Stress Relief & Immune Support On-line Seminar

 

Here’s another free resource you may want to check out. I have never been to Prama Wellness Center, but a friend of mine has been there several times and loves the staff and quality of information and expertise….

 

Are you STRESSED OUT??? Join us for this valuable on-line seminar with Dr. Sid Jordan and Ramesh Bjonnes of the Prama Wellness Center and co-hosted by Red Wing Enterprises, Saturday, 10 AM to 12:30 PM ET on a natural approach through diet, yoga, meditation, compassionate communication, and juice cleansing. Free or suggested donation!

In these days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hear the same message from MDs as well as natural health practitioners: Now is the time to prioritize preventive health, both physically and mentally.

In this one-day online program, we at the Prama Wellness Center will share some effective tools to help strengthen our physical and psychological immune systems so that we can build resiliency in dealing with the stress and uncertainty we now are facing.

This online seminar will cover the following topics:

Tools to strengthen our physical immune system
with Ramesh Bjonnes, Director of the Prama Wellness Center

Now is definitely not the time to burn the candle at both ends. Rather, now is the time to do our workouts, eat a nutrient dense diet, take preventive herbs and vitamins as well as practice yoga and meditation. We can do that by following a few simple guidelines at home.

Topics to be covered in this workshop include:

Meditation for better immunity
Diet to strengthen the immune system response
Herbs to strengthen nerves, improve digestion and boost the immune system
Intermittent fasting tips to build stamina and immunity

Tools for Psychological Immunity during the Coronavirus Crisis
with Dr. Sid Jordan, Psychologist and Co-founder of the Prama Institute

This workshop will focus on the social support and stress management we all need during this crisis.

Practicing “distant socializing” can ameliorate the social isolation induced by “social distancing”. In times of crisis, our efforts to observe sound physical care guidelines and strengthen social ties can be deepened during this social lock down.

We all have to hit the reset button to find a new normal for work (or unemployment) and a balance in self-care and care of others. Let’s seek this new balance together by building psychological immunity through positive thoughts, words and actions.

Self-Care tools to be covered in the workshop:

How to slow down and take deep breaths
How to meditate on and off the mat
How to define and confront obstacles and fears
How to care for Self and Others
How to stay in touch with family and friends
How to listen attentively with your heart to yourself and others
How to make loving requests to family and friends related to your needs

You can sign up on Prama’s Facebook page here. Just scroll down a couple of posts until you see the notice about the seminar.

Acupressure Videos For Ear Massage, Detoxification/Decongestion & Immunity Building

 

Just got an e-mail I’m sharing below from Michael Reed Gach, PhD at Acupressure. com that contained several DIY routines that would be especially beneficial to put into practice during the current health situation when anything that supports conscious well-being is so important. The processes are simple, easy, and free….the trifecta of self-help tools, as far as I’m concerned. I felt better just watching the first two videos. Imagine what it will be like when I actually practicing the routines, plus finish watching video 3! 🙂

Hi Acupressure Friends,

I hope you’re focusing on keeping yourself healthy during this world-wide coronavirus health crisis by getting daily exercise, eating healthy food, less saturated fat, less sugar, good protein and more greens.

I have found great benefits from giving myself Ear Massages throughout the day. I’m leaving you a link to this instructional Ear Massage video to support you at this challenging time.

Tips For Strengthening The Immune System & Remaining Calm During These Challenging Times

 

For those who are looking for some natural ways to strengthen the immune system and remain balanced and as anxiety-free as possible during these times of challenging conditions in the world, here’s a short article from the Doctors Are Dangerous newsletter recommending that “miracle” multi-purpose health aid coconut oil, plus ginger, as well as a list of some Self-health Health posts you may find helpful…..

Fight Colds, Flu and Other Viruses with Coconut Oil and Ginger

Coconut oil contains a fatty acid called lauric acid, which has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has anti-viral properties, which make it perfect for fighting winter colds, viruses including Coronavirus and other respiratory illnesses. Studies have shown that coconut oil can bolster a weakened immune system by improving the white blood cell count, which helps the body directly fight viruses and infections.

To prevent colds, adults can consume 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil or more per day. This can be added to other foods or used in cooking. Some people like the flavor so well that they eat it directly from the container. Regular consumption can strengthen the immune system, so we have a better chance of fighting colds before they ever start.

Once cold symptoms manifest, however, coconut oil can help alleviate many symptoms and even shorten the duration of the cold. In order to help clear sinus passages, an ill person can rub organic, cold-pressed coconut oil with two drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oil on his or her chest. It should be massaged into the upper back and the head as well. Being able to breathe more easily will allow the sufferer to sleep better, and a good night`s rest is important to the healing process.

When added to tea or broth, coconut oil can gently soothe a sore throat and ease coughing in addition to boosting immunity and fighting the virus directly. It can also be mixed with foods, or you can have coconut oil in a smoothie.

To further support your health through the winter months try incorporating ginger into your health routine. It can also be taken as a tea added to smoothies, juices, soups, broths or other meals. Ginger is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful health benefits. In particular, it has been demonstrated to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, anti-ulcer, antioxidant, anticancer, anti-microbial, anti-hyperglycemic, anti-allergic, antioxidant, and anti-platelet activities at different doses/concentrations.

With the combined benefits of coconut oil and ginger you should be able to sail through winter and into spring vibrant and healthy.

I also recommend having a high quality colloidal silver on hand; this can be used internally, as well as sprayed up the nose and/or used in a neti pot to keep viruses and bacteria from adhering to the mucus lining of the nasal passages. Also, liposomal vitamin C  (and see this article about using high doses of C),  the Master Tonic, and Wisdom of the Ages Advantage grapefruit seed extract are great DIY “first aid” products to help keep immunity strong and “bad bugs” at bay, regardless of what flu or virus is currently going around. And check out these past Self-help Health posts for more useful ideas:

And from a more metaphysical perspective, you might reflect on this information from Abraham-Hicks. Not giving into fear, reducing stress and anxiety, and having an attitude of  gratitude are probably the most potent immunity boosters there are:

Your sophisticated physical body exists because of the intelligence of your cells. And the intelligence of your cells exists because of their Connection to Source Energy.

When doctors and scientists try to find cures for diseases without taking into consideration the Vibrational relationship between the physical Being and Source Energy, they are looking for cures in all the wrong places. If the resistance that disallowed the Well-Being to begin with is not released, it will show up in the form of another and another disease.

Your cells, because of their connection to the intelligence of Source Energy, know exactly what to do in order to become the incredible variety of functioning cells in your magnificent physical body. And in the absence of the hindrance that is caused by your resistant negative thought, that communication stays open to clear, up-to-the-moment interaction, keeping your physical body at peak and perfect performance.

In the absence of negative emotion—and therefore the allowance of complete alignment and communication with Source Energy—your physical body can reclaim its balance and recover from any imbalance. And once balance has resumed, it is easy to maintain with consistently good-feeling thoughts.

p. s. For “regular” vitamin C, ascorbic acid and ingredients for making your own liposomal version at discount prices, iHerb.com is a great place to shop (use code CJG192 if you are a new customer and spend more than $40 and you will get money off). Plus, shipping is free on orders of $20 or more, and you get an extra 5% off on orders over $60.  

Vitacost.com is another one of my favorite on-line places to shop. Great discount prices, ever-expanding inventory, free shipping on $49 and up, and if you have an eBates/Rakuten account (free to set up using the link toward the bottom of my Resources webpage) you will earn cash back when you shop thru their portal at Vitacost (as well as at 100s of other stores!), plus get a $10 off coupon with your first order of $25 or more. Woo-hoo!

Jin Shin Jyutsu For Weight Loss And Restoring Energy + Interesting Research On The Keto Diet

 

Here are a couple of good Jin Shin Jyutsu holds/flows to know about from Astrid at FlowsForLife.com. Both of these are great ones to keep in mind, especially during and after the holiday season, since that’s a time we are prone to over-eat and over-do in general. How fascinating that you can hold one cheek to lose weight, the other if you want to gain, and both to allow the body to adjust to what it needs. How cool is that?!

 

Flows For Life How to Lose weight with Jin Shin Jyutsu

Every year when Spring is around the corner, I feel the need to shed those few extra pounds I put on in Winter. In this article, I share how to lose weight with some simple Jin Shin Jyutsu exercises.

Two ‘energy sites’ that help us lose weight

We have two different ‘energy sites’ on the body (four if you count the right and left sides) that help with weight loss. These energy sites are officially called Safety Energy Locks, or SELs for short. They are spheres of concentrated energy on the body about the size of a tennis ball.

SEL 21: Release mental and physical weight

Safety Energy Lock number 21 is found right under the cheekbone on the face. Place the right fingers on the RIGHT side of the face just under the cheekbone for weight LOSS. Place the left fingers on the LEFT side of face just under the cheekbone for weight GAIN. If you forget which side is which, hold both sides and the body will adjust itself to what it needs. It will! The body is very clever that way.

Placing the hands on either cheekbone helps weight balance, helps relieve MENTAL STRESS and ‘frees us from mental bondage’. So when I feel mentally stressed, I use this self help hold to calm my mind and calm me down.

This self help hold is also really good to relieve DIZZINESS.

SEL 25: Regenerate all body functions

Safety Energy Lock number 25 is found on the right and left sitting bones.

Sit on your hands (with the palms up against the body) at least 20 minutes a day to stay fit, to take lactic acid out of the muscles after exercising, and to lose volume from the hip and thigh area. Because SEL 25 is all about quietly regenerating all the body functions it is very helpful to keep the body fit and toned, as well as increasing alertness and mental clarity.

If you want more energy, sit on your hands!

Flows For Life how to lose weight with Jin Shin Jyutsu 2

Both these exercises are easy to do and can even be practiced while sitting watching TV, so there’s no excuse not to put them to use. 🙂 For a more meditative experience, sit or lie quietly with your eyes closed.

And here’s a short article I found interesting. I’m not very knowledgeable about the Keto Diet, but I know many people are into it. And suddenly everything on the grocery shelves is being labeled keto-friendly, so I thought this research might be good for people to know about….

Keto diet reverses early signs of diabetes—but only for the first week image

Keto diet reverses early signs of diabetes—but only for the first week….

(by Bryan Hubbard ) The high-fats, low-carbs ketogenic diet could be good for you—but only for one week. After that, it starts to have negative health effects, a new study suggests.

The keto diet is a dramatic way to kick-start the immune system and reverse signs of diabetes and inflammation. And it delivers all those positive health effects in just seven days.

But continue the diet any longer than that and the body starts storing the fat it’s supposed to be burning, say researchers from Yale School of Medicine.

The diet tricks the body into thinking it’s in starvation mode by dramatically reducing carb consumption; as a consequence, it starts burning fats instead of carbs and this triggers the release of chemicals called ketone bodies as an alternative source of fuel. This process also releases immune T-cells, and these reverse signs of diabetes and inflammation, and also improve the body’s overall metabolism. After a week on the diet, blood sugar levels and general inflammation reduce.

But these health benefits go into reverse after around a week on the diet and the body begins to store the large amounts of fats we’re consuming.

With one in three Americans pre-diabetic—their blood sugar levels are already too high—anything that can reverse that should be welcome. And even better, it can be done on just a seven-day diet. “Who wants to be on a diet forever, anyway?” said researcher Vishwa Deep Dixit.

Two Yummy & Healthy Alkalizing Holiday Recipes + DIY Bath Bombs, Appetizers And MORE!

 

Here’s two popular recipes from Ross Bridgeford at https://liveenergized.com that he shares with his Alkaline Base Camp clients. I haven’t tried them yet, but definitely plan to and they sound great for making (and sharing!) during this holiday season.

The first one is full of healthy fats, protein and has very little sugar per serving…..

 

Ross’ Alkaline Salted Caramel Slice

Makes 12 Slice

Base:

1.5 cups of shredded coconut
6 soft Medjool dates
A pinch of cinnamon

Layer One:

1/2 cup coconut cream
3 Medjool dates
2 tbsp coconut syrup
A pinch of Himalayan salt (or any natural / sea salt)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup tahini
a few drops of vanilla essence

Layer Two:

3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp cacao powder
a few drops of vanilla
pinch cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut syrup

Instructions:

  1. Start by blending the base ingredients together until they look like a regular ‘biscuit base’ then add these to a baking tin (regular round one or a rectangle one – whichever you have)
  2. Next blend the layer one ingredients and add this on top of the base.
  3. Now make layer two by, you guessed it, blending these ingredients together and add these on top!
  4. If you are going to eat all of them between yourself, family, guests, etc these within a couple of days, put straight into the fridge. However, if you are planning on having them slowly over a week or two, cover and put in the freezer as sliced, individual serves.
  5. You can remove them and enjoy within just 10-15 minutes of taking them out of the freezer.

And that’s all there is to it! Takes so little time, can be made at the last minute and it needs only 9 ingredients!

pumpkin ginger soup

Warming Hearty Pumpkin & Ginger Soup

This soups is super-alkaline, highly anti-inflammatory and it’s antioxidant-rich too! You can enjoy it either chunky or blended smooth.

The ginger is especially anti-inflammatory, and also powerfully anti-carcinogenic too. And the combination of the antioxidants in the pumpkin and carrots are fantastic for repairing oxidative damage to DNA, as well as supporting the cardiovascular system.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 medium sized butternut squash or pumpkin
2 large carrots
1 large red onion
2-3 garlic cloves
1 fresh red chili
1 cm piece of fresh ginger
1.2 litres of vegetable stock
Juice of 1 orange (optional)
Fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper
Olive/Coconut Oil

Instructions:

  1. First up, you need to cut the onion and garlic cloves into nice fine pieces. Now get going on the squash by peeling it and cutting it into cubes, about 1 cm square. Peel the carrots and cut a similar size.
  2. Now, carefully de-seed the chili and cut it into small pieces. Wash your hands thoroughly now, and then peel the ginger and chop roughly.
  3. Heat the oil (coconut is preferable) in a large pot and gently fry the onion and garlic on a low heat until they begin to soften (approx 4 min). Throw in the carrot and squash and season and then fry for another 5-6 minutes until it all starts to soften a little. Add more oil if you need it here.
  4. Next add 1.2 litres of organic/yeast free vegetable stock, the ginger, chili and thyme leaves. Bring it all to the boil and then simmer for about 25 min until the squash and carrots are soft.
  5. Now is the fun part – throw it all into a blender and puree it up until it is smooth and then squeeze in the orange juice. Delicious!

Personal note: I plan to just use some hot sauce and/or crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little kick and save the time and effort of dealing with the chili pepper.

Jin Shin Jyutsu for Fear, Depression, PMS, Circulation & More, PLUS Free Scalar Energy Series

 

After posting about Prime Mover, a key Jin Shin Jyutsu hold/flow, a reader asked me to share more processes she could put into practice, so this is response to her request…..

 

JIN SHIN JYUTSU TO LIFT DEPRESSION & FEELING FEARFUL

Feeling fear sometimes is a natural part of our human ‘beingness’. When we become STUCK in FEAR it it can give way to deeper issues such as depression, despair and powerlessness. The good news is that there are some simple Jin Shin Jyutsu exercises to harmonise fear and lift depression.

However, you don’t need to be in a state of depression to feel the benefits, as this helps everything, on all levels!

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu Exercises to Lift Depression

Hold the Index Finger

If you suffer from fear and anxiety, then holding the index finger can be really helpful. The Attitude of FEAR relates to the energies of the index finger. FEAR cuts us off from our FLOW. When we are in the flow, we are in harmony – there are no blockages which can cause an array of medical conditions.

When we don’t let go, we don’t allow the flow. The opposite of fear is flow. Holding index fingers gets you back in the flow.

Furthermore Mary Burmeister says: “The index fingers, when not in harmony, are the source of all LACKS.

LACK of: perception, balance of thinking, energy, health, and all material things, begin to cause FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real).”

I find Mary’s words so profound. Believe me, I am constantly in awe of these words as I experience the POWER of holding my index fingers.

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu Exercises to Lift Depression

Marvelous self help

Holding the index finger is a rather marvelous self help exercise. It is simple but so dynamic.

Add the Ring Toe (4th Toe)

But there is more good news! In Day 3 of the Self Help Classes, we learn that fingers and toes are connected. So we can use fingers and toes together to help us in very dynamic ways!

Holding the Ring Toes by themselves helps the following energy functions: liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, diaphragm.

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu Exercises to Lift Depression

Dynamic Duo: Index Fingers and Ring Toes

Holding the Index Fingers and Ring Toes helps all the circulatory functions in the body helping the FLOW. Do this exercise regularly (every day) to harmonize fear and lift the feeling of depression.

Left Side:
Wrap your right hand around the left index finger
Hold for 5-10 minutes or more, then
With your left hand hold the left ring toe (with position of the feet in image, place thumb on the top and rest of fingers on the bottom side of toe)
Hold for 5-10 minutes or more
(if you can reach both left and right ring toes, then at the same time hold the right ring toe)

Right Side:
Wrap your right hand around the left index finger
With your left hand hold the left ring toe
(if you can reach both left and right ring toes, then at the same time hold the right ring toe)

Note: If you can, lie on your back and cross your legs so you can grab your ring toes more easily. If you find grabbing the ring toes difficult in whatever position, then get someone else to hold your ring toes for you while you hold your index fingers. Maybe you can bribe your children or grandchildren to do this for you.

Here’s more from Astrid, this time about a JSJ hold that can help with PMS, prostate, restless legs, cold feet and poor circulation…..

Pre Menstrual Syndrome or PMS as it is commonly known can come on a day or two before menstruation. It can cause sudden cramping in the pelvic area which is very uncomfortable and painful, to say the least.

I know first hand how painful it is!

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu self help pms

The pain was excruciating

One day as I drove along on my own, a sudden and excruciating cramp came on. Luckily, it happened just as I stopped at a red traffic light. Of course, I didn’t have much time, so I had to think fast! What could I do to move this on?

My instinct (inner wisdom) told me to ‘sandwich’ my pelvis.

An astonishing result

Imagine my astonishment when, within seconds, the pain and cramp subsided! By the time the light turned green again, the cramp, the pain and the discomfort had all completely DISAPPEARED.

Better still, I’ve never had cramps like that again.

Not just for women!

The self help hold will also benefit men, as it keeps the energy flowing properly through the pelvic area, it supports especially the prostate.

Why does this work?

This Jin Shin Jyutsu self help hold is really simple and effective (have I said that before?) because it releases congested/stuck energy in the pelvic area.

When energy gets stuck there can be pain and discomfort. But it’s not only in the pelvic area; one may also feel heavy or uncomfortable in the legs.

Basically, the energy flow down the legs is constricted, so this is also a great hold to help with poor circulation, cold feet and to relieve restless legs.

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu self help PMS

Self help exercise to clear the pelvic area

So to get the energy flowing properly, we can help clear the area as follows:

Place the left hand on the pubic bone. This clears the descending energy down the front.

Place the right hand with the palm side on the base of the spine as far down as possible near the coccyx. If it’s uncomfortable doing it that way you can also turn your hand around so the back of the hand is on the base of the spine.

Jin Shin Jyutsu: The Prime Mover

 

I have been out of the blogging loop for awhile now due to A) an unexpected move (still in the process of getting settled), followed by B) an amazing Mastering Alchemy conference in Atlanta, and then C) some kind of extreme physical yuck w/ a temp of over 103° that I think was at least partially triggered by all the shifts and changes set in motion by A and B. 😦 But I did lots of neti potting, used the Kick-Ass Flu Remedy protocol, elderberry syrup, colloidal silver, and a few other odds and ends and actually bounced back quicker than anticipated. YEA!

Anyway, I’m glad to finally get around to posting this information about Prime Mover that’s been in my draft section for ages. If you weren’t around when I featured an article I wrote for Sivana Spirit about Jin Shin Jyutsu, one of my absolute favorite self-help health tools, then be sure and read that before this one, so you’ll have some background appreciation of this simple, but effective form of energy medicine.

The following article is by JSJ teacher and practitioner Astrid Kauffmann at Flows For Life and focuses on one of the most important, yet simple, flows/holds you can use….

 

CHANGE YOUR LIFE WITH PRIME MOVER

The Insides of the Knees is the One!

The mover and shaker in Jin Shin Jyutsu is the energy site that is found on the inside of the knees: the energy site that is Number One, as in SEL(Safety Energy Lock) #1.

This one is truly the Power of One! People have told me that when they held their ones for an hour every day, their lives changed!

If you feel stuck

So, if you feel stuck, start holding the inside of your knees. It doesn’t matter whether you cross your arms or not – do whatever feels comfortable for you. Hold for at least 20 minutes at a time if you can.

It’s wonderful that Jin Shin Jyutsu can help us move the energy so that we can get ‘unstuck’ and open up to receive the abundance that life offers.

SEL #1 is called the ‘The Prime Mover’

It is found on the inside (medial side) of the knees. It connects extreme heights with extreme depths and harmonizes us from head to toe because it helps the descending energy (which moves down the front) and the ascending energy (which moves up the back).

It’s ALL about harmonizing the breath; as we exhale, we let go of the old (dirt, dust, grease and grime) and as we inhale, we let in the new (pure energy and abundance).

Also great for emergencies

Holding this energy site is also very helpful in emergencies like breathing difficulties, stomach cramps, menstrual cramps, nausea, vomiting, shock, etc.

I remember years ago I had a situation when I ate something that really did not agree with me and,boy, did my stomach complain. I had severe stomach cramps. They were so bad they took my breath away (literally!).

I was in the middle of nowhere, so I quickly placed my hands on the insides of my knees and held on for dear life.

After a couple of minutes I could feel things starting to ease, although I was still in pain. I held on and waited. Ten minutes in, the pain disappeared and I was back to normal.

Prime Mover SEL 1
And a story involving Prime Mover from Willow Walker, the lady I first learned Jin Shin Jyutsu from….

“Earlier this year, I attended a three-day, 5 Rhythm Dance Workshop. Two hours into the second day, my right knee completely locked up, and would not bend without extreme effort and pain. I tried to shake it out, and dance my way through it. But instead of getting better, it just got worse.

I thought, “How am I going to dance the rest of today and tomorrow when my knee won’t bend?!?” Even worse than the sharp pain, was the thought that I would have to stop dancing for the weekend. Anyone who knows me well knows that this is a serious situation.

I sat down on the side of the room to collect myself, and remembered Jin Shin Jyutsu! I started using self-help flows to specifically address the injury first, then the knee in general, and then the specific “Safety Energy Lock” (SEL) where the pain was located. I wanted to create movement and flow around and through my knee, so the SEL could safely open again. I spent about 15 minutes holding places on my body and leg lightly with my hands as I waited for my knee to return to its normal state; the ability to support continual, creative movement on the dance floor.

A SEL acts like a fuse for our electrical body, switching “closed” when it gets overloaded. When that happens, our energy flow may accumulate there, manifesting as physical pain. Boy, did it ever!

Out of the 26 SELs on each side of our body, the very first one can be found on the inside of the knee. It is known as “The Prime Mover.” And no wonder. You literally cannot move forward without it!

The music ended about the time I finished my self-help flows, and we were invited to dance/move across the floor, propelled by our hips. My knee was still very stiff, and hurt at the slightest movement, and at first I wasn’t sure I could stand the pain. But the alternative of not dancing the rest of the weekend was just not an option. So, I went for it, trusting Jin Shin Jyutsu to open the flow of energy in my body and restore harmony once again.

After crossing the floor once, my knee felt a little less stiff and painful. By the end of the exercise 30 minutes later, my knee was back to normal; 100% pain free with complete range of motion. It continued to feel great, and provided eight more hours of ecstatic dancing without complaint that weekend.

I’ve been holding my 1’s more often this past month myself, and the shifts so far have been absolutely amazing. Now that I have experienced what the Prime Mover can do both within and around my body, I plan to continue holding my 1’s as often as possible, regardless of whether my knee is injured or not.

Anyone and everyone can use Jin Shin Jyutsu to help themselves and others. In fact, you already do and you just don’t know it. Our bodies know what to do when we just let them be.

I feel so blessed to know about this resource that allows us to help ourselves with nothing more than our hands, our intention to help ourselves, awareness of our energetic body, and a little bit of time. So simple. So beautiful.” — Willow

There’s also a story told of a man who was on the verge of total financial collapse, standing to lose everything if his company’s business didn’t soon turn around. His wife knew someone who knew Mary Burmeister, the woman who brought Jin Shin Jyutsu® to the west. When Mary was asked how he could help himself, she recommended that he hold the inside of his knees for an hour each day every day for a month. And so he did. During those 30 days, things shifted dramatically in every part of his life, and he achieved his greatest financial success to date!

And here’s a short little video I found that gives you a quick tutorial on the primary finger holds mentioned in my previous post on JSJ, as well as some interesting input about the Prime Mover/SEL # 1, including how it can be used in place of the Heimlich maneuver in certain situations:

 

Also, Astrid offers a free download of a 15-page booklet on JSJ on her website. You can check it out here.

10/26/19 UPDATE: A friend read this post and asked me exactly where SEL #1 was, because she wanted to be sure she was holding the right place. I just checked my book The Touch of Healing, which I highly recommend for people interested in JSJ; it’s what we used as a reference for the JSJ class I took a number of years ago. Anyway, I thought I would share the info that I gave her, in case anyone else had the same question.

The book says “SEL #1/Prime Mover is located on the inside of each knee, right at the bulge, where the thigh and shinbone connect. It unifies the descending energy (which travels down the front of the body) w/ the ascending energy (which flows up the back) and thus harmonizes from head to toe. SEL #1 is considered ‘the prime mover’ connecting extreme heights w/ extreme depths. It helps all forms of abdominal distress (bloating, discomfort, etc) and headaches. It also promotes deeper and easier breathing.”

The book also mentions “There is no need to be overly concerned w/ precision. There is a 3 inch effective radius around every SEL. In time, as one’s awareness grows, one may learn to ‘bull’s-eye,’ but this is not essential.”
