Feeling Blah

  1. 1. ==== ====How jin shin jyutsu can help YOU.http://goodhealthinanutshell.com/2011/11/03/ghian-good-health-in-a-nutshell-introduction-to-jin-shin-jyutsu/==== ====It occurred to me that I regularly write about maintaining a balance point but I have yet to describewhat that is. I also thought about the idea that many people who are far from their balance pointsare unaware of their situation and that they may have never experienced what a balanced life feelslike, so I thought that I would dedicate this column to a better understanding of what balance isand is not. First of all I want to state that I am not a perfectly balanced human being and that Idont aspire to that level of perfectionism, but I do have a sphere of balance that I like to live mylife within because it feels better than living in chaos. Sometimes I must learn to ride the wild horseof chaos as I shift to a new balance point, but harmony is my preferred state of being. As I try toexplain how balance manifests itself in ones life, I will start with describing what balance isnt.Some Signs That You May Be Out of BalancePhysical- sleep disorders- appetite imbalances- indigestion- extra weight in localized areas of the body- no lifestyle plan (nutrition, exercise etc.) in placeMental- fear & insecurity- anxiety & worry- hostility & frustration- unrealistic goals & expectationsEmotional- frequently impulsive- always feeling in a hurry- uncontrollable expression of emotions- stuck in a predominant single emotion- small problems seem insurmountable- addictionsSpiritual- feeling lost or disconnected- unable to remember dreams- frequent nightmares
  2. 2. - overly self-centered- lack of at least one spiritual practice- addictionsAnd here is a peek into what balanced living is like. Some Signs of Being in Balance:Physical- regular sleep patterns- appetite correlates to physical activity level- evenly distributed body weight- efficient metabolism & digestive system- aware of lifestyle needs to maintain balanceMental- Calmness of mind- A relaxed outlook on life- Self-confidence- A good, healthy perspective on life- Understanding of life and ourselves- Being happy and comfortable with ourselvesEmotional- able to feel & express a full range of emotions- evenly paced- problems approached as challenges and opportunities for growth- emotions perceived as guidelines for balanced living- self directedSpiritual- feeling supported & purposeful- being in the right place at the right time- self awareness- understanding the connectedness of all life- regular synchronicities- resiliencyThese are general markers for balance or imbalance, and everyone has idiosyncrasies that mayneed to be a part of their balanced life, even when no one else understands that need. A state ofbalance is ever changing and fluid, like the weather. The four categories, physical, mental,emotional & spiritual, are listed separately but they are inseparable. They are like the fourlegs of a chair, without one of them the chair is unstable and cannot fulfill its purpose. Jugglingthese four aspects of ourselves is a full time, life-long job. Our parents demonstrate some of theways to live as we are growing, but as an adult, it becomes our responsibility to learn how to carefor ourselves in a healthy way. So where do we begin to discern what works for us? Follow yourinterests and instincts.There is a reason that you are interested in something - it is calling to you. Perhaps you will learnthat it is something that adds great dimension to your life, or that it offers only empty promises, but
  3. 3. you have still learned something by giving yourself the opportunity to explore it. Every once in awhile ask yourself if you are following your inner clues to build a balanced life or if you areoperating on auto pilot following the cultural norm or running away from opportunities for growththat may be challenging. You can talk to respected friends and family members for lifestyle advice,but you are your best guide because you live with yourself and you are the one to experience theoutcome of your decisions.Healing and growth processes often involve stepping out of, sliding off of, or crashing out of yourfamiliar balance state to enable you to experience life fully and then make new choices foryourself. A perpetual, unchanging state of balance, which I personally call a rut, can maintainstatus quo for quite a while, especially if you are someone who does not like change, but if it is notin line with your life purpose some part of your life will unravel to make room for the change togrow.Some people are gypsies and have no fixed address by choice, others are home bodies who knowevery nuance of their home and land because they have lived there for their entire life. Others fallsomewhere in between these extremes, and these are all good life choices if they are in line withthe individuals soul purpose. My point is that life balance is an individual recipe that cannot becopied or borrowed from another.Spiritual practices such as meditation and yoga assist one to develop their self awareness andclear away confusion. They help to balance the energies in all four sectors of life. Jin ShinJyutsu(R) is another practice that ramps up the self-awareness factor - translated directly intoEnglish Jin Shin Jyutsu(R) is "divine expression of a compassionate, aware human". Jin ShinJyutsu(R) offers a self-healing component that can help you to stay in touch with your personallifestyle needs and maintain your interconnectedness to all of life. To try a little Jin Shin Jyutsu(R)for yourself to clarify what your lifestyle ingredients are, you may want to keep your Safety EnergyLock 14s open. The Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 14s assist us to understand how to live life fullyand balanced as a human being. The SEL 14s are found on each side of the body, on the front ofthe torso, just below the curve of the ribcage.By holding these SELs gently with your fingertips for five minutes 3 to 4 times a day you willactivate them and help your lifestyle light bulbs to turn on. You might find a renewed sense ofmotivation to stick to a healthy regime, you may become aware of choices that dont fit youanymore and you may find yourself trying new things that you have never dared try before. Whathave you got to lose? A little time away from the key board, remote control or game controllermight start a new adventure for you.copyright Sally Joyce 2009"Every day we are engaged in a miracle!"Sally Joyce, OCT B.E.S., B.Ed.Wellness & Empowerment PractitionerBALANCE POINT ENERGETICS149 St. Clair StreetChatham, Ontario
