When we start to work with the energy of the body, we realise that the physical follows the energy. We can read the body, by knowing what the energy is doing.
Case in point. Maria is 75 and she has a very hunched back. She can’t stand up straight anymore. One would say that this is something that ‘happens’ in ‘old age’. However, another story unfolds when we add an understanding of the energy body to the equation.
The main energy (main central) moves down our front (exhale) and up our back (inhale).
Let’s say that when Maria was younger (years younger), something frightened her and she stopped breathing properly. She became afraid of letting go, of exhaling the dirt, dust, grease and grime.
As she became afraid of exhaling, the energy down the front of her body became tenser and started ‘pulling her down’, at the same time creating a safe, protective space for her chest and her heart.
‘The body is the demonstration of your thinking’. – Postures of the body give the state of the heart and the mind.
The Ancient Healing Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu allows us to: 1. move through our disharmonies at the point when they HAVE NOT YET TAKEN HOLD IN THE PHYSICAL, 2. REPAIR THE BODY when disharmonies have taken hold in the physical and 3. Effect LIFESTYLE CHANGES by harmonising attitudes like Worry, Fear, Anger, Grief and Trying Tos that created the disharmonies in the first place.
All this through the process of GETTING TO KNOW (HELP) MYSELF.
I often see people in a perfect Jin Shin Jyutsu self help position, even though they have probably never heard of this ancient healing art before in their lives. How can this be?
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate wisdom that we all tap into unknowingly and intuitively when we hear the body’s message: please help me!
By introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu, one awakens to the conscious application of the art, and therefore is empowered to do something about the discomfort, the pain, and the every day sufferings that we humans ‘endure’.
I say let’s not endure any more! Let’s not exist and be victims to all the slings and arrows that come our way, but let’s actively and consciously live a happier, healthier life. Jin Shin Jyutsu helps us do this, by knowing where to put our hands on the body.
If you have a Jin Shin Jyutsu question, please send it directly to me at flows(at)flowsforlife(dot).com
When you email me your question, I do ask PLEASE that you tell me whether you’ve attended any Jin Shin Jyutsu classes or self-help workshops and what books or Jin Shin Jyutsu material you have. This is mainly so that I can tailor the answer individually.
And don’t worry if you are new to this ancient healing art – you need nothing more than just your hands and the knowledge of where to put them to alleviate pain, manage fatigue, boost the immune system and deal with the myriad other day-to-day discomforts and complaints such as headaches, cramps, muscle tension, etc. I look forward to hearing from you.
In the case that you have had a reply from me, thank you if you have sent me your feedback! It is nice to hear how the different holds work for you – it makes me HAPPY (smile)
