Matthias Roth on SEL 14

Matthias Roth shares his experience of Safety Energy Lock 14 in the Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter Number 17, Summer 1997:

14 is Man. It is the mind.

“In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.”

Heaven, 13, is created first. Then Earth, 15. At last, Man, 14. So it is in the order of Creation, the manifesting: first the surface flows, meeting at central 13, are created. Then the deep flows, meeting at central 15. The last to enter the realm of manifestation is Man, the middle flows, with central 14 as a meeting place.

In the unmanifest, Creator worked up to this. A to M (1-13) is His own story. N-Z (14-26) is the story of Man. 14, the mind, stands at the beginning of our story. It is the source of all bondage and the source of all liberation. Look at what the mind inherits from Creator: He begins His story as One, Prime Mover. He ends it on a powerful Thirteen, Love thine enemies. He says – see that all is one!

Now it is up to man. At the waistline, man’s horizon: how broad will it be? Will he make it a meeting place or a dividing line between the heavens and the earth? At the waistline, fourteen lives as man’s free will. At the waistline, it lives as Sagittarius, feet firmly rooted to the ground (body), eyes and arrow (vision and intention) turned upward (to spirit). This perfect Man between the heavens and the earth is equilibrium – the tightrope walk between the worlds of matter and of spirit. This perfect poise means sustenance, the mysterious capacity to feel nourished and sustained from both worlds.

Between the fourteen’s lies the solar plexus as gateway to the “solar ethers” – the Seventh Depth. Between the fourteen’s lies the stomach, receptacle for our physical foods. With a tight 14 we will feel lacking in the solar plexus and the stomach, and will stuff the latter to appease the former. Worldly stresses, Mary tells us, are harmonized by 14. Keeping up with the Jones’, greed for power and possessions – what are these but feelings of not being connected to the Universal Source?

A full 14 makes for a full head. Food for thought! We are reminded that digestion begins in the head. Thoughts for food. A full stomach makes thinking difficult, but a full head makes digestion impossible.

In Mark 7:14(!)-16, the importance of 14 is well explained: “Hear me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a man which by going into him can defile him; but the things which come out of a man are what defile him.” No food or thought that goes into us can make us ill or “impure”. How it comes out, i.e., how we digest it, is “the proof of the pudding”.

In fourteen, man digests and understands. 14 is the quintessential picture of man: when in harmony, he connects the dimensions; when out of balance, he cuts them off. Then life becomes a snoring nightmare. Your position and your bare subsistence start giving you a headache until they have you on your knees. What used to be so soft and round is just becoming fat and heavy.

Be “hold your right finger”, and loose the ties of negativity and of attachment that make you blind to the perfection that you are. Have you discovered fourteen-symptoms? Or “arrow” – routes to freedom…

I’m thinking about…


Elizabeth Ann
Said to her Nan:
“Please will you tell me how God began?
Somebody must have made Him. So
Who could it be, ‘cos I want to know?”
And Nurse said, “Well!”
And Ann said, “Well?
I know you know, and I wish you’d tell.”
And Nurse took pins from her mouth, and said,
“Now then, darling, it’s time for bed.”

Elizabeth Ann
Had a wonderful plan:
She would run round the world till she found a man
Who knew exactly how God began.

She got up early, she dressed, and ran
Trying to find an Important Man.
She ran to London and knocked at the door
Of the Lord High Doodelum’s coach-and-four.
“Please, sir (if there’s anyone in),
However-and-ever did God begin?”

The Lord High Doodelum lay in bed,
But out of the window, large and red,
Came the Lord High Coachman’s face instead.
And the Lord High Coachman laughed and said:
“Well, what put that in your quaint little head?”

Elizabeth Ann went home again
And took from the ottoman Jennifer Jane.
“Jenniferjane,” said Elizabeth Ann,
“Tell me at once how God began.”
And Jane, who didn’t much care for speaking,
Replied in her usual way by squeaking.

What did it mean? Well, to be quite candid,
I don’t know, but Elizabeth Ann did.
Elizabeth Ann said softly, “Oh!
Thank you, Jennifer. Now I know.”

Lynne Pflueger on SEL 14

Lynne Pflueger shares her experience of Safety Energy Lock 14 in the Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 17 from the Summer of 1997:

Fourteen is Sustenance and Equilibrium speaking to us on the pulse level as Stomach Function Energy and Gall Bladder Function Energy. Stomach digests that which we ingest through the mouth and gall bladder that which we ingest through the eyes. There are many forms of sustenance.

“Man lives upon life. Some parts are nourished by the sun, the influence of the stars, the energy in the atmosphere, and also invisible fountains of nutrition by which the mind and spirit are nourished.” – Mary Burmeister.

Fourteen is also Intelligence of Probation. This means that we learn and reach moderation and equilibrium through experience. Knowing is a word used frequently in Jin Shin Jyutsu. For example, Now Know Myself, or the Art of the Creator through Compassionate (Knowing) Man. To KNOW is to develop certainty through experience.

Fourteen is Vibration. Therefore according to the vibration of each of our 14’s we will attract experiences to digest and to teach us as we walk step by step through our lives. Vibration can be managed through mental control. Where is our focus? Are we competing, comparing, focused on worldly desires, frustrated that wishes are not granted or worried that dreams will not come to fruition? Or are we using our minds as they are intended, to be a receiver, our link to the Creator?

Albert Einstein said, “I only want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.” Each experience is a valuable step in the evolution of understanding. Dr. Paul Foster Case, in The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages states as follows: “We do nothing of ourselves. The Holy Guardian Angel makes all the tests and trials which lead us along the path of attainment. Know this, but act as if you were making the tests yourself. The only correction necessary is the intellectual correction. For practical purposes, he wise man acts just as if he were doing things ‘on his own’. He KNOWS better, that’s all.” Every life experience then is perfect. There is no judgment.

On the physical plan my thoughts go to nutrition in the form of food. Are first depth worries leading me to start the morning with something sugary to sweeten my day? Or are third depth frustrations and anger leading me to a large dollop of butter to ensure a smooth day? Will I eat too much, reflecting worries that life is a glass that is half empty? The nutrition I seek is simply a reflection of my attitudes. The nutrition I attract is simply a reflection of my attitudes. By jumper cabling thumb, worries are transmuted into trust, just as holding middle finger transforms frustration and control into surrender.

Sweetness comes from within not requiring sugar from without.

Surrender does not require the extra measure of fat to ensure sooth functioning of the mind and body.

In all of life, there is nothing but vibration.

Fourteen stands between heaven and earth. Understanding through experience will allow spirit to descend into matter and life will truly be heaven on earth.

I’m thinking…

…about my posts today in “All About Mary” and “Jin Shin Jyutsu”.

It is my experience and observation that it is not always easy to love those that love us.
Those darn 7 deadly sins in my nature!
That so difficult word: “unconditional”!

Family, friend or foe…it’s all about me until I have a spiritual awakening that it is not all about me at all!

After more than half a century of space-time, I understand life is about love and service to all who have life.

Since the little atom in the rock has energetic movement just as plants, animals, fish, birds, insects, people…everything has “life”, it behooves me to love and serve all creation.

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.” – Cree Indian saying

“When The Power of Love Overcomes the Love of Power Then the World Will Know Peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

“The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they’re still alive.” – O. A. Battista, scientist and writer

Guess I’ll be the fountain today…
