3rd Switch Introduction
THE LUNGS + THE THYROID GLAND
Why is it so important and beneficial to have this switch turned on?
★ THE LUNGS
We’ve established that the heart is the king of your internal organs. Well, the lungs are his first advisor. The lungs are the organ of your safety, support, and strength. Healthy lungs supply every part of your body with oxygen, ensure that your immune system functions optimally, and make your skin radiant and clear. If your lungs can’t breathe properly, your heart is neither properly massaged nor does it have enough space.
★ THE THYROID
The thyroid gland is in charge of your metabolism and emotions. When your thyroid functions optimally, you have the strength to express yourself and your needs, you don’t suppress your emotions, your body maintains a healthy weight, and you have no problem absorbing nutrients. The parathyroid glands are responsible for your body’s absorption of calcium and consequently the health of your bones.
The lungs and the thyroid gland belong to the element of metal in Taoist Medicine, because out of all the 10 switches they are the most connected to your emotions. You see metal is only useful when it is soft and pliable because that’s when it can be shaped. The thyroid gland and the lungs need to be opened, breathed into, and softened.
If this switch is turned off, then you are probably holding a lot of suppressed emotions in your chest, have difficulties with letting go, forgiving, and living in the present moment. You are really hard on yourself, blame yourself, and sabotage yourself. You carry heavy baggage from the past and it is preventing you from reaching your fullest potential and living a happy, fulfilled, and free life. Proper breathing and a healthy thyroid gland are the key to unlocking your courage, confidence, forgiveness, gentleness, and abundance.
