So what is Kundalini actually? This mysterious word that brings much speculation and even confusion. Some sources say it helps you achieve superhuman powers; some say you can go bonkers if you don’t do it correctly, so its better to avoid it totally.
So then, since its so scary, what makes you even want to explore it in the first place?
What is so great about Kundalini?
The word Kundalini is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Kundal’ meaning coiled up. It describes the primitive dormant energy coiled up 3 and a half times at the base of the spine. At the base of every human body’s spine, there is a triangular bone named Sacrum (or the Muladhar, which is just above the root Muladhara Chakra). You could feel it if you reach back with your fingers to find the base of your spine on your back.
The word ‘Sacrum‘ comes from the Latin word ‘Os Sacrum‘, meaning ‘Holy Bone‘. It was a medical term used by Greeks and Romans, and this ‘Sacrum’ bone was known to be the last bone to be destroyed when a body was burnt. thus giving it supernatural powers. Egyptians also held this bone to be very valuable and considered it the seat of special power.
The Kundalini, which is said to nourish life forces inside us, has also been given the name ‘Serpent Power‘ because of the way it is coiled up. When awakened, it travels upwards in a circular manner (thus the word “serpent” to describe it), piercing through Chakras, washing out debris stuck in each Chakra, and enabling us to self actualise our hidden potential. It has been described in great details from the Upanishads and Yoga Scriptures.
Of all Yogas, the Yoga to awaken Kundalini is considered the most supreme. Guru Vashistha asserted that Kundalini is the seat of absolute knowledge. Ancient sages, rishis, saints, and spiritual adepts all consider the awareness of the presence of this primordial energy Kundalini within the human body to be the highest knowledge.
The undeveloped potential of your brain, in all creative, artistic as well as intellectual fields blossom under a Kundalini awakening. A common belief is that the brain tends to slow as you age. Contrary to that, an individual with an awakened and active Kundalini Shakti will not only become smarter, wiser, and more creative as he/she ages; but will also advance steadily on a path of self actualisation.
Chakras are not woo woo concepts found in story books. Chakras are real, science proven vortexes of energy that existed throughout time; from Chakras came the universe, the rocks, plants, animals and subsequently – man. And now, Chakras exist like an encoded maze for us to navigate towards enlightenment.
Although enlightenment does not happen overnight, embarking on the Kundalini journey will bring profound insight into what drives our primary behaviors, our personalities, our habits, fears and desires. The difference between wanting a villa on Beverly Hills and wanting to be free from suffering, is that one is material and one is spiritual. But the pathway to achieve both is similar.
A Kundalini awakening does not guarantee you that promotion nor that Beverly Hills villa, but it lets you see clearly why you are not getting there yet. And if you should choose to, you can use this tool as a GPS and a weed cutter. Your manifestation power will increase across both material and spiritual planes.
So many people have asked – “I’m not sure about the spiritual path, maybe I’m not ready yet. What is the difference between doing it now and doing it later in life, when I’m older?”
Well, if you could have a million dollars, would you rather have it now or later?
