In Sanskrit, Kundal means a coil, and so kundalini has been described as ‘that which is coiled’. Kundalini literally means coiled serpent. In yoga, the symbolic serpent is a source of energy – an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force called Shakti -, which lies coiled up at the base of our spine and when you release it through practice, then it leads towards enlightenment. Kundalini awakening is a process of deep meditation and enlightenment. Our body has 7 energy points – on top of the head is Shiva and on the bottom of the spine is shakti and there are 5 more energy points in between making them 7 points of energy. Our body is a container of Kundalini Shakti. We can chant a Mantra linked to each chakra until the kundalini arises, we can even use visualization by seeing a mental image of it but according to Vedanta mantras travel at the speed of sound which is less than light speed , and therefore channelling emotions are the fastest way for awakening Kundalini Shakti. So we can use either or a combination of Mantra, visualization and emotions in our Kundalini Meditation.
The very basics of the science, state that a human has seven major levels of existence, each corresponding to a station within his own body, like vortices or energy fields of that particular realm of existence,
so, we have
1) Muladhara, the base chakra below the spinal cord, where kundalini sleeps. The Mūlādhāra Chakra is the seat of the unconscious. When a snake is sleeping, therefore in an unconscious state, it appears to be peaceful and harmless, but in a wakeful state it can be extremely menacing and dangerous. When the Mūlādhāra Chakra becomes active , qualities that we had not suspected were within us, such as destructive rage, all-consuming passion, excessive desires or deep-seated anger, can surface and astound us. Or, on the other hand, we can also experience wonderful feelings of freedom, joy, harmony and closeness to God.
2) Svadhisthan, the second chakra at the root of the progenitive organ, which, appropriately, stands for the procreative need of the individual or race. The Svadhishthana Chakra is situated at the lower end of the Sacrum. Its Mantra is VAM.
The Svadhishthana Chakra marks the second level of our development. The evolution of consciousness towards pure, human consciousness begins in the Svadhishthana Chakra. It is the seat of the subconscious mind where all life experiences and impressions since the beginning of our existence in the womb are stored. The Muladhara Chakra is the storehouse of our Karmas, however these are activated in Svadhishthana Chakra.
3) Manipura, the third chakra, at the navel, symbolising the ‘power’ need, a sort of umbilical cord of the individual to his higher potential.
4) Hridaya, the fourth, at the heart, denoting the emotive need. According to Tantric tradition, Anahata chakra, the heart chakra, is just a level or dimension of our being and of the entire manifestation. The Spiritual Heart is more than this. Hridaya: The Spiritual Heart is not just a spark of God; the Spiritual Heart is God.
5) Vishudhha, the fifth at the throat, denoting eloquence. The Throat chakra is the fifth chakra. Located at the center of the neck at the level of the throat, it is the passage of the energy between the lower parts of the body and the head. The function of the Throat chakra is driven by the principle of expression and communication.
6) Ajna, the sixth, at the forehead, also the third eye, or gyan chakshu, denoting intuition, again, appropriately, the sixth sense. The two physical eyes see the past and the present, while the third eye reveals the insight of the future. The third eye means another dimension of perception has opened up , so that you can see beyond the obvious physical.
7) Sahasra, the seventh, over the roof of the head, meaning literally, the thousand petalled, or, symbolically, where the individual becomes, anant, endless, or the universe itself.
