Energetic or Subtle Energy





            Definition of energy locks. 


1. Ways that our bodies alter themselves to survive by reducing the level, degree or amount of complexity in their structure. 

2. Adaptations or compensations that lock up the body’s movement or ability in some way, but they allow the body to keep going.

              3. Backup systems, emergency systems, crutches, or fail safe systems that keep the body alive when it is weak, malnourished or out of balance in some other way.  They do this by “locking up” or tying up some of the body’s functions, simplifying the body sructure or functions in some way.


            Our bodies are loaded with these emergency or fail safe systems.  It is part of the beautiful design of the body to maintain its survival.


              A need for more attention.  There is a need to pay more attention to the crutches our bodies use to maintain themselves in the face of malnutrition and stress.  For example, the body can use raising the blood pressure, raising the blood sugar, raising the temperature, holding on to negative emotions, and more in order to maintain itself.

            Too often, doctors of all kinds just label these compensations as symptoms or diseases, and seek to suppress them.  A better approach would be to understand them as compensations or energy locks, and find out underlying causes that result in them.




              Energy locks in the body can be biochemical, psychological or of a subtle energy nature.  Let us discuss each of them.




Our bodies have numerous biochemical energy lock systems that keep it going in the face of overwhelming stress, malnutrition, disease and other conditions.  The study of these is part of nutritional balancing science.


Crutches.  Biochemical locks are basically the same as the idea on this website of crutches.  A crutch is something that holds you up if you are weak, until you can regain your strength and stand up on your own.  For details about this concept, read Crutches on this website.


The oxidation rate.  A normal oxidation rate is flexible.  It increases or decreases depending on the needs of the body. 

However, if the body becomes malnourished, it will “lock up” and become essentially stuck in fast oxidation, slow oxidation or a four lows pattern.  This is an example of a type of energy locking that occurs in our bodies.


Preferred minerals.  Our bodies use various minerals, in particular, as crutches or supports when it does not have enough of the proper nutrients to keep alive.  Here are examples.


Cadmium.  The heavy metal cadmium is a very powerful biochemical crutch.  It supports the sodium level in the tissues, and by so doing helps to maintain the sodium/potassium ratio.  To get cadmium, people smoke cigarettes or marijuana, both of which have some in the proper form to act as a crutch.

Unfortunately, cadmium is quite toxic to the body, but it will keep one alive for a while.  For details, read Cadmium on this site.


The oxides.  Another set of crutches we call the oxides or amigos.  These are oxide forms of a number of minerals including iron, manganese, aluminum, and, at times, chromium, selenium, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, lithium and perhaps others.

These are very irritating to the body.  However, the way in which they irritate the body stimulates the adrenal glands, which helps maintain the sodium level and the sodium/potassium ratio when the body is weak.

In other words, the amigos function as energy locks – locking up to keep a person alive when he or she is malnourished or out of balance.  For details about them, read Iron, Manganese And Aluminum – The Amigos.


            Other toxic metals. They either occupy enzyme binding sites or through other mechanisms stimulate, balance, and hold the body in ways that allow it to function when out of balance or malnourished.  These include copper, mercury, lead, nickel and others.


Adhesions.  This is a type of scarring and fibrosis of the tissues that also functions, at times, as a way to keep the body going when it is weak.  For details, please read Adhesions on this website.




            These take the form of neuroses, often, or fixations that keep a person functioning mentally in the face of stress, inability to think clearly or process information, or other mental and emotional difficulty.

            One encounters these often.  People will focus on that which they can control, for example, such as a habit like smoking, rather than truly cope with their problems.  One may think that a habit such as smoking cigarettes or marijuana is not under the person’s control, but in fact it gives a person a sense of control to know they can alter their consciousness and body activity on their own.

            All energy locks are really compensations or adaptations to stress that limit a person, but support the person’s ability to cope with life.




The science that recognizes these energy locks the most is Jin Shin Jyutsu, originally taught to the world by Mrs. Mary Burmeister and her two sisters.

These women learned about them in Japan and brought this knowledge to the Western world.  They learned of 26 energy locks throughout the body.  As these are released or opened, subtle energy flows better and one feels much better.  Factors that cause the locks to close up are weakness, malnutrition, too much stress, anger, fear and perhaps other negative emotions.  Love, gratitude, relaxation and rest help them to open up.
