Language is amazing! The language of the hands predates spoken languages. According to ancient records that remain in the Archive of the Imperial Palace of Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Guatama (Buddha, in India), the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things; Japan A.D. 712).
Jin Shin Jyutsu (pronounced: gin shin jit zoo) is an ancient Japanese Art, as opposed to a technique, that practices this language of the hands. A technique is a mechanical application of a skill. An art is a unique, skillful creation intrinsically connected to bliss. We use our hands to creatively communicate this bliss with our bodies, engaging the energy from the eternal Source of Life. There are 17,000 tactile receptors in the hand, and about 4,000 nerve endings at the tips of our fingers. These densely bundled groups of nerve endings connect with our energy pathways of our organs, influencing them and causing them to be relaxed, stimulated, or harmonized. This communication creates a tangible map of our subtle energy functions. When we are practicing mudras, stretching, crossing, curling, and touching fingers and palms, we are communicating with the body. The hands act as "jumper cables", energizing the body's drained battery; stimulating our awareness and understanding of "Now Know Myself". This brings the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle bodies back to their neutral, or balanced, state; reflecting the perfect blueprint once again.
There are several energy pathways (rivers) that feed/bring life and light to all of our cells. When one or more of these rivers gets jammed up, it may lead to discomfort or pain. This blockage will not only disrupt the local area, but if left without attention, can eventually lead to other disharmonies along the path of the energy flow. Our energy rivers are just that; they are not enclosed in tubes, or shafts. Thus, when there is a back-up, there may also be over-flow. Imagine a river flooding. The river itself is not bad, but the extra water going where it isn't meant to be can create a lot of interesting projects. By connecting to Source via our Breath, this energy can be channeled back into it's optimal flow pattern, relieving stress through out the entire system. Practicing these mudras a little bit every day is easy. The results will speak for themselves. Surrender to the process. Breath. Smile. Be.
Thanks for being you!
