Activating Oxytocin – The Master Hormone for Bliss and Bonding

Activating Oxytocin – The Master Hormone for Bliss and Bonding

By Indra

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Known as the “bonding hormone”, oxytocin plays an important role in the neuroanatomy of wellbeing and intimacy. It is associated with various behaviors, including social recognition, pair bonding, orgasm, anxiety, and parental behaviors.

The endocrine system produces and regulates our body’s hormonal activity. The gland known as the hypothalamus creates oxytocin, and it is stored in the pituitary gland, which then releases it to the rest of the body.

Like all systems, this works in complex feedback loop; One hormonal function in one gland then triggers the function of other glands in the system. So for example, when we activate the hypothalamus it then activates the pituitary gland, which then sends signals to other glands within the body – the adrenals, the thyroid, and the gonads – which in turn, are also connected via feedback loops.

Editor’s note: This article refers to the cultivation of oxytocin, a natural hormone produced by the human body. Oxytocin should not be confused with OxyContin/Oxycodone, a pharmaceutical opioid with similar effects to morphine.

In this interaction, the hypothalamus and the pituitary are the “master” glands; the holders of the crown frequency. The crown releases oxytocin, which ‘bonds’ all the rest of the systems in the body into one cohesive song. The natural state of the glands is interactive harmony – the unity consciousness of the crown frequency – and the individual harmonies of the body come together to help create the song of your life; how you are feeling, how your immune and digestive systems are working, what your sexual drives are saying in any given moment in time… This bond is the bond of love.

The Feedback Loop

If we know how to actively cultivate this sense of wellness and love and being that is hardwired within our bodies, we’re inevitably thrive. When we experience love – our own unique Bliss instinct – we gravitate more towards the things that make us feel more love, make us feel more beautiful, more healthy, more satisfied, more abundant. We make choices that are from a place of security and happiness, and safety, rather than from a place of mistrust, and fear, and insecurity about what’s going to happen – am I going to have enough money, is my partner is going to stick around, are my children going to be fine etc. We make a lot of decisions from fear when we don’t know how to actively that secrete the sensation of love.

Like our DNA, our consciousness play an active role in determining when and how our glandular system works. When we learn to activate the glands, the hormones, the sensations, we can activate the frequency of love in our being.

Whether we know it or not, we’re constantly in the process of a feedback loop. When we begin to understand and interact with our body with this awareness, we can go from chasing love to creating. When we understand the neurochemistry of love, we can learn to resonate with the crown frequency and activate that “master hormone” within our own bodies. The feedback loop it creates goes beyond the endocrine system, positively impacting the brain and the immune, circulatory, nervous and digestive systems. So, by developing an intimacy with our body glandular functions, we can give ourselves access to the sensation of love and trigger an energetic feedback loop that creates more love, and supports our physical health.

As part of this feedback loop, other glands also receive the oxytocin hormone, and help to regulate levels in the body by communicating to the hypothalamus that it has had “enough”. What that means is that, through the innate intelligence of our body’s natural frequencies, we feel satiated and satisfied. We experience this love sustainably. We know when we have had enough. We are not trying to satisfy our cravings or addictions to foods, or sex, or emotional fulfillment; neediness of our emotions seem to disappear when we are able to find the feeling of love deep within ourselves. Physically and energetically. It ultimately comes back to the sensation of love.

Ancient Knowledge, Modern Suppression

So many problems in our lives come from not feeling the love that we desire – the love that we desire from our parents, from our peers, from our friends. We want to be in social interactions where we are really bonding, feeling the sense of compassion and support all around. And when we do, when we tune into that unity vibration, we really thrive, we don’t feel like we have as many cravings, we don’t feel lonely, and we don’t resort to addictions to fill that need for love.

Unfortunately, our ability to tune into the frequencies in our bodies has become largely dormant in today’s world. Toxins, chemicals, frequencies and other environmental pollutants have affected the function of our glands and we have lost access to their purest functions, which are intrinsically linked with our experience of emotions and feelings. Social programming teaches us that it is “adult” behavior to suppress our emotional state, and we end up replacing the “natural and native” functions of our glands with the “programmed version”. We expect our endocrine system to behave counter-intuitively, and as a result, our glands act up over time.

For example those who grow up in homes or cultures where suppressing one’s truth is rewarded (tall-poppy syndrome, for example) and those who have silently suffered from manipulation and trauma, often experience issues of the thyroid gland, which is linked to communication. The thyroid is also linked to metabolism, so unexpressed truth can often manifest in the body as as weight gain.

A lot of our power has been taken away from us. Although the ancients held this knowledge, today, we do not know how to use the body. We do not teach our children that we can influence our digestive process, our genetic expression, our immune system, with our intention. And, with the reductionist model still prevailing in modern medicine, we are not taught to know our bodies as a blissful, interactive whole.

Activating the Crown Frequency

The first step to cleansing the body’s frequencies is to learn how to activate the glands. It’s not only important to activate the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, it’s important to activate all the glands within the body so that they are all functioning in perfect harmony, and that feedback loop is in its best possible shape.

Activating Oxytocin- The Master Hormone for Bliss and Bonding

Initially, when you turn the focus of the lens into the physical body, you will develop a simple awareness of its sensations. As you go deeper into that experience, your relationship with the sensations becomes more sophisticated, and in turn, the mind becomes more intelligent at interpreting those sensations.

Within the body system is a full octave of glands and organs that resonate on a certain frequency. When the white light of consciousness enters the body, it refracts and travels through seven different organs and glands with seven different frequencies. Each frequency regulates the characteristics and color of light emitted. For example, when the consciousness light enters the pineal gland, the energy emitted is violet due to the specific vibration of the gland.

Our ‘bliss frequency’ is the light of consciousness experienced through the full octave of frequencies in the body: the seven frequencies, plus the origin of the octave (the high ‘C’). When your instrument is tuned to these frequency, amazing things happen. This is the state where we are most blissful, most beautiful, most thriving and most divine.

To do this we have to expose each gland to its native frequency. When we start to reintroduce it to its natural frequency, it starts to re-program itself back to its healthy, natural state. With your energy centers balanced, everything becomes harmonized. This happens when we allow ourselves to experience the natural bond of love; the frequency of our bliss. It guides us to what supports our being, and to what needs to be healed. For example, if you take a heart that doesn’t know how to experience love. If you give it love from all different directions, it is reminded of its natural frequency and (as science has proven) the body responds by releasing dis-ease and returning to its natural state.

The crown frequency is associated with the unity consciousness; it is the vibration that allows you to see your true nature as a part of the universe. To reintroduce it to its natural frequency, give it the experience of unity and bonding, from all directions. Give it the experience of your bliss.

Sound simple? It is. When you are aligned with your bliss instinct, you feel good. When you feel good, there is no confusion. This is only your yes response: that sense of calmness, relaxation, peace, euphoria, and clarity. As your inner and outer worlds align, your emotions harmonize, your glands harmonize, and you can feel it on all levels of your being. And what may surprise you, especially if you have difficulty trusting yourself at first, is how quickly you will feel your bliss instinct take over as your guide, as the universe begins to conspire to move you in this direction.

Remember; focusing your attention to activate glands is the most powerful tool out there. You can activate the glands by giving it frequencies from medicine, homeopathy, herbs, all sorts of things, but it is not until we take control of our consciousness at all levels, and learn to communicate using sensations, that we see the game really change. Consciously identify and engage the glands. Engage your bliss. It’s about taking the power back into your hands, and learning to activate your body, heal your body, communicate with your glands, and explore the sensations and vibrations that make up your existence.

    Sweet Indra ,thankyou for bringing awareness to the importance of a healthy endocrine system.
    Yes we can activate the glands with the light of concious attention .
    Contemplate this ,Concious Attention coupled with phisicle direction.
    We can work with the body’s Bio Circuitry.
    We can cultivate energys inside the body’s internal Central circuit .
    Part of this dayly spiritual Dicipline,is using the Toungue
    To switch on the body’s potential !
    The tip of our Toungue touching the little lump on the roof of our patat .There is no practice that better strengthens the Pineal gland .give it a try!
    We combine the tongue mudra with two muscle contractions as we breath.With the inward breath we contract the perenium and toilet muscles.then relax the perenium as you breath out and make a wavelike upward contraction up through the torso ,raising energy up to the tongue mudra,and back into the central circuit.
    With each cultivated breath,we feed energy directly to the pineal gland,raise our vibrational level and balance our body to promote Enlightenment ! 😉

    • Thanks Justin. Thanks for reminding me of the tongue mudra. My father is a Brahmin and a yogi and brought us up with all these practices daily. I myself and I certified yoga teacher but life had pushed me to pursue organic knowledge of the body and add to yogic practices. I had a pineal gland awakening at a young age. Since then I have realized there is a lot more going on than just the pineal gland. There is a full-octave of glands and just focusing on pineal gland is not the FULL story. In this article I was bringing attention to the hypothalamus and the pituitary. If you explore my full system- we go into many major glands and explore them. You need them all for a vibrant eco-system!

    Dear Indra
    Thank you very much for your article. It is very inspiring.
    It is great to to read your articles.

  • Thank you Dragutin. Its a pleasure and a blessing to offer them. Aloha !

    i like meditating with the reincarnation of Buddha !

    Our ‘nakedness’ stands as energy portals of the 7 major energy centers in Nature(5 elements), 7 bands per energy center (more if we look at higher vibration/dimensions, celestial bodies and up) …this comprises the common auric field and the corresponding gland function and physiologic responses(typical). Much of maturation and integration is processing and embodying these intensities and ‘content’ consciously. Anything that blocks Light from entering/flowng is a wound. Bliss body is the most natural state though, I don’t really know why, it just IS. 🙂 Great writing Indra, and mature angle from the supersensual body and its chemistry.
