What Is Kundalini?

Updated on November 14, 2021


Defining Kundalini

Many define Kundalini as an experience. When the Kundalini awakens, it moves up the chakras and energy centers from the root chakra and through the crown chakra. It creates a powerful force that stimulates the entire being into an "awakening."

This interpretation of Kundalini is only one small aspect of the power of Kundalini and how it works with the individual.

Kundalini can be experienced continuously and once awake, remains awake. It is a soul energy that defines one's energy and creates a play with energetic life forces so one can move forward in various areas of their life.

Breaking the Myth of Kundalini

Kundalini as a jargon, new age term is interpreted as one experience. Many would refer to it as a serpent force that would move through the body. Others would spread the myth that it was related to one awakening experience that you would momentarily have but would then mystically disappear.

Kundalini is a continuous experience. The more that one works with this soul energy and awakens it, the more that they awaken to their power. There are Kundalini meditations and Yoga postures that are used specifically to keep this energy clear while allowing it to flow through the energy bodies.

As one is able to keep this power awake, they are able to become more creative, filled with expression and can move into their soulful and spiritual power.

What Stops the Kundalini Force?

Most of us stop the Kundalini force from working effectively through our lives. We have one experience that is created through this energetic path then the Kundalini "goes to sleep." However, powerful gurus will continuously work with the force while creating energetic interpretations to assist with the power of the Kundalini serpent.

To continue to work with this energy form, one must remain clear in all energy bodies. If there are any blocks, it stops the Kundalini from working. Yoga and meditation practices allow this force to continue to be present in one life and to play out with powerful energetic forces. Clearing your energetic forces to work with Kundalini then allows you to continue to work with the creativity and power that you hold.

Kundalini and the Divine

There are many that associate the Kundalini awakening and power with the Divine. It is a direct link to the energy body and form that connects one to "Source," "God" or other interpretations of this divine force. The more that one works with the Kundalini, the more that energetic blocks are cleared. It assists one with the creation of their divine power and amplifies the concept of one's personal spiritual connection to The Divine.

Processes to Awaken Kundalini

To awaken the Kundalini energetic force, one can work with Yoga or meditation. This assists with clearing all energetic blocks while developing a different relationship and awakening to the Divine. Following are some basic practices for Kundalini awakening and maintenance.

1. Fire breath. This is a deep and fast breathing method that allows you to awaken Kundalini. You will breathe from your diaphragm at a fast pace. Deep breathing through your stomach for a 5 - 10 minute time frame then allows you to clear energetic blocks so your Kundalini can continue to awaken.

2. Yoga. There are specific Kundalini movements through Yoga that awaken the Kundalini life force. The practices include a series of movements that work specifically with the sacral (first) chakra for awakening.
