Several studies has been made related to this, at least since descartes, studying for example poeple with neural lesions, descartes always believed the pineal gland was the 'seat of the soul', or the organ through which the soul enter the body, i'm not sure the is decisive/conclusive evidence, and many other studies also show 'body intelligence', and how our body in itself is also conscious of certain things, but the anatomy of this has been studied, and the lack of certain organ in the brain, or lesions in certain area are associated after with either coma, or alteration of cognitive faculty, or 'loss of reason', of coherency, of ability to think and speak coherently, which other part of the body doesn't seem to impact that much. Damages to the pineal gland apparently affect greatly a person ability to 'make sense', or being fully conscious, learning etc.Consciousness is weird if you can't pin point a place where it resides exactly and we kind of think our consciousness exists somewhere in our head around the eyes but anyway I can't prove that just a personal suggestion.
I saw some studies who compared the effect of kundalini and of psychedelic experience with a grid of symptoms like they do in clinical approach, there is lot of similarities in the reported experience.cheeneka wrote:well I am happy to say that I have never done any kind of drug.....
An awakening, a spontaneous awakening, pure love and the kundalini awakening will all awaken these gifts.

I have been thinking the same lately - "what a wise and telepathic civilization", indeed...Indigo Spirit 37 wrote:The third eye is the spiritual eye, literally... And im surprised about the physical similarities between the real human brain pineal gland and the egyptian symbol that represents the third eye. What a wise and telepathic civilization they were.
All tools of spiritual awakening are dangerous Even meditation, kundalini itself can be dangerous too I talked some while ago with a girl who worked in psychiatric emergency who was on a spiritual forum, she told me there is still a certain number of person who end in weird state after doing all kind of thing of sufism, of sophrology, of breath exercice, as well as psychedelics =)Inluxtris wrote:I have been thinking the same lately - "what a wise and telepathic civilization", indeed...Indigo Spirit 37 wrote:The third eye is the spiritual eye, literally...

As for the psychedelics, Kastaneda also mentions them as some spiritual awakening tools. But are they not too dangerous as well?
Certain abilities i guess yes Like telepathy for one =) But probably other thing , like clairvoyance =) or seing aura, or shaman use it for healing purpose =)Inluxtris wrote:Sounds absolutely rational . In fact, anything we do with a bad company and in a bad environment can have a negative effect lol.
Is it possible for psychedelics to help for paranormal abilities break out?
Yes, normally psychedelics are just used to 'peek in', but anyway i think the experience is often not that useful in itself because the nervous/cognitive system is too overloaded, so it can be intense and not that benefitial. But the goal is always to develop ability without the use of DMT or drugs, but they can always be used to boost ability temporarily, or in ceremonies to achieve some kind of binding.Inluxtris wrote:Seriously, you are an encyclopedia with an own opinion
Still there should be other ways of a real awakening paranormal abilities without using psychedelics, right?
Makes perfect sense to ban and discredit something that threatens the "materialistic ferver"...h0bby1 wrote:The psychedelic experience produced by the ritualistic use of hallucinogenic plants threatens to awaken the masses from their materialistic fervor and change their world view which goes against the Globalization motto of the western world. Hence, DMT the active ingredient of the Ayahuasca brew used by natives of the Amazon forest for thousands of years is labeled an illegal substance under the Schedule 1 category.

It existed before this Shamans used psylo since prehistoryThe way I see it, the real begin of spirituality and the beginning of the break from the hard and strict society from the past begun with the use of LSD in the previous century.
In europe druids, shamans etc used this often, in russia/siberia up the stalin era shamanism was practiced in lot of place as part of traditional culture, now generally people tend to think they don't need shaman anymore with all the science, but shaman always had a role of guide, and ceremonies involving psychedelics are common since all time, or using plants for healing, or spiritual purpose, it has been then radiated in occident during catholic era, of witch hunting etc, and then it came back under that form in the 70's with synthetic drugs and a new revival of esoteric litterature, with all kind of new practice, well they were not new actually all this esoterism and wave of freedom in the 70's there has been the same in the 19th with theosophy with same concern with freedom, progress of consciousness, in a way even people were probably more educated in these whole topic of the spirit and 'other worlds' than today in a world of 100% technology & consumerism, even in the 70 i don't know if there was that much true genuine spiritual master who emerged from this psychedelic culture of the 70's. Mostly quoting boudhism, and forming some kind of neo paganism, neo wiccan or neo boudhism.Indigo Spirit 37 wrote:Entheogens have been used during all human history I think. Originally were used to reach a state of consciousness and connect with the inner God. But what made it massive was LSD. Now the new trend seems to be ayahuasca in order to connect with Spirit and do a cleanse. I have never tried this one but seems like the new trend.
