What is happening in the world of Jin Shin Jyutsu

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.

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. 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…

…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:

“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.

A reader asks…

Jin Shin Jyutsu is intended to complement, not replace, the advice of your own physician or other healthcare professional.

That said, a reader has asked about the relationship of SELs 17, 18 and 19 to the Mediator Flow.

Hello Duarte,

It is so nice to hear from you again. I love the questions you ask; they encourage me to review my notes, my experience and open my mind for deeper truth.

Let me share my current understanding of SELs 17, 18, 19 and the Mediator flow.

I immediately thought of the curiosity of unlocking SEL 14 ~ we never actually touch SEL 14 when performing this important flow.

Then I think of the different energy patterns.

We have:

Up the back (ascending) and down the front (descending) for Main Central and Supervisors.

And the body “infinity” flow of energy up the back of the right arm, across the fingernails, down the palm and on down the front of the right arm, down the back of the left leg, up the front of the left leg ~  up the front of the left arm, up the palm, over the fingernails, then down the back of the left arm, down the front of the right leg and up the back of the right leg. And that is just part of the eternity flow; if you look at page 9, Text 1, I see 3 infinity flows. Whole body, right arm/left leg and left arm/right leg. I am so glad that Philomena uses the special gloves that a student made for her to help show this flow of energy!

Then the energy flow of the Mediators; connecting left and right Supervisors and Main Central, while all dive deep within the body to energize every cell in all the Depths ~ all the while spiraling clockwise (when in harmony).

While all this energy is flowing, descending energy flows on one side of each finger and ascending energy flows on the other side of each finger.

And if energy gets “stuck”, the flow of the body being jumper-cabled is also opposite to the palm of the person jumper-cabling (which is why the textbook direct us to sit on a certain side for a left flow and another for a right flow…except those flows that are only helped from one side).

If I put my left palm on the chest of a client, with fingers pointing towards the head, and my right palm on the lower torso with fingers pointing toward the toes, it will help ascending energy. But didn’t I just say that energy descends the front and ascends the back? I certainly did. (see page 10, text 1) And that is how we exhale (down the front) and then inhale (up the back).

I know that SELs 17, 18 and 19 are born in 3rd Depth; middle finger, Liver Energy and Gall Bladder Energy.  Yet SEL 17 (on ascending side of ring finger) helps Lung Energy (along with SELs 2, 4 and 7). SEL 18 (on descending side of little finger) helps Small Intestine Energy (along with SELs 15 and 20). SEL 19 (on descending side of thumb) helps Stomach Energy (along with SELs 1 and 21).

When I look at pages 52 and 53 of Text 1, I am told that if the Mediator Flow is not in harmony, it will be the main cause for malfunctions in “body energy circulation patterns”.

To restore harmony, I can provide the flow on page 53: Elimination of Intermingling Diagonal Mediator Universal Harmonizing Energy ~ Fatigue Flow Congestions.

My hands will gently touch SELS 10, 18, 8, 23, 18, 2, 13, 14 and 8. I will not touch SEL 17 in this flow. I have a note that SEL 17 is “soul”.

In other notes I see SEL 16 is the bridge from Supervisor to Mediator/the number of transformation/harmony, 17 is transformational power/spirit, 18 is mind/melody and 19 is perfect balance/rhythm. You can find that on Page 31, Text 1. I have not heard that 17, 18 and 19 live in the Mediator flow, so you might want to ask for clarification from the instructor…who will be more than happy to respond.

So, today, my understanding is one of relationship and unity.

Awareness is the key, or so Wayne Hackett declares.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is all about relationship, or so says Michael Wenninger.

In the end it is all about the breath.

There is a wonderful article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, Number 84, for Spring 2014: The Diagonal Mediator Flow. Contact Scottsdale at www.jsjinc.net to obtain your own copy. It is good to have.

I hope this helps.

Again, thank you for writing.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

PS If you are tired the day following the application of the Mediator Flow, I am uncertain as to why that would be related. Sometimes I interpret serene and calm as tired, when that is not necessarily the case. I suggest you make a note and track responses to JSJ Self-help and Getting to Know (Help) Myself at deeper levels of awareness…what an exciting adventure!

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Middle Finger)

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

The middle finger has relationship with the 3rd Depth. 3rd Depth energy harmonizes and binds the 4 elements, keeping them in order. Mary said that the 3rd Depth is the quintessence, essence energy which supplies the body with energy of the 6th Depth (the Blueprint). The essence (life force) is transported in the blood, invisible but goes everywhere. 3rd Depth is the psychic energy binding the soul to the body, bringing our being into manifestation. It’s the energy for creation, the first in the source and the last to manifest in the body. 3rd Depth lives in both the invisible and visible world at the same time. Safety Energy Locks 16-22 are born in 3rd Depth.

The attitude for the middle finger is anger.

The index finger side of the middle finger is related to Gall Bladder Energy. The upper third of the index finger side of the middle finger relates to SEL 6; the middle third of the of the index finger side of the middle finger relates to SEL 13. 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 ring finger side of the middle finger is related to Liver Energy. The upper third of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 3; the middle third of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 12. The base of the ring finger side of the middle finger is related to SEL 25. The ring finger side of the middle finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The middle finger corresponds with anger (“giving someone the bird”), irritability, indecisiveness. Physical symptoms are eye or vision problems, fatigue, circulation problems. In balance, one increases the capacity for compassion.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the middle 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 middle 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.

Thank you, Master Murai.

Thank you, Mary.

Harmonizing the Attitudes through Fingers & Hand (Index Finger)

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

The index finger has relationship with the 4th Depth. 4th Depth energy builds the muscle layer of the body. 4th Depth connects us with inner wisdom. Only Safety Energy Lock 23 is born in 4th Depth.

The attitude for the index finger is fear.

The thumb side of the index finger is related to Bladder Energy. The upper third of the thumb side of the index finger relates to SEL 5; the middle third of the thumb side of the index finger relates to SEL 22. This side of the index finger is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The middle finger side of the index finger is related to Kidney Energy. The upper third of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 8; the middle third of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 10. The base of the middle finger side of the index finger is related to SEL 11. The middle finger side of the index finger is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The index finger corresponds to fear, mental confusion, frustration. Physical symptoms include digestive problems and muscle problems like backache. In balance, freedom from fear is restored.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the index 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 index 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 (Thumb)

Today I will share my experience and understanding of the thumb and its variety of relationships with the rest of my body.

The thumb has relationship with the 1st Depth. 1st Depth is our “container”, forming our skin surface and is related to our physical growth. Safety Energy Locks 1-4 belong to 1st depth.

The attitude for the thumb is worry.

The lateral (outer) side of the thumb is related to Stomach Energy. Also, the upper third of the lateral thumb relates to SEL 1; the mid-thumb relates to SEL 19 and the base of the thumb relates to SEL 21. This side of the thumb is related to descending energy. Descending energy creates/builds and is related to the exhale, down the front.

The medial (inner) side of the thumb is related to Spleen Energy. The upper half of the thumb is related to SEL 9; the mid-thumb is related to SEL 16. The medial side of the thumb is related to ascending energy. Ascending energy cleans/renews and is related to the inhale, up the back.

The thumb corresponds to worrying, depression, anxiety. Physical symptoms include stomach aches, headaches, skin problems and nervousness. In balance, one feels a sense of security.

If one experiences any such disharmony, simply holding the thumb 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 thumb. 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.
