Ever heard about Pineal Gland activation?
If you are a spiritual person, you probably know the pineal gland, or the third eye, or the sixth sense.
You can also see this concept is mentioned in Indian Buddhism, Yoga, and the Buddhist sutras.
But do you really understand what pineal gland is?
If you can do pineal gland activation, what are the special power you have?
And, what are its benefits?
How to activate your pineal gland?
The following “Pineal gland activation: How to awake it” will provide an in-depth explanation of the pineal gland, as well as some methods to activate it.
What is the pineal gland?
Let's start with the definition of this concept.
The “pineal gland”, sometimes referred to by other names as “sixth sense”, “the third eye”, is an external sensory, which is different from 5 senses we all know (hearing, sight, smell, taste & touch).
The third eye lies in the middle of our forehead.
The energy source of the third eye originates from the “pineal gland” located in the center of our brain.
Because it is a sensory function, the main function of the third eye is to help us absorb information from the world around us (similar to the way our eyes help us to receive information in the form of light, and hearing in the form of sound …).
However, its specialty is that it does not exist in our physical dimension, at least, its entire existence is not limited to the physical dimension of three dimensions.
Have Fascinated People Since Ancient Times
Most of the hermits and philosophers since ancient times have always been fascinated by this secret sensory study, and argue that the third eye actually exists in metaphysical space – which is higher than the 3D space.
This is also the reason why we cannot see and determine its exact location and size.
Also, in India's Yoga, the third eye is considered one of the chakras – energy points existing in metaphysical space, located along our spine – namely, the sixth chakras, Ajna.
Pineal Gland In the Field of Culture and Religion
Because it is a subject with a lot of spiritual nuances, mysterious and stimulating curiosity, the third eye is depicted a lot in areas such as religion and culture.
Spiritually, the third eye is often carved on statues of Deities and Buddha statues.
For example, the third eye is carved on the forehead of the statue of Shiva – the god of destruction in Hinduism.
In addition to the Buddha statues, the eye image carved on the top of the Giza Pyramids in Egypt is also thought to be implicitly referring to the existence of the third eye.
How Pineal Gland (The third eye) works?
First of all, the reader can imagine that this eye has a shape similar to a mirror.
This mirror exists in metaphysical space (so we cannot see or touch it) and is embedded right in the middle of our forehead.
This mirror, when inactive (most of the time in our lives), turns the mirror face inside our brain and will turn the mirror face outside when activated and started to work.
The basic working principle of a mirror is as follows:
- When starting operation, the mirror surface will be rotated from the inside out.
- After being turned out, the mirror will reflect the image of the objects, creatures, scenes in front of it (similar to the working principle of a mirror).
- The mirror surface is then turned back into our brains, allowing us to see the images it has just recorded.
- The flipping back and forth of the mirror surface is very fast, helping us to feel the continuous movement from the surrounding world (like the principle of the operation of a camcorder – 24 images per second of stills).
Why You Should Activate the Pineal Gland
The third eye represents the state of enlightenment that people can perceive the world around.
Basically, it promotes cognitive power through mental clarity and acumen.
Activating the pineal gland doesn’t mean that you will become a psychic or magician, as others think, but you are better in control over your mind and emotions.
The operating of the third eye gives you a deeper sense of intuition related to the world around you.
Here Are Some Benefits from Activation
Feeling More Peaceful
Once you have activated the pineal gland, you can experience its benefits.
Many people say they feel more peaceful after opening the third eye.
Part of this is due to a higher awareness of compassion.
Deeper self-awareness can often help you gain more compassion.
• Being kind to yourself has many benefits. You will feel more confident and less worried.
Extend your knowledge
Hermits and yoga masters also claim that activation of the gland is directly related to “wisdom” (equivalent to words like mindful/enlightened/awakened).
One of the reasons that many people want to enlighten the pineal gland is because it helps them gain a deeper understanding of themselves and life in full.
As it raises awareness of the world around you, it feels like you can learn more about everything.
Those who have opened the third eye feel that they become more knowledgeable.
You will also know more about yourself.
Meditation and mindfulness are a great way to connect yourself.
Once you understand your feelings, you can control them better.
Improve Physical Health
Pineal gland activation reduces stress levels.
You will feel more peaceful and self-conscious.
There are many benefits to the body as a result of reducing stress levels.
People who do not regularly stress are at a lower risk of developing hypertension and symptoms of depression.
Relieving stress can also improve headaches and stomachache. Even your skin will look younger.
There are also some people like the monks, cultivators, or some other special cases who have opened the third eye and have strange powers at different levels.
According to many sources, these functions can be categorized into different groups such as:
1. The ability to see the surroundings without having to see two normal eyes
2. The ability to see through objects, buildings, walls, the human body … (X-ray vision).
3. The ability to see things happening away from the subject both in space and time.
4. The ability to see beings & entities from other dimensions.
5. Ability to grasp and understand the nature & laws of the universe, through “superconscious”.
How to Activate the Pineal Gland
Maybe readers will feel quite paradoxical when the key to opening the third eye lies in forgetting it.
Indeed, on spiritual matters, monks always advise us to let go of attachments (in this case, opening the third eye in order to become cooler, cool more, more special.
Some monks even said that the more you carry in your pursuit of opening the celestial eye (pineal gland), this pursuit/desire will emit impulses of black, surround the energy field around you.
Once this black energy pulse is thick enough, your celestial eye will be unable to open.
The third eye, and the pineal gland in general, according to the monks, are not the ones that can lead the process to our spiritual world.
In fact, we have to lead them.
This means that the opening of the pineal gland depends on whether or not we know how to cultivate the mind.
The more we cultivate, the more wholesome thoughts, the chakras will also gradually be raised to the same level as these and are opened.
Methods of Pineal Gland Activation
The studies of Hinduism and Buddhism have found that the energy groups in our bodies determine our quality.
There are seven basic chakras, in which the third eye chakra (aka Ajna) helps you activate the pineal gland.
Here are the steps to help you activate the pineal gland through Kundalini Yoga.
Step 1: Sit up straight with your legs crossed.
Step 2: Put your hand in front of the lower part of your chest.
The other fingers must be bent and must touch each other in the upper phalange.
Your thumb must point towards you and meet at the tip.
Step 3: Close your eyes and focus on the Ajna chakra.
Becoming aware of what it represents.
Remember, this chakra is located a little above the center of your eyebrow.
Step 4: Soothing, but clear, chanting “OM”
Step 5: When you relax and meditate, think about how this chakra affects your life, or how you want it to affect your life (in positive aspect)
Step 6: Meditate for as long as you like, until your mind feels cleansed and refreshed.

Keep the Ajna Chakra Balanced Through the Sukkhasana Pose
This posture opens your mind to balance your Ajna chakras.
It helps you increase intuition and believe in your instincts.
This chakra governs the activity of the rest of the chakras.
Therefore, it is extremely necessary to balance it.
This posture is completely safe and easy to do unless you have a hip or knee injury.
In such cases, it is best to consult your doctor or yoga teacher training.
Step 1: Sit and cross your legs inside, put your left foot first, and right foot across it.
Your knees should be detached and cross your legs when you are on both feet below the opposite end of the head.
Step 2: Ensure a comfortable distance between your feet and pelvis.
Step 3: Now place your palms on your knees and straighten your back so the body doesn't tilt back.
Make sure your spine is not bent.

Tips for Making Activation Easier
Choose the right setting for meditation and yoga
Some people feel more peaceful and open when immersed in nature.
If appropriate, you can choose to sit outside in meditation.
Find a space that has the right temperature and is not disturbed by others.
Meditation in the home is also great.
Many people design meditation spaces in their homes including comfortable cushions for sitting on the floor, candles, and soft music.
You need to remember that meditation is a private process.
So choose the scene that suits you and where you can be totally relaxed.
Form a Meditation Habit
Meditation is the practice.
That means that when you first meditated, you should not feel discouraged if you do not succeed immediately.
Your mind may wander here and there, or even fall asleep.
Learning to meditate successfully is a long process and takes a lot of time.
If you want to speed up the process, you should make meditation a part of your daily life.
Start with a short amount of time, maybe five or even two minutes.
Soon you will feel more comfortable with this process and may spend more time meditating every day.
Learn How to Be Mindful and In the Moment
Being attentive means being more proactive about being aware of all the activities that are happening around you.
You consciously focus on emotions and feelings.
Being more attentive helps you keep pace with yourself and the world around you.
Spend Time Outside
Spending some time outside can be very helpful.
Being attentive helps you enlighten the third eye because you will be more aware of it.
So you can take a walk every day, spending more time enjoying nature.
In today's modern culture, we are “digitizing” too much in a day.
This means that we almost always look at electronics or communications.
Going out reminds us to actively rest and reduce stimuli.
Let Out Your Creative Side
Mindfulness can stimulate your creativity.
Research shows that mindfulness meditation brings a source of ideas for writers and artists and other creative experiences.
Being more mindful can help you expand your creative path.
You can join in painting, sketching, or learn to play new instruments.
Let the flow of creativity throughout you help you feel in tune with yourself, which will help in pineal gland activation.
Focus On the Little Things
Daily life can be quite busy and overwhelming.
Forming mindfulness helps you feel calmer and able to use the third eye effectively.
Pay attention to each aspect of your surroundings and your habits.
For example, when you are taking a shower, you may notice a sensation in your body.
Feel the steady flow of warm water on your shoulders or the scent of the shampoo radiating fragrance.
Limit and Cut Out Processed Foods Altogether
Our bodies are not designed to digest the amount of fat, carbohydrates, and sugars in fast food and convenience foods.
You will also benefit by reducing the consumption of animal meat due to the hormones in them.
Eat natural foods, vegetables, and fruits.
Replace canned foods you buy with whole foods like beans, nuts, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits.
Not only do they make you feel fuller, but they also help your body stay healthy and easier to digest.
Your diet is important because it directly affects your energy levels, hormones, as well as your feelings and thoughts.
Drink Herbs That Help Detox the Pineal Gland
Herbs are an effective way to correct your third eye.
Try herbs that contain Gotu kola, ginkgo Biloba, the rosemary, and passionflower.
I recommend Buddha Teas – a third-eye miracle tea (Chakra Tea) extracted from the essence of sapphire.
Avoid Water and Toothpaste With Fluoride
Studies have shown that fluoride, the chemical found in our drinking water and toothpaste can cause calcification of the pineal gland.
When your pineal gland is calcified, it will not work properly anymore.
In fact, after an MRI scan, I found out that my frontal lobe was actually partially calcified.
If you want to read a great article on decalcifying your pineal gland, check out this blog.
Discover Your Core Beliefs
Core Beliefs are the unconscious ideas you have about “Who you are” and “what you deserve in life.”
Your core belief keeps you locked in a constraint of thinking and keeps your third eye in a closed state.
Exercise and Drink Lots of Water
This one is quite easy to understand.
Drinking water will also help cleanse the toxins in your body and keep your brain clear.
(Just try to avoid fluoridated water), and exercising can help improve health, increase
resistance, and keep your body in a healthy state, boosting your spirits.
Keep a Diary and Record Your Feelings
One of the best ways to create clarity and inner order is through writing down your feelings.
Do this daily and you will experience many spiritual benefits from it.
Symptoms of Pineal Gland Activation
Here is a comprehensive list of signs that you have activated pineal gland.
