Get out of your head

I think it’s fair to say that there are times when we can get very stuck in the head – I certainly do from time to time. By that I mean that I have all sorts of thoughts going round and round and then I get myself into a real tizzy. That’s the great ‘worrier’ in me.

I know that if I start worrying I can always hold my thumb. However, sometimes I just really need to get myself ‘out of my head’.

The exercise

In this Jin Shin Jyutsu self help exercise to harmonize the mind and the whole being, we work with four energy sites or Safety Energy Locks: 12, 20, 21 and 22. These SELs are helpful mind specialists.

When you feel stressed, take some time and practice each position for say 2-3 minutes. You will definitely feel the difference. In my experience, the more stressed I am, the bigger the change I feel after.

Position 1
Place left hand/fingers on left neck at SEL 12 and
