Thumb Function Energy and Little Finger Energy, Part 2

Waltraud Riegger-Krause shares about THUMB FUNCTION ENERGY AND LITTLE FINGER FUNCTION ENERGY in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 59, Winter 2008:


Thumb Function Energy and Little Finger Energy


The short sequence of holding the 3/11 with the same side 18 will help to harmonize the two 2nd Depth functions:

11 – letting go – is part of the Large Intestine Function Flow pattern and 18 – helping the breath from head to toes – is part of the Lung Function Flow pattern. I have also in my notes from Mary: 3 clears the lungs, and 18 clears the digestive. So it doesn’t matter which way we turn, it will always help both 2nd Depth functions.

Before I go deeper into Little Finger Function Energy, I will just look at both and what relationships come  up. Lung and Heart are both chest flows which deal with fire energy. Fire, being the pure flame of spirit, gives us vitality and opens us up to Spirit, Second Depth, little breath receiving BIG BREATH OF LIFE and Fifth depth, little blood receiving BIG BLOOD OF LIFE. They both open the chest.

Large Intestine and Small Intestine are both finger flows. They deal with energy of renewing and reproduction. By receiving the fire vitality of their partner flow, they help create the earth for renewing. They open the arms and shoulders, so we can embrace life as it is. They are also both connected in the 13 Flow, as well as the 6th Depth Umbilicus Flow. The 13 Flow also works with the Main Central, another 6th Depth Function.

On another level, the thumb side of the arm belongs to the descending energy, and the little finger side of the arm belongs to the ascending energy. So the respective flows will then support this energy. So the Thumb Function Energy will support the descending and the Little Finger Function Energy will support the ascending energy.

If I look at thumb and little finger, I think also of the Mediator Flow. In the flow route of the Mediator, the energy goes first through the same side little finger and then through the other side thumb. By holding the sequence for the Thumb Function Energy we will help the opposite Mediator, and by holding the Little Finger Function Energy sequence we will help the same side Mediator Flow.

Lung and Large Intestine Flows are both surface flows. Heart and Small Intestine Flows are both deep flows. Big Breath is 6th Depth and Big Blood is 3rd Depth, they are both middle flows. So again we can clear all three dimensions of man with these simple flows on pages 56 and 57 in Text 2.

Thank you, Waltraud.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
