When our eyes are open and receiving stimulus all the time, that in its self is blocking the pituitary and pineal gland because we're not using those gateways for what they're meant for. If the human eyes are always open, then third eye never gets a chance to bring in information, and we don't get to see through that perspective. - Anahata Ananda

Power Quotes From The Show

Physical Correlation of Blocked Energy

"We've learned from different experiences to shut down and bottle our emotions. The physical correlation of that energy being blocked or pushed down causes us to have digestive issues. And we have anger and resentment but we're not safe to share it. Then it's common to crave alcohol to put out that fire because there's no safe or healthy way to express anger and rage. This is where liver issues, stomach issues, and acidity starts to happen. And that creates more physical disease in the body.

If I believe that my voice doesn't matter, if I believe that I'm not safe, just the nervous system connecting to those beliefs starts a whole cascade of chemicals in the body where I don't feel safe. And so that in itself creates dissonance in the body and the organs and the glands start contracting because they're in fight or flight." - Anahata Ananda

It's Our Responsibility to Evolve

"We are evolving and we have more support: We have books, online programs, support groups, healing, transformation. We have tools that our grandparents and parents didn't have. Because of that we also have the responsibility to contribute to evolution." - Anahata Ananda

What Is Your Lesson?

"Too much indulgence in a thing, whether it's sex, or ayahuasca, or sugar, or alcohol. It's still the same clean-up process of taking accountability for this state of where I am and asking the question - not through guilt or shame: What is this showing me and what is the lesson here? And what support do I need to make a change if I'm ready to make a change?" - Anahata Ananda

Open Your Third Eye

"You're processing your external reality through what you can see rather than closing your eyes and seeing what's inside.When we don't use our third eye, when we don't connect with our crown, it's like not using a muscle - it begins to atrophy.

We're only receiving data from our human eyes which is like looking through the lens of truth through a straw and thinking that's all there is. Social media, Netflix, the news, the screen... This is the truth, this is reality.

We need to put away the screen that is funneling what agenda I should be prioritizing. If we don't have the discipline to say: I need to turn it off so that I can actually look at and perceive the soul's screen, the divine consciousness, the sixth chakra around perspective, and see the bigger picture. Because when we close the human eyes that look through a straw, now the third eye can see." - Anahata Ananda

Are You Ready to Transform?

"We're all having our own level of awareness and transformation, what we're willing to change and what we're not. And that's ok. It takes courage to be doing the work. We'll be ready for some of it and not ready for other. - Anahata Ananda
