I allow you the flexibility to bend down and move around. I am controlled primarily by your kidney energies. The kidney energies relate to fear and willpower.
When you have issues around your willpower, they will reflect in disturbances in my function.
You use willpower to help overcome fear – the other energy of the kidneys. Those two opposing forces within the kidneys represent the two opposing forces of the Fire and Water balances in the dualistic yang/yin functions of the kidneys.
When, as a child, you wanted to summon your willpower in defiance, you would lock your knees. You use
willpower to help overcome fear—the other energy of the kidneys. In modern society,
