This Part 1 – the talk he gave – and Part 2, a compelling and highly interactive dialogue with the audience will follow in the next video.
Although we rarely think about the endocrine system, it influences almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies. The endocrine system plays a role in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, and sexual function and reproductive processes.
In general, the endocrine system is in charge of body processes that happen slowly, such as cell growth. Faster processes like breathing and body movement are controlled by the nervous system. But even though the nervous system and endocrine system are separate systems, they often work together to help the body function properly.
The foundations of the endocrine system are the hormones and glands. As the body’s chemical messengers, hormones transfer information and instructions from one set of cells to another. Many different hormones move through the bloodstream, but each type of hormone is designed to affect only certain cells.
A gland is a group of cells that produces and secretes, or gives off, chemicals. A gland selects and removes materials from the blood, processes them, and secretes the finished chemical product for use somewhere in the body.
Some types of glands release their secretions in specific areas. For instance, exocrine(pronounced: EK-suh-krin) glands, such as the sweat and salivary glands, release secretions in the skin or inside the mouth. Endocrine glands, on the other hand, release more than 20 major hormones directly into the bloodstream where they can be transported to cells in other parts of the body.
The major glands that make up the human endocrine system include the:
reproductive glands (which include the ovaries and testes)
The hypothalamus (pronounced: hi-po-THAL-uh-mus), a collection of specialized cells that is located in the lower central part of the brain, is the main link between the endocrine and nervous systems. Nerve cells in the hypothalamus control the pituitary gland by producing chemicals that either stimulate or suppress hormone secretions from the pituitary.
Although it is no bigger than a pea, the pituitary (pronounced: puh-TOO-uh-ter-ee) gland, located at the base of the brain just beneath the hypothalamus, is considered the most important part of the endocrine system. It’s often called the “master gland” because it makes hormones that control several other endocrine glands.
The production and secretion of pituitary hormones can be influenced by factors such as emotions and changes in the seasons. To accomplish this, the hypothalamus provides information sensed by the brain (such as environmental temperature, light exposure patterns, and feelings) to the pituitary.
The tiny pituitary is divided into two parts: the anterior lobe and the posterior lobe. The anterior lobe regulates the activity of the thyroid, adrenals, and reproductive glands. The anterior lobe produces hormones such as:
growth hormone, which stimulates the growth of bone and other body tissues and plays a role in the body’s handling of nutrients and minerals
prolactin (pronounced: pro-LAK-tin), which activates milk production in women who are breastfeeding
thyrotropin (pronounced: thy-ruh-TRO-pin), which stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones
corticotropin (pronounced: kor-tih-ko-TRO-pin), which stimulates the adrenal gland to produce certain hormones
The pituitary also secretes endorphins (pronounced: en-DOR-fins), chemicals that act on the nervous system and reduce feelings of pain. In addition, the pituitary secretes hormones that signal the reproductive organs to make sex hormones. The pituitary gland also controls ovulation and the menstrual cycle in women.
The posterior lobe of the pituitary releases antidiuretic (pronounced: an-ty-dy-uh-REH-tik)hormone, which helps control the balance of water in the body. The posterior lobe also produces oxytocin (pronounced: ahk-see-TOE-sin), which triggers the contractions of the uterus in a woman having a baby.
The thyroid (pronounced: THY-royd), located in the front part of the lower neck, is shaped like a bow tie or butterfly and produces the thyroid hormones thyroxine (pronounced: thy-RAHK-sin) and triiodothyronine (pronounced: try-eye-oh-doe-THY-ruh-neen). These hormones control the rate at which cells burn fuels from food to produce energy.
The production and release of thyroid hormones is controlled by thyrotropin (pronounced: thy-ruh-TRO-pin), which is secreted by the pituitary gland. The more thyroid hormone there is in a person’s bloodstream, the faster chemical reactions occur in the body.
Why are thyroid hormones so important? There are several reasons — for example, they help kids’ and teens’ bones grow and develop, and they also play a role in the development of the brain and nervous system in kids.
Attached to the thyroid are four tiny glands that function together called the parathyroids(pronounced: par-uh-THY-roydz). They release parathyroid hormone, which regulates the level of calcium in the blood with the help of calcitonin (pronounced: kal-suh-TOE-nin), which is produced in the thyroid.
The body also has two triangular adrenal (pronounced: uh-DREE-nul) glands, one on top of each kidney.
The adrenal glands have two parts, each of which produces a set of hormones and has a different function:
The outer part, the adrenal cortex, produces hormones called corticosteroids (pronounced: kor-tih-ko-STER-oydz) that influence or regulate salt and water balance in the body, the body’s response to stress, metabolism, the immune system, and sexual development and function.
The inner part, the adrenal medulla (pronounced: muh-DUH-luh), produces catecholamines(pronounced: kah-tuh-KO-luh-meenz), such as epinephrine (pronounced: eh-puh-NEH-frun). Also called adrenaline, epinephrine increases blood pressure and heart rate when the body experiences stress.
The pineal (pronounced: pih-NEE-ul) body, also called the pineal gland, is located in the middle of the brain. It secretes melatonin (pronounced: meh-luh-TOE-nin), a hormone that may help regulate when you sleep at night and when you wake in the morning.
The gonads are the main source of sex hormones. Most people don’t realize it, but both guys and girls have gonads.
In guys the male gonads, or testes (pronounced: TES-teez), are located in the scrotum. They secrete hormones called androgens (pronounced: AN-druh-junz), the most important of which istestosterone (pronounced: tess-TOSS-tuh-rone). These hormones tell a guy’s body when it’s time to make the changes associated with puberty, like penis and height growth, deepening voice, and growth in facial and pubic hair. Working with hormones from the pituitary gland, testosterone also tells a guy’s body when it’s time to produce sperm in the testes.
A girl’s gonads, the ovaries (pronounced: OH-vuh-reez), are located in her pelvis. They produce eggs and secrete the female hormones estrogen (pronounced: ESS-truh-jen) and progesterone(pronounced: pro-JESS-tuh-rone). Estrogen is involved when a girl begins to go through puberty. During puberty, a girl will experience breast growth, will begin to accumulate body fat around the hips and thighs, and will have a growth spurt. Estrogen and progesterone are also involved in the regulation of a girl’s menstrual cycle. These hormones also play a role in pregnancy.
Although the endocrine glands are the body’s main hormone producers, some other organs not in the endocrine system — such as the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, and skin — also produce and release hormones.
The pancreas (pronounced: PAN-kree-us) is also part of the body’s hormone-secreting system, even though it is also associated with the digestive system because it produces and secretes digestive enzymes.
The pancreas produces (in addition to others) two important hormones, insulin (pronounced: IN-suh-lin) and glucagon (pronounced: GLOO-kuh-gawn). They work together to maintain a steady level of glucose, or sugar, in the blood and to keep the body supplied with fuel to produce and maintain stores of energy.
What Does the Endocrine System Do?
Once a hormone is secreted, it travels from the endocrine gland that produced it through the bloodstream to the cells designed to receive its message. These cells are called target cells. Along the way to the target cells, special proteins bind to some of the hormones. These proteins act as carriers that control the amount of hormone that is available for the cells to use.
The target cells have receptors that latch onto only specific hormones, and each hormone has its own receptor, so that each hormone will communicate only with specific target cells that have receptors for that hormone. When the hormone reaches its target cell, it locks onto the cell’s specific receptors and these hormone-receptor combinations transmit chemical instructions to the inner workings of the cell.
When hormone levels reach a certain normal amount, the endocrine system helps the body to keep that level of hormone in the blood. For example, if the thyroid gland has secreted the right amount of thyroid hormones into the blood, the pituitary gland senses the normal levels of thyroid hormone in the bloodstream. Then the pituitary gland adjusts its release of thyrotropin, the hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones.
Another example of this process is parathyroid hormone, which increases the level of calcium in the blood. When the blood calcium level rises, the parathyroid glands sense the change and reduce their secretion of parathyroid hormone. This turnoff process is called a negative feedback system.
Okay I have not posted any research or meditation experiences lately mainly because I have been busy doing human stuff.. making videos and counting leaves that have been redesigned! ….Though I have not posted I definitely have been experiencing many sensations and lessons so here is the most recent meditation/lessons.
The format of this article will follow
– Meditation Experience/ Notes
– Research that helped gain more of a inner-standing of what just occurred during meditation.
-Questions I feel can be answered with more research and meditation
– How to apply the information gathered
Intent for this session was to gain more of an insight on kundalini energy, specifically the swaying ( kriya kundalini movements) that becomes active shortly after my focus is directed at conscious breathing.
Sat in crossed legged posture, spine straight.
Conscious breathing is the foundation to all of my meditation so I begin by focusing on inhaling and exhaling.
The swaying begins. To get an idea of what I mean draw the letter S. Imagine if that motion has begun with your physical body. Starting from the base of your spine all the way up to the top of your head. Your body begins moving/oscillating from side to side in a fluid motion.
Frequency – Amount of times a wave oscillates per second.
Amplitude – Maximum extent of vibration/oscillation
I found understanding the science behind the “kundalini energy” easier to comprehend when using terms that can also describe attributes of sound.
The frequency of the “kundalini energy” can be changed according to thought.
There seems to be a standard or starting “frequency “of the kundalini energy what that frequency corresponds to Im un-sure of at this moment. This made me wonder if it is has a connection to brain waves being the frequency felt as if it were possibly 3hz. (3 cycles per second/ the swaying begins in center–>right–center …center -left–center…center–>right–center) it completes 3 cycles in about 1 second . Ive read somewhere that kundalini is coiled at the base of the spine in 3.5 coils ….. I thought to make a more practical connection so I asked myself which brain waves are near the frequency of 3hz? …… Delta clocking in at 0.1 – 3hz border lining Theta waves… interesting but still not enough for me to validate that thought.
You can get a quick overview of brain waves and what each stage represents below
This is how you would normally calculate frequency and wave length. – TutorVista . Im simply using “feel” to calculate the frequency of the kund-energy by using the swaying (kriya flow) of my body as measurement for cycles.
What Are Kundalini Kriyas?
Kriya refers to the outward physical expression of awakened kundalini and look like spontaneous yoga postures. A long time ago, kriyas occurred to people who meditated often, and these yoga-like poses are credited as the origin of modern yoga. Kriyas are spontaneous movements, because you do not voluntarily decide to move that way. A kriya happens unexpectedly. Kriyas happen due to higher-self, orchestrating the movement. Because higher-self does not use thought, it seems it happens spontaneously.
At this stage in meditation I learned something new. The swaying activation (kundalini) from conscious breathing are familiar stages to me that I have become comfortable with. Typically I don’t mentally try to adjust the swaying/frequency of kund-energy that Im feeling I generally go with the flow. From past experience I know it is possible to alter the frequency of energy. So this time I focused on speeding up the rate of oscillation by simply thinking of it as moving faster then feeling it respond to my thought. Now when it is at 3hz you can feel/determine the motion of the swaying pretty easily but when you begin to speed it up it reaches a point where the swaying dissolves into a pulsating sensation. The transition usually last for about 2 -5 seconds. The perfect example visually would be looking at a bike wheel. When moving slow ( low frequency) you can see all of the spokes but when you speed it up (high frequency) all the spokes begin to look like one spoke/blur in a sense. The same effect feels like it happens when you consciously up the frequency of this energy.
I assume that the high frequency is producing this pulsation of energy in a sense. I found the next block of info useful pertaining to pulses.
– Electromagnetic (radio or sound) waves are conceptually pure single frequency phenomena while pulses may be mathematically thought of as composed of a number of pure frequencies that sum and nullify in interactions that create a pulse train of the specific amplitudes, PRRs, base frequencies, phase characteristics, etcetera (See Fourier Analysis)
What this pulse is specifically Im not sure… but it definitely feels good. The rate of pulsation is similar as the kundalini but at higher speeds. When I say it feels good I mean when you breathe in sync with this pulse it feels energizing and refreshing. It feels as if your in a bubble or a field of energy. I think it helps when you sync your breathing with the pulsation of the kundalini energy. When focusing on sending energy to specific points of the body… I begin by syncing the speed of my breathing with the pulsation while mentally feeling/ focusng the pulsation at the point on my body. The energy seems to follow where my focus goes. Kunda-Energy/Qi is said to travel along specifc pathways called meridians.
What happens when you focus the energy to an area of the body? From my experience when you focus on your arm for example while you inhale it seems to create a sensation and physical response that is similar to tension. Focusing on the area during exhalation causes a relaxing sensation in a pulsation like rhythm. This is not limited to your own body. You can also cause these sensations to occur within others. During intimacy I find it easier to build and send this energy into your partner as well as receive this energy with knowledge/practice of technique. The key to controlling the flow of energy is controlling the flow of breath.
At this point in meditation the point I focus on with my eyes closed is .. the back of my eye lids. The reason I draw my attention there is because a very interesting experience has occurred consistently. A sphere of light appears. The perfect example of how this appears would be to look directly at the sun then close your eyes. You will still see the imprint of the sun. This begins to happen within naturally for me after about 20 minutes of conscious breathing. It is a constant sphere but there seems to be waves coming into the edges of the sphere. An example of this motion : Draw a circle in the sand and use your hands to push the sand surrounding the circle toward the edges of the circle just drawn. This motion repeats itself. The sphere takes on different forms. The first time I had this experience I focused on different chakra points and to my surprise the sphere began changing shapes. I have not experimented with using chakras to alter this “sphere” since the first time I experienced it. Each chakra has its own frequency as well. Using your mouth you can make the frequency through producing the corresponding tone.
I concluded this meditation by sending the kund-energy directly to my head in a pulse like rhythm. It felt as if the energy was massaging my brain. if I could go threw my hair/skeleton and do a deep tissue massage on my brain with my hands thats what i would compare the feeling to. From this experience I can say that knowing about specific areas of the body and the functions can be helpful in targeting those areas.
Once I finished I felt very refreshed and it felt like I could think about “larger/complex” thoughts with much more ease. It was like I reached another level of understanding of what was occurring during meditation. Estimated time 1 1/2 – 2 hours 5.27.15 ::
For some reason I felt that I was seeing sounds/vibration. Not only was I seeing the geometrical patterns that the frequency of the sound is producing but I was feeling them as well. This led me down a path of information Ive found very useful and as always left me with more questions then I have started with. Some of the notes from what i researched are below.
Quick Summary – Qi, Kundalini, Frequencies,Pineal Gland, Cymatics, Thalamus, Learning & memory mechanisms of the brain. Solfeggio Frequencies
During meditation you can tap into or produce frequencies from your thoughts. You can also use sound/music/mantras/chants to reach/experience certain frequencies and the effects.
Certain frequencies produce geometric patterns. You can literally see these patterns visually with your minds’ eye also known as Pineal Gland.
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “wave”) is the study of visible sound co-vibration.
Superconductivity is a phenomenon of exactly zero electrical resistance and expulsion of magnetic fields occurring in certain materials when cooled below a characteristic critical temperature.
Resonator an apparatus that increases the resonance of a sound, especially a hollow part of a musical instrument.
Transducer a device that converts variations in a physical quantity, such as pressure or brightness, into an electrical signal, or vice versa.
The pineal gland has the ability to amplify sound and then create a holographic projection/image for the mind by converting sound into electrical signals similar to how your two eyes function.
Solfeggio frequencies make up the ancient 6-tone scale thought to have been used in sacred music. Each Solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony.
The Solfeggio frequencies were lost because throughout history different tuning applications have been used. Ancient tuning practices used a system of tuning known as “Just Intonation.” The method of Just Intonation featured pure intervals between every note that were mathematically related by ratios of small whole numbers leading to a much purer sound.
If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe” – Nikola Tesla,
The 3, 6, and 9 are the fundamental root vibrations of the Solfeggio frequencies
This science goes back as far as Ancient Egypt and the video below is a interview with a Cymatic researcher Johnathan Reid. He discusses the sound characteristics found during his experiments in the Great Pyramid. He has some very insightful and brilliant information that will help you see the potentials of this science.
Sleep Spindles – also known as sigma bands or sigma waves. These waves stop certain brain process so that the sleeper can remain in a tranquil state. These waves usually occur onset of Stage 2 Sleep
Sleep spindle activity associated with integration of new information into existing knowledge as well as directed remembering and forgetting (fast sleep spindles)
K Complex Wave Form – Suppressing the ability to restore consciousness when signaled/triggered as response to danger. (helps you remain sleep even if danger is near or signaled to the mind from your surroundings)
Thalamus and Cortex communication generate sleep spindles.
The Thalamus (from Greekθάλαμος, “chamber”) is a midline symmetrical structure of two halves, within the vertebratebrain, situated between the cerebral cortex and the midbrain. Some of its functions are the relaying of sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex,and the regulation of consciousness, sleep, and alertness.
Engram – Memory traces held within bio physical and bio chemical changes in the brain. Biological nueral network : fragment of memory.
Synaptic consolidation (LTP) Late Phase occurs within the first few hours of learning.
Systems consolidation (HD) hippocampus-dependent memories become independent of the hippocampus over a period of weeks to years.
Acetylcholine (ACh) – ACh has also been shown to promote REM sleep. ACh acts through nicotinic receptors to excite certain groups of inhibitory interneurons in the cortex, which further dampen down cortical activity. One well-supported function of acetylcholine (ACh) in cortex is increased responsiveness to sensory stimuli, a form of attention.
Rapid eye movement sleep (REM sleep, REMS) is a unique phase of mammalian sleep characterized by random movement of the eyes, low muscle tone throughout the body, and the propensity of the sleeper to dream vividly. This phase is also known as paradoxical sleep (PS) and sometimes desynchronized sleep because of physiological similarities to waking states, including rapid, low-voltage desynchronized brain waves. Electrical and chemical activity regulating this phase seems to originate in the brain stem and is characterized most notably by an abundance of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine,
What is the pulsation that results from the kundalini energy frequency rising?
Electromagnetic (radio or sound) waves are conceptually pure single frequency phenomena while pulses may be mathematically thought of as composed of a number of pure frequencies that sum and nullify in interactions that create a pulse train of the specific amplitudes
Still searching for a answer but this does help understand. Possibly raising the frequency causes other frequencies to be produced/nullified???? hmmm
What is the connection between sleep spindles created from h-thalamus – Cortex communication?
I think all of the these components work together to assist the body reach a physical state of relaxation in order to heal/ reenergize.
Can you experience alternate realities or dimensions by hitting specific frequencies?
How can sound be used to change physical matter?
Were some of the hieroglyphs actually derived from the study of Cymatics ? If so how did the Ancient culture incorporate these tones into their language?
Can we use sound to heal ourselves from disease?
Does Melanin play a role in this process ?
A Super-conductor of the high frequency radiation and neural transmissions/Semiconductor of sound and heat energy/Conductor of the body’s ionic charge/Resonator of visible light
Melanin means ‘Black amino’ and is a color pigment composed of a hydrocarbon chain which has various amino (nitrogen-based) compounds attached to it. Carbon is the organizing molecule that gives melanin its structure. It is carbon that gives melanin the ability to absorb energy and bind with other molecules while retaining stability and coherence.
Tyronsinase is an organometallic amino compound that is organized around carbon, nitrogen, and copper.
This amino acid is the catalyst for melanin reproduction, and
the amino compound that facilitates melanin’s ability to conduct many Electro-magnetic frequencies.
It would seem to me that Melanin is a very important factor to fully experiencing these frequencies in relation to the physical body.
How to apply this information:
To sum it up the Universe is made up of vibrations. If you can produce certain vibrations/frequency then you have the power to heal yourself and be in tuned with a language of geometrical design. You produce these frequencies with your voice or with external tools of sound. Learning how energy flows can help you gain more endurance physically in all activites that you partake in. Plus It feels good to feel good! Practice conscious breathing its the foundation to all the wonderful mysteries that your body and mind will reveal to you. I’m still young so i’m sure there is much more for me to learn and share so until then Ill be meditating and figuring out how this brain of mine functions.
The ancient Egyptians laid the foundations of many sciences and some of their discoveries influenced Greek and Roman science. In the field of acoustics we know from the Roman architect, Vetruvius, that acoustic techniques were employed in both the Roman and Greek cultures; but were their architects inspired by acoustical knowledge obtained from ancient Egypt?
You purchase the book at CymaScope .. As always if a PDF becomes available to me I will gladly post it online. I hope you learned and I was able to connect a few dots for you. Peace share you experiences and learn!
The pineal gland is the connection point for the Spirit or Soul. It is the physical center for, and transmitter of, psychic phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance in time and space, and the actual influence of thoughts on the physical surroundings. When activated, the pineal gland becomes the line of communication with the higher planes. The crown chakra reaches down until its vortex touches the pineal gland. Prana, or pure energy, is received through this energy center in the head. With practice the vibration level of the astral body is raised, allowing it to separate from the physical. To activate the ‘third eye’ and perceive higher dimensions, the pineal gland and the pituitary body must vibrate in unison, which is achieved through meditation and/or relaxation.
“When a correct relationship is established between personality, operating through the pituitary body, and the soul, operating through the pineal gland, a magnetic field is created. The negative and positive forces interact and become strong enough to create the ‘light in the head.’ With this ‘light in the head’ activated, astral projectors can withdraw themselves from the body, carrying the light with them.”
“The pineal works primarily by converting the higher dimensional Light, that is constantly streaming into your reality, into usable information for your pituitary. As it gradually activates, the pineal permits the body to move its vibrational patterns into higher and higher levels. This process also allows your Light Body to
attach itself even deeper into your physical instrument (Fig. 17). Our process is to reset the focus in the pineal. This chemical ‘lens’ largely disappears as you grow older. The decrease in its efficacy is one of the major reasons for your body aging as quickly as it does. When the pituitary begins to receive the consciousness
energy packets from the Well of Dreams through its interaction with the pineal, it secretes enzymes that permit the chemical ‘lens’ in the pineal to reappear. As this ‘lens’ strengthens, it allows the RNA/DNA protein strings in your cells to activate your ‘third strand’.”
There are numerous anatomical and physiological idiosyncrasies associated with the pineal. It is one of the few solitary organs (most organs in the brain are paired, left and right). While small, the blood flow to the gland is quite large. The pineal has been considered as a homologue of the reptilian ‘third eye’. Its photosensitivity derives from neural connections with the retina. The Taoist practice of Orgasmic Upward Draw is very important to help stimulate the
pineal gland. Taoists regard the pineal as the second sexual gland (Fig. 19).
Nothing could be more natural than the state of Wu Chi, nothingness, or divine grace. And yet, the realization of Wu Chi is clouded by obscurations and confusions. Consciousness streams into every body, but only a few can see the light. Why is this so? An essential function of the “upper brain”, the Upper Tan Tien, is to manifest the esoteric and divine realizations of consciousness into our humanly bodies. Chi spirals through the Crown and the Third Eye into the pineal and pituitary glands, sustaining existence and nourishing the spirit. Infants and children bask in the glow and the power of the Chi Field streaming into, and interacting with, their bodies. The psyche is vibrant and alive and the energy bodies communicate in non-physical dimensions. As we grow older, however, the internal realities begin to fade and the external world begins to predominate
our existence. By puberty, the pineal gland has ossified into a calcified strand of tissue. Our minds project outwardly, and the demands of existence (work, family, daily living, etc.) preoccupy our awareness. Our emotions (fears, angers, resentments and all kinds of distractions to make ends meet) reflect this outward movement of the psyche. Fear is the oldest negative emotion.
The transition from an internally focused awareness of the Divine, the natural state of infancy, to an externally focused awareness of the adult world, requires significant shifts in the chemistry of the brain. The tissues and molecules which normally manifest the consciousness of Wu Chi must be “turned off” or inhibited.
Chemically, the inhibitors are enzymes such as MAO (monoamine oxidase) which rapidly convert seratonin into inactive by-products, thus disabling the synthesis of the spirit molecules. The enzyme MAO breaks down seratonin before it can be converted into melatonin, 5-MeO-DMT and DMT (Fig. 20).
Our usual perception of the world in waking consciousness is, in fact, a state of waking ignorance. The brain must inhibit our true nature and divine connections to survive in the physical world. In everyday life, we see everything back to front, as it were. We perceive the primary actions of the brain as providing us with sensibility and cognitive awareness. In fact, the brain’s mechanism is to filter and shut off the flow of divine consciousness, making possible survival on Earth, but obscuring all transcendental realities. Dark Room meditations remove the obscurations. The inhibitory functions of the brain are lifted, and we revel in the experience of Oneness, Wu Chi, the Original Source.
Reawakening – Spirit Molecules
Waking consciousness satisfies the demands of physical existence, but severs the connection from the Divine. Thus, each night we must disconnect from the outer world and reconnect with our divine source, thereby sustaining life and nourishing the soul. In adult life, the experience of Wu Chi is relegated to the unconscious domains of deep sleep and the supernatural worlds of dream. In Taoist Inner Alchemy, we reawaken the soul to the Immortal Tao, the Wu Chi, the Original Source, and bring back the Divine into our conscious awareness.
Chemically, the reconnection to the Divine occurs by inhibiting the enzymatic actions of MAO and INMT, so that seratonin can convert into melatonin and melatonin into the spirit molecules 5-MeO-DMT (5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine) and DMT (dimethyltryptamine) (Fig. 21). The enzymes are inhibited by substances
secreted in the pineal gland, such as harmaline and pinoline. The “spirit molecules” allow us to reconnect to divine consciousness. They cause “color imagery, out of body experiences, lucid dreams, visions of beings and/or animals, mystical states, subjective “other realities” and experiences of “being
somewhere else.” These states are the language of dream.
In the Dark Room experience, the “spirit molecules” pinoline, 5-MeO-DMT and DMT alter the receiving qualities of the brain. The brain “tunes in” to invisible worlds and parallel universes, like a television tuning in to different channels. Mystical and near-death, out-of-body experiences reflect dynamic equilibria between “channels” in which we experience the essential energy that courses through the receiver. When you reach the ‘DMT state’ you begin to function consciously from the various psychic centers or chakras. The bodily processes of ‘Healing Love’ combine the human states of true compassion and sexual arousal to create a new chemistry and a new vibration within the body. This ‘special’ vibration occurs at a frequency of 8Hz. ‘As in the macrocosm, so it is in the microcosm’; hence if we make love, then all the cells and DNA actually make love as well. The DNA crosses over, like two serpents intertwined in an erotic embrace. You need the orgasmic vibration to arouse this crossover process which leads to the ‘two giving birth to three’; the conception of new cells. The two vital states are compassion and arousal leading to orgasm. Both are inextricably linked to love.
