The pineal gland
The pineal gland (also called the pineal body or „epiphysis cerebri“) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. The pineal gland is
shaped like a tiny pine cone, hence its name. It produces few hormones, like melatonin, that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and
photoperiodic and seasonal functions. Also it is believed to produce natural '___' en.wikipedia.org...
The pineal gland is located near to the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres and it is the only part of the brain that is not double.
Unlike much of the rest of the brain, the pineal gland is not isolated from the body by the blood-brain barrier system.
This pineal gland is activated by light and dark and it 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.
The pineal gland's location deep in the brain seems to intimate hidden importance. 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
Today it is associated with the sixth chakra, the third eye, whose awakening is linked to prophecy and and increased psychic awareness as
consciousness ascends. When it awakens, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.

Our brain pulses and vibrates like everything in this Universe. The brain pulse is measured like sound in cycles per second or Hertz. The machine used
to make the measure is called an ElectroEncephaloGraph (EEG). While this machine has its limitation, we can still use it to categorize brain activity
with more or less accuracy. In the future, scientist will certainly come up with a more precise technology.
Brainwaves are categorized in 4 categories : Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.
Beta (13- 40 Hz)
Beta is associated with our waking activity. During a day we experience all the brainwave patterns with a predominance of Beta.
Alpha (8-13 Hz)
The first pattern discovered in 1908 by an Austrian Psychiatrist named Hans Berger. Alpha pattern appears when in wakefulness where there is a relaxed
and effortless alertness. Light meditation and day dreaming. It is recommend to practice your creative visualization and auto-suggestion technique in
Theta (4-7 Hz)
Associated with creativity, dreams and Extra-sensory perception for the student the theta state is something to learn to go at will.There are
countless ways to achieve this level, but i will state later...
Theta is simply the state where your ESP can operate. If you do the proper work you can learn to enter theta at will and perform most of the psychic
activities. I can tell you for example to go in theta to perform consciousness travel to read the aksha chronicles, but again this will follow in a
Delta (0.5 - 4 Hz)
Delta is associated with deep sleep, this pattern is very slow, however, this brain waves pattern is important for the explorer of consciousness. If
you work to merge with the mass consciousness of our planet you need to work in delta. The first step will be to learn to be conscious in your dreams,
you can do that, you can go further in the exploration. Astral projection or Out of Body experience occurs in Delta.
