The Pineal Gland and DMT

By: Missy Marston

The pineal gland is a small pinecone shaped gland in between the two hemispheres of the brain. It is located between and slightly above your eyebrows, and is also known as your third eye or ajna chakra.

It is popular knowledge that the pineal gland relases melatonin, a chemical that stimulates our circadian rhythm and helps us sleep. However, many don’t know that it is connected to the notion of the ‘third eye’.

This gland regulates our perception of consciousness, allowing us to be aware of our consciousness and to exist out of it with its production of DMT. When melatonin is released, it allows our conscious minds to sleep while our body still functions. DMT, or dimethyltryptamine, allows our bodies to function and allows our conscious minds to be awake, as well as freeing our consciousness from the physical body.

Once the pineal gland is decalcified and activated, it will regularly release DMT – the chemical released at birth, death, near-death experiences, and when you dream.

Normal brain activity is considered between 13-30 hertz, while brain activity with a dose of DMT is measured at 2500 hertz (source) ! The higher the frequency, the higher the consciousness.

The Pineal Gland and DMT

When the pineal gland releases DMT, you will experience being conscious of the self while separately experience being conscious of your physical body, all the while having an awareness of it. You feel a heightened sense of unity and an understanding of humankind, society, the universe, and everything in between; it helps you remember that you are a magnificent soul force in a simple physical apparatus. This separation of self from body allows you to travel through the different realms of consciousness, such as astral projection, astral travel, and communication with the higher consciousness.

Have you ever had a near death experience? Many who have had one or more can remember what was experienced with the temporary death of their physical self. Often times they feel a disconnect with their bodies, as if they are an old set of clothes they no longer have need for. This is very similar, if not the same, as what is experienced when DMT is released from the pineal gland. Practice, meditation, yoga inversions, decalcifying, and stimulation of the pineal gland allow more of this natural chemical to be produced, and allow easier access to dimensions of spirit, higher consciousness, and the universal consciousness.

The pineal gland and its release of DMT has been a source of inspiration, epiphanies, and cosmic awareness throughout history. Consider the philosophers of ancient times. Boethius was a Roman philosopher who was jailed for treason. While in confinement, he connected with what he called Lady Philosophy. She comforted him and answered his questions on God, the universe, free will, and how evil was allowed in a world watched over by god. He was eventually executed, but his work, “The Consolation of Philosophy”, was written as a conversation between him and this ethereal, all knowing consciousness.

Boethius’ story always fascinated me, as did The Consolation of Philosophy. When I had first read it, even though I did not really believe in any god or higher power, I knew that he was visited by something bigger than himself, who allowed him to understand what he had been trying to figure out for most of his life.

Now, after researching the higher self, the higher power, the universal consciousness, and different realms of existence and our ability to access them, I think back to other philosophers and mathematicians who had these epiphanies and can not help but think: is this due to the chemicals released from the pineal gland, allowing them to free themselves from their physical bodies and convene with other entities on higher planes?


The pineal gland has been represented in many cultures, usually as a pine cone or as a third eye (source).

Why don’t we learn about this? Its prevalence has been noted century after century, and its likeness has been produced in numerous paintings, carvings, statues, and other mediums!!

The truth is, your pineal gland is the key to unlocking the mysteries of the world and of yourself. It’s powerful and you are powerful. So keep practicing to open your third eye, and keep researching into its rich past in other cultures.

Love and light to you all!
