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
“I am also reminded of an occasion when Mary and many of her senior students listened to the pulses of the same person, and everyone heard something different at their level of awareness. My daughter, who had taken one five-day seminar when she was fifteen ~ now she’s 21 ~ doesn’t practice listening to pulses. When she gives me a session, she chooses her approach to helping the body harmonize even when she isn’t sure, and I always feel better. She uses her shorthand approach with focus on 13, 14 and 15 flows or 10, 9, and 2 flows or 4, 12 and 11 flows, always knowing she can use the Main Central or Mediator. She doesn’t like toes, so she chooses not to include the 5, 6, 7, 8 flow and she finds the Supervisory flow too long. What a gift not to be so concerned if she hears the pulses correctly or if she has an in-depth handle on them. Sometimes too much attention makes a person fixate on something before it is time for it to unfold, and what we want and desire becomes elusive.
Relax. Exhale. Let the symphony unfold before us and lead us to harmony of the rhythms of the universe. With ease and grace, without effort or worry, the body receives the wonderful jumper cable of the Creator.
Thank you, Susan.
Thank you, Mary.
Thank you, David.
Gassho, Namaste, Blessings.
