The thymus is an endocrine gland that sits in the center of the chest next to the heart. Medically, it is known that the thymus contributes to the development of the immune system. The slower the involution of the thymus – the better your health will be. When we are born, our thymus gland is about the size of an apricot and when we die, the thymus is the size of a shriveled pea.
In spiritual teachings the thymus is associated with the fourth chakra or energy seal which is equated with the consciousness of unconditional love – a love that exists beyond polarity (good, bad, right and wrong.) It is quite fascinating that the thymus begins it’s involution at puberty when our bodies are preparing for sexuality, a time that is consistent with the ultimate duality of opposites attracting and likes repelling. As our energy drops in frequency to match this change in consciousness so begins our awareness of our sexual identity and our loss of childhood “innocence”.
One way to stimulate a resurgence of energy into a body part is to put your consciousness on that body part. The thymus thump stimulates the movement of energy to the area where the thymus is located in the middle of the chest. This can help stimulate your immune system and increase vibrancy.
Take your fingertips and continuously tap the very center of your chest with light to medium pressure for about one minute throughout the day. It’s that simple.
