The thumbs and little toes are often the most sensitive digits to jumper-cable according to the teaching guidebook ‘The Touch of Healing’ by Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte.  We continue to explore Jin Shin Jyutsu® jumper-cabling technique called the thumb and little toe sequence.

thumb & little finger sequence

What to know about the thumbs: Thumbs dissipate general daily fatigue and promote healthy digestive function. We can release tension from the head, shoulders, and lungs by jumper-cabling either one.

 

thumb & little toe sequence

What to know about the little toes: We can release tension from the back, strengthen the kidney and bladder functions by jumper-cabling the little toes.

 

These thumb & little toe sequences can be used whenever you find yourself thinking or experiencing any of the following: 1. I’m out of balance. 2. I feel nervous. 3. I have muscle spasms. 4. I tire easily. 5.I have a fever. 6. I have a hard time breathing. 7. My digestive system is out of balance. 8. I feel mentally stressed. (Practice this technique as shown in illustrations for 1-2 minutes using either left or right hand and foot or both.)

This is a great book to add to your self-energy healing collection. We have already looked at Jin Shin Jyutsu® practice called cable-jumping using the fingers. The author Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte shows how one can balance disharmony by holding their fingers.

Later this week we will start looking at benefits of cable-jumping our toes. And in the future, we will look at the practice of revitalizing our entire being with the centers of the palms and the soles.

harmonizing energy attitudes through fingers

Jin Shin Jyutsu® teaches a practice called cable-jumping to help move our energy flow through disharmony which is indicated in the illustration above.  Each finger corresponds to a specific emotion or attitude.  This exercise only takes 1-2 minutes on thumb and each finger.  Below is the order starting with either thumb, jumper-cabling it lightly with opposite fingers (each attitude finger is cable-jumped using the fingers not the palm):

1. Thumb (balance): Attitude-worry, organs associated-Spleen, Stomach

thumb holds worry

 2.  Ring finger (rhythm/harmony) :  Attitude-grief, organs associated-Lung, Large Intestine

ring finger holds grief

3.  Middle finger ( inner harmony):  Attitude-Anger, organs associated-liver, Gallbladder

middle finger is anger

4. Index finger (freedom/fluidity):  Attitude-Fear, organs kidney, bladder

index finger fear

 5.  Little finger (intuitive knowledge):  Attitude-trying to-pretense

little finger intuitive

Great you now can start on the other fingers if time permits. Tomorrow we will look at the palm (nourish everything).
