All About Mary

PROJECT NO. II – ATTITUDES
Attitude is key to our harmony with the universe.
Attitudes: Worry, fear, anger, grief, pretense (cover-up) are all results of disharmony and “run-down” “individualized” energy. Fear is the “core” of all attitudes.

Mary writes: “Revitalizing through the simple usage of the fingers and thumbs to melt away daily fatigue caused through being unaware, or even being aware, but not knowing how to keep from burdening the body with the stress and strain of daily existing and not “LIVING”. The body is affected by the air, food, actions, thoughts, etc., that make up each moment in the Art of Living. It is comforting to know that “tools” we need to be in harmony with the universe, our fingers and thumbs, are with each one of us at all times. We need never fear that we have forgotten or misplaced our fingers and thumbs. Each finger and each thumb are the simple unlocking keys to harmonizing attitudes.”

(I wish to digress for a moment here. I remember a man who had lost 3 fingers from his right hand in an accident. It is a good time to mention that even though a physical part is gone, the energy of that part remains. We’ve all heard of “phantom limb pain”. When someone loses a leg, for instance, they can still feel pain or itching in the toes that are no longer visible. When I work with an amputee, I use my “jumper-cable” hands as though the toes were still there, and “hold” the invisible energetic toe. So if someone, like the man I know, wanted to accomplish Project No. II – Attitudes, he simply holds the place where the physical finger used to be.)

Thumb ~ Worry (depression, hate, obsession, anxiety, self-protection) is an imbalance in our “individualized” stomach and spleen energy pattern.

a. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right thumb.
b. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right middle finger.
c. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right little finger.

The above 3 simple steps revitalize the energy pattern. They remove tensions which cause the attitude of WORRY.

Index Finger ~ Fear (Timidity, mental confusion, depression, perfectionism, criticism, frustration, desire for life) is an imbalance in our “individualized” bladder and kidney energy pattern.

a. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right thumb.
b. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right index finger.
c. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right little finger.

The above 3 simple steps revitalize the energy pattern. They remove tensions which cause the attitude of FEAR.

Middle Finger ~ Anger (Cowardly, irritable, indecisive, unstable, not alert, emotional) is an imbalance in our “individualized” gall bladder and liver energy pattern.

a. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around right little finger.
b. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around right ring finger.
c. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around right middle finger.

The above 3 simple steps revitalize the energy pattern. They remove tensions which cause the attitude of ANGER.

Ring Finger ~ Grief (Negative, mucus forming, common sense) is an imbalance in our “individualized” lung and large intestine energy pattern.

a. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right thumb.
b. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right index finger.
c. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right middle finger.
d. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right ring finger.

The above 4 simple steps revitalize the energy pattern. They remove tensions which cause the attitude of GRIEF.

Little Finger ~ Pretense (cover-up) (Crying on the inside and laughing on the outside, insecure, nervous, confused, mortality) is an imbalance in our “individualized” heart and small intestine energy pattern.

a. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right little finger.
b. Gently wrap left thumb and fingers around the right ring finger.

The above 2 simple steps revitalize the energy pattern. They remove tensions which cause the attitude of PRETENSE (cover-up).

The above is the sequence for the right side energy pattern.
The sequence for the left side of the body is simply in reverse.

Next time we’ll learn Project No. 3 – General Daily Sequences

Thank you, Mary.
Thank you, David

JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS. – the Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF is not intended to be a substitute for regular medical attention by the recognized medical authorities.

Mary wrote 3 Self-Help Jin Shin Jyutsu Textbooks. It was her passion that people should know how to help themselves. With the permission of Mary’s son, David Burmeister, I will share some basic information from those books; the very same books I use when I am teaching a Self-Help class. I strongly suggest that the reader consider purchasing the three textbooks and implement the recommended flows on a daily basis. You will find Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu Is, Book I at http://www.jsjinc.net.

    Hello,

    I don´t no if I have understand correctly this post.

    This indications is when we use our jumper cables in another person, right?

    If we take the example of index finger, one hand takes the left thumb (my right hand) and the other (my left hand) hand embrace index, middle, ring, little finger one by one of the other hand, except the thumb. Is that right ?

    I usually associate depression with ring finger, because of sadness, but if I see depression with a lack of movement and mental confusion, index is ok.

    Index Finger Fear (Timidity, mental confusion, depression, perfectionism, criticism, frustration, desire for life) is an imbalance in our “individualized” bladder and kidney energy pattern.

    a. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right thumb.
    b. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right middle finger.
    c. Gently wrap the left thumb and fingers around the right little finger.

    Thank for share this Knowledge

      Hello Duarte,
      These flows are for self-help from Mary’s 3 textbooks: Jin Shin Jyutsu Is, Now Know Myself It Is and Now Know Myself It Is Is. These are flows that you do for yourself. It would be nice to give yourself this self-help flow while another does the same self-help flow…it is my belief that “together” energy is very strong. Gassho.
