We continue our review of Cynthia (Lenssen) Broshi’s article about Bladder and Kidney Function Energies in issue Number 46, Fall 2004 of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter. You may obtain this issue at http://www.jsjinc.net.
Bladder Function Energy
“Born at Safety Energy Lock 20 (Perpetual Consciousness), Left and Right Bladder Function Energy ascend to the center top of the head – as close as the bodily “I” gets to the heavens – where they intermingle. Bladder Function builds my being with Libra, which is ruled by Venus. This goddess expresses Balance, Harmony, Beauty and Relatedness. Immediately Bladder Function moves from duality – left and right, masculine and feminine, “I” and the Universe – to One. Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac (7: Perfect Life Power, Law) and while the previous six build my individual Being, Libra sees there is no separation of my self and others. Bladder Function is Love for the entire system. Love for the deserts and the rainforests of my mind, for every prince and pauper, nut and bolt that make up the culture in which I live. 4th Depth fear can result in judgments, blaming, phobias, prejudice, etc. etc. etc. On Page 43, Text 2, I see that Bladder Function Energy returns home to the Main Central between the 13s (13: Love Thy Enemies). Bladder Function, one of my three Face Flows, clears the mind from head to toe. It releases fears from 13 – the Fountain of Youth – restoring the Beauty of Venus. Bladder Function knows that every facet of Being, when in harmonious Flow, reflects every other – creating the brilliance of the jewel of We IS.
Mary tells me that Bladder Function Energy is to Text 2 what the Main Central is to Text 1. Wow! I’m certain I don’t completely understand this, but the flow’s choreography through space gives me a beginning. In Text 1, the “infinite aesthetic powers of the Creator”, circulating as Main Central Vertical Harmonizing Energy, separates into Left, Right, and Center, expressing Trinity. Bladder Function Energy, from the area of the Crown Chakra, separates into two parts (Duality, Balance). One flows to the earlobe and scatters, energizing my capacity to be attentive and to hear. As well, we know from Traditional Chinese Medicine that the entire body is represented in the ear, an organ which is key to balance. One part enters the brain, emerges as two rivers (Duality, again) on each side of the spine, then separates further so that the three rivers – my personal trinity – flow down the left and right side of the back.
The medial line of this trinity, from the coccyx circulates the bladder, kidney, and rectum, aiding the 4th Depth function of elimination. One aspect of this line’s janitorial sweep “ascends”. Where? Perhaps to rejoin Trinity – “Matter is the lowest degree of Spirit, Spirit the highest degree of matter.” – Mary. At Safety Energy Lock 25 (7: Perfect Life Power) the two more lateral lines recombine, returning Bladder Function to the earthiness of Duality. From 25 and side of coccyx the two rivers descend to join at Safety Energy Lock 8 (as above, so below), from which a single stream descends into the little toe – as far as the bodily “I” gets from heaven! Next time you walk barefoot notice how the little toes give ballast. They are the cornerstones of the pyramid of Mind, grounding the base, which holds aloft the apex of your crown. If they’re filled with old documents, treasures, fears, etc., I may feel a bit tipsy. Safety Energy Lock 6 (the number of 4th Depth) is the cause of dizziness, and cleaning out the little toes (for instance, with the Movement Order of Disharmony, page 49, Text 2) restores balance to body and mind.”
