Other 12-fold Divisions

The 12-fold division of the manifested body Function Energy directly corresponds to the 12-fold division of the Zodiac energies in  Western Astrology.  The procession of the 12-body Function Energy begins with Lung at peak at 4 am in the morning. It is followed every two hours by the Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, etc. Their order corresponds directly to the order of the 12-fold astrological energies of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc.

The correspondence goes even further, since each of the four western elemental triplicities, fire, earth, air, and water, corresponds to one of the four groups of chest, finger, face, and toe flows.

by function

Note.  The common denominator of the flows given in the furthermost right column  in the table relates to commonality in their function rather than their actual pathways. That distinction is not apparent for the finger flows,  since they all go through SEL 13. Yet, not all chest flows flow through the area of SEL 15. SEL 15 is chosen as their common denominator since it brings vitality to life. Similarly, SEL 23 brings mental and emotional balance, just as the Face flows.  SEL 14 Nourishes and Sustains just as the Toe flows, and SEL 13 is about Generation and Regeneration.
