Anita Willoughby shares her experience about Eternal Life Energy…in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 52, Spring 2006:
17. ANTERIOR-POSTERIOR VERTICAL HARMONY ENERGY (Eternal Life Energy)
It is important to understand that this blossoming usually takes place over a period of 4-6 weeks, and it was all condensed into one day of intense flowering, blooming springtime. I don’t remember when, maybe it was days later, or maybe it was when I was teaching a class, that those two little circles entered my awareness and a little light bulb went off in the recesses of my brain. It was from this life experience that I gained a kinesthetic understanding of this page. I felt I had embodied the 2 circles, and from this embodiment and daydreaming, understanding unfolded.
Those two little circles are connecting the Light of the 7th Depth through our breath and through our higher vision, to our 5th Depth, buried in the secret room within our brain matter, protected by skin, skull and 3 layers of membrane (dura mater, arachnoid mater and pia mater – hard mother, spider and soft mother respectively). These two little circles are the entry point to the center of our heads, where the inner chamber, inner sanctum and control center of our being is hidden and protected. This being 5th Depth in the head, we know the qualities of 5th Depth:
- our spiritual inheritance,
- rising above the 5 senses into our 6th sense,
- the pineal and pituitary glands,
- our skeletal system (the layer of the body which is developed by our 5th Depth),
- the two organ flows
- the Heart, the nucleus of our being, the strongest and most prominent organ in our body, which circulates food and oxygen to the organs and tissues
- and the Small Intestine, which changes food into blood to be distributed by the heart.
This is 5th Depth. These 2 little circles access the inner chamber of the head, 5th Depth, and in turn, integrate with the other depths in the head. We know that the number 7 is the higher vibratory number or the positive number for the 5th Depth, and we just happen to have 7 orifices in our heads, 7 endocrine glands and 7 chakras (spiritual centers) in our bodies.
Deep within the many protective layers of our head lies the egg-shaped thalamus, which in Greek means inner room, inner sanctum, and seems to be an apt name for this region. The thalamus has been called the telephone exchange between the spinal column and the cerebral hemispheres. The hypothalamus, which lies below (hypo) the thalamus, “is the main visceral control center of the body and is vitally important to overall body homeostasis.” (Human Anatomy and Physiology by Elaine N. Marieb, p. 392) One of its many jobs is to control the functions of the endocrine system, including, of course, the pituitary and pineal glands. The endocrine glands store energy and regulate the distribution of energy to the body. According to Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, “…the endocrine glands underlie intuition and the perceiving and understanding of universal mind.” (Sensing, Feeling and Action)
