The Depth and the Spiralling Circle

3rd Depth

As the energy denses down, it forms the Third Depth, which we call the activating principle. It is connected to the power that enables us to transform the potential that we bring into life into action. It helps us to make the right decision so we can expand out into life and make our experiences and grow. It is the planet Jupiter that is connected to Third Depth and to the ability to act and learn. Third depth is like the young energy that we experience in springtime, the adventurer in us that wants to enjoy the colors of life. It is connected with creativity, vibration and sound. Thoughts and emotions are different vibrations, and it is in the Third Depth where we get attached to thoughts and emotions, and they become attitudes. Here in this Depth we bind things, and we loosen them again. We make decisions for our actions and yet it is also the connection to our intuition. The energetic body is the Lower Mental Body, and this has to do with “my will”, versus the higher will which is more connected to the 4th Depth. This 3rd Depth gives us the ability to make decisions, but also to change our decisions and to change our action in life to a more harmonized one. We do not have to be slaves to our attitudes; we can make a decision. Third Depth is connected to the BLOOD ESSENCE, which binds the soul as Mary said, “Every drop of blood contains a picture of the entire past and prepares the future. Blood registers every thought and every emotion.” On the physical level the Liver and Gallbladder are formed in the Third Depth.

2nd Depth

In the Second Depth the Big Breath Essence of the 6th Depth becomes our personal breath, which we receive through the Lung Function Energy. The breath connects all dimensions in man – Spirit, mind and body – all three belong together. Through the breath we are connecting to the Cosmic Energy as well as to all beings in this world. We are all breathing the same air. Here we have planet Venus, which helps us to feel in harmony with ourselves and with others and gives us the ability to see the beauty and the good things in life. Second Depth represents the Emotional Body, Harmony and Rhythm. So it keeps our thoughts and emotions in harmony. On the physical level the Lung and Large Intestine Function Energy is formed in the Second Depth.

The Depth and the Spiralling Circle

5th Depth

It is in the 6th Depth where the primordial fire and the spark of life begin to glow. This fire touches our heart in the Fifth Depth. It becomes our smaller fire of the heart and helps us to become that wonderful human being that we are, without trying to’s, without pretense, being true to our Self. This Depth is related to the Spiritual Body, which gives us the ability to develop spiritually and become who we truly are.

4th Depth

The energy continues to dense down and forms the 4th Depth. This is the Depth that is connected to our potential and to everything that we bring into life from our ancestors. Here our entire life path is imprinted – every experience that is necessary for us, from birth to death. As Mary said, the 4th Depth is the controller of human destiny; it is the most important Depth to harmonize our lifestyle. It is related to the Higher Mental Body, the cosmic intelligence, which enables us to develop wisdom. “Wisdom comes from inside out, whereas knowledge comes from outside in.”…is one of Mary’s quotes.

Oftentimes, we don’t live according to our inner abilities, but we fulfil the dream of our parents, or we follow the ideals of our friends. We don’t trust our own potential, we don’t see the gifts that creation gave us, and sometimes we think we are not good enough, which only comes from fear. 4th Depth is connected with the power that brings us in touch with our inner wisdom and with our intuition, to recognize our goal in life and to harmonize our lifestyle if we follow the “wrong path”. And sometimes we don’t always know our path.

Then it looks like it comes from outside, that we are thrown into a situation or we get sick, so we understand that we have to change something. Those lessons are hard in that moment and often only later do we understand why it has come that way. And then we will be at peace with it. This is all connected to the energy that becomes Kidney and Bladder Function Energy.

The Depth and the Spiralling Circle

From 9th Depth to 7th Depth

Out of NO THING – what we call 9th Depth, formless itself and yet carrying the whole potential, the ALL… Out of the NO THING comes the 8th Depth, what we call the “dot” or the origin of all creation. Mary also called it “Creator” or the first thought or word of God for creation. The original ground of all being, the number 8 of the 8th Depth symbolizes the rhythmic movement from above to below and from below to above, without beginning and without ending. The infinite beauty, peace and strength of the first thought for creation shall come down and express itself into the world. And everything that lives in the world will be connected with above, the original Source, from which all life force is descending. It creates a movement, a vibration, a rhythm. Light appears and gives rise to a cosmic order which is reflected in all that is created; in the composition of the atoms, in the DNA, in the orbit of the planets – everywhere we have the same order of harmony. It is the universal, spiritual light, which is symbolized by the number seven, the 7th Depth. Seven means victory, perfect life power. In the divine light, everything is perfect. On the seventh day, creation was perfect. The light gives spark for our individual life. It is expressed by the sun. Without sun – light – no life would be possible. It is the light in the food that gives us nourishment. And as some scientists have found, there is light in each cell of the human body.

6th Depth is Born

Out of the universal light of the 7th Depth, the individual light of the soul is born. This is what we call 6th Depth in Jin Shin Jyutsu. It is the blueprint or matrix of our personalized life, it is the “I AM”. All information of our life from the unmanifested invisible to the manifested physical body is within the 6th Depth. It is represented by the moon, which possesses no light of its own but is reflecting the light of the sun like a mirror. The more and the clearer the light of Seventh Depth that can enter into the Sixth Depth, the more radiant is our being. Through our personality we are able to allow the divine to shine through us, each one in their individual way. Each human being is a unique expression of the 8th Depth.

The Sixth Depth is the beginning of the energy field of the individual being. It contains the Fifth, Fourth, Third, Second and First Depths. I imagine that the energy comes down, similar to a spiral nebula and becomes denser and denser to form the body.

The Depth and the Spiralling Circle

The universe is the infinite expression of the ONE POWER, which is the cause of all Life. This ONE POWER expresses itself in different forms and laws. If we are in tune with these laws, then we are in rhythm with nature. However, it is our lifestyle that oftentimes forces us to neglect those cosmic laws. For example, if we don’t slow down our activities in wintertime and rest a bit more, like nature demonstrates to us (plants disappear and live in their roots only, animals slow down and sleep), then we shouldn’t be surprised that we are more fatigued and exhausted in spring. Paracelsus said: “The greatest healing power is to be in harmony with the universal rhythm.

Our consciousness about the rhythms of nature has increased, but at the same time we create a lifestyle which draws us away from living according to the laws of nature. Oftentimes it is in our own hands to make a necessary change in our lifestyle and bring about a bigger change in our life. With the daily self-help of Jin Shin Jyutsu, we have the possibility to see more clearly where we are stuck, and finally change the habits of our daily life.

Mary talks about the different aspects of the universal powers, which manifest from the highest cosmic dimension to the individual human life as Depth. Within each Depth we find several aspects and dimensions of life at the same time. There are the Planets, the Astrological Signs, the Seasons, the Organs and the different body layers of man which are all expressed as Depth. The same universal power expresses itself as different vibrations, coming from the depth of the universe into the depth of Life and the individual Being. The Chinese Philosopher Lao Tse describes the origin of the creation in his words: “Out of non-being comes being. Out of the nameless comes all that is named in heaven and earth. As ever empty, we may perceive its inner essence, as ever manifest, we may realize its mystery. However diverse, all flow from the same SOURCE. Within the original mystery is a deeper mystery, and the gate opens again and again.” These are the “worlds within worlds”, as Mary called it.

The Seasons, Part 2

From The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, Volume 1, Number 3,,,

Wayne Hackett Explores Fourth Depth & Winter with Kim Lathrop, contninued:

Kim: Will you please speak to us about Fourth Depth and Winter?

Wayne: So we’ve moved from the life force, Key (Third Depth), through the desire to be (Fifth Depth), to be what? To be reasonable, to be common sense, to have the ability to attain and fulfill and complete ourselves (Number 9). Then we move into the Water element, Fourth Depth, having the ability to blend or balance, which is wintertime. Also, seasonally, we progress through Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. Now at the Fourth Depth we go into balance. Let’s keep these two states of being, physical and nonphysical, in balance. When it comes time again, after we move through the First Depth, which is the spleen’s ability to bring sunshine to all the seasons, we move into springtime again.

Third Depth. We’re simply moving in that circle through the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, bringing sunshine into life in all of its seasons, so that we can continue, and that happens with every breath.

So there’s that clockwise motion of the circle and within the circle the star as the order of creation: Third Depth, Second Depth, First Depth, Fifth Depth, Fourth Depth, Sixth Depth, Third Depth. All of those relationships are lying on top of each other. They interface between the various orders and principles at play, moving in and out of each other. Sometimes it’s the order of the elements, sometimes it’s the order of the seasons, sometimes it’s the creative process, sometimes it’s the process by which the jumper cable simply moves through the First Depth, Second Depth, Third Depth, Fourth Depth, Fifth Depth, in and out of the body. To know all of these relationships simultaneously is a lot of fun. We’re moving through the seasons of life.

Kim: On a practical level, what happens if our Fourth Depth is not in harmony during the Winter? What might we feel or have going on in our bodies or lives?

Wayne: If we put seasons on the lumbar circle, then we have Spring energizing Fall, Fall energizing Summer, Summer energizing Winter, Winter energizing the hottest part of all the seasons. If we get out of seasonal balance, we may have Winter, Fourth Depth, moving back up into Summer, Fifth Depth. What we get is an imbalance of hot and cold. The way the body expresses that is to have a cold. So at the level of energizers, we’re not allowing the Summer to energize the Winter, or Fifth Depth to come into Fourth Depth, or warmth into cold.

On the other side, maybe we overdid ourselves, too much First Depth worry and preoccupation about life so that the spleen becomes a disharmonizer and doesn’t have that sunshine, that solar energy available for the Winter. On both sides of wintertime, we have warmth when we stay in balance. Thus we don’t get a cold. So we can give ourselves a First and/or Fifth Depth Flow.

Thank you, Wayne.

Thank you, Kim.

The Seasons

From The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, Volume 1, Number 3,,,

Wayne Hackett Explores Fourth Depth & Winter with Kim Lathrop:

Kim: Will you please speak to us about Fourth Depth and Winter?

Wayne: A picture that comes to me is how life at the visible level seems to have disappeared during wintertime (the plant re-seeds into the earth, hibernation), tempting us to perceive this as an ending instead of a transformation. Wintertime for us, as human beings, is the expression of that state during which the human form, in a sense, leaves its expression to become pure spirit again.

So Fourth Depth, as that traditional bridge  between matter and spirit, has a balancing action. Remember, Fourth Depth is the Number 6 which is the law and nature’s way of moving us to balance. And Mercury, the ruling planet of the Fourth Depth is saying, “I’m going to communicate with you”. Now we’re going from the man state back to the unman state, or from the material to the spiritual. So that action is simply a balancing time during which our dimensions, whether physical or spiritual, harmonize by changing form.

Neptune and Pluto, higher octaves of Mercury in the Fourth Depth, symbolize transformation – undeniable change. Man’s worldly understanding of this concept is that we’re born to die. We perceive that process, maybe not in its fullness, as a transformation. So these Plutonic events are inevitable occurrences that bring us into balance so that Mercury, communicating between our heavenly and earthly states, is a right action of balance. Thus the wintertime is simply that transformation. It is that which allows us to return to our pure essence so the cycle can begin again.

To further understand Fourth Depth and Winter, take the five-pointed star that’s the Order of Creation, the star in the thoracic vertebrae, and place on it the elements. We enter the Third Depth as the Sixth Depth manifests into the material body. Third Depth is Key or Chi, the life energy. Then moving clockwise is Fifth Depth, which is Fire: our desire to be. We move from the life force into its desire to be, its creativity, its impulse. Next we move into the Second Depth, which is the Air element having the ability to have reason or common sense.

As an aside, Second Depth is common sense and logic. It’s practicality. We tend to go so intellectually into reason and logic, thinking, philosophizing, and mentally analyzing, that we forget that this common sense is our gift. We don’t have to think about it. It is to know. Second Depth is symbolized by the Number 9, and 9 is to know, K-N-O-W. In our knowingness is our common sense. We don’t have to figure it out by analyzing it.

To be continued…

Thank you, Wayne.

Thank you, Kim.

What is a Depth?

Wayne Hackett, one of the Jin Shin Jyutsu instructors, was asked what is a Depth? He responded by saying that “a Depth is a dimension of life, which develops as we go. It is a state of our being.”

When Rima Lurie, a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner from Gold Hill, CO, was asked what is a Depth, she said, “Responding to the question about how I would explain the Depths in Jin Shin Jyutsu, I immediately see a vast body of water. Visualizing as if from within the water, and from the side, I am aware of sunlight hitting the surface, the brilliant upper layers becoming shadowed in increasing graduations downward. Perception of sound waves and temperature varies with distance from the surface, and distinct life-like forms characterize the realms. Without rigid boundaries, unique qualities and layers are evident, each being essential to the existence of the whole. Yet, because of fluidity and overlap among the layers, currents, changes, and circumstances in any one place have ramifications everywhere. A water spider makes subtle rippling waves. A trout rising from the depths catches a fly near the surface, sinks…the ripples spread. Wind strengthens, creating waves; in turn, all the Depths respond.”

Thank you, Mary.

The 9th Depth

9th Depth qualities/relationships are:

non-existent…

9th Depth is “No-Thing”

9th Depth is not nothing. It is “No-Thing” It is nothingness; space.

9th Depth No-Thing is expressing itself as 8th Depth Infinite Truth (IT) – The Infinite Truth that “We are ONE, the Cosmos itself.” From this ONENESS of 8th Depth Infinite Truth energy slows down or denses down into limitless elements of 7th Depth Infinite Self (IS). Here we see our 7th Depth Infinite Self as a perfect microcosm (7th Depth IS) of the macrocosm (8th Depth IT).

7th Depth Infinite Self denses down as 6th Depth Impersonal Self (IS), Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy continuing to move into the other depths of 5th Depth, 4th Depth, 3rd Depth, 2nd Depth, 1st Depth.

KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS.

OR:

Once again, I like to meander through my mind and envision the depths. It seems to me that from No-Thing (9th) Depth, comes the first manifestation of pure energy/no-thing/chaos and that is vibration (music and movement) in 8th Depth. (Some call 8th Depth “God” or “Big Bang”).

As energy becomes more dense, and from 8th Depth music/movement comes Light, 7th Depth. I imagine continual showers of light surrounding my body like a soft summer rainfall and then it becomes more dense to become 6th Depth…my very own personal blueprint.

From the 6th Depth my vertebrae develop. Then 5th Depth brings my head, limbs, sex distinction and ears. Then 4th Depth becomes my brain and nervous system followed by 7th Depth where the first signs of life begin in utero (even though my heat is beating, it is not life until now). Third Depth is my circulatory system. Here comes 2nd Depth and skin and hair (I could use some more of that). Back to 1st Depth and my skull forms, my baby heart becomes independent and my endocrine system appears. Back to 2nd Depth where my respiratory system develops even more and my blueprint energy continues to spiral to 4th, 5th and back to 6th depth as I continue to grow.

This is the order of the depths as I grow in my mother’s womb.

There is an Order of Listening to Pulses, an Order of Supporters of Functions, an Order of 12-Organ Manifesting Function, an Order of Energizers of Functions which is 6th Depth Source of Energy and 3rd Depth Source of energy which is Evolving and Developing Man. All of this information can be found on the “Answer Sheet”.

But I cannot teach you that. I continue to learn myself. I can teach self-help and TEMPT you to look for 5-Day Basic Classes in your area at  www.jsjinc.net.
