Feel Better: Thump Your Thymus
Thumping at your thymus, in the center of your chest, can help bring up your life energy.
It’s a simple but very effective energy technique that involves tapping, thumping or scratching on the thymus point.
The word thymus comes from the Greek word ‘thymos’ which means “life energy.” The thymus gland lies just beneath the upper part of the breastbone in the middle of the chest.
Its role is in keeping your own life energy vibrating in high frequency.
When the thymus gland is in harmony it can increase your strength and vitality.
Dr. John Diamond, author of “Life Energy” maintains the thymus gland monitors and regulates the body’s energy flow. Therefore when there is an imbalance in energy flow, the Thymus Thump can help correct it.
The thymus gland is linked between the mind and the body thus when there is emotional or physical disturbance can cause the thymus gland to shrink and cause depletion in this vital life energy.
How to do it:
You may thump in the middle of your chest with your fist (think Tarzan) on the point shown on the chart. Or, you may want to rub softly or firmly or scratch with four fingers of your hand.
Do this for about 20 seconds and breathe deeply in and out. You can also add an affirmation such as “all is well in my world.”
You may know when you have activated the thymus gland as you will feel a little tingling or a subtle feeling of ‘joy’ or ‘happiness.’
Another variation is to do three thumps at a time but emphasise the first thump more firmly. For some people it may take a little time before you ‘feel’ anything. Persevere and you will get it and well worth it.
Do this every day to ensure your life energy and thymus gland is activated but do several times a day if you are suffering from anxiety, panic attacks or stress and allow your life energy to come alive.
Try to make it a regular practice.
I end my shower every morning with the water is still on me with about 7-10 three beat (da-da-da) thymus thumps.
So what’s up the thymus?
The thymus is your immune system’s surveillance gland.
This gland produces and “educates” T-lymphocytes (T cells), also known as “killer cells”, which are critical cells of the adaptive immune system.
As modern allopathic medicine attempts to overtake the responsibilities of a healthy immune system, the system stagnates and atrophies, becoming even less able to fulfill its responsibilities.
But even in an atrophied thymus gland, the production of T cells continues throughout adult life.
Use the thymus thump as a means to reinstate the singularly important position of our thymus gland: to keep it active and bolster our immune system.
Thumping your thymus will:
- Stimulate all of your energies
- Boost your immune system
- Increase your strength and vitality
- Help it regain (if lost) balance which has been known to lessen allergies
Now, go THUMP!
