"PINE CONE" - Day 19 of 30 Day Challenge

If you have Pine Trees you have Pine cones, Pine Cones = Pine Tree State to those of us that live in Maine. However, with some research (because I am a spiritual person and everything has a spiritual meaning).  "The Pine cone resembles the Pineal Gland and the Pineal Gland is known as the "third eye","dream center" and "mystic seed". The Pineal Gland is an integral the production of melatonin which regulates the natural rhythms of sleep according to our environment. The pine cone, like the pineal gland, is extremely affected by Light, and takes action according to what it senses.  Cones will open themselves up to the sun’s rays, and close up during cloudy or stormy days"
"Mystics have also suspected the pineal gland is a receptor of Spiritual Light too – with the ability to open up to mystical awareness upon the presence of an ascended master and during periods of enlightened consciousness.
So what’s this got to do with the pine cone?
I find it fascinating that not only do the pine cone and pineal gland share similarities in appearance, but they are also both keenly affected by Light
The pine cone, like the pineal gland, is extremely affected by Light, and takes action according to what it senses.  Cones will open themselves up to the sun’s rays, and close up during cloudy or stormy days.  It has to do with continuation of the seed-line.  Sunny days offer more arid conditions and the tiny seedlings nestled in the scales of the pine cone can become airborne more easily.  Damp or rainy days are crumby conditions for seed spreading, so the pine cone just closes up shop during these weather conditions."  (see link for more info)

All of these characteristics can be compared to how we as humans operate. Did you think you would ever be compared to a Pine Cone or have similar characteristics? You should stop and think about everything around us and how many things you can compare yourself, your personality or your behavior to. Think about that...research it. Everything has meaning.

Always make it a great day! Cheers!   Visit my Etsy page to purchase this or to see the other items I have to offer.
