I’m thinking…

…about what Lynne Pflueger shared in today’s Jin Shin Jyutsu post.

My mind is open to things I refused to listen to 10 years ago. Things like religions outside of my own (at the time), astrology, numerology, NDR stories, holographs, holographic travel! What next? Quantum mechanics? The discovery of the Higgs’ boson that was merely theory since 1969? Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Turns out that billions of people of all nationalities from all over the planet for thousands of years (plus!) can’t be wrong.

So, while I don’t understand much of what Lynne shared, I know it is so, because I have experienced the immediate and long-term effects of daily Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help…plus I AM typing on a computer and the words I type can be seen all over the world (if anyone cares to look) and will last eternally in the ether (I wonder how that might affect 8th Depth energy?)

Well, I’ll keep studying and practicing and one day the awareness will truly take hold and I will have true knowledge. If I read page 250 of The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot, I will find that the purpose of life (simply put) is to love and gain all knowledge in order to reach out and help others.


Lynne Pflueger on SEL 18

Today we begin our review of Safety Energy Lock 18 from issue Number 21, Summer 1998. This is what Lynne Pflueger shared about her experience of SEL 18:

I have been wondering what it is about numbers in their teen’s that set them apart form the others. After a numerological investigation, I came upon something very interesting. Teen translates to numbers as 20, 5, 5, 14 or 2555. The word teen then brings the energy of transformation through three five’s, supported by two which is wisdom or the life force for all creatures. It is fun to contemplate this in the context of our developmental teenage years and adolescence. My imagination then leads me to say that Eighteen is magical transformative power supported by wisdom and life force.

Eighteen is body consciousness, “…the aggregate intelligence of the cells of the body.” This passage is from Dr. Paul Foster Case in his classic book, The Tarot: a Key to the Wisdom of the Ages. He goes on to say in his chapter on Key 18: The Moon, that “Nature gives us the wild body. Art must perfect it. Yet a flesh and blood body is the necessary vehicle for mastery as expressed here on the physical plane, and though it can not inherit or transmit the powers of adeptship, it can become a vehicle for those powers when it is rightly organized by adaptive methods…” Jin Shin Jyutsu being the organizer and harmonizer.

Eighteen also governs functions affecting human personality. I have day-dreamed on why this would be so. My thoughts went to our Second Depth, the air element. Air is the harmonizer of the intellect. Mary says, “If the ether is out of balance, a person’s thoughts are confused, abnormal.” The Lung flow which brings divine breath to the body, goes through 18. The first two steps of the Breathing flow are the high 19 held with same side 18, helping Lung. As the breath flows into rhythm, the thoughts begin to harmonize. Eighteen is also along the pathway of the Diagonal Mediator. Mediator is the harmonizer of all attitudes, thereby unburdening the body and clearing the mind. Eighteen then, will harmonize all 27,000 billion cells and bring our thoughts into balance through the breath and the rhythm and motion of the Mediator. My thoughts also drift to our Sixth Depth, the Big Breath of life. Here we are lifted above the five attitudes into a serenity impervious to life’s circumstances. Both Eighteen and Sixth Depth are ruled by the Moon which establishes personality, feelings, and organizes body cells.

Eighteen is also the harmonizer of sleep. Sleep is the provider of physiological repair. If you are having difficulty staying awake during the day, jumper cable 18. Or if you are not falling asleep at night, jumper cable 18.

If this were not enough, turn to page 56 in Text 2. I am always so impressed with Thumb Function Energy. How simple it is to hold 18 with same side shoulder to harmonize the myriad of projects listed at the bottom of the page. Today it is raining again. In Marin County, California, we are now over a total of 85 inches of rain for the season. Sometime today I will sit quietly listening to the water element, our purifier, holding Eighteen knowing I am being magically transformed on a cellular and personality level.

Thank you, Lynne.

Well, this article is a little overwhelming to me and it is clear I have much yet to learn. I will write more in “I’m thinking….” Don’t forget to look at the “Safety Energy Locks” category to identify the location of 18, 19, etc.

I’m thinking…

…about issue Number 20, Spring 1998 of The Main Central from which we have extracted information from three teachers concerning their experience of Safety Energy Lock 17.

I strongly recommend that students of Jin Shin Jyutsu obtain a copy of this particular newsletter from because there is a letter from Haruki Kato that I consider very important. There is also an article “Attitude is Everything” and another entitled “What a Difference an Hour Can Make”; both worthwhile reads.

I’m also thinking about the Depth Qualities of SEL 17. We know from the Jin Shin Jyutsu post today that it is 3rd Depth along with SEL 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22. It is middle finger with an attitude of anger. (On another level, 17 is the lateral side of the ring finger which is 2nd Depth and the attitude is sadness or grief. So we need always remember that we have many relationships/understandings of the energy in our container [body] which is a constantly spiraling movement flowing in different patterns in our being bringing new and regenerated health and harmony from our own personal 6th Depth “blueprint”.)

The Depth Quality of 17 includes the element wood, the function blood, the stress of reading, the project is eyes and the organs in this level are Liver and Gall Bladder. 17 has relationship with cervical vertebra 2, the astrological sign is Aquarius, the planet is Jupiter, the number is 8 and the color is green. The musical tone is C, the day of the week is Thursday, the season is Spring, the direction is East, the metal is tin, the mineral is sapphire, the taste is sour, the smell is rancid and the “quickie” is 14.

You can refresh your memory of where the SELs are located on the body by opening the “Safety Energy Locks” category.

Let’s hold our 14’s for fun!

All About Mary

…taken from The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter Number 20, Spring 1998:

“A tense will, set to accomplish a certain end, will keep the whole system to that end, thereby obstructing the flow.”
-Mary Burmeister

Thank you, Mary. Today I shall try to be open-minded and intuitive.

Waltraud Riegger-Krause on SEL 17

Waltraud Riegger-Krause shares from the Spring 1998 issue, Number 20:

Safety Energy Lock 17, together with 18 and 19, is manifested on the Diagonal Mediator flow. These 3 energy locks represent spirit, mind and body. 17 is correlated with spirit. Here, a quote from Lao-tzu comes to my mind:

“Mind is the master of form, Spirit is the jewel of the mind.”

This means to me that every thought we think is imbued with spirit. In other words, if we bring the thought to our heart, the home of spirit, the outcome, the action will be in harmony. The DIAGONAL (Mediator) UNIVERSAL HARMONIZING ENERGY is the activating principle, and the 3rd Depth has the same function on another level. The Mediator brings the Trinity into action, into movement, and the 3rd Depth brings the ingredients of the 6th Depth into manifestation in the Order of Creation. Mary sometimes said 3rd Depth is similar to Mediator. Both have the color green. 16 is the first Safety Energy Lock being manifested in the 3rd Depth and means the basis of human activity. So 3rd Depth is one universal force that starts the action of manifestation. 16 is the bridge to this action, and then we go on with 17, the spiritual aspect of this action. Spirit is there first. So as we hold our 17 on the hand, we can harmonize the heart and all heart related projects.

I’ve used 17 together with 18 on people who are close to collapsing. Mary had shown me in class a way of holding 17 on the inside of the hand with one hand, together with 18 on the inside of the thumb with the other hand. After a few minutes they stopped sweating and shaking and went back into harmony. 17 helps all shaking, helps the nerves and supports the spleen function.

Being spirit, 17 has to do with reproduction. We can help all reproduction function projects. It helps to attract the spark to come in if someone wants to get pregnant. 17 brings Intuition. It stops the “trying to”, and brings one into the flow.

I’m thinking…

…about the Tao.

Endlessly creating
Endlessly pulsating
The Spirit of the Valley never dies
She is called the Hidden Creator

Although She becomes the whole universe Her immaculate purity is never lost
Although She assumes countless forms Her true identity remains intact
Whatever we see or don’t see
Whatever exists or doesn’t exist
Is nothing but the creation of this Supreme Power

Tao is limitless, unborn, eternal – It can only be reached through the Hidden Creator
She is the very face of the Absolute
The gate to the source of all things eternal

Listen to Her voice
Hear it echo through creation
Without fail, She reveals Her presence
Without fail, She brings us to our own perfection
