described the Material Forces and the Forces Of Consciousness both come from the same Source of Oneness or Unity often called the Void.
Experientially the Column actually goes down, through the Earth but into lower dimensions. While meditating you can actually travel down this column with your consciousness and explore these dimensions for yourself. Of course for most people the Column is quite blocked as are the lower chakras which will make it impossible to take your consciousness down. After you have cleared enough emotional and energetic turmoil in your lower centers you will be able to descend and explore.
Besides being connected to these lower dimensions through the inter-dimensional gateways of the lower chakras, the Hara and the Column, our physical and etheric/chi bodies are actually made up of the energies and forces from below. The chakras and Column feed the physical and energy bodies with the necessary forces for their survival. If the chakras are blocked then the health of the organism will diminish as will conscious contact with the lower dimensions.
Although there are many dimensions below and there are many forces and energies in these dimensions there are four main ones that relate to life on Earth and to our spiritual awakening. These include ‘chi’, ‘ching’, ‘jing’ and ‘kundalini’. These will be briefly described. The Column, chakras and Hara also relate to these forces so the sections on these will expand your knowledge.
Chi is the life force energy that permeates the physical body and gives us life. We receive chi from air, food, water, and the sun. The chi received from these sources is digested by our etheric body (chi body) and then becomes a part of our life-force chi. The life-force chi circulates through the system of meridians or channels which permeate the body.
The organs all have an energetic reservoir which holds and supports them. If you lose a physical organ you will still have this energetic part which will continue to function on the chi level, although often not as well as if the physical organ was still there. The organ reservoirs transform the life-force chi into the type of chi that the particular organ needs. For example liver chi is different to kidney chi. The system of
