Iole Lebensztajn writes an article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 37, Summer 2002 about the Fatigue Flow:
We need never know FATIGUE. Energy can never TIRE. It is our PERSONAL imbalance that causes FATIGUE.
When our 26 “Safety” Energy Locks are unlocked, we are in a state of ECSTASY – the SECRET of the fountain of youth, available equally to all eternally – that which was, is and shall be, IS. The MASTER KEY is our degree of desire and trust, the KNOWING.
The SIMPLE reason for perfect health and happiness is being master of anything we do – LOVE IT regardless of what it is – menial, boring or inspirational work. There should be no person or thing one dislikes – as hatred develops imbalance, which causes FATIGUE.
HAPPINESS is an indication of our HARMONY. We have our TWO HANDS as our REJUVENATORS and HARMONIZERS. With these two hands we have the privilege of helping ourselves and others to get in tune with the universe. Hands are generators of the Creator Power – not from within us, but a part of the ever-constant and forever balanced universal SUPPLY. We need only be AWARE of this supply. ~ Mary Burmeister
One of the definitions of the word Fatigue in the dictionary is “decreased capacity or complete inability to function normally because of excessive stimulation or prolonged stress”. In Jin Shin Jyutsu language, we would restate it saying that Fatigue is a decreased capacity to BE FUN (Fulfillment, Understanding, No-thing) due to attitudes.
When I am crystallized in worry, fear, anger, grief and/or pretense, I tend to follow an abusive lifestyle, overworking, overeating or any other way of overrunning myself. Nature has an immense capacity to adapt, as does my body, which is part of Nature. However, when I repeatedly make use of its resources in a disharmonious way, I can run down my battery energy and cause disruption and the malfunctioning of my body and my life. Physiologically this process can result in a buildup of metabolic residues, debris and toxins that are not eliminated. The energy of life will not circulate properly due to these scattered remains causing deviation, reversing, stagnation, etc. This can result in all kinds of scary, critical and/or chronic labels that affect the function of my immune system, lymphatic system, nervous system, circulatory system, etc.
Nevertheless, I remember that the Fatigue Flow Adjustment is also known as the Trinity Flow, which is the combination of MAIN CENTRAL Vertical, Left and Right MAJOR Supervisor and DIAGONAL Mediator (Activating Principle) UNIVERSAL HARMONIZING ENERGY (see page 60, Textbook 1). One of the meanings of the word “adjust” is to bring into proper relationship, and to adapt to new conditions. Again, it is amazing how accurate Mary’s work is in selecting such appropriate words that express the Physio-Philosophy on every page of her books. That is exactly how this combination, the Trinity, will help me: bringing me into proper relationship with myself (in body, mind and spirit), with my reality and with the Source of Universal harmonizing Energy and by not being stuck in attitudes, I am able to adapt to new conditions, making choices that reflect who I really am.
It is also interesting to realize that Mary talks about this flow on pages 58, 59 and 60. Adding up these numbers, we will have 15 that “washes our hearts with laughter” and “brings forth new ideas and adaptations” (page 40, Self-Help Book 2). Safety Energy Lock 15 and the Trinity Flow open up Safety Energy Lock 3, the Respiratory Specialist. It is really simple. I just need to breathe. breathing is the life harmonizer.
Mary says that complexities create psychic fatigue, and I remember as well Mary’s words in the Fatigue handout shown in the box on page 1, “The SIMPLE reason for perfect health and happiness is being master of anything we do – LOVE IT regardless of what it is…” Therefore, to be in relationship with every expression of my life will help me to simplify and to BE new at every moment, then I “need never know FATIGUE” because I am completely capable of BEING FUN.
Thank you, Iole.
Thank you, Mary.
Thank you, David.
Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
