Speaking of energy... I promised to bring you the different segments of Eden Energy Medicine's (EEM) Daily Energy Routine (DER). If you recall, the DER is a routine that energizes and harmonizes the nine energy systems that get touched with EEM. Along with meditation and good coffee, it's one of the most fantastic ways to start your day on the right foot, setting the tone for success and self-empowerment. Last week we worked on stomach/under eye and K27. This week we'll finish up the 4 Thumps with Thymus and Spleen.
The Thymus is a very important gland in our body; it supports our immune system, helps our body handle stress and shock, and makes T-cells which help the body fight disease. To activate the thymus, pretend you're a gorilla and pound (or tap) your chest, right on your breast bone, for 30-45 seconds. Go ahead - do it now. It's so invigorating!! (Don't believe me? Look at how much fun we're having in the picture below.) And if it feels right, call out like a gorilla too. Let everyone know you are ready for action! Feel free to do that throughout the day, especially if you are feeling tired or run down.
The Spleen is also a vital energy in our body. Spleen is the Mother Metabolizer and helps us to metabolize foods, substances, emotions, thoughts, etc. Spleen governs blood flow, infection, inflammation, and supports the immune system. It also has a special and important relationship to our fight/flight (we go into great detail of this in EEM101) so know that Spleen has a priority role in our energy system.
To stimulate spleen energy, act like a monkey and tap the sides of your ribs (feeling free to "Ooo Ooo Aaa Aaa") or stay your homo sapien self and rub underneath the breasts. Spleen does many jobs and could usually benefit from more energy so don't hesitate to do several times a day. Before and after meals are great for me as well as after conversations that might be a little more intense than I expected.
So now that you have the 4 Thumps (in 2 videos), do them daily and frequently. They will keep your energies pumping with goodness and you'll feel ooohhhh sooooo gooood.
Stay tuned for next week when I introduce the neurolymphatics, another set of wonderful clearing agents. Until then, stay in peace and connect with any questions.
