What is Kundalini?
Kundalini is your divine energy. A potential form of prana or life force energy that is sleeping, lying dormant, as in unmanifest or inactive in our bodies/human organism. So it is there, but we are not aware of it, we are not conscious of it, so most of us have not experienced this potent energy.
Kundalini is Conceptualised or symbolised as a female snake or serpent coiled up 3 .5 times inside our base Chakra, a component of the subtle body. The base Chakra is located near the base of our spine. In Sanskrit its name is Mooladhara and this is the lowest level of consciousness in a human being, it is the origin of our more instinctual or animal traits such as survival; shelter, food & procreation. Kundalini is waiting there sleeping until we wake her up. When she wakes she will spiral up the spine or Shashumna in the subtle body, ascending through the next 5 charka’s cleansing, cleaning and taking our consciousness with her on her way through.
Kundalini is a residual power of purity or divinity, a reservoir of psychic energy. It is a seed of divine energy, of pure essence, that is inside of every human being. However, the majority of us are yet to realise this energy that lays dormant in the Base Chakra. The seed has not been sprouted!
Kundalini is Shakti energy: Shakti is the feminine energy of which the qualities are creative, dynamic, manifestive, the flowing energy of the universe.
Her ultimate goal is to move from the base Chakra, where she wakes up, to the Crown Chakra where she will met up with her consort Shiva, the masculine energy, the polar opposite. The quality of masculine energy is pure presence, pure consciousness. Shiva & Shakti yearn to be united as one to create harmony & balance, the more presence of Shiva the more flowing of Shakti.
This union is said to be the most extraordinary, wonderful, magical experience.
For this to happen the individual must be at a certain level of polarity integration, i.e. the masculine/feminine, light/dark aspects of the individual are fairly integrated. Ida & Pingala are the psychic, energetic or subtle channels in which the feminine & masculine energy travel on either side of the spine, When they are balanced energy can travel up the central channel Shashumna.
The arousing & raising of Kundalini is said to be the one and only way of attaining divine wisdom. Self-realisation. The awakening of Kundalini is the awakening of, or the remembering of knowledge = Enlightenment.
Kundalini conceals the pure essence of a person, the divine soul is realised through raising Kundalini energy. This is an epic journey but once an individual raises their Kundalini to the point of fully awake, they achieve enlightenment, self-realisation/realised god while in a human body. The soul finds its way home to God, merges with the pure consciousness of Shiva, becomes one with all. (once I was lost, then found… Amazing Grace)
As said before, Kundalini is dormant in the vast majority of human beings, it is waking or rising in a very small portion (In saying that, there are more and more human beings on the Earth that are at or coming close to this evolutionary step, which is very exciting! and people will need guidance and assistance). and a being with fully awakened Kundalini energy is extremely rare! These are the Masters, or enlightened beings, the self-realised people or Holy people.
When Kundalini is fully awake in an individual, it means they have merged their physical body with their subtle body & their soul, representing union of all aspects of themselves, which means they have become WHOLE or integrated as one. Therefore self-realised and realised god. The yogis call this moksha and it is the desired outcome of all spiritual practice. Being wholy is not a label someone can give you, it is a personal process of becoming whole. A Holy person is a Whole person, as in all bodies fully integrated as one enlightened being.
These awakened or enlightened beings have realised their divinity, and are aware of the purpose of humanity and its role in the universe. This union of Shiva & Shakti, the raising of an individuals Kundalini, brings with it; divine intelligence and endows the individual with the ability to connect to the collective consciousness. They then, have what we perceive to be; mystical powers, spiritual knowledge & physic gifts. They can have the ability to see past & future and to see our energetic bodies and blockages. They have the intuition to know what we need to do to work off our karma & evolve to our highest potential in this life.
They are the pioneers, guides and gurus of humanity like; Jesus Christ, I am not saying that all Gurus or spiritual leaders are as powerful as Jesus Christ, but nonetheless we do have enlightened beings on Earth that have these same qualities. They know the key to unlocking Kundalini energy, that is what they are teaching of in all of the spiritual texts in the various cultures & ages; The bible, the Bagavad Gita, the Tantras etc…. they are all talking about the same thing.
Once they have achieved a certain level of awareness, they realise truth and thus these awakened beings, Guru’s & teachers surrender their lives in service to humanity. They compassionately assist and guide others on the path to realise their own divinity and wholeness so that the whole of humanity and the planet continues on its evolutionary path of realisation & higher vibration.
Kundalini is a powerful energy, it is a normal and pre-scripted evolutionary process. A mechanism that is going to raise the level of consciousness in humans, it is how we are going to transcend our current reality. Kundalini contains the highest potential for individuals and humanity as a whole to grow from. It is a sort of spiritual technology/power held in the body, a kind of key or code in the human organism that requires unlocking, and will only awaken in people when they have achieved a certain stage or level in their souls evolution. Many people are arriving at this stage.
Eventually enough individuals will become self-realised that we will arrive at a critical mass of self/god-realised people. Then, we raise the consciousness/vibration of this world. Pretty deep… but it is true.
The more people that find peace, compassion & become enlightened the easier it is for the following people. Its very progressive. It is very hard for the leaders, so humbled by the Gurus, guides and realised people before us.
One day all humans will be enlightened, as that is the direction humanity must go. Then of course it won’t be considered enlightened or enlightened will be the norm! There is always more levels of evolution it just keeps going. There is always higher vibration but I think there are landmark stages.
Raising Kundalini is literally the purpose of human life!! It is the highest divine purpose of an individual and humanity as a whole. So you can stop looking for your life purpose!! Ha ha Actually it is through your life purpose that you find your own path to raising your energy and serving humanity.
sometimes through a trauma or sickness… through the process they progress to a higher level of consciousness where they resonate with something, they remember something, and they realise their career and/or life is out of integrity with their divine purpose.
Kundalini is the miracle tool that enables us to realise that we are much more than our bodies, personalities, material possessions & roles that we play in this life. There is a greater purpose to life.
Human life is a gift from god to grow, we cannot grow without form, we need a body to process our karma through and move into compassion and acceptance of all, love of all. To accept and love all, we need to realise that; we have indeed all ‘be there and done that’. Even the areas that we hold the most judgement, holding judgments is actually a little hint that somewhere in your evolution you did that same thing, your unconscious of it, but have not forgiven yourself for it. To forgive someone is really to forgive yourself.
This physical plane of existence (where we are now; Earth) could be looked at as spiritual school and we are only in Kindi!
So were do we start?
Why doesn’t everyone just raise their Kundalini Energy and get on with raising the consciousness of the planet? Sounds easy enough!
Because our Energy is blocked.
What are the blockages?
