by Lucid Dream Society: There are certain techniques for pineal gland activation, that can enhance your lucid dreams, too…


But first, what is a Pineal Gland?

It is a pea-sized gland, that produces melatonin, a hormone which changes our sleep patterns, both in circadian and seasonal cycles.

The pineal gland, also called the “pineal eye” or “the third eye” is located near the center of the brain.

A closer look at the pineal gland

The so-called third eye manages the various bio-rhythms of the body.

It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which regulates 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 can be considered as playing a major role in every aspect of human function.

Additionally, the pineal gland contains photoreceptors just like our eyes.

It is actually activated by light transmitted through our two eyes.

The sunlight produces – Serotonin.
The darkness and the moon produces – Melatonin.

Pseudoscience theory

The pineal gland’s location deep in the brain seems to intimate deep importance.

The physiological purpose of the pineal gland was unknown till recent times.

That’s why for millennia, various religions considered the pineal gland as the connecting link between the physical and spiritual realm.

The pineal gland has always been essential in initiating spiritual experiences.

It is considered to be the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans.

Can the pineal gland be inactive or inert?

Your pineal gland is self-regulating, however, it can be inactive.

Like a lot of other functions in our bodies, pineal glad can be suppressed or disabled.

For instance, if you have a hard time to meditate, to lucid dream, or to have OBEs, it might be a sign that your pineal gland isn’t working on its full.

Also, if you have troubles in falling asleep, if you feel tired, anxious or depressed, this could be another sign.

Luckily, there are specific ways that can help you to actually activate your pineal gland in a matter of weeks. Find more about that below.

Pineal Gland Activation – 3 powerful exercises

In order for us to reach our deepest states of intuition, intelligence, and spiritual enlightenment, it is essential to activate our brain’s pineal gland.

1) Meditation

The most traditional method of opening your third eye is through meditation.

Practicing mindfulness is a great way to stimulate and grow our pineal gland’s functioning and abilities.

On top of that, meditating sends energy to the pineal gland.

This energy provides higher states of clarity and intuition for our conscious life.

Meditation also stimulates the chakra system of our brain and body which is responsible for managing and creating life-force energy.

On top of that, meditating sends energy to the pineal gland. This energy provides higher states of clarity and intuition for our conscious life.

Astonishing, isn’t it?

And it is easier than you think!

By placing your attention on the pineal gland, you will focus your inner energy in this region.

2) Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini awakening can trigger a wide range of phenomena. It offers a profound opportunity for those who follow a spiritual path.

This is a more advanced exercise, which can work to activate the pineal gland, as well as all of the body’s chakra points.

The Kundalini (“coiled one”) rests coiled in the lowest chakra of our spine.

It is a transducer of energy which rises up the spine through the practice until it reaches the pineal gland.

3) Brainwave Entrainment

Brainwave entrainment such as Binaural beats promotes a change in our brainwave patterns. It also has a therapeutic effect.

Binaural beats are two different tones of frequencies, played at the same time, separately to each ear.

They are brainwave entertainment technology designed to put our brain into different states.

These beats will provide the easiest way to experience mindfulness, as well as to activate your pineal gland!

Binaural beats are scientifically proven to work, and the best part is that they are a completely natural way to effortlessly achieve deep states of meditation.

There is not a straight answer which brainwave patterns support pineal gland activation.

However, we can focus on which brainwave frequencies are harmonious with the production of the pineal gland’s main chemical – melatonin:

  • The brain waves we encounter during deep, dreamless sleep are delta waves.
  • Additionally, the active frequency during REM stage of sleep are – theta and gama waves.

Taking this into consideration, use binaural beats that activate delta, theta, and gamma frequencies.

The pineal gland and the Spirit Molecule (DMT)

The Spirit Molecule or DMT (dimethyltryptamine) is a psychedelic drug.

However, DMT is also naturally produced in the pineal gland!

DMT is psychoactive, causing changes in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior.

It is produced during deep meditation, birth, sexual ecstasy, intense physical stress, and near-death experiences.

A very tiny amount of DMT is produced by the pineal gland every night while we dream. 

Many spiritualists believe to be secreted in big quantities at the moments of birth and death.

It is said that through third eye meditation, the third eye is activated.

Additionally, DMT can be released, whereas you can gain access to higher realms.

DMT links the body and spirit because of its relationship to ­visionary experiences.

People experience nonordinary states of transcendent consciousness.

Lastly, an interesting fact is that DMT is similar to the properties of LSD.

However, DMT is naturally occurring in our bodies whereas LSD is a synthetic drug.

How to detoxify your pineal gland:

It is essential to clear your pineal glad of blockages and decalcify it if you plan to awake your third eye.

If you force your third eye to awaken prematurely, you are very likely to become very vulnerable to mental attacks.

It is important to mention that the pineal gland is not protected by the blood-brain barrier.

Therefore, it does not have an additional defense against harmful toxins that access the bloodstream.

Furthermore, specific toxins are undoubtedly confirmed to have negative effects on the pineal gland.


Also, they can weaken its abilities.

One toxin is synthetic fluoride.

It shows to have harmful effects on the pineal gland as well as numerous other organs of the body.


An increase of fluoride in the pineal gland makes it harden.

This results in decreased melatonin production, disturbed wake-sleep regulation and inhibits the ability to allow psychic insight.

There are 2 main sources from where we are most likely getting synthetic fluoride – toothpaste and tap water.

Even though it is a controversial topic, varieties of studies have shown the downsides of synthetic fluoride.

Furthermore, if you want to detoxify your pineal gland, here are 3 main things that you can start with:

1) Stop using fluoride toothpaste

The fact is that a lot of toothpaste are containing added fluoride.

This is why your first step is to find a toothpaste without the added fluoride.

Also, you can take a look at this study, where the British scientist Jennifer Luke discovered high concentrations of fluoride in the pineal gland of her subjects.

2) Filter your water naturally

If you are drinking tap water, there is a high chance that the water contains fluoride.

Moreover, if you live in the United States and your source of water comes from a public water supply, there’s a 74% chance your water has fluoride.

The easiest way to filter your water is with charcoal sticks, like these on Amazon. This is a well-known Japanese method, that absorbs the impurity from the water naturally!

It is important to mention that you should differentiate the natural fluoride and synthetic fluoride.

If the fluoride is organic and natural, received from plant sources, such as vegetables, it is a healthy essential mineral.

The essential part is to try to avoid synthetic fluoride as much as possible.

3) Whole or/and raw foods

Try to say away from processed food, sugar and dairy as much as you can.

Focus on unprocessed and fresh food.

There are numerous options for detoxifying our brain’s pineal gland.

Theoretically, foods that boost oxygen and immune function should support pineal gland calcification.

Furthermore, foods energized with sunlight should also help healthy pineal gland functioning.

Foods that specifically support and activate the pineal gland:

  • turmeric, cacao beans, green plants and vegetables, wild harvested spring water, reishi mushroom tea, grass juices, beets, apple cider vinegar.

For more details, check the next part, where we talk about more foods and supplements.

Foods and supplements that activate the pineal gland

These products were proven to support decalcification, toxin removal, and tissue renewal.

If you decide to try any of these scientifically-proven supplements, do your own further research.

Do not misconstrue these bits of advice as a medical word.

1) Iodine – It is an essential supplement for pineal gland detox.

According to Dr. Mark Siccus, taking iodine instantly enhances the elimination of fluoride and some other heavy metals.

Important note:
Increased iodine intake might decrease your calcium levels. Be sure to eat calcium-rich foods, such as kale, flax seeds, broccoli, etc.

2) Turmeric

A study proves that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can block and possibly convert the harm from fluoride exposure.

The study concludes that turmeric significantly reduces the toxic effect of fluoride by increasing the antioxidant defense.

3) Raw cacao

Various controlled studies confirm that raw cacao supports decreasing blood pressure and improves blood vessel health.

Larger blood vessels mean more blood flow and oxygen make its way to the pineal gland, maintaining healthier functioning and detox.

Raw cacao is also loaded with antioxidants!

4) Tamarind

Studies showed that tamarind raised the elimination of fluoride in urine.

The researchers consider that it might reverse the effects of skeletal fluorosis caused by ingesting fluoride.

Another study shows that a mixture from the tamarind fruit shell can be used to de-fluoridate groundwater.


5) Raw Apple Cider Vinegar – a natural metal detoxifier!

Malic acid binds with toxins and helps the body remove them more efficiently.

While its natural vitamins and minerals renew your body with necessary nutrients, the malic acid detoxifies heavy metals.

Apple cider vinegar also helps cleanse the body and supports the necessary circulation for removing toxins.

6) Green Superfoods

Raw, green superfoods that are rich in chlorophyll help eliminate heavy metals from your blood while nourishing it.

Chlorella, spirulina, and wheat grass are chlorophyll-dense foods.

They will also increase oxygen levels, repair damaged tissue, and boost the immune system.

Some benefits of opening the third eye

Gain the ability to lucid dream and astral travel

An awakened third eye will result in a higher level of awareness.

This superior awareness will allow you to ”keep yourself awake” even when your body is asleep.

Furthermore, you will be able to experience amazing lucid dreams, astral travels and out of body experiences!

Free from stress, anxiety or worry

A higher level of consciousness will allow you to increase the vibration of your thoughts.

Higher vibrational thinking is focused on the present moment.

Feelings such as anxiety and stress are focused on the future or the past.

Series of anxiety and stress will end and you’ll instead experience the bliss of being in the present moment.

Awaken your higher intuition

You will unveil another layer of reality you didn’t know was there before.

Opening your third eye will give you the access to a higher level of understanding.

You will feel a higher connection between your spirit and your conscious mind.

Control the power of the law of attraction, manifesting the life you desire

This is centered on the present moment, too.

You will be able to manifest your desires by imagining you have it. You will also have a clear vision of what you want.

With an open third eye, you can expect a much more vivid vision that is centered on the present moment.

Furthermore, you will be able to take hold and draw the law of attraction.

Pineal gland activation – The Third Eye Meditation Guide

Important note

Developing a non-attached, present, centered, balanced state is essential to opening the third eye.

It depends on some factors, but The Third Eye Meditation is a skill that can take up to a few months of practice to master.

If you are completely new to meditation, or you would like some extra support, listen to the binaural beats below, while you meditate.

Using the binaural beats, you will reach a deep meditation state that will stimulate the third eye region.

The Third Eye Meditation guide:

Before you start, be sure that no one will bother you the next 10-30 minutes.

Also, you can put your phone on airplane mode, so nobody will be able to call and interrupt you.

1. Find a comfortable place

Sit on the ground in the lotus position/cross-legged.

If this is not comfortable for you, then just lay down or sit on a chair. And be sure you are all relaxed, with some comfy clothing.

2. Relax

Start relaxing each muscle in your body, from your toes til your head.

Visualize and focus on each muscle.

3. Start focusing on your breath

Allow your breath to become deep and slow.

Do not force anything, just naturally slow your breathing down.

4. Focus on the Third eye

With your eyes still closed, draw your attention and your eyes to the center point of your Third eye.

Simply rest your attention on the third eye region – just above and between your two eyes.

5. Stay relaxed

Even if you have thoughts, coming across your mind, just acknowledge this fact. Do not force to empty your mind.

The key is to remain relaxed.

Let go of wanting or expecting any results. This may cause tension or block the flor of the energy.

6. Golden white lights /  A ball of energy

If you wish, you can start imagining that you’re breathing a golden white light through the center of your third eye.

Some people imagine a ball of energy, too.

Focus on this point for the next 10-30 minutes. If you don’t want to imagine these, simply keep your focus between your two eyes.
