Do you have a foot whorl?

I’ve just spent 10 days in the bush exploring foot prints instead of hand prints.
Fascinating how much one can tell about what’s going on just by looking at a few imprints in the sand.
Just like hand prints you can get a pretty clear picture of what’s going on.

As the prints reveal, here’s what was out and about.

So while on the subject of footprints, I thought I’d show you something equally fascinating

- the foot print of a well known Hindu monk.

I was surprised to see the beautiful whorl on the ball of his foot. Apparently the Buddha had this marking too.

What does it mean?
I have no idea but here is a theory from India:
It is regarded as a spiritual symbol is both Hinduism and Buddhism and it is said that Lord Krishna had them on his feet (see above) and often statues of the Buddha are depicted with them if he is in lotus posture with the soles of his feet turned up. It is said to be found on the feet of spiritually evolved people.
We don’t tend to explore human footprints in the West as much as is done in warmer climates.
Don’t just sit there.
Take off your socks, stockings and shoes and explore yet another unexplored facet of your soul/soles…
Who knows, maybe you have one too.

  • very nice ……..And interesting post

  • Thistlekms

    I wish we knew more about this! I have whorls on both feet :)

  • Kelli

    Was curious, Yes, checked it out & have it on both feet. Our feet in dreams relate to our foundation, our beliefs & understanding.

    Interesting – that area relates to DIVINE LOVE & it’s located in our HIGHER HEART (thymus) area. It’s about TRANSCENDING physical form. Higher consciousness. Contains our DNA patterning, our karmic architecture, how we’re wired up, plus PL info. That particular area is a BRIDGE between heart & head/ emotion & intellect/ body & soul.

    Very interesting Jena, thank you for sharing.

  • Whorl on left, loop on right. :) Fun!

    What else do you know about reading feet?

  • Rey

    Hi Jena, that was quite fascinating. You wouldn’t believe this but I have the very same ball on the ball of my feet too. You would be amazed to know that I don’t have a single whorl, I have one whorl beneath each toe. I never knew their importance, no one in my family has it. Thanks for the information, I guess I am a bit special.

    Hi Jena,

    The whorl on the foot print is highly significant in India.First the feet are an important place from where energie and knowledge are flowing.It is why most of the Indians as a sign of respect touch the feet of their teachers,Guru and elders.In Sanskrit the whorl is named as Shanka meaning “conch”.It is an attribute of Lord Vishnu (from whom Krishna is an avatar)and symbolize “ether”(akash) element.It is said that by blowing the conch (usually at the end of rituals and prier)we reproduce the sound of the primal matrix from where all creation extended till now(“at the beginning was the verb…”).So in my knowledge,to have a whorl on both feet means a person who has the ability to spontaneously tune to his or her highness (or with spiritual practice) recollecting knowledge spontaneously from previous incarnation or just knowledge as its core in the matrix.So those person are spiritually oriented, ,knowledgeable and definitely disposed to lets they feet print on the spiritual adventure of human kind!

    Interesting – the feet of Buddha has the conch on one foot and what looks like Surya, the sun on the other. I have whorls on both.

    And on 9/10 fingers too. Richard read me twice a couple of years ago.

  • Sujit

    Hi Jena,

    I was searching for meaning of having whorl on foot. Stopped at your article. I have the whorl on my right foot at the same location as depicted in the image shared by you in the article. Wanted to know if this matters or has something relevant from spiritual point of view.


    • Hi Sujit, I am busy researching this and have started to make footprints as well as hand prints of my clients to build up a data base.
      I think it has something to do with grounding or helping a new consciousness ground here on Earth. But not sure. Need to collect accurate data.
      Could you please send me your hand and footprints and the story of your life so far?
