Whether feeling down because of sickness or stress, the Thymus Thump pumps you up.
Are you looking for a quick way to feel more empowered physically and emotionally?
Have you ever noticed that when people are stressed or scared, they often grab their chest? We comfort ourselves and express our strength here. You’ve seen gorillas (and Tarzan) pound on their chest before battle. This action instinctually releases fear and increases energy from the heart and thymus gland.
Our thymus gland is the center of our immune system and connects our emotions with our higher self. Until recently, scientists believed that the thymus shrunk after puberty, which is really odd given that the thymus is often called the “High Heart” in the energy healing community.
The thymus is part of the endocrine system located in the center of our breastbone at the third rib, just above the heart. The thymus matures our all-important T-cells (thymus cells) or “killer cells”, empowering our immune system to attack invaders. The thymus tells white cells what to attack and what to ignore. It stimulates cellular growth in the spleen and lymph nodes. Physical and emotional stress suppresses our immune system and causes illness. An out-of-balance immune system can cause autoimmune disorders such as allergies, arthritis, asthma, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, eczema, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
Recent research has shown that you can boost your immune system by stimulating the thymus gland. Scientists have produced new immune system T-cells in adults reversing the long-held belief that the thymus gland shrinks after puberty. The vibrations stimulate an increase in the maturation and release of white blood cells.
Spiritual and Emotional level
Named our “High Heart”, some believe “our soul and spirit walk hand-in-hand within our thymus gland.” The thymus is located within the Fourth or Heart Chakra. We feel here. The Heart Chakra connects the lower body, symbolizing our physical world, with the upper body, which is aligned with the spiritual. The Heart Chakra controls our heart, thymus, lungs, and our nervous system.
How to Thymus Thump
No, it’s not a dance. The Thymus Thump is a breathing and tapping exercise to add to your daily routine that boosts your immune system, grounds you, and strengthens your connection to Divine energy.
Breath in a couple of deep, relaxing breaths in and slowly blow out.
Gently alternate fist tapping a few inches above your heart in the center of your chest. Alternative tapping balances the right and left brain hemispheres to boost your creativity, focus, and peaceful feelings.
Continue deep breathing and tapping for 15-30 seconds or until you feel your body relax. You’ll involuntarily breathe easier.
Experts recommend doing this 1-3 times per day to boost your immune and spiritual well-being. If you are sick, consider a regimen of four times a day.
