I’m thinking about the mind…

ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Mental, emotional and physical events are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“I went to the root of things, and found nothing but Him alone.”

I’m thinking about verse 72 of the Tao…

When the people do not fear worldly power a greater power will arrive

Don’t limit the view of yourself

Don’t despise the conditions of your birth

Don’t resist the natural course of your life

In this way you will never weary of this world

The Sage knows himself, but not as himself

he loves himself, but not as himself

he honors himself, but not as himself

Thus, he discards the view of his own self and chooses the view of the universe

 

…Verse 72 from “Tao Te Ching”

Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star

36 Breaths & Holding Fingers, Winter 2010

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

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?
Try either of these exercises below (or both) everyday for 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

THE 36 BREATHS
The simplest and most important SELF-HELP tool we have is our BREATH – The EXHALE and
the INHALE. When we exhale consciously and deeply, we release tension and stress. When
we inhale naturally, we receive an abundance of life energy. This life energy connects our
body, mind, and spirit. A good formula is EXHALE; DROP YOUR SHOULDERS AND SMILE.

Simply and consciously exhale while dropping your shoulders as if they are touching your
feet. The smile comes naturally as you release and gently welcome the inhalation.
Each day use this formula to EXHALE consciously and INHALE naturally, 36 breaths. You can do
this all at once or you can do 9 complete exhales and inhales four times per day.

HOLDING YOUR FINGERS
Another exercise is to gently wrap one hand around your other hands’ thumb and each finger
individually and then hold the palm of the other hand. Hold each finger, thumb, and palm for
at least 2 minutes apiece or longer. You can choose which hand you want to hold or do both.

The fingers and palm have energy connections to our mind, body and spirit. Alternatively, you
can do both exercises together as well… the 36 Breaths while holding your fingers. While you
hold each finger/position, do 6 complete breaths and then move to next finger/position and
repeat.

It’s that simple to start reducing stress and healing yourself! Share this information with

Left and Right Supervisor and Mediator Flows, Summer 2011

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

 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?        

 “It is the daily application of the simple sequences that will accomplish results as well as develop patience.   The knowing of the sequences but not applying them will not accomplish results.  It is awakening the awareness of the Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF, which will accomplish results” ~                                                                                      Quote from Page 9 of JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS, Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple 3 steps each day to harmonize your Left “Supervisor” and “Mediator” Harmonizing Energy. (Just start with Left thumb for Left Flow) Try this exercise everyday for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple! 

 LEFT AND RIGHT SUPERVISOR and MEDIATOR FLOWS 

As we discussed in the last issue, the Main Central Vertical Flow is the source of our life energy. This pathway runs down the center of the front of the body and back up the spine.   Amongst other things, it harmonizes what is known as the Left and Right “Supervisor” Harmonizing Energy.  This energy supervises the harmony of the left and right sides of the body.  The flow pattern of “The Supervisors”, begins between the belly button and the groin of the left side of the body, running down the inside left leg and up the back, eventually crossing over to harmonize the right side of the body.  As the circulation of this energy continues another very important energy comes into play – The Left and Right “Mediator” Harmonizing Energy.  Starting at the third thoracic vertebrae, and moving through the arms, this energy “mediates” from left to right and right to left sides of the body to see that each side of the body is in harmony with the Main Central Vertical Flow.

So with all these vital roles you can see that is important to keep these flows in harmony. Here is a Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help process to harmonize these pathways.

Harmonizing the Supervisor and Mediator flows regularly helps you feel balanced and importantly will also harmonize the 5 attitudes – Worry, Fear, Anger, Sadness and Trying to.  This ensures that you will have plenty of energy. Some people find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others like to use it to invigorate them upon awakening. For optimum results, use this daily.

SUPERVISOR/MEDIATOR FLOW For left side energy (For right side energy, just replace left side directions with the equivalent right side directions)

Step 1a: Place left thumb over left ring fingernail (Make a circle with palm side of thumb over ring fingernail).

Step 1b: Place right hand over left shoulder.  (Simply place hand over shoulder as one would a coat hanger).

Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.

Step 2: Bring medial (inner sides) of left and right knees, together (feet apart or together).   Or place right instep against left inner knee.

Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your knees synchronize with each other.

These steps help to: Clear the Chest and revitalize ascending and descending energy It’s that simple to start reducing stress and healing yourself!  Share this information with others who also want Better Health for Themselves.

I’m thinking about feelings…

DON’T THINK AWAY YOUR FEELINGS

“When emotions are managed by the heart, they heighten your awareness of the world around you and add sparkle to life. The result is new intelligence and a new view of life.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

How do you intellectualize your emotions?

Many of us live so much in our heads that we intellectualize our emotions. We analyze, rationalize and explain them away so quickly that we don’t actually experience them.

Learn to honour your emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course, you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.

“Learning to be aware of feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively so they guide us to happiness, is an essential lifetime skill.”
— Joan Borysenko

I’m thinking about control vs. trust…

OPEN TO TRUST

“When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.”
— Steve Rapson

WE SEEK TO CONTROL OUR LIVES WHEN WE DO NOT TRUST, WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE. Our ego, perceiving itself to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself.

At the root of our need to control, we find FEAR. It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, TRUST AND FAITH ARE ASPECTS OF THE HEART. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind.

“The only real security in life lies in relishing life’s insecurity.”
— M. Scott Peck

“Do not abandon trust when your ego thinks things should be different than they are.”
— Wayne Dyer

Hold Fingers for Attitudes, Fall 2011

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

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! 

HARMONIZING OUR ATTITUDES WITH SIMPLE FINGER HOLDS

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.
