The Third Eye or Pineal Gland is located in the middle of the brain, at the same level as the eyes. Its connection with the third eye chakra or Ajna in the Hindu system has long been investigated by yogic traditions and modern metaphysics alike. They view this gland as a possible seat of the soul and its development, a source for mystical experiences and extrasensory perception or psychic abilities.
This gland is usually considered to be in charge of producing melatonin and regulating our sleep cycle and our sexual maturation. The ways it functions is closely connected to the cycles of light and darkness.
Other Third Eye exercises include:
1. Go outside and get lots of natural light.
2. Eat foods or supplements that support a healthy activity of the pineal gland (and counter its calcification), such as iodine, chlorella, apple cider, Tamarind fruit (as it helps remove excess of fluoride involved in decreased pineal activity).
3. Meditate; meditation balances the activity of the nervous system and stimulates parts of the brain that help the pineal gland.
4. Spend time in complete darkness, as it stimulates a healthy activity in the gland and production of its associated hormones.
