(The Sorcerers’ Crossing by Taisha Abelar)
He picked up a twig and drew an oval shape on the soft ground.
Then he added a horizontal line that transected it midway.
Pointing to the two partitions he explained that the double is divided into a lower and an upper section which correspond roughly in the physical body to the abdomen and chest cavities.
Two different currents of energy circulate in these two sections.
In the lower one circulates the original energy we had while still in the womb.
In the upper section circulates the thought energy which enters the body at birth with the first breath. He said that thought energy is enhanced by experience and rises upward into the head.
The original energy sinks down into the genital area.
Usually in life these two energies become separated in the double, causing weaknesses and unbalance in the physical body.
He drew another line, this time down the center of the elliptical shape, dividing it lengthwise into two, which, he stated, corresponds to the right and left sides of the body.
These two sides also have two specific patterns of energy circulation.
In the right side, energy circulates up on the frontal part of the double, and down on the back of it. On the left side, energy circulates down on the frontal part of the double, and up on the back.
