The higher heart chakra is a minor chakra located between the throat (Vishuddha) and heart (Anahata) chakra. The color of this chakra is peach (golden pink) and the characteristics streaming in the ray are bliss, comfort, enlightenment, and breath.
This chakra, which is also referred to as the unified heart, high heart, or soul seat, is the seat of empathy, compassion, patience, joy, peace, serenity, balanced emotions and unconditional love.
It is also the center, which records trauma and pain, acting as a library of negative events in the life of the person and the person’s ancestry.
The thymus gland, at the forward base of the neck, is a pinkish-grey, two-lobed organ that lies under the mediastinal area of the chest, a little above the heart and below the thyroid.
The organ is called thymus since its shape resembles that of a thyme leaf. When the thymus is sliced for a histology study, it will reveal a deeper layer called the medulla.
This gland plays a crucial role in the immunological defense system, stimulating the production of white blood cells that fight infection and disease.
Despite the fact that the thymus gland has its growth stopped after childhood, it continues to be very active, collaborating with the immune system. Thymus grows when we are happy and shrinks when we are stressed out. It can weigh only 5 grams in elderly adults.
Along with the spinal cord and the adrenals, the thymus gland is directly associated with the 5 senses, to the sense of consciousness and awareness, and to the center of language.
„The Thymus chakra responds to all sounds made by you, and any with which you are in contact. There is much sensitivity in the area of the higher heart chakra because of the bony structure that overlays it.
When you sing or shout, chant or pray, or listen to music, whether it be recorded or played live by many musicians, the Thymus chakra is stimulated. From here is directed renewed energy as a result of the sound.” – Renee Brodie’s quote.
When your higher heart chakra or thymus chakra is open:
Opening the thymus chakra supports the processing of higher vibratory energies and the integration of an immense flow of spiritual energy in and through our physical body.
Working within the higher heart helps you create a connection between your physical body and soul body.
Further, the higher heart chakra is a potent healing energy channel that links us to the earth and to the heavens. It is our connection to the soul’s world. This is the chakra of connection and peace, of alignment and attunement with all that is spiritual.
As this chakra becomes balanced and open, higher spiritual levels of awareness are accessed. There is a strong link to the divine, as well as a devout love and aspiration for God. Selfless, unconditional love is also an attribute of a balanced and healthy thymus chakra.
This chakra allows you to vocally express the emotions generated in the heart. When compassion is awakened, the desire to heal is strong. Vibrational activation of the chakra can help in stimulating thymus function, particularly when coupled with selfless devotion and gratitude.
