Mythical Wednesday: Does the 3rd Eye really exist?

coollogo_com-581457When you think of psychic abilities, the first thing that comes to mind is the third eye. For years the image of the opening eye in the middle of the forehead have been the calling card for this psychic phenomenon. The third eye refers to the focal point or gate, that opens the mind to inner realms and places of higher consciousness. There are people who believe that everyone has a third eye; that it is a muscle that we have all but have forgotten how to use, and while many see it as nothing more that new age silliness there could be some truth to this theory.

Depicted in images as located in the lower-center of the forehead, just above the brow, it’s interesting to note that the penal gland lies just a few inches back from this spot, inside the brain. Many believe that the penal gland is somehow connected to the third eye, or that it may be responsible for the visions associated with the third eye.

The penal glad itself is responsible for producing melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and photoperiodic, or seasonal, functions. For those who experience prophetic dreams, could this be the result of the penal gland? The gland its thought to be important in the development of supernatural powers, and the growth of psychic abilities is thought to be closely associated with this organ as well.

Because the gland is located so close to the area in which the 3rd eye is depicted to be, there could be some correlation between the two. Many of those who use crystals, myself included, will put a stone associated with opening the third eye on our forehead, to give the ability more power.

Do you believe in this ability? Do you think your 3rd eye is awake?
