Jill Holden presents an article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 48, Spring 2005 about the 3rd Depth:
The 5th Essence: 3rd Depth
In Jin Shin Jyutsu we have our impersonal universal Trinity consisting of Main Central, Supervisor, and Mediator; and our personal Trinity of Main Central, and Right and Left Supervisor. 3 is about relationship, and disease is the loss of relationship. Paracelsus defines disease as an intermingling of the 4 elements. The integration of the energetic body with the physical body is our health.
3rd Depth has a very close relationship to the Mediator, which is born at Safety Energy Lock 3. The Mediator gives us our wings, bringing rhythm and motion. 17, 18, 19 are the Safety Energy Locks located on the pathway of the Mediator, and they live in 3rd Depth. 3rd Depth, the source for this body, harmonizes the Mediator and brings about the movement and relationship between Heaven and Earth. It is simply a reflection of infinite Source of the 8th Depth – infinite rhythm, infinite harmony – the energy of Creation. Carl Jung said: “There is an unfolding of the One to a condition where it can be known – Unity becomes recognizable.”
3rd Depth is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter is associated with all gods of generosity and abundance. Jupiter brings us expansion, growth, and has to do with activity, movement, freedom, and relationship, which become blood, and blood goes everywhere. Blood Essence is what carries information in the body. Jupiter is about vision and perception, and holds the desire for meaning and understanding.
3rd Depth begins at Safety Energy Lock 16. 16 is the foundation of all human activity and helps us to move through life. 17, 18, 19 connect left to right and right to left. Our 16, 17, 18, 19 flow is the bridge which helps to harmonize and connect the Mediator with the Supervisor – the connecting link of the Trinity flow into the activating principle of the Mediator. This is a soothing, calming 3rd Depth flow. A preventer and healer of all critical conditions, this flow helps to prevent scary labels. This flow helps all stroke conditions (the sooner you can get to the person after a stroke, the better), clears the chest – for all breast projects, lymphedema and helps with post amputations. Safety Energy Lock 16 is our bridge from the invisible to the visible, our foundation for life and all of our undertakings. It’s our active intelligence. It helps us to break down existing forms for new ones. It renews. Harmonious music is nourishment for our emotional nature. Safety Energy Lock 17 represents harmony, Safety Energy Lock 18 melody, and Safety Energy Lock 19 rhythm. Safety Energy Lock 17 is our natural intelligence, our intuition. It collects our solar force energy that comes into our solar plexus so our nervous system can function. Safety Energy Lock 17 is the leader of relaxation in the body. Safety Energy Lock 18 is our cosmic consciousness and helps our personality. Safety Energy Lock 19 is our collective intelligence, which, when in harmony, brings us perfect balance. This flow connects our intellect with our emotions. The connection of mind-body is inherent in this flow.
