Emotional States

“Emotional states” are an important part of Jin Shin Jyutsu, even when seeking help for a physical problem, as they are linked.  The organ system pairs have associated emotions, and when they are out of balance, your emotions suffer.  Here are the basics:

spleen/stomach……………..nervousness, anxiety

lung/large intestine…………sadness, grief, depression

liver/gall bladder…………….anger, irritation, rage

kidney/bladder……………….chronic fear, panic, shock

heart/small intestine……….critical nature (self or others), trying too hard, not being comfortable in your own skin

◊◊◊

JSJ helps relieve these tensions.  In fact, just holding your own fingers can help tremendously.

spleen/stomach……………..thumb

lung/large intestine…………ring finger

liver/gall bladder…………….middle finger

kidney/bladder……………….index finger

heart/small intestine……….little finger

◊◊◊

Which hand?  Hold either side, whichever feels better or natural.  When in doubt, hold the left ones.

◊◊◊

There’s a reason most babies suck their thumbs, since stomach/spleen is a “baby” need.  Sometimes a baby will suck other fingers.  In that case, they have a special energy need in another part of the body.

We never outgrow the need to energize through our fingers.   Toes work too, but that’s another story!
