The physiology of the human body reveals the exquisite intelligence behind its design. The thyroid gland, fashioned by the hand of the creator in the shape of a butterfly, sits on the windpipe just above the thymus gland and below the voice box. The butterfly is a symbol of transformation and transcendence. It evolves from the vulnerable earth bound caterpillar and transforms itself into a butterfly.
It is a fitting symbol for the thyroid’s function which is to transform food into life sustaining energy.
From the spiritual perspective, the thymus gland is considered the sacred heart. It is the place from which intent emanates and fosters conviction, compassion, and forgiveness which are essential for a healthy thyroid function and a healthy self esteem. The voice box produces sound vibration which is an amplification of the soul’s intent to give voice to your inalienable right to speak up and be heard. When shame and unworthiness inhabit your soul, they inhibit your voice and disturb thyroid function. A repressed voice needs to be owned and expressed. There is one qualification, that the voice be spoken with courage, compassion and forgiveness… not shame, anger or retaliation.
There are over 50 million American Women who suffer from thyroid dis-ease. They are at the end of the chrysalis stage of transformation in their evolution and on the verge of ascending into their spiritual power. Imagine 50 million Women embracing their psychic wound and coming together empowered as one voice to prepare the way for future generations of women to speak their hearts and minds with dignity and self respect.
Reclaim your inner voice and you’ll regain your self worth. This is the Women’s way to self- empowerment and freedom.
Your inner voice speaks to you through gut feelings not logic, and you begin to reclaim your inner voice by listening to and trusting your feelings. Acting upon your feelings substantiates self worth, and strengthens your inner resolve. It is through your empathy that you derive passion, strength, self validation and regain your outer voice. Fearlessly make the commitment to speak up, and speak out. Own your self-worth and demand nothing less than equality. That is your birthright.

THYROID MEDITATION REVIEW from Dana Trentini, HypothyroidMom.com
Dana Trentini is a thyroid advocate and the founder of the popular HypothyroidMom.com blog. Dana had an opportunity to try out the Thyroid Meditation, and she shares her thoughts in this post. It starts:
“I recall vividly the day several years ago when I visited my acupuncturist. She brought up a topic that I had never heard before. She explained how from a holistic perspective the throat is associated with communication and that the inability to speak up for oneself can contribute to thyroid disease. I love my acupuncturist and feel totally comfortable with her but I remember that visit sitting in my seat feeling uneasy as if she was suggesting something negative about me that caused my health condition. I dismissed the conversation by saying that it didn’t seem to ring true in my life and our appointment ended.
I’ve thought long and hard about that conversation for years. I realize now that she was not blaming me for my condition. She wasn’t suggesting my health condition was not real. She was suggesting to examine how I speak up for myself as one way to help in my healing. The truth is she was right…”
