TGH Cycles Lab

Hello, everyone! SEL 1 and 2 are frequently done in combination, but what does SEL 2 do on its own? Saturn and Uranus are as different as can be and yet share the same end goal. All the Tarot knights are symbols of a messenger, but a messenger of what? If you have pondered these or similar questions, join me on a journey of self-discovery. We’ll root our explorations in the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and Astrology but will expand onto topics from Tarot, I Ching, physics, metaphysics, the non-dualistic teachings of the world, and much more. I like

Bladder FE and the Lymphatic System?

I have to ask you guys, does anyone have anything in their notes on a connection between Bladder Function Energy and the Lymphatic System? I mean, beyond that, Bladder FE governs the waters in the body and helps us “wash our fears and tears away.” Anything else? I have been feeling lethargic lately. And suffering from allergies. Last night I did Bladder in honor of the Sun entering Libra season, and when I woke up, there were no allergy symptoms and no fatigue. I also woke up early and felt refreshed and rested. I know my lymphatic circulation has been

Third Method is Awesome!

When you don’t know what to do, give yourself the Third Method! It is not an accident that the Third Method is called the Emergency Room in JSJ. And according to Jiro Murai, the application of each Method Correction may be sufficient to reverse a lifetime of disharmony. I woke up with a stiff neck. The next day, the stiffness expanded down my back to reach the side of my leg. Yes, I know, Large Intestine FE is good for sudden onsets of stiffness in the neck, while chronic conditions are helped better than Liver FE. Yet, by the end

Courage in the Face of Changes

I was happy to see all the excitement our Webinar on Cycles provoked. That visible, very public MC spot in the natal chart surely stirred a lot of ah-ha moments. Many people quickly spotted that all the activity in Taurus currently is very close to the public MC spot of a controversial American politician.  The first time when my astrology teachers used this politician’s chart as an example in class, I was dismayed. I did not care much for politics or reality show celebrities. Couldn’t they have picked someone else? More pleasant? Kind? Spiritually inclined? Actually, no! When it comes to astrological

Practitioner, Teacher, Consultant, Coach, or …?

I have been struggling with how to label myself. Nine months of the year, I am a professor of physics. So, that is easy. What about my non-academic pursuits, however? When I started working with clients, I called myself a JSJ practitioner. But then, my penchant for teaching proved too strong, and I ended up offering classes and consultations rather than sessions. When people started asking for astrology readings, I thought I should call myself an astrologer. Only, I did not care much for mainstream astrology. I never wanted to dump an enormous amount of arbitrary information onto the poor

SEL 16 and the Little Toe

I bumped my head in the pool today. I was leisurely floating on my back and didn’t notice I had come close to the edge. So, I spent some minutes in the water holding the same side SEL 16 with the little toe. For those who do not know it already, it is a great flow to keep the circulation harmonious after head injuries. If you enjoy longer sequences, here is the 16-17-18-19 self-help, of which the SEL 16-little toe combination is the anchor step. I have heard miraculous stories about this flow, but none of them are mine. So, I will keep

11-12-4-3 Flow

When Mary Burmeister fell ill, Jiro Murai rode the train daily to visit her in the hospital. He applied not the 14-step Supervisor flow. Neither did he use the 17-step Fatigue. Nor the secret long 23-25 Regeneration Flow. What Jiro did was the three-step 11-12-4-3 flow, given in our Textbook 1, p. 26. My notes offer little insight as to what the flow does except to label is as all-inclusive. One thing for certain, it is difficult to apply it for self-help without modifications. My teachers usually recommended Mudra No 6 as a self-help instead. What does the flow really

Removing Blocks, Dealing with Changes, and much more…

Hello, everyone! We are starting the One Flow class this Thursday, July 7, at 7 pm US EDT. If you have been considering it but haven’t registered yet, you still have a couple days left.
