Jin Shin Jyutsu ~ Teeth ~ 3

We grind our teeth, we shine our teeth, we cap ’em, whiten ’em and flash a toothy grin…
we take a bite outta crime, we put some teeth into our endeavors…
In a more practical way, they are used to bite large pieces of food into manageable size to masticate and they also help us create intelligible speech.

Love teeth.

Got some funny quotes from http://www.GreatQuotes.com:

“They have put the teeth back into it.” — Charles III

“Men in flat caps and collarless shirts wander around with a sprig of hawthorn between their teeth, their hands clamped behind them. All you have to do is say “Ah,” mingling pity, rage and stoicism in one breath, and everyone within earshot will echo you.” — Paul West

“Look, still got all my teeth.” — Scott Graham

“We’re going to try to get his teeth back to what they’d be like if he was in a natural environment.” — Steve Burgess

“This is the only thing out there that has some teeth.” — Steve Groene

“Once the adrenaline kicked in, I kind of forgot about it until I hurt it again. When it hurt, I crunched my teeth together and squeezed all my strength together. I couldn’t stop.” — Trent Beckley

“Brush your teeth with the best toothpaste,
Then rinse your mouth with industrial waste”. — Tom Lehrer

“A country that displays an almost ruthless commitment to efficiency and performance in every aspect of its economy, a country that switched to Japanese cars the moment they were more reliable, and to Chinese T-shirts the moment they were five cents cheaper, has loyally stuck with a health-care system that leaves its citizenry pulling out their teeth with pliers,” — Malcolm Gladwell

“You get inflation, and that’ll prompt a lot of investors to look overseas, even in their 401(k) plans. Those funds can be volatile, certainly, but it’s best to grit your teeth, put a little money in there and not look at it every day.” — Don Cassidy

“It’s nice to have a pet that offers unconditional love, someone who doesn’t talk back. I love cats, but cats take you on their terms. My golden retriever could have a broken leg, and his teeth could be falling out, but if I walk in the door, he’ll wag his tail until it hurts.” — Bob Vetere

“extremely compelling evidence that the time it took Neanderthals to grow their teeth is broadly similar to that for modern human populations.” — Gary Schwartz

Well, I’m supposed to be writing about teeth 4, 5, 12, 13, 18, 19, 30 and 31.

These teeth have relationships with lung, large intestine, nose, ethmodial sinus, bronchi, the thymus and pituitary gland, the foot, the (very special) big toe, shoulder, elbow, hand, veins and arteries…whew! There is even relationship with cervical vertebrae C1, C2, C4, C5, C7 AND thoracic vertebrae T4 and T5 AND with lumbar vertebrae L4 and L5.

I don’t know about you, but when I have a sinus infection, my teeth ache and I want to rub them…specifically teeth 4, 5, 12 or 13 depending on which sinus is infected.

The helpful finger is the ring finger, which is related to the attitude sadness/grief and 2nd depth.

Now get up from the computer, walk to the bathroom mirror and give yourself a BIG smile…then thank your teeth for who they are and what they do. (but only if you want to)

All About Mary

Mary loved numbers and math. Even the pages of her textbooks are intentionally numbered the way they are.

Pythagoras was one of her favorite “3-P’s” (along with Plato and Paracelsus). I found much about Pythagoras on the internet and suggest you check it out yourself…I am very fond of Wikipedia…but the following information comes from the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. (I can spell e-n-c-y-c-l-o-p-e-d-i-a because of Jiminy Cricket)

I particularly like it because it teases me to discover more and to think, think, think. That’s a good thing!

Pythagoras (c.570—c.495 BCE)
The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Pythagoras must have been one of the world’s greatest persons, but he wrote nothing, and it is hard to say how much of the doctrine we know as Pythagorean is due to the founder of the society and how much is later development. It is also hard to say how much of what we are told about the life of Pythagoras is trustworthy; for a mass of legend gathered around his name at an early date. Sometimes he is represented as a man of science, and sometimes as a preacher of mystic doctrines, and we might be tempted to regard one or other of those characters as alone historical. The truth is that there is no need to reject either of the traditional views. The union of mathematical genius and mysticism is common enough. Originally from Samos, Pythagoras founded at Kroton (in southern Italy) a society which was at once a religious community and a scientific school. Such a body was bound to excite jealousy and mistrust, and we hear of many struggles. Pythagoras himself had to flee from Kroton to Metapontion, where he died.
It is stated that he was a disciple of Anaximander, his astronomy was the natural development of Anaximander’s. Also, the way in which the Pythagorean geometry developed also bears witness to its descent from that of Miletos. The great problem at this date was the duplication of the square, a problem which gave rise to the theorem of the square on the hypotenuse, commonly known still as the Pythagorean proposition (Euclid, I. 47). If we were right in assuming that Thales worked with the old 3:4:5 triangle, the connection is obvious.
Pythagoras argued that there are three kinds of men, just as there are three classes of strangers who come to the Olympic Games. The lowest consists of those who come to buy and sell, and next above them are those who come to compete. Best of all are those who simply come to look on. Men may be classified accordingly as lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gain. That seems to imply the doctrine of the tripartite soul, which is also attributed to the early Pythagoreans on good authority, though it is common now to ascribe it to Plato. There are, however, clear references to it before his time, and it agrees much better with the general outlook of the Pythagoreans. The comparison of human life to a gathering like the Games was often repeated in later days. Pythagoras also taught the doctrine of Rebirth or transmigration, which we may have learned from the contemporary Orphics. Xenophanes made fun of him for pretending to recognize the voice of a departed friend in the howls of a beaten dog. Empedocles seems to be referring to him when he speaks of a man who could remember what happened ten or twenty generations before. It was on this that the doctrine of Recollection, which plays so great a part in Plato, was based. The things we perceive with the senses, Plato argues, remind us of things we knew when the soul was out of the body and could perceive reality directly.
There is more difficulty about the cosmology of Pythagoras. Hardly any school ever professed such reverence for its founder’s authority as the Pythagoreans. ‘The Master said so’ was their watchword. On the other hand, few schools have shown so much capacity for progress and for adapting themselves to new conditions. Pythagoras started from the cosmical system of Anaximenes. Aristotle tells us that the Pythagoreans represented the world as inhaling ‘air’ form the boundless mass outside it, and this ‘air’ is identified with ‘the unlimited’. When, however, we come to the process by which things are developed out of the ‘unlimited’, we observe a great change. We hear nothing more of ‘separating out’ or even of rarefaction and condensation. Instead of that we have the theory that what gives form to the Unlimited is the Limit. That is the great contribution of Pythagoras to philosophy, and we must try to understand it. Now the function of the Limit is usually illustrated from the arts of music and medicine, and we have seen how important these two arts were for Pythagoreans, so it is natural to infer that the key to its meaning is to be found in them.
It may be taken as certain that Pythagoras himself discovered the numerical ratios which determine the concordant intervals of the musical scale. Similar to musical intervals, in medicine there are opposites, such as the hot and the cold, the wet and the dry, and it is the business of the physician to produce a proper ‘blend’ of these in the human body. In a well-known passage of Plato’s Phaedo (86 b) we are told by Simmias that the Pythagoreans held the body to be strung like an instrument to a certain pitch, hot and cold, wet and dry taking the place of high and low in music. Musical tuning and health are alike means arising from the application of Limit to the Unlimited. It was natural for Pythagoras to look for something of the same kind in the world at large. Briefly stated, the doctrine of Pythagoras was that all things are numbers. In certain fundamental cases, the early Pythagoreans represented numbers and explained their properties by means of dots arranged in certain ‘figures’ or patterns.

Jin Shin Jyutsu ~ Teeth ~ 2

Well, here I am, late again.

And still talking about teeth…now that I’ve begun with the molars it only seems right to address the other 28!

Today we’ll see about 8 teeth: numbers 2, 3, 14, 15, 20, 21, 28 and 29. (Note that we have jumped over 18, 19, 30 and 31 which we’ll get to tomorrow, hopefully before midnight!)

They begin from the upper right, then move to the upper left, then lower left and finally lower right.

They all have relationship with Mammary Glands, Oropharynx, Maxillary Sinus, Larynx, Pancreas, Spleen and Stomach. That means there is relationship with thumb and 1st depth and the attitude of worry.

Teeth 2, 3, 14 and 15 are related to thyroid and parathyroid glands, the tongue, jaw, anterior hip, anterior knee, medial ankle, pancreas and esophagus while teeth 20, 21, 28 and 29 are related to the gonads, the tongue, jaw, anterior hip, anterior knee, medial ankle, spleen, esophagus and lymph vessels.

The upper teeth have a 3-root system while the lower teeth have a 1-root system.

What does it all mean?

Well, if those teeth hurt, I can hold my right or left thumb to ease the pain, help healing and remove the attitude of worry about going to the dentist!

And if the dentist says the teeth are just fine, perhaps it is an early warning system that there may be a “stuck” in my knee, hip, ankle, etc. OR a “stuck” in those places may indicate that the related tooth may need some flossing!

Dare we consider the Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot addresses these relationships at least in part? Check Amazon.com to find this book…it is a really eye-opening read!

As my dear friend is wont to say: Love and light!

All About Mary

Mary drew upon the wisdom of Paracelsus:

Health is not freedom from desire. Health is freedom from cause.

It is not the purpose of philosophy to intellectualize life, but rather to create an ever practical guide to the decisions of daily life.

The true physician studies the invisible man more earnestly than the visible.

Paracelsus, born Philippus Arueolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, was born in 1493 and died in 1541. He was a German-Swiss Renassaince physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer and general occultist. He founded the discipline of toxicology. He is also known as a revolutionary for insisting upon using observations of nature, rather than looking to ancient texts, in open and radical defiance of medical practice of his day. He is also credited for give zinc its name, calling it zincum, and for the terms “gas”, “chemistry” and “alcohol”. Modern psychology often also credits him for being the first to note that some diseases are rooted in psychological illness.

Paracelsus was born and raised in the village of Einsiedeln in Switzerland. His father was a German chemist and physician. His mother was Swiss and presumably died in his childhood. In 1502 the family moved to Villach, Carinthia where his father worked as a physician. He received a profound humanistic and theological education by his father, local clerics and the convent school of St. Paul’s Abbey in the Lavanttal. At the age of 16 he started studying medicine at the University of Basel, later moving to Vienna. He gained his doctorate from the University of Ferrara in 1515 or 1516.

He held a natural affinity with the Hermetic, Neoplatonic and Pythagorean philosophies central to the Renaissance and rejected the magic theories of Agrippa and Flamel. Astrology was a very important part of his medicine and he was a practicing astrologer. He provided astrological talismans for curing disease as well as creating talismans for each sign of the Zodiac. He invented an alphabet called the Alphabet of the Magi, for engraving angelic names upon talismans.

He pioneered the use of chemicals and minerals in medicine. H used experimentation in learning about the human body. He was also responsible for the creation of laudanum, an opium tincture very common until the 19th century.

He gained a reputation for being arrogant and garnered the anger of other physicians in Europe. He was forced from the city after suing to collect an unpaid physician’s fee and the city council of Numberg prohibited the printing of his works.

He wandered Europe, Africa and Asia Minor in the pursuit of hidden knowledge. He regained fame in 1536 when his Die grosse Wundartznei (The Great Surgery Book) was published.

His contributions to medicine can be seen in the context of the birth of Lutheranism. He was a contemporary of Copernicus, Da Vinci and martin Luther. During his life he was compared with Luther in part because his ideas were different from the mainstream and because of openly defiant acts against existing authorities in medicine, such as his public burning of ancient books.

He died at the age of 47 of natural causes and was buried according to his wishes in the cemetery at the church of St. Sebastian in Salzburg.

Is motto was “Let no man belong to another who can belong to himself.”
He believed in the Greek concept of the four elements. But also introduce the idea that, on another level, the cosmos is fashioned from three spiritual substances: the tria prima of mercury, sulfur and salt. He viewed them not as merely simple substances but rather broad principles that gave every object both its inner essence and outward form. For example, when a piece of wood is burnt, the products reflect its constitution: smoke reflects mercury, flame reflects sulfur and ash reflects salt.

The tri prima also defined the human identity. Sulfur embodied the soul (emotions and desires); salt represented the body; mercury epitomized the spirit (imagination, moral judgment and higher mental faculties. By understanding the chemical nature of the tria prima, a physician could discover the means of curing disease.

His hermetical views were that sickness and health in the body relied on the harmony of man (microcosm) and Nature (macrocosm). ). He took an approach different from those before him, using this analogy not in the manner of soul-purification but in the manner that humans must have certain balances of minerals in their bodies, and that certain illnesses of the body had chemical remedies that could cure them. (Debus & Multhauf, p. 6-12)
As a result of this hermetical idea of harmony, the universe’s macrocosm was represented in every person as a microcosm. According to the insights at the time, there were Seven planets in the sky, Seven metals on Earth and Seven centers (or major organs) in Man — seven was a special number. Everything was heavenly and closely interrelated (see table below).

Harmony of Elements and Organs Table

Diseases were caused by poisons brought here from the stars. But ‘poisons’ were not necessarily something negative, in part because related substances interacted, in part because only the dose determined if a substance was poisonous or not. Evil could expel evil. Therefore, poisons could have beneficial medical effects. Because everything in the universe was interrelated, beneficial medical substances could be found in herbs, minerals and various chemical combinations thereof. Paracelsus viewed the universe as one coherent organism pervaded by a uniting lifegiving spirit, and this in its entirety, Man included, was ‘God’. His views put him at odds with the Church, for which there necessarily had to be a difference between the Creator and the created.

He summarized his own views:
“Many have said of Alchemy, that it is for the making of gold and silver. For me such is not the aim, but to consider only what virtue and power may lie in medicines.”(Edwardes, p. 47)

Paracelsus, sometimes called the father of toxicology, wrote:
“All things are poison, and nothing is without poison; only the dose permits something not to be poisonous.”

This information was taken from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There is more, much more. I hope you will want to see for yourself.

I’m thinking…

…that this post is REALLY late for me. I’m a morning person.

I didn’t have time to post this morning because I was called away at 6:30 a.m. because a client was having difficulty breathing. My client is a favorite. He is a standard poodle. He is wonderful.
We were able to make him more comfortable but it was time for the help of Western Medicine. He is now safely in the care of his Vet. I continue to talk to him (from my heart and third eye) to tell him how very loved he is.

And to remind his owner how very loved she is. And she is prepared to help him with Jin Shin Jyutsu flows when he comes home…I just love SEL 3, 10 and 13! Well, I love all 26 (on each side), but today I love them best.

Jin Shin Jyutsu SUPPORTS Western Medicine. It makes the medication more efficient if it is needed. It helps the body detox the parts of the medicine that aren’t so very wonderful, but necessary at this time. Jin Shin Jyutsu speeds healing…big time. East/West working together to help this miracle we call our body.

“Course if it was 250 years ago, before medicine and sterile surgery – which was practiced as early as 4,000 BCE (dental work in 7,0000 BCE!) without clean hands/implements and antibiotics, it was all we had and so it worked alone. Flowers/herbs were there to assist as well. It took a little longer but the body WANTS to heal itself, to be healthy and whole. And leave us not forget the relationship between mind/body/spirit! Might I say holographic relationship? Sure. Why not?

Make sure to spend quality time with your loved ones tonight…animal, vegetable and mineral!

Jin Shin Jyutsu ~ Teeth

Putting aside the Safety Energy Locks experiences from the Main Central JSJ Newsletter for a bit,
I was happily surprised to find out that Jin Shin Jyutsu can help with our teeth!

Since there are relationships between fingers/toes/body organs/quantum physics/attitudes/astronomy/energy depths/numerology/et cetera, et cetera (as the King said) why would I be surprised to learn there are relationships between each of our 32 (present or missing) teeth as well?

I dunno. But I was.

My now-removed-molars (because my mouth was too SMALL?) once had the following relationships.

Molars number 1, upper right, and 32, lower right, as well as upper left 16 and lower left 17 all have relationship with my heart, small intestine – therefore 5th Depth – duodenum, shoulder and elbow. Hmmm. I’ve experienced Meckel’s Diverticulitis with surgical removal of gangrenous intestine, burst bursa on my right elbow and bone chips from the head of my right humerus (not too funny) along with rotator cuff tear all with surgical correction. I also have generational 5th depth issues manifested by birth defects on both little fingers. Hmmm.

All 4 molars were removed because they were “impacted” before the age of 16. I wonder. I do know that energetically they are still there, just not manifested. As when we work with an amputee who has pain in a missing limb. The body/blueprint remembers and if there is no great toe to hold (SEL 7), I will hold where it ought to be and the client gets immediate relief…even if their eyes are closed.

Now, what the heck does that mean?

As Wayne Hackett advised me, “Just hold your little finger.”

I can do that.

My body is AMAZING.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is AMAZING.

All About Mary

Mary often referred to the words of Plato.

Plato
(427-347 BCE)

The son of wealthy and influential Athenian parents, Plato began his philosophical career as a student of Socrates. When the master died, Plato traveled to Egypt and Italy, studied with students of Pythagoras, and spent several years advising the ruling family of Syracuse. Eventually, he returned to Athens and established his own school of philosophy at the Academy. For students enrolled there, Plato tried both to pass on the heritage of a Socratic style of thinking and to guide their progress through mathematical learning to the achievement of abstract philosophical truth. The written dialogues on which his enduring reputation rests also serve both of these aims.

The masterpiece among the middle dialogues is Plato’s Republic. It begins with a Socratic conversation about the nature of justice but proceeds directly to an extended discussion of the virtues of justice, wisdom, courage and moderation as they appear both in individual human beings and in society as a whole. This plan for the ideal society or person requires detailed accounts of human knowledge and of the kind of educational program by which it may be achieved by men and women alike, captured in a powerful image of the possibilities for human life in the allegory of the cave. The dialogue concludes with a review of various forms of government, an explicit description of the ideal state, in which only philosophers are fit to rule, and an attempt to show that justice is better than injustice. Among the other dialogues of this period are Plato’s treatments of human emotion in general and of love in particular in the Phaedrus and Symposium.

(from http://www.philosophypages.com)

Isn’t it just like Mary to ponder virtue, justice, wisdom, love?

Plato said things like:

Wisdom is thinking with God and Nature.

Collecting information is a false security.

Self-conquest is the greatest of all victories.

Growth cannot be hurried. Each in his own time.

Learning is simply remembering.

Plato talks about love as being like a divine madness, a natural emotional imbalance.

The International Standard Version (©2012) of the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:13:

Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Love to you!
