What is happening in the world of Jin Shin Jyutsu

A Brief Discussion of Some Relationships of Jin Shin Jyutsu to the Chakras, Page 1

Jed Schwartz presents: “A Brief Discussion of Some Relationships of Jin Shin Jyutsu to the Chakras” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:

***********

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way to understand all the connections that create the universe…that we are the “microcosmos” that relates to the “macrocosmos”. by knowing ourselves, we can then know the entire universe. Another illustration of this is the chakra system expressed in yogic philosophy. Just as the Kojiki is the Record of Ancient History of Japan, there exists in the Hindu religion the Upanishads [literally meaning “to sit near the (Truth)”], philosophical texts relating the ancient story of the world from northern India.

Within the Upanishads the explanation of the chakras is told as an expression of the creative life force and life purpose. Just as with Jin Shin Jyutsu, it is the story of our evolution from Spirit to matter, from heaven to earth, from the top of our head to the bottom of our spine and back. The yogis understood that we evolve through the seven worlds (chakras) to connect back to the Source, the Light, which is expressed as the goddess Jyoti (meaning “light”), residing at the top of our head. In Jin Shin Jyutsu, the creation of the human being is seen through the six depths, with our Seventh Depth expressed as the light of the sun that descends around us.

The Sanskrit word chakra means “wheel” or “psychic center”. To understand this system, we need to look at the energy that flows through the body to create these seven wheels of life. The energy that flows through the spine is called the kundalini and literally means “coiled”. This “corporeal energy” lies coiled at the base of the spine. It is envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent, and sometimes is referred to as Shakti (the divine feminine creative power). The kundalini resides in the sacrum in three and a half coils and has been described as a residual power of pure desire. This power of the Serpentine Goddess, lying coiled at the base of the spine, waits to become awakened so that she may rise upward on her journey home. This is similar to the story in the Kojiki of the Sun Goddess, Amaterasu, who hides in a cave after being tormented by her brother, taking light and life with her. She hides in the cave until cajoled to come out and then returns to the sky, to bring light back into the world:

When her brother, the storm-god Susanowa, ravaged the earth she retreated to a cave because he was so noisy. She closed the cave with a large boulder. Her disappearance deprived the world of light and life. Demons ruled the earth. The other gods used everything in their power to lure her out, but to no avail. Finally it was Uzume who succeeded. The laughter of the gods when they watched her comical and obscene dances aroused Amaterasu’s curiosity. When she emerged from her cave a streak of light escaped (a streak nowadays people call dawn). The goddess then saw her own brilliant reflection in a mirror which Uzume had hung in a nearby tree. When she drew closer for a better look, the gods grabbed her and pulled her out of the cave. She returned to the sky, and brought light back into the world.” – Kojiki

Why sadness and mourning can be so devastating and disharmonizing…

Marna Schauten-Kruijt, (The Netherlands), writes about: “Why sadness and mourning can be so devastating and disharmonizing…” in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 77, Summer 2012:

***********

When Suzy came to my practice for the first time I saw a beautiful lady of 62 years old. She tells me a little part of her story. And I tell her a little bit about how I work and I suggest beginning.

So she lies down and I feel her pulse and start with the 11/12 flow. Soon I feel the energy moving in high waves throughout her body and feel even a little bit seasick.  I also feel a lot of sadness. I talk with Suzy about my feelings, and she tells me about the great sudden loss of her son-in-law in September 2010. They are all very sad and shocked by what happened. During his work, this 36 year-old man fell down and died a couple of days later in the hospital. He literally fell out of their lives. He is very missed by Suzy’s daughter and Suzy. Since this happened Suzy feels very out of balance and very sad, and she does not really know how to go on from here.

After the 11/12 flow, the pulse and my intuition told me to do a Mediator Flow. While doing this nice comforting flow I think about the “why” of this flow and the connection with sadness and mourning. I think about sadness and the Second Depth and the Safety Energy Locks in the Second Depth. Suddenly I see the devastation and the imbalance as a result of sadness and mourning.

A lot of the Safety Energy Locks living in the Second Depth have a pretty direct relationship with the three levels: BUST LINE (#13 and #10), WAIST LINE (#9, #14, and #12), HIP LINE (#15 and #11). So sadness gives disharmony on all three main levels, and the devastation is complete. This insight made it clear to me why the Mediator came to me as a flow to help the harmony become more in balance on all three main levels – Bust Line, Waist Line and Hip Line. Also made clear to me is how devastating sadness can be because it disharmonizes all levels of being through the Safety Energy Locks of the Second Depth.

Of course, the first flow that came to me, the 11/12 Flow, is a Second Depth Flow. Also a connection is here with the Hip line and Waist line levels harmonizing through the #11 (with #15 and #2) and the #12 (with #14 and #9/23).

The insight of this treatment was felt as a present and a gift, and I really felt the need to share this experience with readers of this newsletter.

A few weeks later I gave a session to a man, and again I felt similar high waves going through his body and a lot of sadness. Now I recognized it as deep sadness and probably mourning. At the end of the session the man was crying, and we didn’t talk much. I only let him know that I perceived his sadness. Twenty minutes later he gave me a big hug without saying a word. Four days later he told me his story of loss and mourning.

Thank you, Marna.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

FATIGUE FLOW ADJUSTMENT (TRINITY), Part 3

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

***********

[Refer to pages 59 and 60, Text 1 for the Fatigue Flow Adjustment Pattern Sequence.]

  • The flow opens, utilizing the Mediator, holding Safety Energy Lock 3 with Hi 19, thus opening the door to No Attitude, thereby harmonizing negative thinking immediately, helping breathing (Hi 19)…
  • …calming the nervous system and enhancing intuition (Safety Energy Lock 17)…
  • Holding the middle finger helps Diaphragm Function Energy on the organ function level and also harmonizes the attitude of anger. As the mind relaxes and is freed from negativity, the flow returns to the base of the sternum. The diaphragm relaxes to help the exhale.
  • Jumper cabling Safety Energy Lock 22 helps us to be complete; happy and content wherever we are.
  • Safety Energy Lock 15 opens the gate to joy and laughter to know a harmonious physical existence.
  • Safety Energy Lock 1 is the prime mover, and
  • Safety Energy Lock 24 calms any chaos in my being,
  • Safety Energy Lock 7, the number of the 5th Depth, gives me a measure of my spiritual victory.
  • …Up the back to Safety Energy Lock 23 helps me unfold my destiny by releasing me from FEAR.
  • Safety Energy Lock 4, the window to consciousness, and/or 12, Thy will be done, thus harmonizes bust line and waist line,
  • and finally Safety Energy Lock 9, the end of the cycle, beginning of the new.
  • Then as a practitioner you change sides using MCVUHE again, with a hand on top of the head energizing the 5th and 6th Depths. The other hand between the 13s on the sternum helps to love thyself and connect with all the Surface Flows of Text 2 plus Mediator which crosses at the center 13 helping any mental/emotional states of imbalance as well as energizing the thymus gland to support the immune system.
  • …Then back to the base of the sternum again releasing the diaphragm,
  • …to the Pubic Bone and
  • …the Coccyx where 3rd Depth and 6th Depth live on the spine.
  • I move my hand up the spine to TV 10, Umbilicus Function Energy,
  • …and TV 5, Heart Function Energy 5th Depth where: May I rise into my spiritual inheritance.

All Depths are in this flow, and I notice it follows the order of utilizing Mediator, Supervisor and Main Central functions as in the 3 Methods of Correction, taking me back to the 7th Depth Light, back to Source.

When I finished my Fatigue Flow revitalization quickie (about an hour later – I must have dozed?), I feel calmer and my sore throat was better and I was able to flow with the remainder of the day. I felt as though I had come into a much deeper understanding of the Fatigue Flow from this simple experience and also a much deeper understanding of Myself. (Of course, you needn’t hold the quickie for an hour; just any time and as much as you are able.)

I am reminded of Eckhart Tolle’s words in Oneness with All Life, page 157:

Underneath the surface appearance, everything is not only connected with everything else, but also with the Source of all life out of which it came. Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it and let it be without imposing a word or mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.

Thank you, Jennifer.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

FATIGUE FLOW ADJUSTMENT (TRINITY), Part 2

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.

FATIGUE FLOW ADJUSTMENT (TRINITY), Part 1

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.

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

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.

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.

A RAY OF LIGHT, Part 4

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:

***********

The power of music to transform the soul, to alter our mood, to raise our spirits, to open our hearts cannot be disputed. Music massages the soul and connects to the 8th Depth, the depth of magic, of creation energy, of movement and sound. In other words music changes our movement, enables us to move in a different fashion. Music, sound and movement are all ways to express the inexpressible. Maybe this is what the ancients meant by the nectar of the gods or the elixir of life, the chemical secretions of the Endocrine System which are awakened by the vibration of sound.

Let us continue by defining “endocrine”. Even the definition of words leads us to a deeper understanding of this system. Endo and crinis are Greek words which mean “inside, within” and “to secrete”, respectively. Krinein also means “to separate, to distinguish”.”Endocrine” as an adjective means “secreting internally”. To my mind from Mary’s illustration of the MCVUHE/Endrocrine System, the endocrine glands are mediating sound/tone and light/color from the outside directly into the body, through chemical secretions released into the bloodstream. So the Main Central/Endocrine System is the connecting link to the SOURCE of all SOURCES, 8th Depth, through the light of 7th Depth into 6th Depth, our individual source, and the Endocrine System is the communication system from the outside to the inside of the body.

The endocrine glands are our energetic physicians. They have been called the “guardians of our health”. The endocrine glands store energy and regulate the distribution of energy to the whole body. The endocrine glands bridge and connect the organs and the nervous system and the nervous system and the fluids/water. They release chemicals or secretions directly into the bloodstream thereby affecting every cell in our body. These chemical messengers are called hormones. “Hormone” comes from a Greek word meaning impetus, impulse, to spur on, to urge on, in plain terms, “Get moving!” So our glands, through these hormones or chemical messengers, get life moving and promote all of our growth and development. They work together to balance and organize the whole body. They help in metabolizing our food, help in our sexual and reproductive functions and profoundly affect our moods. The Endocrine System governs the mystery of puberty, menopause and andropause. These hormones are so powerful that only a tiny amount can affect every cell in our body and cause profound changes. Hormones are the catalyst for life-promoting changes in our chemical make-up. They works slowly but powerfully. Although all cells have hormones, the major hormone producing glands are the pineal, mammillary, pituitary, thyroid, thymus, adrenals, pancreas and ovaries/testes. Our self-help Main Central jumper cables the area of each of these major endocrine glands.

When we look at the word “person” and examine its roots, we see that per is a prefix which means “by” or “through”, and son comes from the word “sonar”, which has to do with sound wave frequency. First comes sound then light at a higher frequency. In Spanish the word sonar means “to dream”. So a person is expressed through sound, or through dream. Then we add an “a” to the word, and we have “persona”, which means we have put a mask over the sound or the dream to present to the world.

Ever since I was a child, I knew that music and movement had the power to transform my mood. One of my favorite activities was to turn on the stereo and dance. That delight/passion followed me all the way through college and into my early adulthood, when I danced and performed. Now through the power of chanting/mudra I have come to a deeper understanding of the power of the vibration of the word. What are these endocrine glands doing? Are they the alchemical process, which transforms music and light through their secretions to send messages to the whole body through the bloodstream? Is this why music is such a powerful instrument for transformation? It changes our mood and affects the hormones or chemical messages which are released into our bloodstream. The hormones carry these musical notes, these feelings, to every cell in our body.

Yes, yes, yes, it is true – all those things we say about the MCVUHE. It is true, and the truth is simple. We just may not believe it the first time around, or for that matter for the first 20 years. It appears that learning and understanding happen on many layers and filter through our subconscious to our consciousness and to our kinesthetic experiential understanding, where we know something not just intellectually, not just in words, but we know it in the core of our being. We know in every cell of our body. That is the study and the learning I am interested in and that, as it turns out, has a lot to do with Endocrine System/Endocrine Glands and the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy.

My simple handwritten notes under the Main Central Flow on page 37, Text 1 – “helps everything, helps the Endocrine System and the glands, helps the 12 organ flows, and the 72,000 SBFE both left and right and the 72 trillion cells” are now resonating with a deep and profound truth.

Thank you, Anita.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

A RAY OF LIGHT, Part 3

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:

***********

You would think those simple and profound statements would have made me sit up and pay attention. Well, of course, they did but only for a moment and then on to the next page, and yes, “what does this flow help”, as if the MCVUHE wasn’t a show-stopper, a crowd pleaser, and couldn’t I have spent a little time delving into this Source of our Being, the Capital “B” Breath of Life, this higher fire element, this Will to Be, this Desire to Be. Okay, so it has taken me years to come full circle and start to pay attention to the simple power and meaning of the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy. Often we can absorb only so much at one time, and maybe I wasn’t ready for the deeper impact of this energy.

It was years later in my Jin Shin Jyutsu study, learning and teaching, that I knew I had to study the MCVUHE in relation to the Endocrine System. In fact every special topic class I come up with seems to be about the MCVUHE and one of its many facets. I had always been intrigued by Mary’s drawing of the Endocrine System and was particularly attracted to a quote from Joachim-Ernest Berendt, “Before we make music, music makes us.” Knowing that the best way to learn something is to teach it, I began a series of special topic classes on the Main Central and the Endocrine System, Before We Make Music, which sent me on the journey into understanding the vital importance of the Endocrine System and the endocrine glands to the overall health of our beings – mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

It was with the deepening of this awareness of the power of the MCVUHE, the “magic wand” which connects heaven to earth, our head to our tail that this Ray of God, this “magic wand” – this lightning rod, this lighthouse, this ray or beam of light – is profoundly relevant to the alchemical process of turning sound and light into matter. If the 8th Depth is movement/sound/music and the 7th Depth is Light, then is it through the Endocrine System that the vibrations of sound and light are transmuted?

What is this “alchemical process” which transforms sound and light into matter? And how is the Endocrine System involved? To begin with, let’s look at the word “alchemy”. Alchemy comes from an Arabic phrase “al-kimia”. “Kimia” comes from the root word “khem” which refers to the black fertile soil of the Nile delta as differentiated from the surrounding desert and is one of the roots from which the word “chemical” ultimately derives. Esoterically the word refers to the dark mystery of the birth of matter from which all life emanates. Alchemy is the process of transformation of nature, of all the rhythmic growth processes of nature. It is in the dark fertile soil of the delta where growth can happen, not in the desert. Alchemy happens on all levels. We in the Western world are often focused on the physical level, but alchemy starts on the energetic level, turning sound and light into matter, then on the material level turning base metals into gold and seeds into plants, into trees and into fruits, eggs into animals. Alchemy is one of the fundamental laws of life, laws of nature. Life is a process of transforming; life is a process of chemicals interacting and transmuting from one element to another. From the creation of the cosmos to the transformation of our souls into matter, we are in a process of transforming sound and light into matter. Through the chemicals of the endocrine glands, human beings are a part of that process.
