Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Getting to KNOW (Help) Myself
When we start to practice the Art of Jin Shin, we work with the energy of the body, we realize 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.
