I’m thinking about security…

SECURITY

“Let us never confuse stability with stagnation.”
— Mary Jean LeTendre

“Many people think that by hoarding money they are gaining safety for themselves. If money is your ONLY hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a person can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Without these qualities, money is practically useless.”
— Henry Ford

“One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
— Morris L. West

“One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety.”
— Deepak Chopra

“The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.”
— Henry Miller

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2, Ages 6-8

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Issue Number 57, Summer, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Today we will continue with that series:

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

LIVER – 6-8 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Faith and the Power of Realization…

“At page 43 Text 2 we see that Liver receives energy from the Main Central at Sacrum 1, the area of Safety Energy Lock 2 which helps us to deal with dualities and to recognize the different aspects of oneness, instead of being held by the “rights” and “wrongs” of life. It is remarkable to notice that the notion of right and wrong is clearer for children from 6-8 than before. And also this is the time when we start receiving all the correct and incorrect marks on our tests. If children receive a lot of criticism now, they will stop exploring their capacities and potentials. This can be the cause of people 33-40 years old (Small Intestine age) feeling useless and helpless, full of doubts and feelings of inferiority and failure. Instead of judging, help kids to observe the consequences and the effects of their actions, and if the results they got were what they wanted to create. If not, motivate them to find how to change the action to create another result that doesn’t have to be better or worse, right or wrong, just another result. Successive experiences will generate the success of being more confident, sovereign and responsible. If you feel these expressions of Liver Function Energy were not well structured in your life, receive or apply to yourself the Liver Flow. As a Toe Flow, Liver will help us to walk our path with trust, sovereignty and responsibility.

There is a song of a Brazilian musician, Gilberto Gil, that for me it is about Liver Energy. It says, “I will walk with Faith, because Faith does not use to ‘fail’.”  As I have said before, Liver is a Toe Flow that helps us to walk our path. Faith is related to Pisces and for me Faith is like an Activating Principle that brings together (attracts) all the elements, persons and circumstances necessary to fulfill our potentials, dreams and ideals. And finally when we have Faith in the process there is no failure, just another way among infinite ways to create reality. Faith has to be with our perception of our manifested reality and also our awareness of our yet non-manifested reality (intuition). It is the capacity of being like an antenna in tune with our soul, which is in touch with all visible and invisible resources available for us in each moment.

Liver Function Energy says that it is very important to support kids from 5 to 8 years old to trust life and to trust themselves, their competencies and resources, because this time of life is like a seed that will make available the capacity of writing their own life story. Mary says that till 7 years children are dependant on parents’ energy. From then on they are energetically autonomous, i.e., ready to create the foundations of their own path.

If you want your 6-8 year old child (or inner child) to be in touch with the realization power of faith and trust, play with Liver Flow.”

Thank you, Iole.

Thank you, Mary.

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Today we will continue with that series:

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

LIVER – 6-8 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Faith and the Power of Realization…

“Liver is a fascinating organ that has about 500 different functions, which include cleaning, filtering, producing and storing various substances that are essential for the body. Liver working brightly represents the Principle of Activity (3rd Depth). Children from 6 to 8 years old also want to achieve their purpose of being the apprentice of so many activities related to the human development, like reading and writing, mathematics, etc. What was before dreams and fantasies (Pisces), now they start wishing to make real (realization). Liver’s job is to build, to bring into concrete existence, to realize.

As beginners they are insecure about their abilities, competencies and aptitudes and they start being more aware of their incapacities. That is the time to show them that the only way to learn something is practicing and repeating. Dedication is rewarded by improvement, expertise and efficiency (Virgo qualities, the sign that is opposite Pisces).

That is a good clue for us as adults, too. The only way to learn how to write is writing; to cook, is cooking; to drive is driving; to listen to the pulses is listening to the pulses… Parents and adults, in general, who show their skills and capacities are respected and sometimes venerated. These adults represent authority for children in this age group.

A good activity can be to start being in touch with musical instruments. (Pisces is ruled by Neptune which is related to Music.) In this stage of life children are more able in terms of coordination, following rhythms and melodic patterns. Besides that, Music allows being in touch and expressing their feelings (Liver Flow). Music brings discipline, perseverance and patience (Small Intestine Flow).

A new step of life begins during this phase related to attending elementary school. New routines and schedules, new responsibilities and tasks are demanded. The child will need to learn how to organize his/her time, for instance to do his/her homework. Homework is very important in the learning process because, again, it is practicing, and practicing is how we learn. (That is why it is not beneficial when parents do kids’ homework. It takes from them the opportunity to learn.) Again, we see the principles brought by Virgo, helping children develop themselves during Liver Function Energy (Pisces) time.”

To be continued…

Aside from me: I am reminded that the first manifestation of energy is vibration, i.e. music and movement…

 

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2, Ages 4-5

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2. Issue Number 56, Spring, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Today we will continue with that series:

Stages of Life in a Human Being

Gall-Bladder – 4-5 years old, Page 42, Text 2 (continued)

Time and Space Open to Bring Light to Life

“Leo, the sign that is opposite to Aquarius, is a lot of being with creative imagination. This feature is very useful when we are 25-32 years old, the Heart (Leo) period of life. The more free time and open space we give to children from 4 to 5, the more in tune with the expansion principle of 3rd Depth they will be, and the more Gall Bladder attributes they will show in their adulthood, i.e., flexibility, intuition and awareness of their power of creating their own reality.

We will talk more about that when we discuss the Heart time, 25-32 years, when many of us are involved with power issues and competition, thinking that we get power from each other instead of realizing from where our power comes. The 5-pointed star helps us to remember that Gall Bladder is where we receive energy and power from our Source – 6th Depth. Aquarius is the Water Bearer, the symbol of a man pouring water, pouring energy from the source to the body. If our Gall Bladder time was enjoyed during childhood, we probably won’t be so much involved in power games because we were in touch with our source of power in the Order of Creation since our beginning. If not, it is always time to receive a lot of Gall Bladder flows.

Learning to choose is another aspect related to 3rd Depth – Gall Bladder and Aquarius – that is very important for parents to support during this period of life. Allowing children to choose and observe the consequences is a big challenge. However there is no other way to learn how to choose other than choosing. Start with simple things, giving them opportunity to express themselves without criticism or judgment. The limits, a little bit more sophisticated than during Umbilicus time, are given by learning respect and consideration for others and also by taking into account their own safety. The primordial ethical lesson, treat others as you would like to be treated, can be taught mainly by parents’ example.

Here, what Mary says about being the focusing on harmony is really precious. Instead of censure, prohibition and humiliation, which generate anger, frustration, resentment and indifference, focus on their Gall Bladder qualities, i.e., their capacity to come up with new solutions, to create the future by living the present, to bring the light to life. Praise and acknowledge every time they share, they help, they care or when they are patient. (This last one is a big challenge for them.)

Talking about patience, how fascinating to realize that coccyx, the area where Gall Bladder Function Energy receives nourishment from the Main Central (page 43, Text 2), is next to 25, the Safety Energy Lock which helps us to be patient, to be still and know. For me this reinforces the idea that children from 4-5 years old need time and space for themselves to be the observer, to be present, to learn to be in touch with their inner wisdom. This ability is so precious. When we are 25-32 years old many of us are immersed in effort and trying to prove our capacity to others.

Applying or receiving Gall Bladder flow will help us to regenerate (re-generate) our inner 4 to 5 years old children. Another good practice is to observe the following: How do you react when you are praised? Do you praise?

Being honest, praise yourself at least twice a day and give at least 2 praises a day for people in your relationships. After a month, observe how this has changed your daily life.”

Thank you, Iole.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 1, Ages 4-5

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2. Issue Number 56, Spring, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

Gall-Bladder – 4-5 years old, Page 42, Text 2

Time and Space Open to Bring Light to Life

“Four to five years old is the time for children to start establishing relationships beyond family. It is when children play together, not in parallel as before, but interacting and choosing their friends – sometimes invisible friends. This is a good time to help them realize that there are different ways to live, to think and to feel. In fact, they are very curious about exploring what is new and different for them. The opportunity for parents is to foster values such as acceptance, respect, compassion and ethics. They love to feel helpful and to participate in family, home and group activities. As they look for being independent, they sometimes refuse to be helped. Show them how wonderful it is to give and receive help. This will build their self-esteem and self-confidence and prevent stubbornness and rebelliousness. This is the dawning of the process of being sociable. All of this is about how children of 4 to 5 years old engage the attention of Aquarius, the sign related to Gall Bladder.

Gall Bladder is the descending aspect of 3rd Depth, which is related to the Activating Principle and the season of Spring. These 2 aspects illustrate very well the requirements for this period of life. Children of these ages want to explore new territories, and for that they need a lot of free time and space to play and be in activity. Of course, TV programs and games and all technological equipment attract them. Aquarius is also related to technological development. However, it is very important for them to be in touch with Nature and its power of creation, recreation, cycling and recycling. They are in awe and fascinated by the manifestation of their souls and life in general.

Nowadays many children have full schedules (indoors generally). They are missing the chance of having more free time to be in Nature and also to fantasize. This is the right time for playing, experimenting, living in the world of fantasy and daydreaming. Sure enough they are very interested in kings, queens, monsters, giants, dragons and witches. They are called by the hero adventurer who takes the first steps to leave their strictly familiar environment to embark on the journey of facing the world. That’s why it is not helpful for them to watch the news or any kind of violence. They see reality through the lens of their creative imagination.”

To be continued…

 

I’m thinking about soul wholeness…

THE PATH TO WHOLENESS

We think that God has blessed us if we don’t have too many troubles. In fact, religions have erroneously taught us that pain is punishment for our sins. We often ask, “What have I done wrong?” when things do not go the way we want.

Yet, to become ourselves in the truest and deepest sense, we must face our own duality, which of course includes facing our darkness. As souls we strive for wholeness, not for perfection.

At first, we really don’t know what is going on. We just find life difficult, challenging and often painful. Eventually, after much experience and reflection, we start to find meaning in it all. Eventually, we gladly accept the means whereby we can do the Soul work we have come for.

As we become conscious as Souls, we walk our journey purposefully, embracing the reality of our earthly nature along with the truth of our divine nature.

“When we are conscious of our personal uniqueness and our universal nature we express ourselves creatively. In this way we fulfill our dreams and our life purpose.”
— Andrew Schneider

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2. Issue Number 55, Winter 2007 begins a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of that Text, authored by Iole Lebensztajn. Today we will continue with part 2 of that article:

Stages of Life in a Human Being

“During this stage of life the beginning of the root is formed of how we will relate and be authority in life. We will see later that there will be other principles (other frequencies of Organ Function Energy) that will bring their contribution, too.

It is also interesting to realize how Saturn (Father of Time) brings its influence into this period of life. Repetition is very important for children at this stage and even after. They need routine and rhythm to feel safe. They do not have any control in their lives. If you repeat the same sequence of actions every day, they become much calmer. In fact, they ask for repetition when they ask you to tell the same fairy tale over and over again. Saturn never gives up repeating until we feel we are really ready for our next step.

Have you ever thought about how much Umbilicus vitality we needed in this period of our life to double our height and to gain 5 times our birth weight? We were born completely dependent, and by the end of this period we have already learned how to walk, to talk, to eat by ourselves (with 20 new teeth!) and to dress by ourselves. From my understanding this Umbilicus time also includes pregnancy. In this short period we build our life structure, our life skeleton – physically, mentally and emotionally – brought through Umbilicus principles.

If any (or many) Umbilicus principles are not fully present in your life right now, do not blame your parents. I beliieve our parents did the best they could with the awareness they had at that time. Or if there was any disharmony that happened during this stage, which somehow prevented all the Umbilicus principles to fully develop in your life, it’s always time to have a happy childhood. Give yourself a lot of Umbilicus and 15 Flows. Besides helping to wash your heart with laughter, 15 is the place where Umbilicus is nourished by the Main Central.

All these Umbilicus qualities will be very important for future stages, mainly to Spleen stage (17-24 years) when I will need to start being able to provide my own comfort, my own nutrition, to take care of myself. See that Capricorn (Umbilicus) is opposite to Cancer (Spleen) and how Umbilicus principles are the basis for Spleen stage to develop fully. This relationship is true for all other Organ Function Energy, i.e., Gall Bladder, Heart, Liver, Small Intestine, etc. We will see this in articles in future issues of this newsletter.”

Next time we’ll look at Stages of Life in a Human Being, Gall-Bladder, –  4-5 years old – as Iole Lebensztajn continues her series in issue Number 56, spring 20007 of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter.

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 1

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2. Issue Number 55, Winter 2007 begins a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of that Text. My awareness and understanding of this page has required many 5-day classes, a lot of study and years of experience…and the articles I will share, (with thanks to David for giving me permission). I am hopeful that they will benefit you, dear readers, and I suggest that you obtain your own copy of these newsletters from the Scottsdale office; http://www.jsjinc.net. 

The initial article, Stages of Life in a Human Being, was authored by Iole Lebensztajn:

“For many years page 42 Text 2 has been calling my attention. I have been wondering: Why is Umbilicus Function Energy so important to ages 0-3? In fact, why is each Organ Function Energy a focus for life during its corresponding age? With these questions in mind, I started studying the different stages of development in the life of a human being from different authors and philosophies. Besides that, I started paying more attention to my clients, my friends, family members and myself and our different challenges in different periods of our lives.

It was amazing how rich are the relationships between each age, its challenges, experiences and needs and the principles that each Organ Function Energy brings to our reality. I will share these studies in a series of 12 articles starting now with Umbilicus and this amazing stage of our lives of which we rarely remember but builds the most profound foundations of our lives, our roots into this spiritual experience in a physical body.

0 to 3 years old is the beginning of life when all that we need is to feel welcome, receive love, protection, comfort and of course good food. Look at your notes about Umbilicus Function Energy and you will find that it protects and nourishes the body. It is like our guardian angel. When you need to be cozy and warm, give yourself an Umbilicus Flow.

Many people don’t know how to give comfort and protection to themselves. Maybe the Umbilicus principles were not well developed during this stage of their lives. Nowadays we look for comfort and emotional nutrition eating more than our bodies really need.

Umbilicus Flow is very helpful in this situation. besides this “silky” and “fluffy” aspect of Umbilicus, there is another aspect of Umbilicus (related to Capricorn and its ruler Saturn), which brings more “tone” to life.* Life has its laws and we need limits, contention and discipline to create structure and feel safe. Children demand these principles very early in life.

This is a very challenging issue for parents. It is related to both “sides” of Umbilicus – to give love and to set limits. These are not opposites. In fact, they are absolutely complementary. To hug is to give love and contention at the same time. Umbilicus will help children (of all ages) to deal with frustration, face obstacles and challenges with enthusiasm and motivation. In general, children from 0 to 3 years have a lot of these ingredients in their lives, including perseverance, persistence and determination (all related to the Capricorn aspect of Umbilicus), also known as stubbornness! How astonishing it is to observe how much Umbilicus vital energy children have to express this aspect of Capricorn! …And how much they demand from our (parents’) Umbilicus Energy in terms of vitality and authority. Therefore, Umbilicus is a very important flow for parents, too.”

*Umbilicus is a 6th Depth Function. The pulse texture is Fluffy with Tone.

Touch

Dylan Shanahan submitted a lovely and meaningful poem that was printed in Number 55 of the Winter, 2007 issue of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter. You may obtain your own copy of this publication at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Touch

Michelangelo’s hand reaches out to God, God’s hand reaches back

In a moment there is contact

What does God feel?

Exactly what I do when I touch you

Touch affirms reality with the experience of sensations

Neither to be clung to nor rejected

Life’s intent is to be accepted

Happiness shared with the contact of Love

Can you feel it?

The air touching your lungs, the fibers against your skin

The image of a smiling Buddha sitting with a grin

There connected between neurons, felt with a thought without sin

I hold on to it

Then I let it go

So that my hands are free to help you feel your glow

I am an eye which Light shines through

Until it touches you

And then Two becomes One

With the union of Earth and Sun

What one does not see and feel can be said to be unreal

When we touch we feel

The more we touch, the more we feel

The more we feel, the more our awareness will reveal

Then the unreal can be uncovered from the veil

Of our ignorance, our suffering

So touch this moment.

From the heart to the heart

Breathing,

Each other,

This World

Michelangelo’s hand reaches out to God, God’s hand reaches back

In a moment there is contact

What does God feel?

Exactly what I do when I touch you.
