The Chakra System
The Chakras are whirling wheels of energy, which exist on the etheric level.
Each of the seven major centres is joined together at intervals along the spine.
They are constantly moving, absorbing currents of energy. A free flow of life-giving energy is vital to the health and well-being of the person. All the chakras interpenetrate one another.
Each chakra also corresponds to a particular colour frequency, and with a particular ductless gland or organ in the physical body. In a healthy being, the chakras absorb and distribute energy evenly, and in an unhealthy one, toxins may begin to collect in a particular area, causing physical, emotional or mental problems. They are constantly moving, absorbing currents of energy.
The chakras are an essential part of our bio-energy system. A free flow of life-giving energy is vital to the health and well-being of the individual. The electro-magnetic energy circulating around the body stimulates various glands thus maintaining hormonal balance and affecting our whole metabolism.

So although the chakra system exists in the etheric body, it has close connection and interrelates with the physical body.
The chakra conducts and filters a constant flow of energy through us.
