THE MAIN CENTRAL

Kelly Mount was inspired to write a poem, “The Main Central” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 72, Spring 2011:

*********

Have you ever journeyed to the garden of Eden

Matthew 16 verse 19 offers the keys to the kingdom.

Have you ever walked through the valley of the shadow of death

A primordial fire that begins and ends in the breath.

There is a divine presence in the honorific center of the  universe

It is a place where the mind, body and spirit traverse.

The wise say, “As above, so below. So below, as above.”

A gift from Creator to compassionate man of faith, hope and love.

As a spark from the sun or reflection of the moon ripple across the ocean

The Source of life energy is the expanding principle of motion.

The Main Central is a solar gateway where we access the Divine

A birth canal for the energy of the planets through the cervical spine.

What is bound in heaven shall be loosed on Earth

Uniting formless with form for our rebirth.

What is loosened on Earth shall be bound in heaven

A weaving princess that binds us as ONE, as brethren.

We are the microcosm of the macrocosm in this expansive Milky Way

The light of the heavens manifesting our vertebrae

From the sella turcica to solar plexus, umbilicus and below

Revitalizing, re-energizing and renewing our personal source energy flow.

Thank you, Kelly.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David

[Note: Sella turcica: A depression in the base of the skull where the pituitary gland is situated.]

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

I’m thinking about straight speaking…

DEEPER COMMUNICATION

“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
— Virginia Satir

How do you typically communicate? Is it through words, gestures, emotions, thoughts, desires, needs, truths, direct perception or intuition? Do you focus more on the other person or on yourself? Do you typically tell, ask or listen?

For a few days, set an intention to be aware of your communication styles and skills. After you’ve spent some time talking with someone, reflect on what your underlying motives were and what level of depth you reached. Write your insights in your journal. This exercise will help you become more aware and conscious of who you are and why you do what you do.

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
— Thomas Moore

“You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts.”
— Cochise

I’m thinking about walking boldly…

WE CAN’T ESCAPE

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
— Orison Swett Marden

We can’t escape problems and negativity. Escaping just brings denial and suppression – we continue to carry the problem with us. Ironically, it is our lack of acceptance and resistance to the problem that creates the pain. Resistance builds up an energy wall or block that, if not discharged, gets suppressed into the body. These blocks identify places where we have not enough understanding or love.

For health, we must work through what we seek to avoid. How do we do this? We can love parts of ourselves that we don’t like. We can seek the lessons we are being invited to learn through the problem. We can examine our beliefs and seek to see different perspectives and a bigger picture. As our perspectives grow, more of life makes sense and has meaning.

“The Lord is a good psychologist: he knows the way our minds run. Turmoil can be the Lord’s way of tapping us on the shoulder and saying, ‘Don’t forget me.'”

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an Art – Thoughts about our Nature and Healing, Part 2

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.

How?

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.

I’m thinking about the arrogance of ego…

RAISE YOUR AWARENESS

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.”
— Albert Einstein

Take awareness to new levels. Explore experiencing yourself in the act of being aware. Be aware of awareness itself. To do this, we need to go beyond our old mechanical patterns, compulsions and rejections. We need to uproot the arrogance of ego.

Higher awareness is conscious of spirit and form working together. We must be conscious and present within before we can tune in to the guidance of our soul. Develop awareness to hear the subtlest whispers of intuition through your thoughts, feelings and sensations.

“Most of us are in touch with our intuition whether we know it or not, but we’re usually in the habit of doubting or contradicting it so automatically that we don’t even know it has spoken.”
— Shakti Gawain

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an Art – Thoughts about our Nature and Healing, Part 1

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)

It was last October when Jill came to my hometown Isny in Germany to teach a Special Topic class about critical labels. She touched many aspects of our work with Jin Shin Jyutsu, which I want to share with you along with my own brainstorming.

When we talk about critical labels or illness in general, we come to the question, “Why did I get sick?” “Did I do anything wrong? And if so, what did I do wrong?”

We don’t know.

I don’t think it is because we are doing anything wrong. Life is a journey – spiritual, emotional, physical; unknown; unpredictable…

If we get sick or if any of our clients come with a label, the first thing we can do is to know that it is not about something that went wrong. I think sickness is part of our Being; it is a kind of cleaning, which our higher Nature has forced upon us. It is part of our becoming whole. Healing comes from wholeness.

So maybe we need, or our soul needs, this experience to become more whole. Obviously it forces us to take care of ourselves, to seek people who can help us and for treatments, which can be western medicine, naturopathic medicine, psychological help or Jin Shin Jyutsu. All of these can be necessary to save one’s life. We don’t know why western medicine works; we don’t know why Jin Shin Jyutsu works. It’s all alchemy.

Mary said: “If you have to take medication, say thank you, God, that there is medication for me to help me. Embrace it. Everything comes from God.”

We have the question: “What meaning does the sickness have for me?”

At the beginning we oftentimes do not know. We are so overwhelmed with the diagnosis and with organizing the next step. And we are in a way blind, because we are too much in it. At that stage it is good if we have some family member or close friend to support us.

It’s only afterwards that we will start having glimpses, because then we realize we are not coming back to the same life we had before we got sick.

Also, oftentimes before we get sick, we feel that something is not flowing anymore. There is something inside myself knocking at my unconsciousness and whispering: stop and look, something is missing, something needs to change. We know it but we don’t do anything – until it becomes physical. Now I can feel it; now everybody can see that I need a break to take care of myself. Only when our hidden emotional or spiritual sufferings show in the physical body does it become visible to us and others. And we are forced to act.

“You cannot solve the problem if you’re thinking the same way you were when you created it.”            ~ From “What Mary says…, p. 29 [attributed to Albert Einstein]
