Aino Meinhardt offers an article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter issue from Summer 2008, Number 61 about her understanding of Safety Energy Lock 23. This, and all issues of The Main Central, are available at http://www.jsjinc.net.
From Self-Help Book II by Mary Burmeister: “’23’ came into the universe meaning proper circulation maintenance…Harmonizes(s) blood circulation, brain functions; physical agility and frustrations. …Techniques in themselves are false securities.”
Regarding this, I find in Self-Help Book III on page 7, the following written by Mary “It is the ‘transcending or rising above or beyond the limitations of technique’ to be able to KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS…One already has the KEYS. All one needs is the awareness, the understanding…FEAR is the result of lack of the awareness, the understanding!”
Safety Energy Lock 23 is the only Safety Energy Lock in 4th Depth. When the 4th Depth is out of harmony, FEAR is generated.
“Awareness and understanding of each of the ‘Safety’ Energy Locks are the KEYS to security. …KNOW MYSELF IT IS leads to universal knowledge. … AIDS: clear-thinking; temper tantrums; selfishness; adrenal function tension/stress.” – Self-Help Book II
The adrenals produce cortisol, which is an anti-inflammatory, and adrenalin, the stress hormone.
The human genetic make-up consists of a double set of 23 (23+23) chromosomes. The 23rd one decides our sex.
The 23 is connected to addiction or obsession. Addiction is a sort of search; it is a fruitless search. The 23 helps us to get out of the vicious cycle and back into development.
A poem I see in relationship to the 23 is from the work of Rainer Maria Rilke:
I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years and I still don’t know;
am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
The 23 is located left and right from Thoracic Vertebra 12. TV 12 is related to the Liver Function Energy and corresponds with the sign Pisces. One of the attributes of the sign Pisces and therefore of the Liver Function Energy is “belief” – the human being who takes responsibility for his life in his own hands, who takes over responsibility for his BEING.
