This is an illustration of the core model of the etheric body. The etheric body is comprised of organized patterns of flowing energy known as prana. This energy flows in a two phase cycle. This illustration demonstrates what is known as the open phase. The center green spiral is known as the vertical core current. In the open phase this current is moving inferiorly from bregma to between the feet. The green snake currents are known as the caduceus. In the open phase the caduceus is moving inferiorly from the ajna chakra to the coccyx. The different colored currents on each side of the midline are known as the long currents. There are ten long currents. Five on each side of the midline. In the open phase the long currents are moving inferiorly from lambda to the tips of the fingers and toes. The green bands wrapped around the etheric body are known as the circular currents. In the open phase of the etheric body the circular currents are moving clockwise (toward the right hand) from the anterior midline to the posterior midline. The balanced movement of the etheric body may be compromised by trauma. All movements of the etheric body must be reestablished in their correct spin and direction for neutral balance and healing to occur.
