What can we do if we feel stagnation choking us? Safety Energy Lock 1‘s function is Movement. Mary Burmeister called it the Prime Mover. Wayne Hackett tells a story about a lady who lost weight by holding her SEL 1 for a year. You know, to get the energetic circulation moving and clearing blocks.
Safety Energy Lock 1 can indeed pull energy that is stuck above the waist downward. It connects what is above with what is below. But it goes beyond the obvious. It also helps us get out of stagnation and into movement again.
Here is a three-step sequence to open Safety Energy Lock 1. It comes from p. 15 of Mary Burmeister’s Textbook 1.
Follow wisdom (2) and begin moving (1)
Place your left hand on the back at the left SEL 2 and your right hand on the left SEL 1.
In movement, there is no place for fear (5) or judgment (7)
After 3-5 minutes or when you feel a rhythmic pulsation in both hands, move the right hand to the left SEL 5. After several more minutes, end with the right hand on the left SEL 7.
If you wish to harmonize the right side, here is the Right Side Sequence.
