What is Kundalini?

The Kundalini is a pool of energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine and which can be and often is, accessed, allowing the student/victim to use the energy for health, spirituality and creating their life as they were meant to live it.

It's my belief that many people have had full or even partial awakenings of their kundalini energy and honestly don't recognize it.

Many of these people go through life seemingly unaffected, some seek higher spiritual planes and others suffer from epilepsy, schizophrenia or worse.

Lately Kundalini has become a fad in certain parts of the metaphysical community and in some ways has become the ultimate New Age ego trip, although I feel that many of those folks are completely missing the point.

A persons Kundalini can be awakened through an emotional trauma, a near death experience, a sharp blow to the coccyx or purposefully through meditation and study.

Those who seek to purposefully access their Kundalini can choose several methods, including Kundalini Yoga (extremely safe and takes upwards of 10-20 years to accomplish) and Hoshin Roshi Ryu (a "Martial Art" form created to specifically awaken the kundalini through meditation and physical training).

I don't believe that there is a 'wrong' or a 'right' way to awaken your kundalini and there are benefits to most any path chosen.

In his book "Pathnotes of an American Ninja Master", Dr. Glenn Morris goes into great detail about his Kundalini Awakening and the effects it had (and still has) on his life, and in some of my other articles I talk about my own experiences and some of the things I'm still learning and experiencing. There are many exercises and experiments that one can do to help awaken the kundalini and I'll write about some of those in upcoming articles.
