Birgitta Meinhardt on Safety Energy Lock “3”

This is article #4 of a series of articles by our IT IS Seminar faculty on the Safety Energy Locks from a Self-help perspective. The series begins in Issue Number 36, Spring 2002, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter.

Birgitta Meinhardt continues the series with her article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 39, Winter 2003:

Safety Energy Lock “3”

Safety Energy Lock 3 is the door of life, the birthplace of the Mediator. 3 is the dance, the waltz, the movement, the activity. The rhythm of life is the 3/4 bar. 3 is our breathing specialist. As long as we breathe, we are able to move, we can walk on. This is defense against problems and discomforts. Not letting go makes us heavy, immovable and stiff. Then the attitudes appear. While dancing the waltz, we always see the things around us from a different perspective, always new. 3 dissolves and releases conflicts, and a new unity is formed – a structured unity, which becomes the fountain of life, 3rd Depth. 3 creates harmony, so development in general is possible.

During labor the lungs of the baby are squeezed together. 1 – exhale – as the baby is born, it has to inhale against a resistance; consciousness is created. 2 – to be able to truly live there has to be an exhale out of our free will in the right moment. 3 – in the confidence that allows us to be led, that lets things happen, that waits for the right moment, we are helped to receive a deep understanding of relationships. Intuitive certainty is to “UNLOAD” and “RECEIVE”. As we exhale all skepticisms and inhale our abundance, we help the lung and pelvic girdle, the place of all life.

In Self-Help Book II, Mary gives us the simple routine of holding the shoulder (3) and same side groin (15) to harmonize Safety Energy Lock 3. This same option is given for Safety Energy Locks 5, 6, 15 and 23. Each of these Safety Energy Locks appears on the circulation pathway of the Mediator. 5 speaks about putting off the old and putting on the new, 6 speaks about being in balance, 15 speaks about the joy and laughter in our life, and, or course, 23 speaks about responsibility.

The 3, the new one – beyond duality, is the birthplace of the Mediator, connecting left and right sides, front and back. In Self-Help Book I, Mary writes about the Mediator on page 18. “This is the ‘mediator’. Therefore, this energy is the cause for disharmony in the body. It is of vital importance to keep this energy functioning properly for the total supply of energy to the whole man.”

Thank you, Birgitta.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
