The Forgotten Feet Chakra Part II
Please read the prequel to this article: The Forgotten Chakras: The Feet
In the previous article, we discussed the importance of the health of the feet chakra and their strategic importance in the daily centering and grounding activities. We cannot stress enough their significance for those that are called to perform the healing arts: though energetic healing, spiritual counseling or any other metaphysical activity.
Regarding initiation, according to ancient traditions, the feet are the very last before one can graduate in various schools of wisdom because they are related to the 12th initiation. Symbolically, the 12th initiation is associated with the 12th sign of Pisces. It is no surprise to notice that the feet are the part of the physical body that relate to the last sign of the Zodiac wheel. It is not a surprise to connect the dots and realize that the symbol of the Christian era is the Fish. It signifies that everyone that accomplishes the trials required by this last stage can stand on their own two feet as a completely self-realized Human being.
It is said that during the last supper, Christ Jesus performed the ceremony known as the washing of the feet for his apostles. This is one of the most significant gestures of love and devotion from a master to his disciples: the last of the Christic Initiation.
The feet chakra are no conventional energy centers. They relate not only to the energies of grounding and manifesting of our live purposes, but they also retain the memories of the many paths our soul has trailed on earth and beyond through our previous lifetimes.The washing of the feet was a ritual performed to "wash" away all the karmic residuals from the disciples and apostles before they could start their ministries.
Description of External Points for the Feet Chakra
The foot chakra is an energy vortex that extends downward from the sole and correspondingly is mirrored and extends upward from the top of the foot.
The Right Foot:
“I will keep you on the right path.”
Point1 Out top-outward direction: express the collection of energies accumulated through “questionable acts to others” in this lifetime.
Point 2 Out top inward direction: the reservoir or storehouse of all questionable deeds towards others we have accrued during past lives due to started rages against others that stepped on us.
The right foot is also responsible for the ability to perform astral travels and to ensure good restful sleep.
“…For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.”
Energy work on the right foot can release past sanskaras, which are holographic memories of karmic deeds already learned, and open us to do towards others in an unconditional and unattached way. All the accumulated energies in the right foot are the result of the struggle for influence, power, and dominance: the real concept of stepping upon others. The accurate meaning of this chakra is not to allow people to step on us. It should be a protector chakra, but we as humans tend to overdo things and get caught up in the energy of egoic revenge. In other words, our inherent predisposition for taking the wrong action against others for the indulgence of Self. The energetic polarities of this foot are mostly male.
The Left Foot: Central Chakra (description of the external points)
“I will keep you on the ascension path so that you may absorb again failed lessons.”
The left foot stores mainly a feminine type of energy; playful, nurturing and encouraging. It retains the registries of all your accomplishments and realizations, the life lessons and a plethora of experiences of your soul that were learned and incorporated into your life theme, your energetic blueprint. It expresses the joy of accomplishments and the positive influence on all the lives one has touched. This is your balance point of our personal free will choices. It is a point where actively we can experience the karmic balance as an outcome of our past experiences in lifetimes.
“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
Point1. Left foot out top –outward direction. Expression of the energy gathered through lifetimes lived under the sphere of the Oversoul.
Point2. Left foot out top – inward direction. Contains the essence of a joyful being that is creating one’s future incarnations, which are susceptible to adjustments up until they are brought into play in the right divine time.
Point3.Left foot under the sole – outward direction. Vortex where the karma of past lifetimes balances itself.
Point4.Left foot under the sole – inward direction. The energetic point that stores constructive memories from lifetimes where lessons were actively learned and had a positive outcome, even when the experiences were not comfortable.
