Pushing Past Your Limits of Potential With An Ancient Mineral

How do we reach the highest level of human potential??? 

Biohacking has proven to be one of the greatest frontiers for those looking to master the human body. However, focusing solely on understanding the biology of your body is limiting, and the same is true for deep explorative work of the mind[1]. 

So then, what’s left for us to tap into if we want to truly expand our potential? Our energy.

Specifically, exploring our concept of what makes us “us” and expanding our understanding of what our true potential is.

If I’ve lost you, let me backup a bit.

You’ve likely heard that we only use about 10-12% of our brain capacity, right? This is a common saying that refers to the fact that our conscious mind (the one that we’re quite familiar with) is really only driving about 10% of our behaviors, while our subconscious mind (primarily driven by the programming we’ve picked up during our life) is driving the rest.

This means we’re observing most of our human experience through our subconscious programming. You can pick up programming at any point in your life, but most of it gets going in your early childhood. Unfortunately, programs implanted into your consciousness can be extremely limiting, creating loops that keep you stuck in that 10-12%.

The good news is, in essence, the limitations you experience in life only reflect the level of consciousness you’re holding. 

The bad news; unless you know how to tap into what’s unconscious, you’ll keep living in that limited cycle. 

How To Tap Into Your Unconscious Potential Energy 

There are several known practices that have been developed or resurrected to expand human consciousness over the last couple of decades. For instance, meditation practices going back thousands of years are understood to help activate different levels of mind, shifting the types of awareness you can tap into.

More recently, psychotherapy practices like EMDR and hypnotherapy are becoming popular for their ability to help us peel back the layers of the subconscious mind and explore what may be hiding in the shadows of our psyche[2][3]. 

While these practices are gaining a fair amount of traction, another big player in the mind-expanding game is the use of psychedelic drugs, primarily psychedelic mushrooms (rich in the active compound psilocybin) and ayahuasca (which stimulates the release of Dimethyltryptamine or DMT)[4][5]. 

Among these varying techniques and practices, the one that’s most exciting to me is the use of DMT. Why? DMT is a chemical released from your pineal gland, a tiny, mysterious little gland that sits right in the center of your head. 

Why do I say mysterious? Going back to ancient Egypt, the pineal gland was understood to play a role in the function of your “third eye,” or “spiritual eye.” In fact, if you’ve ever seen a picture of the Egyptian Eye of Horus, you’ll notice the remarkable similarities between the Eye and the pineal gland – that’s no coincidence[6]. 

Other traditions, like those found in ancient India, equate the pineal gland with the seat of the soul[7]. 

 Many people report that after an ayahuasca ceremony, they feel more connected to all living things, and they describe an understanding that there is an energy that’s much greater than us, an intelligence behind the seeming chaos of our modern world. 

 While I don’t claim to be an expert in theology, nor am I one to push any type of religious rhetoric, I can’t deny that there is a strong fascination with the world beyond our ordinary senses. This, my friends, is why I am particularly interested in DMT. 

How Does DMT Work?

This is where we’re going to drift from the world of scientific research and step one foot into the energetic world, which, unfortunately, hasn’t gotten as much attention from scientific institutions as it should.

 How does DMT produce a state of mind that allows people to feel connected to the universe as a whole? While we may not have studies to back up the theories, many people that have studied the substance suggest that DMT may be able to unlock the latent intelligence that sits in our subconscious and even beyond the subconscious to the superconscious mind.

By easing the accelerator that keeps us looping around the same programs in our conscious minds, DMT opens the gateways and off-ramps, allowing us to explore other highways of consciousness that we’ve long abandoned. 

Pretty fascinating.

That said, I don’t really have the time or interest in taking ayahuasca every time I want to tap into my full potential beyond my conscious mind. If you’re not familiar, an ayahuasca journey can take around 6 hours, and you’re pretty “out there” during most of the trip if you know what I mean, so it’s not exactly something you can use in your everyday life.

Activating DMT With The Help Of An Ancient Mineral 

Ormus is a mineral used since ancient times to decalcify the pineal gland and activate one’s ability to hold mental focus in a very high state of consciousness. What makes Ormus unique is that it’s held in an M-state or spin-state. The theory is that when brought into the body, either transdermally or by ingesting it, consciousness is held in a state between form and frequency. 

Due to its activity in the pineal gland, Ormus is thought to enhance DMT production and therefore unlock the potential energy held within our physical, mental, and energetic body. 

My friends at BioQuantum Skin Care have developed a specific type of Ormus supplement with scalar technology that’s specifically meant to enhance cellularity while freeing your consciousness from the never-ending limiting loops of your programmed subconscious.
