Link between Neurodiversity and The Universal Mind
“You are not limited to this body, to this mind, or to this reality—you are a limitless ocean of Consciousness, imbued with infinite potential. You are existence itself.” - Joseph P. Kauffman
Through years of research, I found a correlation between pineal gland stimulation and extrasensory experiences. I often take breaks throughout the day to go on a walk outside while listening to music that raises my frequency. When I feel that oneness with nature bursting with gratitude, I’ve connected to the quantum field. I download information, innovative ideas, movie treatments, or intuitions during these times. I was determined to understand what caused my third eye to open, which I know is activated even in a dark room when the light of a candle is fire to my eyes. Light and sound sensitivity are intolerable, and I can feel the emotions of people around me. If this is what a neurodiverse brain such as autism endures, it’s no wonder they have meltdowns in overcrowded places or around befouled energy.
On one of my walks, it occurred to me that the pineal gland, part of the brain's limbic system, is interconnected to emotions, memories, fight or flight responses, and the circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm regulates the twenty-four-hour sleep cycle through the pineal gland stimulated by light secreting serotonin which is present at high levels in the pineal gland during the day and decreases at night with a rise in melatonin. The pineal gland, otherwise known as “the third eye,” is ultra-sensitive to light. According to Dr. Joe Dispenza, the piezoelectric effect on the crystals in the pineal can be activated to pick up signals from the quantum field. It occurred to me, could there be an imbalance in a neurodiverse pineal gland? I rushed back home to research if there were case studies on the pineal gland and autism and found several articles on the topic. The Ruppin Academic Center, Faculty of Marine Sciences, Michmoret, Israel wrote an article entitled Updated View on the Relation of the Pineal Gland to Autism Spectrum Disorders https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fendo.2019.00037/full
“One of the proposed biological causes of autism is malfunction of the pineal gland and deficiency of its principal hormone, melatonin. The main function of melatonin is to link and synchronize the body's homeostasis processes to the circadian and seasonal rhythms and regulate the sleep-wake cycle. Therefore, pineal dysfunction has been implicated based on the common observation of low melatonin levels and sleep disorders associated with autism. In this perspective, we highlight several recent findings that support the hypothesis of pineal gland/melatonin involvement in autism. Another common symptom of autism is abnormal neuroplasticity, such as cortical overgrowth and dendritic spine dysgenesis. Here, we synthesize recent information and speculate on the possibility that this abnormal neuroplasticity is caused by hyperactivity of endogenous N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT).”
Dr. Joe Dispenza teaches a method of activating the pineal gland through meditation and breath work that organically releases DMT in the brain.
“My interest in explaining this mystical science of the gland is really thinking of the pineal as the brain’s radio receiver. It can only be activated through a certain process. When this latent system switches on, the arousal created is energy moving from the body right up into the brain… The moment that happens, the brain goes into what’s called gamma brain wave patterns. They have a full-on sensory experience without their senses, and whatever is going on between their ears, the vision they’re having, they’re not visualizing; it’s happening to them. And the person now is literally in a whole other world. They’re in another dimension. that’s why the pineal gland is called the third eye because it’s a profound vision… Once the autonomic nervous system switches on and goes into gamma brain wave patterns, that radio receiver has tiny little calcite crystals stacked rhombohedrons on top of each other, and those crystals begin to shimmer. They begin to oscillate; the radio receiver is activated. When the brain latches on to a frequency, the pineal gland acts as a transducer, and it begins to release upgraded versions of melatonin. Melatonin already causes us to dream… It already causes us to relax… Melatonin is already an antioxidant… And then you make that one amazing chemical called dimethyltryptamine that begins to switch on. What happens is you no longer move through space to experience time. You move through times, experiencing dimensions or spaces….”
Blending the mystical and science of the pineal gland validates the theory that unexplained prophetic dreams, entrainment, sensory overload causing extreme anxiety, and telepathic abilities, correlate to the stimulation of the pineal gland. The same stimulation that neurodiverse brains experience. Ancient Egyptians referenced The Eye of Horus believed to stay dormant until the soul reaches a certain spiritual level. It was primordial to nurture the limbic brain so that the third eye would lead to spiritual awakening. Ancient Egyptians concluded that relaxing the limbic system would heal and reshape our brains.

Temple Gradin, Ph.D., international speaker, scientist, and animal behaviorist, candidly shares her experience overcoming the challenges of autism.
“Autistic people can be isolated, she says, not only because they have difficulty connecting with so-called "normal" people, but because normal people find it difficult to put themselves in an autistic person's shoes and see the world from their perspective…Normal people have an incredible lack of empathy. They have good emotional empathy, but they don't have much empathy for the autistic kid screaming at the baseball game because he can't stand the sensory overload. Or the autistic kid having a meltdown in the school cafeteria because there's too much stimulation. I'm frustrated with the inability of normal people to have sensory empathy. They can't seem to acknowledge these different realities because they're so far away from their own experiences.”
For women who suffer through premenstrual syndrome (PMS) , and men that energetically ride the wave, imagine the worst PMS of your life, stuck in traffic and hungry. Road rage surfaces, wishing you could just drive through the cars. That is similar to what it feels for people with autism with sensory overload. If women experience this imbalance of hormones essentially once a month and it is excused as the norm, where is the grace for people with autism? In the article, Temple Grandin: Inside ASD https://www.autism.org/temple-grandin-inside-asd/, Temple discusses the overwhelming struggle with anxiety during the onset of puberty. Another correlation to the pineal gland located in the limbic system regulates hormones, the fight or flight response, and anxiety. A malfunction in the pineal gland leads to hormonal imbalance that affects the regulation of emotions. The amygdala located in the limbic system interprets information. If it perceives a threat, it sends a distress signal to the hypothalamus, which coordinates both the autonomic nervous system and the activity of the pituitary. This signal does not shut off which creates the sensation of extreme anxiety.
In both neurodiverse and neurotypical brains, there are stronger areas than others. Not everyone who accelerates in math can create a masterpiece painting or is musically inclined. Millions of minds worldwide have immediate access to the quantum field displayed in mediumship, psychic premonitions, intuition, entrainment, and perform miraculous healings. Studies are pointing to the pineal gland that is receiving this fortuitous, extraordinary information.
The point is whether neurotypical or neurodiverse, we all have gifts and talents for the divine intelligence to express its light through us. How deep are you willing to venture into your own mind to receive the light and see the same brilliance in another?
