Human structure and function - the constituent parts of what makes us

The physical and subtle universe provides the basis and ongoing support of our existence and as 'dark matter in space connects the parts of the universe, we are connected by consciousness. Dark matter (and even string theory) and consciousness maybe related to each other, yet consciousness is the other side of the coin from matter as we all know that when our consciousness departs at death, our bodies decay.


This aspect of energy permeates our lives, telling us we are hungry, what's going on in the next room and who's calling when the phone rings.á When respected, it guides our lives harmoniously or gets us into hot water when we disrespect.

Consciousness is connected via our subtle body made up of the Kundalini, Nadis and Aura.

The Kundalini

Caught between heaven and earth, the Kundalini is our power grid.á It is plugged into heaven above and earth below creating an energy exchange which fuels our body and being.á Modern medical science does not agree, yet this understanding was accepted over 6000 years ago.

The kundalini is represented in medicine as the two snakes which entwine the medical staff, a symbol from our distant past which co-incidentally has a great similarity to DNA.

The Chakras

We have seven major chakras, these intersect the kundalini in a similar way as the transformers on our countries high voltage power grid reduce the current for household use. This energy assists our bodies and minds to function affecting our moods or disposition.

We all know if we're low in energy, we don't get much done!á This energy is conducted around our bodies by the endocrine system.

The endocrine system

Interpreting spiritual energy in inter-cellular communication, the endocrine glands are a system which secretes different types of hormones directly into the bloodstream and transports them along nadi's to regulate the body functions. Includes the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal body or pineal gland, thyroid, parathyroids and adrenal glands

Nervous system

Collects, transfers and processes information with brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.

Respiratory system

The organs used for breathing, the pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs and diaphragm. The lungs in particular affect and help regulate the endocrine, nervous and digestive systems.

Circulatory system

Pumps and channels blood to and from the body and lungs with heart, blood and blood vessels.

Lymphatic system

Simply the sewage system of the body, its structures transferá lymph between tissues and the blood stream removing wastes from the body; includes the lymph fluid, nodes and vessels.

Digestive system

The digestion and processing food with salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, small and large intestines, rectum and anus.

Urinary system

Kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra involved in fluid balance, electrolyte balance and excretion of urine.

Muscular system

The muscles and connective tissues providing locomotion, maintaining posture and producing heat. Excludes smooth & cardiac muscle.

Skeletal system

Our hard structural support and protection of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.

Reproductive system

Sex organs, such as ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, mammary glands, testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles and prostate
