I’m thinking about service…


“You may be good, but what are you good for? You’ve got to be good for something. You’ve got to be about some project, some task that requires you to be humble and obedient to the universal principles of service.”
— Stephen R. Covey

“We had to learn ourselves, and furthermore we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life but instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life, daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for the individual.”
— Victor Frankl

“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.”
— Anita Roddick

Text 2, Bladder and Kidney Function Energies, Part 3

Bladder Function Energy (continued)

“Trinity Energy flowing up the back, and 4th Depth, “I, the individual” flowing down the back – no wonder I can go to Bladder Function to help any back projects, as well as for muscle spasms, muscle projects, and the mind which is in spasm. “The burden of material thoughts makes the back weak.” – Mary. Tears are Bladder Function unloading, and one demonstration of the relationship of 4th and 2nd Depth. Kato Sensei gives us a flow pattern to harmonize the most lateral line of Bladder Function, useful in conjunction with our harmonizing pattern in Text 2. This combination can be magic when the head, neck, shoulder, etc., are crying out in pain. The Self-Help Flow for Bladder Function was my first experience of receiving jumper-cables. Jill showed me this flow when I told her I’d “had” sciatica constantly for two years since my seventh month of pregnancy (which just happened to be the month of my Sun sign, October: Libra). I utilized the flow, left and right, 30 minutes, twice a day. On the fifth day the sciatic pain disappeared. At this time my daughter, Lucy, born with health challenges, had been in a nearly critical state for months. I hadn’t even been aware of the dark cloud enveloping me those months until the fifth day, when it evaporated along with the sciatica. 4th Depth is the Great Reconciler of Life, exhaling hurts and attitudes.

Carolyn W. Casey, an astrologer extraordinaire, says, “Love forms an electrical arc between us and the beloved, opening up a current that flows both ways.” What a beautiful description of our Art. The Main Central Vertical Harmonizing Energy is one manifestation of this arc, as is Bladder Function Energy. (My understanding of the astrological aspects of Jin Shin Jyutsu, which began with Petra and Wayne, is being furthered by Carolyn’s book, Making the Gods Work for You, and contributes a great deal to this article.)

Bladder Function opens my entire system to the “infinite aesthetic powers of the Creator.” The first step of the Self-Help Flow: center 12 (Thy will) with coccyx (source of my manifesting) fills my being with the Source of Main Central. When Venus opens my heart to Beauty, the birthplace of Bladder Function Energy (20: Everlasting Eternity) is manifesting. When Lucy was near the end of her life and very ill, I depended on Venus to keep me sane and functioning. No matter how difficult our state of being at the moment, there was some hint available – light falling through a window and glinting gold the fuzz on her forehead, a meadowlark’s fluting call at dawn – of the great Beauty, which is Eternity, within which our story unfolds. When we feel we cannot stand our story another moment,  Venus tells us otherwise, giving us release through tears and a compassionate detachment on which to stand, even in roiling seas.

Standing is a function of 4th Depth – the capacity to stand on my own two feet – to be me, in balance with society, Here, NOW, unafraid. Kidney Function Energy, the ascending aspect of 4th Depth at the vibration of 12 Organ Function Energy, gives me the uprightness to stand up, to meet my life and my Creator.”

I’m thinking about impossibilities…


“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”
— Eden Phillpotts

What if you were to pretend that you were healthy, wealthy and wise? What if you were to decide to be happy, no matter what else was happening?

Take the power of ‘what if…’ seriously, and you will grasp the power to create a world of your own design. Everything, EVERYTHING begins in the imagination. Put it to work constructively for you.

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”
— William James

“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
— Lewis Carroll

The Little Man on the Ear…

Acupuncture points on the ear are effectively used to treat illness. In 1957, Dr. Nogier  developed a map of the ear based upon the inverted fetus concept, when he observed the occurrence of scars on the ears of a patient who were successfully treated for sciatic pain by French lay practitioners.  Auricular acupuncture is a treatment system based on normalizing the body’s pain and dysfunction through stimulation of points on the ear. Resulting amelioration of pain and illness is believed to be through the reticular formation through the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.


His work was first presented in France and then published by a German acupuncture society and then finally translated into Chinese. In 1958, a massive study was initialed by Nanking Army Ear Acupuncture research team which verified the clinical accuracy of Dr. Nogier’s inverted man concept of, the little man on the ear.

In 1980, a double blind experimentally controlled research study at UCLA Pain Management Center department of anesthesiology UCLA School of Medicine conducted a research study by Richard J. Kroeuning M.D., Ph.D and Terry D. Oleson Ph.D. This study reported in PAIN verified the scientific accuracy of auricular (ear) diagnosis. There is a statistically significant level of 75% accuracy achieved in diagnosing musculoskeletal pain problems in 40 pain patients. Specific areas of height and tenderness and increased electrical activity on the ear predicted specific areas of the body where some pain or dysfunction would be identified whereas the body free of pathology corresponded to non-active points on the ear. These points can be treated with needles, or without needles using electrical stimulation or small pellets or seeds applied with tape and pressed to stimulate the points.

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.”

Text 2, Bladder and Kidney Function Energies, Part 1

Cynthia (Lenssen) Broshi writes 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

“Within the revolving volume of above and below, front and back, left and right which Trinity Energy creates, 12 Organ Function Energy begins the formation of specific bodily structures and functions, as well as “the invisible consciousness, voice and energy” (Page 3, Text 2). A single flow of energy which transforms in vibration twelve times during its twenty-four hour cycle (a magician!), 12 Organ Function Energy develops, protects and repairs my Being. I’ll never forget Muriel’s reply when I asked her about the accuracy of the line drawings of this flow in our Text 2: “If I could truly see the 12 Organ Function I’d see dynamic, swirling rivers of colored light.” She pointed out that these rivers widen to encapsulate or flood an entire organ, flow along a rib or saturate a single vertebra, narrow to the width of a fingernail’s edge. As well, 12 Organ Function cycles through its twelve transformations annually, an ordered rhythm in sync with the fluid melody of the seasons.

12 Organ Function Energy is like the language of Trinity, the syntax that connects all pure Thoughts of Supervisor. Thought (Safety Energy Locks, the Depths), breathed into Being by the Main Central, activated by Diagonal Mediator, at this vibration of “individualized” body function energy, begins the story of “me”. 12 Organ Function expresses the Zodiac into the Blueprint, weaving a passionate Light-Body (Light-World), an abode for the gods (divine aspects of Being). Within the Universal One, I am made individual. Time, place and rhythm form my unique being, a unique relationship of all the gods and goddesses’ capacities, desires and actions.

Bladder and Kidney Function Energies are the expression of 4th Depth within the vibration of 12 Organ Function Energy. 4th Depth (Mercury: Transformation) is Water, the stuff of life on this earth. Mary says that 6, the number of 4th Depth, is “Evolution applied to the experience of individualized living things.” Fourth Depth is Man, an individual, in the Flow – the energy I receive from generations past, and the fulfillment of my destiny. Bladder and Kidney Function tell me that to BE Flow is to BE Source. Their consciousness makes me an artist.

Small Intestine Function transforms into Bladder Function Energy at 4:00 pm (4: Creation), a.k.a. 16:00 (16: Many’s Destiny, basis for all human undertakings). Bladder Function (4th Depth: Water) expresses Libra (Air: 2nd Depth), and through this flow I become acquainted with the powerful relationship of 4th Depth and 2nd Depth. Bladder Function is all about opposites and their relationship: Bladder is the color green, the color of Safety Energy Lock 3, of 3rd Depth, of Mediator, of Spring; yet it comes into its greatest power at the Autumnal Equinox.”

I’m thinking about the “try-tos”…


“Thinking about interior peace destroys interior peace. The patient who constantly feels his pulse is not getting any better.”
— Hubert van Zeller

Are you trying too hard to be good, to be perfect, to be spiritual?

‘Trying too hard’ is an expression of fear. If you can replace the fear with faith that everything always serves our highest good, your confidence and peace of mind will serve your aspirations.

“So many people work so hard, to achieve, attain, accumulate and cherish their fortunes. How many of us blissfully fill our days and nights being the Divine expression we are? This is the meaning of life. It is to be. As a result, all of your creations are a natural outflow from the Divine within your being. This is the joy of life.”
— Barbara Rose
