Last Sunday I had a lovely Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment from a friend. We were working our way back through the depths from four to one (more on the different depths of energy in another post). At one point she had her right hand on my right SEL 2 and her left hand on my left SEL 4. And boy, did I fly!

It was a lovely sensation….until she moved her hands because she realised that she was in the ‘wrong’ position!!! When she ‘corrected’ that position, my back went into a spasm of pain. It was incredible. I asked her please to stop and to go back to the ‘incorrect’ position.

The point I’m trying to make here is that we get so caught up in how things ‘should’ be, and what is seemingly ‘right’ and ‘wrong’.

My interpretation of the situation, specifically my friend having such a wonderful effect with that ‘incorrect’ position is that 1. she intuitively ‘heard’ what my body was asking her for and followed that before her ‘brain’ could get in the way and 2. that hold was probably part of another flow (although I have yet to find it, anyone have any ideas?).

It had the most profoundly soothing effect on me – on the whole spine and my hip area. In fact, I think I’ll go and give myself another session right now…
