The medical profession describes the pineal gland as being:
“a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain that produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.” Waking Times
The pineal gland closes as soon as the baby’s sexual organs are developed. It stops growing in early childhood and calcifies/hardens by age 17 in most cases.
In New Age and Occultic belief systems, such as Kundalini, the pineal gland is referred to as the “third eye”, the seat of the soul, the place in the mind from which to access a spiritual gateway to other realms and dimensions. It is sometimes referred to as the “all-seeing eye”, and a “bridge to divine consciousness”. This third eye is said to be awakened by meditation, visualization, and chanting.
Here is a pastor (Pastor Armstrong) who ministers to at-risk youth and young adults through prison ministry. I like that he is making his flock aware of these dangers and just how satan tricks people to get them caught up in these traps. Sadly many churches are doing the opposite, they are actually teaching the people in their practices which open these spiritual doors to satanic and demonic access. Centering prayers, “meditation” chanting, “spiritual mantra’s”. This video will also help you understand why the superbowl halftime shows, Madonnna concerts, Olympic opening and closing ceremonies contain the content that they do. This is an invocation. An invitation for the demonic spirits. Serious, dangerous stuff. The latter part of the first video, and the beginning of the second one, may cause you to stop and re-think the atmosphere now being created in “praise and worship” in a lot of churches today!
A good video for young people to watch, but really, any age.
