All About Mary (SEL 17)

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 pages 45 & 46 of Introducing JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS. (Continued) KNOW MYSELF IT IS BOOK II.

4.  Mankind’s “SAFETY” Energy Locks ~ KNOW MYSELF IT IS:

Mary says: “Disorders are rooted in abuses: worry, FEAR, anger, sadness, and try to’s. It is AS IT IS, and as it is, IT IS. KNOW MYSELF IT IS.”

18.  The Number 17 “SAFETY” Energy Lock is located on the little-finger side of the wrist. Please pause and look at this figure: Safety Energy Locks Figure Word

a.  “17″ came into the universe meaning reproductive energy, relaxation of mind and nerves.

b.  By applying our “jumper cable” we can recharge our “run-down” energy battery; harmonize the nervous system; relax the mind; relieve ankle tension/stress.

c.  AIDS: Chest congestion, bloat/swelling; heart, breast, back tension/stress.

d.  Just quietly jumper cable (hold) right wrist with left hand and then left wrist with the right hand, and in a few minutes, more or less, one can feel the tension/stress beginning to melt away.

“QUICKIE” Self Help recharge (jumper cable):

1.  Jumper cable (hold) right ring finger with the left hand and then left ring finger with the right hand.

2.  Or jumper cable right little finger with the left and and then left little finger with the right hand.

IT IS AS IT IS, and KNOW that as it is, IT IS.

Simply BE the SMILE.

Next time we’ll review “SAFETY” Energy Lock Number 18 and the “QUICKIE” Self Help recharge (jumper cable) from pages 47 & 48.

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.

Safety Energy Locks…

…are Divine BEings for the energetic Body…

We have 26 keys to unlock 26 “Safety” Energy Locks, 26 on the left side and 26 on the right side of our body. These are located along flow pattern of left and right Major Vertical “Supervisor” Universal Harmonizing Energy.

26 means “complete” ~ that which was, is, shall be.

All “individualized” body function energy are rejuvenated and harmonized simply through unlocking sequences using one or more combination of 26 keys for “Safety” Energy Locks. These “Safety” Energy Locks are “friendly” warnings to us to STOP and CHANGE our way of existing to simply BE.

For example, when there is an overload on a particular fuse in the main fuse box, it flips off. We check the function of that particular fuse and find the cause. Our “Safety” Energy Locks act in like manner. When there is an overload, they lock as a “friendly” warning so we simply find the cause.

Tension/stress is a way for the body to say: “I’m not in harmony. I’m out of Cosmic Rhythm.”

We simply say: “Thank you, body, for telling me. I will check into why and how to get circulation pattern into rhythm once again.”

JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS THE COSMIC ARTLESS ART TO KNOW (help) MYSELF KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS.

Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy

There is a most wonderful article by Susan M. Brooks in the new book “Zero to Twenty-Six, excerpts from The Main Central”, which is available at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Ama no minaka nushi no kami ~ the Divine Presence in the Honorific Center of the Universe…

“There is a story that most of us have heard about the Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner who gave only the Main Central Vertical Flow to all of his clients. IT IS the totality. It continually helps us to simplify. The Main Central Vertical Flow is that energetic force and action ~ the masculine principle, Fire ~ which keeps us centered. Through the Breath, the exhale, we bring heaven down to earth; with the inhale ~ earth to heaven. Can we imagine the Breath, the Oval, anywhere other than in our center or core? If our head is pulled to the right, we are too much in the world ~ overdoing. If it is pulled left, mental emotional stresses are burdening us. Is our head pulled back? We’re living in the past. Pulled forward? We are oriented toward the future.

As a closing comment in a 5-day class, a student once asked, ‘If everything is within the 6th Depth, the Main Central Vertical Flow, and it is the totality, the director, why don’t we spend more time focusing on it in the course?’ Good question! Through knowing our Main Central, and giving ourselves the self-help sequence daily, its action feeds, fuels and harmonizes every molecule, organ system and Depth of our being.

The story of the endocrine system, or the system of ductless glands, is told through the Main Central Vertical Flow. These 7 glands, when harmonious are the guardians and controllers of the perfect functioning of the physical body, as well as the interconnecting links between the physical and the divine.

They rule functions such as metabolic rate, hormone balance, immune system, blood sugar regulation, calcium balance, growth.

It is also said that human personality and personal magnetism result from normal and proper functioning of the glands. Because these ductless glands reside along the center line of the body, through their delicate balancing action by the Main Central Vertical Flow, they allow form and spirit to co-exist, bringing absolute freedom from all limitation.

The Main Central Vertical Flow nourishes our Being. In its least manifest aspect it is the Breath, the ultimate healer. In its most manifest, the spine. Through the vertebrae and their corresponding fingers, specific organ disharmonies, nerve pain and symptoms throughout the body can be helped.”

Thank you, Susan.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, Master Jiro.

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.

A reader asks…

…about bradykinesia.

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

That said, I will try to explain bradykinesia as I understand it. I have been studying JSJ for 10+ years and still need to learn myself.

First, the reader must have taken at least one 5-day Basic class in order to know enough to ask the question. Do not hesitate to contact your teacher. All teachers happily answer questions their students may have. Remember that I am yet a student myself and have occasionally availed myself of help from one of my many teachers.

Bradykinesia refers to slowness of movement and is a clinical feature of Parkinson’s disease.

It will be helpful for the client to hold the thumb, which relates to the 1st Depth, Stomach and Spleen. It also relates to Safety Energy Lock 1, which is the “Prime Mover”. SEL 1 is a descending 1st Depth flow that is the birthplace of the supervisor flows, and therefore helps all depths. SEL 1 is the “Leader”, the “General Practitioner” and initiates all movement. The client can also hold opposite 1’s simultaneously as a self-help flow. Remember that SEL 1 is located on the medial (inner) aspect of the knee.

A practitioner can give the client the flow to Unlock “Safety” Energy Lock 1 as illustrated on page 15 of Text 1. (This is not the Self-Help Text 1, but the one studied by student of the 5-day Basic class.)

The flow to Unlock SEL 1 can be done easily by the client as well.

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder, so all face flows will help. Stomach Function Energy Flow is a face flow, as are Bladder Function Energy Flow and Gall Bladder Function Energy Flow. These flows are given in Text 2 from the 5-day Basic class. If I am helping energy to flow to the head, I need to finish the flow by holding 7’s (great toes) to draw energy down and help bring the body, mind and spirit into harmony.

When I think of Body Organ Flow, my mind goes directly to the finger relationship for self-help: thumb for stomach, index finger for bladder and middle finger for gall bladder.

Jin Shin Jyutsu works best if self-help is practiced on a daily basis.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

I’m thinking…

…about 7

7 Deadly Sins

  1. A proud look
  2. A lying tongue
  3. Hands that shed innocent blood
  4. A heart that devises wicked plots
  5. Feet that are swift to run into mischief
  6. A deceitful witness that uttereth lies
  7. Him that soweth discord among brethren

 The currently recognized version:

  1. Wrath
  2. Greed
  3. Sloth
  4. Pride
  5. Lust
  6. Envy
  7. Gluttony

Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Wealth without work
  2. Pleasure without conscience
  3. Science without humanity
  4. Knowledge without character
  5. Politics without principle
  6. Commerce without morality
  7. Worship without sacrifice

The Seven Deadly Needs

  1. To be right
  2. To control
  3. To judge
  4. To look good
  5. To know all
  6. To keep score
  7. To get even

Wow! 2 thoughts in one day! And such thoughts!

Why did I think of 7?

Ah well, guess I have some character building to do…

…but then there is wonderful 7:

NUMBER 7

The Ruler  –  Neptune

Relates to:

Saturn

The Chariot

Saturday

Violet

7 is a ‘magical’ number…the number of the occultist and the esoteric.  7’s are secretive, mysterious, stand-offish, intuitive and introspective. An unworldly attitude means most 7’s need to be ‘protected’.

Keywords for the Number 7:

The Analyst, Thinker, Science, Learning, Education, Study, The Written Word, Logic, Alchemy, Secrets, Myth, Religion, Ritual, Understanding, Knowledge, Isolation, Chastity, Dignity, The Collective Consciousness, Genius.

Positive Character Traits:

Specialist, inventor, loner, eccentric, thoughtful, spiritual, psychic, natural healer, inner-strength, quick-witted, wise, discerning, understanding of others, philosophical, endurance, deep contemplation, solitary, independent, mystic, psychic, keen mind, determination, individualist, knowledge-seeking, non-conformist, persistence of purpose, perfection, the analyst, thinker, science, learning, education, study, the written word, logic, alchemy, secrets, myth, religion, ritual, understanding, knowledge, isolation, chastity, dignity, the ‘Collective Consciousness’, genius.

Negative Character Traits:

Morbid, hypercritical, inactive, anti-social, pessimistic, silent, dependency, depression, stagnant, lack of persistence, pride, narrowness, distance, rigidity, argumentative, temper, morbid, misanthropic, resentful, self-righteous, unwilling and/or unable to share ideas.

The Thinker, wise, discerning, the philosopher, writer, ascetic, rigorous, long-sighted, ahead of his/her time (therefore is often in conflict with the present), deep-thinking, able to bear hardships, deep-seeing, love of knowledge, limitations, manifestation in time and space, stability, endurance, ability to set limits, good fortune, balance, completion, evolution.

The 7 energy has very strong psychic tendencies and are natural healers, with a core of inner-strength.  They are known to be quick-witted, sometimes with a dry sense of humour.

Number 7 is considered a masculine energy as well as an introvert.  The related planet is Mercury and it is related to the star sign Libra.  The associated Tarot card is the Chariot.

The 7 vibration represents rest, contemplation, spirituality, sensitivity, sympathy and mastery.

7 is the sacred spiritual number – ‘the energy of the mystics’.

The 7 vibration represents a special function of human life.  It indicates the amount of learning one must amass, in the form of personal experiences known as ‘sacrifices’.

The first cycle of 7 deals with the physical process.

The second cycle from ages 7 to 14 is marked by the development of feelings and emotions.

The third cycle from ages 14 to 21 focuses on the spiritual energy.  This is with the ‘light of spirit’ begins to dawn into a maturing consciousness.
After all is said and done, awareness is the key.

I’m thinking…

…about the rich and varied universe

“To recognize that failure at times is the common lot of all men, to see in ourselves and in others the traces of the primitive as well as the promise of the civilized, to admit that our friends’ patterns of life, although different from ours, are equally valuable, and because of the very differences indispensable for a rich and varied universe, to recognize that another may be right while we are wrong, is to attain the second great need of individual adjustment~genuine inner tolerance.” ~ Joshua Loth Liebman
