Hands-On Tip: The Stomach Function Energy

The stomach flow helps to strengthen the FRONT DESCENDING energy and releases worries. The anchor step of this flow is: left hand under the right cheekbone (SEL 21) and right hand under the middle of the right collarbone (SEL 22). The sequence is reversed for the other side of the body.

SEL 21 takes care of our face, helps the sinuses, our facial expressions and to keep a clear head. The stomach flow circulates in the face including the lips. It is the “cosmetic surgeon” for a youthful, wrinkle-free appearance.

“Fountain of youth: a mind lift beats a face lift.” (What Mary Says, p. 14)

The stomach flow goes down the front of the body, keeping our waist level open and terminating in the big, second and middle toe. On the outside of the big toe, it then becomes the Spleen Function Energy. Any “project” on these toes may indicate a stomach/digestion project. The stomach flow helps with stomach ulcers and when we cannot digest. This also applies to our settings. Thoughts that we digest or not. A strong stomach flow digests everything, does not judge, keeps what is good for us and the rest is excreted. The Stomach Function Energy can harmonize our weight, and is important for mental and emotional balance.

Self-help for harmonizing:

1. Anchor step see above

2. Hold thumbs

3. Hold SEL 21 or 23

4. Hold high 1s (Inside Thighs)

You can find the complete self-help sequence for the Stomach Function Energy in Self-Help Book 1, pages 43 – 47. The three Self-Help Books 1, 2, and 3 by Mary Burmeister form the basis of Jin Shin Jyutsu and should not be missing in any household!

Have fun practicing!


Hands-On Tip: The Kidney Function Energy

The kidneys are the roots of life energy for the body. They store the life essence for all organs of the body. The Kidney Function Energy returns to the Main Central Flow at the end of the sternum at the level of SEL 14, our waist level, which is related to our mind. The waist level helps us digest and process food, thoughts, and life in general.

If our kidney energy is in harmony, we face the unknown without fear, feel an inner strength within us that allows us to master all life’s challenges effortlessly and successfully.

If our Kidney Function Energy is blocked, this often leads to great tension. This leads to muscle tension, including heart muscle, reduced mobility and mental blocks. The resulting fear severes our conscious connection to the light, paralyzes the body and makes us forget who we really are: sons and daughters of creative intelligence, eternal beings of light who have gathered on our planet to spread happiness .

Impaired Kidney Function energy can trigger a variety of symptoms: anxiety, shyness, problems with ears, bones, limbs, blood problems, swollen esophagus, heart pain, fever, prostate problems, etc.

Thanks to our Creator that we can harmonize our Kidney Function Energy in many ways: holding the index fingers, SEL 4 and coccyx, holding SEL 23s or holding the 15s or the quickie right hand holds left toe and left hand on the pubic bone and vice versa for the other side of the body.

“Be love rather than need or want love.” (What Mary Says, p. 9).

“Just stay in the now and be in the center. All will follow.”

(What Mary Says, p. 10)

“The mind is the source of bondage or liberation, sorrow or joy.”

(What Mary Says, p. 14)

Hands-On Tip: Booster for the Immune System: “Safety” Energy Lock (SEL) 23

SES 23 helps to recharge our “run-down” energy battery and keep it in proper circulation. This means both the lymph and the bloodstream and other bodily fluids as well as our emotions. Our live flows and blockages are dissolved. Our blood is cleaned and gets fresh oxygen. The functions of our brain are harmonized, our physical agility increases and we can think clearly again.

SES 23 helps to relieve muscle tension, the immune system, digestion, excretion, kidney problems, the glandular system and the heart. SES 23 not only dissolves fear, but also develops our personality. It aids in “KNOW MYSELF IT IS” and leads to “universal knowledge”. (Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 57)

We realize that our mind is part of the universal, omnipresent creative intelligence and we have access to the Source of all sources.

“I am guided by a force greater than my own desires.” “I am a mixture of beginningless beginning and now.” (What Mary Says, p. 7)

Three simple shortcuts to open SEL 23:

1. Just (hold) left and right “small of back” (SEL 23).


2. Jumper cable (hold) right little finger with your left hand and then left little finger with the right hand.


3. Jumper cable (hold) right groin (SEL 15), with the right hand and right shoulder (SEL 3), with the left hand.


(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 57)

Hands-On Tip: The Heart Function Energy

“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is not only the art of compassion and happiness, but also contains an effortless lightness. If we live from the heart and have the courage to follow our heart’s deepest desires, we will love everything we do. “Life will be easy. The fifth depth loves enthusiasm and ecstasy: “The inner ecstasy of the spirit is the secret fountain of youth.” („JIN SHIN JYUTSU Die Kunst der Selbstheilung“, p. 148 by Waltraud Riegger-Krause)

A harmonious Heart Function Energy radiates vitality and makes our eyes shine. The heart is our strongest organ and not only influences our mood, but also gives expression to our voice and allows us to be more creative. The more we are in our power, the more we see our life more clearly. Impaired Heart Function Energy can lead to vision projects, eye projects, mental confusion, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Heartlessness and Forgetfulness, etc. The heart is associated with the fifth depth, the highest principle of which is becoming who we really are and embracing our spiritual heritage. “The heart reminds us of love and helps us to accept and accept ourselves as we are. This deep acceptance of myself naturally makes it easier to accept and love other people as they are”. (Lebensphasen eines Menschlichen Wesens, p. 20 by Iole Lebensztajn)

Self-help applications for harmonizing the Heart Function Energy are:

  • Right hand on left SEL 11 and left hand on right SEL 17 (reverse for other half of body)

  •  hold the high SEL 19

  •  hold both SEL 15ths
  • hold the little fingers

„Love of humanity is the beginning of the knowledge of the Creator”. (What Mary Says, p. 10)

„Wisdom is love in action.“ (What Mary Says, p. 12)

Hands-On Tip: Main Central Vertical Flow – Continuation

Mary Burmeister refers to the Main Central Vertical Flow as “the Divine Presence in the Honorific Center of the Universe”.  We can harmonize this flow also by harmonizing “Safety” Energy Lock 26.

Be the no ATTIDUDES. BE the boundless. KNOW MYSELF IT IS.
(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister p. 63)

The Main Central Vertical Flow is that energetic force and action – that masculine principle, FIRE – which keeps us centered. Through the Breath, the exhale, we bring heaven down to earth; with the inhale  – earth to heaven. Can we imagine the Breath anywhere other than in our center or core?
Through knowing our Main Central, and giving ourselves the self-help sequence daily, its action feeds, fuels and harmonizes every molecule, organ system and Depth of our Being.
(Susan M. Brooks in 0 – 26, Excerpts from Main Central, p. 1)

Just hold center of left palm with the right hand and then center of right palm with the left hand.

Handteller ströme










Or hold all thumbs and fingers.

Hold right thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger and little finger with left hand, one by one.

Hold left thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger and little finger with right hand, one by one.

Or just fold the hands, be the SMILE, be the dropping of the shoulders.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 64)


I am energy force by receiving breath.

Receive and let go, but do not keep.

(What Mary says, p. 6)

Hands-On Tip: Quickie Main Central Vertical Flow – Continuation

The Main Central Vertical Harmonizing Energy (Universal) is our Source of Life. We are as harmonious or out of rhythm as is the energy supply from this source.

(Self Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister, p. 15)

Here is a simple quickie to be consistent with this source:

Place right finger, fingers or palm on top center of head.
Place left finger or fingers between the eyebrows.

The Main Central Flow harmonizes all glands in the body. It is my individual life force and is assigned to the fire element. It ignites the spiritual flame within me and makes me realize that I am a soul living in eternity. I am!

This first step (as described above) is also the anchor step of the entire flow sequence. With it we balance both the pineal gland and the pituitary gland. The pineal gland harmonizes the muscles, pigmentation of the skin, reacts to light exposure, influences day and night rhythm and regulates the absorption of light in the body. Mentally it is assigned to the world of the divine spirit and helps the development from the human to the divine being.

The pituitary gland promotes our growth and development, helps the function of the reproductive organs, thyroid and adrenal glands. Mentally it corresponds to the world of life spirit, our vitality. Helps with senility, strengthens memory, clears the head and goes deep into the brain.

The Main Central Flow is always available to us. It is always there like the sun and brings everything into vibration and consciousness in every cell.

“Simplify, glorify the Source.” (What Mary says, p. 6)


Hands-On Tip: Quickies for Main Central Vertical Flow

The Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy (described in Self Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister, p. 15 – 17) is our Source if Life. Without this flow the body would be lifeless. The Main Central Vertical Flow is descending the center of the front of the body, ascending the spine, flowing over the head […]

Hands-On Tip of the Week: Topic Fear


Cosmic Artless Art to KNOW (Help) Myself.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 1)

Jin Shin Jyutsu ist an Art of Living that also includes letting go of fear.

Mary gives us three simple finger positions that will remove tension which can create fear. This sequence can easily be applied into our daily life:


1. Wrap left thumb and fingers around the right thumb.

2. Wrap left thumb and fingers around the right index finger.

3. Wrap left thumb and fingers around right little finger.

(Please reverse every finger position for other side of the body.)

As a quickie just hold right index finger with left hand and left index finger with right hand.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 26/27)

To transcend fear, we need to feel and recognize who we really are.

But who are you?

You are a child of God. Making yourself small is not serving the world. We are all meant to shine like children do. We were born to manifest the splendor of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in every one of us!

(Nelson Mandela)

Paramahansa Yogananda puts it this way:

In Being the Creator sleeps, in flowers he dreams, in animals he comes to life and in humans he becomes conscious of himself.

Mary says: “God is in my fingers.” (What Mary says, p. 22)

Enjoy practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu!



Hands-On Tip of the Week: Continued from Strengthening the Immun Systeme

By holding the little finger we harmonize not only “Safety”Energy Lock # 15 (SEL 15) but also “Safety” Energy Lock # 25 (SEL 25)

Just holding the middle finger harmonizes SEL 3 and SEL 23.

SEl 23 and 25 are also very important to our immune system and take care of everything that needs to be done for our manifested body.

SEL 23 is the bridge from the physical to the energetic body, is important for maintaining a healthy, happy body and eliminates fear.

SEL 25 develops alertness and an energetic mind.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 61)

SEL 25 helps us relax, be calm and presently awake.

SEL 23 and 25 bring patience and release hatred and jealousy from the body. They help with any physical, emotional and mental stress.

KNOW MYSELF IT IS leads to universal knowledge. (Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 57)

Solutions to all “problems” reside within MYSELF. Self-knowledge IS KEY to all “problems”. (Self Help Book 2, p. 61)


Quickie for harmonizing SEL 23:

Hold left groin (SEL 15) with the left hand and left shoulder (SEL 3) with the right hand. Reverse for other side of the body.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 58)










Quickie for harmonizing SEL 25:

Hold right buttock (SEL 25) with the right hand and right shoulder (SEL 3) with the left hand. Reverse for other side of the body.

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 62)


I am power. I am energy force by receiving breath. (What Mary says, p. 7)
