Janet Oliver contributed the following article to The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue number 12, Spring 1996:
“Twelve years ago today – it’s October 10, 1995 as I write – I met Mary. I first saw her as she walked to the front of the classroom in Los Angeles, radiant, a picture of health itself, perfectly poised on her 4-inch heels. She smiled, paused as the class hushed to a respectful silence, and calmly wrote on the overhead projector. The words appeared on the screen above her: “NOW KNOW MYSELF, BE IT IS, IS.” I had no idea what she meant, but I wrote it down anyway. Then she spoke the following words:
“Let’s drop our shoulders and give ourselves a hug. Exhale and receive all of your cosmic abundance. Be the smile…and all our cells smile with us. So we have 27 thousand billion smiles!”
As Mary continued to speak, blending the physio-philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu with the information, I felt that there was something quite powerful going on, beyond her words, but that I didn’t know what it was. The information was overwhelming, confusing. “Confusion is progress,” Mary said. Yet, I observed each person in the room, including me, relaxing as the days went by, becoming more bright and alive. Faces were glowing. Tension melted away. Feelings of “I don’t understand” dissolved into the breath. Mary encouraged the group: “Understanding and awareness come their own time. They cannot be rushed by efforting.”
On one of the lunchtime breaks, Mary was jumper cabling a woman who had a large infected open wound (maybe 2 to 3 inches in diameter) on her leg. It was interesting to watch. As Mary held energy locks on various areas of her body, the edges of the wound (maybe a quarter of an inch) would turn a bright pink, and then right before my eyes, the pink edges turned to normal skin! Then another new edge would turn brighter pink, and within a couple of minutes, normal skin appeared. Again and again, this process repeated. Mary did not completely close the wound as it became time to start class, but in about 20 minutes she had demonstrated the capacity of the jumper cables to create considerable visible healing. I saw Mary’s humility, and I experienced awe.”

Thank you, Mary.
