Hold Fingers for Attitudes, Fall 2011


Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….

“Self-Change starts with Self-Study.” – Mary Burmeister

Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?      

“Attitude is key to our harmony with the universe.” – Quote from Page 21 of JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS, Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple practices each day to help harmonize your Attitudes. Try this exercise every day for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple! 


In the last newsletter we discussed the role of the Supervisor/Mediator to help you feel balanced and harmonize the 5 attitudes:  Worry, Fear, Anger, Sadness and Trying to.  One of the attractive features of Jin Shin Jyutsu is that there is often more than one way to achieve the same objective.

So a simple way to harmonize Worry is to hold your thumbs (Fig 1), left then right (or vice versa), until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected).   To maximize the result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each thumb.  Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb.  You can do this breathing practice with each finger hold below.

A simple way to harmonize Anger is to hold your Middle Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Fear is to hold your Index Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Grief is to hold  your Ring Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Trying to is to hold your Little Fingers.

It’s that easy to start reducing stress and start healing yourself!  Share this information with others who also want better health for themselves.
