An Emergency Situation!

Karen Moore writes: “An Emergency Situation!” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 81, Summer 2013:

One day many years ago, I felt I was coming down with a cold. I had a strong herbal tincture that I squirted into my mouth. It hit the back of my throat, and my throat began to close down. I realized that the inhale was not coming. I only had an extremely long exhale. I felt sure there was an inhale coming at the end of this exhale, but no. I kept exhaling and realized I had to “do” something. My mind thought about the ones, but my instinct was to hold the ring finger. as soon as I did that, my throat opened and the inhale was right there. Of course, ring finger helps breathing! Mind was bypassed by instinct.

Many years later, I had a client on the treatment table who was experiencing a seizure. I immediately thought of the sevens for seizures. I went to the pads of her big toes. Her feet slipped out of my hands, and she was flailing on the table. I heard a rasping sound coming from her throat, and I realized from my own experience years before that her throat was closing down. I immediately and without thinking about it – actually, I did flash about how the instructors were studying down the hall and could be enlisted for help – but I “grabbed” both her ring fingers, and instantaneously her seizure stopped, her throat opened and her breathing became normal.

Whew! Fingers are very powerful. I looked at the Safety Energy Lock chart and found that the ring finger facilitates Safety Energy Lock 7 at the pad of the big toe.

Thank you, Karen.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
