What Is Kundalini Energy?
For starters, do you know who Kundalini is? In Hindu mythology, Kundalini is a serpent goddess who sleeps at the base of the spine and coiled three and a half times around the first chakra.

This goddess represents the unfolding of the divine Shakti energy, as it energizes the potential of life itself, and all the things in the world.

Furthermore, under certain circumstances, the Kundalini energy awakens and it rises through the body, opening the chakras as she moves in a snake-like fashion. During the release of the stored energies, and blocking of energies, it has been said that the movement of this goddess is so intense, that it can sometimes be painful and it can also lead to hallucination.

The circumstances that trigger this kind of awakening varies, but it's often caused by extended periods of fasting, meditation, yoga, stress, trauma, near death experience, and psychedelic drugs.

Also, this can be the result of the chakras being connected to one another. Where, once the chakras grow in size, the spinning of one can affect the spinning of the other.

In a nutshell, Kundalini is the healing force that can also be unpleasant at times. This effect can last for several minutes, hours, days, months, and even years.

For now, we're going to discuss how Kundalini energy can help you.

How Kundalini Energy Can Help You
Practicing Kundalini can help you gain complete realization, because it's also considered to be one of the most powerful energies inside the body.
Aside from that, awakening and working with the Kundalini can also bring a lot of amazing benefits, such as:

Love Grows
Your emotional pain will be released and it'll completely disappear with the help of Kundalini energy, giving your heart a room for love to flourish. Try to imagine this; the centre of your heart is similar to a lotus flower that's slowly opening. Thus, a never ending fountain of pure love flows from this flower.

Protection
Once your energy level rises, it'll be challenging for outside energies to neither penetrate nor manipulate your super charged aura. Through the help of the Kundalini energy, you'll have the golden 'second skin' that forms over your physical skin, serving as another layer of protection against everything.

Gives You Power
Kundalini energy gives you the power that you can use for several purposes. This includes an increase in your energy levels. Furthermore, you can also use the power of healing, not only to yourself, but to others as well.
Your mind will be a great tool that can help you move great amounts of energy, as you influence every living creature in this world.

Psychic Abilities
As you awaken your Kundalini energy; your third eye also clears and expands together with your other chakras. Based on studies, this expansion is limitless, that a person begins to experience everything in the universe.

Cleansing
As you raise your Kundalani energy levels, you're also cleaning your nadis, aura, and chakras. Thus, you're eliminating the negative energies that you absorbed from the environment, including emotional and psychic attacks.
Additionally, your Samskaras are also cleansed. These are the veils that inhibit you from experiencing the realities of pure awareness and emptiness. Past life karmas are included in this.

Spiritual Growth
The Kundalini energy strips away the negative elements in the body as it opens your energy system. Thus, your spiritual growth greatly accelerates and your awareness becomes remarkable.

Common Reasons Why People Decide to Practice Kundalini
A lot of people practice Kundalini for several reasons. For one, some are advised to try this form of meditation in order to relieve stress, relax, and attain inner peace. Then, there are those who are just simply curious. It doesn't matter what your real reason is, everyone can take part and experience the benefits of Kundalini yoga.

Common Signs of Kundalini Awakening
> Cold or heat in the system, or running along the chakra centres.
> Tingling sensation in the body and even in the brain region. Some describe this as ants walking, flushes of energy, or tickling of energy.
> Twitching of muscles.

Effects of Regular Practice
> you’ll feel healthier, happier, more productive, more relaxed, and more creative.
> You'll experience a positive transformation in your life and relationship. Likewise, you'll also feel more fulfilled and satisfied.
> This can boost your energy levels, allowing you to enjoy the greater levels of physical well being.
> Those that practice Kundalini on a regular basis are considered to be more intuitive and they have the higher chances of attracting new opportunities in life.
> A great way to rediscover yourself.

How It Works
If you want to activate your Kundalini chakra, it is recommended to perform certain exercises, such as the Mooladhara or the base root chakra. Through this, your activated chakras will pull the energy up from the bottom of your body.

This energy will combine with the Kundalini in the sacrum as it rises up from the spine, filling up the chakras one after another with liquid, 'golden' energy. This liquid purifies and expands the chakras inside the body.

Once the Kundalini energy bursts out, the crown chakra that's positioned on the top of the head will then meet the celestial energy coming down going above. The explosion of energy will affect the aura and this will cover the skin and protect the person.

Safety and Precautions
Due to the fact that Kundalini is considered as an advanced form of exercise, it's never advisable to perform this if you don't have any knowledge about meditation and energy work. Likewise, having a healing system, such as Chi Gong, Reiki 2, and Pranic Healing can be of great help as you deal with buried issues of releasing.

Here are some of the simple rules that should be followed when practicing Kundalini:
> This should never be performed lying down. It should always be done in an upright position.
> Never practice more than once a day. Likewise, some people find it beneficial to practice every other day.
> Simple cooling down exercises should be performed right after raising your Kundalini.

Overall, Kundalini practice has a number of benefits that you can experience, especially if you'll practice this form of meditation daily. In fact, you can even achieve complete realization.

Treat these things as similarly important to love and friendship and I think you have a much better chance to lead a happy life.
