Here’s a couple of interesting things to know about the thymus gland… it’s often called the “high heart”, because it’s located literally above the heart, and a tiny bit to the left.
It’s one of the main organs of the immune system
In fact, the thymus is an “immune system school” – where stem cells go once they leave our bone marrow, in order to learn how to be an immune cell.
Which means they have to learn what is “you” and what’s not, so that they only attack invading pathogens and not healthy tissues of your body.
Of course, where we run into health problems is when our immune system gets confused about what’s an invader and what isn’t.
The thymus is at its largest size during childhood up to adolescence. After that, it begins to get smaller. Interesting stuff!
Even more interestingly… the thymus is reactivated as part of the spiritual awakening process. Well before my kundalini awakening happened, I often noticed my thymus pulsing very quickly.
Why would this be going on?
As we awaken, our sense of “self” begins to shift
So much changes and gets stripped away. Our relationship to who we thought we were gets a major reorganisation.
It can happen very quickly and when it does, everything in your mind, body and spirit experiences a major shift, on every level of your being.
So it makes sense that your immune and adrenal systems might need a little re-programming!
In order for our physiology to keep up with the shifts of a spiritual awakening, the thymus has to get to work and re-learn our identity, at the same time that we’re awakening.
Who am I? What’s me? What isn’t?
If you want to stay healthy and in your body, your thymus has to get on board with the new program, and send those messages out to the rest of the body.
At the same time, the adrenals need to learn that what’s going on isn’t dangerous to your life.
As in, a spiritual awakening is (probably) not going to kill you! So the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands also need to get with the new mode of being, too.
This is also why you can have physical health problems occurring alongside a spiritual awakening. The body needs time to adjust!
