The Zero of “0-26”

This article starts a series of articles by our IT IS Seminar faculty on the Safety Energy Locks from a Self-help perspective.

Sara Harper begins the series with her article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 36, Spring 2002:

The Zero of “0-26”

Mankind’s “Safety” Energy Locks – Know Myself IT IS: the O (“oval”), the only single flow pattern.

O (“Oval”) came into the universe meaning limitless light; the “Breath” itself; the rootless root.

In man it is called the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy descending the center front of the body, ascending the spine, flowing over the head and descending the center of the front of the body – the “oval”. ~ Excerpts from Mary’s Self-Help Book 2, pg. 9

So take a moment, to feel the breath and the “oval” with eyes closed, body relaxed and comfortable. Experience the “oval”, the breath, life itself. With each inhaling and exhaling, experience your own body’s energy and breath. Inhaling up the back and exhaling down the front, enjoy this simple life breath.

One can simply place the right hand on top of the head and the left hand on the pubic bone, or one can simply hold one’s palm with one’s fingertips and count exhaling from one to thirty-six.

Now we are in the “BREATH” itself. Being in the “Breath only” is heaven on earth, where there is “nothing”. This is a non-secret secret of Jin Shin Jyutsu…to be utilized.

One man attending the IT IS seminar felt as though this single flow pattern, the O (“oval”), saved his life after having a major heart attack. The only thing he could think of until medical help arrived was the breath up the back and down the front…his connection to life…so simple and so powerful.

Thank you, Sara.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
