In this post I’d like to look at a video which was sent to me in an email shortly after writing about the Eyeland in Surfing the Rainbow Wave. It’s a short video about the Pineal Gland/3rd Eye which covers many of the main points I wanted to discuss in future posts.
The guy in this video (whose name is ‘Tamid_Ascended’) seems to know what he’s talking about in regards to the Pineal Gland, and I personally had a good overall feeling about the way he interprets it. So here it is for anyone interested:
Hope you enjoyed it! One of the reasons I wanted to include this clip is because the Eyeland makes an appearance in the background. Considering that this is a video about the 3rd Eye/Pineal Gland I thought the reference to the Eyeland seemed very appropriate:
The guy in the video (Tamid_Ascended) suggests that we don’t need any external source to activate the Pineal Gland and that we’re all perfectly capable of opening the 3rd Eye right NOW.
I agree with everything he has to say, and yet at the same it seems to go against everything that I’ve been discussing here on this Blog. I’m not saying that either interpretation is correct, but I am left wondering about this Paradox.
I’ve suggested that the arrival of our Twin Sun (Sirius), or the ‘sweet influence’ of the Pleiades, is going to help influence this Awakening, or Pineal Activation (or whatever else you want to call it). Tamid_Ascended suggests that we don’t need any outside influence in order to open this Pineal Stargate. I think both interpretations feel right and yet this catalyst can’t come from the Outside and from the Inside at the same time…or can it?
While chewing this over I’ve wondered if this Coming Together is going to happen within and without, both at the same time. As we reach towards the Stars for answers, do the Stars mirror our actions and reach deep inside of us, flicking a switch within the very codons of our DNA, and igniting the ‘Inner Sun’ found within the centre of the brain? By reaching up are we actually reaching deep inside ourselves? Is there any difference between the two, and why is all this stuff so confusing!?!
So many questions and yet few answers seem forthcoming. One thing I do feel confidant in stating is that the Pineal Gland is an important piece of his jigsaw puzzle, and I’d like to recall a personal experience which helped solidify my belief in the 3rd Eye.
I first learned about the 3rd Eye/Pineal Gland when I became a Reiki Practitioner about 6 years ago. Until that point in time I’d never read anything which could be considered New Age or Spiritual, and I knew nothing about the Chakras, Meridians, Aura etc. All of these things where completely new concepts for me. These things have been talked about for hundreds/thousands of years and yet they’d completely passed me by until my early twenties.
I didn’t believe in any of these New Age concepts at first because they just didn’t fit in with the way I perceived myself and the world around me. It was a little too ‘woo woo’ for my liking, but after a series of unusual events I found myself booking a course to become a Reiki Practitioner, something I never saw myself doing in a million years!
After becoming a Reiki Practitioner and giving family members healing treatments I knew that something was definitely happening (on some level) because my hands would become very hot while placed on the persons body. People referred to my hands as ‘hot irons’ so I started questioning my previous beliefs. I entered into Reiki with an open mind and found that there was much more to it than I’d first imagined.
Although I couldn’t explain what was happening while I gave a healing treatment, I now had my first taste of something Spiritual. My New Age skepticism was beginning to wane but this only came about because I’d had first hand experience. I’d dipped my big toe into the pool of the Unknown, and although I wasn’t ready to go swimming in it, I’d discovered that it was comfortable, inviting even, and I was curious to see what would happen if I explored it a little further.
So I read up on various New Age subjects and the more I consumed, the more this esoteric knowledge fascinated me. I’d been reading about the 3rd Eye for about 4/5 years when and I finally felt comfortable enough to bring it up in conversation with my older brother while standing around a barbecue one Summers night.
I’ve always looked up to my older brother and always respected his judgment, but when I brought up the topic of the 3rd Eye he simply laughed. His eyes started to roll as I told him what I’d read on the subject, and he made it clear that he wasn’t buying any of it. I felt an invisible wall go up between us as he looked at me like I’d completely lost the plot. I realized that if my own brother was going to ridicule these new Spiritual beliefs, then how on Earth would a complete stranger react.
For obvious reasons I decided to keep my mouth shut about anything which could be considered ‘woo woo’. Reiki gradually faded out of my life as I started to lose confidence in discussing it with people. Being labeled for my beliefs wasn’t high up on my agenda and the Spiritual climate where I lived in Scotland was ‘frosty’ to say the least.
Because I respected my brothers opinion I actually took his skepticism on board and wondered if I was deluding myself. Where the chakras, subtle energy bodies, 3rd Eyes and all the rest of it just fantastical concepts to try and make our world seem more magical? Or was it all a load of BS? I didn’t dismiss everything I’d read because I’d experience things while practicing Reiki which defied logic, but the seeds of doubt had been sown.
About a year after the conversation with my brother and going through something of a ‘Spiritual Slump’ I had my first 3rd Eye experience. It came completely unannounced while lying in bed one night, and effectively turned everything upside down. I can only liken it to an adult waking up on Christmas Eve and finding Santa tip-toeing out of the bedroom. It changed everything in an instant.
That night I went from ‘believing’ there was such a thing as a 3rd Eye to suddenly ‘knowing’, and I think there’s a vast difference between the two. When you ‘know’ something is real due to first hand experience all doubts about it’s existence fall away. All the skepticism which I’d been holding onto for the past year was released in the space of 10-20 minutes. It was quite an ‘eye opener’, in more ways than one.
The experience started with a tingling sensation around the eyes and cheekbones, like mini pins and needles, and then a pressure started to develop around my scalp and forehead. I wondered: what the hell is going on here?
I relaxed my body, lying there completely absorbed in the moment, and then something ‘popped’. There on my forehead I could feel a ball of ‘something’. I’d refer to it as a ‘ball of energy’ but that’s a little vague and doesn’t really describe the sensation. Come to think of it there’s not many words that would do it justice. All I know is that something tangible had just made itself known to me which I’d never ever felt before.
As the sensations seemed to become more heightened the ‘ball’ started to swivel/rotate. I’d never read about this in any kind of Spiritual/New Age book, so I was surprised to say the least. I lay still and focused my attention on the unusual feelings which where predominantly around my head. At the same time I could also feel similar sensations in other areas of my body as if they where all somehow connected.
There were muscle spasms in places I had no control over - in my shoulder, around my temples, on my cheeks. These where places I couldn’t make ‘twitch’ even if I tried. There was heat accompanied by a feeling of vibration, or waves, down the centre of my body. There was a whole series of things which took place (many of which I can’t even recall) but it all seemed to be triggered by the feelings in and around my forehead. It seemed to have instigated the whole thing.
About 10/15 minutes passed and the feelings eased off. The experience slipped away and I was left with a buzz of adrenaline and the feelings of WTF. I was about to wake my partner up to tell her about it, but decided to leave her sleeping. I told her the next morning but that night I let a thousand thoughts buzz around my head. It was like I’d just caught Santa in the act, and there was no turning back. I now had the direct experience of the 3rd Eye opening, and I now knew without a shadow of a doubt that it was real.
This wasn’t the last time I’ve experienced these feelings, and to this day they still ebb and flow in and out of my life, often when I least expect them. It feels like that first time opened some kind of Doorway and every so often it decides to swing open.
That first experience gave me a renewed confidence in my own intuition, and I knew from then on that I would listen to what other people had to say about Spiritual matters, but I would never let their opinions override my own. I learned to trust my own gut instinct and to find my own truth in the most powerful way I can think of – first hand experience.
Many people I’ve encountered in life have point blank denied the existence of the 3rd Eye and the Chakras. They’ve point blank denied that there’s anything Spiritual in this world, and I know for a fact that they would deny everything I’ve written on this Blog had I given them the chance to read it. Many people are quite happy not kNOWing about these things (and I completely respect everyone's free will), but over the last few years I’ve noticed that this is gradually beginning to change. The ‘tides are turning’ so to speak, and people do seem to be embracing Spirituality as this ‘New Age Wave’ begins to gather momentum as we approach 2012.
Whether an outside/inside force is helping activate the Pineal Gland within each of us, or not, there does seem to be an Awakening of some sort taking place and we all seem to be an integral part of it. Like Tamid_Ascended suggests in the Pineal Stargate video: the more we focus our attention on the 3rd Eye/Pineal Gland, the more we begin to resonate with this ‘Inner Sun’, and the closer we come to activating it.
It might have taken me 26 years before I had my first 3rd Eye experience but I believe that things are speeding up as we approach the year 2012, and I believe that this Global Awakening is going to become progressively quicker as time goes on. Maybe it’s due to an influx of Kosmic Energy from the stars around us, or maybe it’s due an influx of energy within ourselves. Maybe they’re both one and same.
Regardless of where these Kosmic Energies originate from, it seems to be happening in synchronization with some kind of Divine Time-Table. I believe that we’re all scheduled into it somewhere, so if you haven’t directly experienced the opening of your 3rd Eye, then it may be on the horizon. Like my own experience you might find that it comes like a stranger in the night…or a visit from Santa. Who knows what kind of gift he’ll leave you with. :)
I’d like to finish off with a quick sync story. Shortly after watching the Pineal Gland video above, and noticing the reference to the Eyeland, I came home from work and found that my daughter had plundered my old comic book collection and had left one of them sitting out on the couch. The cover had been ripped off (thanks to my destructive 2 year old son!) but I took it as a sign to check it out.
I’d bought this particular comic in my early teens and it had sat in a storage box for well over 13 years. It happened to be a Silver Surfer comic which I found very appropriate considering I’d only uploaded my Surfing the Rainbow Wave post a day or two beforehand.
In the Pineal Stargate video Tamid_Ascended had stated that he had helped stimulate the 3rd Eye of his skeptical friend simply by placing a finger to his forehead and remaining in the NOW.
So as I curiously turned a couple of pages of the comic I came across the Red Hand, and noticed that the finger was pointing straight at the 3rd Eye of the Silver Surfer:
I noticed in the images above that the Crown Chakra of the Tin Man was glowing brightly as result of this 3rd Eye ‘stimulation’.
Then in the next panel I noticed that the Light on his Crown moves to the region of his 3rd Eye as he accepts the challenge. The Surfer realizes that it’s TIME to awaken:
It then came as no surprise to find that the person who placed his finger on the Surfers 3rd Eye and issued the challenge was a character named Warlock. Here we see him carrying the Caduceus Staff – the Spine which the Kundalini Serpent rises up in order activate the Pineal Gland:
I’ve connected the 3rd Eye to the Hand Print many times now in previous posts, so it was interesting to find that the Eye/Hand could be found in the movie ‘DragonBall Evolution’ (thanks James Ratte for pointing this out):
Dragonball Evolution encouraged me to look at another movie which features the word EvolutiON in the title. I found a reference to…you guessed it:
The Smiley Face suggests that our current Evolution is a positive thing. It’s going to make us happy. I’ve recently written about the Smiley Face over on the Synchromysticism Forum so if you’re interested in more Smiley syncs please check out my post called Smiley Faced Clones.
The Evolutionary process we’re currently going through seems to be focused in the region of the 3rd Eye (as suggested by the poster above), so if we look at the title of the Silver Surfer comic then it might help shed some more light on the matter:
On Dictionary.com I found that Genesis means:
1. the act of producing, or giving birth or origin to anything
2. a coming into being
3. the first book of the Old Testament: tells of Creation; Adam and Eve; the Fall of Man; Cain and Abel; Noah and the flood
This suggests that as we move forwards into the future we’re simultaneously going to begin reaching back through time, tapping into the ‘origins’ of who we truly are/where. In order to Evolve we seem to be Devolving. It all seems to be connected to something which has been lying dormant within our
In the (OZ) Osho Zen Tarot cards we see that the final card in the Major Arcana is entitled ‘Completion’. When we find the last piece of the Jigsaw within ourselves, we’ll finally ‘Come into Being’ and begin to see the bigger picture. Notice that the last piece of the puzzle is shaped like an Eyeland:
In the next post I’m going to crack open the Egg and take a look inside the brain to find out what the Seahorse can teach us about (Silver) Surfing the Waves via the Pineal Gland.
Thanks for reading!
**Updates: In the Pineal Stargate video Tamid_Ascended referred to the Pineal Gland as a Remote Control. We press the buttons on it to change frequency/channel. I just checked out Jakes latest post over at The Blob entitled All Buttoned Up, and found references to the Smiley Face (seen above linked to the Evolution), countless Eye references…and of course the Remote Control. Well worth checking out!
One last thing. While watching the TV tonight I paused to take note of this advert for Honda. In this video notice the Dogs in the intro, the Horse which transitions into the Sea (think Sea Horse), and pay attention to the lyrics. Also notice the theme of Evolution: a Bike evolves into a Car which evolves into a Boat which evolves into a Hot Air Balloon. Is it just me or is there a message in here somewhere:
The Impossible Dream lyrics (Honda advert):
This is my quest, to follow that Star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right, without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell for a Heavenly cause
And I know if I'll be true to this glorious Quest
To reach the unreachable Star.
