I’m thinking about strength and competence…


“I’d gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.”
— Joan Mills

Take a moment to stop and think about what you give to the people and life around you. Don’t think about what you’re not doing right. Look instead at all you do that is a blessing. Many of us continually beat ourselves up for not doing or being enough. But imagine for a moment that you are great just as you are. Feel the relief this brings! Now open to the possibility that this is not a daydream. It’s true! Believe it!

“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

Jennifer Holmes writes about: “FATIGUE FLOW ADJUSTMENT (TRINITY)” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:


I began to relax and let go, asking my Higher Self for help, and gently cupped my hands on top of my head, the quickie for the Fatigue Flow. I really felt the pulse of 5th Depth deep within my head, where 5th Depth lives, continuing down the body to form the spine. With no resistance, only acceptance that this is how it is NOW, I began to deepen my breathing and opened to the beautiful energy of the Main central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy. I am aware that within this energy is contained the Supervisors protecting and harmonizing both sides of my body and the activating principle of the Mediator Flow. (Trinity Energy and Mediator)

If we look at the FATIGUE FLOW Circulation Pattern we can see how it encircles the lungs. From this I know there is connection to enhancing the circulation around and in the lung area. Lung Function Energy is the prime mover for helping and building the body, the foundation of my life. When my lungs are functioning in harmony there is more oxygen available and all the other organ functions are supported. My 2nd Depth, which helps me balance mind, body and spirit and promotes common sense in my life, becomes stronger, Lung Function Energy being the inhale (cleaning) aspect on the organ function level.

Next I noticed how the Fatigue Flow Circulation Pattern flows up and down the arms and into the middle finger where Diaphragm Function Energy lives, supporting the core of my being.

I also noticed that some of the Circulation Pattern flows along the lymph pathways, and I am told this flow works on helping the lymphatic system, which cleans the body on the physical level. So I am beginning to understand that the Fatigue Flow is the BIG CLEANER flow helping me release toxins from foods, drugs, vaccinations and also toxins produced from my negative thinking.

From Margaret Matt’s Human Anatomy, page 41:

Surrounding the cells is a fluid that picks up colloids, particles, electrolytes and wastes that are unable to return to the blood. The lymph system, a system of tubes like the venous system, drains the fluids, which is called lymph. Lymph vessels unite to form larger and larger lymphatics and along the system form lymph nodes that strain and purify lymph and remove infectious organisms and bacteria before the lymph returns to the blood.

The Fatigue Flow also works on the autoimmune system and longstanding chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis or cancers – in fact, anything which has become deeply ingrained and needs cleaning from the body.

We are told Jiro Murai gave Mary this flow for modern man’s lifestyle, so it will also help accumulations from cell phone usage and exposure to electromagnetic fields. It also helps with tired, heavy bodies including pregnant women.

When I study pages 59 and 60 of Text 1, the Fatigue Flow Adjustment (Trinity), I see in my notes that you may take an hour to give this flow, staying on each step for 3 to 4 minutes. Then you can give the Mudras on page 47 as homework.

To be continued…

I’m thinking about solutions…


“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”
— Greg Anderson

What do you usually focus on: problems or solutions?

When our mind dwells on a problem, we stay stuck. Woe is me! But when we can shift to ask how we might achieve a solution to our problem, our subconscious mind, thinking and creativity move into gear. New possibilities open up.

Get in the habit of asking for solutions!

“Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?”
— Eric Allenbaugh

Jennifer Holmes writes about: “FATIGUE FLOW ADJUSTMENT (TRINITY)” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:


Mary tells us, “We may never know FATIGUE. Energy can never TIRE. It is our PERSONAL imbalance that causes FATIGUE.

Recently I experienced the result of my own imbalance and was able to experience the positive results of applying the Fatigue Flow quickie, page 60, Text 1, by cupping both hands on top of my head.

FOR QUICKIE revitalization of “run-down” energy:                                                                                 1. Place Right fingers at top center of right half of head.                                                                         2. Place Left fingers at top center of left half of head.

There are times in life when we go through periods of feeling unwell. Sometimes minor disharmonies, such as toothache, a  headache, stomachache, a sore ankle, etc., can be relatively easy to harmonize. I apply my self-help jumper cables or receive sessions from a practitioner. I may visit the dentist, doctor, naturopath or whichever professional I choose to help me. I may make some changes in diet, lifestyle and be forced to identify a negative belief pattern which has helped me to create this disharmony. Gradually with time my disharmony reduces and I feel healed in body and spirit.

Then there are times when I feel more out of kilt and no matter how much jumper cabling I use, how many early nights I go to bed, my disharmony continues. I don’t sleep well and toss and turn. I realize all is not well but cannot really understand quite why. I go through the day feeling grumpy and stressed. My limbs feel stiff and sore. I feel disconnected from Source.

Eckhart Tolle says in Oneness with All Life, page 106:

Stress always diminishes both the quality and effectiveness of what you do under its influence. There is also a strong link between stress and negative emotions, such as anxiety and anger. Stress is also toxic to the body. Unlike stress, enthusiasm has a high energy frequency and so resonates with the creative power of the universe. This is why Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nothing great has ever been achieved without enthusiasm.”

One afternoon I received a Jin Shin Jyutsu session from a fellow practitioner, thinking that I would feel restored and rejuvenated. To my surprise, I began to feel more unwell. My nose and eyes watered, my throat hurt, and I began sneezing. Ah ha! I realized my Kidney Function Energy was low, and maybe I was coming down with a cold. Then in the wonderful state of receiving jumper cable energy, when I began to reconnect with my 6th Depth, I had the clear realization my 4th Depth, which is dis-harmonized by fear, was needing help.

I made the decision to lie down, take the phone off the hook, tell my family I was unavailable and quietly tuned into my body. I noticed my breathing was not flowing easily, my body felt really stiff and achy. I observed my thoughts. I was feeling fatigued.

Until this point I had been too busy in my jumbled thoughts, trying to get everything done before I departed on holiday, to really listen to my body.

I’m thinking about beginning and ending…


“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes.”
— Napoleon Hill

The law of karma is the law of cause and effect. It works unavoidably when there is no consciousness — when we are not present in the moment. When there is no consciousness, the past creates the future.

The law of Love supersedes the law of karma. It intervenes in the process by focusing in the present. In fact, one could say that Love is being fully present. When anything is initiated in Love in the present, the future of that reality will be purposeful, meaningful, loving and powerful.

“He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw when he may have forgotten its cause.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“In my beginning is my end.”
— T.S. Eliot

Moving into the Great Unknown: A Life in Transition, Part 2

Jill Pasquinelli writes: “Moving into the Great Unknown: A Life in Transition” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:


The family has been looking into alternative treatments. Henry’s four children, his wife, and many friends have dedicated themselves to the task of finding a cure, or at least some kind of treatment to extend his life for as much time as possible. He is already receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu, acupuncture and physical therapy, keeping him alive and allowing some quality of life. They also found a new treatment which is a chicken virus that is being used in Israel and in the U.S., but they’re still doing trials on it. There have been some remarkable recoveries for some people with metastatic bladder cancer. Henry and his wife actually talked to one person on the phone from the Bay Area who made a recovery.

The doctors are now pushing a new chemotherapy…one that shows better results from testing his tumors. The tumors are more responsive. However, there’s some question as to whether Henry is strong enough for another round of chemotherapy. This cancer is aggressive and moving fast, so they want to do it as soon as possible.

This could be a life or death decision. What’s going to give the better outcome? A very well know acupuncturist and herbalist from this area said this is a time of limiting regret. Which decision will be the right one with the desired result? Will there be any regrets in choosing one or the other? Which one might grant the time Henry needs?

It’s “let’s make a deal” time. What kind of deal can he strike with God? What kind of bargain can he make? The irony is that Henry built his career on bargaining and winning. Part of this equation is regret management, not looking back and thinking if only… There’s no guarantee, no right answer, except maybe turning to that deeper instinct and knowing that guided Henry through his life.

As I watch and witness this process, it’s so clear to me that this is Henry’s journey, and only his. There is no better or wrong decision to be made, in fact I think the real thing at hand here is much bigger than any of us can imagine, the bigger picture of one’s destiny.

This is another aspect of 3rd Depth where decision making and mystery lie together as part of the soul’s journey, propelling us forward into unknown territory. We’re making our path as we go along.

Henry picks the new chemotherapy. It seems the more secure choice that comes with doctors, approval, and studies behind it. The picture has the illusion of certainty or at least of buying time.

The family is happy about his choice. Hope is alive and wedding bells are ringing.

Henry will also begin the chicken virus a week after chemotherapy, starting with a lower dose.

I can see Henry surrender to some innate intelligence, some inner voice that is guiding him and directing him now. That inner knowing is his alone.

I watch him take in the miracles of life around him, hearing a song being sung for him, feeling the sun on his hand, coming alive as friends and family come up to talk to him while at the same time giving each and every one in the family an order, a direction or chore to do on his behalf. I have to laugh as I think it takes a village to attend to Henry. He’s just so Henry and will be to the end.

I think that we die as we have lived, true to ourselves in being who we truly are with all of our gifts and limitations.

Thank you, Jill.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings

I’m thinking about joy…


“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa

Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.

In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.

“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

Moving into the Great Unknown: A Life in Transition, Part 1

Jill Pasquinelli writes: “Moving into the Great Unknown: A Life in Transition” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:


Transition has to do with the unknown. In every transition we are always on the bridge in the process of leaving the old before coming into the new, passing through the gates into a new territory. What am I entering into? How do I handle uncertainty? This is the story of a life in transition. It’s the embodiment of 9, endings and beginnings, completion, letting go, nothing and everything, change and death. It has helped me to further understand the meaning of 9 and how it translates in life.

The husband of a longtime client has been diagnosed with late stage bladder cancer and is in the process of dying. His name is Henry.

Henry has been a powerful man in his life, he’s very prominent in his community, made millions, is always at the helm navigating forward into the future of possibilities seemingly without limitation. Growing a family, expanding a community, creating an empire, he was a very successful man.

I have watched over the years and find myself reflective now as I witness the current disintegration of this larger than life figure, now 82 years old, grapple with something not in his control. No matter how well-built and carried out, lives the dream that becomes manifest, it’s also a part of it’s nature to dissolve, so there’s space for a new dream to incubate and be born…the embodiment of 3rd Depth, of a life well lived…the movement of Spring seeking limitless opportunities, growth and expansion, metamorphosis and creation, the dreams of life. We’re constantly growing ourselves, recreating who we are in every given moment and at the same time dying to that which no longer belongs or is a part of us. This beautiful and brutal gift we have all in the same breath!

To me this is the ultimate expression of 9 and how the beginnings and endings are but two brief events that bookend the life’s journey.

This giant of a man, diminishing in body, the heaviness of fatigue evident as he struggles to walk, his spirit remains strong even as the body is failing.

One of his sons is getting married in August, so everyone is orienting themselves around the goal of Henry making it to the wedding. It’s such a poignant and momentous time, not without irony – one life passage beginning in a union, the other life ending – hoping for just one more celebration, one last party, just this last dance.

The fact is that the chemotherapy that Henry has been given for the last month has not been successful. The tumors have grown, he’s having difficulty breathing, and the pain is unbearable.

To be continued…

I’m thinking about changing my mind…


“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear … as it is, infinite.”
— William Blake

When we stop and pay attention to ourselves, we begin to see clearly the habits and patterns that have kept us asleep and confused and misled for so long. With awareness, we can choose to shift from the selfish and narrow outlook of our personality to the all-embracing generosity of our soul, simply by changing our perspective.

Change your mind and you’ll change your world.

“You watch your mind to see who you are not. I watch my mind to gain a sense of its content, which has always been my pain. As I watch it, I get a sense of its impermanence. Thoughts come and go as part of a process. I see how content dissolves into process and begin to see the patterns in the process. Realizing it isn’t MY suffering, MY pain, it becomes THE pain. I’ve gone from the tiny, the small, and the individual to the universal. I feel OUR pain. When we do, we go from fear to compassion. Fear is MY pain, compassion is THE pain.”
— Stephen Levine

One Breath, one Pulse, one Heart…in Communion with Source

Marta Bonany Peris writes: “One Breath, one Pulse, one Heart…in Communion with Source” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 76, Spring 2012:


On October 22nd and 23rd, 2011, we celebrated a two-day Jin Shin Jyutsu event in Canals, a little town of around 14,000 people, near Valencia, Spain. We gave free Jin Shin Jyutsu session for all who wanted to come. Most of these people had never heard about Jin Shin Jyutsu before that moment. A group of ten Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners from Canals, Alcudia, Ibi, Barcelona, Granada, Venezuela and Brazil started an “energy movement” to help ourselves and help others, focusing on working with love and generosity by telling the Universe about Jin Shin Jyutsu. “We are here! Here are our hands…”

We worked together, we utilized the same flow, starting and ending the flow and following each step at the same time…all of us being part of one body, one breath, one pulse, one energy…all of us dancing the same music, the melody of one heart.

The local authorities allowed us to hold this event in City Hall. Over the two-day period, the practitioners gave of their time and love eight hours per day; 242 people received a Jin Shin Jyutsu session. Food was collected for a local NGO – 360 kilos – donated by the grateful people who received sessions. These people felt the calm and heavenly happiness of Jin Shin Jyutsu…most of them stood up and just said, “I’ve been in Heaven, thank you.”

We had one practitioner greet people at the entrance, and one bed was free all the time without our knowing why – we just remembered that Mary was with us all the time.

What Jiro Murai and Mary began is so big that it can’t be hidden: it can’t be stolen. What we know and live must be shared; this is the best present we can offer on our own and to the people in our own communities. This is a wonderful seed of love and happiness that is the beginning of a change for all of us, for our families, friends and beyond.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Mary, for your whole life and lifework and for accepting Jiro Murai’s present.

On behalf of our Jin Shin Jyutsu community, I wish to thank David Burmeister, carlos Gutterres, Mati Gramaje, Manolo Micó, Tais Schebela, Edson Bernd, Isabel Ribelles, Merçe Sisternes, Tere Mira, Mariola Julve, Olgalicia Celis, Manolo Teruel, M Carmen Sánchez, Andrés Galán, Eduardo Blasco, Ricardo Martínez, Maria Galán Jaime Yagüe, Cándido Argent and Marta Argent.

Thank you, Marta.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.
