Serotonin Facilitates Deep States of Spirituality

Serotonin Molecule Serotonin a chemical present in your brain, that can be released through high states of meditation or through the use of psychedelic drugs, has been proved to make you susceptible to spiritual experiences.

A team of Swedish researchers had found that the presence of a receptor that regulates general serotonin activity in the brain correlates with people’s capacity for transcendence, the ability to apprehend phenomena that cannot be explained objectively.

Because of the mystical experiences users of psychedelic drugs like LSD have had scientists have long suspected that serotonin influences spirituality. Although now they have proof from brain scans linking the capacity for spirituality with a major biological element.

Serotonin NeuronReporting in the American Journal of Psychiatry, the researchers see the evidence as contradicting the common belief that religious behavior is determined strictly by environmental and cultural factors. What it means is those with a higher concentration of serotonin receptors will therefore most likely show a stronger inclination towards experiences where they see God or they experience higher connections with themselves and the universe.

Those whose brain scans showed the most receptor activity proved on personality tests to have the strongest proclivity to spiritual acceptance. Apart from the elevate consciousness experiences, Serotonin is in charge of moderating mood, metabolism, and sexuality.

We do not need to injest these chemicals to experience effects like this… Our brain naturally produces chemicals and we can consciously signal for their production. “Science has now uncovered that the vibrational information and commensurate feeling states of Love, translates through our physiology to stimulate a series of complex neuro-biochemical reactions resulting in the production of vital chemical substances that promote well-being. Specifically, the brain’s limbic system, has been noted to be profoundly influenced by the vibrational language of Love. The limbic system operates by influencing the endocrine system, which is the main system that produces and coordinates key… Read more »
