Kundalini – Awakening The Snake

Kundalini stems from yogic philosophy which is an indwelling spiritual energy that when awakened will purify the subtle body and ultimately bestow the state of Yoga. In Hindu Mythology, this energy appears in the form of a snake that lies coiled at the base of our spine, hence the name Kundalini which is Sanskrit for “coiled”. It is referred to as the Sacred Fire or Coiled Serpent, which is represented as a goddess or sleeping serpent and is a dormant force waiting to be awakened. Kundalini Yoga is a style of Yoga that aims to awaken this energy and send the snake moving up your spine all the way to your brain, to reside with the Sahasrara Chakra, resulting to infinite bliss and sublime happiness. Kundalini – Awakening the Snake causes awareness and spiritual enlightenment.

Kundalini Yoga was introduced by Yogi Bhajan to the West in 1969. This includes Yoga poses or deep meditation which are spiritual practices that can awaken the Kundalini. To understand the movement of Kundalini better, you must familiarize yourself and have adequate knowledge of the nervous system, the spinal cord in particular because the Seven Chakras are believed to be found here. The Seven Chakras are comprised of the heart, throat, pineal gland, pituitary gland, basic survival instincts, ego, and sexuality. Continue reading
