Milt Lee , Organizer and Practitioner – Rapid City, South Dakota writes about The Year of the One’s in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 41, Summer 2003.
After about 6 months I noticed that my nose wasn’t going crazy. I also noticed that it didn’t start to gush when I would have a sip of wine. Now I know that I probably shouldn’t talk about alcohol but it’s true. For years I hadn’t been able to even have a sip of wine at dinner, but I like to have a drink now and then, and now I could. Actually this was just an outcome of my whole body becoming stronger.
People started to notice a change. They said that I was clearer, brighter – that I looked like a new person, and I noticed it, too. I needed less sleep, I recovered from work faster, I was taking about 1/2 of the asthma medicine than I had before, and some days I forgot about it altogether.
During this time, I tried to get a regular treatment once a week. For me the best treatments were the Reversing and Increasing of the Depths. They would always “send me far away”, and my pulses would all end up silky.
Finally, I finished the year – a full year of holding my knees an hour a day. It was much more of a challenge than I thought it would be. There were times when I forgot till 11 or 12 at night. Then I would sit there holding my knees, falling asleep, but holding them. During the year, I didn’t really change anything else in my life. I didn’t do any additional exercise and wasn’t very good with my diet. So anything that happened was strictly Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy. By the end, I could feel the energy moving around my body. I could feel things release that I’ve never felt before, and the paths that Jiro Murai talked about are much more real to me than before. Now, if I hold the first step of the Gall Bladder Flow, I feel the energy release in my lower back.
So the burning question is – did all of my projects go away? The answer is…No. I still have a human body, and I still go through the grit and grime of daily living. However, my nose is much, much better; the allergies are mostly gone. The same is true for the asthma. I don’t have any asthma attacks, or even rarely get tight. When I do, I can drink a glass of water or hold my breath, and the tightness goes away immediately. I still can’t smell very much, but I can breathe through the night, and when I wake up, my teeth aren’t sore from mouth breathing.
Would I recommend holding your one’s? I think I would. It’s a journey of self-exploration. You will learn so much about yourself, and you will feel things you’ve never felt before. It’s not easy, especially when the storms of energy are raging, but it’s worth it. I’ve decided to do the mudra’s every day for this next year, and already I’m noticing that the fingers are so much more powerful than I ever realized. Finally, I would say that the One’s truly are the Prime Mover, and if you want to move, then this is the way to do it..
Thank you, Milt.
