Orca Hot Foot

Postby David Dalton » 13 Aug 2015, 05:49

Here is the opening paragraph of
http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/orca.html , which is a subsubpage
of my Salmon on the Thorns web page :

The orca hot foot occurred in November of 1995, at the Vancouver
aquarium orca pool. I did a yoga mula-bandha (deep, rooted,
raspy, my niece said mine sounds like the wind) breath near the
orcas. I think the female, Bjossa, was closest but am not sure;
there were also one or two other orcas (Finna, Hyack?) and I
think one dolphin in the pool, and belugas in a nearby pool. I
got an extremely strong, almost electric shock on my right
foot, which I had to raise slightly. This is like the stories
of druids with one foot raised, I guess, though that is
probably related instead to to the yoga "tree pose" where you
stand on one foot and place the other foot high on the thigh.
Also, for druids, the harp shape may be related to the shape
of cetacean bones.

I'm interested in finding out if there are any past parallels
to my orca hot foot in mythology, folklore, or history.
