The Weaving Princess Supports the Spirit to Manifest Limitless Life Power

Cristina Minamisawa shares her understanding of how “The Weaving Princess Supports the Spirit to Manifest Limitless Life Power” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 46, Fall 2004:


During the years I have been studying and practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu, I never really asked myself what was the meaning of the note on page 18, Text 1: how the 4 affects 13 and 10, the 12 affects 14 and 9, and 11 affects 15 and 2. But a time comes to all of us when we take a step forward, and an answer becomes a question.

Pondering the relationships of 4, 13 and 10, some ideas came up that I would like to share, and I am open to more insights if anyone feels inspired by the same issue.

4 is our window that lets air (breath) and Light (consciousness) enter our being. Different from the door, the function of a window is allowing us to receive the sunlight and air whenever it is opened. The landscape becomes part of our inner environment through the glass.

It is the Weaving Princess weaving our entire physical body, sending the correct amount of energy as needed to each part of our body. It is an ascending energy lock, living in the 4th Depth area in the head. It represents the four elements from which all physical matter is formed.

13 – Love Thy Enemy – is also a 4 (1+3) on another level. Because it is a 1 and 3, it also represents unity and movement of the trinity – the Main Central and Left and Right Supervisors. It is the Spirit, the Child, located in the area where the Bladder Flow (4th Depth) connects to the Main Central Flow. Here the lungs (the breath), the heart and the thymus live. For many traditions, the heart is where our embodied Spirit exists. The thymus influences the immune system and protects us against infections and diseases. So both Safety Energy Locks help us to unload our mental/emotional stress (bust line stress) that separates us from others and the world through breath and awareness. If our window (Safety Energy Lock 4) is dirty, we can hardly see our surroundings. and when we look through the dirt to the outside, all we will see is reality distorted by the dirt, leading us to interpret and respond to a distorted vision. So, if 4s are harmonious, they help the 13s to fulfill their nature.

The 4 and 13 have the breath (lungs) and consciousness (the Light) in common. They both relate to the 4th Depth. It is interesting to notice that one of the functions of the 4th Depth is to bridge the manifested body into the 6th Depth, purifying it in its way back into the energy level. In this relationship we see both the coming down of energy to become matter (Safety Energy Lock 4) and the return into the energy state (4th Depth).

The central 4 (in the circulation of the Main Central) is the location where part of the Left and Right Supervisor crosses to the opposite side; we can see here the commonality of the 13 and 4 in their relationship to the Trinity.

10 is “air, vehicle of the outpouring of limitless Life-Power,” vitality, our abundant warehouse, breath. Being the window, the 4 helps the 10 to fully be who it is meant to be by letting in abundant air.

The fifth thoracic vertebra lives in the 10 area, where the Heart Function Energy crosses the spine. When the 10 is happy with the help of a harmonized 4, our heart can BE, and Spirit can pour abundant life energy through us into the world.

Both 10 and 4 are ascending Safety Energy Locks helping us to purify ourselves in our way back to Spirit. 10 carries the quality of the 1 – the prime mover, the beginning, unity – and the 0 – the oval. So, as 10 purifies our previous experience, it moves us into a new cycle of consciousness (the 4s).

10 is a number living in the 2nd Depth, and in the Lumbar Circle, 2nd Depth supports the 4th Depth. If the 4th Depth is disharmonized, it can burden the 2nd Depth. Therefore, the 4s – located in the 4th Depth area of the head – maintain the unobstructed flow of the 2nd Depth.

Contemplating the richness of these relationships brings up in me profound gratitude for the simplicity of Jin Shin Jyutsu – one Safety Energy Lock and such a universe of meanings and interrelatedness!

Thank you, Cristina.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

I’m thinking about letting go…


“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”
— Lao Tzu

How do we take something away? As we cultivate higher awareness, we begin to see just how much we have added things that really aren’t there to our picture of reality. Our beliefs, concepts and emotions all add layers of meaning to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us only – it has no objective existence. For example, the word ‘mother’ has a complicated network of meaning for each of us.

Become aware of how your beliefs and emotions colour your perception of different events in your life. See if you can begin to step out of your fabrications to experience the truth and spaciousness of what is.

“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. … Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel

Energy Flow and the Five Attitudes, A Physio-Philosophical Pantomime

Erik Punaks, of Woodbridge, Suffolk, England, shares his November, 2000 pantomime Energy Flow and the Five Attitudes, A Physio-Philosophical Pantomime in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 47, Winter, 2005:


In the land of Joy and Levity,

The Country of Longevity,

The populace have all lost heart

For they’ve forgot the Cosmic Art.

Their health and happiness and youth

Decline without eternal truth.

Horrendous Labels stalk the lands.

Huge Attitudes with dire demands.

In every corner of chaos reigns,

Disharmony and fears and pain.

The government’s in disarray,

Erratic, fierce or gone away.

The Supervisor walks in dreams,

Main Central Office empty seems.

The elements just won’t relate

With no-one there to Mediate.

All’s in a state of grim convulse

No-one’s finger’s on the pulse.

Our gentle heroine, called Flow,

Is stuck, has nowhere she can go,

Afraid she’ll scatter or reverse

Her energy gets quickly worse.

A vicious gang of Attitudes

Have captured her with awful moods.

She wriggles, writhes, lies on the ground

Safety Energy Locks all bound.

Her depths are truly in despair,

No Mediator anywhere.

But rescue come in form distinct

Before her energy’s extinct –

A German with some wondrous skills

Derived from ancient texts not pills.

“I’ll save you, Flow, for I am able.

Behold my wondrous jumper cable!”

He feels her pulse, cries “Fears begone!”

You’ll know him well,

He’s called Hans Onn!

An hour of calculated touch,

Flow blushes, “Thank you, oh so much!”

The Attitudes just disappear –

No Anger, Sadness, Worry, Fear.

She’s so relieved she starts to cry

“Just hold your finger, dear, don’t Try!”

Now here’s the ending that you seek:

Flow’s having Hans Onn every week!

(Pantomime’s an ancient genre

Full of sly double entendre!)

Between these times, she helps herself –

Our Flow’s no longer on the shelf!

By holding fingers, look what’s done,

Our Flow is once more loads of FUN!

Her Problems have transmuted now

To Projects which she likes somehow!

There’s balance, harmony and peace,

All truly welcome the release

Of joy and geniality,

Of Effortless Reality.


Thank you, Erik.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

I’m thinking about the stillness…


“My greatest wealth is the deep stillness in which I strive and grow and win what the world cannot take from me with fire or sword.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

If our minds are always busy, they don’t get time to do basic maintenance – to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don’t periodically clear out space in our minds, there’s no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it’s only for 5 or 10 minutes.

“For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe.”
— Larry Eisenberg

Jin Shin Jyutsu for Your Animal Companion, Part 2

Adele Leas shares her experience with animals: “Jin Shin Jyutsu for Your Animal Companion”, in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 47, Winter, 2005:



Sharing Jin Shin Jyutsu with other species has expanded my understanding of Universal Energy in whole new ways. It is because of experiences like this morning that I have spent the last eight years focused on sharing Jin Shin Jyutsu with domesticated animals. This past August I published a book, Jin Shin Jyutsu© for Your Animal Companion, so that others might experience this joy firsthand. The book is based on Mary Burmeister’s beautiful Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help Books 1 and 2, which are said to contain the essence of the “Art of the Creator through Compassionate Man”.

The book is really a “picture book” with color diagrams of each step of the flows, showing the adaptations needed to easily work with different size species including: dogs, horses, cats, birds, rabbits, and hamsters. Kim Bremermann has done a beautiful job with the computer graphics and designing the pages to make them clear and accessible, with hands showing the location of each step.

If you follow the pictures, you do not need to face the lifelong challenge of knowing your right hand from your left! I have adapted the flows as needed for different species based on the relationship of the Safety Energy Locks and the prime numbers. The book also discusses attitudinal and physical differences needed to make the work accessible to our furry friends. This work has evolved over the past decade from my own practice and my animal classes taught through the U.S. and Europe. The bulk of the flow texts are translated by Matthias Roth into German and French, in addition to the English.

The book, originally designed as a workbook to accompany the classes, now stands on its own as an introduction to the work. It is possible to continue exploring through my classes, private sessions and phone consultations.

I now also have a website, where you can find out more about this work, as well as check out class schedules and print registration forms for classes and order forms for the book. The cost of the book is $25.00, plus shipping/handling, available through the Scottsdale office. While at the website, take the time to look at the photo gallery. I do not think you will have any trouble guessing which horse is Cali.

I find that animals are more in tune and more sensitive to touch than many humans are. Working with the animals can refine your touch and heighten your sensitivity. Intuitive, inter-species communication is a natural outcome when you understand the idea that you are not doing anything but rather “BE-ing with this BE-ing in this gentle and loving Art”. Learning to send this message from your heart through your hands is the primary focus of my classes, the website and the book. I believe you and your animals will find it deeply rewarding to share this journey.
