So these days you will find me regularly meditating in an attempt to open my Third Eye. (No, I am not Cyclops sister!). The Third Eye is medically attributed to be the Pineal Gland which sits kinda central in the brain and resembles a wee Pine Cone – hence its name. This small gland, that nestles between the two hemispheres of the brain, produces Melatonin a Serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns. Biologically this gland is said to represent a kind of atrophied photoreceptor – that’s a simple eye to you and me; it is also, sometimes, called a Pigment Pit.
In Theosophy, a collection of mystical and occultist philosophies, the third eye is related to the Pineal Gland and it is said that in ancient times humans had an actual third eye in the back of the head with a spiritual and physical function. As humans evolved this eye atrophied and sunk into what we now call the Pineal Gland. Interestingly Rene Descartes, French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist 1596 – 1650, believed this small gland to be the ‘principal seat of the soul’.
The Pineal Gland can become calcified and turgid through pollutants such as Fluoride and it is because of this that I have recently switched brands for my oral hygiene routine which are Fluoride free. (Fluoride is detrimental to the functioning of free thought and, added as it is to water supplies by government, is a tool to exercise mass mind control). The Third Eye has to be open to allow a person to see the unseen and meditation is accredited as the best way to open it.
Until recently meditation seemed like New Age nonsense to me. I now realise that I was being judgemental in my dismissal of it and regurgitating an inherited societal belief. In our busy world it can certainly appear counterproductive and peculiar to stop what we are doing and be still, yet in stillness a person may find themselves and truth may be revealed.
For several years I have been working on self-development and my awareness. Initially my reason for this was to become a finely tuned kickass entrepreneur. However, destiny had another plan and, whilst this may eventually be a happy spinoff to my learning, things took an unexpected and surprisingly Spiritual turn as I discovered that I am a Lightworker charged to help spread love and light by using my creative talents for the greater good of all.
This mighty mission leaves me feeling a tad inadequate and daunted. I sense that, to be of real value and service, I must now concentrate on developing my psychic gifts fully so as I can more specifically be a conduit for the message of Spirit. So each day I eke out time to meditate to open my pesky Third Eye. I try to raise my energetic vibration in the hope that the spirits will lower theirs and meaningful, independent, communication can then commence.
Yesterday I lay down, settled myself through my breath and asked my spirit guide Mary, friend Kerrie and Mum for a specific sign to encourage me with my meditating efforts. I was still for 20 minutes or so mentally focusing on the space between my eyebrows, watching waves of optical colour whoosh gently by. My mind was fairly blank – no easy task for me. Suddenly, with absolutely no conscious thought, a circular image of hands clasped in friendship faded in on the screen of my mind’s eye before gently fading away. The lovely ladies, bless them, were showing me that I am supported, loved and never alone. This is the first time that I have successfully, consciously, connected with spirit and it demonstrates to me that anything is possible with lashings of faith and perseverance.
I have a long way to go before I can chat with Spirit unhindered but I have a knowing that one day I will be able to do just that. In the interim I must be content with what I get and enjoy my jolly jaunt.
