Living the Art with Safety Energy Lock 17
The phone rang. i picked it up. “Come as fast as you can”, I heard my dear friend Bobby say. “I’ve had a heart attack, and I’m here in the hospital. Come right away.”
Immediately, I went to the airport to fly one hour to Los Angeles. Upon entering the hospital, I was told by the nurses that Bobby’s pulse rate was way too high, over 200 beats per minute. They said that nothing they did was working to slow it down, and would I please help him to calm down and slow down his heart rate. They indicated that if his heart rate did not slow down, he would probably not live.
I found Bobby agitated, wildly upset at having had a heart attack. He had been moved from one hospital to another, and he generally felt that “everyone was trying to kill him.” The nurses looked extremely harried, and I knew his strong, dominant personality had challenged them to the limit. Gently, I sat at his bedside, and held his wrist (Safety Energy Lock 17).
Bobby was hooked up to a heart monitor, so I could watch as his heart rate slowly returned to normal. The nurses came in. “Thank you.” they said. “We were hoping you could help, and when you finish with him, it’s our turn.
As long as I held his Safety Energy Lock 17, his pulse was steady and normal speed. Whenever I let go, his heart rate would skyrocket upwards. So I sat with Bobby for three days, gently holding his wrist and learning the power of Safety Energy Lock 17.
Safety Energy Lock 17 is an ascending Safety Energy Lock, born on the Diagonal Mediator. It is located in the hollow between two joints at the little finger side of the wrist. The Small Intestine Function Energy flows through the wrists at seventeen, and the Heart Function Energy flows nearby at the inner aspect of the wrist. For Bobby, I held the whole area. As the days went by, I held his fingers as well.
Safety Energy Lock 17 is Natural Intelligence, intuition and creative power. I watched these traits emerging from deep within Bobby, as the days passed. He is a singer and songwriter, and he sang new songs that expressed the deep passion in his heart, now soft and open.
There are many, many testimonies of utilizing Safety Energy Lock 17 for self-help in relaxing the mind and nerves. Safety Energy Lock 17 is easy to hold on ourselves. Even in public, without being noticed, we can hold Safety Energy Lock 17, by placing one hand over the little finger side of the other wrist. We may even hold Safety Energy Lock 17 unobtrusively with our hands behind our backs. It really helps in our daily lives, and many have utilized it when nervous about public speaking.
Mary tells us in Self-Help Book 2, page 46, that we may hold the ring finger or the little finger for a “QUICKIE” Self-Help recharge of Safety Energy Lock 17. The ring finger is our Second Depth finger, helping us to BREATHE, and it is the finger associated with Safety Energy Lock 17 as listed on our chart. The little finger is along the pathway of the Diagonal Mediator, the Heart and Small Intestine Function Energies, and the Little Finger Function Energy, as is Safety Energy Lock 17.
One student told me that she had had a manic depression project. A friend had given her the Self-Help Books. She was too agitated to read the books, but she saw the pictures and started by holding her thumb and fingers, and experienced a sense of tranquility overcoming her anxiety. When depressed, she held her thumb and fingers, and felt herself lift to a state of inner peace. Then, as time went on, she discovered that holding Safety Energy Lock 17 resulted in maintaining a stable calm and mental clarity day after day.
As a Living the Art instructor, I have enjoyed so much hearing the testimonies about Safety Energy Lock 17. Students have utilized Safety Energy Lock 17 to calm their nerves at the dentist. One student held Safety Energy Lock 17 to neutralize her nervous reaction to the clanging, banging sounds of an MRI machine. Another student held Safety Energy Lock 17 for her ankle injury, as Safety Energy Lock 17 is Aquarius, for ankles. Yet another student experienced that Safety Energy Lock 17 helps him to gain mental-emotional clarity; he holds Safety Energy Lock 17 whenever he is in a difficult situation and needs to know what is the right path or action for him to take. Another student held Safety Energy Lock 17 to melt away her breast project. Safety Energy Lock 17 is all of this, and more.
Thank you, Janet.
