Waltraud Riegger-Krause was inspired to write “Jin Shin Jyutsu is an Art – Thoughts about our Nature and Healing” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 72, Spring 2011:
Inspired through being in class with Jill Marie Pasquinelli (Holden)
As soon as we start moving, a profound transformation will take place. Maybe we are not fighting any more, but surrendering into the unknown or even darkness, into the process of transformation. Nobody chooses to get sick; sickness brings change. One is not the same person anymore when one comes out of it. Most of the time we are much stronger.
There is a difference between curing and healing. Healing is seeing the wholeness. Do we see our own wholeness? Am I living in tune with nature? I can only be there for someone else as much as I am there for myself. We don’t have to fix something or change something or someone, but we can make room and space for all they are. If we can be as we are, they can be as they are – fulfill their own karma.
It’s about finding my own Rhythm. Is my own rhythm in tune with the rhythm of Nature, the rhythm of the elements, the seasons, the textures, the cosmic vibrations, the six-pointed star?
One student asked the question: “What do you say to someone who has been practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu for a long time and still gets cancer?”
Jill’s answer was: It comes to the question, does Jin Shin Jyutsu work? Yes it works! It doesn’t always work the way we want it to work. Our lessons, our assignments come to us the way and when they will come. It’s our karma. The question to this person should be, “What has changed in your life?” We don’t know what a soul has to experience and to go through. Many spiritual teachers say sickness is another experience to grow spiritually. We do not get asked how we want to learn our lessons. If we have expectation about Jin Shin Jyutsu, we are limiting ourselves.
Living Jin Shin Jyutsu also means looking at our lifestyle and making changes, living the dream we always wanted to live.
Mary said (paraphrased): If you hold your Ones for an hour a day, your life will change.
We can also do a Mediator Flow, working with the Nines and many more possibilities, depending on what the person needs.
Jill mentioned another guideline she heard from being in class with Mary, which I have also heard from other philosophers and naturopaths:
To support healing, first take two hours, where you do nothing, to shut down all of your senses. Then take two hours of quiet time for Self-Help, meditation, or a walk in silence.
Thank you, Waltraud.
Thank you, Jill.
Thank you, Mary.
Thank you, David.
Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
