The best year with Jin Shin Jyutsu. I used to think it was when I first discovered the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Then I thought it was when I had such a remarkable return to health.

“I don’t have time to . . . “ We’re all busier than ever – even though we’re not getting in our cars to get things done.

Things change . . . we need to adapt. This isn’t always so easy. Sometimes it is, and other times we may feel a bit stuck. This has been more challenging lately. Are our lives complete? Do we have everything that we need available? The thing that stays the same, though, is that we can… Continue reading Adapt to new challenges with SEL 22

15 in Jin Shin Jyutsu relates to joy and washing our hearts with laughter. When our 15s are harmonised, we can release accumulations and have space for new joy to enter our hearts. We can change our relationship with our lives and experiences: bring together different bits and pieces to form a new creations. Much like the quilt shown below is a collection of different pieces of fabric – brought together in a new way.
Stagnations in the 15 area can result in cold feet and legs, heaviness in the legs.
15 in Jin Shin Jyutsu affect our harmony and our physical being. These energy centres (SEL15) are located on the front of the body at the top of the femur, in the groin. We have one on the left side, and one on the right side.
We can harmonise our 15s by holding these areas. Another option is to place our left hand over the right shoulder, and our right hand on the right groin. For the left side, place our right hand over the left shoulder, and our left hand on our left groin.
Safety Energy Locks 14 relate to equilibrium and sustenance. When harmonised, we draw in the nourishment we need from our food and the worlds. When compromised, we may struggle to maintain balance between the upper and lower body.

Self-love, creativity, fertility – all wonderful things in life are held by this energy centre in the body. Within the 13s we have the power to transform ourselves, our circumstances, and our perspective.
We’re asked to love our enemies. This can be difficult some times. It can be even more difficult in times of fear, stress, and self-doubt. Some enemies are parts of ourselves that we do not accept. By accepting ourselves and others, we open to love and creativity. This allows us to bring new things to life – fertility, projects, and new ventures.
We can ease fear in our bodies by holding our index finger. We can ease stress in our lives by holding our little finger. Simple ways to increase our harmony, decrease the challenges in our lives. Sometimes, though, things are too difficult to face on our own – we need extra help to release fears, stress, and self-doubt. There is hope and there is help.
The 13 energy centres are located on the front of the rib cage, a few inches below the clavicle, by the third rib.
Ease tension in this area: by resting each hand on the SEL 13s. Relax as the tension eases over a few minutes.
