Jin Shin Jyutsu is a holistic approach to wellness. It is a subtle art that harmonizes the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual energies of our beings.
All of our life projects, whether they be physical, mental, or spiritual, begin on the etheric plane. That is to say that before a project manifests physically, or emotionally, it begins as a disharmony in our subtle energy fields. We can begin harmonizing these energies quite simply by holding our fingers, and breathing nice deep breaths.
Each of our digits has correlations to specific emotions, physical senses, organ functions, elements, and colors to name a few. To balance our subtle energies, we can hold the finger that corresponds to the project we are working on. This subtle energy work is cumulative, and can be thought of as maintenance on our intricate systems. So the more we practice, the more efficiently our systems will function.

This past weekend, Tait and I hiked up Spencer Butte. On our way back down, we encountered this woodpecker a mere 2 feet from the path, getting his grub on. This was the second time, over the course of 24 hours, that Woodpecker crossed our path (the first was at our house that morning). When our attention is drawn in an interesting way to our animal friends, it's up to us to listen and interpret the messages and guidance being shared with us. One of my favorite sites for researching the metaphysical properties of our relationships with animals is "Spirit Animal Totems and the messages they bring you". Essentially, this is what they had to say about our visitor:
"If Woodpecker has come knocking… It is time to really pay attention because opportunity has come knocking along with it. It is signaling you that great changes are happening in your life and it is up to you to seize the moment. Whether it is the renewal of an old project, the finishing of a new project or simply a serendipitous meeting with someone in your life. Whatever way you perceive it know that the door is wide open for you right now and that success is yours for the asking."
This sounds fabulous! I'm ready. I'm IN! I am walking through that door! Yee-Haw!!!
We also had the honor of eating our lunch at the top of Spencer Butte with this amazing hawk. (That's Eugene in the background.) It sat there on the branch through our entire lunch. Just as we stood up, it dove straight toward the ground to snatch up it's abundance. I went back to my trusty Spirit Animal Totems website for the scoop, and this is what I found:
"If Hawk has flown into your life...
Be aware that there is a message to be received and interpreted. Hawk holds the key to higher consciousness and trying to bring certain things into your circle of awareness. Know that enlightenment is imminent. Hawk often represents the ability to see meaning in ordinary experiences if you choose to become more observant. Many of the messages Hawk brings you are about freeing yourself of thoughts and beliefs that are limiting your ability to soar above your life and gain a greater perspective. It is this ability to soar high above to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture that will allow you to survive and flourish."
Yep, that sounds about right. Now the trick is to apply these messages in fruitful and tangible ways. By reading about these powerful allies, and integrating their teachings into our lives, we are honoring their purpose for being. I'm super grateful for this opportunity to connect, and I surrender to this practice. Thanks everybody for being a part of this!
This super easy meditation can take as little as 10 minutes! By doing this everyday (for up to an hour each day) we are reconnecting with our Breath, our inheritance, our birth-right: Divine inspiration, joy, health, and abundance for all beings everywhere! We welcome your feedback. Thanks for stopping by, folks!
