I’m thinking about verse 76 of the Tao…

When life begins we are tender and weak
When life ends we are stiff and rigid
All things, including the grass and trees, are soft and pliable in life
dry and brittle in death

So the soft and supple are the companions of life
While the stiff and unyielding are the companions of death

An army that cannot yield will be defeated
A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind
Thus by Nature’s own decree the hard and strong are defeated
while the soft and gentle are triumphant


…Verse 76 from “Tao Te Ching”

Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star

I’m thinking about emotions…


“Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions…. It’s time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it.”
— Doc Childre

Many of us believe that we need to keep a tight lid on our emotions. We fear that if we ever allow these emotions to be expressed, they will do serious damage.

But if we summon up the courage to truly feel our emotions, we discover that they don’t last. The monster in the closet turns out to be a pussycat. In fact, if we are willing to experience our emotions completely, without resistance of any kind, they burn themselves out in only a few minutes.

The only thing that keeps emotions alive within you over long periods is your unwillingness to acknowledge them.

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.”
— Joseph Collins

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 8

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 54, Fall 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

Page 42 speaks of the relationship of Me ↔ Family, Me ↔ World. While the journeys of these relationships may be complex, I can trust that the Pulse will express the harmonizer in this breath, in this moment. The left side of Raul’s face developed paralysis soon after his 17th birthday. Tests revealed “calcification” of his cerebellum and a tumor in his left ear. The cerebellum lives at the base of the skull, right where Spleen Function Energy comes home to the Main Central. Age 17 is when Spleen Function begins to lead 12 Organ Function. So it wasn’t surprising to hear Spleen yelling in the Pulse. Raul started to utilize the Spleen Flow daily, along with the Main Central. Still, at each session, the Pulse wouldn’t calm until I also worked with Spleen. As well, the Pulse asked for flows related to Spleen Function on the Trinity level: 1st Depth flows, and Safety Energy Lock 23.

With the paralysis gradually receding, after some weeks, the pulse changed – now Lung Function Energy spoke clearly, and with a rocky, 2nd Depth texture. The Right Pulse dominated – speaking of cause as being in “my lifestyle” – experiences, attitudes, actions. Right at this time Raul’s mother told me of her son’s experiences of loss. His father had died when he was age 9. Two years ago, at age 15, he’d moved from the forest which had nurtured a gentle childhood to a harsh, urban environment. At the same time his two best friends (his older brothers) moved far away – 2nd depth: grief…Critical Age of Lung Function Energy: 9-10 …Age 15: transition from the 1st Depth time of my Life Story to the 2nd Depth time…texture of both cerebellum and pulse: rocky: 2nd Depth.

As invisible energy flows freely, Energy of Generation and Regeneration – my inheritance and my choice – work together. At this time things really started to move. For the first time in our hands-on together, Left Safety Energy Lock 4 – culmination of 1st Depth, the window through which Spirit flows into Body – began to breathe. Raul’s dearest brother visited for a month. He completed High School and started moving into a world of his own making – taking classes of interest at the local college and finding a summer job he enjoyed and at which he excelled. His ability to smile returned, and gradually improvements were seen in the MRIs. This summer, with money he earned, Raul visited both his childhood home and his brothers. And his Mom has discovered the joys of self-help.

Destiny, Karma, Inheritance, evolution: names for mysterious processes which speak through the map of page 42. These are processes which “I” do not control, vital experiences which escort the me I AM fully into this life. Harmonizing through these experiences may express in the body and/or through other aspects of Being. Jin Shin Jyutsu helps me find Completion. “Matter is the lowest degree of Spirit, Spirit is the highest degree of Matter.”

I’m thinking about verse 75 of the Tao…

Why are the people starving? –

Because their grain is being eaten up by taxes

That’s why they’re starving


Why are the people rebellious? –

Because those above them meddle in their lives

That’s why they’re rebellious


Why do the people regard death so lightly? –

Because they are so involved with their own living

That’s why they regard death so lightly


In the end,

The treasure of life is missed by those who hold on

And gained by those who let go

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 7

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 54, Fall 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

Page 42 in action. On his sixth day, during circumcision, Benny’s doctor had some difficulty with stitching the tissues together. When I first saw Benny at two weeks old, bleeding was still a concern. He wasn’t sleeping well and he fussed a lot, especially after eating.

Umbilicus Function is leader of 12 Organ Function ages 0-3, and comes home to the Main Central at the reproductive organ. Umbilicus spoke clearly before the circumcision. Benny’s Sun Sign is Capricorn (Umbilicus). He’s the 8th child (8: As above, so below. Umbilicus: bringing Heaven to Earth), the 10th family member (Umbilicus: the 10th aspect of 12 Organ Function Energy). And at birth the umbilical cord was wrapped so tightly around his neck that it had to be cut before delivery. The difficulty with the circumcision was simply one more voice saying, “Umbilicus is coming to spark this family!”

Mary recommends utilizing Reversing and Increasing of 1st Depth when I first meet a new one. At the vibration of Mediator this is a 1st depth time of life. Is the bridge of Mediator able to transport the SOURCE of Trinity to the body? Benny’s Left flow was rocky, his Right flow gummy and thick. I started with the softer side. LEFT – Energy of Generation – was the Source of the project, while RIGHT – Energy of Regeneration – “me” – offered to break down the old. Once the Right loosened up a bit I moved to the Left. It wouldn’t budge. So I returned to the Right, moving from Right to Left periodically, listening to the Right waken and giving the Left an opportunity to hear the Right speak of movement. Once there was a faint stir in the Left, I went to Right Umbilicus.

“No Way!” Benny bawled. I hung in a few minutes, to see if he was ready to let go. “No Way!” Once his Mom had calmed him, we returned to his 1st Depth. This we repeated three times: as tensions melted with 1st Depth, I returned to Umbilicus, and Benny yelled. So I left his Mom with homework: Reversing and Increasing of 1st Depth daily, the first step of the 13 Flow (13 harmonizes relationship of Umbilicus and SOURCE), and fingers and toes.

When I saw Benny two weeks later Reversing and Increasing of 1st Depth now flowed easily. In various ways he was more comfortable in his body; however, his hunger for Umbilicus Function Energy was obvious. Any time his mother started her own self-help he’d cry – if he was asleep he’d immediately waken and yell – and wouldn’t stop until she jumper cabled him. Herein spoke an Umbilicus gift that Benny brought his parents. Umbilicus is a feminine, nurturing energy. Benny thirsted for this connection. In order to nurture him they had to deepen their resolve to care for themselves – he brought the need for separation, “individualizing”. His mother treated him daily, and when it was time for her self-help, she gave him to another’s care. When he was far enough from the jumper cable energy not to sense it, he could be happy while she helped herself.

How long do we treat a one-month old? They’ll let us know. Our first session was fifteen or twenty minutes. Now, in our second session, Benny glided into a blissful sleep while we enjoyed a very thorough 13 Flow for nearly an hour. We continued with a Right Umbilicus Flow. Haltingly, slowly, it moved. Then all of a sudden the sleeping Benny glowed as though made of silk. Peering closely I could see that every teeny-tiny pore of his skin surface held a minute pearl of sweat. 4th Depth unloading! A sure sign the session is over.

I’m thinking about gratitude…


“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want.”
— Margaret Young

The formula for success is Be, Do, Have. If we seek abundance, we must be abundant in spirit. We can begin to cultivate spiritual wealth by opening our hearts in gratitude.

Start a gratitude journal today. Each evening, write down at least 5 things for which you are grateful. This simple tool will help you open your eyes to the abundance of your world right now.

“Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”
— Estonian proverb

All Combined Energy-Timing, Part 6

Cynthia Broshi shares her understanding of All Combined Energy, Pages 43 and 42, Text 2, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 54, Fall 2006:

“Open your textbook and day-dream.” ~ Mary Burmeister

Who, What, Where, When, How is Disharmony According to Age?  Page 42 describes results of this individualizing of the Blueprint. The “cause” of projects relating to this page is the transformation of an Organ Function Energy as it led the building of the Being in the womb. It may look like the cause is an accident or traumatic event. However, when the area of the body where an Organ Function comes home to the Main Central is sufficiently injured so as to hinder the energy’s return home, and this happens during the years when that Organ Function leads “Individualized” Body Function Energy, the event is manifestation of a project woven into the Blueprint when that Organ Function led the development in the womb.

We call these projects “critical” as they result in disability or shortened life-span unless the Blueprint, as given in the womb, itself is harmonized. There is no difference in treatment whether a disharmony “originates” in the womb or lifestyle – the only difference is that this page may take more house-cleaning. We can always follow the pulse: the pulse expresses Cause and Harmonizer. With this page, at some time we will hear the voice of the Organ Function who led the project into the Blueprint speak clearly. At some level, that Organ Function is Cause. Utilizing its flow pattern as given in Text 2 unlocks Appropriate “Safety” Energy Locks Located on MAJOR VERTICAL (Supervisor) HARMONIZING ENERGY” – so Universal Energy (Trinity) can re-Create the Blueprint of that Organ Function Energy.

When a child is born with a big project, we can always go back to the first month in the womb when 6th Depth SOURCE/BREATH began building the being. Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function Energies lead the manifesting of Totality into tissue during the first month. They are contained, supported and solidified by the energy of Saturn: 1st Depth. As the Universal Blueprint “individualized” for this new Being, a relationship of these energies formed that does not fully support life (6th Depth) in the earth (1st Depth) of the body. Daily use of lows that harmonize this relationship of 6th Depth and 1st Depth – Diaphragm and Umbilicus Function, Reversing and Increasing of 1st Depth, 1, 13, 10, Main Central (as well, always, as whatever the pulse requests) – can help to re-form the foundation of Blueprint. Mary says, “A little one in need at birth: Jin Shin Jyutsu for one year takes care of any label; otherwise [it takes] three to seven years.”

Page 42 is speaking when projects relate to the ages of All Combined Energy-Timing. For instance, skin, respiratory or mental projects which show up during ages 9-13 are of a critical nature. Though the projects may not appear medically critical at the time, they indicate a deep need. Through these projects 2nd Depth calls out for help: Lung and Large Intestine Function Energies transformed as they were building my Being during the sixth month in the womb. Jumper Cabling with these flows can help to re-establish their harmonious reflection of Trinity. When I pull out my 9 Months of Creation in Womb hand-out from class, I see that 4th Depth is supporter of the 2nd Depth Function Energies during that month. Using 4th Depth flows will unburden and nourish Lung and Large Intestine Function.

I also hear page 42 when a big project commences after an injury at the location where the current leader of 12 Organ Function Energy returns home to Main Central. In class recently, Susie Plettneer shared an example: her cousin suddenly began experiencing seizures. Three weeks before he’d been hit on the top of his head. Noting his age (between 25-32), Susie utilized the Heart Function Energy – no more seizures. When I recognize that an injury experienced many years previously relates to this page, I can still utilize the Organ Function who led at the time of the injury.
