Anita Willoughby writes: “A RAY OF LIGHT – The Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 76, Spring 2012:


In ancient times and when we camp, we construct tents made of hide or fabric supported by poles to shield our bodies and protect us from the elements. In the forests, there are leafy upper branches which form a canopy supported by the trunks of trees to give cover to the life below. And on the level of space or heaven, we have poles of light, beams of light supporting and suspending the canopy of the sky above us separating heaven from earth. We have a heaven as our roof and sunbeams as our support beams. [No wonder they are called beams!] Is the structure of the energetic world columns of sunlight? is the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy (MCVUHE), which eventually manifests as our spine, an expression of one of those sunbeams? Is the Main Central the support beam, the tree trunk of our body? Is our MCVUHE a “mini” ray of light, a “mini” expression of one of those sunbeams? Our spine supports us from head to tail and separates “HEAVEN, the HEAD” from “EARTH…the pelvic girdle”. (A & Q TEXT Know Myself by Mary Burmeister) So maybe, just maybe, the residence of an individual ray of the sun is in our spine and this is why those Buddha Rays resonate in our psyches. We are the microcosm of the macrocosm.

Let us take a moment and look at the MCVUHE which is mentioned in Text 1 on page 3 as the first movement of the Trinity flow, “…our cosmic source – the First Commandment.” Then again on page 37, where there are 10 steps for abundance to jumper cable the MCVUHE, our Source of Life, our Battery of Life. Pages 38, 39 and 40 reveal the relationship between the Main Central/Spine and the fingers, and then in turn that relationship to the organs, the nervous system and the muscular system. The MCVUHE appears again on page 57 under the guise of the Third Method of Correction. Then in Text 2, page 41, 7th Depth LIGHT the 17th “INDIVIDUALIZED” BODY FUNCTION ENERGY, entitled “ANTERIOR-POSTERIOR VERTICAL HARMONY ENERGY” (Eternal Life Energy) opens our MCVUHE to the light to help us heal disharmonies in the spine, the chest, abdomen, back and hip areas. The subsequent pages 42 and 43, entitled “ALL COMBINED ENERGY – TIMING” reveal where the sixteen body function energy flows connect to the MCVUHE and ultimately to the Light of 7th Depth for nourishment. And then there is the special illustration of the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy/Endocrine System and its relationship to music and primordial tones.

In the beginning [yes, everything has an “in the beginning”] of my study of Jin Shin Jyutsu, I was often in a rush to know what projects each flow helped. “Yes, and what else does that flow help?” In my rush to know more and more, I found myself skipping over the deep and profound simplicity of this Art. I have scribbled in my notes on the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy, “helps everything, helps the Endocrine System and the glands, helps the 12 organ flows and the 72,000 Special Body Function Energy (SBFE) both left and right and the 72 trillion cells.” (But on that one I always asked, “Who was counting?”) And, of course, wasn’t one of the first things we learned about the MCVUHE to “never leave home without it, to do the self-help Main Central before we get out of bed every morning.”
