All About Mary

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 all three books at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Today we’ll look at page 11 of Introducing JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS. (Continued) KNOW MYSELF IT IS BOOK II.

4.  “QUICKIE” Self Help recharge (jumper cable).

1.  Jumper cable (hold) the center of the palm of the right hand with the left thumb or left finger(s); then jumper cable (hold) the center of the palm of the left hand with the right thumb or right finger(s)

2.  While applying the “jumper cable” as described above:

a.  Be the dropping of your shoulders.

b.  Bow your head to a comfortable position (where you do not feel the weight of your head).

c.  Be the SMILE.

d.  Exhale (lovingly “give” out) all of the “dirt, dust and greasy grime” from head to toes.

e.  Receive gratefully (inhale) the Cosmic Energy from toes to head.

f.  Start counting the exhalings from one to thirty-six.

g. Now we are in the “BREATH” itself. Being in the “Breath only” is heaven on earth, where there is “no-thing”. This is the REALITY – PHYSIO-PHILOSOPHY (Nature – the Effortless Reality) ~ KNOW MYSELF IT IS.

Next time we’ll continue our review the “QUICKIE” Self Help recharge (jumper cable) from page 12.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David

I’m thinking…

…about how fortunate, blessed I am.

I just finished my first 5-Day Basic Class with Ian Harris. As an instructor, he has certainly achieved his goal of teaching me to think, study, become aware. He is light-hearted and very funny but I think we need to teach him the “Sopranos” way of saying, “Forget about it” (that New York, Brooklyn, Bronx style of speech that movie mobsters use).

This was my 9th 5-Day Basic Class. Each instructor teaches the very same material, but from their own personal insight, experience and perspective.

Anita Willoughby was my first and seventh instructor. She is, to me, vibration: movement and music.

Philomena Dooley was my second and fifth instructor. She, to me, knows everything and runs a tight ship. She is faithful to everything Mary taught her. No pillows, no talking during hands on…I remember I had been in an accident, falling on concrete and slamming my head on a piece of metal as I fell. Ouchy! I had two herniated cervical discs and was in the middle of conservative therapy and was using a pillow to support my neck on the table. Philomena went from table to table making sure the students were okay with the selected flow and she approached the head of the table where I lay and stood over me. Looking down, she softly said, “have you injured your neck?” I was totally amazed. How could she know? I said, “why, yes, I have fallen and herniated two cervical discs!” She just looked at me and turned to the room and announced we should never use pillows unless there is an injury. Pillows were flying from tables (except mine) as she walked away, saying nothing more. Only after did I realize she intended a sarcastic remark that back-fired! I love Philomena. I’m “just this side of OCD” and keep a strict adherence to exactly what Mary wrote and said…just like Philomena.

I never had the privilege of being in Mary’s physical presence, but she has given me a tiny piece of her heart and I feel her energetic, spiritual presence whenever I give myself self-help or work with a client. She continues to be my inspiration. However, I understand from some of the stories Instructors tell, that Mary’s beautiful, smiling face with relaxed shoulders, full of joy, could be, ahem, abrupt. Don’t you simply love JSJ?

Michael Wenninger, to me, as an instructor, epitomizes Jin Shin Jyutsu in his Being. He exudes peace, serenity, humility and unconditional love.

Wayne Hackett knows everything – plus! He opened my mind to the relationships of JSJ with astrology, astronomy, numerology. At one of the hands-on sessions, he went from table to table listening to pulses of the student then receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu. I was on the table, resting my hands on my 14s and he came up to the table, listened to my pulses, gently spread the fingers of my hands and said “You have 5th Depth issues. How long have your little fingers been crooked?” I replied, “Since I was in utero.” He responded, “The fifth depth issues are generational.”  and moved on to the next table. Well, I stayed up most of the night going over my notes and literature trying to determine what could be done about this project. I found nothing. I needed to create a plan, a flow to end this generational issue! Surely there must be a book! In the morning, Wayne and I happened to be alone in the auditorium just before class and I approached him and gave him this long story as presented here to you, dear readers, and I said to him, “What shall I do?” He slowly took a couple of steps closer to me (he was on stage and I was below, by the seats) and smiled a little smile as he looked down at me and said: “Hold your little fingers” and then he turned back to preparing his presentation! (I told you I was just this side of OCD!) Jin Shin Jyutsu is simple. It is up the back and down the front. It is the smile. It is the dropping of the shoulders. It is the breath. Well, I don’t know…do you think I shall ever learn? Smile.

Sara Harper, who taught me the Living the Art so that I could teach Self-Help, has an unbelievable story of how JSJ saved her very life; yet she is sweet, and childlike and resembles a flower constantly opening and unfurling…just my opinion, you understand.

And then there is Jed Schwartz who is so experienced and New York City but often teaches classes in Woodstock. He is left and right and yin and yang, and up the back and down the front. (NYC-Woodstock)

Oh, yes and Cynthia Broshi and Susan Schwartz (Jed’s sister) – you just feel like you want to gently give them the JSJ hug!(9/26, 2, heart-to heart).

And, AND I have been honored to meet Sadaki Kato and am registered for his class In Morristown, NJ in November, 2014.

I love to:

“NOW KNOW (help) MYSELF, BE IT IS, IS. BE Infinite Truth, Infinite Self, Impersonal Self.” – Mary Burmeister

So, to all my dear readers, practice your self-help daily and be aware. Then you will be ready to help all others!

PS There are new materials available from Scottsdale (www.jsjinc.net):

“Zero to Twenty-Six excerpts from THE MAIN CENTRAL”, Waltraud Riegger-Krause’s book and card set: “Jin Shin Jyutsu Practicing the Art of Self-Healing” and a small laminated chart of animal SELs. I bought them all! I highly recommend them.

Okay! Everybody give yourselves the “Big Hug” and breathe…..

 

I’m thinking…

…about the Tao

Something formless, complete in itself

There before Heaven and Earth

Tranquil, vast, standing alone, unchanging

It provides for all things yet cannot be exhausted

It is the mother of the universe

I do not know its name

so I call it “Tao”

Forced to name it further

I call it

“The greatness of all things”

“The end of all endings”

I call it

“That which is beyond the beyond”

“That to which all things return”

From Tao comes all greatness –

It makes Heaven great

It makes Earth great

It makes man great

Mankind depends on the laws of Earth

Earth depends on the laws of Heaven

Heaven depends on the laws of Tao

But Tao depends on itself alone

Supremely free, self-so, it rests in its own nature
…Verse 25 from “Tao Te Ching”

A fellow student asks

A new student is attending Ian Harris’ 5-day Basic Class with me in Morristown, NJ. She wrote: I briefly spoke with you after you stated a condition can be corrected with 3-6 sessions with an experienced practitian. You also said it’s important that the client (me) follow the recommended self help.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is intended to complement, not replace, the advice of your own physician or other healthcare professional.

It was an important question and here is what I replied to her: Mary is the one who said it should only take 3-6 sessions if the client does daily self-help…I’m just quoting her.

JSJ is not about making money. JSJ is about the Art of God helping people through a compassionate man/woman/child.

That is Mary’s heart. It is why David permits me to teach self-help freely on the Internet. He not only gave me written permission, he wrote, “Have fun with it.”

There are different types of vaginitis:

Bacterial vaginosis, which results from overgrowth of one of several organisms normally present in your vagina

Yeast infections, which are usually caused by a naturally occurring fungus called Candida albicans

Trichomoniasis, which is caused by a parasite and is commonly transmitted by sexual intercourse

Vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis), which results from reduced estrogen levels after menopause.

Which type is diagnosed for you? What is the cause? Must be on the Mediator level, right?

With our growing understanding of JSJ, we know the body is saying there is a disharmony and the symptoms are merely calling our attention to it.

As it is above, so it is below.

As you study JSJ, you will become aware of the suggestions of teachers and other practitioners who are relating their own personal experience of working with a client’s project. Any one of the suggestions will help bring harmony.

Understanding the flow of energy through the body can help. Listening to wrist and body pulses will help.

Sara Harper says if you simply jumper-cable your thumb for the rest of your life, your mind-body-spirit will be in harmony.

Having a practitioner give sessions will only be more efficient…if…the client does daily self-help.

Master Murai meditated and did Mudras and his life was saved and he began his journey that we all benefit from today.

If you simply jumper-cable your own fingers as you take 36 conscious breaths, your body-mind-spirit will be harmonized.

JSJ does not “cure”. It “harmonizes”.

If you, as a client perform the MCV self-help every day and the 36 breaths while jumper-cabling your fingers every night, you will see the difference in 7 days. Mary says so.

Ian Harris is teaching us two very important truths.

1. Teachers teach us to think.

2. The key is awareness.

So, when we study SELs and Depths and Flows and (after five 5-day basic classes) Haruki Kato’s two textbooks, it is to help us to think and become aware. We must KNOW MYSELF IT IS first, then we can better help others.

4.  MANKIND’S “SAFETY” ENERGY LOCKS – KNOW MYSELF IT IS.

Who Are They?

COSMIC EGG- no-thing , no limitations-boundless

1.  The O (“oval”), the only single flow pattern is located mid-line up the back and down the front.

a.  O (“oval”) came into the universe meaning limitless Light; the “Breath” itself; the rootless root.

b.  In man it is called the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy descending the center of the front of the body, ascending the spine, flowing over the head and descending the center of the front of the body – the “oval”.

c.  By applying our hand, thumb, finger(s), palm or back of the hand (“jumper cable”) to this harmonizing energy, the “oval”, we can help “recharge” the “run-down” energy battery; help the energy SOURCE for the body – KNOW MYSELF IT IS.

d.  AIDS: Harmony of the total being.

e.  Just quietly jumper cable (hold) the top of the head with the right hand, and the pubic bone (symphasis pubis) or the base of the spine (coccyx) with the left hand, and in a few minutes, one can feel the peace, serenity and happiness overcome the total being – KNOW MYSELF IT IS.

Next time we’ll review the “QUICKIE” Self Help recharge (jumper cable).

Thank you, Mary.

The 8th Depth

8th Depth qualities/relationships are:

The Finger, Attitude, SEL, Element, Function, Stress, Project, Age, Organs, Cervical Vertebra, Astrological Sign, Planet are all-inclusive.

The Number is 7

The Color is Invisible Light

The Music Tone is High C

The Day of the Week, Season, Direction, Metal, Mineral, Taste, Smell and “Quickie” are all inclusive.

Once again, I like to meander through my mind and envision the depths. It seems to me that from No-Thing (9th) Depth, comes the first manifestation of pure energy/no-thing/chaos and that is vibration (music and movement) in 8th Depth. (Some call 8th Depth “God” or “Big Bang”). As energy becomes more dense, and from 8th Depth music/movement comes Light, 7th Depth. I imagine continual showers of light surrounding my body like a soft summer rainfall and then it becomes more dense to become 6th Depth…my very own personal blueprint. Wow!

You REALLY might want to look at the category “From No-Thing” now.

I invite you to be the SMILE with me.
