the mountains, in a forest, on many week-ends, hike for hours, nobody around. Sometimes I think some of the animals are smarter, more sense, than some of us humans.

Looking at the sun directly, I've read OK to learn how to feed via the sun if you have dark eyes but don't look direct if you have light eyes, go indirect. Vitamin D is known to be a healer. I have tried to look at the sun through a window for a short time and surprised saw no vision problems later after reading what Jeanne mentions but also for another reason. We're lucky. We are learning that there is more to life than the norm and where to find many of the answers.

Very interesting article. Thanks for sharing. It's good to know it.

I have always been a dreamer and remember a good portion of them too. When I was taking the anti depressant paxil man was I ever dreaming way out dreams too. Once in awhile I have trouble sleeping and I will take the natural herb melatonin it causes me to have a wild dream night. I have been taking for the last couple years etheric gold tablets by harmonic supplements it is helping to restore the healthy pineal gland activity. I have had visions of past lives and amazingly haven't been sick in a couple years thanks good article.

Good send..Some thought provoking material....It all comes down to the last paragraph now doesn't it...
I was 'given' a meditations in the mid 90's...that I was told It was important... to act as a transformer for the help provide harmony between the Sun, the Earth and the Stars....
My thoughts are we can look into it, or we can do it... I feel the time line, would agree with me... The time is now, We are the Ones. Ins All inside.

That thing about living in cave's... I have lived on two Islands.... Each time, when I settled in, it was like the weight of the world was taken from me. The water acted as a buffer for the energy that bombards those who use their Intuitive or Empathic tools a lot...When One lives the life of a hermit, there is much space to explore and play in... No other negative energies put on you... Free to explore who you are....Any where One can be alone, is a palace ....
.When I actually felt the difference, it was wonderful... It helped me recognize which energy was mine, and which energy came to me from others... a evolutionary lesson....

Makes one wonder as why the Seers of Ancient times lived in caves, or did their readings in the dark of night wih only faint candle lights burning. Also, if the P-gland is capable of producing so many enhancing chemical stimulii, what then do they think drives the P-gland to selectively produce a certain chemical reagent? We are a puzzle in the works of progress, are we not?
