Smile to Life - Harmony and Health At Your Finger Tips
My angel friend Gerda gave me The Touch of Healing about Jin Shin Jyutsu. The book, by Alice Burmeister, is a wonderful guide to a simple healing tool. Our fingers and hands. The simple act of holding a finger can be a powerful tool for harmonizing the body. Each finger corresponds to an organ. What I like is that it can be done anywhere and only takes a few minutes. I began to "jumper cable" each finger daily. For example, the little finger helps the heart and small intestine. The attitude associated with that finger is pretense, i.e., "trying to." Most of us are trying to and spreading ourselves too thinly. The little finger called the 5th depth is the key to intuitive knowledge. In the book, I found these pointers important to learning to smile to life.
-- No judging or being judged. When we make judgments, we assume that we know a situation in its totality, which is impossible. Also, judgments assume any situation a person finds himself in could have been avoided by that person. This is unrealistic. Each act that one undertakes represents an awareness at a particular stage of development.
--No comparing or competing. All comparisons are false. Every person and situation is unique and therefore cannot be compared with anyone or anything else. All comparisons and all forms of competition are essentially founded on illusion.
-- No labeling or being labeled. To label is to limit. To be labeled by another person compromises our life condition. When we label a situation or condition with our own diagnosis, we give credibility and attention to the disharmony rather than the harmony.
--No asking why. All maturity and development is an organic process, an orderly unfolding. When we reach the time when understanding is needed, the answer emerges.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese practice that balances your body's energy by using the fingers and hands to eliminate stress, create emotional balance, relieve pain, and alleviate acute conditions. I don't know about you but I can use all the help I can get, so I give it a big thumbs up. :-D
