Kundalini Shakti resides in a coiled form (also known as Serpent Energy) at the bottom of our spinal cord. Once the Kundalini Shakti gets “diksha” (direction), it starts flowing from the bottom of our spine where the brain can completely alchemize its energy into vital hormones and higher spiritual energy. Once a full Kundalini has been awakened, it completes the circuit from the genital parts to the brain through the spine.

"As fire when not kindled gives only smoke, but when kindled, the illuminating flame springs forth, so it is with love. It is blind when undeveloped, but, when its fire is kindled, the flame that lights the path of the traveler from mortality to everlasting life springs forth. The secrets of earth and heaven are revealed to the possessor of the loving heart." Hazrat Inayat Khan.x #yoga #meditation #Buddhism #Christianity #pranayama #Kriya #Taoism #sufism Dominic Jai :-)
