Our Animal Friends
“For me, the entire experience was magical and again reminded me that sharing the benefits of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy with the animals is the place I most deeply feel Mary’s acronym of FUN.
Fullfillment I know the human/animal bond is being strengthened. Once people feel the beauty of the Universal Life Force through the pulse of their animals, it is much harder to believe in the myth of separation.
Understanding The animals have been exquisite teachers, as well as students. I have learned vast amounts from my animal students by playing detective and reading clues from ear twitching, tail wagging, hair bristling and feet stomping. They have taught me about how receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu “sessions” feels to them as Safety Energy Locks and pathways are cleared. I have witnessed “nasty” animals suddenly become very willing to change as an attitude of fear and the accumulations of pain slip away. I have also learned from watching the animal/human partnerships just how beneficial it is to the animal when the person sharing the Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy is working from a place of harmony. I have observed how useful it is to have the intention of “Being with this Being in this gentle and loving art”, of letting go of outcome and not needing to “fix”.
No-thing Again, I find the animals are wonderful teachers of Being, not Doing. They are natural teachers of harmony. This point was brought home to me in a dynamic way by Vic and his quiet ability to heal and be that beautiful creation of perfect harmony. FUN!”
