Life is too important to be taken seriously. ~ Oscar Wilde
While many forms of energy work shy away from addressing emotional well-being, the harmonizing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu understands that our emotions are vital to our overall health.
Emotions are a crucial aspect of being human and allowing our emotions to flow freely is critical to maintaining a balanced system. There are no good emotions and no bad emotions; emotions are simply energies moving through the vessel of our body/mind.
All emotions are healthy unless we prevent their natural flow and they become stagnant; and if we cling to them, they become stone.
This being human is as a guest house
With every morning comes a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, an anger…
Welcome and entertain them,
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows
Who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture…
They are clearing you out
for some new delight!
This being human is harder than one first imagines, so in order to allow all emotions to sweep through your inner sanctuary you must cultivate humility, patience and self-love. And this cultivation requires a calm and peaceful mind. Which is where Jin Shin Jyutsu can help; you have the opportunity to experience an inner calm which is always present within you. It is this new awareness that begins to grow into a deep, thick root, an anchor, which holds you steady when the difficulties of Life come barreling through.
As you learn to stay present with your emotions as they surface, and you learn to feel the physical sensations of each emotion, you will also learn that there is a space between you and your emotions, a space where you reside and your emotions do not. You are not your emotions.
Emotions are simply moving through and guiding you into deeper understandings; emotions are not to be ignored but neither do they need to become your barometer for happiness. Emotions can often help us understand underlying problems in your psychological habits, problems which are often the root cause of the emotional imbalance. And it is important to note that there is a fine line between listening to your emotions and holding onto your emotions.
With Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, you will experience your natural state of effortless-harmony in which your emotions begin to play their proper role. And what about Love?
To Love without knowing how, wounds the one we Love. ~ Thich Nhãt Hanh
I have witnessed the truth of this quote both in others and in myself. How many times have we tried to Love someone and yet we ended up hurting them, or perhaps they hurt us, and more likely, we hurt each other.
When our emotional limbic system has been incorrectly wired, it hijacks our brain/body and we are left to respond in ways that are harmful to ourselves and those we love.
A large aspect of Jin Shin Jyutsu energy healing is learning to give and receive Love as freely as one walks through lavender fields, for Love is the basis for all human connection and too often we have mistaken desire, passion, manipulation and control for Love. Love is none of these.
When we begin to allow all our emotions to move through of their own accord, we begin a lifelong journey of self-love where we forgo the need to judge ourselves and simply allow Life to be, “as it is.” This self-love blossoms into a compassionate love for all other beings in this universe, and beyond…
Know Thyself. Love Thyself. The rest will happen as naturally and organically as a seed planted in the dark, nourishing, springtime soil.
