Seven Glands for Seven Spirits, Part 4: Purification and the Thymus Gland

Life flows from above, down, inside, out, like this cool, clear mountain stream.

I am the Spirit of Purification

I protect the life and this temple from harm

I bring heaven and earth together as one

I give assurance to my world that all is well


Young Thymus Gland

This graphic by artist David Stefaniak depicts the young thymus gland inside the upper chest cavity. (Click on it to enlarge) Variously called the “angelic gland” in Gray’s Anatomy, the thymus is rather large up until about the age of puberty when it shrinks allowing the guileless child to lose its angelic quality as it matures so that it can live in the coarser “fallen” world without being crushed.

The T cells of the thymus gland migrate to the marrow of the long bones where they will perform their roles ruthlessly defending the body temple from invaders up until the “golden years” (around age 70) when they migrate back to the chest to reconstitute the thymus gland.  Shakespeare poetically describes this “sixth age” of man as the age of “second childishness and mere oblivion.  Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”  Everything, that is, except sweet memories of years gone by, some perhaps not so sweet.  The elderly regain that golden glow of childhood as their carefree spirit shines through their countenance once again and they return to their childlike innocence and playfulness, coupled with a certain gained sense of assurance about who they are and why they are here.    

Assurance is the gift of the Spirit of Purification given freely through the Thymus gland, a gift that we would do well to receive and nourish for ourselves, as well as accommodate in our elders rather than deprive them of their usefulness as wisdom bearers for the young.  Young people belong with the elderly, and in some cultures this is their traditional way of life.  Assurance comes through purity of heart, and the heart is purified by love burning through it.  For one to reach the Golden Years with a purified heart—or any period during spiritual maturity—is a wonderful blessing, for the pure in heart see God in everyone and everything.   


The Thymus  gland—a large, flat grayish structure located just behind the sternum (breastbone) and in front of the heart, like a shield protecting this vital organ—plays a key role in the process of distributing nutrients and elimination toxins.  Here is the heart of what is referred to as the “immune system,” situated at about the level of the paps on a man’s chest.  In the context and order of the frequencies in the light spectrum, it would radiate a wavelength of yellow-gold with a vibratory pitch correlating with C Natural.  

[Note: The Heart Chakra resonates to the musical pitch of F Natural. The musical pitch C is the fifth harmonic in the F Major chord (F A C). In my attunement with sacred sound service I use this chord to provide a harmonic wave of sound to carry the healing current of love in balancing this sacred energy center. Playing the F quartz crystal bowl over the chest affords a profound and deep sense of peace and helps to deepen one’s awareness of love’s presence in the heart.] 

In the Book of Revelation, John describes the One in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks as being “…girt about the paps with a golden girdle.”   This area would include the entire upper thorax contained within the rib cage—the lungs, the heart, the thymus and spleen, and the solar plexus.   This entire section of the anatomy is taken up with activities relating to circulation, purification and ascension.  The golden glow of love fills this area with substance so that these activities are carried out as gently and painlessly as possible.

The Thymus accomplishes its tasks largely by way of the lymphatic system. The function of the lymphatic system is to pick up the excess fluid and metabolic waste between the cells and tissues, destroy what does not belong in the body and put it all back into circulation through the bloodstream. Much like a cleanup crew on a construction site, lymph brings building blocks of nutrients to the cells and distributes lymphocytes (white blood cells) throughout the body to destroy pathogens as it sweeps up and carries away the metabolic waste. There are some 75 million on these lymphocytes at work among the approximately 75 trillion cells in the body temple.   Having no pump to move it, as does the bloodstream, lymphatic fluid depends on the movement of muscles for its circulation.  Exercise, especially brisk walking and rebounding, helps to move this fluid around throughout the body.


The Thymus gland is the control center for the sizable electromagnetic energy of the heart. It is with this energy field that the body maintains its integrity and protective hedge. Although we speak of an “immune system,” the reality is that the body does not have an immune system in as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality, considering the vast distribution of lymphocytes throughout the body. Systems such as the skeletal, respiratory, reproductive, endocrine, central nervous system, and others are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses. Our “immune system” may best be described as an immune alliance between various systems and organs which, when coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of any and all non-self elements and associated dis-ease factors that are not a natural part of the internal landscape of the body.

This immune alliance is composed of the thymus gland, which develops the immature lymphocytes ; the spleen which produces antibodies and which includes the lymphatic and blood circulatory systems; the long bones of the skeletal system which contain bone-marrow that gives birth to leukocytes (white blood cells). Then there are the organs of the digestive system: the stomach and pancreas, which make Hydrochloric acid and enzymes that destroy ingested parasites and carcinogens, the intestinal flora which destroy pathogenic microbes and manufacture B12, and the liver which detoxifies the blood and produces enzymes that break down dead tissue cells and repair those that are damaged. So when I speak of the “immune system,” it is to this alliance that I am referring and not to some specific system in the body. (Excerpted and adapted from Sacred Anatomy)



And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh an abomination or maketh a lie…. (Rev. 21:27)  

These words from Revelation refer to the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, that comes down from God out of Heaven.  The human temple of the Living God was designed to be the means by which the Holy City and New Jerusalem should come into the world.  The words “City” and “Jerusalem” here stand for a state of consciousness.  The seat of consciousness in the body temple resides in the brain. Therefore, the brain was designed to be well protected by the Spirit of Purification which dwells with the Thymus gland and employs the immune system of the body temple to keep toxins from entering the inner sanctum of the brain.  Here in the cranium, as we saw in the first two parts of this series, is where the Spirit of Love and the Spirit of the Womb work their sacred alchemy through the Pineal and Pituitary glands bringing forth the Spirit of Life through the Thyroid gland in the throat. The Thymus gland is the fourth of the seven endocrine glands.

This was the original divine design from the beginning: that no defilement, abomination or lie should enter the holiest place in the body temple. That design, of course, has been thwarted—the integrity of the inner sanctum compromised—by the self-serving human ego that has usurped the throne of deity in the human temple. What we now have in the Body of Mankind is an immune system that has been weakened and compromised by the absence of love in human expression and activity.  Fear has chronically infected the human heart shutting down the Body’s immune system. Disease and death are everywhere at hand. Nevertheless, the Divine Design remains, as the Creator stays with his creation for as long as it exists and continues to make love available to it. Fear needs to be cast out of the heart and soul of Man. Only by perfect love can this be accomplished. 

Perfect love is a fire that burns away the bonds holding the heart a prisoner to fear.  Fear is a darkness.  It is nothing.  It is the absence of light.  It is faith in evil. Fear has cast a shadow of disease and death throughout the third dimension of the material world where the human species hangs by a thread over the abyss of impending extinction.  

But the Earth has not been detained in its renewal and transition into the fourth dimension presently underway.  Ascension is in progress—for the Earth and for Mankind.  The fourth dimension is characterized by the purifying and transforming fire of love. It is where the Spirit of Purification wields the flaming sword that keeps the way to the Tree of Life in the fifth dimension, and no soul can get past this Angel and partake of the fruit of the Tree of Life without letting go of fear and embracing Love utterly and without reservation.  

Every soul is important to the larger scheme of things and is loved more than anyone can imagine.  You are loved beyond your wildest dreams.  Let you love light shine without condition or concern to be loved in return.  It is we who are in need of returning love to the One who has loved us first and from all eternity with a greater love than we could every muster in our human hearts.



The Menorah
Seven Golden Candlesticks

“And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” (Rev. 1: 12)

The Spirit of Purification works at this fourth vibratory level in the body temple to guard the sacred space of the upper region in the cranium and keep anything from entering here that would defile or in any way hurt this sanctum. The golden essence of love’s light is constantly intensified and clarified in order to assure a pure-hearted expression of creative power. Thus the color gold was seen by John in the region of the paps of this one like unto the Son of man.

Uranda closes Lesson Forty-two in his Steps to Mastership with these reassuring words:

“And girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” And He is girt about the MIDDLE PART OF HIS BEING with a Golden Girdle, the Golden Girdle of PERFECT SOUL EXPRESSION which surrounds and fills the vital parts of Being. The Solar Center, which is the throne of so-called subconscious mind; the Heart, the throne of all feeling and emotion; the Lungs, the throne of Spirit cleansing and Life-giving—ALL are GIRT ABOUT with the PERFECT BEING OF OUR FATHER, the MASTER-SELF WITHIN. Such must be the state of those who would enter in and SEE the glories of Fourth Plane Being. Meditate upon these revelations and let them fill thy Life and Light thy Way, that thy attainment may be sure.”

The only thing standing in the way of attainment in Fourth Plane Being is the veil of the heart which connects the third level of being with the fourth. This veil has become laden with the residue of past experiences, both individual and collective, so that it has taken on a dense, opaque texture and consistency. To enter in here this veil must be pierced—or, as in the Master Jesus’ experience, “rent in twain,” through forgiveness and utter abandon to the will of the Father. He left the third and entered into the fourth dimension of being, passing through the veil of the collective impure heart. But he didn’t stop there.  He went all the way to his Father in the Seventh Heaven. Waiting on the other side of the veil, in the fourth dimension, is the incarnate angel, the One I Am, standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, one’s true identity. 

By the light of this center in the Fourth Plane I am able to know with assurance who I am and what my purpose is on earth. I know myself as an angel, an emissary of heaven’s light, who has come on earth to bring a special gift. That gift is none other than my Self, a gift that I alone can bring. Assurance in this is the gift of the Spirit of Purification. (Excerpted and adapted from Sacred Anatomy)

The role of the Thymus gland and the immune system in the body temple is huge and complex, to say the least—both physically and spiritually.  When I am as ruthless as my immune system in tagging and eliminating all non-self thoughts and feelings from my mind and heart, those things that are not true to the truth of love, my life is much more simple and peaceful as my awareness of who I really am is kept clear and sure.  I will continue along these lines in my next post.  Until then, 

To your health and healing,

Musical Hormone Chemistry

Our bodies are musical instruments . . . literally.  Oh, we can’t hear the music they play.  That would be weird and fun at the same time.  But the body expresses its music through function, healthy function being harmonious music and dysfunction dissonant noise.  Where there’s illness and noisy dissonance, harmonious sound and music can help bring harmony back to the functions of the body’s ill parts.  

Over the years, working with the endocrine glands in attunement and balancing their energy fields with those of the chakras, I’ve been able to chart their musical pitches.  Initially, I worked only with the seven endocrine glands.  I would “hear” the pitches with my inner ear and “feel” the urge to sound them in my vocal apparatus.  For example, as I would hold a contact over the Pineal gland atop the cranium, I would feel the urge to sound a tone, thereby making the inaudible tone audible. 

That tone, during those early years in the 1970’s, was invariably an F natural pitch.  Interestingly enough, the pitch changed toward the latter part of the 80’s to an F sharp (F#), half a pitch higher.  I attributed that change to a shift to a higher frequency occurring globally as our solar system moves into a higher intensity energy field permeating the Milky Way Galaxy (see my other blog,  The Pineal gland was being renewed as it opened to the vibration of Love.  I noticed this shift in the Pineal pitch particularly strong in individuals who were moving in a spiritual path toward personal transformation.  

 Later on, as I began to include the seven chakras in my attunement work, the musical pitches generally associated with them were not the same as those I had assigned to the endocrine glands.  For example, the pitch B natural was commonly assigned to the Crown Chakra in most of the literature. That puzzled me for quite a few years, until one evening, while pondering this discrepancy in preparation for a workshop I was going to conduct in California at an Attunement Guild Gathering, the resolution popped into my head.  Their pitches are not supposed to be the same.  Rather they form the harmonious duet of a perfect fifth: Do . . . Sol, an interval I’ve always called “the healing fifth” for some reason, a reason I was soon to discover.  

For example, the pitches B and F# make up a perfect fifth. They are in perfect harmony with one another.  “Of course!” I exclaimed. “They are singing along in perfect harmony.”  Well, ideally so, and here’s where my life’s work began to open out before me: balancing these two sacred energy systems to bring them into a state of harmony using attunement with sacred sound.  Here’s when my attunement work began to go deeper and to take on a quality of magic. I’ve been using this healing fifth in my attunement work ever since knowing that harmonizing the endocrine glands with the Chakras brings these two sacred energy systems together in perfect harmony and healing to the body temple.  Heal the energy and you heal the body, a facilitating function of the “healing fifth.”


There’s a link to a website circulating on Face Book where one can find geometrical pictures of cymatic mandalas of the 12 notes in the musical octave. You can view them at Cymascope .com.  It’s an interactive website so go there and have a little fun playing the piano notes and bringing up the mandalas.  Here are the cymatic mandala images you will see: (click on image to enlarge it)

These 12 images are cymatic images produced by the vibrational frequency of each note.  To better understand cymatics, I’ve embeded this short video clip of Evan Grant’s work with cymatics for your enjoyment.


I’m very glad to see that Evan Grant and others are exploring and expanding interest in this fascinating field of cymatics.

Now, to the heart of my work with what I call “Attunement with Sacred Sound.”  It’s really quite simple.  There are seven sacred energy centers in and around the body and there are seven notes in the octave of music, eight with the octave.  I simply assigned one of these notes to each energy center, starting with F# at the top for the Pineal gland, the 7th level.  

7. Now, as I said earlier, F# is the fifth harmonic of the B Major chord (B, D#, F#), D# being the third harmonic.

6. Coming down to the next endocrine center, the Pituitary gland, and the Brow Chakra at the 6th level, and to A natural, the next note below B natural, we have the A Major chord (A, C#, E).

 5. Coming down to the 5th level of the Thyroid gland and the Throat Chakra, again working backwards down the scale, we have the G Major chord (G, B, D).  

4, At the 4th level of the Thymus gland and Heart Chakra, we have the F Major chord (F, A, C).  

3. At the 3rd level of the Pancreas and Solar Plexus, we have the E Major chord (E, G#, B).

2. At the 2nd level of the Adrenal glands, Naval Plexus and Root Chakra, we have the D Major chord (D, F#, A).

1. Finally, at the 1st level of the Gonads and the Sacral Plexus, we have the C Major chord (C, E, G).

Now, the third harmonic—mi in the musical scale of do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do— represents the physical body sandwiched in between and embraced by these two sacred energy systems, and “played” by them, if you will, like strings on a violin or harp.  Well, actually, it’s the incarnate angel who is playing his or her harp, and the music is the expression of life through the human capacity, which is supposed to be heavenly music. Only the instrument gets out of tune and so the music begins to sound off key and sour.   Here’s where attunement with harmonious sound—or attunement alone without sound—comes in useful: to tune our harps to the harmonious music of Love’s sweet strains. 


I use sound in my attunement work to create a carrier wave for the healing current that has its origin in Spirit. I’ve found quartz crystal bowls to be the most natural sound-producing tools to use with energy work.  They produce a sound wave that resonates naturally in the chords of the human voice.  I have a few quartz bowls and also several Tibetan bowls and tuning forks which I use to generate pure sounds.  I also use a couple of music CD’s.  

One particular CD that I find quite useful is Chords Of The Cosmos by Deborah Van Dyke in the Vancouver area (Sound Current Music, 602-222-0060.  Order on the web at  She has recorded 12 five-minute tracks playing “Harmonies of the Zodiac with Crystal Bowls.”  I use eight of these tracks during a 45-minute attunement session. I simply ripped and burned them onto another disc.  

The first track is the Libra track for balancing the body’s flow of energy at the crossover point in the upper cervical spine just below the cranium. It’s the F# Major chord (F# A# C#).  I repeat this track at the end, so there are 9 tracks altogether, seven for the seven sacred energy sites and this one at the beginning of the session for balancing and repeated at the end of the attunement, again for balancing and to assist in lifting the energy upward in the ascending current.  The harmonies of the F# chord tend to ascend toward heaven and before the throne of God in the body temple, the Pineal. 

The seven tracks between these two tracks are in the descending order of the chakras and endocrine glands. They are listed on the CD as “Harmonies of the Zodiac:” 

7. Pisces (B D# F#) for Pineal and Crown, 

6. Capricorn (A C# E) for Pituitary and Brow, 

5. Scorpio (G B D) for Thyroid and Throat, 

4. Virgo (F A C) for Thymus and Heart, 

3. Leo (E G# B) for Pancreas and Solar Plexus, 

2. Gemini (D F# A) for Adrenals, Naval Plexus and Root Chakra

1. Aries (C E G) for Gonads and Sacral Plexus. 

Another CD is The Ultimate OM by Jonathan Goldman (Spirit Music Inc., P.O. Box 2240, Boulder CO 80306). You can order it online at or by telephone (303) 443-8181.  This is an hour-long recording of OM toned to a C Major drone interspersed with high frequency overtone harmonics that provide an excellent musical carrier wave for moving healing energy.  His Divine Name  CD is also an hour-long mantra chant of the Hebrew name of God, Yaweh, toned to a D Major drone with ascending overtone harmonics.  Quite profound.  These last two CD’s are great for meditation. 


When we consider that the endocrine glands produce crystals of hormones that carry information to all the cells in the body temple, it’s easy to understand how music, as well as light, play important roles in the missions of these hormonal “emissaries of light.”  Not only is their chemistry produced by vibrations, these hormonal crystals carry “healing tones” to the  body cells directing them in their highly coordinated community activities.  The score of this music is the living manifestation of love in action.  Each hormone is designed to convey a unique tone and color frequency.  Altogether they “perform” a grand symphony of musical tones, overtones and undertones.  The result ideally is health and vitality for the body temple, and graceful, balanced movement for the angel incarnate.

Where the problem arises in human experience that produces dis-harmony and disease is when the human ego takes the harp out of the hands of the angel and starts playing its own “music,” which is not always heavenly.  The harp soon looses its tuning.  We may seek help in tuning up our harps, but ultimately it’s the music that I play on my own harp that keeps it in tune — or causes it to lose its tone.  As angels, we are innately capable of playing beautiful music on our  harps, and thereby keep them tuned to the sweet music of love.
