Shifting Perspective with Breath

Are you finding life too fast? Too many pressures. Financial, social, raising your children - trying to make choices that are the best for them. Feeling like you only just got out of bed and all of a sudden the day’s gone and you’re climbing back into bed. Exhausted. Just holding on and going with the life’s just happening to you.

Well, let me shift your perspective. Because remember, our lives are so powered by how we feel. Allow me to give you some peace, just for a moment...

As you may well know by now, I’m passionate about giving you simple life tools to help you shift areas where you are feeling stuck. Follow my little ‘apply’ tool below and give your soul a massage for a moment...

This only takes 5 minutes...
1. Sit for a moment and become aware of the tension in your body. Where are you most tight? In the shoulders, the jaws, is your tummy bloated? Are you feeling foggy in the head? Become aware of the discomfort.
2. Now take your awareness to your breath. Slow it down. Take slow, long inhalations in and take the same amount of time to slowly let the breath out.
3. Decide what you wish to feel. ie: calm, safe, supported, empowered..
4. Now with each breath in, 
feEl this emotion and take it to areas in your body where you’re feeling tight.
5. Choose to be calm, light, happy. Whatever it is for you. And breath by breath, bring this into your body. Know that there is nothing right now but this moment.
Great. Feel better? Don’t let your perpective of the ‘hard’ life get in the way. Because remember, your beautiful cells are just responding to the information your mind is feeding it. Become the ‘feeling’ you wish to have and you will attract more of this to yourself.

Your Life Energy
- the Thymus Gland

Ever catch yourself thinking about an unpleasant situation, a person, a food item, a past or future event and catch yourself holding your breathe as the discomfort flips your tummy. And then you try and try to get that notion out of your head and yet, it prevails. And possibly drives you a bit nutty...
This happens to many of us. And these thoughts are so non constructive and can drive us spare as we try and try to remove them from our heads. And then they pop up in our dreams or we’re out somewhere and something triggers the thoughts again and voila, your whole body goes into response mode in relation to the uncomfortable thought/s.
So, fair to say here, that it’s draining your energy yes. It’s as they say ‘sucking the life out of you. It’s profound to think that when good things happen, we can glance at them with peace, comfort, joy and satiation and then the moment passes. But when we have a recurring negative thought and emotion it can really knock the wind out of us.

Understanding this, I wish to take your attention to your wonderful Thymus Gland. A key gland in the Endocrine system and also part of the Lymphatic System. The thymus gland sits in the centre of your chest, half way between your armpits and the clavicle. This gland is the gland in relation to LIFE ENERGY. It’s functionality is to help create T cells which are released from your thyroid gland and also to help create white blood cells and allow the body to purify itself of toxins.
When we are under a lot of stress, or get stuck in negative mental chatter, the Life Energy of the thymus gland is greatly reduced and therefor your immune system can be compromised, resulting in a feeling of being drained and ultimately manifesting as an illness or ailment.
It’s been scientifically proven that when you thump the thymus gland, it activates and actually swells in size.

Being a Kinesiologist, I always check the life energy of the thymus gland of my clients as I know so well that negative thoughts and emotions are the key things that whack it out. By the time my client presents themselves with an illness or ailment, the life energy of this amazing gland indicates that it’s indeed under stress and not functioning optimally.

So, toay’s tool is designed to lift your life energy. To feel empowered, invigorated, light, peaceful and joyful. A wonderful thing to practice as you head out for Christmas shopping and pass many others who are feeling life is too busy, under stress and ultimately feeling drained and quick to fire. By practicing the Thymus Thump, you are not only lifting your own frequency, but also creating a block to inhale other’s negativities.


1. Using your index and middle finger, thump the thymus repeatedly (how long you do that for is up to you, but 20 seconds is ample).

2. Simultaneously stick your tongue to the roof or your mouth and smile.

3. Practice this 3 - 4 times a day to lift your Life Energy

4. IN RELATION TO... Now, you can use this to raise your Life Energy towards things that would otherwise drain you. ie-feeling hurt or anger towards another or a situation. Think of that person & the emotion that would work better for you. Like feeling love, peace, joy. As you have these thoughts/emotions, thump your thymus, tongue to roof of mouth, smiling. You’ll notice you’ll start to feel different about the person or situation.

You can use this in relation to anything that you feel drains your energy. Just be clear on what it is that you wish to feel in the positive. I practice this when I’m eating, as I practice appreciation for the food I’m eating. The result being that I feel very satiated and energised after I’ve eaten. I also use it if I’m around others that may be ‘heavy’ in energy. The thymus thump is my daily ritual, my daily practice. Give it a go and please, by all means let me know the shifts your experience of life
