Give MY SELF a Hug for Peace

Jin Shin Jyutsu flowers

We have 26 ‘energy sites’ on the body – 26 on the left side and 26 on the right side. They are mirror images of each other. Each one has a specific location and a specific function to help us on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

These 26×2 areas on the body are not points. They are three dimensional, concentrated spheres of energy that have a diameter of about 3 inches. So it’s important to realise that there is quite a big area to work with. As practitioners, we aim to go to the place in the energy site that is most tense, so that we can release the tension, and get the energy flowing properly again.

The number 26 energy sites (or Safety Energy Locks (SELs) as we refer to them in Jin Shin Jyutsu terms) mean Complete (that which was, is, will be). We humans are total and complete. We can release and harmonise the number 26 energy sites (one on the left side and one on the right) by giving MY SELF a hug (see image below – exercise 1). SEL 26 is found under the arm pit on the lateral (outer) edge of the shoulder blade.

There is another energy site we can use with number 26 and that is number 24. This energy site (24) is located on the top of the foot down from the little, 4th and middle toes, on the left and right sides. If you feel an area of tension then that’s where you want to hold to release and harmonise the 24s! SEL 24 is the harmoniser of chaos, and is also called the Peacemaker.  Mary Burmeister said of SEL 24: ‘…harmonise all chaos within for complete peace of mind and body.’

Want to start working with energy sites 24 and 26 on the body? 

On Monday, 30 November, 2015 we are organising the next JSJ Global Event.

Please join us at 11.30 am and/or 11.30 pm for 60 minutes YOUR LOCAL TIME, WHERE EVER YOU ARE to create a rainbow of peace around the world. If you can’t make these times, then feel free to do them when ever you are able to on the day.

We will start in Australia and New Zealand, move around the world along the different time zones, along Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and then the Americas, finishing with Hawaii! In the past, over 30 countries have participated.

Harmonise MY SELF for PEACE.

Will you join us? 

You can do all of these exercises, or pick and choose which one feels most comfortable.
The exercises shown are for the left side. If you want to do the right side, then reverse the hands and the position on the body. So if it says right hand on left 26, then the right side is left hand on right 26, etc.
