Third Eye/Pineal Gland
The pineal gland, also referred to as the “Third Eye,” is a small gland and energy center located deep in the center of the brain. Named for its pinecone shape, it is a gateway to higher consciousness. In the spiritual community, the third eye is referred to as the inner eye, the eye of the soul, the eye of reason and is associated with the 6th chakra. The third eye chakra controls vision, intuition, perception of energies and dimensions, psychic abilities, illumination, inspiration, and creativity. If you’re interested in opening your third eye chakra and expanding your psychic abilities, understanding the pineal gland is essential.
Somewhere in our evolutionary process, we’ve forgotten about the power of this pea-sized intuitive aid. For many of us, our pineal gland has gone unused and become calcified. If your third eye chakra is blocked, you may suffer from: Poor vision, sinusitis, migraines, lack of clarity, or feel stuck in the daily grind.
Ancient cultures were well aware of the power of the pineal gland. It’s referenced and depicted in a variety of text and artwork around the world. Furthermore, a variety of breathing techniques, chants, and exercises from ancient cultures are dedicated to activating this tiny gland inside your brain. Foods that help your third eye include: blueberries, purple grapes and cabbage, eggplant and Cacao.
