From issue Number 27, Winter 1999/2000…
Part 1 was so wonderful to read~gaining an awareness that our body wants to heal itself and we can help it~followed by a happy ending.
Humans can be short-sighted. We will spend centuries poisoning the air we breathe, the water we drink and the soil in which we grow our food. We leave it to future generations to fix the problem. We destroy other species utterly (plants and animals, birds, fish, even lowly but necessary insects), annihilate other humans to take what they have…which is pretty much more of what we have already destroyed with pollution.
We need to learn from Pat’s sad story:
A Practitioner’s Account (Part 2 of 2)
by Jean Carabelos
She did not really make much of a lifestyle change, and her self-help and Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions with me were dropped (or greatly reduced), but she continued to feel very well into the early months of 1997. Then, later, when she was having great difficulty breathing and was put on full-time oxygen, it was detected that she had developed a malignant tumor in the lungs. She had been a heavy smoker for 30 years and was never able to quit the habit, which was blamed for her condition by her doctors. There were many circumstances in her life which may have contributed to her conditions. Working was again not possible, and she had no choice but to quit smoking.
We began sessions more regularly again. She always told me how much more functional she was because of Jin Shin Jyutsu. She knew and appreciated how valuable it was to her daily life. We continued this pattern from January 1998 until her passing in August of 1998 at the age of 50.
As this disease returned, it was with such depth and force that it appeared nothing was going to turn her around. We also allowed for a spirit that was simply tired and wanted to leave. With this knowledge we could only ease her symptoms and keep her more comfortable. And this we did with our blessed Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Several times she told me that even if it didn’t save her life the second time, I was never to think we had not been successful. She knew the power of the work and never doubted its ability to help her. Her Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions were the highlight of her day. At the end, we held the appropriate Safety Energy Locks (4’s, 7’s, 14’s) to assist the soul in its transition, and I believe she was spiritually ready when the time came.
This is an account of a Jin Shin Jyutsu experience. As a practitioner it is important to me that those involved in the practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu ‘get’ the deepest significance of this timeless Art. Blessings upon our lovely Mary Burmeister for the foresight, dedication and love for humanity that moved her to bring this beautiful Art to America and share it with us. I am blessed to have been there for this friend and to have let her teach me the depths to which we can go to help ourselves or each other when we open up to the possibilities that Jin Shin Jyutsu offers us.
Blessings to ALL,
Jean Carabelos, Denver, Colorado
