Christine Anne continues to share her experience with Jin Shin Jyutsu as a vehicle for peace in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 40, Spring 2003:
Teaching this gentle Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help to entire families is one of my greatest joys. I see them not only help themselves, but they notice and help each other in increasingly loving ways as well. One couple that has a family business, awakens in the morning and applies the Main Central together before arising. They say, “The days just go better when we do.” Their teenage son shared, “We use Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy if someone is not feeling well or is sick. I feel confident that I have something I can do to help.” This sense of capability and confidence breeds esteem, respect and compassion that overcomes negative thoughts, feelings and actions for youth and adults alike.
Coping with serious wounds and emotional trauma after being attacked with her pet dog by a pitbull, a young woman, who is a self-help student, called me for Jin Shin Jyutsu support while I was at the Kato class in Honolulu last year. Others there were happy to help me create a simple Jin Shin Jyutsu plan to help physical and emotional healing, for both injured pet and owner. The power of community selflessly sharing was as healing as the Jin Shin Jyutsu practices we offered. In September, this young self-help student will attend her first basic 5-day seminar…and the cosmic harmonizing, artless art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy expands…
The simplicity of Jin Shin Jyutsu practice changes the world one person at a time. Receiving, practicing self-help or giving Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, softens, harmonizes and helps us toward being the breath, having “no” attitudes, “no” preferences. Inner peace is born and nurtured in this space. This peaceful presence is felt by others around us everywhere we go, as palpably felt as tension, anger, worry, resentment or fear. When we are at peace with ourselves, others find permission, example and support to be at peace also. There is no shame, guilt and doubt with accusations of not being good enough or unlovable, demanding how we should be or what we must do. Having loving self-acceptance (no striving – being our own testimony) allows us to be kinder, gentler, tolerant and less demanding of ourselves and then of others.
As the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy brings peace to the individual, the individual brings this peace to all their relationships including personal, family, community, and business. Each individual touched by and receiving this peace, in turn takes and shares this peace near and far. Thus, with gratitude, I practice and share the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy, the gentle vehicle of peace for individuals, families, communities, businesses, nations and the world.
Thank you, Christine.
