Jin Shin Jyutzu and the Mapping of Energy


Attending to the Mysteries of Life

Day to day we move through the demands and realities of our life. On occasions, if we will attend, we see there are mysteries to which we may attend. They can be found in a variety of places. They may come to us from a book we are reading, embrace us from a sudden illness, arise from our religion or simply intrude in ways we could not anticipate. We then have a choice. We can dismiss them or choose to have them enhance the experience of our existence.

A Question of Reality

Recently in a post I talked about my experience with Jin Shin Jyutsu and the wonder of the energy systems in the human body that were used in this healing system. I took a day long course and came back with detailed maps of the systems and how to use them for benefit. They do, indeed, work and are very useful. I have Afib and from time to time I experience a markedly unstable heartbeat. I have a Jin Shin “flow” I use that returns my heartbeat to normal in a matter of seconds.

One question I had was not answered. How was this mapping done? I know of no way to display it with contemporary technology. My suspicion is that since it was done thousands of years ago, that it reflected a visionary sensitivity that has been suppressed now that we have become so much more “cognitive”.

It Has Not Been Completely lost

Perhaps the proper term to use for what happened is “suppressed”. There is considerable evidence that such systems still exists among some of us but it is often criticized as fantasy or a manufactured reality. But we may see alternatives in very young children who are willing to say that they have a very special friend who usually only they can see and interact with. We chuckle and humor them. But what if it is not totally imagination but the remnants of our former abilities and functioning? And what if it is a manifestation of a spirit world we no longer believe in and have dismissed. We can see it in our literature and fantasies but turn away in our day to day lives.

All of us have “strange” and unusual experiences from time to time. But generally we are unwilling to speak of them or share them. We have all heard ghost stories which we may find fascinating or humorous. Or we may have seen a ghost.

Considering Other Possibilities

As noted above, there is the possibility that these things reflect abilities we have lost or suppressed. That raises the question of what other abilities we have lost or pushed aside over human history. I suspect each of us can cite things we have observed that supports the idea we have put parts of ourselves aside. And we can consider the possibility that the “reality” we now perceive will not remain unchanged. I search some of these possibilities in my Gaia’s majesty Trilogy.


Don’t Miss My Developing Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy

I refer to it as a work of magical realism. It is a series with a strong mythological element and a real world setting in this time when women are being empowered at last. It is a time of wonder and awakening for all of humankind.

The Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy

What in your life took hold even without a plan?

Ephemerality to Fac


It was my writing of the Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy which inspired this blog. As a psychologist I have always been impressed by how ephemeral reality can be even for people who are demonstrably stable. When the inspiration for the Majesty stories struck, it quickly became clear that a lot of it had already been created back in the reaches of my mind. Granted, we now have the tools to scan our brains and can see unconscious processes. But it was still amazing to me how well formed it was

Layer upon layer it came forward and with each layer came the characters. Maybe they did not quite come up and introduce themselves, but they were there. Many days after writing I found myself quite weary as if I had really been dealing with a host of beings. I have to wonder how many other people experience that or something related when they write. Our imaginations are powerful things and I suspect many writers feel the same way.

Writing is not an academic exercise or exploration. We have to understand that it is part of ourselves. Possibly what we recall, wish for or feel developing at the moment within us fuels it. But the fact is that it is a dynamic process and the characters bring dynamism. That means they draw energy.

A Sequence Existed

And so the writing proceeded. I thought I was writing a book, but it quickly became clear that there was more than one. The first one, Gaia’s Majesty: Mission Called introduced the concept, the settings for the characters, the characters themselves and the fundamentals of what was happening to humankind. In the second, Gaia’s Majesty:Challenge, Gaia becomes ever more prominent and the world descends into crisis. But, being who I am as a person, there were things I could see. I may be cynical but believe everything can be salvaged. In turn I moved into the third book, Gaia’s Majesty: Transformation.

I’ll leave the books to unfold, but at this point I remain fascinated by the process. And now I have the first book days away from publication and two more books well advanced. What disturbs me is that I feel a fourth book is stirring deep inside and I have no clear idea where it will lead but I can feel it.

Reality as a Living Process

What we call reality requires considerable attention. It is clearly made up of depths and when we get to reality, then we have the interface with our fellow humans. The fact that it is so complex and alive is what gives us our passions and excitement. How wonderful is the process of creation in all its facets and that we have so much moving what we call reality!

Can you perceive something stirring deep inside you?
