Thymus is the eighth chakra, or high heart, works as a reflex center for higher levels of consciousness.
It is located in the thymus area between the heart and the throat. It governs the thymus gland and various hormonal functions. It is associated with compassion and caring for ones-self on an emotional, mental, spiritual and physical level.
It has been referred to as the “Soul Seat” which is the source of meaning, direction and spiritual longing in life. If this chakra is clouded, one is unable to know what his or her purpose in life is and life appears meaningless and empty. Once this chakra becomes open and balanced, one becomes open to higher spiritual levels with both love and aspiration for the Divine, and the ability to express selfless love to those around you.
It is connected to the color aquamarine, the Earth element and seld-nurturing. Some crystals associated with this chakra are aquamarine, turquoise, amazonite, and apophyllite.
The chakra blends can be used in the bath (5-6 drops per full tub), in massage oils, diffused, blended into a room spray or simply dotted onto a tissue or personal inhaler and carried with you throughout your day for inhalation when necessary.
