The third eye is an energy center inside the brain through which your intuition and higher wisdom come alive, when it is active and balanced.
The pineal gland, a pea-sized gland located at the central area of the brain, is where the third eye energy center is located.
The pineal gland has photo-receptor (light absorbing) cells just like the eye, which makes it sensitive to light. When it is dark, the pineal gland secretes a powerful hormone called Melatonin which regulates the circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle) in the human body.
During meditation when the eyes are closed, energy channeled by the meditator is absorbed by the pineal gland. When energy flows, it is nothing but light. The visualization of light with closed eyes happens because of the pineal gland. This in turn makes one visualize cosmic energy even with closed eyes, which is one of the natural experiences during deep meditations and third eye activation.
Hence, the pineal gland is also called the ‘seat of soul’ as the experience of divine union happens at the third eye center where the pineal gland is located.
Third eye activation is, hence, easily achieved with practice of Samadhi Meditation and Karma Yoga Healing
