Thymus—Administrator of the Immune System
The Thymus, the little gland that sits slightly above the heart chakra. The thymus is responsible for most functions of the immune system. The immune cells are born in the bones. They are sent to the thymus to mature.
Energetically, the thymus is very motherly. It is responsible for overall protection of the body. It must be discriminating. As immune system cells mature, some decisions must be made regarding which are suitable for release in the body and which aren’t. This decision is the responsibility of the thymus. The heart center is where we understand our deep, essential truths. When your truth is denied, repressed, ignored, etc. this will create discord in the middle of the chest and can adversely affect the thymus.
It’s interesting to note that the astral body is intimately connected to the immune system. In fact, the center of the astral body and the center of the immune system are both located in the heart chakra area.
