Each of us has one. Each of us use at best 10% of our brain for conscious activity. This is probably the stat that baffles me more than any other. What would happen if we used 100% of our brains? What is the other 90% doing for us? What a strange fact. Jupiter ( the planet of expansion) is transiting my Mercury ( the brain) this year, and I have decided to make this year about optimum pineal gland health. Let’s examine some points.
THE PINEAL GLAND – THE GATEWAY TO THE SOUL- THIRD EYE
The pineal gland is located deep in the brain in an area called the epithalamus,where the two halves of the brain join. In humans, this is situated in the middle of the brain; it sits in a groove just above the thalamus which is an area that co-ordinates a variety of functions related to our senses. The pineal gland contains high levels of calcium and can be used by radiographers to mark the middle of the brain in X-ray images. This is the central command station. It produces drugs for us to cope in this existence. Melatonin and DMT.
This drug or human medicine helps keep us in sync with ‘time’. It regulates our sleep patterns. “ Melatonin is becoming increasingly recognised for his antioxidant and anti-aging effects, its ability to promote healthy sleeping patterns and protect us from electromagnetic pollution. When people begin to supplement with melatonin, many report increased feeling and empathy, leading to more harmonious relationships between family members and friends. Start with 1mg a night and progress upwards from there at a rate you feel comfortable with. Initially you may feel groggy in the morning – this is due to an excess of melatonin receptors resulting from long term deficiency – this will pass. Take melatonin at bedtime and certainly not before driving or using heavy machinery. Although it was once abundant in our brains, we are now unused to operating in the meditative state it promotes. Melatonin rich foods include montmorency cherries and grasses such as wheat grass and barley grass. (brainconsioussnessblogspot)
This drug or human medicine is responsible for our dream state and our ability to dream. You can do your own research, but suffice to say that ancient shamanic culture have used a plant called ayuasca which works to boost the effects that are normally produced in the body. DMT can be taken also just as a drug which is illegal. How bizarre that one of the main drugs that are auto produced by our brain are illegal out there in the world! Pleasure and fantasy as well as pain and fantasy are linked to this experience. If we take a cosmic approach to understanding why we produce this elixir might we say that we need the ability to let go of the need to control and move into a state of mediation and imagination. This is a big subject and one to ponder.
Mediation feeds the 90%. It also allows us to release DMT which can put us into states of euphoria.
NUTRITION FOR THE PINEAL GLAND
Passion flower tea ,st. john’s wart ,raw cacao,omega 3 oils : flax, coconut oils ,minerals ,vit.D3,iodine,maca,algae,Goji berries, raw cacao, maca, bee pollen, algae and barleygrass, purple corn, algaroba, rosehip, vanilla, noni, suma, shilajit and royal jelly, uibiquinol is highly recommended for those over 40, progesterone cream for women,melatonin ,raw milk kefirs, kombucha, cultured vegetables such as sauerkraut and kimchee, miso and seed cheeses. Kefir is probably the most powerful vit.A,vit.b12.
THE ASTROLOGY OF INTELLIGENCE
There are two main planets that indicate intelligence in a Jyotish chart. The first is Mercury, which stands for cleverness, speech, mathematical and logical abilities and the intellect higher education The other karaka (significator) for intelligence is the Moon, the general indicator of the mind. The most important house that correlates with intelligence is the 5th house—the house of Purva Punya or past life credit. This past life credit can manifest as children, luck in investments or gambling, getting good mantras and/or initiations and intelligence. 1st house—the house of the self. Of course, the blessings of lord Jupiter also can indicate great intelligence. Here are some combinations for intelligence mentioned in the classic texts: -The Moon in the 5th house. -Moon, Jupiter and Venus in the 10th house -Moon in Ashwini nakshatra, Moon in Pushya -Jupiter is in exaltation, his own sign, or the 9th house - Jupiter aspects Mercury in Sagittarius or Piscesintelligence and ancestors; -Moon in the 9th house equals intelligence. -Mercury in the 10th house indicates distinguished intelligence.

I have become fascinated by frequency and will explore the planetary connection to the pineal gland next! Love only…
