What is happening in the world of Jin Shin Jyutsu

I’m thinking…

…about pleasure

“Then a hermit, who visited the city once a year, came forth and said, Speak to us of Pleasure.
And he answered, saying:
Pleasure is a freedom-song, But it is not freedom. It is the blossoming of your desires, But it is not their fruit. It is a depth calling unto a height, But it is not the deep nor the high. It is the caged taking wing, But it is not space encompassed. Ay, in very truth, pleasure is a freedom-song. And I fain would have you sing it with fullness of heart; yet I would not have your lose your hearts in the singing.

Some of your youth seek pleasure as if it were all, and they are judged and rebuked. I would not judge nor rebuke them. I would have them seek. For they shall find pleasure, but not her alone; Seven are her sisters, and the least of them is more beautiful than pleasure. Have you not heard of the man who was digging in the earth for roots and found a treasure?

And some of your elders remember pleasures with regret like wrongs committed in drunkenness. But regret is the beclouding of the mind and not its chastisement. They should remember their pleasures with gratitude, as they would the harvest of a summer. Yet if it comforts them to regret, let them be comforted.

And there are among you those who are neither young to seek nor old to remember; And in their fear of seeking and remembering they shun all pleasures, lest they neglect the spirit or offend against it. But even in their foregoing is their pleasure. And thus they too find a treasure though they dig for roots with quivering hands. But tell me, who is he that can offend the spirit? Shall the nightingale offend the stillness of the night, or the firefly the stars? And shall your flame or your smoke burden the wind? Think you the spirit is a still pool which you can trouble with a staff?

Oftentimes, in denying yourself pleasure you do but store the desire in the recesses of your being. Who knows but that which seems omitted today, waits for tomorrow? Even your body knows its heritage and its rightful need and will not be deceived. And your body is the harp of your soul, And it is yours to bring forth sweet music from it or confused sounds.

And now you ask in your heart, “How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?” Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower, But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee. For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love, And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.”

~ The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

The Fingers: “Complicatedly Simple or…

…Simply Complicated?”
This is the question Lynne Pflueger addressed in the Number 11, Summer 2001 issue of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter.

I’ve been posting my understanding of the harmonizing of the attitudes through fingers and palm. It seems a good time to review what Lynne shared. Continuing from my previous post:

“Lastly, little finger harmonizes fifth depth. On the organ function level, Stomach Function, Spleen and Liver are all helped as little finger affects the big toe. Little finger, then, as it affects big toe is supporting first depth through Stomach and Spleen Function Energy. Simultaneously, little finger is unburdening third depth as Liver Function flows through the big toe. Harmonizing fifth depth will unburden second  and energize fourth depths.

Five fingers on one hand or only one of the fingers on either hand is sufficient for this entire process. Each of us will be drawn to hold fingers of the left and/or right hand, left helping to clear the past, right helping to change and harmonize lifestyle, each helping the other. We intuitively reach for the hand that needs attention. This is magically and effortlessly simple. None of us need be the doer or the tryer. I can still HEAR Mary in class telling us about a client who apologetically said, “Oh, I don’t use much self-help, I only hold my fingers.”

Thank you, Master Jiro,

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Thank you, Lynne

I’ve been posting my understanding of the harmonizing of the attitudes through fingers and palm. It seems a good time to review what Lynne shared. Continuing from my previous post:

“Moving on to middle finger, third depth, the sixth depth is included through Diaphragm Function Energy. This is our Source of life itself, governor of the pulses and harmonizer of all descending energy, so that we may receive the life force giving us vigor and vitality. Middle finger affects opposite middle toe which helps Stomach Function, unburdening first depth. Fourth depth is also unburdened as third depth fluffiness takes on tone and energy. Third depth will energize and support second and fifth depths, thus relieving mental and emotional stresses. Every depth is represented.

Ring finger, second depth, is next. Ring finger also helps Umbilicus Function Energy, sixth depth, which nurtures, nourishes and guards the physical body. As I hold and the pulse begins to harmonize, fourth depth is supported. As the rocks and rods of second depth begin to melt away, the path clears for fourth depth water element to flow. Fifth depth fire element is sustained and energized by second depth air element. On the organ function level, first depth Stomach Function is unburdened through the second toe. Third depth is unburdened as second depth comes into harmony. Again, all depths are accounted for.”

The Fingers: “Complicatedly Simple or…

This is the question Lynne Pflueger addressed in the Number 11, Summer 2001 issue of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter.

I’ve been posting my understanding of the harmonizing of the attitudes through fingers and palm. It seems a good time to review what Lynne shared:

“Jiro Murai said to Mary almost fifty years ago, “In time you will know the non-secret secret of the power that is in the awareness and understanding of the thumbs and fingers. All disharmonies can be harmonized through them.” It is so simple and easy.

One way to SEE the profoundly simple power of jumper-cabling the fingers is to recognize that the entire Lumbar Circle can be harmonized through the hand. Even one finger at a time is total and complete.

To begin, I simply hold the thumb, either hand, helping first depth. As I hold, the gummy, sluggish pulse begins to move supporting and helping to melt the rocks and rods of second depth. Lung functions flows into the thumb. While I am holding the thumb, opposite little toe is affected, harmonizing Bladder and Kidney, thereby unburdening fourth depth. As the gumminess continues to clear, fifth depth is unburdened because it doesn’t need to try so hard. At the same time third depth is energized. One thumb, five depths.

Next, I hold index finger, harmonizing fourth depth. Even if I am not aware, this will be unburdening second depth because Lung and Large Intestine flow through index finger. Fourth depth water element will wear down the rocks and rods of second depth “stucks”. I always think of the Grand Canyon carved out by the Colorado River. As fourth depth continues to clear, first and third depths are energized and supported. Index finger corresponds to ring toe, which will harmonize Gall Bladder and Diagonal Mediator flows. Fifth depth will be unburdened holding fourth depth index finger. All five depths of Man are helped.”

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Palm)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the palm and its relationship with the rest of my mind and body.

The palm has relationship with the 6th Depth. 6th Depth is the blueprint of my personal self. The light of 7th Depth manifests itself in 6th Depth. 6th Depth is the spark and breath of my life. Here 6th Depth energy flows originate that bring the Cosmic energy in a continual flow for all necessary daily life energy. 6th Depth flows revitalize us when we are sick or exhausted. When our journey is over, we reenter the 6th Depth. The physical body dies, the soul is released. All Safety Energy Locks (0-26) are born in 6th Depth.

While all organs meet in the palm, 6th Depth has relationship with Diaphragm Energy and Umbilicus Energy. Energy ascends up the left palm and over the fingertips. Descending energy rises over the fingertips of the right hand and through the palm. (Da Vinci figure)

The palm corresponds with imbalance and despondency. Physical symptoms may occur in the diaphragm and umbilicus organ functions. In balance, one feels a sense of profound peace.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the palms, or folding the hands gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance. You may also give yourself a “big hug”.

This is a simple overview of the palm. There is much more to learn and understand, and I encourage you, wherever you may live, to find a 5-day basic seminar being taught in your area and register to take the class. You can find the information at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Thank you, Master Murai.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Little Finger)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the little finger and its relationship with the rest of my mind and body.

The little finger has relationship with the 5th Depth. 5th Depth is where the fire of life becomes the fire of my heart. 5th Depth energy harmonizes the spiritual flame of my heart and brings enlightenment and bliss. 5th Depth is where we connect with the light we came from.  5th Depth is connected to the skeletal system which contains the personal 6th Depth genetic blueprint of our cells. Here we can overcome fear, even fear of death. Safety Energy Locks 24-26 are born in 5th Depth.

The attitude for the little finger is try-tos/pretense.

The ring finger side of the little finger is related to Small Intestine Energy. The upper third of the ring finger side of the little finger relates to SEL 15. The middle third of the ring finger side of the little finger relates to SEL 18. The lower third of the ring finger side of the little finger relates to SEL 20. This side of the little finger is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The  lateral (outside) of the little finger is related to Heart Energy. The upper third of this side of the little finger is related to SEL 23; the middle third of this side of the little finger is related to SEL 24. The lateral side of the little finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The little finger corresponds with overdoing it, insecurity, effort, nervousness. Physical symptoms are bone or nerve problems, sore throat.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the little finger gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance.

This is a simple overview of the little finger. There is much more to learn and understand, and I encourage you, wherever you may live, to find a 5-day basic seminar being taught in your area and register to take the class. You can find the information at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Ring Finger)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the ring finger and its relationship with the rest of my mind and body.

The ring finger has relationship with the 2nd Depth. 2nd Depth energy harmonizes relationships within and with others. Deep skin is formed in 2nd Depth, as well as connective tissue and interstitial tissue (space between cells). 2nd Depth, the big Breath Essence of the 6th Depth, becomes our personal breath, which we receive through the lungs. This breath connects all dimensions within us; body, mind and spirit and also connects us to cosmic energy. Safety Energy Locks 5-15 are born in 2nd Depth.

The attitude for the ring finger is sadness/grief.

The middle finger side of the ring finger is related to Large Intestine Energy. The entire middle finger side of the ring finger relates to SEL 14. This side of the middle finger is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The little finger side of the ring finger is related to Lung Energy. The upper fourth of the little finger side of the ring finger is related to SEL 2; the next fourth of the little finger side of the ring finger is related to SEL 4. The next lower fourth of the little finger side of the ring finger is related to SEL 7. The bottom fourth of the little finger side of the ring finger is related to SEL 17. The little finger side of the ring finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The ring finger corresponds with sadness, fear of rejection, grief, negativity. Physical symptoms are digestive, breathing or serious skin problems.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the ring finger gently while exhaling, then inhaling deeply, for even just a few minutes, will bring harmony back into balance.

This is a simple overview of the ring finger. There is much more to learn and understand, and I encourage you, wherever you may live, to find a 5-day basic seminar being taught in your area and register to take the class. You can find the information at http://www.jsjinc.net.
