the participation of the conscious
in the spontaneous communication
Our revolutionary human nature provides us with another resource: to let our consciousness follow the communication we establish with our spontaneous sensitivity. Yuki allows our conscious to pay attention to the communication with our own spontaneous sensitivities or with those of somebody else, especially through our hands.
The event in the history of evolution that made our hands free was crucial in the process of the energetic conversion in the human species. Without our hands, we would not have been able to make tools. This was the turning point that lead to the increase of our psychic activity and to the development of our consciousness and culture. No other species underwent such evolution. Our hands are very useful in helping us increase the communication with our own sensitivity and that of others since they are the tools directly handled by our brains and by our consciousness.
Actually, we all know about the participation of our hands in this type of communication. For example:
When we have stomach ache or tooth ache, we spontaneously place one of both of our hands on our abdomens or cheeks. When we feel our necks stiff, we are hardly aware of our fingers going to this specific area. When we feel down, as if there were no energy left in the lower area of our abdomens, we hold them with both our forearms. If we feel sad we take our hands to the centre of our chests. When a child or a young person is deeply concentrated when taking an exam they place their hands on their heads. When somebody is deeply disappointed or distressed we show our sympathy by placing our hands on their backs. We hold the hand of a sick person to let him feel he is not alone…
This instinctive and unique capacity of our nature has also been used elsewhere under different approaches and for different purposes (healing, energetic, spiritual…). Noguchi realised that using our hands with the simple aim of being with the sensitivity of our organism helps us restore its width and the richness of its spontaneous manifestation.
Yuki can be applied on any area of the CVP or on the limbs. When it is practised with another person, the receiver usually lies on his stomach and the actor sits by the former’s left side placing both of his hands on the receiver’s back. The attitude of the actor is to perceive and communicate with the other person’s sensitivity by letting his own intuition and sensitivity guide his hands.
As the practice of yuki advances, the actor can perceive the state the organism of the receiver is in. This is possible by paying attention to the receiver’s breathing, inner vibration, heat or cold, the degree of stiffness in his tissues, the state of his psyche… The receiver can feel that some areas on his axis are stiff (something that he could not feel before) whilst he starts to perceive a state of well being in those areas that are being attended and the activity of his psyche easing.
As the communication between the receiver’s and the actor’s sensitivities increases and reaches complete coordination, (through rhythm, vibration, breathing, hand pressure, angle, area…) the areas where the EPT had accumulated become more active and thus they can have their natural movements restored.
The consequence of this practice is that the tissues and organs that were under the EPT regain their mobility and the over-excitation of the psychic activity related to them decreases. The receiver can feel the natural state of his own being since he has recovered his vitality and his health. It should be strongly emphasised that this recovery is not due to any attempt to attain some relaxation or balance, to cure or heal, but it is the consequence of simply getting concentrated on the practice of yuki.
The practice of katsugen and yuki is very simple and it does not require any complicated techniques or any previous knowledge. Yuki is about regaining and nurturing some capacity that belongs to us and that we all have.
We should practice katsugen and yuki with the only objective of guiding our conscious to communicate with our spontaneous movement and with the sensitivity of our own human nature.
Gyoki is the eastern traditional practice and it means to exercise the ki. The practice of gyoki can be either simple and easy or complex and highly methodic. The aim is to restore the width of the natural chest-abdominal breathing that gets reduced by the action of the EPT.
In the seitai culture, gyoki is practised together with katsugen undo and yuki. This combined practice makes gyoki very simple.
