Awakening My Third Eye

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” ~Henry David Thoreau

We can see, hear, smell, taste and touch the reality around us, our physical senses actualizing what we have visualized from our thoughts into existence… but did you know that there are many other metaphysical senses that can be experienced to experience our reality?  Intuition is a common one. It is the concept that refers to one receiving information metaphysically (not through the 5 senses) such as clairvoyance, precognition, etc. We have called these hunches or gut feelings. They are inexplicable circumstances… or are they?

We all have a pineal gland or more commonly known as a third eye. It is a pea-sized gland that sits directly in the center of your brain between the hemispheres, close to the pituitary gland. It gets its name from its shape which resembles a pine cone.  pineal-diagram

It has physical functions such as controlling your body’s sleep-wake pattern by producing melatonin. It has also traditionally been considered to be the seat of higher consciousness and a link to the metaphysical world. Due to a standard diet, water supply, chemical intake from everyday products and the environment, the average person’s pineal gland is calcified. A blocked pineal gland is associated with several disorders as well as inhibited enzyme function. Resulting effects include:

  • weight gain or obesity
  • slow thyroid
  • digestive disorders
  • kidney trouble
  • poor circulation
  • confusion
  • loss of sense of direction
  • mood or mental disorders
  • lack of vision
  • lowered IQ

This however, as all things are, is temporary. There are many practices one can do to awaken their third eye. Dreams, synchronicities and quantum manifestation are among the few experiences that increase as one’s pineal gland comes out of dormancy. Along with this comes discernment, psychic awareness and an expanded mind capacity.

My Top Practices to Awaken the Third Eye:

Before I go into details, let me reiterate that this is my own personal practice derived from research and experience. I am not licensed or certified as a health practitioner. As with everything, practice common sense.

  1. Sungazing – Within an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset, I ground myself by standing barefoot either in grass, dirt or the cement sidewalk whilst staring directly into the sun. The length of time varies anywhere between 1 to 15 minutes depending on the circumstance but I do prefer gazing for 5 minutes every morning to start my day. I speak to the my guides, my angels and the universe at this time, expressing my gratitude and sending blessings, protection and healing to my loved ones, everyone I know and to everyone that I have not met yet.

     

  2. Meditation – I set aside at least 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening to sit up comfortably in bed, a couple pillows to rest on and my headset tuned brainwavesinto iDoser, an app for listening to binaural beats used to stimulate and simulate. I burn Palo Santo around me to cleanse the energy. At times I will burn incense or apply Frankincense essential oil to my  heart, throat, brow and crown chakras. I then take several deep cleansing breaths before counting my breaths. I find that when I count my breath, I become my breath.

  3. Mindfulness – Most of us live on a task-based schedule. We wake up, we go to work, we eat, we bathe, we drive, we do chores, we socialize, we pay bills, we sleep…. and repeat hundreds of times over. We meander through our day like zombies accomplishing one mundane task after another. Our mental body overwhelming our emotional body to submission until there is nothing left but a robotic vessel awaiting its next assignment, chalking up the last one. We are too often thinking about what already happened or what could happen. mind-full-mindfulThe past is merely one’s best recollection of their memories whilst the future is one’s best guess of what is yet to come. Whether I am driving, listening, eating or the like, I immerse myself in the beauty of the experience as it is happening. Each moment a unique one with limitless possibilities for growth. I don’t just sit, I feel the warmth of the chair against my clothes which comforts my skin. I don’t just listen, I become the words and visualize their energy as it enters my ears. I don’t just eat, I savor the taste. To summarize, mindfulness is living in the present moment involving all senses for the ultimate experience.
  4. Chemical Awareness – Too many people are counting calories when they really should be counting the chemicals. The foods we eat play an important role in the levels of toxins in our body. As food is ingested, energy from that food is ingested as well. Be mindful of what you put into your body and how it affects your vibration.

    Pesticides, artificial ingredients, hormones, other contaminants enter from bad food into the blood stream and flow directly to the pineal gland. Calcification occurs as a protective guard against these harmful chemicals. Low frequency foods draw electrical energy away from your cells causing cell death. This can manifest itself as depression, lethargy, apathy and negativity. These include microwaved or fast foods, canned goods, sugars, additives and soda. High frequency foods create happy, healthy cells. You will notice an increase in energy, clarity, creativity and positive feels such as love, peace and harmony.

  5. Fluoride – There is a great deal of speculation as to what causes calcification of the pineal gland. Fluoride in water and toothpaste has been implicated in this process. Municipal water in the USA has been treated with a toxic form of fluoride for more than half a century. Many people have accumulated sodium fluoride in the pineal gland. To reverse this, get rid of fluoride, and you can start with your drinking water. Purchase a reverse osmosis system (I got mine from Lowe’s for under $300) or get well or spring water if you can.

     

  6. Supplements – Cow’s milk does a body good… if you are a calf. We have been led to believe many lies for the sake of sales and greed. Similar to caring for my vehicle with oil changes, tire rotations and check-ups to ensure proper functionality, I take care of my spiritual vehicle with supplements.  Below is a recipe for my weekday drink.

    1. Squeeze an organic lemon into a 12 oz cup

    2. Add warm water, always pure, never fluoridatedBoroninfographic

    3. Add 1/2 cap of Boron (eliminates arthritis!) and 1/2 cap of Magnesium

    4. Add 2 drops of Lugol’s 2% iodine

    5. Add 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey, Manuka Honey being my favorite

    6. Add a dash of turmeric

    7. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper

    8. Add 1/4 teaspoon colloidal silver

    Optional for improved cognitive functions:

    9. Add 1 scoop of L-Theanine 

    10. Add 1 scoop of Huperzine A

    I also ingest a lot of dark chocolate raw cacao nibs, raw apple cider vinegar and cilantro. Weekly detox baths are refreshing… it extracts the toxins whilst soaking in essential minerals. The hot bath includes 1 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of Epsom Salt, 1/2 cup of Himalayan pink salt and 10 drops of tea tree oil. Playing dolphin healing sounds in the background is an added bonus!

  7. Letting Go – I AM a strong believer that everything chakra_cordshappens for a reason. I am exactly where I need to be for my spiritual growth. With this comes the
    innerstanding that all experiences, whether deemed positive or negative, come with purpose. Everyone we come across, whether deemed positive or negative, come with purpose as well. Each and every interaction binds us energetically to one another and remains connected until it is severed. These connections are referred to as karmic cords. When we hold on to an experience, we are mindfully binding ourselves to the person(s) involved. Forgiveness is the act of breaking free from those binding chains that no longer serve us.  cutting cordsThe practice of forgiveness brings immediate relief. It literally is a weight off of one’s shoulders. Before going to bed, visualize all the interactions you have had for the day and in your mind’s eye, sever the ties that bind, be grateful for the experience and release it with blessing and grace.

  8. Crystals – Crystals are alive. They are conscious. They think, they receive, they give, they remember. They are high vibrational sentient beings. Not only do I feel their energy, connections with certain ones allows one to hear them as well. Meditating with crystals around me and on my chakra points have assisted in my spiritual growth by connecting me energetically to such a high vibration. I also surround myself in orgone to assist with further decalcification, especially around EMF emitted from cell phones, computers, routers, etc.

There are many different practices to increase one’s awareness and awaken the third eye. It is imperative to innerstand that love is the root of everything. Loving oneself is not selfish as one must be selfish to be selfless.

♥ Above all things, practice love. ♥

May your moments be filled with joy and serenity. May your lives be blessed with abundance. May your bodies be cleansed of fears.

BE the lighthouse.

raise (v.)  c. 1200, "cause a rising of; lift upright, set upright; build, construct," from a Scandinavian source, such as Old Norse reisa "to raise," from Proto-Germanic*raizjan (source also of Gothic ur-raisjan, Old English ræran "to rear;" Meaning "make higher" is from c. 1300 in the physical sense, as is that of "restore to life."

There are many topics related to raising children with awareness… introducing them to crystals, meditation, healthy lifestyles, compassion, astronomy to name a few. These can easily be integrated throughout the child’s life starting at an early age…  but what about those of us that have raised children prior to our own personal spiritual awakening?

As we change, should they change?

10842248_10204132425525137_87238178242477121_oAs a single mother at the age of 19 in a new culture, I was not fearful, I was excited. I was far from my first home, the Philippines, but my childhood allowed me to be an independent, strong-willed and shoot-for-the-stars type of person. Although I cannot recall most of my past due to a head-on motorcycle collision at the age of 16, I remember the emotions and drive that was instilled in me. I was taught to be passionate but not what to be passionate about.

Fast forward 10 years later, I had my second son. 222757_1042185409138_5757_nI was in my second marriage at the time, which has now become my second divorce. Although the situations of raising my children were significantly different, the methodology and process was similar. The main difference of raising my two children is the support you have from a partner. Although it is not necessary, it is invaluable. No matter what the changes were that occurred in my life, which are inevitable, the one thing that was constant  was me.

I AM the ever-changing constant.

Throughout our lives, our environment changes, our desires and passions change, who we surround ourselves with change and our responsibilities change. As the external factors change, our internal factors change as well. These are our fears, our intentions, our strengths and our challenges. There is a melding of constant change between the outer world, everything outside of us, and our inner world, all that is within your thoughts, your heart, your spirit.

External factors cause internal changes, causing external changes.

On Christmas Eve in 2013, I arrived home to find Patches, one of our 946099_10201873410051162_747213546_nAustralian shepherds, missing her front right leg. After many hours looking for signs  of an attack, intrusion, an accident or any clues that could lead us to what happened, we found nothing. A trip to the emergency vet that night and surgery the next day, she survived that incident with flying colors and became the sweetest most-loyal 3-legged- bestie. (Below is a video of her a few days after surgery) She has since left this plane but continue to guide us in spirit. The day of her death was the birth of yet another beginning for me. It was her final lesson and I am eternally grateful.

This unexplained incident led me to question many things until I was questioning everything. I began meditating and within a few days, experienced a spiritual awakening
so intense that almost overnight, my lifestyle had changed.I not only saw through the
thinning veil of illusions and distractions in this matrix of a reality, I went beyond the veil and experienced true reality. Things I have seen my entire life, I was seeing again for the first time. I was not only hearing, I began listening. I was no longer the receiver, I became the transmitter.spiritual quest1

I started becoming myself instead of becoming what had become of me.

I no longer craved certain foods, certain people, certain things and certain experiences. I turned off the television and started reading again. Knowledge was my drug. I craved it with a passion. I had taken a major turn on my life path and I was not taking a stroll in the park, I headed down that road in a full-on sprint with no clue where the finish line was. Little did I know, there was no finish line.

That was over two years ago. I have since stopped eating meat and am on my way to a full Vegan lifestyle. No more down pillows, leather jackets, roasted pigs or cruelty-based products. I spend my time with people that uplift, teach, inspire or create… and when they are not available, I prefer solitude.

All of these changes occurring internally were visible external0879963215e0c37625852240d5053b70ly in the way I acted, the things I participated in, the people I surrounded myself with and the words I spoke (or didn’t speak). The groceries I purchased, the products I supported, the services I provided and the influence I allowed into my life were carefully and mindfully chosen. It took several missed-takes to realize that when unpleasant experiences repeat themselves in many different forms or vessels, it was because I had yet to learn the lesson in this lifetime that my spirit intended for me to grow from.

“…my spirit intended for me to grow from.”

In the beginning, there was nothing more that I wanted than for my sons to eat what I ate, to support my beliefs, to believe what I know and to live how I did. It did not take long to realize that my ego is what was driving those desires. I am raising people, not building clones. They are here to be them, not to be me.

I am not my children’s light. I am their lighthouse.

The reason they are they way they are is because that is how they were raised. Just because you start down one path does not mean you cannot make a U-turn at any point. All of my experiences thus far were part of my journey, one my spirit intended for me, not for my children. What was my role now that my life had taken a major change?

I took it as my personal challenge to be the change for them. We may not all be parents, but we were all children. We followed by example, so we should lead by them.

Judge not, especially your own.

Sinkronicity

Synchronicity is not just about 11:11. For those of us that are paying attention, synchronicity is increasing. For those of you have that not been paying attention, here’s your sign.

synchronous (adj.) 1660s, "existing or happening at the same time," from Late Latin synchronus "simultaneous," from Greek synkhronos "happening at the same time," from syn- "together" + khronos "time" . Meaning "recurring at the same successive instants of time".

Synchronicity is often described as meaningful coincidences.

coincidence (n.) c. 1600, "exact correspondence in substance or nature," from French coincidence, from coincider, from Medieval Latin coincidere. From 1640s as "occurrence or existence during the same time." Meaning "a concurrence of events with no apparent connection".

Physical connections are easy to prove. One can physically see that the train stations are connected by the tracks, or at a larger-scale that may not be quite as visible, is that all of our computers are connected to one giant network. There are technical explanations for these links and with the proper materials and instructions, these connections can be replicated.

parallel mirror.jpgImmaterial connections however, are intangible and abstract. They cannot be defined by any one of the five physical senses, meaning they cannot be proven. Similar to having a dream, an experience can occur without any physical way to prove that it occurred.

In order for a connection to take place, there must be at least 2 points or milestones to connect. Point A is the current experience that triggers us of the synchronicity.  Point B is the experience it is compared to which makes it meaningful, but where is this coming from, if not from prior experience?

Before incarnating into this lifetime, our spirit body, along with our spirit guide(s) and our soul group, mapped out our life plan with the intention of increasing our vibrational frequency. Think of it as a road map for spiritual leveling up with twists and turns, highs and lows & challenges and lessons. When we are born, this road map is programmed into our DNA but completely wiped from our memories. This is where free will comes into play.

“You can do what you decide to do — but you cannot decide what you will decide to do.” ~ Sam Harris

Free will gives us a choice.  The road we travel is determined by the decisions we make. When those decisions lead us onto our predetermined road map, when free will intersects with destiny, synchronicity occurs. Awareness of synchronistic events prior to them occurring is often viewed as intuition. The closer one is to their true self, aided by practices such as meditation, yoga, sungazing or the like, the higher their awareness becomes thus increasing the likelihood of synchronicity taking place.

As synchronicity realization increases, synchronicity actualization increases.

Point B is the milestone on our predetermined path. As we increase our awareness, we are thinning the veil between this illusion that we call reality and reality itself, the consciousness that creates this illusion. These permeable points are opportunities for one to realize the synchronicity.

Am I in sync?

Have you ever thought of someone right before they send you a message? Have you hummed a tune in your head to later hear it play on the radio? Do you see patterns in numbers such as license plates, phone numbers, receipts? Have you visualized an experience for it to later manifest into existence? These are examples of what one may call intuition but in reality is awareness of synchronistic events.

Now let me explain why I misspelled the title, ‘Sinkronicity’. As I was contemplating my options for a catchy title with the word sync, repeating the word in my mind, I realized that today is the day we replaced our kitchen sink with a temporary one to prepare for a new cabinet in its place.

In Sync… In Sink…Coincidence?

I think not.

Me, Myself and eYe

Two years ago, I dreamed of having a blog to serve as my journal. It was a confusing time of my life in which I was still entranced by Tell-lie-vision yet questioning it’s true purpose. I was looking for something but I had no idea what it was. I wrote an article called “Television De-Programming” without knowing where that knowledge or passion was coming from. There was something brewing inside that I could not explain and I AM not one to leave questions unanswered.

It is only now that I realize that I was at the cusp of my spiritual awakening.

Two years has since passed and I did it… I’m turning my dream into reality. Although I was an expert procrastinator, I simply ran out of excuses. So here I am, blogging from my phone. I spent the last few days thinking about the theme of my blog and although I have many favorite topics in which I’m fairly knowledgeable about and definitely passionate about, I’m only 100% sure about one thing… Myself.

This blog will be about my experiences, my spiritual journey and my awakening. My topics will revolve around energy, spiritual awareness and my favorite topic, the third eye.

I am grateful for all of you that have traveled with me thus far. I find that writing is my cleansing and healing tool and I AM grateful that my words have an opportunity to reach others to inspire, uplift and revive their spirits.

We are one.
