Your thymus gland is located under your breastbone, about two inches below your jugular notch. It is one of the main organs involved in your immune health. The gland is larger when we are younger, and then, as we exit puberty, it begins to shrink. As it atrophies and we grow older, the thymus slowly loses its ability to defend against infections.
While scientists and doctors can tell us how the thymus physically functions or malfunctions (when the body attacks its own cells), you can still assist your own body in healing and boost your overall well-being with EFT tapping.
Since we learned in childhood to reach for food to comfort ourselves, our expanding waistline is oftentimes linked with us getting attacked by another and how we feel we are able to defend ourselves. And if you feel you cannot protect yourself against the onslaught of others, you end up feeling weak. Your inner critic may even resort to harassing you with its slew of morale-lowering mush. As a result of either one of those, your immune system may respond accordingly and not function optimally.
If you have a tendency to get sick with the cold or the flu at any time of the year OR if you have other health and pain issues, it’s to your advantage to thump your thymus on a regular basis.
Below are two different scripts to utilize, so you can continue to enjoy excellent health and rapid healing (when the need arises).
SCRIPT 1: If you have a normal-functioning immune system, gently tap with your fingertips on the bone above your thymus gland, while saying:
Even though my thymus’ abilities supposedly decline as I age, I utilize EFT tapping to experience continued good health. And even if I occasionally fall off the health wagon, EFT allows me to heal rather quickly and to send lots of compassion to my inner child. Regardless of how old I am today, I still allow my thymus gland to easily defend against the outside invasion of bacteria and other pathogens that come in contact with my being. As I mature, my thymus produces more-than-adequate amounts of T-cells for me to remain fit. I have come to understand how my body reacts to what my mind is saying to itself; as such, I am learning to be gentler with myself. And while I may not be able to control or totally avoid the actions of others, I can certainly empower myself to deal with my emotions, as they surface or get triggered by another. My thymus is amazing and I let it care for my physical body, which is strong, resilient, and capable of many wondrous feats. A bonus to keeping myself healthy is that I am less likely to reach for food to comfort myself—and fewer calories consumed helps me reach my weight-loss goals sooner. My immune system easily distinguishes normal, friendly cells from foe or invasive cells. With EFT tapping, I can extend the optimal functions of my thymus for many years into the future. Because I am sending love to my thymus with EFT tapping, all my T-cells efficiently mature and assist my body in defending itself. And by keeping my immune system at its peak performance, I naturally slow down the physical aging of my body. I tap, tap, tap on my thymus and enjoy excellent health as a result, any time of the year.
SCRIPT 2: If you have an autoimmune disease, gently tap with your fingertips on the bone above your thymus gland, while saying:
Despite what my doctors have told me, I now give myself permission to heal my body and reverse the effects of this dis-ease I am currently experiencing. And even though my immune system isn’t yet back to functioning as it should, I love and accept myself without judgment. At some point in my life, I learned not to attack others or to defend myself. Instead, I turned my battles inward and I now find my body attacking itself. Luckily, I use EFT to defend and care for my delicate psyche, so I can safely and easily reduce any physical or emotional pain coursing through my nervous system. I realize I don’t have to allow my own cells to attack the other healthy cells in my body. In its place, I gently tap on my thymus to acknowledge the internal conflict going on in my being. As I deal with and heal my suppressed emotions, I allow my physical body to swiftly return to balance. With EFT tapping, I have the ability to talk my body into doing the most incredible things, when it comes to healing. I give myself permission to tap myself miraculously back into optimum health and well-being. All of my emotions are OK to have and to express. When I tap, I am less likely to be attacked by my inner critic. I am also less susceptible to be triggered by the insults or unkind behavior of others. I allow my immune system to function properly and to make the appropriate amount of T-cells for me to enjoy vibrant health. I send love to the parts of my body that are experiencing any pain or discomfort. I compassionately acknowledge the painful events and experiences I have had to date and now allow instant healing to occur in any and all parts of my physical being. EFT empowers me and allows me to feel strong and capable. I tap, tap, tap to remind myself to love myself and my body.
