The Pineal is a gland that sits inside the middle of the brain is about the size of a grain of rice and is associated with the Crown Chakra. This tiny gland is responsible brain activity and sleeping patterns. The Pineal is affected by the cycles of the sun and secretes both melatonin and serotonin as a result.
Melatonin is responsible for sleep quality, dreams and a positive “warm and sunny” disposition; whereas serotonin is responsible for your overall energy level. Think about when you have traveled over several time zones and adjusted to the time. Your body clock eventually adapts to the time due to the sun through the Pineal. Just as plants need the sun to survive, so do humans.
Because of our relative ignorance about the pineal gland for so long, it became the object of mythical theories and attributions. Compounding these rumors was the fact that the pineal gland is lodged very deep in the brain, close to its center. Various shaman-types have claimed that the pineal gland secretes natural psychedelics and is somehow a connection between the earthly realm and a spirit world.
According the Spirit Voyage:
Identity – Self Knowledge | The Demon To Conquer – ATTACHMENT | Developed From – Adulthood
DEFICIENT: Spiritually isolated, no faith in higher essence, martyr mentality, rigid belief systems, materialistic,
EXCESS: Spiritual addiction, righteousness, over intellectualisation, mental illness, spiritual superiority complex
PHYSICAL MALFUNCTIONS THAT CAN MANIFEST: Brain tumours, migraines, amnesia, possible entity attachment, imbalance in the nervous system,
BALANCED: Ability to perceive and analyse, intelligence, wisdom, spiritual connection
Our crown chakra governs our belief systems and our capacity for intellect. It’s the chakra that we use when we establish a mental connection with others and the same energy centre responsible for our personal values. When the crown chakra is balanced we are released from ego driven desires, and can trust in our highest guidance.
Have you ever had an experience where your connection to your guidance helped you in a profound way? I’d love to hear it.
