A forehead kiss or a kiss on the ‘Third Eye’ is often said to be a connector to one’s soul, i.e. when you kiss someone on his/her forehead, you are connecting to his/her soul. According to a 17th-century philosopher Rene Descartes, the third eye is a Pineal Gland, which is located between the brain’s hemispheres. It is said to be the connector to one’s soul, as it’s a gateway to our inner realm and the symbol of who we really are. It’s there, but one cannot see it. The third eye is also said to play a vital role in circadian rhythmic regulation. When someone kisses you on your forehead, the pineal gland secretes Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone, which lets you sleep well at night by making you feel safe and relaxed.
