Tuning Fork Spotlight: The Pineal Gland Fork

The pineal gland plays a vital role in sleep and general bodily function. When it is not working properly, it can lead to hormone imbalances that affect sleep and sex drive. A pineal gland tuning fork may help improve pineal gland function when used properly and regularly. 

What is the Pineal Gland?

The pineal gland is a small gland located in the brain. It is buried where the two halves of the cerebrum meet. It is about the same size as a grain of rice. It is a specialized structure because it is one of just a few parts of the brain outside of the blood-brain barrier (called circumventricular organs). 

It is part of the endocrine system, which means that it is responsible for regulating hormones. Perhaps the most important hormone that it regulates is melatonin, which is associated with the ability to sleep regularly. It might also play a role in influencing the sex hormones, those that regulate blood pressure, and the flexibility of arterial walls. 

In general, melatonin production increases in the dark and decreases in the light, which helps regulate the sleep cycle. Interruption or disturbance in the pineal gland can lead to a variety of sleep disorders. 

The Pineal Gland and the Sixth Chakra

The pineal gland is also associated with the 6th Chakra (the Third Eye). This Chakra is linked to awareness and spiritual communication. It is also said to be associated with intuition, concentration, imagination, and clarity. 

If the pineal gland or sixth Chakra is blocked, you might be having trouble with:

  • Pessimism
  • Lack of purpose
  • Uncertainty
  • Confusion
  • Cynicism

The pineal gland has also sometimes been associated with the Crown Chakra, which is also generally related to psychic ability as well as spiritual and mental functions. 

The pineal gland’s association with the Crown Chakra and the Third Eye is especially interesting when you consider that this “sixth sense” could be the source of transcendental human power. This power has been referred to in every major civilization in recorded history. Based on these references, it seems like the pineal gland may be important for more spiritual reasons than modern science can explain. 

In 2016, for example, a study from the University of Michigan found DMT (dimethyltryptamine) in the pineal glands of live rats. DMT is an extremely powerful psychedelic compound. DMT has also been referred to as the “Spirt Molecule.” DMT occurs naturally in over 200 plants and peaks in humans during REM sleep. 

A smaller pineal gland has been associated with certain mood disorders, such as schizophrenia. It also tends to decrease its functionality as we age. Activating or improving the pineal gland can lead to better sleep and mood. 

What is a Pineal Gland Tuning Fork?

According to some research, certain sounds can activate or heal the pineal gland. Healing vibrational frequencies from a tuning fork may improve the overall function of the pineal gland in some cases. 

Over time, the pineal gland can become negatively affected by fluoride, calcium, and phosphorus. Bromine and chlorine can cause negative reactions from the pineal gland as well. Getting good amounts of Vitamin D and avoiding products with fluoride can help your pineal gland work as well as it should. In addition, a pineal gland tuning fork produces the correct frequency to activate the pineal gland. It may help decrease calcification of the gland and improve function. 

The pineal gland tuning fork can be used to produce healing vibrational frequencies anywhere and anytime that you feel the need to focus on your pineal gland. Originally, the frequencies were developed by John Worrell Keely, who lived during the late 1800s. Keely was an alchemist and scientist who discovered that certain frequencies could have positive healing effects on the brain, including the pineal gland. 

For some, the pineal gland tuning fork is one of the best tuning forks for healing because it targets very specific hormones. If you are having trouble with mood and sleep, the pineal gland tuning fork might be a good place to start. 

How to Use a Tuning Fork for Healing

You can use a pineal gland tuning fork alone or with a resonator or activator. You can also use a quartz crystal as well. The resonator or crystal helps amplify the sound and increase the overall healing effects. Be sure to hold only the stem when using tuning forks. Tap just one of the prongs on a surface, resonator, or quartz crystal

No matter which method you use, it is important to get a good, solid sound by loosely holding the tuning fork. Holding the tuning fork too tightly will dampen the sound and reduce the healing effects. 

You should be sure to transfer the sound from one ear to the other to encourage balance. Try listening in one ear for 10 seconds and then crossing over the top of the head and listening in the other ear for another 10 seconds. 

You might also want to place the pineal gland tuning fork directly on your third eye, which is between the eyebrows and just above the bridge of your nose. You can also place a quartz crystal on the third eye and place the tuning fork on the crystal. 

You might also want to try:

  • Placing the stem of the tuning work on the top of your head for 15 to 20 seconds
  • Holding the stem on the back of your head at the top of the spine (at level C1)
  • Moving the fork around your head in a circular motion three to six times

While all these motions can work, the motion that works best for you is individualized. A combination of several motions is often a good idea as well. Experiment with these various methods to use the pineal tuning fork to find the one that works best for you.
