The human brain is such a phenomenon, and well worth admiring, but for now we will focus on the Pituitary Gland + Pineal Gland.
The endocrine system consists of various glands situated in different parts of the body and each gland produces different hormones which regulate the activity of other organs and tissues in the body. These hormones are released directly into the blood through the relevant gland.
The pituitary gland is called the ‘master gland’ as the hormones it produces control so many different processes in the body. It senses the body’s needs and sends signals to different organs and glands throughout the body to regulate their function and maintain an appropriate environment. It secretes a variety of hormones into the bloodstream which act as messengers to transmit information from the pituitary gland to distant cells, regulating their activity.
For example, the pituitary gland produces prolactin, which acts to induce milk production in females. The pituitary gland also secretes hormones that act on the adrenal glands, thyroid gland, ovaries and testes, which in turn produce other hormones. Through production of it’s hormones, the pituitary gland controls metabolism, growth, sexual maturation, reproduction, blood pressure and many other vital physical functions and processes.
The pineal gland (also known as the "third eye") is a small endocrine gland. It produces melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and photoperiodic (seasonal) functions. It is located near to the center of the brain between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join. Unlike much of the rest of the brain, the pineal gland is not isolated from the body by the blood-brain barrier system. It is reddish-gray and about the size of a pea (8 mm in humans).
While the physiological function of the pineal gland has been unknown until recent times, mystical traditions and esoteric schools have long known this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in initiating supernatural powers. Development of psychic talents has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision.
The third eye controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it "awakens", one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.
The pineal gland becomes calcified over time due to toxic build up of things like fluoride, which is in most toothpastes as well as our drinking water. It is also the active ingredient in rat poison. Fluoride keeps the population docile and disconnected from source and their higher self. It is very important to decalcify the pineal gland as part of your Emergence and spiritual awakening!
Everything is connected, and in order to achieve balance we need to understand how our brain functions, and what we can do to take proper care of it so that it lasts us a lifetime. Unfortunately, as you know, many people do not and that leads to diseases like Alzheimer’s.
TOXINS TO AVOID:
I’m sure that you are now able to see how the Mind and Spirit are connected. We know that the mind and the body are connected, because the mind controls the functions of the body, but we can also see how the spirit controls the functions of the mind, especially if we detoxify and tune in.
Awakening your consciousness is the best step you can take in the direction of manifesting your desires, because once you are aware of how to align yourself, you can begin taking strides towards your goals from a stable, secure operating base---YOU!
