Issue Number 40, Spring 2003, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter contains an article submitted by Susan Schwartz that I find most helpful.
Pulse, The Rhythm of Life
“So exhale, and simply listen. We get distracted by the hustle and bustle of the world and are unable to hear the sweet harmonious melody of oneness. I know the feeling of having all my thoughts go round and round in my head, trying to figure out what I hear and what I don’t hear, what it means, and if I have it right. It is this distraction that blocks my ability to hear and appreciate the pulses without judgment. All pulses are beautiful because they speak to us and give us the door to harmony.
Presently, as I sit home caring for my dying uncle, I just place my hands on Jin Shin Jyutsu Safety Energy Locks, and he is comforted. I don’t hesitate to use my hands even though I do not always have the opportunity to listen to his pulses.
Jiro Murai, in proper Japanese fashion, would bow in greeting a person, and would scan the body as he bowed, gleaning information of how the energy of the Creator is moving. The confirmation of harmony or disharmony is then reflected in the individual’s body. I really believe that Jiro Murai may not have always used pulse listening as his only tool. After spending time with Kato Sensei, I have seen how effective he is in utilizing Jin Shin Jyutsu body reading (changes in conformation) without listening to pulses. I realize that the pulses are a tool to unlock the mysteries of the body, the more mysterious aspects of our nature. When we are ready to use more information, more will be made available to us. In the meantime I pave the way, creating the space for me to grow and learn by listening.”
