This is article #14 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.
Mona Harris continues the series with her article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 49, Summer 2005:
Safety Energy Lock 12
I always wondered why Mary didn’t talk about the breath in Self-Help Book 1; whereas, she talks about it immediately in Book 3 on page 1, and on page 2 in Book 2.
Well, after years of looking at Self-Help Book 1, I finally saw it on page 12: “The awareness of the moment (the breath), one’s present state of being will become an art of LIVING.” This brings to mind the air element of the Supervisor flows which anchor on Safety Energy Lock 12.
Safety Energy Lock 12 “helps to keep from TRY-ing to DO and allows us to effortless BE.” This is one way of Mary describing Safety Energy Lock 12 in Self-Help Book 2. When we look at page 12 in Book 1, we find a reference to the “trying to” (little finger as helper for the attitude Pretense) as well as in Self-Help Book 3 (also page 12) with finger pose No. III: “It is one’s own attitudes that cause limitations, blockages, and keep one from being FUN.” Therefore, she reminds us to “unload all ATTITUDES…HAVE FUN,” while talking about Safety Energy Lock 12 in Self-Help Book 2.
“FUN – Fulfillment, Understanding, No-thing” are some of the words Mary gives us with safety Energy Lock 6 (2 x 6 = 12!) in Self-Help Book 2. Six is the number of 4th Depth (attitude Fear), and Mary told us that fear is the “core” of all attitudes. And what self-help recharge do we find in Book 2? Opposite 12 and coccyx – already known from Book 1, page 48 (4 + 8 = 12!): the first step of POSTERIOR DESCENDING energy (Bladder Flow). It’s the only hand position in Self-Help Book 2 that is the anchor step of an organ flow. This is also the last step of Kidney flow, both flows being part of 4th Depth.
The middle finger harmonizes Safety Energy Lock 12, and if we look through Self-Help Book 3, we find further indications of the power of holding the middle finger through all things related to it. Some of these we find on page 33 (3 + 3 = 6) in Self-Help Book 3. What I find exciting is at the bottom of that page: “simply getting to Know Myself, BE IT IS, IS.” (This, in effect, is “Not my will but Thy will.”) BE is FUN. FUN is to BE. BE in the flow – Be the FLOW – in the flow there is no accumulation – no-THING, nothing.” (The element of 4th Depth is water – flow.)
The color of twelve is pale blue and the only other place we see another pale color is pale yellow representing the zero. Zero represents the Main Central which is our personal source, and twelve is located at the level of the 4th cervical vertebra which on our answer sheet we know is 7th Depth, our universal source. Both of the pale colors are referring to our source which is unmanifested.
As we know from Text 1, page 18, Safety Energy Lock 12 harmonizes safety Energy Lock 14 – “thy will” harmonizes “my will”. And what does Mary write about safety Energy Lock 14 in book 2? “To do, just BE.”
So let’s do it – and “effortless BE!”
Thank you, Mona.
Thank you, Mary.
