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.
