Jed Schwartz on Reversing and Increasing of the Depths, Part 1

(For Florin)

Jed Schwartz writes an article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 38, Fall 2002, about Reversing and Increasing of the Depths:


In our study of Jin Shin Jyutsu we find that there are no accidents or coincidences, and that Mary created the layout of the texts with deep purpose and meaning. Each word carefully chosen to express many layers of insight and depending on where your awareness is, determines your layer of perception. This esoteric work and study is endless and yet we are given one tenet, keep it simple. To examine the last 5 pages of Text 1, we can go in so many directions. To keep it simple, I see these 5 pages as helping us go back to the beginning of simply checking the status of each depth and helping it.

When our DIAGONAL Mediator UNIVERSAL HARMONIZING ENERGY is disharmonized it creates disorder in our life, and it is the Depths that show the effects of this universal flow, causing imbalance. We are no longer being that perfect life power (p.61) or in the will of the Creator (p.12). To bring this all back into Divine order we have simple ways to Reverse and Increase the specific Depth. Reversing causes it to change the disharmonious direction in which it is going, and then to increase it, to give it energy.

I use these Reversing and Increasing of the Depths to quickly adjust what is going on. When there is a specific texture, attitude and/or stuck that is present, then I often go to these flows to get things going.

As I sit to write this article I have just received news that one of my close friends has suddenly passed over into the 6th Depth following a sudden automobile accident. The feeling of loss and sadness flows through me as I feel and experience the shock of this unexpected news and the memory of time spent together. Sitting with these feelings, I am aware that I need to keep my 2nd Depth open and harmonized.

Clients who come to me after the loss of a loved one most often receive the Reversing and Increasing of 2nd Depth. Now, I am most aware that I want to feel what I need to feel, yet from a place of awareness, wanting to change the directions (reverse it) if there is disharmony and then flow with the harmony (increase it). Safety Energy Lock 2 allows me to see Through the Creator’s Eyes, to look back to heaven for clear vision so that with Safety Energy Lock 24, I have the peace that comes with knowing the truth of life. This first step brings me back home to my body (hipline). Safety Energy Lock 14 helps me to be in equilibrium to be sustained knowing that I live between this earth plane and the spirit plane. I feel myself letting go more to be breath. From this place I KNOW that I can stay connected to my friend although he is no longer in the physical. High 1 connects my head and my feet, my Face and Toe flows. It cleans any residue of holding on, opening my 1st, 3rd and 4th Depths (Stomach, Spleen, Liver and Kidney flows).

From the Lumbar Circle one can see how 2nd Depth is unburdened, energized and supported. It connects to my bustline to begin the opening of Safety Energy Lock 13. Love fills me. This fountain of life flowing connects me with Spirit. I am aware of a much different energy within me. The 9 expresses its Self, ending of one cycle and the beginning of another, and I know that a new chapter in our relationship will now begin. I am missing my friend from my physical world; however, now there is the flow of love that heals and soothes me.

How perfect this flow is to be on page 63. These 3 steps connect me with Spirit, mind and body as do the flows for Reversing and Increasing of 1st and 4th Depths. Each opens the hip, waist and bustline – Safety Energy Locks 26 (bustline), 9 (waistline) and 2 (hipline) of the Reversing and Increasing of 1st Depth – and Safety Energy Locks 2, high 1, 4/12/11 and 23 (waistline) in Reversing and Increasing of 4th Depth. The anchor step of each of these flows has us holding Safety Energy Lock 2, harmonizing the physical while keeping our eyes toward the heavens giving us the energy we need.
