(Self-Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 12)
“Safety” Energy Lock # 1 came into the unvierse with the meaning “prime mover” and is located a the inner side of the knee. If we get stuck in any project, holding SEL 1 helps us get everything moving again (on all levels).
It connects the toes to the head and the head to the toes, thus helping both breathing and all head projects. It can also have a very liberating effect on abdominal projects (flatulence).
All projects above the waist can descend by holding the SEL 1.
The supervisor flows arise in SEL 1. SEL 1 is also named the “leader” of all “safety”energy locks and all depths go through SEL 1. As you can see it is a very important SEL.
There are many interesting testimonials about holding the ones for a whole year (1 hour daily or 3 x 20 minutes daily). Maybe you just try it out yourself and write your own story about it….
For self-help just hold SEL 1, also cross over or just hold your thumbs!
Have fun practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu!
