Did you know…this simple, time-tested trick can instantly unblock your body’s energy flow?
The thymus gland was named from the Greek word “thymos,” which literally translates to “life energy.” Today, I am going to share with you a simple method of stimulating your thymus gland based on proven acupressure techniques from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
This simple technique takes just a few minutes, and allows you to activate your thymus and unlock your full energy potential. Using this free and almost instantaneous technique will reduce your stress…elevate your mood…increase your happiness…and boost your body’s immunity and disease resistance.
The Thymus Gland: What is It and What Does it Do?
The gland’s central location—beneath the upper part of the breastbone in the middle of the chest—is no coincidence. According to Dr. John Diamond, author of Life Energy: Unlocking the Hidden Power of Your Emotions to Achieve Total Well Being, the thymus monitors and regulates the body’s energy flow.
Research tells us that the thymus…
- Plays a vital role in regulating the body’s immune system.
- Links the mind and body—one of the first physical markers of stress is the shrinkage of the thymus gland
For centuries, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have appreciated the importance of the thymus.
Tap into “The Will to Be Well”
Dr. Diamond believes the most important part of any healing process is keeping your life energy high. If you don’t begin by establishing a basis of wellness and vitality, any medications or treatments you try will be worthless. “The true wonder drug,” Diamond states, “is the power and the vitality that is within us, our will to be well.”
The thymus gland is central to our “will to be well.”
At birth, the thymus gland is almost the same size as the heart and lungs. With age, however, the thymus atrophies. By the time a person is in his or her 40s or 50s, the thymus has very often shrunk down to a small mass of fat.
Fortunately, the process is reversible. Natural health practitioner Noreen Barron says, “Tapping on the thymus has been scientifically shown to improve its function.” In fact, says Barron, tapping can cause the thymus to grow!
Marian Buck-Murray, a nutrition coach and EFT practitioner, told Huff Post Healthy Living, “[Tapping the thymus] boosts energy, relieves stress, and increases strength and vitality.”
Simple Thymus Tapping Technique for More Life Energy
Every expert recommends a slightly different procedure, but the essentials of thymus tapping almost explain themselves. First, of course, you must locate your thymus—remember, it’s right in the center of your chest.
For a speedy burst of energy, Buck-Murray recommends “tapping your thymus with your fingertips for 20 seconds, while slowly and deeply breathing in and out.”
Diamond is slightly more specific, adding that ideally you should tap “in the waltz beat, a one-two-three count, with the emphasis on the first count.” This will have the most energizing effect. He also suggests repeating the affirmation: “My life energy is high, I am full of love.”
