This is a simple exercise that will take care of the harmful effects of long distance travel, sometimes called jet lag. It will also work for long distance car travel, or any other kind of travel.
The exercise is from Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient Oriental healing art. It was originally taught in America by Mary Burmeister in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is now taught by her son and daughter-in-law, and other teachers they have trained.
It is an entire science, and this exercise is just one of many exercises recommended. Two small books by Mary Burmeister describe it in much more detail and are available wherever books are sold.
Jin Shin Jyutsu and its spinoffs in America are not part of nutritional balancing science. The reason is they do not move energy down the body from head to toe. This is unfortunate, but true. For this reason, please do not do the drag exercise any more than is needed. However, it can be a lifesaver when it is needed.
THE DRAG EXERCISE
One simply holds one finger at a time with the opposite hand. This is done by wrapping all the fingers around one finger at a time of one hand, and then moving to the other hand and doing the same thing.
For each finger, hold for about three to four seconds. In some cases, you will feel a slight settling or pulse or tingling when the energy moves through the fingers properly.
The keys are:
1. Wrap all the fingers around each of the fingers of the other hand, one at a time.
2. When you hold a finger, hold the entire finger, all the way down to its base knuckle.
3. Hold for three or four seconds.
4. The sequence – where you begin – does not seem to matter. However, you must hold all fingers of both hands eventually.
5. This must be done at least once every hour during your trip. It can be done a little more often, if you wish. Doing it less often causes it to work much slower, meaning that you must hold each finger longer.
6. You do not have to squeeze the finger with the fingers of the other hand. Just hold the finger.
7. You can do the exercise sitting, lying down, or even standing up. It does not matter.
HOW IT WORKS
When one travels fast, especially over a long distance, the two etheric energy fields of a person separate slightly. This causes the fatigue, dizziness in some cases, and other symptoms of drag or jet lag.
This exercise actually updates and brings together the two etheric bodies or etheric energy fields of a person. It does this by connecting certain energy channels in the body. When this occurs, the symptoms go away.
