Love is All You Need

"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.
Without them, humanity cannot survive." 
~Dalai Lama

Happy Valentines Day to you! I love this quote by the Dalai Lama as much as I love this photo from my wedding a few years ago. It is such an expression of joy and delight!

When we feel connected to others, the negative aspects of fear have no place to hook in to our BE-ing. Fear is a paralyzing force that hinders the body's natural-motion principles. Fear includes feelings of mental confusion, frustration, depression, timidity, perfectionism, and criticism. Fear is also associated with drug addiction. Fear brings disharmony to the muscular system and affects both bladder and kidney function energy which together are responsible for the regulation of the movement of water throughout the body. Fear limits the body's ability to move freely and translates into back discomfort and stress, and affects the functions that revitalize bones and bone marrow.

 "One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
that word is love."

The INDEX finger is the key to FLOW and LOVE. When you are in the FLOW, you are in HARMONY. There are no obstacles, no limitations, no feelings of lack, no judgment. There is perfect circulation and balance. To balance Fear, HOLD your INDEX finger for 5 minutes or until you can feel a gentle rhythmic pulsing. Even and clear. Breath easily. Relax the shoulders and smile from the very heart of you. As you hold the index finger, you ease back tension/stress and facilitate the flow of life energy throughout the body. All fears begin to melt away. Assimilation and elimination functions begin to improve. Toothaches and teething issues are eased and healthy circulation is restored.

Hold your index finger to clear the chains of fear and to bring flow and love into your very BE-ing! Exhale. Smile. Relax.

"Love doesn’t make the world go round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
~Franklin P. Jones

The Purpose of Pain

"Much of your pain is the bitter potion 
by which the physician within you 
heals your sick self." 
~Kahlil Gibran

When the life energy moves through us without obstruction, we are in perfect harmony.  If we have pain somewhere in the body, it is wise to pay attention to it, because it is a sign that something is out of balance. It warns us that something within the body isn't quite right. It's easy to lose sight of the fact that pain is there to serve you. If you only seek to alleviate pain by suppressing it, you have not addressed the fundamental cause of the pain. Pain is functional because of the signal it gives.

Pain is an indication of the presence of stagnation, a blockage of free movement of life energy through the body. When you feel those initial twinges of pain, it is wise to think of them as a signal from your body that there is a blockage and some attention is needed. I find that if I pay attention and I immediately seek help from my Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner or apply self-help, the pain melts away.

Most of us however ignore these initial twinges. We wait until we are sure that we are in pain and then we seek to suppress the pain with Over The Counter Medications. When these medications cease to "erase" the pain, we wait until the pain is constant and unbearable, then we finally pay attention to the signal and seek help.

Jin Shin Jyutsu helps us to be aware of the signal, and teaches us what to do to address the cause and to return to balance, harmony and wellness. Generally speaking, the longer we live with pain, the longer it will take to release it. With Jin Shin Jyutsu and Time, all things are possible. A return to balance is within your reach. Learn how to erase pain and improve your quality of life!

"Pain is such an uncomfortable feeling 
that even a tiny amount of it 
is enough to ruin every enjoyment." 
~Will Rogers
