Inside the Mind: Pineal Toning


Getting in touch with your spirituality can be a daunting task in today’s fast-paced society. With a culture that emphasizes instant gratification it can be challenging to take the time to explore your own spirituality. The world tells us that we need to focus on work, looks and smarts but what about the things that truly create happiness?

While many holistic healing methods focus on enhancing one’s spirituality, there is a technique that not only enhances spirituality but also helps the soul to crave and embrace metaphysical forces, pineal toning.

Pineal toning is by no means a new technique. The practice dates back to the days of ancient Egyptians. It is said that the great Cleopatra used a form of pineal toning to keep her youth and spiritual side active.

So what exactly is pineal toning? Well, first it is important to gain an understanding of the pineal gland.  The gland is located in the center of the brain and, for this reason, has not been extensively researched by modern scientists, until recently.  Developments in neuroscience have made it possible to get a better understanding of the function and role of the pineal gland.

The pineal gland is a part of the brain that controls consciousness of your self. It also regulates and produces melatonin which controls sleep patterns. As we spend a good portion of our lives sleeping and developing ourselves, the pineal gland is clearly an integral part of both our physical and spiritual selves.

The practice of pineal toning is one that activates the pineal gland in new ways that make a person more aware of the metaphysical world around him or her. This self-healing technique has many variations, and there is no ‘right’ or ‘correct’ way to practice this art.

Some forms involve yoga-like poses, while others involve music. It is up to the individual to decide what works best for his or her unique spirit.

The goal of pineal toning is to arouse the pineal gland through vocal sound or internal focus. The key is to recognize the unique frequency emitted by your particular pineal gland. The awareness of this frequency will allow you to develop a higher consciousness and understanding of yourself and your spiritual side. Once you activate and embrace this higher consciousness both mental and physical changes can occur.

Practicing pineal toning can help to activate the VMAT2 DNA gene, which allows for heightened spirituality and trust in the metaphysical aspects of life. This makes one crave a deeper understanding of his or her spiritual inner self.
