Do you have a childlike joy and love for life? Are you stimulated by finding ways to bring more joy and love into the world? Are you logical and analytical, yet balance your mental acuity by using your intuition? Are you stimulated by new ideas and concepts especially when you can use them to bring happiness? Do you tend to make life fun, approaching it with a childlike openness and innocence? If this describes you, you could be a Pituitary body type
The bottom line for the Pituitary is to “feel happy.” This is the essence of what makes life fulfilling – feeling and sharing happiness. Children are naturally happy and the Pituitary body type, more than any other, has been able to retain this quality and loves to share it.
The motivation for the Pituitary is “stimulation.” Stimulation that is most rewarding is mental and intuitive – showing up as new ideas and concepts in innovative ways. Albert Einstein is a classic example of the Pituitary body type. He is curious, innovative and playful. In his own words, describing himself: "Why is it that nobody understands me, yet everybody likes me?", and "I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious."
Core Emotional Issues
The fear of wisdom is stored in the pituitary gland, and this is a core emotional issue of the Pituitary Body Type. Wisdom is the clarification of knowledge. Clarification of knowledge requires experiencing something new and moving out of your comfort zone. It means learning through your experiences. It is the experience of knowing how to apply the knowledge that takes you to the other side, which is "Illumination". Illumination brings light into the darkness of limitation. Limitation shows up as any area of your life that is not working. The fear of wisdom can be released using Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
. Other core emotional issues include the fear of aloneness, abandonment and restriction.
The life lesson of the Pituitary is "to emanate purity". Emanating purity requires letting go of limiting patterns and beliefs. It requires introspection and awareness to identify the areas of limitation and illuminate them.
Points of Connection
The dominant senses for the Pituitary are Mental and Spiritual. This causes them to have an active curious mind and strong intuition. Their playful, fun-loving nature allows them to connect with their emotions. Hiking or walking in nature allows them to connect with their physical side.
Activities that require mind/body integration like aerobic dancing, martial arts, Tai Chi, tennis, racquetball, hiking or walking are especially beneficial.
Celebrities with Pituitary body type include Sai Baba, John Gray, Lainie Kazan, Albert Einstein and Aretha Franklin.
