Pulses or the Nature of Listening, Part 3

Issue Number 40, Spring 2003, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter contains an article submitted by Matthias Roth.

Pulses or the Nature of Listening

“Next, let page 5 in Text 2 remind you that there are different ways in which, under any finger, superficial or deep, a pulse may be calling out to you: “rapid, uneven, heavy, disorderly, missing or fading out”. Without allowing your mind to give preference to any one of these over the others, simply follow what talks to you first, TRUSTING that it is reliably and faithfully the one for you to work with in that moment.

Simply look it up on pages 6 and 7, that’s what they are for! Now as you keep playful and relaxed you start enjoying seeing the other bits of information you have collected (like “bustline, waistline, hipline,” etc.) fall into the big picture when you are ready, while knowing all along that it is the quality of the listening, not the analysis, that creates the space for change!

As one student expressed at the outcome of a pulse listening class in Denver last summer: “I came here having been a Jin Shin Jyutsu student for eight years and always feeling, ‘I can’t do pulses!’ What I am taking away with me is, ‘I can totally do this.’ and: ‘It’s not such a big deal'”.”

Thank you, Matthias.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings.
