This is article #26 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.
Janet Oliver continues the series with her article in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 62, Fall 2008:
Safety Energy Lock 24
Mary tells us in Self-Help Book 2 that Safety Energy Lock 24 harmonizes all chaos within for complete peace of mind and body. It facilitates our journey of spiritual awakening. Born within Fifth Depth, Safety Energy Lock #24 connects us with our heart energy, allowing us to BE our true selves.
In my own journey, Safety Energy Lock 24 became a dearest friend in my return to health from a severe toxic exposure that left me debilitated for a few years. I have always been an enthusiastic user of my self-help jumper cables, enjoying the feeling of the pulses and the dynamic stillness created through self-help. Following the toxic exposure, to my surprise and disappointment, my energy would not move, and my pulses did not come. My Safety Energy Locks were stuck, stuck, stuck. I knew at some point that I would be grateful for this journey, for all the blessings of learning from this experience, however, especially in the first months, I could not find the feelings of gratitude or inner peace at all. I simply sat and held my thumbs and fingers, waiting for the familiar pulsations and harmony to show up.
Then, in this process, I found that holding Safety Energy Lock 24 with Center Safety Energy Lock 13 (on the sternum) would open the doorway to the pulsations and the return to health. Safety Energy Lock 13 eased me into loving my enemies (including myself!) without judgment, while Safety Energy Lock 24 allowed me to surrender into Spirit and feel the unconditional love of the Creator. It left me feeling peaceful and calm, able to BE with the life and health challenges and to accept these challenges gratefully as a part of life on this earth plane.
Also, utilizing the Self-Help Main Central to balance the left and right sides of the body, followed by holding Safety Energy Lock 24 with the opposite side Safety Energy Lock 26 (both sides, three times), brought needed relief to my body, mind and spirit. With this self-help, I could BREATHE. The chaos in my wrist pulses subsided. Mary writes in the margin of Self-Help Book 2, page 59, that describes Safety Energy Lock 24, “UNLOAD (exhale) all the dirt, dust and greasy grime. RECEIVE (inhale) the abundance.” As the days, weeks, and months passed, I would come to deeper and deeper understanding of her words, as practicing this self-help gave me the direct experience in my own body, mind, and spirit.
The 24th letter in the alphabet is “X”. Draw a diagonal line from the left Safety Energy Lock 26 to the right Safety Energy Lock 24 and a diagonal line from the right Safety Energy Lock 26 to the left Safety Energy Lock 24, and you will see these diagonal lines form “X”. To enhance brain function and maintenance, it has been found that balancing the left and right sides of the brain (and body) may be accomplished by swinging each arm across the midline of the body (forming “X”), walking by stepping across the midline with each foot (forming “X”), drawing “X”, and gazing at “Xs” wherever you find them.
The relationship between Safety Energy Locks 24 and 26 appears again in Self-Help Book 2, page 59, as the holding both left and right safety Energy Locks 26 (our big hug) is a self-help for Safety Energy Lock 24. On page 60 of this book, another “quickie” self-help recharge for Safety Energy Lock 24 is holding Safety Energy Lock 26 with Safety Energy Lock 15, which is the last step of the Safety Energy Lock 26 pattern in Text 1, on page 36. While Safety Energy Lock 24 harmonizes the chaos in the head and body, Safety Energy Lock 26 is total and complete, helping the past, present, and future come together into the present moment. Together, these two Safety Energy Locks balance the left and right sides of the brain and body, bringing us to dynamic stillness. In this stillness, we may perceive eternal splendor, limitless light and abundance, and BE in rhythm with the luminous pulsation of universal consciousness, to be transformed and KNOW what it is to be ONE with the Creator.
