In today’s post “All About Mary” we learn the Source Of Life Self-Help Flow.
I perform this flow daily before I get out of bed…remembering to step out of bed with left foot first on floor…for proper grounding.
After 8 5-day basic classes, I’ve learned more interesting facts about each and every, teeny-tiny aspect of Jin Shin Jyutsu. For interest, the relationship it has with numerology, astrology, astronomy, quantum physics, medicine, meditation….oh, my, the relationships go on and on and on!
The Main Central Vertical Harmonizing Energy (Universal) Self- Help Flow consists of 7 steps. It follows the line of Chakras – from crown chakra #7 (top center of head) to root chakra #1(at the base of the spine).
In Jin Shin Jyutsu, SEL 1 means Prime Mover, General Practitioner/Leader. In numerology, 1 is known as the primal generator and, like SEL 1, is Masculine and signifies unity (among other things) So, while step 1 is not where SEL 1 is located, it has numerology similarities by simply being number 1.
So, if the first step of the Self-Help flow is #1, and step 2 (between the eyebrows) where SELs 20 are located; 2+0=2. Then
Step 3 (tip of nose) is where the 21s are located; 2+1=3.
Step 4 (sternum) is where the 13s are located; 1+3=4.
Step 5 (base of sternum) is where the 14s are located; 1+4=5.
Step 6 (top of pubic bone) is where 15s are located; 1+5=6.
Step 7 (bring hand to coccyx from top of head, 1); 1+5+1-7.
Every page of every text book is purposely numbered by Mary to be meaningful to our awareness and understanding of this Art.
I don’t know about you, but this awareness sent me scurrying to find out more about the relationship between Jin Shin Jyutsu and numerology. Why did Master Jiro number the flows the way he did? Ah, I see this Art requires a lifetime of study!
