Is the key for ascension the pineal gland?

In the world of religion, there is some attention being assigned to the issues for the pineal gland and the power for the human brain to function on higher levels.

In the world of religion, we find an appreciation for frankincense and here we find an association to making the pineal gland work better. The frankincense being one of the gifts of the Wise Men from Babylon to Jesus. Was there this deeper purpose to give Jesus the frankincense?

Even when one gets on down the history to the "Lord's Supper" and the "Last Supper" of Jesus we find the issues of Boron rich soils of Israel being part of the Lord's Supper foods of Wine and Grain (bread) and if one digs a little deeper one finds boron rich foods counter fluoride effects on the Pineal gland.

Dig some more and one finds that folks like Elijah settled at Mt. Carmel and an area with high Boron. Mt. Carmel was the origin for the Sons of Zadok, which became the first high priests in Solomon's temple. Dig even more and one finds that the Temple of Solomon was built over the Gihon Spring, which has Boron mineral and was the water for the Garden of the Kings. Dig a little deeper and one finds Mt. Carmel is also the site for the Essene temple and the roots for Essene mystery school teachings.

Elijah was close with the gods of Anu and considered much like Enoch, and both were taken away when the gods of Anu departed Earth. In times of Jesus we find his issues with the Mount of Olives, which is another boron loaded fruit, and the Garden there was the site for an Olive Oil press, and this used to anointing folks.

A Fluoride-Free Pineal Gland is More Important than Ever

Well, what does all this have to do with the pineal gland? A lot. It is considered a portal to the inner or higher self by yogi masters, including Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. Psychics consider it to be the link for inter dimensional experiences. It is associated with what many call the third eye or sixth chakra, which is a doorway to higher consciousness and bliss.

And it is vital for supporting intuition, an ability that will be needed during hard times. So it is necessary to evolve spiritually in order to help create better understanding, acceptance of our fellow humans, and easier group cooperation. Meditation is a part of this evolving. That and a little sunshine, good rest and food, can cause a calcified pineal gland to loosen up and allow that portal to open.


This information is meant to link the physical realm’s pineal gland to higher states of awareness and other realms. The point is not to advocate or discourage psychedelic drug use, but to encourage health, meditation and spiritual growth by maintaining a fluoride free pineal gland. 2012 is approaching. Time to get in shape

Is this a connection to those that appear to be waking from a long sleep that missed much of the important religious factors now driving the awareness of the human minds around the planet?

The Story for Jesus was one of his ascension into heaven from the Mount of Olives, which was opposite the corrupted temple in the times of the Pharisee and Sadducee. The story tells Jesus return will stem from this same site of the Mount of Olives. Even the story for Islam's founder Muhammad speaks to his ascension at Jerusalem, and thus the lands of boron rich food and water.

One has to be cautious with raisins because the pesticide used with grapes is fluoride based, so while one gets boron one also gets fluoride and any fluoride exposure isn't good. Fluoride exposures from wine used to be a serious health risk, until regulations started to correct the problems.

One also has to consider that in the US the soils are poor in boron and lots of other essential minerals, with the exception on Boron being around California and the grape / wine areas. Parts of California have too much Boron for grapes in some areas and just right in others.

So you are positing that simply eating right and smelling frankincense is the way to "ascension"?

I always figured it was a ladder, or stairs, or an elevator.

...Or, perish the thought, self reflection and improvement.

Eating right sure helps. But when it comes to the three gifts from the Wise Men of the East, the Frankincense and Myrrh stand out as rather special. Enoch tells the gods of Anu smelled like Myrrh and everything that had was dusted with it.

Then the old pics of the Anu have this pine cone looking thing and the Pineal gland is a little pine cone looking thing. The activator that helps it work are Frankincense and Boron.

Myrrh is the highest of all known antioxidant materials from plants, so it is automatically special. Frankincense appears related and just as special.

If one looks these were part of the ritual in Solomon's original temple, when the priests were Sons of Zadok, or linked with Elihah and thus Anu. I don't think the smell works too well, that was just symbolic of the gods of Anu, and one has to eat it to get its benefits on health and mind.

One can do a little reading, but somehow these two tree saps, that are essentially the immune system for trees, came back from the times of the gods of Anu as being super special and some worth more than gold in the old days.

It appears the Ascension is the process of highest level of thought or knowledge of the issues for gods of those times. When the human can think at the same intellectual level as the gods of Anu, the human has Ascended.

Certainly the properties of these two Gifts of the Magi appear able to improve the mind and enable good health and longevity. These appear to have been some of the most potent medicines of the old times.

These days Frankincense has many useful properties:

The Many Benefits of Frankincense Resin and Essential Oil


It is evident that frankincense holds historical and traditional significance. Research indicating the current medicinal value of Boswellia species is growing. Such positive initial results merit further investigation into potential clinical uses; it is now recognized that some of the ancient remedies may result in the creation of novel drugs. Such results also stir a sense of excitement and possibility for those seeking alternative treatments to debilitating and even life-suppressing illnesses. The value of frankincense was recorded as being a gift for the baby Jesus and is now a gift for modern people as well.

Then one can find Myrrh is highly special also.

The Benefits of Myrrh continue to Amaze Us!

What is the ORAC Value? 379,800 µTE/100g

Why know about this number? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions and cancer! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Blueberries = 2,400; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!

One must suspect that these properties of these two tree saps are able to help the brain work with more brain cells and longer memory retention, plus the stimulation of the Pineal Gland hormones adds a high dimension that appears missing these days.

And for Boron the benefits further increase:

Dietary boron, brain function, and cognitive performance.

When contrasted with the high boron intake, low dietary boron resulted in significantly poorer performance (p < 0.05) on tasks emphasizing manual dexterity (studies II and III); eye-hand coordination (study II); attention (all studies); perception (study III); encoding and short-term memory (all studies); and long-term memory (study I). Collectively, the data from these three studies indicate that boron may play a role in human brain function and cognitive performance, and provide additional evidence that boron is an essential nutrient for humans.

Boron seems to improve brain functions considerably, exceptionally so in fluoride use countries and other areas with endemic fluoride in the water or food chain, and many times coal heating chain. Boron is used to detox people from fluoride in their body.

And going back to the Holy Lands, where the Boron is rich in the water and food, the rates of arthritis are almost non-existant.

So, there are a number of indicators for these three items to highly enhance mental capacity.

The OP theme here isn't the first time that frankencense has been associated with ascension:

Frankincense has been used for over 5,000 years as a medicinal and spiritual oil. It is completely tied into the holiday season, used throughout biblical times and for thousands of years previous. It was used in ancient Egypt as one of the key oils for enhancing the ascension process, both for spiritual development and for medicinal purposes. It was considered a ceremonial oil by early Christians, and throughout the middle east and Africa. Its beneficial effects on the human energy field are well known by many cultures.

Frankincense also shows up in the 1st Temple methods:

David prayed: "Let my prayer be set forth before Thee as incense" (Psalm 141:2). As the smoke of the burning offering ascended up from the altar, so the people believed their prayers would go up to God with it, and it would be a sweet savor to Him. The typological meaning of burning incense as prayer rising up to God is seen even in the prophecies of Rev­elation. John saw "golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints" (Revelation 5:8). This surely gives us a clue as to the real signifi­cance of burning incense (especially its chief ingredient, frankincense) ris­ing up to God's throne. We pray, on the basis of the sin-cleansing sacrifice of the Lamb of God, and they rise up to the throne of God via the indwell­ing Spirit of God.

So, from the earliest of times in the Abraham religion, the issues of myrrh and frankincense are part of the rituals for ascension. The priests of Zadok (first temple) used frankincense burning in ascension processes.

Thus, the inner temple used the myrrh and frankincense burning to allow the ascension of prayers to god in heaven above. The gods of Anu valued these two items, thus the association. But Jesus abhored this process and the burned offerings that did similar with their smoke. Though Jesus valued the issues for frankincense and myrrh for healing.

Jesus methods sought to end these temple sacrafic games and set himself up as the way for ideas to get to god. Though the Essene's temple at Mt. Carmel was associated with the Elijah and much human sacarifice, the Essene abandoned the Elijah methods long before the 2 nd temple methods for animal sacrafice.

Jesus took up the frankincense and myrrh methods for ascension, and put down the burned offering methods as a pathway to god. The very gifts of the Magi was the beginning of the process of ascension.

Frankincense also has an association with long life, which the gods of Anu appeared to posess:

The brownish resin is the most common, the purest is white is called Hojary.
They steam distill the oil from the crystal resin. Frankincense was
referred to as manna, believed to sustain life and believed to drive away
evil deities of disease (we call it immune function). It stimulates the
pituitary, which produces Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which stimulates
the immune system. It is now being looked at by several universities. Primary
area for acquiring Frankincense today: Somalia.

It would appear that Frankincense is indeed considered special in these old times and well associated with the issues for gods and ascension.

It appears the special effects of Frankincense and Myrrh is associated with the compounds called "sesquiterpenes", which have beneficial effects on the pineal gland and others associated with the brain. It appears the sciences are connecting that sesquiterpenes cause the rise of HGH from the pituitary, which is highly important in human health and aging.

European studies have shown that essential oils high in sesquiterpenes, such as myrrh, (Commiphora myrrha), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), and sandalwood (Santalum album), oxygenate and stimulate the hypothalamus and pituitary glands.

Research presented in Grasse, France, in 1995 showed that when high-sesquiterpene essential oils are inhaled, they exert an extraordinary action on the limbic system of the brain, an area which comprises the hypothalamus, pituitary, and pineal glands. Brain scans revealed a dramatic increase in activity in the hypothalamic region of the brain following inhalation of the essential oils of frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood.

Another researcher, Alan Hirsch. M.D., Director of the Smell and Taste Research Foundation in Chicago has shown that several fragrances - including peppermint - exert a highly stimulating effect on the hypothalamus of the brain. Peppermint seems to act specifically on the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus, which regulates many basic drives, including the sense of satiety (the feeling of fullness generated by eating).

Your "sesquiterpenes" are classified as plant poisons.

Road to ascension?

Don't think so.

You mean like these?

Artemisinin, a new, highly-effective anti-malarial compound, is a sesquiterpene lactone found in Chinese wormwood. Lactucin, desoxylactucin, lactucopicrin, lactucin-15-oxalate, lactucopicrin-15-oxalate are some of the most prominent found in lettuce and spinach, giving most of the bitter taste to these crops.

Sesquiterpene lactone-containing plantsSome plants containing these compounds include


Ginkgo biloba

And what is Ginkgo well associated------enhanced brain function.

Next time you do a Google search try reading on the real research.

Food does not make one ascend.

Personal and inner work does that.

There is no magic bullet for ascension.

"Ascension" is a word often used in modern times to mean being better in being and thoughts.
Food does not do that,

Try thinking. You challenged that "sesquiterpenes" were poison, and I showed they are foodstuff. Thus, your claim rendered as silly.

Next, back to the theme of the OP is about the likes of Myrrh and Frankincense, where are not foods. They are the symbolism associated with an ascended person and ascended prayers. They link to pineal gland and other brain improvement factors.

Simply put, without the higher brain functions there is really an inabilty for ascension. One has to recall and reduce complex allegorical and metaphore in the bible to common sense associations.

Most would take note of the term "wormwood", which is of Bible significance for bitters and sesquiterpenes are bitter in taste. They are also protective of plant life, and in correct proportions, to human life.

Within-canopy sesquiterpene ozonolysis in Amazonia

Moreover, calculated sesquiterpene ozonolysis rates peaked during midday at a height
of ca. 20m above ground, suggesting that they are mainly determined by the high ozone
concentrations during the day. We conclude that ambient concentrations of
sesquiterpenes are not necessarily low because of low plant emissions, but rather high
ozonolysis rates which were unaccounted for in previous ambient air studies. Our
findings should help to better understand the environmental and biological controls on
the dynamics of chemical emission, loss, and transport of highly reactive species like
sesquiterpenes within canopies and their potential biological and atmospheric impacts.
In particular, our observations suggest that the fraction of emitted sesquiterpenes lost
within the canopy to ozonolysis could be large and that this process reduces ozone
concentrations thereby providing plants protection against exogenous reactive oxygen

So, as it applies to Bible issues the sesquiterpenes applied to the environmental problems that can well turn waters bitter due to enhance need of plants for sesquiterpenes. It also associates with myrrh and frankinscence being used medicinally as well as for the issues linked with ascension.

As Myrrh and Frankinscence are well associated with the gods of Anu, the term wormwood is the use of sesquiterpenes in plants, which also makes allegorical association with the gods of Anu.

Thus, the issues of sesquiterpenes, its action on the brain in terms of pineal, pituitary, et al, are important associations. Sesquiterpenes are also protective for plants from high ozone damage and will rise with ozone damage effects and UV-b factors. The sesquiterpenes levels may grow to affect water quality.

The uses of Myrrh and Frankincense were considered medicinal and helpful to human life and health. But when nature is pressed too far, the same plant mechanism can become a bigger issue in the environment as a whole.

So going back to my first post here, smelling the right things and eating the right foods bring "ascension" in your thinking?

ETA: I guess you are either on your road to "ascension" or have obtained it already since you claim to know the secrets?
