Jin Shin Jyutsu is a marvellous antidote for FEAR: ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’.

What is the quickest way to alleviate the symptoms of Anxiety and FEAR? Jin Shin Jyutsu Hold: Grab either one of your index fingers for a few minutes, until the discomfort subsides (see previous post for the photo and description).

So what is ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’? A JSJ student who came on one of my self-help classes put it beautifully: ‘It’s like walking down a dark alley and at the end of it there’s a light and on the wall is a MONSTER shadow – you are afraid, but you know you can’t turn back – then, when you get there you realise that the ‘monster’ shadow is caused by the reflection of a little puppy.’ The shadow is just the distortion on the wall of that little, non-threatening animal.
