Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure relies heavily on numbers, especially with the twenty-six numbered Safety Energy Locks (SELs). As seen in the table below, SELs 1 through 9 support your physical body, 10 through 18 harmonize your mental body, and 19 through 26 aid your spiritual body. The complexity of JSJ makes it hard to carry the generalization too far, however, since SEL 10 helps knees and SEL 26 supports releasing accumulations such as tumors and cysts, for example.
Each SEL in a given column corresponds to the base number in the first row of that column. In other words SEL 1, 10, and 19 all share the base number 1 and so on. In my last blog post, I discussed the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of SELs 2, 11, and 20 which share a base number of 2.
Some time ago I wrote a “Safety Energy Lock Prayer” which may give you insight into the character of each SEL as well as the connection between the points sharing a base number. You read the prayer from 1 through 26 but the format here reflects the shared base numbers in each row.
|1- Please help me to let go||10- Please help me receive your abundance||19- So I can accept my responsibility and authority|
|2- To grow and expand||11- Unloading my baggage||20- To help me see my way in life|
|3- And relate||12- So I can follow thy will and not my will||21- Please help me become mentally free|
|4- So I may live consciously||13- Loving all beings||22- Adapting happily|
|5- Bringing my spirit into my human form||14- Maintaining my equilibrium and being sustained||23- Embracing my human destiny|
|6- Please help me live in balance||15- So I can be happy and content||24- Harmonizing chaos|
|7- Being victorious||16- Please help me break old patterns||25- So that I may be still|
|8- So I can know the magic in life||17- So I can open my heart to my intuitive self||26- Enjoying total peace and harmony|
|9- Being totally and completely fulfilled||18- Calming my mind|
Do any Safety Energy Locks speak to you? Right now I spend a lot of time with my friend SEL 14 which supports nourishment of all kinds.
