Kundalini Energy

Love your spine, loosen your chakras and learn how to expand upon your sensuality


How can you expand on your Tantric knowledge? Let's begin here with an introduction to Chakras - beginning with the base of the spine!
Kundalini energy is the potential form of prana or life force, lying dormant in our bodies. This kundalini energy is awakened – or activated – through disciplinary movement techniques such as yoga and meditation. Kundalini is considered to be the energy of the Divine, which is why it holds such mystery also in the Western world. It derives from the Sanskrit word meaning coiled up snake.
The Function of Kundalini is to awaken energies through the channels from our base of the spine (root chakra) and guide it through up into the crown chakra – thereby inducing self realisation and a conscious state of being. It can alter the mood at a deep cellular level also, alleviating fear and creating the space for deeper love
The Chakras and Kundalini can be activated throughout the bodies; there’s the physical, energetic, ethereal and causal to name a few. However let’s stay simple here, and begin with the seven main energy centres (as per my energetic healing page link for more detail). I’d like to introduce you to this root chakra and get you warmed up! Firstly here’s an outline of the historic reference to Nadi’s (think acupuncture points) and pranic (think breath) aspects that form the basis of this practice and maybe you will get a better understanding of why there’s credence to the power of this ‘life force’ activity when activated
Tao – The primordial power is described that of a Mother. Lao Tze described Kundalini as ‘spirit of the valley’, which never dies.
Buddhist – The lord Buddha spoke of the ‘middle path’ to achieve Nirvana, which is the central channel Sushumna. The secret was only passed down to few serving disciples.
Kundalini Awakening Responses include
  • Feeling energy bursts down the spine
  • Tremors and respiratory change Involuntary body movement and altered states of consciousness
  • Deep inner peace and feelings of electricity through the physical body
  • Sexual arousal that stimulates shift in body awareness and bliss
Kundalini and Sex
Once sexually aroused, the Kundalini energy is activated and rises up the spine, enhancing stronger feelings that most people then react to in terms of genital release. However if we can surrender to this need for physical stimulation or gratification, we can harness the powerful kundalini force and feed it back up within the bodies centres, fuelling each energy centre and reigning in the capacity to experience what is known as a full body orgasm
These changes begin through the etheric and causal bodies, and can then be held in our consciousness for a time until we choose to move it back down to our base chakra region, ready for release!
This is where it’s key for many to understand that the energy here may be blocked which leads to dysfunction such as impotence and PE, or for women – penetrative discomfort or fear. To be able to meditate on the orgasmic state allows a shift in the consciousness, freeing up the block – stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. This is when there is support around ‘letting go of old beliefs’ possibly stuck in the Root (base) chakra
 
The Root Chakra relates to our vitality, survival instincts, “fight or flight” response, and the emotions of anger, jealousy, desire and greed relating surviving the material world. It controls the energy of instincts, physical pain, pleasure, and touch. Imbalance in the Muladhara may manifest as losing interest in survival in the “real world”, physical addictions and obsessions, selfishness, restlessness, volatile emotions and a lack of vitality. The “Muladhara” is situated at the root of the spine. It is the Chakra closest to the Earth, and can be used to ground yourself to Mother Earth, and “release” all that negativity, and recharge yourself!

The Root Chakra color is red, other colors are brown, black and gray. It is the source of the Etheric layer of the aura, which is associated with awareness of the physical body, and physical survival. It is the layer closest to the body, and densest in texture. It can sometimes be seen as a sort of grayish “heat wave” 2-3 inches around the body. It anchors the aura to the physical body. A simple, inexpensive crystal, charm, or piece of Chakra jewelry can help you ground yourself, and keep your peace. Gemstones such as bloodstone, hematite, labodorite, garnet, ruby, black tourmaline, onyx, fire agate, star ruby smoky quartz, and red jasper are helpful in Root Chakra balancing. Using Chakra fragrance oils is a beautiful way to stay grounded and energized. Essential oils and flower essences useful for Root Chakra balance are rosemary, ylang-ylang, frankincense, myrrh, benzoin, patchouli, sandalwood, corn and clematis. Foods that fuel and foster the Root Chakra are root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, parsnips, radishes, beets, and protein rich foods such as meat, eggs, beans, peanut butter, tofu and soy products, and hot spices such cayenne, and pepper, horseradish, hot paprika, and chives.
