Self-Help Books ~ The Travel Maps
Iole Lebensztajn offers an article about Self-Help in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, Number 30, Fall 2000:
“I’m always amazed about how Mary has manifested the Self-Help Books. As this is an Autumn issue of the Main Central, and Autumn is related to 2nd Depth, I chose to look for 2nd Depth messages traveling through the Self-Help Book III. What follows are some souvenirs that I brought for you from my expedition.
Before startlng my expedition, I have checked some of the points of interest I would look for: Air is the element that represents 2nd Depth. Air is connected to the world of thoughts, ideas, words, etc. The element Air rules communication, the flow of information, messages or thoughts. When we think about Air we remember the breathing process. In Jin Shin Jyutsu, we understand that breathing does not happen just through the lungs’ work, but it involves every organ, every cell of our entire body, and we may say, our entire Being (spirit, mind and body). To breathe is to allow the Universal Harmonizing Energy to flow through our entire Being.
With these concepts in mind, I looked at Self-Help Book III. I remembered that there was something related to the 2nd Depth on page 15 where Mary presents one of the finger poses that helped Jiro Murai to heal himself. There she teaches us that touching the ring fingernail with the palm side of thumb will aid to ease our breathing. We know that ring fingers help the 2nd Depth at the attitude level. At the top of this same page she says, “One is where one’s thoughts are. Thoughts create words and words create deeds. Thoughts directly affect the body.” You see how she is telling us that ring finger, breathing, thoughts and words are all related, without talking explicitly about 2nd Depth or Air element. What about the page? Page 15! Safety Energy Lock 15 (the last Safety Energy Lock of the 2nd Depth) aids to create new ideas (thoughts) and adaptations, and also helps Safety Energy Locks 3 and 6 , who are breathing helpers.”
