We are continuing to read about Safety Energy Lock 17 from issue Number 20, Spring 1998. Here is what Jed Schwartz shared about his experience of SEL 17:
I sit holding my 17’s waiting and hoping for the germination of an idea for this issue of The Main Central. This is one of the functions of 17, as I remember Mary sharing in class. I’m getting very relaxed – mind emptying – and a wonderful peacefulness fills me as I become aware of 17 flowing through me.
Seventeen is located in the valley between the two bumps on the back of the little finger side of the wrist. Certain practices of meditation utilize S.E.L. 17 by resting the wrists with the palms facing upward on the knees, which are in a cross leg or seated position. These postures are supposed to help facilitate a positive openness for meditation, contemplation and reflection.
S.E.L. 17 relates to spirit as well as to reproduction, similar to S.E.L. 13. Seventeen is spirit, the soul; and being an ascending Safety Energy Lock and on the Mediator, it brings forth the action of spirit ascending. Thirteen – the fertility specialist – is a descending Safety Energy Lock and is spirit descending into form.
I remember a client who had great anxiety and a history of mental-emotional stress: she would always fidget by wringing (circling) her wrists, first one and then the other, whether standing, sitting or lying down. She said that the greater the anxiety, the faster she would do this ritual in order to soothe herself. When I held her 17’s, they were throbbing with a rapid pulse. The suggestion to consciously hold S.E.L. 17 while exhaling helped to soothe her more effectively and activated 17’s harmonizing power.
I am now being the experience of 17, helping creative thinking. Enjoy being 17!
