Lynne Pflueger on SEL 17

In issue Number 20, Spring 1998, Lynne Pflueger, Jed Schwartz and Waltraud Riegger-Krause share their experience of Safety Energy Lock 17.

Let us read what Lynne Pflueger shared:

Seventeen is intuition. The word intuition reduces numerologically to two. Two is Wisdom. 17/8 is magic. One of the many aspects of living the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu has taught me to listen to the magic of my intuition. Now, I realize my intuition has always been present. In the past I would dismiss it as nonsense, not to be taken seriously as it was unsupported by intellectual knowledge. G.K. Chesterton said, “You can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it.”

Consulting the dictionary I find that intuition is: direct perception of facts, truths, etc. independent of any reasoning process; as immediate cognition of an object not inferred or determined by a previous cognition of same object; or pure, untaught, non-inferential knowledge. On the title page of Text I, Mary refers to “…unencumbered communion with the Creator”. For me this is my intuition talking to me through my mind. The mind is man’s link to the Creator. Seventeen is on the Mediator flow. Mediator will clear the mind of attitudes so that it will be still to receive.

In the tarot, seventeen is the Star, relating to meditation. Dr. Paul Foster Case, in his book The Tarot; A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages, says about 17, “It has been defined as an unbroken flow of knowledge in a particular object…It is a fishing for truth in the depths of the sub-consciousness…It shows the method whereby knowledge of the Great Secret is attained…When we stop thinking, Truth unveils itself to us.” What simple magic to meditate while jumper-cabling energy lock 17, patiently listening for thoughts from the Creator. Mary says, “Just BE and the answer will come.”

Seventeen is reproductive energy. We have the ability to reproduce externally or internally. Life is always flowing and changing. Our cells die and reproduce themselves. 17 is Aquarius which governs the ankles. Energy locks 5 and 16 live on the ankles. Five is putting off the old and putting on the new. Sixteen is transformation; breaking down of existing forms for new ones. Jumper cabling 17 then will help 5 and 16 move us into new perceptions, new thinking, new ways of acting. Studying the Viking Runes, Ralph Blum states that Rune number 17 is movement. This is a rune of transit and transition. Numerologically, the word seventeen reduces to One. One is the prime mover! Jin Shin Jyutsu is awesomely simple magic.
