Louise L. Hay writes in her book, Meditations to Heal Your Life, 

If I believe that life is a joy, and I am lovable and my needs are always met,

 then my immune system will feel supported, and my body will more easily fight off dis-ease.”

Louise L. Hay Medications to Heal Your Life

teddybeardoingtriplewarmerspleenhugIt is nice to get to know more about the Meridians.  In Donna Eden’s book, Energy Medicine for Women, she mentions that the Triple Warmer is one of the body’s most potent and least understood energy systems.  It governs: 1.The immune system 2. The emergency response to threat (fight, flee or freeze) and 3. The ability to form physiological and behavioral habits for managing stress or threat.  Donna has several Triple Warmer exercises which will be covered in my posts in the future.  Today, we will look at the Triple Warmer/Spleen Hug.  It is recommended to use this exercise anytime you are upset or need comfort. 

This position simultaneously calms Triple Warmer while energizing the Spleen Meridian:  Wrap your left hand around your right arm just above the elbow.  Wrap the right arm around the left side of your body, underneath your breast.  Hold this position for at least three deep breaths.  Reverse sides.

Many of you are probably too young to remember the character Tarzan, or had little brothers running around the house pounding the center of their chest like a drum pretending to be Tarzan of the jungle.  Now I know that they were doing some great energy healing.  Tapping the area over the thymus gland is a simple technique that awakens the body’s energies, helps the immune system, and increases your strength and vitality.  This is especially true if your immune system is being challenged if you are catching a cold, fighting an infection or if you are feeling a little down.

youngtarzanthymustapThe Tarzan thump is a simple technique:  Take the four fingers of both hands and tap the center between the breasts, or you can make like Tarzan and tap with one fist.  Tap firmly, breathe slowly and deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth for two or three deep breaths.  This is one of those exercises that you can repeat throughout the day which will help stimulate and reset the thymus gland.  Happy thumping.
