Have you ever wondered why snakes are used by the medical profession to represent healing? Sometimes you'll see one snake wrapped around a pole, and sometimes you'll see two. The one-snake symbol represents the ancient Rod of Aesculapius, and the two-snake symbol represents the Wand of Hermes, also known as the Caduceus. However, even though the American Medical Association chose the Rod of Aesculapius as its official symbol in 2005, it is the Caduceus that more accurately represents healing, and here is the reason why:
The primary way that Photon Lifeforce Energy enters the body is through a fontanelle - or "fountain" - located at the top of the skull. It comes in through the anterior fontanelle and descends to the area of the perineum, winding its way down around the spine like a snake. Then, it winds its way back up the spine like a snake, and exits through the posterior fontanelle. At those places along the spine where the downward and upward energies meet, there are rotating vortices of energy called 'chakras' that distribute the photon energy to the body. Each chakra overlays an endocrine gland and regulates the energy it sends to that gland and its related organs and systems.
The seven primary chakras, located along the spine, overlay the endocrine glands and regulate the energy moving in and out of those glands. These seven chakra-regulated glands are: the pineal, pituitary, thyroid, heart, adrenals, pancreas and gonads. The heart functions as an endocrine gland, because it secretes hormones known as atrial natriuretic peptides. The Heart Chakra regulates the flow of Lifeforce Energy to the heart, thymus, lungs, liver, and circulating blood. It expands and contracts according to our positive and negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. When we "open our heart", we are actually opening our Heart Chakra, and expanding our biofield.
Energy entering and leaving the body has both a downward/upward flow, and a back-to-front flow. On the back-to-front flow, energy comes into each chakra from the backside of the body, and flows out into the world through the front of the body. The combination of vertical and horizontal flows of energy is what causes the chakras to spin. Healthy people have chakras that spin clockwise. Chakras that spin counter-clockwise are an indication of an energy blockage, which means there is a physical ailment in the area of the reverse spinning chakra.
