Worried? Fearful? Angry? Sad? “Trying to” appear one way on the outside when you feel another way on the inside? Use WFAST to reduce emotional overwhelm in your life.
Each finger in Jin Shin Jyutsu® Japanese acupressure harmonizes a specific emotion, known as an attitude in JSJ. Harmonizing shifts emotions to a more manageable intensity so you can consciously decide what to do next.
Harmonize each attitude by holding the W, F, A, S, or T finger of either hand. You can either enclose the entire finger with the fingers of your other hand or make a circle with the thumb over the fingernail of the finger in question. For the thumb you can tuck your thumb into the curled fingers of the same hand instead of making a circle.
How long to hold each finger? Thirty-six exhales and inhales is a good option. Or pick a fixed length of time, perhaps five minutes. Or do it until you feel relief. Happy WFAST-ing!
